Best Beaches: Playa del Carmen

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

Everyone has an opinion about the best beaches in the world and Playa del Carmen, or Playa as it’s known,  in Mexico is definitely among the favorite choices for the top spot.  Located on Mexico’s Caribbean coast, Playa is about 40 miles south of another Mexico favorite – Cancun.  The now resort city originated as a small fishing village, but people quickly discovered its charm when a ferry service to Cozumel started.  As passengers loaded up for the ferry to Cozumel, a world-class scuba diving destination, they came to love Playa del Carmen turning it into the vacation destination that it is today.  Still less crowded that Cancun, Playa has sugary white sand beaches for soaking up the sun’s warm rays and the inviting crystal clear turquoise water is the perfect temperature for a quick dip to cool off.  For those days when you might want a break from all the beach relaxation, Playa is a great home base for exploring the nearby Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, Coba or Tulum; or you could head into Playa’s Avenida Quinta for a two mile long main street pedestrian friendly atmosphere filled with shops, restaurants, bars and hotels.  Located just a block or so off the beach, Avenida Quinta has everything a shopper could possibly want and then some.  With activities for everyone, it is easy to see why this is a favorite of so many.

My first Brazilian bikini wax

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

And no I’m not providing pictures either! You’ll just have to catch me at the beach to enjoy it :)

So I finally broke down and did it. Up until I’d been avoiding the Brazilian wax for no apparent reason, and several of my friends had already got theirs and looked great. I decided it was time for mine. I booked the appointment for a Tuesday afternoon. The salon I went to was a small one in a strip mall, and only had a few different rooms, but the place was clean and everyone was really friendly. The girl asks me to strip down and lie on the table face up, then she leaves the room. I’m thinking geez they have it warm in here and the girl comes back. She could tell I was nervous but she was so cool about it. She said everyone is a little nervous when they get their first Brazilian bikini waxing. So she slathers this wax which isn’t nearly as hot as I thought it would be (more like pleasantly warm) onto my pubic hair with a wooden tongue depressor. I’m thinking I hope the end results are worth all this. Now she puts a cloth over the wax and pulls it off (ouch!). I have to say it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I had a red bump or two but lotion took care of that.

Man you should see my vajayjay now! I went all out and got vajazzled, the deluxe package!

What are Brazilian bikinis?

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

You’ve probably heard of a micro bikini, but what exactly is a Brazilian bikini?  The best answer anyone can give is quite vague.  Brazilian bikinis started popping up on the beaches of South America some years ago, and have taken the world by storm.  Many different styles of bikini can call themselves “Brazilian”, but they all share a few things in common – they ride low on the hips and provide more coverage than a standard thong, but less coverage than a standard bikini brief.

Brazil is known for it’s vibrant culture, it’s gorgeous sandy beaches, and it’s gorgeously curvy women.  Its these women who first popularized the Brazilian bikini and made it once again fashionable and sexy for curvy women to wear bikinis.  The trend has caught on, and the Brazilian bikini is now seen on beaches worldwide.

TYPES OF BRAZILIAN BIKINIS

Brazilian Half Pucker

The Brazilian half pucker bikini has a traditional front design with subtle puckering detail on the back. The pucker extends about halfway down the backside of the bikini and highlights your curves better than a standard Brazilian would.

Brazilian Full Pucker

The Brazilian Full Pucker bikini offers a bit more coverage than the Half Pucker (shown above).  In this design, the puckering detail runs all the way down the backside of the bikini.

Micro Brazilian Bikini

The micro Brazilian bikini is indeed the smallest of them all, and is definitely not for the shy. Fabric in front is usually just barely sufficient to cover the naughty parts, and the back is a simple t-shaped thong.

Brazilian Bikini Models

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

Think you have what it takes to be a Brazilian bikini model?  If you already know you look great in a Brazilian bikini, you could take the next step and become a model!  Bikini modeling is a great way to get paid doing something you already love – hanging out at the beach looking sexy in a bikini!  I’m not a bikini model myself (just a bikini enthusiast), but several of my friends have made a lot of money being a bikini model.  When I asked them how they got started, they all had a variation of the same story with the same basic advice.

First is physical conditioning.  Whether you’re going to be a bikini model, a fitness model, or even take part in bikini competitions, its important that you are in good physical condition. To what extent is determined by what type of modeling you’re doing.  Obviously, fitness models who take part in fitness competitions are expected to be more chiseled than the average bikini model.

Second is a portfolio.  If you are ever going to get hired, you need something for potential employers to see beforehand.  If you’ve ever had professional photos taken, you know how expensive it can be for a polished finished product.  To get around this hurdle, you could always seek out a budding photography student to help you.  They need to build portfolios as they start their careers just like you do, so you can help each other out.
