Swim Good

And we're back with a new week! How was your (4th of July) weekend? Well here the heat wave officially hit so I've spent pretty much the entire weekend in my bikini :) Hubs and I had a nice date night for our anniversary and ended up at the beach watching the sunset. Life is good!

Coming to think of it, this, -apart from last week's post in my bikini top- is my first post ever in swimwear. I guess I just never got to it. And maybe I also have to be honest with myself and admit that it's one of the things I still had to overcome. As a plus size blogger, I see myself as a body positive activist but that doesn't mean I don't have insecurities of my own. Now, this doesn't mean that I'm afraid to step out in a bikini, but posting it online for the whole world to see... Wellll, that's another thing. Trying to step out of your comfort zone is key, and that's what I'm trying to do, each time I try something new. A bikini is one thing, it could be something completely different the next time. I felt good wearing this and that's what is most important. It's ok to push your boundries a little bit, but do stay true to yourself. If you're really not feeling it, well hey, you're really not feeling it. Let nobody push you to do something you don't want to.

With the swimwear options for us plus size ladies being practically limitless these days, it's even a hard job choosing what to buy. I see so many cute things, and gorgeous cover ups too! I decided to pair this bikini with my old, alltime favorite skirt and I love how it came out.

And now, the time has come to replace your regular clothing with swimwear! I still can't get over this bikini. I absolutely love the crossover straps and the classy, yet sexy look it gives. Yes, I'll be the first to admit it, I felt GOOD wearing this :)

I'm also very fond of cute cover ups to combine with swimwear and when I saw this cute kimono, I just knew I had to pair it with the bikini. HAWT! Since I don't actually own a villa with a big ass pool (one day I will) and I had to take my pics on the "street" I opted for some shorts and sandals to match. The hat was a cute detail but DAYUM, it was toooo hot! I literally sweated my edges out, but let's just say it was my intention to create a "beach hair" look, lol.

This weekend's weather will be smoking hot and the hubby and I get to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary on the 4th of July. To all of you, enjoy and to my Americans, happy 4th of July! Be safe and see you next week!

Snow White moment

And with July arriving, we've officially seen half of 2015 already. Sometimes I just feel it's scary to notice how time flies. I try my best to live in the moment and enjoy, especially since Summer really seems to have arrived here. Today is going to be smoking hot, and we're actually expecting a heat wave. To be real honest, I don't mind one bit (ask me again in a few days, lol). Yesterday has been one of my happiest days this year. I can't help it, but the weather really has an effect on my mood and I know I'm not the only one.

I'm feeling all Snow White, picking flowers and smiling all day. The only thing missing is a blue bird on my shoulder, chirping along :) (and I don't mean Stromae's twitter bird, see video here).

Well, back to my Snow White moment. Of course I had to give it a little twist and make it more "me" by adding my favorite print to the mix. Everything is better with leopard print. Life is better with leopard print...
