You don’t have to live on a tropical island- for your home to feel like one!

ceramicThere’s just something about endless days at the beach, warm summer nights, and finding any excuse to be in a swimsuit that has me hooked. I realize that unfortunately not everyone has access to a body of water, sand and sweet beach days, but that doesn’t mean that your home has to be deprived of all that our beautiful tropical island has to offer. I thought it would be fun to help all of my Trudialexis.com readers do a little purchasing—summer beach style to feel that feeling I’m speaking of.

 These gorgeous hand made Jamaican pieces are infused with our roots and culture, each creation tells a very special story ! #getitatkerry #kerrymwh #tropical  #tropicalliving #home #rootsandculture

We living in ah Shady Island

I LOVE SUNGLASSES! WITH A PASSION !! Its my go too fashion statment accessory and the bigger the better !! Now don’t get it twisted i believe in owning a couple pairs of nice sunnies, and i guess when FullSizeRender-13i say ‘nice’ i really mean expensive . Recently i have been finding some super amazing and stylish glasses and best of all Affordable ! So what if they don’t have some big brand name written on the sides ? Rock the s*%t out of your cheap sunnies and own your look.
The quality of sunglasses is often tied to the brand, but it’s not always that way. In fact, some of the high end glasses only have moderate quality while some of the midrange glasses ($10-$100) have all stellar reviews and can last through just about anything.

Chic of the week – Boho and beyond

chan2Anyone who knows me well, knows I’m a total wanna be Bohemian princess at heart!!! This style  is by far my all-time favorite look.

The bohemian look is free-spirited , and connects flowy silhouettes with 70’s-inspired fashion. This style isn’t always easy to pull off–a boho girl must have confidence and an easy-going attitude all at once. But this week’s Chic captures the very essence of bohemian fashion with ease and grace. Chan Davis, you’ve earned some serious style points in my book…congratulations, you’re our Chic of the Week!

Get the look ! #getitatkerry #kerrymwh #boho #bohochic #bohogirl #freespirit #summer #dreamy #sexy #fun #runfree #wildheart

How to get a bikini body – Put a bikini on your body

Plus-Size-Swimsuits-For-Curvy-Women-23Being confident in a bikini is easier said than done – TRUST ME!!! Everyone should be proud of their body, but as the weather heats up, women start covering up. Unfortunately, we tend to look for flaws instead of recognizing assets, and forget to appreciate the gorgeous goods we’ve been blessed with. The difficulty of finding a comfortable, flattering and stylish swimsuit adds to the problem – and suddenly finding the perfect pair of bikinis seems impossible. However, your body is not to blame. Having two arms, two legs, a belly, boobs and a bum is something to be grateful for.

Women come in a range of different body shapes, but swimwear doesn’t always cater to them. I’m a firm believer in costume Swimwear, as women we should celebrate every shape and size, the costume made rout provides you with a way to design your own gorgeous piece of custom swimwear. Nobody knows your body better than you do, so why not create something that makes you look and feel better than ever? Gone are the days of finding the perfect print in the wrong size, or a flattering swimsuit in a terrible colour. When you design a custom bikini , you can have the best of everything.

FEMALE BODY SHAPES 3_thumb900

Determining your body shape is the easiest way to find flattering swimwear. Different body shapes suit different bikini styles, so knowing yours will help you narrow down the search. For example, bandeau tops are great for those with smaller boobs and halter neck styles offer support for those with bigger busts. Prints and frills can draw attention towards your assets and away from body parts you don’t like.

Tips and tricks like these are great, but the most important part of feeling confident in your bikini body is to remind yourself of the positives – like how amazing you look and feel! We want you to wear your assets with pride, no matter their shape and size. After all, not everyone is lucky enough to keep theirs.

Next time you question the size of your chest or why one boob is bigger than the other – remind yourself that there are women living without their breasts. Women whose struggle with body-image and their bikini body is far greater.

Confidence plays a big role in living your happiest life and today we’re sharing 10 surefire ways to elevate that sense of self worth. Here they are…

  1. Lead your life with your heart.
    Stand tall and you’ll immediately feel a boost of confidence. You may not be able to see it when you look in the mirror, but your heart is working hard for you day in a day out. It deserves to lead.
  2. Smile.
    It’s contagious. Be happy about the blessings in your life! You’ll make someone’s day. Plus, smiling is sexy.
  3. Act like you’re on a mission.
    You’ll feel fierce and confident right away.
  4. Step outside of your comfort zone, try something new and overcome a fear. Perhaps it’s signing up for a race, talking to someone new, or going to the front of yoga class! The more you do this, the more you’ll feel like you can take on the world!
  5. Be bold.
    Wear red lipstick, bold colors and never be afraid to go after what you want!
  6. Break a sweat.
    Working out will make you feel confident and amazing! It increases your endorphins to help you feel happy, reduces stress and tones your muscles.
  7. Find the beauty in others.
    Compliment people, even if it’s someone you don’t know. And send love notes to your family and friends! Focusing on what you love in others is one of the best ways to feel great about yourself.
  8. Nix the negative talk.
    Whether it’s in your head or out loud, all negative talk needs to go. Each time you catch yourself saying something unkind about yourself or anyone else, just correct it. We promise this will have a huge impact on how you feel each day. If a girlfriend says something negative about herself, make her correct it too… Then compliment her!
  9. Dress to the nines.
    Take a little extra time and take care of yourself by dressing your best wherever you go—even if it’s the gym. When you feel good, you’ll go the extra mile—whether it’s at work, at home, at the gym or on a date!
  10. Reward yourself.
    You deserve it. Do things that make you smile and feel pampered often. Take a bubble bath, treat yourself to new clothes, manicures or a 20 minute break with your favorite magazine. It’s the little things that make a difference!
