The ultimate guide to a sexy summer.

Each day for the next six weeks, you can expect:

  3. Ideas for sexy summer destinations
  4. Recommendations for cute bikinis and where to find them

1. Beach body move: Single leg squat

  1. Place all your weight on your right foot. Deeply bend knee and shift hips back like you are sitting in a chair. Let arms come forward as you lower down. This will help with balance.
  2. Drive up through entire foot to come back to standing. Make sure feet and knee is facing forward the entire time.
  3. Do 10 reps each side.

2. Flat belly snacks: Walnuts

Walnuts are high in heart-healthy omega-3s as well as fiber and protein. They contain biotin, which promotes hair growth. Walnuts are high in B-vitamins and antioxidants, which reduce free radicals and promote youthful skin.

3. Sexy summer destination: The Hamptons

Enjoy a leisure day lying on the sand reading your favorite magazines and then head out in the evening to fantastic restaurants. You are bound to run into a few celebs. Maybe even Leo or Brad if you are lucky.

4. Bikini pick: Fabiola Molina

Ideal for the sports gal. These suits are perfect for any kind of water activity, while remaining feminine and appealing.
