Animal Crossing Fan Theories That Are Crazy And Possibly True

Animal Crossing: New Horizons hasn’t even been out for a month yet and here I am, ready to talk about the dark side of a nice thing.

Animal Crossing has always been such a cheerful and calming game, but does something more sinister lie beneath its cheerful exterior?

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.

Top 5 Animation Shows

I love animations. I don’t watch much tv but when I do it’s probably an animation show.

I wanted to talk a little bit about my top cartoons/animations. I thought it would be fun for you to find some to watch too through my recommendations.

Gravity Falls

This is definitely my absolutely favourite animation show. It follows the story of Mable and Dipper who go to stay with their Uncle Stan for the summer. They get up to all kinds of crazy things and they discover that Gravity Falls is not normal at all.

Mable is the cutest character ever and I would love to cosplay her one day. She has an adorable fashion sense and is super kind and funny. Uncle Stan is grumpy which brings a lot of humour to the show. Dipper is funny too but in a completely different way to Uncle Stan.

Hilda

I only started this show a few months ago but I’ve already watched it all… twice. Hilda, a fearless blue-haired girl, travels from a wilderness full of elves and giants to a bustling city packed with new friends and mysterious creatures. We follow her adventures and it’s just so fun.

Steven Universe

‘Weeeeee… are the crystal gems….’ But anyway, I adore this show. The animations are adorable and everyone can relate to a different character in some kind of way. I’m definitely a combo of Steven and Amethyst but maybe with a bit more Amethyst.

The Crystal Gems are a group of magical bearings who’s job is to save the universe. They have a half magical being called Steven who is like the little brother of the group.

Aggretsuko

I finished season one of this show just the other day and I loved it. With each episode only being 15 minutes long, it made the show easier to digest which was good for my short attention span.

Aggretsuko follows Retsuko ass she deals with her accounting day job and her horrible boss by singing heavy metal karaoke.

She-Ra

Now, I wasn’t sure if I should include this show in my list as I only just started it but it was so much fun during the first few episodes so I wanted to include it.

She-Ra, Princess of Power, leads a rebellion to free her land of Etheria from the monstorus invaders the Horde. My favourite character is Glimmer and she is fun and adorable.

Aggretsuko Season One Review (Spoilers)

I literally had no idea that I would love a cutesy/death-metal show as much as I did. But anyway, let’s review the show.

Each episode of the show is only 15-minutes long which is great because it can keep my attention all the way though and it is easy to binge watch.

Retsuko is a red panda who started her accounting job with high hopes and positivity. Now that she has worked there for a while, the spark has gone and she isn’t feeling so great about her job. After a hard day of work, Retsuko going to sing death metal karaoke. However, no one knows about this, not even her friends from work.

While she sings karaoke death metal, she sings all about how much she hates her boss. Mr. Ton is at pig who serves as the series’ primary antagonist, and while he makes for an appropriately awful representation of the worst kind of boss it makes the show that little bit funnier.

As the show goes on, Retsuko finds hope as she sees chances of leaving her job, love and friendship.

I watched the show in English but I wish I watched it in Japanese with English subtitles as someone else has said that it’s the better way to do it.

For literally all of the show, I was glued to the screen. I loved the friendship that developed between Washimi and Gori. They are two of the office’s most awesome ladies and even though they didn’t seem approachable at first, the three of them made a great friendship group.

Another thing that I loved was that even though Retsuko’s life seemed to be a little rubbish, she still had positive things happen to her. She started yoga, made new friends and even found romance.

The season ended with the possibility of romance between Retsuko and Haida, Retsuko’s hyena coworker. They seems like a super cute couple which warms my heart.

Aggretsuko is an excellent series that anyone who loves good comedy and great characters can enjoy, even if they’re not necessarily an anime fan.

What I’ve Been Playing ♡ March 2019

I asked on Twitter for people to link me to their blogs. Someone who did that was the lovely Nikki from nikkipedia. I had never read her blog before but it was absolutely fabulous. Definitely a new favourite blogger.

But anyway, I got an idea while reading her blog. Every month (if I remember), I will write a roundup post of everything I’ve been playing recently. Whether it’s a app game, computer game, DS game or xbox game, I’ll include it in my roudup post.

I’m hoping that these posts will encourage you all to discover new games that you wouldn’t have ever thought of playing!

So… here’s the March edition of What I’ve Been Playing..!

Minecraft

I started playing Minecraft around 6/7 years ago. I would stay up late into the night and early hours of the morning just mining and building things. However, I stopped playing for a couple of months until Simon bought me a copy for the Nintendo Switch from Christmas last year. Now, I’m addicted again. I recently just built a cinema which looks so cool!

Disney’s Magic Kingdoms

I play this game on my iPhone and it’s so much fun and so addictive. I seem to be checking it at least five times a day if not more. If you haven’t heard of it then it’s basically a game where you get to build and run your own Disney park. It’s great fun for any Disney fan.

Crash Bandicoot N’sane Trilogy

I was so happy when this game was released that I bought it as soon as I could. However, it is so much more difficult than it was when I was a kid. I struggle with it a lot but at the same time, it’s so much fun. I seem to be stuck on a certain level though so every now and then, I head back onto the game and attempt the level again. Each time, I get a little further but it’s so frustrating that I can’t do it.

What have you been playing lately? Any games that you recommend that I check out?

Why You Should Watch Hilda If You Like Gravity Falls

If you know me then you’ll know that I love Gravity Falls. Sadly, I’ve watched all of Gravity Falls a lot of times now so I’m always on the hunt for similar things to watch.

I was scrolling though the internet when I noticed a show that was similar to Gravity Falls. That show is called Hilda!

I decided to throw myself into the show without watching the trailer because I feel like trailers often ruin a show for me.

Hilda is based off the graphic novel series by Luke Pearson. Both the graphic novels and the show follow the story of Hilda; a fearless girl who lives with her mum and her pet Deerfox names Twig. Hilda and her family lived in a forest cabin. That is until certain events happen which force Hilda and her mom and a little elf named Aulfur to move to the city of Trolberg and the show follows Hilda as she learns to adapt to city life, meet new friends and discovers all sorts of weird and mysterious things along the way.

Sound familiar? If you’re getting Gravity Falls vibes I do not blame you!

Hilda is being compare to Gravity Falls by many. Hilda herself is in a way, a mix of Dipper and Mabel. She has Dipper’s interests in the wilderness and the unknown. She also gets along with people and has a personality that is just like Mabel’s when it comes to being caring to others.

But as you all know, Hilda is a whole other show and sometimes I feel like I shouldn’t be comparing all shows to Gravity Falls. While it is nice to compare the showers, I feel like you should watch tv shows as if Gravity Falls never existed.

Not only does Hilda have great characters but it’s visually breathtaking. The animation flows beautifuly, the backgrounds are stunning and the scenery is perfect.

Hilda has me sat watching with a huge grin on my face. Hilda’s humour is pretty straight up and sophisticated. The humour is very ‘British’. The show is absolutely full of tea jokes.

Out of all the animation shows that I have watched thanks to Gravity Falls, Hilda is a person favourite. It is even pretty close competition with Gravity Falls for my all time favourite animation show. It’s full of nostalgia, pretty visuals, fun characters and amazing stories to top it off.

If you’re in need of something to watch and you’ve already watched Gravity Falls, I definitely recommend that you check out Hilda. It is worth watching even if you didn’t like/haven’t seen Gravity Falls.

Valentine’s Day Books ♡ A Collaboration With The Mum Who Read

I’ve wanted to collaborate with another blogger for the longest time. I had just never gotten around to it. But today is the day, the day that I’m collaborating with a fellow blogger. 

Today’s post is a collaboration with the very lovely Shannon from The Mum Who Read, so don’t forget to check out her blog too!

We were tossing some ideas back and forth until we eventually decided to write about books and Valentine’s Day. We both love books and romance so it’s the perfect topic.



So, if you’re looking for some romantic, love stories to read, keep on reading..! 

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

If you haven’t read this book yet then I just do not know what you’re doing with yourself. 

Everything, Everything follows the story of a girl with a disease which means that she can not leave the house without getting ill. When a cute boy moves in next door, she falls in love and it follows their story.

This was a super cute love story with amazing illustrations that made it easy to read. I also thought this book did a fantastic job at balancing the lightheartedness with the more serious stuff.

Noughts And Crosses by Malorie Blackman

Ah, one of my all time favourite books by one of my all time favourite authors.

This book is all about racism and discrimination. Sephy is a cross and Callum is a nought. Noughts and crosses just don’t mix. But can Callum and Sephy find a way to be together?

This book was very hyped when I first read it and now I completely understand why!

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

This book is my favourite by Rainbow Rowell even though I love all of her work. Maybe I’m slightly bias as I share a first name with the main character but ya know.?!

Eleanor & Park follows two characters who have completely different backgrounds. Eleanor is the new girl in town and Park is a quiet, cool kid (in Eleanor’s eyes anyway). Over time, they begin to fall in love.

The book has very mixed reviews but for me, it’s perfect. I loved the characters and I loved their little love story.

What books do you plan on reading this Valentine’s Day?
