Oh hai there! It's been awhile since my last post and I have a lot to share with you guys! My community is so thoughtful and continues to send me amazing gifts. You might have seen some of this already during "Sugar Mail Time" on stream already but I like making these posts for a more detailed look at everything. I've noticed that I am not the only one who appreciates a good-looking packaging. Everything that my viewers send are so photo worthy and I can't help but to grab my camera. I want to thank all the etsy shop owners who have been sending me their creations. Just so you know, I will promote you like crazy on my blog if you send me cute animal crossing merch! I have been adding to my stationary collection because I have reached the point of no return. I was browsing through Blippo.com for like hours and finally put together a cart. I have partnered up with KawaiiBox for two review posts and I fell in love with their products so I decided to place an order for individual items from the shop. I was emailing them and they asked for my order number so that they could add in extra surprises for me! I am so happy that I stand out to a company like them. They treat me very well and always make me smile with their kind gestures. Look forward to that review and another one about a sticker company who contacted me! I don't want to spoil anything so just stayed tuned. I tend to ramble a lot (I have this problem on stream too) so I apologize for this long introduction. Remember when I was going on about my 8th Animal Crossing town in the last post? Well...I've pushed back the date twice and decided that the 10 hour stream is going to happen on September 1st most likely. The graphic for the event is currently in the works and there will be a lot of giveaway prizes! Oh that's right! I wanted to talk about a significant purchase that I made recently. I upgraded my whole stream area with a brand new desk and side shelf. My next lifestyle post is going to be a desk tour! I know I'm just blurting out announcements but there's a very long list to go through. I guess I can keep most of it a secret. Let's get into the post! I hope you enjoy ^_^
I am so impressed by these earrings that Birdofthemoon made! She mentioned to me on stream multiple times that she would be sending these and they have finally arrived in perfect condition. This package was so fun and different because it was stuffed with pom poms! I dumped out a colorful mess onto my desk and found three beautiful pairs of Animal Crossing earrings. I'm sure these items look familiar right? Present boxes, fossils, and refurbished furniture leaves from in game! I tried them all on and the fossils are my favorite! The red leaves represent 3-month subbies in chat since she added the glitter for some sparkle. I don't usually do dangly but I'll give in to anything that is Animal Crossing. These are handmade by one of my lovely subs and her username is Birdofthemoon. Check out her etsy shop if you would like a pair for yourself!

She sent me a separate charm of the fossil style! It comes with a small clasp so that it can be used on a necklace, bracelet, or keychain.
I almost teared up when I went through everything Traveltsum sent me. She's so dang crafty and I'm obsessed with all her diy ideas. This photo of Kitty and my mayor is found on my Bristol Town Page. She made two polaroids: one version has with added filters and decals//one version just as is. I don't know how many times I need to say it but Kitty is my ALL TIME FAVORITE VILLAGER. I LOVE HER SO MUCH. SHE'S SO SASSY AND I ENVY HER. I DEFINITELY CAN'T PULL OFF MAGENTA EYE SHADOW AS WELL AS SHE DOES. Why do I like her so much? I get this question a lot but it's because her name is so generic for a cat and she well...resembles a realistic cat? You know, she's not some crazy color. Brown and white! So simplistic and elegant.
As if the two of me with Kitty wasn't enough! She threw in one more polaroid and it's the one where my mayor is resting near the town plaza tree. The tiles around that area have been changed but when I look at this I kind of miss my plain pink bricks. I still rock the pink party dress but peach parasol and hair bow are not my every day accessories anymore!
I feel so complete after receiving this package. It fills with me joy when people send me Kitty stuff because you can't find ANYTHING with her on it. Official merch? Don't even think about it. Keep dreaming because she's so unpopular that it's almost near impossible to see something made for her. She deserves all the love. Oh yeah, HERE'S THE KITTY AMIIBO CARD PIN. YOUR FAVORITE VILLAGER IS THE BEST ACCESSORY. I've been a Kitty ambassador and wearing this on stream with all my outfits hehe. If you want a pin like this, go to the shop because Traveltsum is actually a distributor now! I teamed up with her to sell the pin packs that she makes. Read my past blog post to see more photo examples. CLICK HERE FOR AMIIBO CARD PIN PACKS AVAILABLE!
Here is the card that she included! You probably already guessed it but YES, SHE MADE THIS CARD TOO. The cut is so clean and the front balloon present is lifted off the page. I think it was nice touch and you can never go wrong with puffy cat stickers.
A WHOLE PACK OF SANRIO STICKER SEALS FROM THE COLLABORATION SERIES! These came out with the Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Cards. NPC's and Sanrio characters cosplay each other and it's the best thing to ever happen. I AM SO THANKFUL BECAUSE I WAS MISSING ISABELLE AND HAD THE OTHER FIVE TAPED TO MY SHELF.
Hello Kitty x Isabelle
Pompompurin x Resetti
Little Twin Stars x Timmy and Tommy
My Melody x Lottie
Keroppi x Kapp'n
Cinnamoroll x DJ K.K.
Amiibo card duplicates! These cards have probably already been bought but IT'S FINE. This is fine. It would have been much better if I got this post up earlier in case anyone wanted these villys. Ahhhh forgive me! It's hard to keep up with everything and I am just too excited when it comes to extra cards.
I always that you can't sway me with Kitty designs for HHD streams during the code submitting contest but you will most definitely get brownie points if you send me KITTY FAN ART. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE HER SO MUCH AHHHH JUST LOOK AT HER SNICKERING. THAT LITTLE GIGGLE. This drawing is fantastic and I will treasure it forever. Well done because it's hard to draw Kitty because you have to get her eyes right. Crying at how heartfelt this letter is.
Looks like an ordinary Cobb card right? WRONG. There are tons of exclusive furniture items saved onto this card. Fatalframe4 put the whole Japanese 7-11 DLC set + K.K. Birthday on this card for me to use on Happy Home Designer. There are some items you cannot obtain anymore because specific events and DLC villagers were only available during a certain time period. Here's more information about adding furniture to an Amiibo card!
It's basically part of my daily routine where I have to watch a Big Bang video, listen to a song, or scroll through news. I feel empty without this band so I make sure to keep up with the them the best I can! I found photos of this drink with ALL THEIR FACES ON IT. I was reading the article about how they became the face of a popular drink in China. It's called Nongfu Spring Tea! THEY JUST OOZE SUCCESS I MEAN REALLY!? I AM SO PROUD TO BE V.I.P BECAUSE THEY ARE TRUE KINGS. China!??? I'M CHINESE SO THIS IS SPECIAL TO ME PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE SO I CAN HAVE A MOMENT. I frantically started to research to see where I could buy it online but no luck. I feel like such a derp for not knowing about this sooner!? How could I have missed something like this? I made it a mission to go out and look for these Big Bang drinks. The first stop was the Asian supermarket that I have been going to with my parents since I was young. They have a huge selection of snacks and unique drinks so I figured it might be on the shelf. NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. I was so disappointed and almost gave up thinking that it's probably not around anymore. NEXT STOP: CHINATOWN! Luis took me on the trip and I asked him to stop in the first little convenience store we saw. I walk over to the fridge and first thing I saw were the drinks!!! LOLOLOL I started freaking out I literally couldn't believe my eyes. I thought I was going to be walking around for an hour desperately looking for this drink.
**CRIES** Why does GD have to be so gorgeous!? ;_;
Look how pretty! When I first saw these bottles I knew I wanted to use them for decoration because I love just love their faces so much. I mean, the art is nice too but what's more important is their face for sure. I bought all members and it was the best $12 I have ever spent. The labels are so colorful and GD's green hair gives me life. I used artificial flowers and I'm really happy with the result.
Flavors (FROM LEFT TO RIGHT):
G-Dragon Pink Label: Grapefruit Jasmine Tea

T.O.P Blue Label: Lemon Black Tea
G-Dragon Pink Label: Grapefruit Jasmine Tea
Taeyang Blue Label: Lemon Black Tea
Daesung Orange Label: Peach Oolong Tea
I am drinking my last bottle right now and it's a very sad moment. I would buy more but they are only sold separately! I wish there was a big case or something because I don't have the budget for such attractive drinks with Big Bang wahhhh~
I didn't know where I wanted to put my G-Dragon concert ticket so I thought inside the GD bottle was a perfect place! Good choice to print it out on pink paper right? The concert information shows through at the bottom and will always remind me of that amazing night. I wrote about my G-Dragon concert experience in my last post here!
I put off starting this jar for so long but it's finally ready! I found an old box of heart mosaic tiles in the AC Moore clearance section and thought they could be useful somehow. They reminded me of candy hearts so I thought it would be fun to write upgraded tier subs names on them! This jar is for those who are extra and decided to support me even more than they already do. I am so blessed. I know it doesn't seem like much but I try my best to have something special and meaningful for subs. I've been adding lots of new perks for stream subbos!!! I appreciate you all so much. Even if you upgrade for only one month your name will stay in this jar! I have plenty of pieces and I painted the back of all of them pink.
I found a washi tape dispenser and it was such a good buy. Totally worth it because now all my rolls are organized! It is a bowl design that can actually stack but AC Moore wasn't selling the extra part so we had to order on Amazon. Luis was getting something he needed and got me some more washi tape as a sweet gesture. I swear he is such an instigator and helps feed my weird addictions. I told myself that after this pack I would have enough to last me for the REST OF MY LIFE. Basically saying that if you ever see me make another post about washi tape I give you full permission to call me out in the comments. I DO NOT NEED MORE. THIS IS GETTING EXCESSIVE.
*Types washi tape into google 5 minutes later*
If you are interested, here are the links to the products! if you can't see them below then you probably have ad-block on. PLEASE turn it off when viewing pages on my website because it helps support me as a content creator :)
Don't sleep on the Marshall's stationary section because the stuff there is not half bad. I can't lie though because a lot of it can be kind of lame. I don't know if you will understand what I mean by that but I'm talking about cliche quotes and tacky patterns. Each item shown in this photo cost less than $4.
This box set is gorgeous. It comes with printed cards and envelopes! I really dig the watercolor flowers. It's rare to find inexpensive sets like this because the envelopes included are usually white. The cards always have something on the front but I can never seem to find colored let alone full on floral envelopes.
I saw this at Marshall's and just could not resist Snoopy. This box set was super cheap and it comes with a notebook, notepad, binder clips, and paperclips. The box alone is adorable and I have tons of stuff from this brand!? It's called Graphique and they have some cool designs.
Professor Snoopy! First lesson is how to write a fancy letter A. These "don't forget" notes will be great to use for my journal or desk area.
Snoopy and Woodstock chilling out by the pool! The other stream notebook I was using was falling apart so this is a nice replacement. I keep track of everything that happens during stream in here!
I got into bullet journaling and then fell behind on it because I lost inspiration. I kept forgetting to put aside time for it! I had no idea how hard it was to write about a day that already happened. I'm here trying to recall exactly what I did MONDAY on a SATURDAY??? No no no, it was pointless and I decided to start fresh. I wrote in pencil for my first one because I hate my handwriting with ballpoint pens. Luis introduced me to Micron Pens and I have discovered a whole new world. He is a writing utensil EXPERT! He owns such high quality pens and pencils meanwhile I'm over here with dollar store gel pens that bleed like crazy. It's scary for someone like me to write in pen because I can be such a perfectionist and I will literally rip out an entire page if I make any kind of mistake. I've had to rewrite multiple pages but I think I finally got the hang of it. I got this snazzy purple moleskine journal at TwitchCon last year! I was very friendly with the two individuals working the small booth so they gave me this to take home! I am so involved with Twitch that I think it's more than fitting to have this be my new journal. Twitch is my life and the best thing to ever happen to me! I want to represent this platform LOUD and PROUD. It needed a more personal touch so I used the Animal Crossing stickers that Traveltsum gave me! Twitch + Animal Crossing is all you need to know about me hehe.
Thanks for reading! It seems like I am able to provide only one lifestyle blog post per month. I hope that's okay because it all depends on what I end up getting in my P.O. Box and if there is anything interesting happening. I spend a lot of time streaming but it's satisfying knowing that I have so many other side projects I can work on. I like blogging about my simple pleasures in life and sharing photos. I am focusing on improving my content and want to make each post better than the last. I really appreciate you all helping to make this new blog a success. I have so many memories I am able to look back on already even though there are not that many entries yet. I love you all. Here is a list of some future posts you will see from me! Have any suggestions? Tell me in the comments below!
