Please me

“My life didn’t please me,
so I created my life”
~Coco Chanel

Recently I have been needing a change of work, but not only a change of jobs, I needed a change in careers. So I set out and applied, and I’m happy to report that I did find another job. The hours will be even longer, and I might blog even less, but I’m really excited. I’ll start in two weeks and it’s hectic finalizing everything.

Touch of Nostalgia

Touch of Nostalgia
Every time someone walk past me wearing  high-waisted jeans, I say the same thing. A person  shoudn’t have to live through the same ugly fashions more than once. If you have ever laughed at your clothes in old photos, there can be no going back.  Okay I’m not THAT old, but I never liked the high waisted stuff.

Flattering fashions, of course is a different matter, it works and we can happily pull it on over our head (or onto your feet) again and again. Like this dress that will be available from Maai pretty soon at the 100 Block Event. The style will always be classic, and the lace gives it a hint of a vintage look. It comes with Tango appliers. It needs to be bigger or it does not 100% match up at the shoulders, so if you like your Tango and love the hour glass look this dress is perfect! With or without Tango’s this dress is classic.

Attention. Intention.

I read a very interesting article today around being aware of the words you use. Do you normally use words that may be perceived as negative or do you generally us positive phrases? Do you say stuff like ‘I’m trying to lose weight’? Or do you say I made the decision to lead a healthy life? ‘Trying’ implies that you may or may not fail, which gives you the option to fail. That may be perceived as negative, were making a decision to live healthier, is more definite, more positive and leaves less room for failure. This can be applied to most words we use. This just proves that words have a huge influence on mindsets. It shows the power that words can have.

I wonder if words will change my impulsive buying streak. I always said that I wouldn’t buy Lola Tango’s but yes, I have. They are still boxed in my inventory for the past 3 days, but I do have them. In my defense  I blame it on the Whore Couture Fair. I visited the fair and the clothes on offer are so amazing, I just had to get them. The outfit below is Whore Couture inspired. The top is from Spearsong and then I had a sneak preview of the Skin Fair – oh wow! The  quality is amazing. I just a to get his skin from Izzie’s – yup and a few others too! Skin fair is coming soon!

Peer Pressure

One of my favorite sims to visit is Izzie’s Mainstore. Not only do I love the clothes and accessories, I also adore the sim.  Normally after a shopping spree, I hop outside and enjoy the grass, trees, walkways and butterflies, such a photographers delight. So yesterday I decided I needed some picnic like photos and went to Izzie’s.

Big was my surprise when I arrived. She turned the wonderland of greenery into an Autumn paradise! I had to rethink my whole theme, but she  just inspired me with the wonderful yellows, reds and browns. Then I remembered that I recently did some shopping at Mon Tissu and have not blogged about it yet. Again, so many people have blogged about it, but I think it’s always good to see it combined with something different. So I decided on a brown short, as it’s not so cold yet, beige slouch long sleeve top, and my new well-loved shoes from KIKI.

I have used a windlight that Jack MrWorldwide created. It works very well with my skin. 🙂
