Hi guys,

Today, I’m posting a cute little summery photoshoot because I’m happy. I went to my oral maths exam today and passed with a top grade. The weather is beautiful, I’m going out to dinner with boyfriend tonight, and life is great πŸ™‚ I thought I would share a little of my summery happiness, then, in the form of a cute little shoot with Carlo and Vittoria – because I like taking pictures of their beautiful faces, and I don’t want to post pics of Gina and her love interest… yet.

A few notes about this shoot: It’s hard to summery-fy Carlo. I considered putting him in shorts or something, but the thought is laughable. He wouldn’t be caught dead in something so casual. Ever. So, at least he has bare feet? The little picnic scene is unlikely for him, too – eating outside? On the ground?! He’s not an outdoorsy kind of person, apart from a little gardening. But he would force himself to suffer it when it’s for Vittoria. So, those are my two cents on what’s going on here, and the rest I leave up to the pictures to tell.

I hope you guys liked the pictures and that you’re all having beautiful, sunny days as I am today. I’ll be back with some sneaky-peeky stuff this Saturday, though I’m not quite sure what.

Until then, lots of love to you all,

Congratulations on your exam! You deserved it! Have fun with your boyfriend. To me this summer weather is so hot it is exhausting, but glad it isn’t for you πŸ˜›
It was another beautiful photoshoot. You’re so good with them πŸ™‚

    Thank you Jowita <3 Admittedly, today we had 28 degrees celsius and that's a little too hot for me as well, though I just generally like sun and blue skies πŸ˜€
    And thank you again <3

Congratulations on your exam — that’s amazing!! I might have to ask you math questions sometime lol. also, your pictures look so warm and cozy! if I can ever figure out reshade, I’ll have to download it. Carlo + Vittoria = one of my favorite sims couples <3 I love seeing these extra photos!

    *one of my favorite couples ever (not just sims) <– important clarification! :'D

    If you ever try it out and need help with ReShade, you can just hit me up. It can be a little finicky to set up, I think, but well worth it πŸ™‚

Glad to hear your exam went well 😊 congrats! I do agree it’d be hard to imagine Carlo in shorts πŸ˜‚ These photos are so warm and lovely~ thanks for sharing, love seeing these two together ❀️

    NotJustaBook · May 30, 2018 at 6:40 pm

    Thank you! So relieved that it’s over and went well πŸ˜€
    I know, right? I just don’t think it’s possible πŸ˜› Maybe he would roll up his trousers… maybe? πŸ˜›
    I’m really glad you like them. It’s so lovely to be taking a cute shoot of them just hanging out and being happy πŸ™‚

Woot!! Congratulations on your exam! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ I hope you have a great evening with your boyfriend, you deserve it! πŸ˜€
Those pictures are stunning, so relaxed and summery <3 And Carlo is so handsome *swoons* 😍 I loved this!

    NotJustaBook · May 30, 2018 at 6:42 pm

    Thank you, friend <3 I've had such a lovely time today – a cherry on top on a great day πŸ™‚
    I have a very, very hard time not taking pictures of Carlo just because of how stupidly handsome he always is! πŸ˜› And since it's just warm and sunny and lovely here, I just had to make it summer themed πŸ˜€ <3 So glad you liked it!

And my send button finger draws quicker than my shadow – Lucky luke style… Congrats to passing your oral maths exam! And with top grades! Yay! I bet you had a nice evening with your boyfriend… πŸ˜‰

    Ha, ha you’re a ninja! πŸ˜€
    Thank you very much! I had a really great time with boyfriend for sure! πŸ™‚ <3

Your photo shoots are to die for. I love them. 😁😁
You are right. I couldn’t picture Carlo in shorts either.
And congrats on passing your exams!!!!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰
Math is hard enough, but I have never heard of a math test you had to take orally. What kind of math was it?

    NotJustaBook · June 1, 2018 at 8:32 am

    Thank you so much <3 You're too kind! <3
    No, you don't do oral maths exams in the states? It's general maths, really – it's gymnasium (same as high school, pretty much). Basically, you prepare 20-25 presentations on different topics and on the day you draw one and present it. I got linear functions, which I was very happy with! πŸ™‚ I'm really glad it's over, because it was truly nerve wracking.

      socallucyfan · June 1, 2018 at 5:47 pm

      All of the math tests that I have taken have been written.
      I am so happy that you did well. I know you had been stressing over this for a while. Now you can relax. At least until next year.

Congratulations on the maths exam!
I just imagined Carlo in shorts and it was quite unpleasant, LOL.
Such a beautiful photoshoot, I really like the theme of red and green. They look so relaxed, I wish I was there ;___;

    NotJustaBook · June 3, 2018 at 11:56 am

    Thank you! <3
    I know, right?! He would be so uncomfortable to be so dressed down – I just couldn't do it to him.
    Thank you <3 I've always dressed Vittoria in green, as I've mentioned, and though Carlo doesn't really dress in red, I've always thought of him in terms of deep, romantic reds – a good contrast with the green πŸ™‚ I'm glad you liked it! <3

I’m loving these pics! The poses are really cool, too. <3
