Hi everyone! It's been such a long time since I posted regularly here. Hopefully that will change. This year's been a new experience for me since I've been living full time as a woman. My rule is every day when I go to work or otherwise out of the house, I have to dress and act fully as a woman. This includes what we all adore- makeup. And not just some foundation and mascara, but the works- powder, at least two shades of eyeshadow, eyeliner, brow pencil, mascara, foundation, blush and lipstick. The good news is I've succeeded! My coworkers have been a huge help. They accept me completely and a few have asked me lately if I want to be referred to as she or he. My mom's also recently accepted who I am and has been very helpful and encouraging. My general atire every day consists of a blouse or sweater, womens' slacks and ballet flats. Because of this year's success, I want to be even more of a woman next year. One of my new goals for 2010 is to wear high heels daily to work, so I recently bought a pair of three inch mary janes and a pair of three inch boots, both non-stiletto (my current pairs of high heels are all five inch stilettos which kill my feet after four hours of standing). I also want to start wearing skirts at least a couple days a week, so bought a new scarlet godet skirt to add to the two I already own. I hope to wear one to work for the first time on Monday, since my legs are shaved from Halloween anyway. My most important goal for next year is to always have breasts when I'm out. To that end, I bought my first bra(!), along with C-cup fillers. I'm a little nervous about it, but know it will help me feel more like a woman. I've spoken with some good friends and had other goals recommended as well. For instance, I want to start styling my hair on some days to make it curled, braided or in an updo. I also want to wear false lashes at least once a week. These are both especially true since I curled my hair and wore falsies yesterday for Halloween. I was hoping you Specktra girls could help me think of some additional ways to look and/or act as a woman this next year, as part of my goal to eventually become one. I plan to become an active member of this forum again as well. Sorry about my long absence. I know I can always count on you for encouragment.
