Visiting With My Sims - Jaime and Lola Cruz

First, as I've said, Jaime is my all time favorite Sim, primarily due to the nostalgia that he's the first child to ever have been born in my original Sims 1 game (I've made sure that this Jaime started with the exact same stats (I did this for all six characters I ported over), etc.).

I suggest starting with Lola's proposal to Jaime. Then, look at The house I built for them and the finished product (with landscaping)

Recently, I've decided that Lola should take a plunge into owning her own business.

I've had a custom career for Lola for a while as a beautician, so it was only natural that she would open one of the new beauty salons in the newest expansion (Open For Business).

I found the "Delicate Petal Salon" by NaelisSim at The Sims Resource. Add to that all of the wonderful salon objects I found from Shannanigan also at The Sims Resource.

Here's the exterior shot of the lovely Delicate Petal Salon, freshly open for business.

At the cash register area, there is also perfume available for purchase.

There are plenty of fashion magazines for the ladies to browse through to choose hairstyles, but there are also a nice selection of gossip mags to read while getting their hair dry (unfortunately, these are just chairs and not usable objects, but, still add lots of great atmosphere to the place).

There are four salon chairs to service customers with makeovers. Thirsty customers are welcome to use the ice-cold water cooler as well as the coffee maker by the mirrors.

There's also a photo booth by the mirrors, so happy clients can immortalize their new looks!

Here, Lola makes over one of her first clients, one of the townies...

A satisfied customer!

Coming soon:

Ooh, that's a pretty salon! I haven't tried a beauty parlor business yet, but now I want to. The makeover thing looks fun. Do they ever get some really disasterous ones?

I love reading your Sim stories.

The only other businesses I'm currently running:

a toy store run by Pascal.

a flower shop run by Kayla (though it'll be a while before you see that one: her last name begins with J).

My favorite sites are:

The Sims Resource. They are a pay site, but they always have tons of free stuff available and they rotate the free stuff on, I think, a monthly basis. (I pay 'cause this site is awesome and worth it).

The Sims Showcase. They haven't updated in a couple of weeks, but USUALLY a good site to visit every couple of days for what's out there (they have pictures and links to all the hottest downloads available).

Neighborhood 99. I've been a member of Neighborhood 99 for YEARS. It's free to join. It's a discussion group. I couldn't live without: Hot Downloads, Where Did I Find, Where Can I Get? (half the time, I don't know I want something until someone ELSE is looking for it, too) and Problems (the FIRST place to check when you have any kind of problem with the game).

Finally, I also LOVE Mod The Sims 2. It's also free to join. You can get so many neat things here: custom careers, university majors, food, Create-A-Sims screens (though I've learned how to make my own), the normal downloads like clothing, sims, furniture, etc. They also have neat "mods" (perhaps the "No Autonomous ___" type which will suppress your sims from doing certain actions (whatever is in the blank) without being directed to first). Some of the stuff here is being "tested", so be sure to read the entries carefully before downloading!
