Get Swim Suit Ready or NOT!

by Alexandra Salvatore

After being stuffed in a winter coat and boots all winter, putting on a swimsuit takes work.  I’ve put together some of my favorite products to help you feel good when summer comes around.  Ready or not, here it comes!


Sublime Bronze is great to give a quick spray before bed.  I recommend you spray outside or in your shower because it can get messy.  If you have somewhere to go in the next few days and you want a hint of color on your legs, arms or face, this is perfect. It’s very natural looking.  Be sure to exfoliate before you spray and do NOT wear any creams when applying.


Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Leg Makeup is strictly for when you’re wearing a dress and haven’t had your legs exposed to the sun in a while!  Or if you just want them to look flawless.  Any time I go to an affair in a dress I use this.


But honestly the most important thing when going in the sun is to protect yourself from the sun!  I wear a tinted moisturizer with sunblock over my face cream every day.  It prevents dark spots and wrinkles as well as dangerous exposure to the sun.  I get this Elta facial sunscreen from my dermatologist.  I can NOT live with out it anymore.


I read something recently on mineral sunscreens.  It is supposed to be the new way to sunblock because it won’t clog pores.  La Roche has one. ⇒⇒

This Beach Babe Sea Salt Spray is perfect for the tousled beach hair look(Not that I can achieve it.  But if I had the right hair this would be the product to use.  Lol)

Once you are ready to put on a swimsuit you have to try these…

This Robin Piccone One Piece Swimsuit has the most beautiful neckline and fits like a glove!  I have it in black, but only see it in basil now.

I tried on this Robin Piccone Luca Scoopneck swimsuit.  It felt like a soft stocking on.  It was so flattering, classy and classic. It is perfect if you need more coverage up top.

I own this BECCA by Rebecca Virtue Color Play Plunge One-Piece in burgundy. It’s so flattering and comfortable. It covers without being totally covered.  I love all of her suits.  Here are a few more that I love that are similar…

And you can’t have summer without the perfect pair of flip flops.  I bought these Ipanema Women’s Glam Flip-Flops and can’t wait to wear them!


Coats and boots are packed away.  Summer is calling my name.  I can hear it.  You?

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
