There's all sorts of crazy, ugly, nasty creatures creeping about this week, and we aren't talking about the admins...
This week is all about monsters. Oh and the small matter of an impending apocalypse! Nothing major then!
First of all, you have the opportunity to create your own monster. Just like Frankenstein. And, as we all know, that ended well for all involved...
Simply acquire the Lab Table with the backpack on it and start feeding what's inside! The reward will be something you've never seen before in Smeet. Let's just say: Austin Powers' nemesis Dr. Evil had one of these too!
Next up, we have loads and loads of costumes for you. Release the beast inside, and get browsing in the Shop!
Remember not to dress up too realistically though, or we could end up with a Lord of the Flies situation. Awkwaaaard.
And the crowning glory this week...The Apocalyptic Refuge!
This brand new room sees you struggling to survive in beleaguered Smeet City (Population: Dwindling. Fast.). Can you save it in time or will it go down in flames? Keep your eyes peeled for anything that can help you!
Restore and manage the lighthouse, an invaluable tool for passing ships!
A stormy sky, white sand and grass-covered dunes... and in the middle of it all an old lighthouse with crumbling paint. You have bought this magnificent beach but have a fair amount of restoration work to do! So, roll up your sleeves and get to work, cos in life there is no gain without pain. Ya feel? We feeeel...
Recolour the lighthouse with paint buckets and you will be rewarded with a oceanic amount of Fame Points and a unique Badge, not to mention the beautiful, untamed beach you can now call your own!
Speaking of nature untamed...there's a brave Captain stranded ashore at Sunset Beach who lost her spyglass during her last voyage, which sadly ended up with her ship and all belongings at the bottom of the sea. (So is she really 'brave'? Or just a rubbish sailor? We'll give her the benefit of the doubt).
Anyway...there will be a reward for any Smeeters who provide her a new one (a new spyglass, that is, not a new ship. We aren't all made of money, are we?). It's one of the more precious pieces of booty found at the bottom of the sea, so it's worth your while!
Get along to Sunset Beach and help her now!
Oxford Dictionary defines the word infidelity: “the action or state of being unfaithful to a spouse or other sexual partner.” For purposes of this article, partner refers to the other person in a “committed” relationship. First of all, cheating requires an “action”. Sexual intimacy is, in and of itself, a de facto pledge of exclusivity. If your partner is sleeping with you while secretly pursuing another relationship, it is CHEATING.” (Quoted from : E-Harmony Advice on Relationships)
“Cheating isn’t always flirting, touching or kissing. If you’re having text or chat conversations you wouldn’t want your partner to see because they would “mis-understand”. You are CHEATING” (Author Unknown).
Here are some obvious signs of cheating in a relationship, you should be looking for:
The above indicators are only some warning signs. However, don’t turn your relationship into a situation where you feel you have to play detective. If you notice any changes in behavior, routine, or personality of you partner, you should confront them and ask them.
You should always TRUST your partner, but do not ignore the red flags listed above, but always trust your “gut” feelings. Sometimes it’s just jealousy and insecurity creeping in. If you can’t trust someone over time, don’t date them or end the relationship. (Quoted from: The Hope Line – Dawson McAllister)
What makes a good relationship is honesty and communication. Always communicate your feelings to one another and if the relationship is salvageable, try to work on it. However, continuous infidelity/cheating by your partner can be very devastating to one’s being. There has been numerous scientific studies which indicates that the effects of cheating actually affects one’s brain in a negative way which leads to depression.
Always know your self worth. You are a most valuable and worthwhile person, who does not deserve anything but love, respect, honesty, loyalty and communication. My advice is this: If your partner has been guilty of cheating the first time and continues to cheat over and over again, it is time to move on and end the relationship. Learn to be happy on your own……. Instead of having expectations of others to make you happy. Having expectations of others to make us happy is always going to give us disappointments and discouragement and even depression. So know who you are and know that you are such a valuable, unique, precious, cherished treasure who deserves only the best and good things in your life.
So keep smiling, keep dancing, keep meeting new people and enjoying Smeet until the next time we meet again. <3 If you see me around on Smeet, please say “hi” and if you have any kind of relationship questions, please do not hesitate to message me and I will be sure to answer them in my relationship column. Happy Smeeting to all of you!! <3

The glitz, the glamour, the awards, the...tantrums. It's a week to celebrate the silver screen and it's stars! It's the week leading up to the Oscars, meaning TV, radio and the papers are all full of chatter about the last year's top films and their stars. Things are no different in Smeet (and we aren't just talking about the fact that Tuo won't stop doing his Marlon Brando Godfather impression), as this week is all about movies! Or 'the pictures', as my dear mother still insists on calling them. It's not the 1950s anymore mum...
Anyhow, the new clothing articles for this week are a mixture of evening outfits perfect for attending a high-profile gala, and some iconic stuff straight outta the movies and TV! So the tools are there for you guys to get creative (there is also a 'Filmstar' Avatar Contest running this week). Show us what you can do!
There's also a special bonus on this week's Jet Set Star Smeekiez - if you manage to find them all a part in a movie (not as easy as it sounds, some of their acting skills are rubbish. Absolute rubbish), you will have the opportunity to build a Star Constellation which will give you an additional 150,000 Fame Points!
Right, what's next? Oh yeah, if you are one of those Smeeters that likes to look radically different depending on your mood (surely that's just ALWAYS happy. Right?), check out the sale on Faces, Skins and Make-Up going on this week (sale ends Saturday!).
So, we hope you enjoy all the hype of pre-Oscars week as much as we are going to! Unless you hate movies and all things celebrity. In which case I wish you well and hope it doesn't cause you too many blues this week. Regardless, have a great week!
