Haute Couture Cycle 2 Model! Plus a bit of reggae!


I am delighted to announce I have (finally) joined a modelling competition! The competition which caught my eye was Elasticgirl's "Haute Couture Cycle 2" on Unbound where different eras of history and fashion are explored. Hopefully I will get past the application process and be accepted as a model.

Of course I couldn't resist the opportunity to create a new model! So, behold, my new model, Lucinda Caldwell:

She has a beautiful smile :3
I was trying to move away from my more smaller, timid, maybe even cute models (although I still haven't cracked the cute look I really want) and create a more unique and stronger looking model. Hopefully I have achieved this! She is growing on me, I'll have to see how she models throughout the competition. I'll keep you posted ;).

And if you care to look at her for longer, here is a bodyshot:



P.S. I advise you to listen to "Make It Bun Dem" - it reminds me of my recent Comenius school trip to Sweden where I stayed with a very nice Swedish family and thoroughly enjoyed the country's food (and the snow :3). Why does it remind me of it? Because while driving through the snowy landscape this song was played extremely loudly with the bass turned all the way up - magic :')!

That is all for now - tata!

Updates: Sensation, University Life and my Dead-Diamond Legacy

This post is really just of updates and to let you know I am still here!!

My life has been very busy recently with preliminatory exams and also real exams :'). I have been in hardly any competitions - pretty sure my last was "Little Miss Cutie" hosted by Hox but I would love to enter some again soon!

I'm still enjoying working at Sensation Magazine and am excited to tell you Issue 25 was released this morning: click here to read!


I've recently re-discovered my passion for building houses, and am thinking about posting some up for download. I'm currently creating a modern/oriental themed house but it is still very much a work in progress. I may post pictures once it is complete!

I only found about Sims 3 University Life about a month ago and after watching the trailer, reading about it and watching The Lazy Game Reviewer's review on Youtube - I really want it! I highly recommend Lazy Game Reviews; they are hilarious and informative. Just pretty awesome in general.

Don't know if anyone has noticed :'), but The Diamond Legacy has kinda been abandoned. I may start it up again but with a much more laid back, casual, random and (hopefully) humorous style of writing. Probably me being the narrator and not the sim. We shall see :).

I have also been considering wiping out all my CC and starting from scratch as I have way too much which is causing my game to lag - I don't use half of it anyway!

Well that's all for now, but I hope to once again post more often!

Thanks for reading,

Back from Sardinia


I am now back from Sardinia. You never knew I went? Well, now you do :). I arrived home on Sunday night. I've had a terrible cold though so please excuse me for posting so late!


I was met with a lovely surprise when I returned: I won Little Miss Cutie hosted by Hoxha! It was extremely close; only half a point between 1st and 2nd!

Hoxha generously gifted me two items from my Store wish list; Pumped Up Pom Pom Hat and Over the Shoulder Braid. I can't wait to use them!

She also made me a gorgeous signature:

Thank you Hoxha!

Sims 3 Seasons: Aliens

(Poll at the bottom - it would make me so happy if you voted in it :3)

A couple of days ago, The Sims 3 posted a fairly in-depth look at aliens in The Sims 3 Seasons on their blog! I just read it now and my excitement for Seasons has grown considerably!

I was expecting just your average green guy that abducts people, dissects their brain and that would be it. But they can do much more - you can even play as an alien. How cool is that?! You can terrorise the town with your weird UFO fire laser beams and watch sims run around like ants under a magnifying glass on a sunny day.

Told you so.

Gangnam Style: SMS Tone - Link fixed!

"Gangnam Style": a Korean neologism mainly associated with upscale fashion and lavish lifestyle associated with trendsetters in Seoul’s Gangnam district (강남), which is considered the most affluent part of the metropolitan area. In colloquial usage, it is comparable to the English slang terms “swag” or “yolo”. 

- According to Urban Dictionary


(Scroll down to big, blue highlighted text for SMS tone!!)

If you haven't yet heard of the craze that has taken over the world, "Gangnam Style" by PSY, I am shocked. I don't think there is anyway you couldn't know about it!

  • It comes up as the first suggestion on Google after typing only "gan", before some guy called "Gandhi" - whoever that is...*
  • It holds the Guinness World Record for "most liked" video in Youtube history with likes (at time of writing).
  • The official video has over 300,000,000 views on Youtube after only 12 weeks since it was uploaded.

Why am I talking about Gangnam Style on a sims blog?

I'll tell you why.

Little Miss Cutie: Assignment 3

After Sensation closing, I decided to get back into some modelling competitions because I miss them!

I'm only in one at the moment: "Little Miss Cutie" (cycle 1) hosted by Hoxha! You can find her blog here. I recommend it, she just uploaded her beautiful Asian model Mae Ling.


I just handed in my third assignment which was a toy advertisement:
