I'm back with lots of Animal Crossing goodies to show you guys! It's actually my last day here at the apartment because I leave for California in the morning with Luis! Check out my previous packing post! I will be gone for five days and I honestly don't know what I am going to do. It breaks my heart to be away from streaming for so long. I will do my best to keep you all updated on social media! I'm sure there will be open stations where I can stream for maybe 1-2 hours. TwitchCon isn't until Friday but this year we planned to arrive super early so we can have time to explore before the weekend. I am going to be uploading in total **three** blog posts for you guys to read while I am gone. I wanted to leave behind lots of content because I'm dramatic and acting like I'm leaving forever. PLEASE DON'T FORGET ABOUT ME! LET'S PLAY LOTS OF ANIMAL CROSSING WHEN I RETURN OKAY? COMEBACK STREAM CONFIRMED. Please enjoy your rest of the week//weekend. I love you all and hope to see some of your beautiful faces at the convention. Add me on LINE (Sugarcoatedkiss) if you want to attend my meetup so I can give you the details. Join Discord and follow me on Twitter (@ACNLSugar) for all things cute and Animal Crossing pretty much. Don't miss out on anything! I have some spectacular things to show this time around so let's get into it!
I own the April–June 2016 Pikopuri and August/September 2014 Japanese magazines! They always come with QR code books and some kind of special merchandise. My K.K. Slider CP card was obtained from these magazines. The Isabelle card I showed on my last lifestyle blog post was bought individually because the magazine+card is like $200. I discovered a new April-June 2017 issue on Yes-Asia and did some research about what came with it. There is only one photo on the listing and on the cover you can see that this issue comes with some type of book. I got Animal Crossing playing cards with the 2014 issue!
I love these magazines because it usually promotes Animal Crossing and other 3DS titles as well! The smaller book is actually a planner.
Here is the front of of the magazine. The format for Japanese manga, magazines, and other books is right to left. Just like Chinese writing style and how the books typically start from the right side. I'm starting to miss life in China when talking about this. When I was visited as a teenager, I used to go to a small bookstore with my Grandmother to buy Doraemon mangas. I haven't touched a legit book//novel in so long! That's what being out of school does to you.
The sticker sheet is a nice bonus and probably my favorite part. These magazines are great for photos too!
A whole spread with all the new villagers from the Welcome Amiibo update! I'll be cutting this out and using it as a poster for my wall.
It's too bad that I can't even read Japanese. I want to know what's going on in this Animal Crossing story! I DEMAND TO KNOW WHO THE ARTIST IS. YOU ARE SO TALENTED.
Someone please translate this comic for me. Looks like the poochys are digging for treasures? The shy guy with the megaphone makes it look like some kind of race. I have no idea what's going on BUT I LOVE IT. BABY POOCHYS. ROUND CHIBI YOSHIS.
Look who's on the cover for the schedule page! Poppy is the villager I chose for my sugarBLUSH emote and this was totally a sign. I think I made the right decision.
WISP YOU ARE MY FAVORITE CLOWN GHOST. I mean, it would nice if I could scan more than one card/figure a day but you cool. Thanks for all the meow coupons.
This planner is so adorable I don't even want to use it. I like how they added in villagers and NPCs at the bottom of each page.
I AM SCREAMING!!! IT'S TAD BB!!! I was flipping through and LOST IT when I saw this cute little guy at the bottom of the page in the notes section.
I sold my amiibo card duplicates on Mercari before I had my online website shop here at sugarcoatedkiss.com! It's one of those buy and sell used items apps. I stopped using it for almost a year and saw an email about some coupon I had. I thought why not just browse through to see if I can find anything I like. I almost couldn't believe it! I typed in Animal Crossing and found the rare Stitches keychain plushie on sale for $20. YOU CAN'T EVEN FIND THIS ON EBAY ANYMORE. I have Rosie and all the other Wild World characters go for $40-80. When you press his tummy he sings jingles and villager expressions in a lazy voice just like in game! Rosie has a cat voice :3
This was my first time buying from the yetee.com! This website sells designs made by artists but only for a limited time. There are usually two shirts that are featured on the front page for 24 hours. After that, it's gone! I saw a preview for these two Animal Crossing tees on Twitter so I was READY. It's such a nice price too. Each one was $12 and on most sites something like this will go for $25-30. I don't know if it's just me but I hate how expensive graphic tees are. I am SO IN LOVE WITH THESE TWO. I got the gyroid party and LEIF. LEIF SO PRECIOUS PICKING THOSE FLOWERS.

I always knew about Wish.com//Wish App but I just didn't know if I could trust it. The prices seem TOO good to be true and the products are all very questionable and super sketchy. Bootleg is my middle name so I finally decided to give in. The first thing I added to my cart was this Little Twin Stars Cotton Swab Storage Case! I use cotton swabs every day to take off my makeup so I needed a spot for all of them! Of course I had to get something decorative! It's obviously not officially licensed by Sanrio BUT WHO CARES BECAUSE IT'S STILL CUTE LOL. Yay for star toppers!
I paid $1.70 for this since there is an option to "buy with others" when you check out. You get a discounted price for the item that you are viewing! I think as long as someone else is looking at the same item as you or has it in their cart as well you can snag a nice deal. Everything on this app is SO cheap but it gets even better with this feature.
Put whatever you want in here honestly! You don't have to use it just for cotton swabs. I am very tempted to buy another one to keep at my desk for other small trinkets.
I was in desperate need of an upgrade for how I package my shop orders. I picked out a few plastic adhesive character bags for sending out amiibo cards. No more tissue paper! Remember the bear face bag from the J1Con blog post? I FOUND IT ON WISH AND THE PACK CAME WITH 20 BAGS! I will be using them for TwitchCon to make goodie bags for those who attend my meet up. Business card, pin, candy, and more! Will I see you there?
I have been obsessed with Molang bunny for as long as I can remember. You have probably seen me using a lot of Molang gifs for the cycling blog posts. This sticker pack was FREE so why not!? There are 46pcs with different designs for all of them! One of these stickers can definitely brighten someone's day. I should include one whenever I send a package.
Can you find my discord server picture in here? I'll give you a hint. It has a big tea cup! ♡
I gave away a few Animal Crossing backpack buddies during one of my 10 hour streams a couple weeks back. They fit perfectly into the plastic bunny bags! I put the candy inside too because I usually just throw it in with everything else. Now it's all organized and presentable!
I can never find colored envelopes anywhere and if I do they are mad expensive. These long patterned envelopes only cost $1 for a pack of 20! They had polka dots and lots of pastels in the photo but they sent me lots of stripes :( Boooo. It's random what they add I guess. I adore the heart one because it resembles a valentine's chocolate box!
I needed more sticker flakes in my life and who doesn't like Rilakkuma am I right? Rilakkuma is always better with Korilakkuma!
Itty bitty Rilakkumas! Sleepy faces and lots of food. Can't go wrong with that!
Let me make it very clear to everyone that I ordered the Korilakkuma version of this bin. This was the one item that I was so excited to get AND THEY SENT ME THE WRONG ITEM. I DON'T REMEMBER THIS DUCK EVEN BEING AN OPTION DURING CHECK OUT. IT'S BENT IN THE BACK AND LOOKS DIRTY ON THE FRONT. I'm not sure if you can see in the photo but it's got splotches all over!
This Doraemon box was hidden behind everything on the shelf in the toy store that I like to go to in Chinatown. I left it the first time I saw and I couldn't stop thinking about it. INSTA REGRET SO I HAD TO GO BACK. Turns out it's actually a music box!!!
Yes, that's Doraemon's butt on the knob. IT'S SUCH A CUTE BUTT THOUGH. I thought this was too funny.
Two compartments for the drawer! My desk could really use a hug so maybe this can help with the mess. GOOD THING ORGANIZERS EXIST.
MY NEW BACKPACK KEYCHAINS! I feel like Kanahei+small animals is hard to come by so I was very happy to find this set on ebay. I don't shop on ebay often but I couldn't say no to the bunbun and ducko pair.
I FINALLY HAVE IT. G-Dragon's new album: Kwon Ji Yong! I could never afford to buy any of his albums when I was younger so this is an exciting purchase for me. CD's are a bit outdated now but there's something unique about his new album. The music is stored on a flashdrive!
I thought I was getting two photo cards with my order because that's what it said in the title but oh well. I still get this photo card of his beautiful face! I WANT THAT PEACEMINSUONE BEANIE FOR FALL.
The red paint rubs off! I can see how some people would complain about this but I honestly don't mind at all LOL. I mean it's G-Dragon...I'd be fine with the CD exploding in my face.
The other side has all big members in their "FXXK IT" era outfits. If you haven't seen the music video for that song yet, PLEASE DO.
I like how the case almost doubles as a mirror. I can see my reflection and take artsy photos.
