After years of talking about it and planning my face off, I finally took the plunge and got myself an official website. And then I proceeded to celebrate everywhere!

Favorite Pinterest Board

Without a doubt, my Nail Art Pinterest Board sees the most activity. Everyone I follow seems to have one of these, so the options are endless. One day, I even plan to do some of these!

Favorite Song

A little while back, I watched “Whatever Happened, Miss Simone?” on Netflix and ever since, our whole house has been a little obsessed with the song “Ain’t Got No – I Got Life” by Nina Simone.

Along with all the other “launching” I’ve done over the last week or so, I also re-did/updated my Facebook page. And shared a screenshot from my current game of #TheSims4.

Favorite Tweet

The older three kids spent a month at their Dad’s. The day we went to pick them up, we woke up early and we were all beyond excited. It had been just a few days too long!

Favorite Instagram Photo

We stopped for ice cream when we went to pick up the kids and the boys played on this sheep statue. Carter’s face is all unhappy looking because the metal was hot.

Favorite Youtube Video

I found Alaska Thunderfuck through Willam Belli and while I haven’t watched more than a couple videos, this one song (and the video for it) has been on my mind all week!

In total, the Sandy Run Spa has 4 women’s and 4 men’s washrooms. On the main floor, there are toilets and baths separated by a shower room. On the top floor, there are smaller washrooms with just toilets and lockers (every toilet is accompanied by a sink).

Probably the best feature of the Sandy Run Spa is the rooftop patio and pool. The pool is huge and beautifully decorated, you can get a hand and/or foot massage or meditate next to it and get your drink on while overlooking Newcrest.

One thing you’ll notice about a great many of my builds on The Sims 4, and especially in Newcrest, is that I have a serious obsession with symmetry. The Sandy Run Spa is a perfect example of this symmetry. It’s something I keep trying to move away from and keep ending back up at.

You can find the Sandy Run Spa on The Sims 4 Gallery. I invite you to download it and place it in your own worlds. If you end up changing things up, I’d love to see what you come up, so please post links to your changes in the comments below. And while you’re at it, be sure to follow me by searching for the Origin ID: ValerieRayne13.

Finally, look forward to more posts on my builds in Newcrest including the Cookout Lookout Lounge, the Cypress Hill Library and the Fern Park MoMA.
