Ah, summer… The scent of sun protection cream, the salt in the hair that makes it so fuzzy and pretty to style, the naps at 4pm in the afternoon, the endless meaningful talks with your closest friends… Summer… If only it could be summer all year long. Actually for some lucky folks (I am talking about you L.A people!!!) it does seem to be just like that all year long. What a luxury. It’s perhaps one of the reasons why we are planning to move to California, just saying.
Sun simply sets me in a great mood. It makes me want to be super active and spend the days out instead of the office. Now we do discuss summer, but beach gave me this season newer challenges. It’s been a while since I actually spent a few days at the beach. It was a special time this year as I had the chance to be hosted by the delightful team of Forte Village in Sardinia with my best friend Fiona, who also works part time with us, the Kayteam.
I’m used to cover myself up with tons of clothing. But this time it was the perfect occasion to slim down, work out and be as healthy as positive while hanging out on this absolutely gorgeous Italian beach (where by the way, each girl seemed to be 20 times prettier than the one you’ve seen before). Before heading to Forte Village, not only did I do a juice cleanse, I also avoided all carbs (not so hard with the gluten intolerance) and sugar. In terms of work-out, I enjoyed doing some pilates and regular exercises : squats and planks are fantastic.
My goal was to be “naturally” fit. Not too much, but still sleek and slim. Owning the bikini is a whole art and there’s definitely an incredible lifestyle that goes behind it, which I am actually also fascinated by. I felt absolutely in love with my new Victoria’s Secret one piece swimming suit. It really reminded me those old school bikinis that pin-ups used to wear. Paired with some Céline retro sunnies, it seemed like a perfect match to add a fun twist to this look.
Fiona and I had the times of our lives at Forte Village. It is such a peaceful and incredibly relaxing destination. The beach : a pure oasis of peace and tranquility being disturbed if only by a guy who yells “Cocco bello, cocco fresco!” every 15 minutes. Which, I mean, is totally okay as i absolutely love fresh coconut! Also, can’t even describe how amazing it was to be able to be there with my book Fiona. As we work together most of the time, it was so awesome to spend some leisure time together, have endless conversations about life, society, values, ambitions, dreams. Anything. But we would also be speechless and completely silent in front of the beauty of Sardinia and right before passing out on the beach every single day. Forte Village is definitely a hidden paradise in the middle of Italy.

amazing photos! you look beautiful XOXO
I went to Sardinia many many years ago (I guess it's about 16 years now) and I even remember that I loved it back then. Such a beautiful island with so many beautiful beaches, restaurants and other places to relax.
I have my summer vacation right in front of me (only 6 weeks, woohoo!) and also plan on spending two very fit and healthy weeks. I mean, what gives you more motivation than an endless beach to do some running in the morning and an endless sea to swim into sunrise? Yes, I really can't wait :)http://www.louiswhoo.blogspot.de
Always loved the beach, I hope you had fun!

You are totally right, we stayed several times in Sardinia and we love it!
It's so beautiful and we had the possibility to visit it from north to south and it's really different, but all the areas are like paradise in heart!
Amazing post, makes me want to head out to the beach straight away! (which ps, are gorgeous here in Malta if you ever want another holiday to soak up the sun while experiencing a rich culture). I wanted to ask about the necklace pieces you are wearing here; I always wanted to wear something dainty to add a different touch to my swimsuits. Which pieces would you suggest or what type? Lots of love :) xx

You look amazing, Kristina! I must say I'm not a fan of swimsuits (I probably haven't worn one since I was 6) I think bikinis are more flattering but the one you are wearing suits you perfectly. Congrats on getting the body you want, I'm still working on mine ;)
Sardinia is the most beautiful island I have ever been! I love your monokini :)http://inspoint.blogspot.sk/

Super chique! You have definitely enjoyed your holiday with your boo :D! You also inspired me to do a juicy cleanse (which I'm doing right now!!). It feels like my body is saying thank you all the time :). Flat belly, feeling energized all the time,... I was just wondering if you would like to make an article about your everyday lifestyle? Maybe it inspires me as well as I see you are really caring about your health :). xxx
