The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery.
This post takes GREAT courage (although jsut between you and me...I have no idea what vicissitudes means).

And I feel like the cat that is walking in front of all those dogs right now. This little cat sure does have some courage.
Did I mention I love dogs?

Yesterday I told you that I bought some new swimmers for my holiday and promised that I would put some pictures up of me in them so I could see what you thought.

So after a long day I took some photos. I have to say the vibrant blue colour doesnt seem to come out as well in the photos as it is in reality but it is definitely like the colour shown in the flower here.

While I was looking at the photos, I realised how white my legs were. They don't get out very much ever and it is Winter so they are like two white ghosts. Some tanning (spray, bottle, sun) will hopefully fix that.

Anyway here they are.

Still have a bit of work to do to turn the gluteus maximus into a gluteus minimus!

And it can also be made strapless.
My other half likes this option LOL!

I also tried on a bikini that I bought 3.5 years ago and only wore half a dozen times.
The picture on the left was when I tried it on 1month ago. The picture on the right is from today.

I can really see a difference here.
Not enough to make me wear it as my mummy tummy with stretchmarks on it is still there.

 Okay so that's me. Not sure how long I will leave these pics up. I think I have embarrassed myself enough and I have not even pressed publish post yet!

4 weeks to go!


  1. Hi Ali,
    I'm a first time commenter to your blog but just wanted to say hi and that you should be really proud of the pics you posted today. There is an amazing difference between the bikin photo last month and now. Also, I love the blue one piece. Your stomach looks so flat. I'm glad to have found your blog and look forward to reading about your continued success. P.s. the aussie expressions you have for swimsuits are really cute.
