New Pokémon Snap ♡ Gaming Review

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.

I Binge Watched Every Marvel Movie And These Are My Thoughts

I’ve been a Marvel fan since 2014 when I watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the cinema. Before then, I had watched a few of the films but never really fully invested. After watching The Winter Soldier, I decided I wanted to learn more about the Marvel Universe. I did a little research and watched a few more of the earlier films. It was great!

Since then, I have invested more and more of my time into the Marvel Universe. I’ve watched most of the films and enjoyed them. However, I didn’t seem to remember every single detail.

That is why… I decided to rewatch every Marvel film.

Since rewatching all the films, I thought of some things that I felt I wanted to share. Hence, this blog post.

Book Review: Roots by Tara O’Connor

‘Wrapped in real family history and set amongst the natural beauty of the Irish countryside, Roots is a classic romantic-comedy adventure and a page-turning account of a young woman finding herself. On a journey to the old world ― she discovered a whole new world. After a messy year of heartbreak and setbacks, Tara sets off to Ireland in search of clues to her family’s ancestry, but what she found wasn’t at all what she expected. Some of it has to do with the lack of records, but a lot has to do with John, the charming cartoonist she met on Twitter.’

I stumbled upon this book when scrolling through Prime Reads on Amazon. Graphic novels are one of my favourite things to read and this one seemed pretty simple and cute so I decided to give it a go.

A Few Snaps of My Animal Crossing Home Interior

Animal Crossing has become a huge part of my life again. I found myself getting bored of the game at the end of last year but I found myself loving it again in January.

Since I’ve started playing ACNH more again, I thought that it might be fun to show you all some screenshots of my home interior.

The Living Room

My living room is definitely not my normal style but I found myself loving the antique furniture in the game so I focused my living room decor around the antique furniture.

My Animal Crossing living room is so cosy, I just can’t get enough of it. I think that adding a lot of plants and green with the brown/orange of the antique furniture looks so warm and relaxing.

A-Z Of My Favourite Characters

People online keep talking about comfort characters and I honestly love it. Finding a character who brings you happiness in that way is just so lovely. I was trying to work out who my comfort character was but I couldn’t just choose one.

So, I decided to try making an A-Z list of all my favourite characters. I feel like this might be easier than choosing just one comfort character.

So, here are my favourite characters from tv shows, films and games.

Animal Crossing Island Build Ideas

The online Animal Crossing communities can be so much fun. I absolutely love seeing what people have been working on for their island and seeing people having so much fun playing the game.

I know that sometimes the Animal Crossing Twitter community can be a little harsh but overall, it’s such a wonderful place. I do love to have a scroll though the #ACNH hashtag often though.

I found myself struggling a little when it came to thinking of area ideas to fill my island which is why I found myself scrolling through ideas online. I found some lovely area ideas so I thought that I would compile a list here on my blog so you all have some new ideas too.

So, if you’re looking for area inspiration for your island then look no further…

A Playlist For Mental Health Recovery

My mental health sucks right now. Lockdown is draining me and I feel like I’m stuck. Right now, my main way of making myself feel less glum is listening to some motivating, spirt lifting, happy, positive songs.

Music has a weird way of making you completely change your mood and it can even give you courage that you didn’t know that you had. That is why I think that music is more important than ever right now.

I’m not sure if your mental health sucks too but I do know that a positive and uplifting playlist is great all of the time. It’s just especially great when your mental health isn’t at it’s best.

The Estellosaurus Animal Crossing Island Getaway Tag

Animal Crossing is taking over my life. Everything I do revolves around the game these days. Even when I see a bug in real life, my brain instantly tries to work out how many bells that bug is worth. If only I carried a net with me in real life too.

I have now nearly clocked 200 hours of Animal Crossing: New Horizons gameplay and I don’t intend on stopping anytime soon.

My wonderful friend, Estelle has created an Animal Crossing themed tag and I was so happy to be tagged.
