You don't have to love the sun and sand just because you live in a tropical country. Many people in the Philippines aren't beach babies, and that's not such a bad thing. So if you don't feel like your bod is summer-ready, or if you just don't want to expose yourself to the heat (and your skin to those naughty ultraviolet rays), here are some activities you can do that don't require you to slather on the SPF.
- Host a DVD marathon. Gather a bunch of DVDs, be it of your favorite movies or TV series, and invite friends over for fun and relaxing tube time. Serve rich cheesy treats (nachos, quesadillas, and cheese sticks!) to go with the cheesy subject matter.
- Play Strip Poker with your man. Who can say no to a round of pusoy? Challenge your man to a playful game with a naughty naked twist. Be warned: If the game continues and you've run out of clothes to strip off, a couple of sexy dares may follow as an alternate consequence.
- Savor a seasonal meal. It's time to give the South Beach Diet a break and enjoy blatantly summery treats with your guy, like chips and fresh salsa, fruit smoothies, grilled veggie kebabs, and sushi.
- Have a fantasy veg-out-session. Curl up with your favorite mags and rip out every "dream" page that catches your eye: sexy guys, fab furniture, exotic spas, designer clothes. Then look for a pattern in the pics to see what you craveâ€”maybe it's a more Zen pad or a tropical vacay.
