Sharing an Apple

We all know 50L Fridays are everyones favorites. I made my way through most of the kids list, but then noticed my money running out. I looked outside and noticed it was a beautiful day.

Since I just got back from shopping, I decided to put on one of my new outfits and go for a walk. The striped top, cute shorts underneath, bracelets, and matching sandals is a cute outfit for anything.

I grab an apple and head out into the woods. After awhile the sky was starting to change color and the richness of reds were reflecting on the water. Then I heard something... a deer! O.o I grabbed my apple and walked slowly closer to him. Showing my apple was a gift for him. Reaching my arms out further, I got right up to the buck, who I decided to name Ramsay. We starred at each other for awhile but then I gave him my big smile and well that melts everyones heart. :) Ramsay sniffed the apple and took it from my hands and began to eat it. I didn't want to disturb Ramsay any longer, so I stepped away and started to head back home before it got too late.

Wow what a day! I hope to return to Ramsay again and show my friends. I'll make sure to bring a couple apples next time for him, in case he has a girlfriend.

Happy 50L Friday - Enjoy your weekend - My Blog Time Off! See you Monday!!!

Blast From The Past: Christmas Tree

It's just a fun blog day. You get to see my life before I started this. This is to show you, that I've always been a little mischief monkey!

Back in December, I had parents who thought that putting a sign up saying... "No Lowi or Corey 10 yards from the gifts (Santa's Watching)" would keep me away. Did I listen? ... NO WAY!!!

All the sign did for me, was to make sure I did a little extra than just go 10 yards from it! Penny was suppose to be guarding it too. But I got Penny peeing the floor next to my beagle avatar became a blackmail picture if she told.

As you can see, I did a lots of different naughty things. Like kicking the sign over, shaking a present, praying so I can get on the good list somehow, sneaking under the tree, building a ladder to climb to the top, and even being the angel that I am. See proof... I am an angel... O.o Did I fool anyone???

Well enjoy the "Blast From the Past" day! Sorry for being a bit late on this.

::: Sanu ::: Designer Spotlight

Cute cupcakes, sushi, butterflies, lollipops, and gummy worms... what do they have in common? They're all things you can find at Sanu. I found this store when I was looking for a cute butterfly for my nose, to match my ladybug one I wear. Then I started to notice, they have a lot of cute things that kids enjoy.

Owner, Sanura Sakai, makes items ranging from cupcakes, mouth attachments, shoes, skins, skyboxes, textures, and more. You can fish here too and try to catch her custom fish. Also, I was very happy that she took the time to answer my questions.
✦ ✧ ✦ ✧ ✦ ✧ ✦ ✧ ✦ ✧ ✦ ✧ ✦ ✧ ✦ ✧
When did you start your business?
I started up in October 2008. The first location was a tiny little 10 prim stall for something like 50l per week.

How did you name your business?
It was hard coming up with a name... I had a lot of ideas. It really came down to the name a few friends frequently called me to seal the deal: whereas other names would all probably be as effective as this one, I felt that Sanu was concise, to the point, gave me a real emotional connection to it and a license to be true to my own personality. The name of the store -is- 'Sanura Sakai', just presented a little shorter!

If you can remember, what is the first thing you made? If so, do you still sell it?
The first thing I made for the store I do still sell: The 'Inspired Collar' was the first item ever to make it up for sale. I will admit, it is due for a reworking soon due to the change in shine settings as the viewers have progressed. Shine over a flat coloured texture used to produce a beautiful metallic effect - I took it as a wonderful challenge to create gorgeous jewelry which relied primarily on those shine settings. The more recent viewers, however, produce a more flat effect.

Whats the most popular item?
I honestly couldn't say... I tend to find that things trend up and down, depending on seasonal demand, word of mouth, events, and so forth. If I had to say what I think the most popular group of items in my store are, I'd have to say that the random vendors are a favourite. The random vendors all contain a range of great items at fairly low cost, perfect for yourself or for giving to friends as gifts. It's also great fun to try to collect all the colours and variations!

Whats your favorite thing you've made?
My Tiniest Bunnehs. It is hard to pick just one favourite, because I love every single thing that I sell. I wouldn't sell it if I didn't! However, simple though they are, I really do love the tiniest bunnehs so so much. Not only are they absolutely adorable (I'm bias, I know) but I see them as a fun and very original concept. They were also done originally just as a personal challenge: to see if I could fit a whole scene into someone's mouth. The 'Rainstorm' Tiniest Bunneh was the first, in case you were curious, but many more have been produced since then - a lot of which are not for sale, but have been available as raffle picks reward prizes in the past.

Whats the next thing on your to do list?
I have a constant stream of things that I want to create, so I'm not entirely sure which one will be the next to make it into the store! I'll likely be doing some more skins fairly soon, I have some more food items almost ready to go, and a lot of other little bits and pieces. What is next on the list right this second though? Inventory sorting... the bane of my existence.

Ugly Betty Meets Ugly Lowi

::: Fun Fashion Day :::

Prom 2010, here I come!

I thought I'd have fun and look like I was going to a 80's prom night. I ended up looking a bit like Ugly Betty with the glasses and braces. So its a fun mixture of both. The dress has that poofy shoulder that many would freak out to see me with. I ended up having to tweak it to be more kid friendly, with a purple shirt underneath. Finishing up the prom look with a beautiful lily hand corsage.

Now just waiting for a date and the limo to show up.

Dress: :WhoNose:
Hair: Magika
Braces: PrettiFuL
Glasses: HOC
Necklace: {Violet Voltaire}
Lily Hand Corsage : (CREAMSHOP)

Ruffus: The Cutest Bunny EVER!!!

This has nothing to do with SL, but I just have to share this picture with everyone. OMG!!! He's sooo cute! I was showing my friend on yahoo, and they just fell in LOVE with him.

Its been established that his name is Ruffus.

My friend talking about Ruffus:
(keeps annoyamous for own protection HAHA!)

➩ I wanna squish him and loves him
➩ Sings... you are my ruffus oh my lil ruffus and yous are soo cuttuss
➩ You are my ruffus, my sweet lil ruffus, you make me happy whens skies are grey
➩ He brings sunshine to my life
➩ He is my ruffus, my lil ruuufffus

Argh!!! Your Booty Shivers Me Timber!!!

Wow what a fun place I found. I got to be a pirate! ARGH!

I found a great family place, where its just an awesome atmosphere! The sim has a pretty look to the background. Its surrounded with mountains and a lake all around.

What this place provides is:

◀ Mini Golf
◀ Balloon Rides
◀ Arcade
◀ Pirate Ship - rotates 360!

The pirate ship was my favorite. It reminds me of those fun carnival rides! Plus, I got to dress up as a pirate! Arrrrgghh!!!

✔ Location: Lil's Mini Golf, Arcade & Aquatic Park
✔ Pirate Sword, Newspaper Hat, & Eye Patch: Boof
✔ Pirate Sword Pose: Mojo Skytower

This is Me!

These are my animals. Yes a lot! I'm wearing all but 2. The beagle, Penny, and the sabertooth tiger, Cringer. Those two are my favorite and Lou, the bunny.

Point of this blog!

My name is Lowi Foxtrot. I'm your average SL kid, but with a little extra mischief.

Though, I find myself standing around looking at the same walls day after day. If I'm not working at the awesome babydolls, I really don't have anything else to do. So I figure I'd start a blog to get me out of those fimiliar walls and see whats really out there.

It's not a blog just dedicated just to fashion, but it'll will be filled with my journey around SL. I'll be searching for shops, friends, beautiful sims, mischief things, and well anything. I can't wait to get in trouble and blog about everything, I mean... be a good kid!

Can't wait to get this journey started! I hope to maybe run into some of you along the way!
