Check this out please!

Hi guys, sorry I haven't been updating. I've detached myself from the simming world for a few weeks and will continue to do so until mid-June, when my GCSE exams are over. They are very important, so the more time I spend revising and less time I spend simming, the better.

Anyway, I didn't come here to talk about that. I've actually come here to do a favour for one of my closest friends, who has recently started up a YouTube channel. He is absolutely HILARIOUS, and although he only has two videos up at the moment, I'm pretty sure there will be more coming soon!

So could you please check it out - like, subscribe, comment!

Thanks & I will be back some point in the future.
Lots of love xoxo

I can't think of anything creative to name this post...

LOL, yeah. This is just a standard updates post, but I bet you must all be sick of me writing 'Updates' in the title every post, so I thought I would name it something different. It wasn't too successful!


Le Raunche Finale
Willow Moore

We had to show our model doing housework while bringing the sex appeal, and I'm soooo happy with the result!

I'm really sad that this is the finale of this cycle though, because I truly, utterly love Le Raunche. Seriously. It's one of the best comps I have had the pleasure of being in. Hopefully a new cycle will come out in the future, and you can bet I'm joining that!

PINK Assignment 6 - Puppets
Willow Moore
We had to show our model as a puppet while keeping a high fashion medium. I, honest to God, HATE this picture with a PASSION. I got to the point that I was on the verge of tears when creating it. I have the feeling I'm going to be eliminated, and if I'm not I will be very surprised (and grateful!).
The only good thing is that Willow looks stunning. But that is all.

Results for Girls Just Wanna Hve Fun Cycle 4
Serena VanHouston
We got the results and I came in the midfield, which I don't mind at all! I would have never won or placed in the top three with the amazing talent showcased in the competition. Phebes and Fel created these little signatures for everyone with their own superlative... I got 'Most Improved' which makes me very happy, as all I want to do in my modelling career is IMPROVE. And it's nice to be appriciated for that :)

This is going to go in my little siggy corner on the right with pride!

Long overdue.

Updates, of course! Just realised I haven't updated for 18 days  I'm sure you have missed me ;)

Le Raunche Assignment 6 - Jeans Advert
Willow Moore
I actually love my assignment so much. It was so simple, yet I think it is one of my all-time favourites.
And I completely overuse that pose on my ladies, even though it was made for men.

And I came second! :)

Le Raunche Assignment 7 - Neon Headshot
Willow Moore
I'm not particularly fond of this photo. I think I could have done a lot better, as heavy editing is not my strong point.

And here was the before shot:
I got somewhere in the midfield, which I was expecting to be honest. I just want to build up as many points as possible in each assignment, as the next assignment is the last and I really want to be in the top three!

PINK Assignment 5 - Boxes as props
Willow Moore
We were given a prop (which was a set contain stylised boxes) and we had to incorporate it in the photo, leaving free rein for the styling, set and theme. I went for an attic theme, and I was really happy with the CC I found. It really looked like an attic, and now I'm inspired to create attics to my in-game simmies, although they can't use it for anything xD
Anyway, here is my picture:

I was extremely pleased with it, and came second! I've been up and down the scoreboard like crazy in this comp, now I just hope I can maintain these high scores, instead of dropping near the bottom again.

I'll let you in on something though: I have NEVER come first in an assignment. NEVER. So I guess I'm just getting a bit frustrated now that I keep getting second and not first... but I can't take second for granted, as it is really a great score!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Finale - Graduation, Yearbook Superlatives and Adult Headshot
Serena Van Houston
Yes, these were my very last photos for GJWHF! I've learnt a lot about in-games during this competition, and for that I am grateful!

New piccies

Le Raunche Assignment 5 - Willow Moore
We had to show our model wearing autumn clothes in the summer, and I went for a picnic theme. Shame I couldn't for the life of me find the in-game picnic basket. So I improvised with a rug and some CC, and then Drew kindly pointed out you can only buy picnic baskets on home lots, which completely made sense as I was using a public lot xD
Oh well, I'm happy with the final result.

GJWHF Assignment 8 - Serena Van Houston
We had to show prom! Which I was expecting of course, because the climax of high school is prom! I think it's among my better pictures in the competition, even though I did rush it!

Prom was fairly low-budget this year. Due to the recession, our school had decided to cut 75% of the funding for the event, much to the dismay of the students. However, I was determined it would be a good evening, and signed up for the Prom Committee in order to make sure it was. Everything came together, just under our allocated budget.
I spent three months prior to the event looking for the perfect dress. I had almost given up hope when I saw the prettist, most gorgeous dress ever. A long, floaty, pale dusky blue dress, that made me feel like a princess when I tried it on. I had to have it.
Then came the dilemma of getting a date. While everyone was hooking up, I had my doubts. I mean, everyone assumed Alex would ask me, but I wasn't sure if he would. Sometimes we acted like friends, other times a couple, and I wasn't actually sure if we were in an exclusive relationship or not. But luckily, a couple of days before the prom, he asked me, and I happliy accepted.
We spent all night by each other's side, and when a slow song came on, he pulled me close and we floated to the music. I closed my eyes, in heaven.
It was the best night ever, by far.

Serena's so gorgeous, I think I might age her up after the competition ends and make her a full-time model alongside Willow and Gabriella.

PINK Assignment 4 - Willow Moore
The brief was to make our model quite "masculine" and model in an advert for men's cologne. I really did struggle with ideas for this, as most contestants went for suits/tuxes. I decided to go a bit edgy with it, sorta like a biker (just without the motorbike xD).
I think it is one of the best pictures I have ever done! I don't think I met the assignment brief though, so I'm expecting to be near or at the bottom of scores.

Woohoo, I'm finally 16 years old!

Not much has changed since I was fifteen, I still can't legally much stuff, except for entering the lottery.. or.. having relations, if you get what I mean (not that I'm going to, of course!!)

I had a good weekend though, on Saturday I had a day out with my friends. We ate at the amazing Nandos, and then chilled out in our local park. Sounds boring I know, but when my friends are around there's never a dull moment hehe. Then I came home and had chinese takeaway with my immediate family.
Then today I had a meal with my immediate & extended family, so I've had a very good weekend.
Shame my birthday is sandwiched between two very important maths exams! :(

While I'm here, I might as well update you with some competition stuff...

PINK Assignment 3
We had to create a lingerie ad, interacting with another model(s).
Just got scores and I came third! I'm really pleased, I have vastly improved from my awful first round in this competition!

Le Raunche Assignment 4
We had to create a runway shot. I have seen many done before in the modelling world, but I never attempted one myself. However, I like how my jungle-themed shot came out!
I got 6th place for this, which I am happy about, as I'm improving and that's all that really matters :)

Anyway, I have to do some more maths revision (GROAN) so I'll talk to you later! :D

I JUST SAW SCORES FOR PINK AND I FRIKIN' GOT SECOND!!!!! Aaaaaaaah I'm so happy! I was NOT expecting that, especially in a competition with people who are way better than me! Seriously, I'm over the moon right now, I think this has given me a bit more confidence in my work.

And... breathe.

Well, what else has been happening?
I can now show you my Le Raunche Assignment 3. I did have to rush it, so it isn't my best work. Willow is portraying the stereotypical high school 'nerd'.
Score-wise, for last assignment (the CD cover) I came third, which like PINK, I'm very happy with! :D

I actually haven't really been on the internet since Sunday. My life has been insanely busy lately! School, exams, homework & coursework, simming pictures, fundraising, concerts etc. have whipped my life into a frenzy. This is actually the first time I have properly relaxed for a long while. Phew :3

I need to work on my GJWHF assignment, but I think I will do that tomorrow and just enjoy my moment of peace hehe x
