Although bikini season is over for the year, Victoria’s Secret model Lindsay Ellingson says it’s possible to stay motivated during the autumn and winter.

“Make it convenient,” Ellingson tells PEOPLE. “Find a workout that’s two blocks from your apartment.”

The model, 30, also recommends hot yoga, “It’s so warm and cozy,” she says. “Get some warm boots to put on afterwards.”

Ellingson says she works out every other day and doesn’t use a trainer, but she gets personal attention at her New York City yoga studio.

“Yoga 216. It’s a really small studio. There’s only six people at a time in a class.” she says, “It’s basically like going to a trainer because you get that extra attention, which I love.”

The model’s latest workout obsession is ankle weights. “I travel constantly, but I’m not into gyms. I don’t know what to do with all the equipment!” she says. “[With ankle weights] you can do squats. You can do ballet bar lifts with your legs. You can grab a chair and do ballet bar!”

When it comes to food, Ellingson says she allows herself a cheat meal from time to time. “I love bare burger. Having a delicious cheeseburger with cheddar and avocado with french fries.”

Ellingson married Sean Clayton last summer and is still basking in her newlywed glow, “It’s so nice to have a partner in crime and be like, that part of my life is settled.” she says, “I feel so at peace. I found the guy with the biggest heart and I’m so grateful and thankful for that.”

As for when they’ll start a family of their own, “I think in a few years” she says, “We’re enjoying being newlyweds and traveling together. But I can’t wait to have kids. I imagine what my little girl is going to look like.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
