Hai there! Welcome to the start of my brand new lifestyle blog. Most of my blogs are pretty much only Animal Crossing and that's where I obsess about the game, villagers, and my multiple towns. What am I even saying? This entire website is all about Animal Crossing. I have been adding some variety to the tabs such as the review posts so that I can share my most recent and loved products. Vlogging and blogging is enjoyable because it's a way you can document your life and have the ability to look back on special moments. I tried Youtube and honestly didn't really have fun with it. I will upload occasional vlogs when I travel for conventions but all my time and energy will always go to Twitch and my wonderful community. I have trouble putting my thoughts together sometimes but writing really puts me at ease. I know I sit in front of a camera every day but I get so nervous when trying to film a video because I am always very critical of myself. I am just never satisfied. HOWEVER, something you should know about me is that I REALLY LIKE taking pictures. Selfie game strong, Animal Crossing photographer extraordinaire, AND WHATEVER ELSE YOU WANT TO CALL ME. One of my new favorite things is definitely blogging. I have built up a huge collection of cute things that I want to show you guys. This first post is going to mention the items that I cannot live without. It's basically a sneak peek at what I have on my desk and things I need for stream! These are the items that help me achieve aesthetic goals. Hehe I hope you enjoy! Let's check it out! My Favorites ♡
This is one of my most valuable possessions. Next to my 3ds console. If you don't already know, yes, I am that crazy girl who owns 8 copies of Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I only own physical copies! I don't like digital because it makes everything difficult. Why have a boring case when you can have Sanrio? Pink is the superior color and I also decided to add some stickers! (I use a small piece of washi tape on my game copies so that I can tell which is which! For example: Disney Town is labeled with winking Mickey)
This is only half of my stash but here are some of my most used washi tape rolls! I send out a lot of mail because I do shop orders, giveaways, etc. You can use washi tape in so many different ways. They add color and creativity to my life.
This is the mini album that I used when I first started collecting the Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards!
I always recommend this one for those who are just starting their journey. If you don't want to spend too much on the official collector albums then this is the perfect choice for you! It only sells for $5-9 dollars on most sites and it holds a whole series of cards: 100+ cards! It has the Happy Home Designer artwork but you could decorate it with stickers. You could choose to purchase four of these for Series 1-4. Don't forget about the RV Welcome Amiibo cards! This album is a very affordable option if you need a place to store your new 50 villager cards. The one I have is a promo binder (see on collection page) but it's usually pretty expensive. It's a bit more flimsy and lower quality obviously compared to the bigger albums but it gets the job done! It's small and travel size :)
LOOKING FOR AMIIBO CARDS? CHECK OUT MY SHOP!
Okay so let's talk sd cards. I don't know about you guys but I can't use miiverse for all the photos that I take in Animal Crossing. I have different games...different towns. It gets very confusing and hard to sort through thousands of photos on one sd card. I have a separate card for when I play Happy Home Designer because it's more organized this way for my blog posts. SAVE ALL THE CUTE PHOTOS YOU TAKE WITH YOUR VILLAGERS! Here are some converters that you can use!
SD CARD BRICK/USB CORD
The reason why I have different styles is because sometimes I'll need to have 2-3 sd cards in my computer at one time so I can go through endless folders of photos. I used to be on the go a lot when I was in school and managing my website so I needed USB because my macbook air didn't have slots for adapters. I would work on posts during my breaks before classes c:
If you play on your 3ds for hours and hours like me YOU NEED THIS. Bless this stylus pen for real because just look and compare it to the one that comes with my console. IT'S LEGIT A TOOTHPICK. It's very uncomfortable to hold and I used to lose it all the time because it would just fall out of my hand or I would end up throwing it across the room somehow. I added a Rosie charm to my jumbo pen because WHY NOT. I really should think about buying a new one because it's falling apart. THANKS TO MY AMAZING CAMERA SKILLS YOU CAN'T REALLY TELL CAN YA??? HEHEHE.
This pen only comes with the GameStop HHD Starter Kit (mentioned in my video here) but don't worry because I did some shopping for you guys on Amazon. See if you like any of these I found similar to mine:
I started a bullet journal not too long ago and I am so addicted. I bought mildliners because they are shown in every single tumblr photo. I JUST WANTED TO BE TRENDY AND HIP. Seriously though, bullet journals help with getting things done. They are very decorative and you can make it as personal as you want! I only have a couple of pages and am not confident enough to show them off. A bullet journal is like a hybrid of a planner and diary! You have so much freedom with it. I still keep a simple notepad out on my desk for quick reminders and other important things that I might not remember later after stream. I am always jotting things down during stream because I do tons of multiplayer stuff. There is no way I would be able to keep up with my Cycling Town Recap Blog if it wasn't for my adorable pens and notebooks. One of my amazing mods (Paliane) sent me sanrio stickers and writing utensils! I was tired of using big, ugly, and very manly scissors so I went out to the Sanrio shop in Chinatown and picked up the cutest pair. Hello Kitty BRANDZ. The Line Play Bear was a must have because I was so into the Line Play phone app at one point.
I got this Doraemon pencil case when I was visiting China with my mom. I think I was 12 years old at the time? It's still hanging in there and looks pretty clean because I took very good care of it. Doraemon reminds me of my childhood and is such a cute character. I have DVDs of the episodes in Chinese and I'll sometimes rewatch them for a good nostalgia session. When I shut down my computer and say goodbye to the online world, I bring this case and my journal to bed with me. I write and go to sleep.

I am not very interesting when it comes to drinks. Water is what I usually drink and it gets me through the day! ALWAYS STAY HYDRATED MY FELLOW CONTENT CREATORS! I stream for 5-6 hours almost every day so satisfying my thirst is super important. TOP PRIORITY. I have a giant water jug that I fill up before stream and keep on my desk. On my days off I'll be working on something at my desk or gaming so I need my water. How could I call myself an Animal Crossing streamer if I didn't have a cup to prove it? I like the straw cups because it's easier than having a water bottle. TOO MUCH EFFORT TO UNSCREW CAP AND DRINK LOL. Just let me be lazy okay!? I am a blob who needs to play my game on stream. I'll be tapping on my 3ds screen with one hand and sipping water with my other. Perfect. So easy.
I won't be posting here too often because all my attention goes to Animal Crossing blogs of course! AC is life and life is AC. My daily life isn't even that exciting so there won't be much to write about. I want this blog to be a place where I can talk about more personal stuff! A few lovely individuals from my stream community sent some stuff to my P.O. Box and it would be a great idea if I started to take pictures of everything for safe keep. That should be next on the list! I already have a scrapbook but putting into a post would be so meaningful! I have been feeling really inspired and motivated lately so keeping busy with more blogs seems about right. I tend to pile things on and get way overwhelmed but I am learning how to balance. I am going to add in a section about current status because it reminds me of the deviantart journals I used to read when I was younger.
