With summer teetering on the horizon, it’s time to get prepared for feeling confident and happy in the sunshine. This summer, you can improve your summer glow even with a hectic lifestyle by following this useful guide. From ensuring your legs are ready for the sunshine, to changing your lifestyle to eat more healthy greens in the place of junk food and sugary snacks.

Change Your Lifestyle

Switch up how you exercise if you wish to lose some weight and improve the appearance of your legs. You can begin with gentle exercise such as Pilates or walking with your dog, for example. If you’re keen to slim down your legs, then you must change how you’re currently living your life. Consider changing your diet to include many more servings of fresh fruit and vegetables and cutting out junk food that has little to no nutritional content. Set yourself a target and begin swapping chocolate for fruit, and having a healthy breakfast that doesn’t involve sugary cereals or rounds of toast.

Medical Technology

If you have small thread veins on your legs that prevent you from wanting to bare your pins, then consider whether having them removed could be a sensible option for you. An option could be to find Thread Vein Clinic across the UK and have the troublesome veins removed in time for the hottest months of the year. The process of removal is simple and non-invasive, in many cases, the results can be instant or take a few weeks to completely disappear.

Epilate Or Wax

If you’re not careful with how you shave, then repeatedly shaving over stubble can cause a rash. Shaving rash can be sore and itchy and is better off avoided. Choose to wax or epilate your legs and remove hair at home. There’s no need to visit a beauty therapist for this, as you can keep on top of this routine yourself.

Have A Pedicure

If you plan to wear your legs out this summer, then turn your attention to improving how your feet look in sandals and flipflops. Book yourself for an appointment at a spa and have a pedicure. Here you can have your nails painted, your dry skin removed and softened, and your skin exfoliated. Some pedicurists will massage your lower legs to help improve circulation, as well as using hot stones, and mud and algae wraps.

Moisturise

During the winter, your skin tends to get drier in places as you neglect your moisturising routine more than you might care to admit. If you’ve done this then not to worry, you just need to find a nourishing cream that works for you. Dry patches can be stubborn, so try to buy an intensely moisturising lotion and preferably one that uses all natural ingredients.

Remember Sun cream

Sun cream is an essential for your list of items to sort for summer. Although we have been looking forward to the sun, ensuring you’re protected from the damaging rays will mean you can bask in the sun, get your summer glow but protect your skin as well. It’s a win-win situation!

Yesterday was one of the nicest days we’ve had in a long time. I want to blog about it separately but had to share this photo of my girlies blowing bubbles together for this weeks My Sunday Photo. We went to a street party to celebrate the Royal Wedding and my girls were more than happy running around freely on the field. Completely carefree.

I hope you’ve had a brilliant weekend! Did you celebrate the Royal Wedding?

We have been able to get outside this month, with temperatures reaching nearly 30 degrees. We’ve focused on getting the garden ready for our girls and we are nearly at a state where we are comfortable with it.

Having our new Dunster House climbing frame has allowed the girls to bond so much. Mainly P2 and P3 have been out from the moment they wake and then again in the afternoons. I love watching them play outdoors, playing in the mud kitchen and just being together sometimes.

All three girls have had chickenpox this month. It’s been a tough month for them and us actually. However, it’s given them so many opportunities to bond with each other over games, iPads and the outdoors. P1 had a whole week of bonding with P3 as they both caught the chickenpox at the same time.

Naturally my siblings post this month is of my girlies outside in their new climbing frame. I literally took these and wrote this post today because I completely forgot it was the 15th. I mean where the heck is this year going already?!

Our favourite family theme park is most definitely Paultons Park and there’s no secret about it. We love the variety of things available. We recently received a Royal Invitation to the Grand Preview Days of the two new rides in the Peppa Pig World part of Paultons Park. The girls were thrilled. Sadly P1 was still suffering with chickenpox so she had to stay with my mother-in-law for the day.

I drove us the nearly two hour trip to Peppa Pig World. These days it’s quite rare for me to drive our car so this was a big deal. We had plenty of time to spare so stopped off at McDonald’s before reaching Paultons Park. We were handed with our VIP Special Guest passes. We know Paultons Park like the back of our hand so headed straight for the Grand Preview of the new expansion area of Peppa Pig World.

As it is only open to the public from 16th May, the area was still secured off and on entering we was greeted by the lovely team and handed a huge gift bag of goodies for the girls. Obviously all the treats were Peppa Pig themed which delighted them both. P2 is definitely heading to the age where she may no longer like Peppa especially if she’s with her big sister, but on this day you could see the adoration she still had for the friendly pink pig.

There are two new rides in the Peppa Pig World expansion; The Queens Flying Coach Ride & Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club. There is also new food facilities and toilets in this area too. Obviously everything looked brand new because it is, but I just love how all of Peppa Pig World is so colourful and aesthetically pleasing. 

We hopped on the Queens Flying Coach ride first. P3 screamed to start with as the ride tracks look similar to bigger rollercoasters but she soon settled down once she realised that it was ultimately a train ride in the air. There are no different heights or speeds, it’s a really gentle family for all of the family. You can hear a conversation between the Queen and Peppa as you go along. It’s a great opportunity to view the rest of Peppa Pig World too.

We hopped off to grab a quick Peppa Pig themed cupcake from one of the stalls and then we walked round to the second new ride.

Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club is a really gentle river ride. It seats four people. There are cute little scenes as you ride along the water. This one does spin slightly as the water washes you along but it’s nothing crazy. It’s a really lovely ride actually and we all were laughing throughout.

By the way, how cute is the wall behind us in this photo? There are plenty of opportunities to photos around the new expansion area. Like I said earlier, everything is just so bright and colourful.

I tried to spy out any other bloggers I may know and failing miserably it seemed that all the bloggers I knew had gone to the event the day before. We decided to head round to Paultons Park to do the bigger rides for P2 our crazy rollercoaster loving child. People sometimes forget that Paultons Park has other areas that are perfectly suitable for all the family too. There’s even a bouncy castle, dinosaur safari and two little toddler rides specifically for the youngest of riders to go alone.

Our day seemed much more relaxed yet a bit erratic than previous adventures to Paultons Park. The girls spent more time than usual in the playgrounds rather than the rides. It was quite refreshing to explore in a different way actually. Of course, we didn’t miss out on the big scary rides for P2.

We decided to head back into the new Peppa Pig expansion area for another go on the two new rides and to see if we recognised anybody else. The staff had provided some refreshments for the special guests so we hydrated ourselves and P3 ate many, many cupcakes. They were pretty delicious actually. Then whilst we was on the Queen’s Flying Coach ride I spotted the Saccone-Joly’s. I sort of went into a fan girl panic mode.

Hubby thought I was a complete idiot because he didn’t realise until afterwards that the Saccone-Joly’s are actually rather big YouTubers with nearly 2 million subscribers. He urged me to say hello and somehow I managed to stumbled out some words, meet the Saccone-Joly’s and grab a photo with them. It all sort of went by in a blur and there’s no doubt that they probably thought I was a nutter.

After getting over my fan girl moment, we headed into Peppa Pig World. It was a Saturday so the queues for rides were pretty long but nothing unbearable. I’d highly recommend not going at the weekend if you are able too as it’s much less busy during weekdays. P3 was absolutely desperate to ride Grandpa’s Train so that and George’s Dinosaur ride was on the top of our list to visit. The girls also really wanted to go in the playground which as I said earlier, is something they don’t usually do as we try to fit as many rides in as possible.

P3 managed to fall asleep whilst waiting for Hubby and P2 on a ride she didn’t fancy. We used the opportunity to do some of the bigger rides again over in the Dinosaur area. We then woke P3 up and she became much less grumpy and full of life whereas P2 had started to flag from tiredness.

We always leave the soft play area until very last, it’s much less busy nearer to the park closing time. P3 had a brilliant time whilst P2 sat half asleep on our laps. She had decided to start her day at 4:40am that morning due to excitement so I had expected her to be pretty exhausted.

I would highly recommend making a visit to see the new Peppa Pig rides and spend a day at Paultons Park. There is so much to do for all ages and even animals! Check out my video of our day below and please do leave me a comment below.
