4 Ways to Feel Sexier

Last week I posted 5 Tips to Keep Your Style Fresh and this week, I’m bringing you four simple steps to feel sexier.

Sex appeal is 50% what you’ve got

and 50% what people think you’ve got. ~ Sophia Loren

Feeling sexy is definitely an inside job. It starts with being in touch with the deepest parts of yourself and letting the best of you shine through. Sexiness requires confidence and courage and here’s my quick list of tips that help me feel my Bringing-Sexy-Back best!

Feel Sexier Tip One ~ Choose your favorite body part and adorn it!

Everyone has a part of their body that they’re in love with, even if it’s their left index finger. Whatever it is for you: your eyes, your arms, or your ankles, there’s a world of adornment available to enhance and entice. If you really want to feel sexier, pick your favorite part and go to town! Be bold, be adventurous, be playful–it’s all sexy stuff.

What’s my favorite body part? My legs!

Feel Sexier Tip Two ~ Get a professional mani-pedi.

Some people think of salon manicures and pedicures as a luxury and I suppose they’re right. But for me, they are a necessity. From choosing colors, to soaking my tired tootsies and getting mini massages while in the chair I love every minute of a nail salon visit. Every time I step out of a salon with new fingers and toes, I feel like a brand new woman awash with possibilities. What’s sexier than that? Not much!

Feel Sexier Tip Three ~ Take a belly dancing class.

Belly dancing is the ultimate sexy dance. The tango gives it a little competition but you need a partner for that. No partner needed for belly dancing. With the focus on a woman’s hips and belly, this style of dance is a great way to get in touch with your body and your sexuality. There’s something about wrapping your hips in beautiful fabric and jingly chains that makes for an amazingly sexy experience.

Feel Sexier Tip Four ~ Buy beautiful lingerie.

I mentioned above that sexiness is an inside job and part of that inside is what you wear beneath your clothes. Good lingerie can put a spring in your step and increase your confidence even if no one knows you’re wearing it. In fact, having a sexy little secret can be extremely empowering. And if you should find yourself wanting to shed your outerwear for another, showing off your rocking-sexy self in your rocking-sexy lingerie will be a great bonus!
Confidence, courage and a little adornment can go a long way toward helping you feel sexier and be at your sexy best!

    Great tips! Taking belly dancing classes sounds like a great idea 😀

    I absolutely adore your post. The only thing that freaks me out is the idea of belly dancing but that is all on me and in my head. I splurge once or twice a year for a pedicure but if I am being honest, I normally have my husband give me mini-pedicures at home. I definitely need to work on my sex appeal for myself. As fall approaches it is time for a new me.

      Having your husband do your pedicures is not a bad idea at all! Yay for the new you!!

    I love getting a mani/pedi, or maybe it's just that I love being pampered! I've seen a belly dancing class at college, but that's not for me. Too prudish I suppose.

  • Reply Sandy Olsen 5 September 2014 at 11:27 PM
