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.

Animal Crossing X Build-A-Bear Collection ♡ My Predictions and Hopes

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.

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.

My Month In Gaming ♡ October 2020

October turned out to be a month of gaming for me. It wasn’t because I bought loads of new games or because there was a new release, it was simply because I didn’t have anything else to do and found myself playing on my Switch a lot. I’m not mad though.

Since March, I had only really been playing Animal Crossing. I was addicted and it’s what I spent most of my time doing. However, the Animal Crossing burnout has hit and I’m hardly even playing the game now.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love Animal Crossing. But I had to start playing something else. And I definitely did just that.

This month I played quite a few different games so I thought I would write a monthly roundup style post to talk about the games that I’ve played.

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…

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.

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.

February 2020 Round-Up

February has come to an end. The second month of the century has been completed. I’m very thankful that it didn’t last as long as January did. I thought that January was never going to end.

February is a funny little month. I always feel like February is the month of change. I’m not sure if there’s a reason that I feel that way, I just do.

I figured that since February has ended, I would share some of the things that I’m ‘currently’ doing.
