Princess Cruise

In June, my husband and I went on a Cruise, Princess Caribbean. We went to St. Thomas, St. Marteen and Princess Cays. We had a wonderful time. Seven days in total bliss.

We ate so much on the ship, did alot of eating and enjoying perfect weather. There was no rain the entire cruise. Our cruise was for 7 days.

On the ship, we entered a dance contest. We did a salsa routine. They gave us outfits to wear and we did an excellent job. I was definitely into it.

The Princess Cruise ship was absolutely beautiful. It was just like being in an expensive hotel. We was on Deck 11 with a beautiful view. We had a mini suite with a balcony view. This photo is the middle of the ship. Every night they have movie night at midnight. Its called "Movie Under the Stars." It was very romantic sitting outside and watching movie. They had the nerve to show the movie "Titanic", lol. Nobody watched that movie that night, lol.

At the ports we did some touring, kayaking and power snorkeling for the first time. I was scared at first because I don't know how to swim, but I had on a safety jacket. We snorkel at St. Maarten. We took a banana boat to a little island to power snorkel. After being in the water for a while I wasn't scared anymore. I power snorkeled all over the place and had alot of fun. Unfortunately, I ran into a coral reef and had scabs all over my leg. So I have souvenirs on my legs to remind me of St. Maarten, lol.

After being banged up from power snorkeling, we spent the rest of the afternoon on the beach. It was absolutely beautiful. The water was a pretty clear blue. The sand were white and the palm trees looked absolutely beautiful. Everything, I imagined. I got alot of compliment on my SLs. I really enjoyed myself. Next year, we plan to go to Hawaii. I can't wait.

I love retigtening my hair and my SL Journal

I took my retightening class back in May. Unfortunately, I left confused and still didn’t understand how to do my own hair. I was taught how to use the hook but not the tool because I was told that hook was much easier to use. Well at first I liked the hook, but sometimes my hair would get caught in the hook and I would have pieces of my hair in the hook. At my appt with my new consultant, I spoke to the one and only, Dr. Cornwell on the telephone. I told her my experience at the retightening class. She offered to me another free retightening class which I went to and I was happy and understood how the do my hair. I was taught the SL hook and SL tool. Which one do I prefer? I prefer the SL tool. After practice for a while I FINALLY GOT THE HANG OF IT, lol. I retighten my hair all the time and I enjoy doing it. I do a few at a time at home, work and on the train. I measured my hair with a ruler. My hair is about 7-8 inches. My hubby says my arms will be stronger from retightening, lol.

I also received my SL Journal. I was so happy to receive it. I missed the first issue which I hope I can somehow get a copy of. I carry my journal with me all the time. Chicago is representing in the recent journal with Cherie, Arlanda, Darryl and Beverly. I can't wait til the next issue comes out. Sorry that the pics are blurry. Time to get another camera.:)
