Mom’s Head-To-Toe List – Five Things to Do Before Summer

Summer has arrived, bringing with it the promise of sunshine, warmth, and lazy days by the pool. As a mom, preparing for swimsuit season might feel like a daunting task, but fear not!

This head-to-toe checklist will help you embrace summer with confidence and style.

1. Exercise

The arrival of summer means shedding those winter layers and revealing a bit more skin. If the winter months have left you feeling like the cellulite fairy paid an unwanted visit, it’s time to lace up those walking shoes or pop in an exercise video.

Whether it’s a brisk walk around the neighborhood or a lively dance workout in your living room, getting active is a great way to boost your confidence and get that summer glow.

2. Pluck or Wax Those Eyebrows

The bright summer sunlight can be unforgiving, highlighting every stray eyebrow hair. Avoid looking like Bert in a bikini by taking the time to shape and groom your eyebrows.

Whether you prefer plucking or waxing, a well-defined brow will add a touch of elegance to your summer look.

3. Swimsuit Shopping

While swimsuit shopping might not be at the top of your list of favorite activities, it’s a necessary step in preparing for summer. Opting for a well-fitted, flattering swimsuit will make you feel confident and ready to hit the pool or beach.

Embrace the challenge, and remember, you’re not alone in the struggle – we’ve all been there, trying on swimsuits in the fitting room and questioning our life choices.

4. Body Hair

Winter tends to be a time when keeping up with shaving takes a back seat. If the thought of another summer spent shaving is daunting, consider exploring alternative options. Home waxing kits or even laser hair removal are becoming popular choices.

Find a method that suits you and wave goodbye to winter fuzz, welcoming smooth and radiant skin.

5. Feet

Sandal season demands attention to our often neglected feet. Bid farewell to scratchy, rough, lizard-like feet by giving them a good buff or, if necessary, use a power sander (figuratively speaking). Once your feet are transformed from hobbit-like to people-friendly, treat yourself to a pedicure.

Dust off a bottle of your favorite toenail polish, add a cute toe ring, and watch as your feet become summer-ready.


With these five essential steps, you’ll be fully prepared to embrace swimsuit season as the sun goddess you are. So, grab a little drink umbrella, drop it into your diet Coke, and revel in the joys of summer with confidence and style.

You’ve earned it, Mom!
