Busy busy busy

I really should be in bed but I'm a little too bouncy at the moment since I had a fabulous night. I know I did say I was trying to post every day, but I actually have been quite busy recently.

The main part of what's keeping me occupied is scouting furniture locations. Yes, still!! I ended up just typing "Couch" into my inventory and throwing down several couches I had.

Lots of furniture


The bad thing? [Well, besides the crazy amount of bad quality furniture I possess] I found one that I liked, so I thought "Oh victory is mine! I'll go to the store and get matching stuff." No success. The store is closed. Dammit!

Luckily for me, the Home & Garden Expo is this week. I went out there to play around and even found things here and there that I liked. I bought a bunch of stuff from Second Spaces, which I had heard of before but had never seen any of the items. I got a precious pink vanity from Second Spaces from their RFL vendor. So way to go! I helped charity AND I got something I love. My big issue is that I don't know how to mix and match furniture so it looks like it works. Decorating fail. But I'm trying.

The other part of my whole busy thing is that I've been setting up the new WTFug Headquarters location.

New WTFug HQ Location


We were on one sim, but some things changed and now we're happily on the Conatus sim, which belongs to my friend Noel. I'm telling you guys, that place is going to be AMAZING. Stores are moving in this week, there's going to be live music I think at least 3 nights a week, it's just awesome!! I'll even be out there hosting a party every other Tuesday! Nardcotix, Phoenix Rising, Cheap Love Song, and several others are scheduled to move in this week, which makes me weep for what's going to be the loss of my $L. LOL! There are still stores open too, so if you're looking for a satellite store or just store space in general, you've GOT to go over there. We were already out there tonight shopping in one of the stores that moved in! :-D

Oh, so HQ! Sorry, got distracted thinking about all the shopping I'm going to be doing out there. Some people have asked "Ali, why a HQ?" Why not? :-p Actually, once things settle down, I have some plans. Like....WTFug Approved stores, style consultants, fun free gifts, parties, and just general fun and help. Contrary to what some people think, we're not just about mocking outfits. We DO want to help. That tutorial I did for tinting prim feet has seriously been popular and I've gotten many IMs from people thanking me, which is awesome. :-D I wish I could take credit for the entire thing, but the tip came from Claire Harford, via Honey Hoffman of Virtual Freebies. But I put pictures to it. LOL I want to do more things like that. Yeah, we're still going to giggle over bad fashion. That's the basis of the blog and we're popular for that. But in between, I want to help too. :)

Feel free to stop by HQ. It's mostly set up right now, and we have fun hanging out there in the evenings, and I'm in and out all day. I even have a scale out there so you can measure yourself, and some posestands. Oh! And we even have fishing out our backdoor too! I'm going to see about getting us some custom fishies. :-D I'm just so incredibly excited about it, and I don't think anyone wants to hear me ramble about it anymore. LOL! My poor friends. They humor me so.

Ok, my eyes are starting to glaze over, so I'm off to bed. :)

Elle Kirschner of Second Spaces also writes a great blog of furniture reviews. I love it. You might find some inspiration and/or good ideas there too. http://secondspaces.wordpress.com/
