Feel Sexier Tip 1 – Adorn your favorite body part

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.

Some of my favorite options for adornment in the jewel family include Bauble Bar and Monica Vinader.

Feel Sexier Tip 2 – 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!

Pampering yourself with a professional mani-pedi is an excellent way to feel better in your own skin.

Feel Sexier Tip 3 – 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. FYI Groupon has some amazing deals on belly dancing and other dance classes too!

Feel Sexier Tip 4 – Indulge in Beautiful Lingerie

I mentioned above that sexiness is an inside job and part of that inside is what you wear beneath your clothes. Great 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 an appreciative audience, showing off your rocking-sexy self in your rocking-sexy lingerie will be a great bonus!

Feel Sexier Tip 5 – Read A Little Erotica

My fifth and final tip is perhaps the best! Reading erotica. A guilty pleasure for some and an overt one for others, erotica is a surefire way to rev your sexy engine. And if full-on erotica is not quite your speed, romance novels are a good choice too.

No matter your taste, there’s something in the literary world to suit you. Visit your local library to see what’s available and see if your library offers a reader app. Also check out the OverDrive app. That way, you can download and read until your heart’s content without leaving the comfort of your home.

Confidence, courage, and a little adornment can go a long way toward helping you feel sexier instantly. Stay saucy, my sweet!

  14. 7 September 2014 / 3:57 AM

    I love mani pedis! I will admit I don't get them as often as I should, but I sure do love some fresh polish!

  15. 7 September 2014 / 12:24 AM

    Getting a man-pedi from a shop definitely hands down makes you feel like you're on top of the world!! I love getting pampered here and there.

  16. 6 September 2014 / 8:48 PM

    When I was a kid my mom did belly dancing classes. It would be awesome exercise and give you great sex appeal. Thanks for sharing.

  17. 6 September 2014 / 7:05 PM

    These are some awesome tips. I took belly dancing once and I loved it!

  18. 6 September 2014 / 6:41 PM

    UGH…I haven't felt sexy in so many years. I really need to do stuff like this. Shame on me

  19. 6 September 2014 / 5:19 PM

    I honestly couldn't care less about manicures or pedicures. That said, these are great tips all around!

  20. 6 September 2014 / 3:00 AM

    A great mani and pedi makes a huge difference with how I feel about myself.

  21. 6 September 2014 / 2:02 AM

    Oh, I need to work on #2-4! I just do! I'm dying for a mani-pedi, and love bellydance (a sexy work out) and I definitely need some lingerie!

  22. 6 September 2014 / 1:44 AM

    I feel the exact same way about getting a mani-pedi. It's great to pamper yourself and you look good after.

  23. 6 September 2014 / 12:13 AM

    It's true, getting a manicure and pedicure can really make a woman feel sexy. I think being well groomed overall makes us feel sexy.

  24. 6 September 2014 / 12:00 AM

    Woah. I'm definitely going to sending this post to my girlfriend. The belly dancing class sounds amazing!

    • 6 September 2014 / 12:04 AM

      Good luck! Maybe she'll do a little dance for you!

  25. 5 September 2014 / 11:27 PM

    I like the anklet. After having kids, "looking good" is the first part that took less priority.

  26. 5 September 2014 / 10:55 PM

    Sex appeal.. Something I need to really work on. Seems like after taking care of 5 kiddos and everything else I never get time to spend on me. Will have to start making time.

  27. 5 September 2014 / 10:43 PM

    These are all great tips. Belly dancing classes would be a lot of fun.

  28. 5 September 2014 / 10:17 PM

    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.

  29. 5 September 2014 / 8:26 PM

    What a fun post! I would love to take a burlesque class. They look like a lot of fun.

    • 6 September 2014 / 12:04 AM

      Whoa! Burlesque scares me to death. So much exposure!!! I have friends who are amazing at it and I'd feel like a complete loser!! LOL

  30. 5 September 2014 / 11:52 AM

    Great tips. I've always wanted to take a belly dancing class but I've always been too scared.

  31. 5 September 2014 / 3:35 AM

    Love the foot jewelry – especially the ankle bracelets!

    • 12 September 2020 / 6:58 PM

      I love the gold rope looking anklet! I wanted to know where it’s available to buy. I looked around but found no links to it. I’m new here. If anyone can help, appreciate it.

  32. 5 September 2014 / 1:37 AM

    Love this. I have a collection of slave bracelets that I cherish so much

  33. 5 September 2014 / 12:43 AM

    Love this post!! I definitely need a reminder to be kind and love myself, and look for the beauty within! 🙂

    • 6 September 2014 / 12:07 AM

      I'm a runner too so I totally get it. My tootsies have to be pampered or they'll revolt!

  34. 4 September 2014 / 8:55 PM

    Awesome post! Loved that foot photo… I need to definitely up my sexy foot anti! Thanks for sharing!

  35. 4 September 2014 / 4:56 PM

    Awesome tips, I would love to do belly dancing but I think everyone would run out the room…lol I also like the tip of focusing on your favorite body part. Great post.

  36. 4 September 2014 / 4:46 PM

    Hey girl — I am about to embark on Tango lessons! I want to exercise in ways I find delicious!

    • 6 September 2014 / 12:10 AM

      Me too!!! I was just thinking about more fun exercise stuff today. LMK how the tango lessons go!! So exciting!

  37. 4 September 2014 / 3:54 PM

    I took a belly dancing class years ago with some girlfriends – it was a lot of fun!! I love your tip of focusing on your favorite body part – accentuate the positive! Great post!

  38. 4 September 2014 / 2:31 PM

    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.

    • 6 September 2014 / 12:02 AM

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

  39. 4 September 2014 / 1:41 PM

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