I accidentally developed a Youtube obsession. It all started when I decided to waste a bit of time during these never ending lockdowns. What started as a time waster, has turned into a favourite part of my day. It sounds silly but I just love getting into bed in the evening and watching some of my favourite youtubers.
Recently I’ve been watching a lot of videos about vintage fashion, cottagecore, books and home decor. I do love other types of content too and I will watch all sorts, but those are the most common for me to watch recently.
Anyway, here are some of the youtubers that I’ve been watching recently..
New Pokemon Snap is a relaxing and fun game for any Pokemon fan. In the game, players are tasked with helping Professor Mirror explore the islands of the Lental region. With your research camera at the ready, you become a Pokemon researcher who explores islands and takes photos of Pokemon in order to learn more about them and the way they live.
You are given unlimited access to the NEO-ONE which is a high tech vehicle that allows you to teleport and survive in all kinds of environments. You do not control the NEO-ONE as New Pokemon Snap is an on-rails game but believe me, you won’t feel restricted in this game at all.
I was never able to play the original Pokemon Snap when it was released back in 1999, so I didn’t feel the nostalgia that many others did when New Pokemon Snap was announced. That definitely doesn’t mean that I wasn’t excited though.
There’s often a lot of joy to be found in the smallest and simples parts of everyday. Sometimes it can be hard to see the happy parts of daily living because we are all so busy just trying to get through the day. Life can feel repetitive and rubbish, but if you really think about it, you might be able to find some beauty in parts of your day that you wouldn’t usually think about.
Since finding the beauty in everyday life can be harder for some people, I decided to post a list of a few little ideas to help inspire you..
After rewatching all the Marvel films, I thought that I would have ended up in a bit of a movie watching rut. But it just didn’t happen. I ended up finding a love of different films that I didn’t expect myself to like. I even ended up watching an old black and white film. I think my preferred film types are changing… and I’m not mad.
But anyway, this edition of movie ratings may have a few films that I didn’t expect to like but absolutely loved. It’s been a good time for film watching.
As always, some of these films are re-watches and some of these films are first time watches.
Now, here are my rating of my most recently watched films.
Twitter is probably my all time favourite social media. Instagram is great, don’t get me wrong. But on Twitter, I can tweet random rubbish and there’s no pressure to make it perfect like I sometimes feel with Instagram.
My One of my favourite things about Twitter is how quickly it moves. I love that one second I can tweet about a film and the next second I can tweet about travel. There’s not really much pressure to niche down on Twitter and I just love that. If you’ve been to my blog before then you’ve probably noticed that finding a niche isn’t my strong point.
So yeah, Twitter is fun, good for growing your online brand and it’s a fab way to make some new friends too. But… what do you tweet about when you feel like you have nothing to say?
If you have read any post on this blog before, then you probably know that I absolutely love Animal Crossing. You probably also know that I love plushies. Add those two things together and you’ve just made my dreams come true.
So of course, when Build-A-Bear announced that they had an Animal Crossing colab coming, I couldn’t contain my excitement.
I thought it would be a pretty fun idea to talk about what I predict we will get from the range and what my hopes are.
For most of my life, I’ve know people who can crochet. Whether it was a family member, a friend or someone who I chatted to online, I feel like I knew a lot of talented people. I found myself owning quite a few crocheted pieces that I was gifted from people and I loved all of them. I love the idea that someone put all that time and effort into making a blanket, gloves, scarf or whatever else, just for me. It warms my heart that someone would put effort and time into something for little old me.
Since I love the look of crochet, I wanted to try it out for myself. I’ve tried a few time in the past but I was never able to stick it out.
I recently tweeted out that I wanted to be able to crochet and people’s responses were so lovely that I decided to give it another go for myself.
So, I set off on a mission to start learning how to crochet..
One thing I love is searching through Amazon for beautiful home decor pieces. Since Spring is coming up, I decided to have a little look at some of the Spring items that I could find. There was so much cute stuff that I decided to share some bits and bobs with you.
This Spring for me is all about those green colours and cottagecore aesthetic. So, if that’s your kind of thing then you might enjoy these home pieces too.
