Another GLORIOUS week is upon us…Welcome, Fall!!
I have completed this week’s work, music & gym schedule, so feel pretty prepared!
This week, I start back with 4x per week Pilates, Yoga, weight training & water ballet classes.
Today marks my 5th day of being “added sugar”, processed/packaged food “FREE”…
the only sugar I allow is natural in Organic fruits and such. No bread, pasta or any of that.
No Frozen food (pizza, burritos, etc) Of course no “fast food” unless it is a salad, meat free,
with my own dressing.
This month marks one year I have been “diet cola” free, have not had ONE in this year :) do not
miss them at all, I thought I would, it was the ONLY thing I did have EVERY Day…and more than one!
Last month marked two years of no meat/poultry/pork, etc. or dairy (milk, eggs) and still do eat fish,
Where I have been slacking was the sugar, and bread, and processed/frozen/packaged foods, which is
why I am not yet at my ideal weight for my height. (around 130-140), so I am on a 90-day
plan, which then expands to March 01, 2015, when, if not already, I will DEF. be at my goal OR surpassed.
I am doing this for NO ONE, but myself.
I have a beautiful new sewing studio I have set up in the sunroom in my house, and it really inspired me to created beautiful and exciting new things, both for my #STEVIENICKS tribute shows with White Winged Dove,
as well as sales for my shoppe. (click to shop with me!)
My trainer & I have also charted out a great progress and workout / fitness plan, which also starts today.
I slacked off last time, but, while I cannot say exactly what my motivations are … I CAN tell you,
they are VERY VERY SERIOUS and VERY VERY AWESOME!!!! “I keep my visions to myself”…
As you know, if you read this blog, I am also writing a Journal of sorts, about my path from the 1970s
being a Stevie Nicks fan, tribute artist, and clothing/jewelry designer & creator.
This is NOT a “tell all” book of my life, because honestly, that is only MY business…this is STRICTLY
dealing with everything that has gone on in being a true Stevie fan and tribute…I have lots of stories, funny, interesting, and I will deal lightly with the “hater” side of it, but just a touch, haters are not worth my typing, honestly ;) and no one is really interested in those types of people.
There are a LOT of ideas I have for some great new finery, since no one online/brick & mortar, has a shoppe that SPECIALIZES only in #STEVIENICKSCLOTHING inspired BY her and designed with that in mind? Not saying you cannot find a beautiful vintage shawl, or a moon necklace, but you won’t find ALL OF IT in one shoppe, EXCEPT FOR MINE!!! (toots own horn LOL). There are velvet legwarmers, floppy berets, decorated top hats, beribboned tambourines, Rhiannon tops with hanky hem skirts, moon and pyramid necklaces, Wild Hearts, feathered headdresses, and much, much more…since I have my own design studio sunroom now, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!!!
Let me post a few ideas of what I hope to create (or have already created) in the coming months! You can click any of the photos to see full size :)
Stevie’s style is TOTALLY original, and unique, and only a LONG TIME TRUE FAN knows this…throwing on a shawl and boots does NOT give you a Stevie Nicks look, sure it may look cool….BUT…I am going for AUTHENTIC!!!! Being a fan, like FOREVER….I studied her clothing/jewelry/accessories because I LOVED them, and how she carried them off (NOT everyone can, believe me, I have seen some disasters HAHA :) I hope to appeal to Stevie tribute artists, Stevie fans and most importantly, if Stevie ever sees my shoppe or such, she would say “that’s cool”…her Mom told me in the 90s that she thought my tribute shows were “cool” so I use that word LOL! Stevie signed a “Rhiannon Hard Rock” tee shirt congratulating me on my performance at the Fleetwood Mac convention in Texas, so that DEF. was “COOL”…unfortunately it was destroyed along with many things when I lost my house… BUT I know one day she will sign something COOL for me again ;) so it is all ok, I have the memories….THAT is what matters.
ANYWAY….Wishing you all a GLORIOUS week…we are not really outside the rain this week…it is visiting every day, but I love storms…
“I have always…been a storm”…right?
