Autumn is here and it is my favourite season as you should all know by now (because I don’t shut up about my love for Autumn, hehehe). I love the gradual transition from summer to winter, and I enjoy the transition weather a lot.

There are so many things about this season that I love but if I have to narrow my top 5 things I love about Autumn, here is how I would list them –

Chilled Evenings

I love how chilled out everywhere is during Autumn. After the hustle and bustle of summer with barbecues, picnics, holidays and people just all over the place, it is a breath of fresh air to just sit back and enjoy relaxing/chilled out evenings with my Sky Tv. The chilled evenings also make room for some me time with my personal grooming assistants – I like to have many bubble baths with my Yankee Candles burning in the background. I like to enjoy a massage with my massaging gadget, I like to relax and enjoy a manicure and pedicure with my mani/pedi gift set, and I like to shave my legs with my new epilator.

I have my evenings planned out this season and I plan to make the most of them.

 

Colour Change in Leaves

The colour change in leaves is so beautiful, I love it so much. The vibrant ambers, reds and yellows of Autumn is the best sight ever!

 

Chilly Weather

After the heat wave we experienced this summer, the chilly weather is needed. I like the fact that it is not too warm or too cold in Autumn, it is just perfect. The chilly weather is one of the best things in Autumn.

Autumn Fashion

I love Autumn Fashion as you all know already. The transition to layering style is so cool. I like the fact that I can throw on and off layers when needed.

 

The Darkness

It is getting dark already and I am not usually a fan of the darkness but as soon as I became a mother, I began to cherished the shorter days and longer nights because it is a lot easier to get the kids in bed at night, and get them to wake in the morning at a good time. Unlike in summer when it is still very bright at bedtime (7pm), my kids sometimes find it very difficult to understand that it is actually bed time, and then the sun comes out so early, they think it is their wake up time or what they call “morning time”. Good not to have to deal with that during Autumn/Winter.

How to Get Summer-Ready Legs

It’s summer! And you know what that means? Time to bring out those lovely dresses, skirts and shorts…and of course, show off those legs!
Since your legs will likely be exposed during the summer, it’s important to get them looking fabulous. To get fabulous looking legs, you need to make prep them. Here are some steps you need to take to have your summer-ready legs.
1.    Get Rid of the Hair
If you want to flaunt good-looking legs during the summer, removing the unwanted hair off your legs is the first step. Waxing is a painful but common way of getting rid of the hair on legs. It can be done at a salon or from the comfort of your home using a wax strip. Another option is to use an epilator. Epilators are pretty handy. The process is not as messy and it’s so effective that it picks out the tiniest hair on your legs.

Another popular way of getting rid of the hair is by applying a hair removal cream. I currently use Veet Hair Removal Cream, and it works like magic, leaving me with smooth, hair free legs within minutes.
2.    Exfoliate
Now that your legs are hair free, the next step is to exfoliate. Exfoliation doesn’t only help remove traces of dried skin, it also helps to prevent ingrown hairs and bumpy skin. This will ensure that your skin feels nice and smooth.

To exfoliate, you can use exfoliating gloves. Slip your hand through the exfoliating glove and scrub your legs, preferably in circular motion. Take care not to apply too much pressure or scrub too long so you don’t hurt yourself. An alternative to exfoliating gloves is a scrub, which you can buy from the store or make yourself if you are feeling creative. Natural scrubs like the sea salt or Epsom salts make excellent scrubs. Apply the scrub on your legs and rub in circular motions. Don’t apply too much pressure while scrubbing or you could end up hurting yourself. And remember not to scrub for too long.

3. Use a Hard Skin Remover

If you have a hard skin remover, like an Emjoi Micro Pedi, this is the time to use it the most. These devices get rid of rough, dead skin, leaving your feet summer-ready.
4.    Moisturize
The next step is to moisturize your legs. Moisturizing helps to keep your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. The best time to apply a moisturizer is immediately after stepping out of the shower while your skin is still damp. This way, while applying moisturizer it will trap the water and keep your skin hydrated.
5.    Apply sunscreen
This is the final and most important step in getting your legs summer-ready. Your legs will be exposed to the rays of the sun. So, it is important to protect them from the harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen on your legs after moisturizing.
