I’m so thrilled you stopped by the blog because things are getting REAL over here today.  Not only is this the first time I have ever done a photoshoot in a swimsuit, but I am feeling as fabulous as ever.  Take a look inside yourself and ask, what would make me feel fabulous in a swimsuit right now?   The answer is EVERYTHING!!!   Everything about you should make you feel amazing in your own skin.  We’ve ALL got those extra pounds we want to loose, or that wrinkle we want to tighten, or whatever it is for you, FORGET IT!  You are beautiful, you are chic, and you should feel confident no matter what you’re wearing.

As you can see from other parts of my blog, I LOVE FOOD.  I am all about eating local and trying new restaurants everywhere we go.  Sure, I could probably drop a few pounds, inches, or both… but I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now.  My happiness fuels my confidence.  And I embrace my confidence in knowing that I work out regularly, eat relatively healthy, and ENJOY sharing these parts of my life with you guys.

While I’m not quite confident enough to post a full body photo of myself in a teenie string bikini, its also a good thing to have that kind of self awareness.  I know that right now that wouldn’t be the best thing for my image or my brand.  PLUS on my polls on Instagram YOU guys said that you were shopping for one-pieces right now over bikinis.  I seriously love that the one piece is back in style because I really do feel more confident in them.  My biggest trouble area has always been my stomach, its where I carry most of my weight.  Below you will find some great budget friendly one-pieces to make you feel chic & confident on your next vacay!  I am IN LOVE with the black one piece I am wearing in the photos, its a great price so I’m sure it will sell out soon!

Adorable! I am in love with this swimsuit. I’d prefer a one piece because it just makes me more comfortable. I can’t wait to try them. Thanks for sharing.
