What is the Lu Lu Lifestyle?

Getting our hair did in Ho Chi Minh City.

Lu Lu is short for Leiha and Su. We thought it sounded better than SuLeiha plus, it was a way to get my initial in there first. 🙂

We first met in 2004 (seems like we’ve known each other even longer). We both belonged to the same romance reader message board RBL Romantica. Was our online home for a long time until social media came along. RBL members were all over the world and they started to have once a year trips to Vegas so that we could get together in person. I had been going a few years already when Su announced that she would be joining us. The funniest thing about this is, it’s the first time Su ever posted. While I commented on everyone’s post (because I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings) she never commented. But our response was fantastic, can’t wait to meet you!

I opened the door to RBL Central and Su hopped into my arms and that was the introduction of her into my life. Eventually, our once a year gathering in Vegas became a trip to New Orleans, then the Jersey Shore and so on and so on and so on. Every place I’ve moved to in the last 12 years Su has come to visit. If I plan a trip, it’s pretty much a given that Su will be joining me. I had a girls weekend planned in FL and she surprised us, she hates to miss a party! We see her about 4 times a year which is pretty awesome considering that we live in different states. There are people who live near me who I see less.

Besides being two hot Asians we are extremely different yet there are things we do have in common. We love to travel, eating is a passion, you will soon be seeing lots of food pics and we love to have fun. We believe in being kind to people and neither of us like drama unless we’re watching it on tv. Since we’re the same age, we  can easily relate to the same things. The struggles of getting older (although we look younger than we are, my body feels older than it looks), trying to stay healthy (she’s more successful at that than I am), what’s our next meal going to be?

We were recently talking about getting back in shape Su suggested that we start a blog. Originally it was going to be about us trying to get back into shape, it’s May, no more excuses for my winter weight and then we decided, if we’re going to do this, we might as well go all in and The Lu Lu Lifestyle was born. We are hoping that not only will this be our new online home, it will be your new online home also. We are hoping to update a few times a week at least. The more you participate and comment, the more motivated we will be to write. Hopefully, this becomes a safe place for everyone to come and play.

We have some plans on things that we would like to feature, of course, we will be talking books and tv but if there’s anything you’d like to talk about, let us know. We love healthy conversation. Just keep in mind, due to the fact that we want to keep this site positive, no politics or religious discussions will be allowed. Let’s have fun with each other!

    Wow! Only since 2004? That blew me away as you two seem to be BFF for decades [not that either of you are old enough to have made that happen] but at least since you were toddlers. What a grand new adventure for you both!!! Hugs ~ Mary B 🙂

      We love you too Sue! Having a masseuse in my life completes me. 🙂

      I kid, I kid (ok maybe a little of that is the truth) but I also love you for the person that you are and I look forward to you being with us on some of our adventures!

    I didn’t realize that’s how you both met!
    RBL is how I got to know you and then meet up when you moved to ATL.
    You introduced me to Su (among several hundred other awesome folks).
    Coooool!

      Yep, I met a lot of fantastic women who are still friends thru RBL. Linda and Beaty are coming thru town in a few weeks and a few of us will be meeting up with them. My first online home was a wonderful place and of course, I met you thru RBL! You and Brian were my welcome wagon in Atlanta!
