You’ve heard the sayings, when life gives you lemons…make lemonade, a lemonade vodka, gin & tonic, lemon bars, (usually it’s something food or beverage related). Well one of the single best mood lifters for me, is surfing. Maybe not at Malibu with 600 people on a weekend when there is a swell, but most of the time, it makes me feel better, puts things into perspective, is a stress relief, calms me down, makes me smile, and is my go to happy pill. In fact when I am feeling down, (or like lemons are belong chucked at me from all angles) 98% of the time it’s because I haven’t been in the water enough.

So I say, the next time life gives you lemons, squeeze one of them in your hair, and go for a surf.

Maybe you’ll even score some free highlights. More likely from the sun and saltwater though, since the lemon juice will probably rinse off when you hop in the water.

Here’s the thing about gyms: we don’t get along. Throw me into a place with four walls, treadmills and grunting men in tank tops and I’ll be practically clawing at the windows to escape. Nope, I’d rather spend that monthly fee on gear that gets me outside, into the sunshine and onto the water. And you know what? Playing in the Great Outdoors is the best exercise you can get (I didn’t believe it until I took my marathon-running friend on a steep hike—she told me she’d never had such an intense cardio session and her buns burned for days!).

A Slice Of Life | No Budge Bikini: L*SPACE

SWELL 2
Finding a bikini that actually stays on during outdoor activities is a challenge no matter what… but finding one that is also CUTE is even harder. Fortunately, L*SPACE has created what I like to call the perfect no-budge bikini. The three strap back top is the perfect combo of fashion and function, and its stylish design works perfectly as a bralette with an open back tank or dress. The itsy bottom, for those who dare to bare, is ideal for tanning, and stays on in even the roughest of surf! This suit can really do no wrong, especially because its flattering seamless style looks great on every girl. No bulges or bumps… and in any activity, no budge!
