I'm Liking The New Me!

Dear Diary:

A few weeks ago, I posted that I finally had a different look.  I wasn't totally accepting of this new me but since then I've grown to "like" her.  I tweaked a little here, a little there and am gradually getting me to look more like me.  Does that make sense??

Well, since I first purchased my head, I got an update with some added features and a few days after that I received a revision to my body, again with more great perks.  So really I'm a brand new me...AGAIN!!


Of course I couldn't dress in old clothes when I was so rejuvenated so I did a intensive shopping trip.  There go the $$!!

I was so pleased with it all that it required a selfie.

An added thank you to the vendors, LeLutka and Maitreya, for sending an update of their creations at no cost to the buyer.  That's a very generous gift.

Good Night for now.

This Is My Favourite Time Of Day

Dear Diary:

I'm an early riser.  I haven't always been that way.  My Mom would be up around 5am and I could never understand how she could get up that early...or why she would want to.  But as I've become older, I know why she did this.  Early morning is definitely the best time of day.

I'm up by 6am whether it's a work day, holiday or day off.  I get up; put the coffee on; and enjoy the first cup of the day in the quietness of the new dawn.  I love having the time to myself, for reflection, for reservation and for relaxation.

Yes, this is my favourite time of the day.

Good Night for now.

A New Look For Me

Dear Diary:

I've succumbed!!  All my friends, neighbours and people I meet in the malls, question me on why I'm still wearing my old head.  OK....OK...OK.  I get it!  Let's get on with what's "in"!!  So I gave in.  I've been checking out the mesh heads for ages but now with bento being so big, I decided to give it a try.  Of course I wanted something that looked like me but friends told me, " Try them.  It might be the new you".  So I demoed them all and finally came up with one I liked.  I'm now wearing LeLutka Chloe.  I look at myself and still think I don't look like me but I'm really trying. I'm adjusting different parts of the head occasionally and feel confident I will like myself when I manage to look like myself.

Chloe, my friend, also converted to a new look.  She bought a mesh head last fall so I got her to come and take a pic with me.  Here we are...or who we are now.

Chloe told me at first she wasn't happy at how she looked but she's persevered and adjusted as she sees fit.  She looks great!! I will do the same.

Good Night for now.

Bikini Season Is Just Around The Corner

Dear Diary:

At this time of year I start thinking - should've, would've, could've - in obvious dismay to the extra pounds I've put on over the winter months.  I think it's called hibernation!! So in both worlds, I decided to start getting in shape now.

At the Gym:

I always start with a good warm-up.

Some floor exercises help with
getting muscles moving and
provides a lot of stretching to
loosen up.

Using the weights is my favourite
exercise.  I like to keep my upper body
firm and make sure my core is strong.

Of course this is my favourite exercise of all.
Relaxing after a great work out.

I hope after all of this I'll be able to squeeze into my bikini without looking like a sausage in a casing!

Good Night for now.

I'm wearing:
Hair: elua Yepa
Sports bra: Just Because Casey (tropics prints)
Shorts: Atomic Chill Out Booty Shorts (purple)
Sneakers: Tetra air sneakers (lime)

Ahhh Yes! Shoe Love!

Dear Diary:

There's no doubt about it!  I love my shoes!  In both lives, my closet is full of shoes - stilettos, sneakers, or sandals - they're all there.

In my second world, there are so many excellent shoe creators so when you can find them all in one place it's a bonus.  Shoetopia is my shopping paradise.

So...out with the old...and in with the new!  I spent my lindens with great joy.  There is a great variety of styles and colours to choose from.  At first the sim was so busy you couldn't get in but the crowd has thinned enough to fly in for a shopping spree. 

See you there!

Good Night for now.
