AC:NL House Tour - Winter ❄

Since it's Winter in Valyria, I decided to change up my house. I love Winter, it's my favorite season! So what better way to show my love, than to redecorate with some festive furniture?

Outside of my home while it is snowing :3

AC:NL Winter in Valyria ❄

Winter is my favorite time of the year, so I was more than excited for it in Animal Crossing: New Leaf! Since I don't live in an area where it snows, I was happy to enjoy a "White Christmas" in-game ♥

The Roost Café & T&T Emporium look lovely in the snow

Igloo campsite & an old friend moves in, ready for Winter :3

♦ Midnight Hollow CAS Info

I decided to write up a little blog post letting you know where the different hair & clothing the sims from my new series are sporting!

♦ Updated Some Thumbnails

I've been meaning to update my thumbnails ever since I changed the style for Island Paradise, so I finally sat down & did it. Just your typical sims with the same thumbnail backgrounds I had before (the towns they're in). I only changed the ones I could get the sims for, so Lucky Palms, Showtime, & Pets weren't able to be changed. I had to use a "green screen" backdrop for them, different colors for each so I could blend it into the background better, but I think they turned out great. Click on them for a larger view & enjoy ♥

♦ TS3 Pregnant Loop Glitch: Fixed

As some of you know, I ran into thee strangest glitch where my sim gives birth nonstop (view it here at 8:30). Luckily I've found a solution after a few hours of trying out different methods. It ended up being super simple :)

Step 1: Exit the game, either manually or in between births. You will lose any progress you didn't save.
Step 2: This might be optional, but I did it: Clear all of your caches & the delete everything in the DCBackup folder.
Step 3: Load the game & open the save with the glitch.
Step 4: Go into Edit Town & change your Active Family to another random one.
Step 5: Wait until the pregnant sim has finished giving birth & finally has the baby.
Step 6: Go into Edit Town once more & change the Active Family back to the original one, then start playing.
Step 7: Change the child's name (City Hall) & traits (testingcheatsenabled true) if you'd like, & enjoy! :D

AC:NL First House Tour

I have been playing New Leaf for almost a couple of months now, about an hour everyday. Ryan & I go to malls / busy places & StreetPass with a lot of people, so that's usually where I get new items for my sets. Ryan doesn't play Animal Crossing, but I'm trying to convince him to haha :3

Here's my house so far, it is still a work in progress. I have 50,000+ HHA points at the moment though, which is insane :o Enjoy! ♥

Skype & Why I Don't Use It

Recently I've been getting invited to Skype calls or have been asked to add people on Skype, so I thought I'd address this in some permanent way. I felt a blog post would be best, that way I can refer to it in the future.

When asked about Skype, unfortunately I have to decline. It's not that I don't like any of you, I promise! I just don't feel comfortable communicating via Skype to people I don't really know. To be honest, I don't actually talk to family & friends on the phone. I'm also ridiculously shy in real life, which I'm sure a lot of people can vouch for. It's probably my anxiety or something, but sadly it just stresses me out.

You may not understand & think it's "dumb" of me to feel this way, but you have to realize that not everyone is wired the same. I simply cannot help it.

I might overcome this awkward feeling in the future, but for now I'd rather just stay a little more sane, & communicate through my normal social networks <3 Please try not to take it personally, it really is just me, not you :)

♦ Photos from The Sims 3 Community Day

I'm a little late making this blog post. It completely slipped my mind that I wanted to put up a post with the photos I took from TS3 Community Day, but here they are! I only took a few, & they're all in the video below, along with some others. The first two are a tad grainy, because they were taken with my old iPhone. The third was taken at night, so no avoiding it, especially since I don't know how to successfully adjust the manual settings on my DSLR for nighttime just yet haha. The last came out so lovely though, definitely my favorite! Click on them to view the full size, & I hope you enjoy them :D

♦ The Sims 3 errors, issues, etc.

Some of you have been asking me about your PC &/or laptop's issues or TS3 game play problems, I sincerely apologize, but I am not an expert. Unfortunately, I don't know much else besides what I read on Google, or find on their forums. I usually only play the game & fix the problems I encounter on my own, but here is how I always get an answer when I need one:
  • First things first, Google search your error code or problems, leaving out small words like "the, and, it.." etc. Go through at least the first 10 links before ditching that method & moving on.
  • If that doesn't work, your best bet is to search on their forums here, or more specifically here. If you don't find your answer, start your own thread, questions get answered pretty quickly.
  • Contacting EA will also help, but the forums are thee fastest way, & there are a lot of people there to answer all of your questions.
  • You should also check the game requirements with your PC's or laptop's specs here. The game is a little demanding, & sometimes it doesn't work properly (if at all) on older systems.
Again, I am very sorry I'm not much help in this area. I do hope this post has made it a lot easier in your search to fix your game! Also, I get all my computer info from my grandpa, so I'm not computer savvy either. I know...I'm a terrible "gamer" haha.

Photos #1

I kind of want to do these every once in a while, sort of like my "Scenery from 2012 ♥" blog post I did not too long ago. It'll just be some photos I feel like sharing :D

My grandparents bought me a new lens as an early birthday present, so I've been taking tons of pictures. The lens is a Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX & is mainly used for taking photos in low-light situations. It also gives THEE PERFECT bokeh effect.
Look at those lovely flames! Woah.

Scenery from 2012 ♥

This year I found out about Instagram and went wild with random photos. For this post, I decided to choose my favorite scenery shots straight from my Instagram feed, which you may have also seen if you follow my Twitter. They're all the same square shape (which I adore for some reason) & filtered using the app's own filters, making them extra lovely. I have always been into photography, but the app has made this hobby of mine a lot more fun! Click each photo for a closer look:
