Online casinos are currently accessible on phones, tablets, and desktops, so you can join in casino tournaments and championships anywhere you want and at whatever time. In light of this, casinos have had an enormous surge in interest over the last two decades. People enjoy having the freedom to play from the privacy of their own home without needing to get spruced up, and it also means they can practise without having to pay a thing, so eventually go to a real casino they can go as high rollers. Real casinos haven’t been affected by the online casino industry and keeps going from strength to strength because they offer things like music and dance entertainment and also places to eat all within the complex of the casino.
It’s generally a good idea to check the website or telephone the casino to find out where the casino stands on dress code. Mobile phones are good to practise, website such as http://www.jackpotcity.co.uk provide plenty of online casino games. The general guideline is to try for a smart/casual look. Being dressed well might be a good investment because it could mean drinks on the house from the staff and special attention from everyone in the casino. Casinos like to see individuals who seem as though they are going to spend lots of money, so it’s definitely worth looking the part. A few looks to consider are perhaps a mid-length dress, maybe a skirt and blouse, or even a trouser suit or skirt suit decorated with some sparkly jewellery can make you stand out. If you are there to gamble, it’s fun to dress the part. ¾ trousers with a shirt and blazer looks classy and oozes power and control, something that could be handy against your rivals. If you want to go for a more feminine look, you could wear a pretty dress as long as it’s not too revealing.
Alright, I’m just gonna admit defeat and say that I can’t keep this blog regularly updated for the life of me. The winter blues having been kicking me down and constantly traveling when I’m awful at time management doesn’t help either.
Valentine’s is a bit of a cheesy holiday but I’ll be the first to admit that I just love it. Red, hearts everywhere and cute little trinkets to obsessively collect. I normally make a point of going post-Valentine’s day to grab whatever I can 50% off but this year it just didn’t happen for me. I did, however, finally get my first V-day date and boy was it ever perfect! Gil and I spent most of the day contemplating if we actually wanted to get out but decided on dinner and drinks. He got me the Canon t3i and surprised me with a hand written card in my suitcase after I have a pouty baby stint. Needless to say, I felt really silly after I discovered it!
I had originally planned to wear something really sultry and vampy but after getting this absolutely perfect eShakti dress, I couldn’t imagine a better outfit to wear. I don’t know about everyone else but I’ve been a little disappointed with eShakti as of late. The last few pieces weren’t made nearly as well as I’m used to and I wasn’t really lusting over any winter items. I remember going a bit gaga last year over their Valetine’s collection and thankfully this was just as good and I nabbed this piece of $17 after applying a bunch of discounts! Its the first dress that has actually fit so well that I don’t think I’ll need to alter it whatsoever, which worked out perfectly seeing as I didn’t try it on until the very night I wore it out. I’m so sorry for the lack of detail in these shots but my shoes weren’t very cute thanks to a big snow storm outside and I really didn’t realize that you couldn’t see my earrings. Trust me, they were cute!

I met with one of my old high school teachers yesterday and aside from remembering how much of a crush I had on him as a 15 year old, I was reminded of how I felt back then. Stupid, overwhelmed and hopeless. It was a little shocking because well, its been awhile since I could actually remember that exact feeling but I’ll tell you this, triggers exist in the weirdest way. So while I talked about my new life and he told me about his, I remembered the girl I used to be. The one that used to cry all the time over her weight, the one that thought she couldn’t ever get a boyfriend, the one that gave up in high school because of bullying and learning disabilities. It was humbling, to say the very least.
I came home both overjoyed and a little sad. Mostly because I felt in some ways I failed my younger self. Sure, I took the time to love who I am physically but in so many ways, I’ve stopped trying to encourage myself in others. I stopped trying to remind myself that I’m smart and I have the skills to accomplish what I need. I stopped trying to remind myself that I’m strong and I can get through this. If I opened any of my 10+ journals from my teenage years, I’d have at least 3 pages dedicated in each to remind me of who I once was and how proud of who I am now or at least who I thought I’d be (sorry 14 year old Sarah, no kids yet!). I spent most of my morning thinking about the ways that I still want to improve and the ways I still put myself down.
It takes literally no effort for me to tell myself things like “You’re stupid”, “you can’t do this”, “why even bother”, “told’ya you were wrong” but it requires an awful lot of time and energy to try and talk over that. Its funny how one 2hr meeting really helped me remember all the ways I owe it to myself.
