Monday Mindful Manifestation

I stumbled on a blog post from writing from nowhere where she created a series of inspiring quotes in wallpaper format.

This one is currently my lock screen wallpaper. I use to change mine out every week with a new quote; it definitely helped me keep myself accountable and focused on my goals. I should start that up again!

Friday Finds (2)

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these and tbh most of the stuff I’ve been bookmarking/screenshotting is either Animal Crossing design codes or new snacks I wanna try.

The lock down is starting to get to me; only because Fall is right around the corner and I won’t be able to freely run around and do all the fun Fall things I wait all year for. So here’s to hoping the second Animal Crossing Summer update is gonna be epic + there will be tons of new snacks and products to try!

Recap 2020; June

Damn I’m inconsistent huh? It’s ok, I hate that about myself too.

 

To be honest I spiraled into another pit of depression and I can’t remember too much of June. I don’t think I even did much. The Covid thing really messes up my posts like this but it does force me to find other ways to be creative and discover other things to love that aren’t products or require me to go shopping.

Thank goodness for my camera roll or I’d have ZERO idea what I even did in June! But it looks like a lot of Animal Crossing!

Monday Mindful Manifestation

So how did I do with last week’s MMM? I think I did pretty well; I obviously haven’t worked through  all of it but I’ve at least tried to actively make moves to be better at controlling my thoughts and feelings towards it.

This weeks Monday Mindful Manifestation is something that I’ve always truly believed and something that I stick to as much as I can. I get to choose my tribe and my circle. I get to have control over what type of energy I want to surround myself with and knowing I’m a creative type, I like to keep other likeminded and creative people around me. I love bouncing ideas off of friends, they definitely help me stay on my goals and help hold me accountable. And if I have a problem, they help me brainstorm a solution.

I’ve always believed that people who sit around talking about other people have small minds, and project their own insecurities super loudly by doing so. Maybe it’s just me, I’d rather spend my energy creating than hating.

The energy you keep is the energy you’re feeding yourself, make sure it’s good.

You can’t live a positive life with a negative mind set and environment, trust me. I’ve tried. And no matter how hard you push, no matter how hard you work on yourself, your environment plays a HUGE part in your outcome and your mental health. So stay healthy, and that includes keeping positive people around you.

This is my manifestation for this week — a reminder to reach out to my loved ones when I feel like I’m struggling.

Animal Crossing Update (2)

I totally started this as to be a weekly thing and it just didn’t work out that way.

I’ve beat the game and I’ve honestly been time traveling like crazy. I just get so bored staying still. But also I want to design my island a certain way so I keep hopping to Nov in search of the mushroom diy’s. I know this is gonna kill my fun when Nov actually comes, but I’m impatient.

I’ve also cycled through a few villagers recently. I’m trying to get different personality types to get their diy’s before I actually go for my dreamies. But it is nice to stumble on one that ends up being a dreamie; like Chrissy and Peck were mystery island finds and I love them both so much. Filbert was one of my starters and he’s absolutely not going anywhere.

Monday Mindful Manifestation

This morning I thought of something I wanted to manifest and wanted to share it on my blog; maybe every week I’ll make it a point to think of what I want to manifest for that week or even just that day.

I admit that I absolutely tend to care what people say or think about me. Sometimes a little too much. There was a time I legitimately didn’t care cause I was either so self confident in myself or too full of myself to even believe them; I often miss those days and wonder where they went — but tbh they were the last days before anxiety crept into my life and changed everything.

It’s been over 10 years since then and my name has been dragged through the mud so much since. Between ex boyfriends and ex husbands who tell reverse tales of what really happened, to ex and current in laws who shame me for speaking about mental health and sharing my stories (which to them makes me “full of shit” and a bad mom).

I know you can’t please everyone and the ones who know you best will always know who you truly are despite what anyone says about you; but it does bother me. And it does take a lot of my thought process and healing space.

So this week, I’m manifesting the quote above; people will always have something to say about you, but what they say and what they think is none of your business in the first place.

What I think about myself is my business.

What are you hoping to manifest this week?

3 New Animal Crossing New Horizons Features I’m Excited About

I wish I had jumped on the Animal Crossing New Horizons train when I had planned to on its launch day but my husband was so set on getting me a Switch I skipped getting one myself, turns out that didn’t happen so I missed launch day. Turns out I missed the Easter and the Cherry Blossom events. A friend of mine time travel’s and let’s me relive those events though lol.

There are a lot of new and exciting features in Animal Crossing New Horizons that haven’t been included in the previous games. And a ton I’m super excited about!

Crafting

img_0511

Give me a game where I can fish, gather and craft and I’ll be hooked. And good graphics cause I can’t with Harvest Moon as hard as I try and Stardew Valley.

But the fact that they included crafting in Animal Crossing is like, a dream come true! I’ve been farming DIY cards like crazy! I know you can get two a day from your neighbors, there’s usually one a day on the beach and I even go to mystery island’s hoping to find bottled messages there as well! I haven’t gotten any from balloons lately which sucks. I’m currently looking for the iron stuff to finish my kitchen but I’m missing 2 of the other DIY cards needed to make it, freakin lame.

The cool thing is you can make things like fences, tools, stuff for your house and pretty stuff with the flowers. Not to mention all the pretty seasonal stuff you can craft as well with things like Cherry Blossoms, Acorns and Bamboo!

The only downside is things that are craftable can’t be placed in your purchase catalog for later.

Custom Clothing

I feel like fashion is the true end game here (and in FFXIV, lets be real). Once you unlock The Able Sisters there’s a kiosk in the back of the shop where you can access thousands of customs people created. From clothes to bedsheets to phone cases and even different types of paths! The possibilities for customization is now endless in this game and a lot of us are here for it!

This Cheshire Cat dress + hat was a custom I had found on Instagram; if you’re curious about my sources I have an Outfit Of The Day stories highlight on my Animal Crossing Instagram! I’m having so much fun dressing my character up!

But besides that, The Able Sisters also now have a dressing room where you can view even MORE clothing they offer! There’s some pretty nice pieces. I found a bunch of outfits that closely resemble Disney characters.

For example, every piece for these two outfits were bought from The Able Sisters shop. I honestly can’t wait to see what others seasonal outfits they’ll come out with!

Terraforming

We now have the option to create as well as get rid of any cliffs or ponds or lakes we want to! That is seriously ground breaking!

This gives you the ability to COMPLETELY transform your island HOWEVER you want, WHENEVER you want! You can create more waterfalls or take away waterfalls. I’ve seen some pretty awesome terraforming with other peoples islands and though I’m not artsy like that, I’m definitely trying!

You’re also given a handful of different types of grounding and paths. Allowing you to create pathways or even streets if you wanted to! There’s also the option of custom flooring, like the one above.

Honorable Mention

AUTO SAVE.

Anyone else get paranoid about not saving a game because of that damn funky beaver who use to pop up next to your house AND YELL AT YOU FOR NOT SAVING YOUR GAME? Cause yah, same.

But in this game there’s a lot of times it autosaves and not just that but if you’re doing anything regarding going online it saves the game for you. Oh the little luxuries in life!

I’m having so much fun playing Animal Crossing and I’m borderline obsessed (as I always end up getting like over any Animal Crossing game)! My 22 year old heart is bursting with the fact that this installment has a legit community! I started a blog for my Animal Crossing WILD WORLD game back in 2006 to keep track of my progress with catching bugs and fish but there wasn’t a platform for it or for gaming blogs really in general back then! It’s crazy to see how technology changes things in a matter of years!

With that said I have an Animal Crossing Instagram as well as a Twitter. They’re also good places to find a lot of inspo and custom designs!

May The 4th Be With You ✨

If there’s one solid tradition Bubba and I have kept our entire relationship it’s celebrating May The 4th. I’m such a huge Star Wars fan and I miss when they had Star Wars weekends at Hollywood Studios parks! Those were so fun!

I haven’t been able to get back to the parks since Star Wars land has opened but believe me, I am  counting. down. until. I. do!

Bubba went all out for this years May The 4th celebration; we actually celebrated on the 2nd since he works on the 4th but he cooked up a whole spread of different foods.

Weekly Animal Crossing Update (1)

2020-04-14 12.12.18-2

Okay call me obsessed, but! Back when I played Animal Crossing Wild World on the Nintendo DS back in 2006 I had an Animal Crossing blog — I don’t remember what it was called or what the URL is but I really wish I did!

I was so obsessed with the fact that you coulda catch and collect bugs, fossils and fish. Not only that but this owl who runs the museum you donate these things to tells you these really small cute facts about all of them! I played for years, almost daily, okay pretty much daily. And I maxed out my town. I even went out and bought a GameCube to play the first Animal Crossing game. When I say I was obsessed, I was o b s e s s e d.

When Animal Crossing New Leaf came out around 2013, I did the same thing. I  think I have ACWW with me here but I’m not sure. I do know FOR SURE that ACNL is in my DS.

I played Animal Crossing City Folk and that feels like it was  forever ago. I skipped Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer but I did get Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival which was really just a huge ass board game.

Then I told myself I wasn’t going to get a Nintendo Switch until they announced a new Animal Crossing game and when they did, I gave in and bought one.

Gaming is so different when you’re older and have a kid. I can’t just drop $60 in hopes to like a game like I use to. Now I take SO LONG wondering if I’ll like a game and if I’ll realistically commit the time it takes to play it and a million other things before actually BUYING a game. It sucks. I miss the more carefree days lol.
