Tanning Accessories!

Tanning accessories?  Besides your tan through swimsuit and tanning lotion, what else is there?  Well, we all tend to drag a ton of stuff to the beach or pool "just in case", right?  We have our electronics, coverups, sunglasses, books (more than one since we may decide we don't like the ONE we brought).  So, what do you take with you?

One thing that I can't do without when I'm lying outside in the sun is my pillow.  Comfort is king when it comes to getting a great tan.  I can lie still longer, which gives me better tanning coverage.  If I squirm, I can get some weird results!

Another essential is my phone.  And, no, it's not so I can chat with my BF.  I use it for the timer!  I usually stay out about an hour, so I set my timer so that I get equal time for all my parts.  It works great, unless my dog decides to steal it while my back is turned.  He actually attempted that once.  I was lying on my side with my back to my phone and suddenly I heard crunchy, slurping sounds behind me.  I turned to find the little stinker trying to steal my phone. 

I like to use those cheap blankets (the ones that look like Indian blankets) that you get from department stores to lie on when tanning.  They wash up easily and since they are cheap, you don't have to worry about harming them.  You also don't have to worry about making them ugly since they were born that way!

A good pair of sunglasses is also essential for me.  If I don't wear shades, my arms are uncomfortable since I have to constantly shade my eyes.  Comfort is important, so don't forget your shades!

Reading material is one of my favorite accessories.  I like a good book or magazine.  The last book I completed while tanning was Frankenstein.  I normally don't have much time to read, but getting a tan provides a great venue.  Read something that you normally wouldn't, like a classic.  It's kind of embarrassing not knowing the basic story in famous literary works.

So, grab your favorite tan through one piece swimwear or tan through two piece and head for your favorite tanning spot.  Get a great tan and don't forget to pack your favorite accessories!

Tanning Music...

Soooo, you're lying on the beach in the sun in your lovely new tan through bikini.  What do you like to do to pass the time?  Lots of folks like to turn on their favorite tunes.  Everyone's tastes are different.  Some like old rock 'n roll and others like soft pop or jazz.  Some people like everything from one end of the spectrum to the other, including the latest hits.  I am one of this last odd ball group.

One of my favorites is classic rock and a little on the hard side.  ACDC, Metallica, Alice in Chains, Guns 'n Roses, etc. are new discoveries for me.  The old standbys are great, too.  Soaking up the sun and tanning to the Eagles is great, too, especially if the songs feature Joe Walsh.

We don't want to leave out the disco era tunes.  The seventies gave us some great music that is great for the beach.  It makes you want to move.  Maybe it would be better for the volleyball game than for lying still trying to work on your seamless tan, but still great!  

If sleeping is what you like to do while catching the rays in your tan through swimwear, then classical music would be my recommendation.  Sometimes a nice nap in the sun is what makes me happy and some soothing music may send me straight to sleepy land.

What are your music preferences?

The Best Tan Through Swimwear in the World!!!

Looking for a tan through swimsuit?  Do you want the best? Your search is over!  Lifestyles Direct Tan Through Swimwear features the best quality and fabric available today!

Our tan through fabric stretches much differently than our competition's.  Ours features a four-way stretch that allows for a much better fit and superior comfort.  You spend much less time tugging and pulling to readjust your bathing suit so you spend way more time enjoying your summertime activities.

The micro-mesh fabric dries more quickly than other brands since it stretches more and lets more air behind the swimsuit and next to your skin.  It also allows more sunlight to reach your skin, accelerating the drying process.  

One thing that some people may not consider when deciding the quality of a bikini or one piece swimsuit is the grade of materials that are used to construct it.  The elastic, the thread, and the fabric all need to be superior to make a top notch garment.  You will find that level of quality here at Lifestyles Direct.

Visit our store and try one for yourself!  You will never want to go back to any other tan through swimwear brand, let alone your conventional swimwear that takes forever to dry and is heavy and bulky.  Shop from our tan through women's swimsuits including one piece bathing suits, bikini sets, and mix-and-match separates.  You men can choose from racers and jammer-style bike shorts.  You can find some great deals from our clearance page as well!

Have a great day and get some sun for a healthy lifestyle!

The Best Alfredo Sauce Ever...

Alfredo, anyone?  It has to be one of my favorite sauces on the planet, so I thought I would share an awesome recipe with you this morning.  My friend shared this with me some years back and it has become one of my family's favorite dishes.  It helps create a meal that is soooo easy, but looks expensive and difficult to make.  I love recipes like that!  It's a good one to impress your guests!  It's so good that you may even be able to buy friends with it...

Alfredo Sauce a la Marsha:

Ingredients:

  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1 stick butter (not margarine)
  • 1 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Salt
  • Coarse ground pepper

Melt butter in medium sauce pan over medium heat.  Add cream, stirring continuously (so it doesn't scorch) until hot.  Add cheese, stirring until completely melted and sauce is smooth.  Remove from heat and salt and pepper to taste.  Serve over favorite pasta (ours is penne).

I like to make several toppings to complete the meal, but the sauce is so good that you can eat it alone on the pasta.  We like to add some fried ham, grilled chicken, sauteed asparagus, and/or sauteed mushrooms to ours depending on what's in our refrigerator.  Don't forget the garlic bread!

I hope you enjoy this scrumptious dish!  If you overindulge, you can always size up your tan through swimwear at www.lifestylesdirect.com!   ;D

 

 

 

Yay! Flip-Flop Season!

Anyone else out there a flip-flop freak like me?  One thing that makes me long for summer is the wearing of the flip-flop.  (It even comes ahead of my tan through swimwear.  Shhh, don't tell.)The simplicity and comfort can't be beat by any other shoe style.  Once my feet gets accustomed to them each summer, I can do almost anything in them.  

I can wear the cheap ones that you see in the discount bins at the department stores or the $2.00 jobs at Walmart.  The best thing about them is that they are cheaply replaced when they float away at the river or lake.  A bad thing is that they wear out more quickly than higher quality ones.

I love the molded ones the best.  They don't have straps that will pull through the sole so they last longer and can take more from life than the cheaper models.  They also feel better since they are usually made of a more pliable material.

If you are like me and love those flip-flops,  grab a pair along with your tan through bikini and sarong and get into some summertime activity.  If not a bikini, then maybe a lovely one piece swimsuit from Lifestyles Direct Tan Through Swimwear.  There are several styles from which to choose.  Don't worry, men, I didn't forget about you.  You wear flip flops and swimwear too, right?  We also offer great tan through racers and bike shorts for you all as well.

Don't Forget Your Shades!

Don't Forget Your Shades!

This summer we will all head for an outing on the beach, at a river or lake, or to the community pool.  We remember our swimsuit, of course, the sunscreen, our favorite beach towel, and our cooler.  One thing we need to remember is our sunglasses.  There are a few reasons that they are important.

Your shades can prevent eye strain and headaches while in bright sunlight.  If you are more relaxed, you are less likely to develop a headache due to eye strain.  Don those shades and have a much better time in the sun!

According to medical professionals blocking UV rays to your eyes can prevent medical conditions of the eye like cataracts, clouding of your eyeballs' lenses, and skin cancer of the eyelids.  It isn't safe to apply sunscreen too close to your eyes, so grab those sunglasses!

You can actually see better if you are wearing a good quality polarized pair of sunglasses.  They cut the glare and let you open your eyes wider to see better.  Reflection on water and shiny objects is cut to a minimum, making seeing much easier.

There is a cosmetic reason that all of us ladies will appreciate--sunglasses can prevent squinting which in turn will prevent wrinkling around our eyes.  Models use this strategy all the time.  They cannot afford wrinkles; it's their livelihood to remain as flawless as possible.

On your next trip to your favorite getaway in the sun, don't forget your polarized shades!  Wearing your tan through swimwear is always important, but protecting your eyes is, too!

If you haven't chosen your swimwear for this season yet, let us help you at www.lifestylesdirect.com.  We can fix you up with an awesome and stylish tan through bikini, one piece swimsuit, or men's racer or bike shorts.  Don't forget your tan through coverup!

 

Visit Miami!

When any of us hear Miami mentioned, we typically think of beautiful beaches, parties, and bikini clad girls, right?  If you have ever visited the city, you know there is much more to be seen and experienced there.

One of my favorite experiences in Miami is dining on Cuban cuisine.  The rice is amazing and the plantains are spectacular!  The pork is nothing to sneeze at either.  I am not a fan of coffee, but I hear that the Cuban coffee will knock your socks clean off!

There are trade shows that are held there each year that some lucky ones get to experience.  One held every year, to which I've personally been several times, is a large swimwear show at the Miami Beach Convention Center and attracts many exhibitors and retailers hoping to get a great deal and a sneak peek on the next year's swimwear lines.  It's always interesting to see what everyone has to offer.

Another site that I personally love to visit is the Holocaust Memorial of Miami Beach. It is a somber experience, but something that no one should miss.  It is a poignant reminder of our world's past and a warning for future generations that should not be ignored.

Of course, if you visit Miami, you should not ignore the beaches and beautiful sunshine!  So, get your collection of tan through swimwear and head on down there for a week or two of sun and sand.  You will thoroughly enjoy yourself!
