05/28/11 - BRAXTONS!!!!!

Lots of updates!!

First things first:

The newest addition to The Braxton Legacy!

This chapter is sort of random, the girls are becoming more and more domestic. *sigh*


I had to spend most of last week working on Sensation stuff, because I slacked off, and I was sick for a week. Blah. Oh well, it turned out to be fun!

I ended up finding my couple for Generations.

I'd now like to introduce you to Devani and Ardan.

They were only supposed to be modeling together, but they ended up being SO much more! I just kept taking pictures of them, because I was mesmerized by their cuteness. Their signs are compatible and everything. They just adored each other. I'm excited now!


With that in mind, I have three new guys up for download! Since my reinstall, I don't have many male models. Of course, I could have just picked through my old .sim files, but that wouldn't have been fun!

And, the best for last...

Let me know what you think of them! I still want to get some of my older ones up. 


I finally got the memory upgraded in my laptop, so I am Generations ready! WOOOO!!

Of course, it took a lot of effort, and if you are interested in reading about THAT adventure, you can find it here:


Well, I think that is about it!

I have a competition entry to work on for Exotica, and then I will be getting my town ready for Generations! If you have a sim you'd like to donate to be a townie, let me know! ;-)

I'm still I'm guessing that everyone else is still here. No apocalypse today, huh?

Anyways, I'm still banned from the forums. I have been sort of busy, anyways, so chances are I would not have been around much. *flips EA the bird*

I'm crossing my fingers that it will be lifted tomorrow. I would like to post scores for "GJWTHF." It's not really all my fault, I am still waiting on one judge to send in scores. :-)

Meanwhile, I will be joining Beech's "My New BFF" competition, for Teen Sensation. Hopefully, I make it though to the actual comp. I made a sim especially for this. Teens can be funny things to create. I decided to start from scratch and make one, rather than just aging down another model.

Therefore, we have Carly -

The face of an angel - the heart of an evil, high school girl that is willing to do anything she has to, to WIN.

You can find more info on her, here:
I absolutely can not freakin' WAIT until Generations comes out. I really don't want to stuff more money in EA's pockets, but since I just paid to upgrade mine AND my mom's computers to be able to play the game, I feel like it will be ok. *rolls eyes*

I am pausing the Braxton's until after it's release, although there is an update coming this week:

Two new chapters in less than a month's span? Even Fiona is shocked! :-P

Lots of stuff is going on, and I have lots of cutesy pictures, so I  might as well go ahead and write some new chapters before Gens comes out, because I am abandoning ALL STORIES until I have my fill of the new EP, and then they will commence. :-P

I still haven't really decided who I want to play with. It's a toss-up between Bridgette and Amelie. I'm so confused!

This week, other than writing the next Braxton chapter, and trying to get something out of Venus, I will be absorbed in competition/magazine work. :-)

Oh, and the new cycle of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" will come out this week! :-D Get ready to join!

05/19/11 - I'm the Newest Victim.

I have been banned from the EA forums. (temporary, of course)

...just thought I would do the obligatory blog post about it.


Monday, May 16, 2011

05/16/11 - No Title! :-)

Well...the forums are back. That's fun, right? ;-)

Oh well. At least I was able to do some scoring for my competitions! :-D

While they were down, I made another new sim for my magazine assignment. She will be working with Amelie. They will make a nice pair I think. You can find her here:

I also had my entry to do for "SNTM." Here it is:

It was supposed to be black and white using shadows and lighting effects. I'm not too sure how I feel about it, but I do feel like it was the best that I could do. Oh well - you can't win 'em all, right?

It sure doesn't look like it - but it took me FOREVER to do.

I extended the due date for "All About Me." I certainly hope that this comp starts moving faster, but what could I do...the forums were down for over an entire day, and there were still 8 entries to be turned in. :-S I'm sure the judges wouldn't mind the load being taken off of them, but I'd still hate to lose that many before the first assignment is even done with! *lol*

Scores will be up for "GJWTHF" tomorrow, at least by tomorrow evening, I am hoping! The scores are starting to get REALLY tight, so every little bit counts as far as judges. I am waiting on at least one more set of scores before I post anything. I don't feel like it's an accurate depiction with just two sets of scores, I don't know why. 3 or 4 seems like a much better number for judges.

I have decided that I am not playing with my Braxton family anymore until Generations comes out! :-D I want them to have an amazing wedding, and they should rightfully be the first Braxton's to have a great one ( at all. :-P) Still, there should be a new chapter, soon!

Venus is next on the list, and then I shall be working on another fairytale for Sugar and Spice! It's a secret, though!

Hint - I'll need lots of RED clothes. ;-)

Well, I guess it's time for me to go to bed since the sun is almost up!

05/16/11 - EA SUCKS!


(just in case you didn't know...:-P)

Luckily, I have had a lot to keep myself busy today. I had family over for awhile this evening, and I actually had a chance to work on putting my sims blog together.

I uploaded 4 today. I plan to slowly upload all of my sims and townie edits.

If you have a request of a sim I have already done, I will be glad to give it a higher place in my queue. :-D

Braxton sims (founders/heirs/spares) will NOT be posted in this part of the blog, they will all continue to be posted on the Braxton downloads page. I will also work on getting that up to date with Generation 2. Extra characters (if they belong to me) will be posted to my sims blog a little along.

For today, we have:

Amelie Clark

Venus York

Bridgette Brighton

Devani Singh

I'll try to get some dudes up later this week. :-P That will require me going through my old saved sims folder from before my reinstall!

On the flip side, about the forums being down - I was not able to score ANY entries for my modeling comps. This means that "GJWTHF" scores will not be posted until Tuesday, and that I will be giving an extra day to all of my "All About Me" contestants to get their entries in. I don't feel as if it would be fair to keep the date the same, considering that they couldn't even get into the forums to check the requirements or post their entries. I don't think anyone will argue with me! *lol*

Oh well, that's two entries in this blog in one day. That will make up for the one that will NOT be here tomorrow! ;-)



05/15/11 - Randomness

Gooooood morning/afternoon/evening, all of you out there in internet land! :-D

Just a little bit of randomness today!

The 7th assignment for "GJWTHF" is over. :-( It's making me sad because it's going past so quickly, but this first cycle has been WAAAAY more successful than I could have ever imagined. There will be a cycle 2, of course. I already have everything planned out. I am hoping for this one to go well, I just hope it does!

 Here is the link to the page for the entries:

And here is the link for the poll:
All votes are very much appreciated! :-)

"All About Me" is due tomorrow. There are still 12 people, I think, that have not turned in. I knew that the numbers were going to dwindle greatly, but I hope that we at least get a few of those in! I know that some of those people are like me, though, and just wait till the last minute!

To be honest, the contestants are really bringing it so far, with the entries that have been submitted. It could be that a lot of people just got scared! *lol*

Speaking of my personal entries, I have been working mostly on magazine stuff, but here are my two pics from the comps I am in:

Giant Woman, from "Sensation's Next Top Model":

(Venus York)

I was really proud of this one. I have been working on my editing skills. More often than not,  I will choose an in game shot over an edited one. I'm trying to get myself out of that. It's becoming an easy way out for me. Plus, I just had a lot of fun with it! :-)

And then we have...

Innocence, from "Exotica - Cycle 5"

(Devani Singh)

I figure that you can't get more innocent than an angel.

And then, we have the headshot that I created for my judging picture on "Queen of the Underworld."

You might not be able to tell...but that's ME! :-D I'm lovin' my pink hair, zebra makeup, and heart shaped pupils. ;-)

I am still stuck in "Braxton" mode, so I am playing them any chance that I get. *lol*

I might as well go ahead and post him here, because I posted him in the General Discussion forum last  night.

This is Blaze. He may or may not be your next Braxton heir. ;-) (But, you might as well say he is. :-P) He's a toddler right now, so he's only interested in potty training and biting the heads off of his sister's dolls. :-P

I apologize for being too selfish and control freakish to allow y'all to vote on an heir. Trust would have picked him, anyways. ;-)

Can you tell who he belongs to? I think it's obvious. But if you read the Braxton Legacy, you know I am all about some genetics! :-)

Ok, that is all for today! Happy Sunday, everyone. I'll be back for more a little later this week.

Things to look out for this week -

-I might actually try to upload sims to my sim blog! (Shocker!)

-Chapter 8 of The Braxton Legacy: Generations 3 (TENTATIVE!!!)

-Another entry on my personal blog. I am such a slacker. I think I write on there once every 6 months. ;-)

05/13/11 A Day in the Life...

Of my sim models.

You should pity them, really.

I mean, here they are...just standing around, waiting to be pushed into goofy poses:

Nothing to their name but a big white room, and a pose player.

Next up on the model list?







You are up next. Modeling, remember?

Your sister, Fiona, has been hard at work. She even went so far as to dislocate her arm for the sake of the photoshoot.

Oh, FFS.

I guess if I must...


...still working on the Braxton's!

Have a great weekend.

05/10/11 - Braxton-y Goodness!

Hello everyone!

I am dropping by today, to let you know that there has been an update in Braxton land.

Chapter 7 - Everything I Do, I Do it for You...

In this chapter, we see how Fiona and Arielle react to their new surroundings. There are tons of surprises for them though!

Also, in my little part of the sim world, I have ended Assignment 6 of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun."

The assignment was titled "Red Hot Ladies." The contestants were to depict a "Girl's Night Out" scenario.

It's time for voting now! So if you have a few extra moments, I would appreciate it!

You can find the assignment entries here, third post down:

And you can cast your votes here:

Every vote is appreciated muchly!

Also, I posted the first assignment on "All About Me!" With 33 contestants, this should be fun! I can't wait to see what the contestants come up with.

I have a few modeling assignments to work on myself, and I signed up to judge "Queen of the Underworld" by simslover740. That one should definitely be fun.

I'm still a busy little bee playing with my Braxton family, so you can expect quite a few updates back to back!

I want to get the Braxton's settled, and maybe get another chapter or two out of Venus, and then I will be working on the next installment of "Sugar and Spice." I knew when I started working on that one, that it would not be updated very regularly, due to the amount of work that actually goes into it.

As a side note:

Only 20 more days until Generations is released! Who's excited?? :-D

05/08/11 - Happy Mother's Day!

Hello, lovelies!

I dropped by to say "Happy Mother's Day" to all of you mommys out there!

My own mother is AMAZING, and I hope she knows everyday how much I appreciate everything she has ever done for me, and that I love her with all of my heart! (I know she's reading this. ;-) )

Nothing much to report on this end, I have been working like a madwoman, juggling the HUMONGOUS comp "All About Me" and also trying to get everything set up for the next chapter of  "The Braxton Legacy."

There's so much going on in that one, I hope all of my readers enjoy it, and that it ends up being worth the wait. Hopefully, I will be quicker with the chapters now. I have been playing a lot lately, which is a change for me. The reinstall really helped! :-)

Hopefully the new chapter will be up tomorrow! :-)

Have a great day, y'all!


Thursday, May 5, 2011


Well, it's been a few days! I haven't really had time to do a lot of sim related stuff, other than damage control on what EA did to my competition!

The night before last, I was minding my own business, just setting up graphics for my new competition, All About Me, when I went to my other competition, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, to basically copy the general layout of it.

Imagine my surprise when I found out that my original GJWTHF thread was GONE!

The next day, I contacted EA chat support, and what I basically found out was that someone had reported me (unwarranted), and the mods just decided to delete first, and figure everything else out later. I was then able to squeeze out of the guy that it had been moved to a "higher level of support" and they would decide "what action to take." Which, I later found out, meant that I would either be banned, or my thread would be reinstated.

Well, it's back all right - but it's completely destroyed. Not that it matters much, because I had already started a new one. I wasn't ever worried, I knew there was nothing wrong with it.

I do think that was a really childish thing to do, though. It wasn't just me that was inconvenienced by the thread deletion, there was a lot of work in that thread, and now my models have had to wait 2 extra days so far for their scores, and that really isn't fair. It all happened because someone wanted to spite me. Oh well, losers never win. :-D

With competitions in mind, the link that I posted above leads to my simself comp. I will be accepting models until the 10th, and then we will be ready for the first assignment. If you are interested...please sign up. It's going to be so much fun! :-)

The only thing of any interested that I have done lately is my Exotica entry:

It's simple, but I'm proud of it! :-) I am adoring Devani as a model - she takes excellent pictures. It's weird to think that you have some sims that are more photogenic than others, but it's true! I should have her ready to upload in a few days or so.

Other than that, I have been playing with my Braxton legacy family. It's been pretty fun, having the girls "wake up in a new house."

Sneak Preview of the day:



There's lots of interesting stuff going on with these gals. Can't wait to update with a new chapter! :-)

I think that's about it for the day!

Oh - I have had people ask me about Facebook. For reasons that I don't want to go into on here, I don't use my personal facebook anymore. If you want to add me on facebook, though - you can add me with my simming email -

...that is how you add people, right? *lol* I am hopeless with things like that!

05/02/11 - Not much to see here...

I forgot that Mondays always belong to my nephew! I spent most of my day playing Bingo, LIFE, and Cooking Mama. :-)

I spent my evening on my SNTM assignment.

The assignment title was "Couture Fashion."

Model is my Venus, of course. ;-)

Here are some of the outtakes:

(Before the great Simpocalypse of '11)

(I liked this one, but was not a fan of whatever that is that is going on with the coloring on her legs. Very strange.)

(I like this photo, but I didn't feel the dress was couture enough, and her hair is doing something weird at her left shoulder. Picky, I know. I thought she looked lovely in it, though.)

From today:

(I was going to use this one, but decided to keep trying. It just looked off to me. I felt like I could do better.)

Also in news today, I closed Assignment 5 of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

I have the new "Crowd Favorite" poll, so if you have the time, be sure to click on that link to see the photos and then click here to vote for your favorite! It really helps them out.

The scores will definitely be up on Thursday. *crosses fingers*

Also, I have another poll, voting on the next cycle of GJWTHF. You can find that here.

Right now, it's neck and neck between Simself Edition, and just random assignments like I do now.

Honestly, I think I might just split them into two competitions - keep GJWTHF like it is now, and make a one cycle simself competition for people that are interested. Thoughts?

Anyways, I still have not gotten around to uploading and showing off my new sims, but I will, don't you worry!

My current project is working on populating my completely empty legacy town.

Also on the list?

-Exotica entry
-Get sims page up and running
-Get over this sore throat.

Argh. That last one is the most important.

Have a good one, y'all!

05/01/11 - Braxton preview and the return of my favorite sim!

If I could offer any advice it would be...NEVER drink a frappe from McDonald's late at night.

The damn thing will keep you up ALL night!

I honestly thought that I was going to staple my eyelids shut before it was all over. Instead, I made a mistake. I decided to get out of bed, and try to play my game for a few minutes to see if it would make me sleep. (*lol*)

What happened instead was that I realized that my game was effed up beyond repair, and I was going to have to do a complete uninstall/reinstall. This is a very brave thing to decide to do at 5am.

Now, 15 hours, and 2 hours of sleep later, my game is finally playable!

I have decided to hold off on most of the CC (mods, pose player, and hair not included!) until I upgrade the memory on this laptop. Unless I need something specific for a competition. Speaking of - that was just another thing I didn't get to today.

So, here is the good news:

I found my most favorite TS3 sim ever that I thought was gone forever. Her backup file was nestled deep in my saves folder, and when I stuck it back in the new game...there she was! I now introduce you to Bridgette Braxton. (No relation to the Adrienne Braxtons :-P)

She was a victim of some bad CC that I downloaded, and since I had no clue what to do with bad CC, I deleted her. I was so upset...but now she's back! I plan on using her for my Generations game when it comes out. :-) She was my Late Night test sim, as you may be able to tell by her apparent vampy-ness. ;-)

I'll be adding her and Devani to my sims page once I get it up and running, but that wasn't in the cards today.

I had to get my Braxton's settled in to their new home.


Here's a sneak preview of what happens with that. ;-)

Sometimes life doesn't turn out exactly like you had planned.

Sometimes things change.

Sometimes things happen that are beyond your control.

One minute, you are the spoiled 3rd generation heiress of a highly wealthy legacy family...never lifted a finger to work in your life.

The next minute?

You're in a tiny house.

No money.

No luxuries.

No mom.

No dad.'s just you, your sister, and your will to survive.

Can you make it out there?

What happens when everything that Adrienne worked for is suddenly...



The Braxton's - Coming soon to a blog near you.

Current sim projects:

-SNTM competition entry
-Sim page, complete with Bridgette and Devani downloads
-More Braxton playage. WHEE!
