Good Bye Message - Quitting Sims

hi guys. im so sorry i've disappeared. im having a really rough time in RL. i just found out i'm pregnant...with twins. and im only 19, so you could probably imagine the toll it's taking on me. the only things i can really focus on right now is working as much as possible before the boys come, since i'm single and doing this completely on my own. my parents have practically disowned me and my life is turned completely upside down right now so i'm sorry to say, that i can not continue with either Flux magazine or this competition. i am so sorry. you all did amazing throughout the flux competition and i feel really bad that i can't complete your scores. this is the first time i've been able to get onto my computer in two weeks, and even then, i only have a few minutes before i have to head to bed so i can be up in time for work tomorrow.

@PK: you were an amazing judge and im going to really miss working with you! if you'd like to post your scores, and make this round the finale, please feel free to. these girls deserve final results and, like i said, i'm completely torn up that i can't deliver them.

@Alix: i am so sorry i havent been able to get back to you through email, but i just don't have the time or energy or mental capacity to finish what i started with the magazine. please, if you'd like to continue on with flux magazine, do so! i would rather the name live on with your amazing leadership skills then see it disappear just because i had to. if not, that's okay too. but you've been an amazing friend and co-worker and thread bumper.

@Rose: oh rose, you have been my sims bff since the day we started talking in my first cycle of flux. you have grown SO much since that first competition and i'm so proud of you. i'm so sorry that i can't continue on with this, even though i told you i would no matter what. i hope you get all that you deserve in your future competitions and in your RL! i hope you email me from time to time letting me know how you are. it's amazing how close you can get to someone, even when you've never met in person and live in separate countries. 

@NSF Fans: you have all been amazing and  i feel terrible that i can't complete the story for you guys. Maybe someday, I can come back to it and i apologize to those who have been fans since day 1 and won't get to see how the story ends. 

@Flux Magazine Team: we have been like a family since most of you were hired and im going to miss all of you like crazy. Thank you all so much for making Flux what it became. I couldn't have done it without you.

@Kween: i'm sorry you had to deal with so much drama and i hope that someday, everyone can move past it so you can continue to do what you love most. good luck in the future and thanks for all of the talks on MSN! it was always nice getting to vent to you, you are always so full of great advice and ideas! Keep up your amazingness. I will miss you!!!

Strike a Pose Assignment 5

I did really well in the previous assignment. I tied for SECOND place! Wooooot! I think I finally found my inspiration in this competition. For this week, we had to portray the wizard of oz. I, of course, wanted to take this to a high fashion level. Here was my entry:

The Wizard of Oz is a classic and one of Cheyanne's personal favorites, so when she found out that she was to portray it in this week's assignment, Cheyanne was ecstatic! Since Cheyanne is a high fashion model, she wanted to put a high fashion spin on the assignment and portray an adaptation of the amazing movie. With her co-stars, Cheyanne was very proud of the outcome and had a ton of fun on set!

Sims Next Top Model Assignment 4

The scores for the previous assignment were pretty even...I ended up tying with 4 other competitors. I didn't do the greatest, but I still made it through to the next round. For this assignment, we were all assigned a historical landmark from around the world in which we needed to pose for. We had to dress in appropriate attire according to our historical landmark as well. I was assigned the Colosseum, an ancient Roman building that today is a main tourist attraction and incredibly run down. Here was my entry:

Trying to get into the ancient Roman character was not an easy task for Cheyanne this week, but being able to pose at the historical landmark, the Colosseum, was an amazing experience. Even in it's run down state, it's an amazing piece of architecture and Cheyanne couldn't get enough of it.

Strike-a-Pose Assignment 4

I'm finding it very difficult to find my inspiration in this competition...and it's becoming apparent that my entries REALLY aren't that good...I mean, I rarely get negative feedback on here for my pictures that I post, but for just about every strike-a-pose assignment I post, at least 2 people select the negative feedback thing at the bottom of the post =( This has happened once before...but I regained my inspiration by assignment 3 or 4 back when I competed in piapia's competition Superior Modeling. Anyways, I scored VERY low in the wedding assignment, which was more than expected. I thought for sure I would be eliminated, but I BARELY made it. For this assignment, we had to pose with animals. Here was my entry:

Cheyanne is a huge animal lover, and when she was told her next photoshoot took place at the zoo, she was so excited! Cheyanne is obsessed with wild cats, and instantly knew that she wanted to pose in the wild cat reserve. She got right in there with the felines, posing closely with the surprisingly tame leopards.

Strike-A-Pose Assignment 3

I came in 5th place for assignment 2, which isn't bad considering I did terribly in assignment 1. For the next assignment, we had to submit 2 of our models enjoying a bachelorette party and one of our model on their wedding day. here's my entry:

Cheyanne was super excited to marry her high school sweetheart, Addison Storm, but Cheyanne is a party animal and was even more excited to have one last chance to party single with her girls for her bachelerette party. Her closest girlfriends took her out to one of the hottest male strip clubs in town and she even got to dance with one of the strippers! It was a blast. But, when the wedding came around, Cheyanne could hardly contain her excitement. She couldn't wait to marry the man of her dreams, and even got a tad impatient when she was waiting for her bridesmaids to go down the isle before her.

Strike-a-Pose Assignment 2

I did NOT do very well in assignment 1. I scored very near the bottom half of the contestants, which hasn't happened to me in a very long time. The judges said they liked my entry, and my chosen outfit, but my background didn't feel very much like a Hot Topic clothing store, which sucks, considering I wasn't trying to make it into a Hot Topic clothing store. Oh well. I just need to step up my game. For this next assignment, we had to show what our model would do if they were a superstar and explain who they use as their inspiration. For every assignment, we need to hand in our entry AND a headshot. Here was my entry:

Cheyanne's mother was a supermodel back in her younger days, and Cheyanne always aspired to be just like her. When Cheyanne first started out her career, her mother gave her some advice that always stuck with her - once you're famous, no matter where you go, people will photograph you so the best thing you can do is embrace it. Always dress your best and when the camera's come out, never get caught doing something you wouldn't want your fans to see. With that being said, Cheyanne never leaves the house if she isn't feeling like a model in what she's wearing, and when she notices the cameras around her, she will pose rather than let the camera's catch her in an awkward situation.

NSF Fans Please Read

Hey fans.

First of all, I want to apologize for the amount of time it's taking me to get the 30th chapter of Never Say Forever out. I've been extremely busy on both the Sims and in RL and am struggling to find a proper balance. I'm getting pretty burnt out and the last thing on my mind right now is NSF.

In real life, I recently went through a major lifestyle change. I broke up with the man I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with and had to give up my puppy. I lost one of my jobs, and got a promotion at another. Not to mention, since I'm 19 and still haven't gotten enough credits to graduate high school, I have my education to consider as well. Also, I'm writing a book in RL in hopes that someday it will be published, as being a writer is something I've always dreamed about.

On Sims, I have my magazine, the competitions I compete in and the competitions I host. I hope you all understand.

NSF is NOT cancelled, nor will I ever disappear from it. Once I find the balance in my life that I need, I will continue it.

Strike-A-Pose Assignment 1

I made the top 12!! WHOOOP. For the first assignment, we were assigned a clothing boutique in which we had to portray their clothing with 2 shots - a headshot and a bodyshot. This is a non-editing competition. We are only allowed to edit lighting. It's really tough to not touch up these pictures, but oh well. My assigned clothing store was Hot Topic and this was my entry:

Cheyanne was a little skeptical about the store she was assigned when assignments were first given out. She had never shopped at Hot Topic before and was afraid she wouldn't be able to give it her best. After she did her research, she fell in love with the unique clothing and upbeat style that Hot Topic had to offer. Inspiration came flooding in and Cheyanne decided to pose in a clothing boutique as a mannequin to show off the clothing.
