It's all about the legs

Glossy pin lovers Wilkinson Sword asked me to put forward some of my favourite 'leg moments', so I thought I would do this by also showing you my journey through the last few weeks in Italy and Turkey.

To inspire me, they sent me a beautiful little package containing a their HydroSilk Bikini trimmer and shaver (£7.49 at Boots), the Nip + Fab Shimmer Leg Fix, a Topshop voucher and a selfie stick. I have to say I was a little reluctant to use the stick but absolutely loved it at the end of my holiday...they really are brilliant for group photos!

The Nip & Fab leg shimmer was a pleasant surprise too, as it gave a very subtle but lovely glow to my legs and especially once my tan had set in. It was perfect to apply just before going out for dinner.

First stop ...Sicilia!

I bought myself a pair of white leather converse at Topshop (£54.99), thinking they are the perfect shoe to wear everyday on holiday and show off my tanned pins. I added some anklets from Tanzania and India to get me in the holiday mood at the airport.

Walking through the alleyways of Palermo city, with a Mojito in hand, naturally. 

What better way to show off your pins than in a strappy pair of high heels and a dress? I love these Zara shoes, they are so comfy and really elongate my petite frame. During this moment I was sitting on a couch at our hotel and watching the sunset as I waited for the girls to get ready. It was a really beautiful moment of calm...I've learned to appreciate sunsets a little more and take the time to really enjoy them as they go by so fast.

I even took a cheeky 'leg selfie' with the selfie stick while we waited for our taxi.

Two weeks later and I was in Bodrum, Turkey and this time on a fun boat you can see I got hold of a little prop as soon as I found it on board...not showing off at all...hehe.

I have to say that this was my favourite bare leg moment...on a small boat off the Bodrum coast, relaxing after a delicious seafood lunch and just before another swim in the turquoise Aegean sea. It was an absolutely perfect day and my skin had gone so soft from the sun and sea by day 7 that I was loving my legs!

I used the Wilkinson Sword HydroSilk shaver throughout my holidays and found that it provided a really great, close shave that enabled me to keep my legs smooth for longer than two days. I usually need to do this every day so this was great. The razor was so easy to use and a really convenient 2-in-1 to take on holiday. My one tip would be to ensure you moisturise every time you shower, as the sun can really dehydrate the skin and you want to ensure you keep that tan going for longer!

Keep an eye out for more posts coming up featuring Sicily and Bodrum...
