Animal Crossing Island Updates ♡ My Island Life So Far

I’m pretty sure that you all know that I love Animal Crossing by now. It’s taking over my life and I’m not sorry at all. I’ve played for over 280 hours so far and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon.

I finally got a 5 star island just the other day so I’m still super excited about that too.

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.

My Animal Crossing: New Horizons Daily Checklist

The best thing about Animal Crossing: New Horizons is that there’s something new to do every day. As well as those new tasks, you can complete some daily checklist tasks. These tasks will help you make the most of my time on your island. Many of these tasks can be completed everyday so it’s pretty easy to create a routine out of these.

You don’t have to do all of these everyday because you’ll find that some of these work well for your island well but others just don’t work for you. That’s why I love Animal Crossing though. Everyone plays for them and you can play at your own pace. It’s just such a calming game.

The Most Magical Quotes From Frozen II

I am literally not able to get over the fact that Frozen II has been out for about two months at this point. Frozen II was realised in the UK on the 22nd of November, 2019 and I didn’t actually watch it until the 26th of November, 2019. That wait nearly killed me!

Since Frozen II’s release, I have watched it quite a few times in the cinema and I would happily watch it even more. Since I’m still not over how great it was, I thought I would share some of my favourite and most magical Frozen II quotes here on my blog.

How To Prepare Your Phone For A Disney Trip

Visiting a Disney park is a dream come true. Not every Disney fan is lucky enough to be able to visit a park in their life. If you are lucky enough, you’ll want to make sure that you’re all ready to make your time as magical as possible.

It’s not only important to get yourself ready but you need to prep your phone too.

I don’t think that people realise how important their phone is for the perfect Disney trip. Everything used to come on paper several years ago. You had your fastpasses on paper, your maps on paper and you had your meal reservations on paper. But, those days are gone. Everything is digital which makes your phone so much more important than you would think.

How To Spend Time Without Your Phone

Is your phone the first thing you reach for in the morning and the last thing you touch before bed? Do you frequently pick it up “just to check”, only to look up forty-five minutes later wondering where the time has gone?

If you do, then you’re like the 99% (this is not a fact, don’t quote me, I could be exaggerating) of people who are also addicted to their phones. They are our life these days. They are full of all our details, plans and even banking so we would be pretty messed up without them really.

Even though we love our phones a lot, and I mean a lot, a lot. We all still need a little bit of phone-free time in our lives.

What I Learned From My First Trip To Walt Disney World

I have an infinity annual pass for Disneyland Paris and I have been a few times now. It’s so magical and I love it. However, even though my love for Disney grows stronger every single day, I had never actually managed to make the trip to Walt Disney World. It had been on my bucket list for a while though.

As a Brit, it’s pretty expensive to go to Walt Disney World so it was something that I could never really afford to do. However, 18 months ago, Simon and I decided to save up and make the effort to head over to Florida to visit Disney World.

We arrived back just less than a week ago and I feel like I learnt a lot that I should tell you about so that you can make the most of your first trip to Disney World.

Taking a break is definitely necessary

Don’t be afraid to admit defeat in a Disney park. Especially is said Disney park is in Orlando. The weather there is absolutely mad. It’s so hot and humid which can make you feel completely exhausted. It’s completely okay to take a midday break. That break can be different for everyone but for me, it was going back to the hotel, turning on the air conditioner and maybe taking a nap. For other people though, it’s simply sitting on a bench and drinking a cold drink.

Select the quick service meal plan

This is what we did and it’s definitely something that we would do again. Dining in Walt Disney World is absolutely crazy. For us, sit down restaurant meals just weren’t going to happen. Hopefully next time but for our first trip, we wanted to keep it as simple as possible. The quick service meal plan saved us a lot of money and we were never going hungry. The snacks and meals are huge and you can still eat as much as you want.

You’ll always wish that you had more time

No matter how much you plan, you will never accomplish it all in the one trip. Even though we went for two weeks, I feel like we would have needed another two more weeks just to get everything done. If you plan to spend time in the hotel, plan mini-golf, visit other hotels or even go to the water parks, you would need even more time on top of that.

Going to Disney World was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. There were a few things that I wish I changed but I just get to take them into consideration next time I go.

Have you ever been to a Disney park before? If you have, which is your favourite?
