Spoon Full of Sugar

Spoon Full of Sugar

I am like a lot of women in the world where I like to watch my weight and I like to try to feel great in my skin. This post is going to be talking about both of these things; however, I am going to be very transparent about my RL. Obviously weight isn’t an issue in Second Life because you can easily slide your slider on your appearance tab any way that you need to. In Real Life it is a completely different story. I use to be a skinny size 4 and to me I felt I was comfortable. I slowly gained weight over the years from my emotional eating when my husband would deploy or something of that nature. Eventually I found myself where I am now after having a child and many health issues which have prevented me from doing the amount of exercise I use to do. Eventually I just kept making excuses not to do anything because it was easier than doing something. Frustration set in and about a month ago I decided I had enough. I started taking something called Plexus slim which is an all natural drink that you just drink in the morning 30 minutes before breakfast. After about a week of doing this and then adding more of their products I have to say I have felt better at this point that I have in the last 8 years. That is a big thing for me. I am not huge by any means, but I am sleeping better, have more energy, and I have stopped drinking any sugary drinks and eating sweets. I couldn’t have done that on my own. I was pretty much addicted to sugar. People say all the time that with the correct diet and exercise that you can lose weight and not take something… but yet I did try that about 5 years ago and the weight wouldn’t budge. Next week will be my 30 days and I cannot wait to see the results that are coming from this. I can feel them, but the numbers kinda show more since I am not going to post a before and after photo here. If you are curious about what Plexus could do for you or if you have questions I really hope that you message me privately. Something that completely changed my life can change yours and it is the same cost as buying a soda or energy drink a day. Pretty nice to swap something bad like those for something all natural and healthy like Plexus. The best part is if your not happy you get a 60 day money back guarantee. What soda company offers that? lol Anyway, I just wanted to do a pre post about what I will be posting about next week when I come back with my numbers. Am pretty thrilled so far! TOOTLES

Love and Sacrifice

What Mothers Day means to me is to acknowledge the love and sacrifice that my mother gave to and for me and then as a mother myself to realize that I will have to give my own sacrifices in time. I wish mothers everywhere a wonderful day and I pray for the continued support that you give because it isn’t easy being a mother. Just something short today in memory… TOOTLES

Keeping you up to date

I have been extremely busy in real life, but I wanted to take a chance to let you know a few things. First off, The Skin Fair begins tomorrow. I have already shown you a beautiful Tess skin by Belleza in my previous post, but now I want to show you Doretta. I am absolutely in love with this skin from Pink Acid. There are very few TMP mesh head appliers that I actually like, but this one has become the top of my list. This skin is available in five different shades. The next big thing to know is that Soonsiki has moved and now has a new fatpack out as a group gift. The hair above is called Diamond and I love the wave. My hair does this naturally when its humid so I just had to grab it. Last but certainly not least, Designer Showcase is still going on for the month of March. I haven’t really been around to blog for this event at the beginning of the month. Some cute stuff this round that needs to be seen. Great prices as well! I think that is all for now so enjoy 🙂 TOOTLES

1.11.15.1

Another Monday and I am worn out. Weekends do take it out of you if you do more than just laying around the house. I haven’t done a weekly reflection in a while so I thought I would do one for now. Things in RL as settling down a little bit and this morning I got an unexpected call that pretty much made all the bad this past week turn to good in a matter of a few minutes. I won’t go into crazy boring details about my RL, but this was much needed and was cause for this past week being not so great. The stress of everything does seem to catch up. I come to SL to relax and get away from the stress so to my surprise I seem to log in to even more in world than in RL. I had to just push all of that away this week and try to send out positive energy to the people I can about. My RL is nothing like some peoples, so I do not know how they can deal with it sometimes. Stronger than I am for sure! I have also began blogging this past week… just for me! I have a few sponsors who I still love and adore and wouldn’t want to part with ever, but mostly I am sponsor free now and the feeling of being able to blog what I want and when I want is so lovely. I do not feel I have to be online to blog all the time and it really allows me to enjoy SL now. I will be focusing on doing things a tad different to come this week. I am going to pledge to do Berry’s monday memes from now on and will probably be posting those on Wednesdays. I also want people to know that I am a real person with real issues… I am not a person who is peachy all the time and I think it’s ok not to be, so for this reason I will continue with my dirty little secrets posts to come. Sharing a little more about myself that you may not know and hopefully this will help everyone to open up about the real person they are instead of a shield that people put up in this type of world. Anyway… more to come as always and have a fabulous week! TOOTLES

P.S. Found a new fabulous hair store that is opening up a store in the next few days… Am wearing the hair below and I LOVE the textures. There are 3 hairs available at The Seasons Story right now and I had to get all 3. Check it out!

Trust

When you feel depressed, confused or hurt, don’t worry. Stand in front of a mirror, you will find the best one to solve your problem. TRUST YOURSELF!” – unknown author

We all go through those moments when we doubt our abilities and doubt if we are doing the right thing. I began a week of positive thinking on Tuesday (I hate beginning things on Mondays), and that is when the doubt hit me. I finally do not want to have a negative thought and all I was thinking was horrible things like “I am not good enough” or “Why did this or that happen.. is it something I did?” This is a huge struggle for me and those closer to me understand this. I am constantly going back and forth about what I should do and over analyzing everything and every step that I take. It is exhausting! lol The letting go this week has been extremely hard but I want to start trusting myself and my abilities to do what I enjoy and what I love. The take from is just to trust myself… trust that I have my best interest at heart and to expect the unexpected and embrace it. That’s all I have for the day 🙂 TOOTLES!

9.16.14.1There are so many different things going on, but some of our old faithfuls are still happening. That would be our regular store releases like this new Truth hair that I am wearing. Truth released 2 new hairs this week and of course amazing as always. A sexy look for sure. Also, Designer Showcase is going on until the end of this month and here I am wearing the physique applier outfit by Artizana. They have appliers for everything, so do not feel limited if you find that you do not have the physique slink body. My shoes are by DE Boutique and you can also find those in a few colors at Designer Showcase. Just so happened that the pink matched the outfit perfectly! I love it when that happens at these events. Happy Shopping! TOOTLES
