When the last few months have been spent hiding your pins underneath trousers and tights and your Winter getaway is soon approaching, it's time to fight any unwanted fur and get yourself feeling beach confident. For most women that signifies the dreaded chore of shaving or maybe even an hour of pain for a meticulously smooth bikini line - but for Ministry of Waxing expert and head trainer Chloe Scriminger, prepping your body for the beach should be about as pain-free as your blow dry and mani-pedi. Having specialised in advanced hair removal techniques for the last 7 years - if there's anyone to give the lowdown and do's and don'ts of waxing - It's Chloe!

This Monday our Motivation for the week ahead is icon of the moment Cindy Crawford.
This multi-tasking lady is not only a supermodel, but also charity ambassador, mother and now author. The recent launch of her debut book 'Becoming' by Cindy Crawford has meant that although she has been jet-setting from country to country over the last few weeks, Cindy has continued to look immaculate at every moment.
Whilst finally getting some down-time in Miami from her hectic schedule she got chance to spend some quality time with her husband and they decided to visit our favourite place - the beach!
Of course, she was also seen flaunting her fabulous figure in some Melissa Odabash swimwear and beachwear and not for the first time may we add!
Is it biased for us to say we love her taste?

As we enter our 2nd week of September, the last of us are returning to our desks from our holidays, escorting our little ones on their first day of school, and re-adjusting to our daily routines while daydreaming about the coconut cocktails we had in St. Barts just last week. We find remnants of sand in our beach totes and ask ourselves, how long will my tan last? Would I be able to re-create that fresh-caught ceviche we had on our boat that day? And how on earth am I going to get my hair back to normal after all that sun & salt-water? We've got the ticket for your hair qualms, and with a name like 'Hair After the Sun', what else could you need? Besides, Melissa is all for the sexy and easy beach-hair look, but all in moderation. Our hair needs sunblock, and soothing cream after a burn just like our skin does, ladies! A little T.L.C. for your locks never hurt anyone.

1. Melissa has released a debut handbag collection for SS15, which will you be rocking on the beach this year?
The Zig zag pouch - it’s the perfect accessory for that beachy vibe but I’ll be taking it to music festivals and bbq’s too!
2. What Sun-seeking destinations can you look forward to?
I’m off to a little island off of Singapore to film a t.v. show soon and I cannot wait to live on the beach!
3. In case you lose your luggage at the airport, what emergency items do you make sure are packed in your travel holdall?
I’ve learned the hard way to always pack the essentials in your hand luggage, so – a black bikini (this color looks great on your first day when you’re not tanned yet), this Summer I’m wearing the Martinique Bandeau and pairing it with the Jessica cover up in Navy. Big shades from Anine Bing, Lancome Imanance Tinted Moisturizer with SPF so my skin is still protected; and a good book - right now it’s The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.
4. Post-flight beauty – how do you refresh your skin after a long flight?
The failsafe trick - splash some cold water to awaken the skin and then use a gentle exfoliator (I love Kate Somerville’s) to scrub away all the "yuck" from travelling. If I have time, I’ll throw on Eve Lom’s Moisture Mask while I unpack – a good way to multi task! And then apply a thick cream to sleep in, like Sisley’s.
5. What’s on your wish list from the Melissa Odabash SS15 Collection?
The Melissa dress in yellow knit looks very sexy – I have known Meli for 10 years and she knows how to make a woman feel sexy! I also love the new sporty vibe of her designs like the Bali bikini.
6. Hotspots for your upcoming trip to Singapore?
I have no idea yet, all to be discovered! But I did visit Bali last year and can highly recommend morning coffee and book browsing at Drifter, learning to surf on Seminyak beach, Potato Head for dinner at sunset and Favela for late night cocktails and dancing!

As winter is slowly coming to an end, we cannot help but to anticipate Spring more than usual due to New York’s indecisive weather. Like many, we are in need of some warm weather and an escape from the procrastinating sun. Since Mother Nature has New York playing quite the guessing game, we figured it is time to migrate to the south to Miami Beach for a taste of the good life!
