This is a new feature that I think a lot of Simmers will enjoy.
Lifestyles more or less represent your Sims - so, pick the right activities for your beloved Sim, and through time, it would develop enough to reward him/her.
Good To Know
♥ In the beginning, all lifestyles are locked.
♥ To unlock a lifestyle, you must engage in activities that are related to that specific lifestyle.
♥ A lifestyle marked as "in progress" means that you have started a new set of activities.
♥ A lifestyle marked as "active" means that you have worked enough on a set of activities to unlock its effect.
♥ A lifestyle marked as "at-risk" means that you are losing the lifestyle due to inactivity.
♥ Unwanted lifestyles may be removed by hiring a Lifestyle coach, or you may use a reward potion called the "Lifestyle-go-poof" potion.

The Snowy Escape pack offers 2 new aspirations:

Sentiments are feelings that your Sims have for one another. Two Sims may share the same feelings for one another, or they may not. Memories, moments and the atmosphere may affect your Sims' sentiments.
Know more on Sentiments, here.
Lifestyles and sentiments make the game more enjoyable. Without these, I did not care much for the interaction among my Sims. With these additions, I can take my time making my Sims fall in love, rather than speeding everything up.
I give these new additions a 5-star rating. How about you? Is it worth your 5 stars?
Lifestyles, Aspirations and Sentiments - you are here
