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.

A Few Of My Favourite iPhone Apps

I am definitely one of those people who’s obsessed with their devices. The very first thing I do in the morning is check my phone and the last things that I do before going to sleep is check I won’t miss out on anything. Even if I wake up in the night, I have a quick scroll through Twitter and Instagram before trying to get back to sleep. Do you do this too?

Even though I probably spend way too much time on my iPhone, I thought I would share some of my favourite apps with you all so that you can all become addicted too.

I try to mix my iPhone full of fun apps and app that make me be productive so I figured that I would show you a few from each of these types.

How To Spend Time Without Your Phone

Is your phone the first thing you reach for in the morning and the last thing you touch before bed? Do you frequently pick it up ‘just to check’, only to look up forty-five minutes later wondering where the time has gone?

If you do, then you’re like the 99% (this is not a fact, don’t quote me) of people who are also addicted to their phones. They are our life these days. They are full of all our details, plans and banking so we would be pretty messed up without them.

Apps I Can’t Get Enough Of

Everyday, I think about how great phones are and everything that we are able to do because of them. There are days that I am sick of my phone and want to dump it in the bin but that’s a whole different story. For the most part, I love my phone and I’m very attached to it.

My phone is a huge part of my life and what I do. As you know, my dream is to be a full time blogger or to work with social media. Which means that I spend a lot of time on my phone. I just can’t be without it.

WordPress

As you probably know, I blog through WordPress. That means that WordPress is the most important app that I can have. It’s useful for just checking on my stats throughout the day or writing some notes or a quick draft for a blog post.

Unfold

I use Instagram Stories a lot more than uploading to my Instagram feed. I find posting to my feed is just too much commitment. Maybe that’s why I enjoy using stories more. But don’t get me wrong, I still want my stories to look good which is why I use Unfold. It’s easy to use and helps to create pretty stories.

Wunderlist

If you love lists as much as I do then you’ll love this app. You can create lists for all kind of things. You can even set reminders so that you never forget anything.

VSCO

This is my favourite app for editing photos. You can add filters, make your photos brighter or adjust the colour of photos. I find that it’s such an easy app to use and I’m definitely addicted to it. I use it to edit every single photo I take.

A Month With My 6th Gen iPad

It’s been a whole month since I bought my latest piece of technology and I’m still obsessed.

It’s all down to a Sky TV advert really. They were advertising the new iPad super cheap on TV so Simon and I knew that we had to get one each.

I bought the Gold 6th Gen iPad (9.7″) and I love it. It’s cheap and cheerful and great for blogging.

When I first got the iPad, air was shocked at how heavy it was. I think that was because I was used to using a MacBook Air though. Over time, I got used to the iPad being heavier and I don’t even notice it anymore.

The gold colour on the back of the iPad is absolutely stunning. It’s shiny and pretty and I just love it. It makes me feel classy for using it.

My absolute favourite thing about this iPad is that it is compatible with the Apple Pencil. I’m going to do so much drawing hen I eventually get the money to start drawing and get a pencil.

There are two things that I’m not a huge fan of though. The first one is the camera and then second is the keyboard.

The camera quality is pretty poor but I suppose that you don’t really buy an iPad for taking photos and doing photography.

The keyboard has to be Bluetooth as it doesn’t connect to a normal Apple Keyboard. I suppose on the plus side of this, the keyboard will be a lot cheaper and I could probably pick up a good one on eBay.

My favourite thing to do on this iPad is play games. Why are games so much more fun on a big screen?!

Have you ever tried the iPad 6th gen? If you have, let me know what you think of it.

Top 5 Animation Shows

I love animations. I don’t watch much tv but when I do it’s probably an animation show.

I wanted to talk a little bit about my top cartoons/animations. I thought it would be fun for you to find some to watch too through my recommendations.

Gravity Falls

This is definitely my absolutely favourite animation show. It follows the story of Mable and Dipper who go to stay with their Uncle Stan for the summer. They get up to all kinds of crazy things and they discover that Gravity Falls is not normal at all.

Mable is the cutest character ever and I would love to cosplay her one day. She has an adorable fashion sense and is super kind and funny. Uncle Stan is grumpy which brings a lot of humour to the show. Dipper is funny too but in a completely different way to Uncle Stan.

Hilda

I only started this show a few months ago but I’ve already watched it all… twice. Hilda, a fearless blue-haired girl, travels from a wilderness full of elves and giants to a bustling city packed with new friends and mysterious creatures. We follow her adventures and it’s just so fun.

Steven Universe

‘Weeeeee… are the crystal gems….’ But anyway, I adore this show. The animations are adorable and everyone can relate to a different character in some kind of way. I’m definitely a combo of Steven and Amethyst but maybe with a bit more Amethyst.

The Crystal Gems are a group of magical bearings who’s job is to save the universe. They have a half magical being called Steven who is like the little brother of the group.

Aggretsuko

I finished season one of this show just the other day and I loved it. With each episode only being 15 minutes long, it made the show easier to digest which was good for my short attention span.

Aggretsuko follows Retsuko ass she deals with her accounting day job and her horrible boss by singing heavy metal karaoke.

She-Ra

Now, I wasn’t sure if I should include this show in my list as I only just started it but it was so much fun during the first few episodes so I wanted to include it.

She-Ra, Princess of Power, leads a rebellion to free her land of Etheria from the monstorus invaders the Horde. My favourite character is Glimmer and she is fun and adorable.

Aggretsuko Season One Review (Spoilers)

I literally had no idea that I would love a cutesy/death-metal show as much as I did. But anyway, let’s review the show.

Each episode of the show is only 15-minutes long which is great because it can keep my attention all the way though and it is easy to binge watch.

Retsuko is a red panda who started her accounting job with high hopes and positivity. Now that she has worked there for a while, the spark has gone and she isn’t feeling so great about her job. After a hard day of work, Retsuko going to sing death metal karaoke. However, no one knows about this, not even her friends from work.

While she sings karaoke death metal, she sings all about how much she hates her boss. Mr. Ton is at pig who serves as the series’ primary antagonist, and while he makes for an appropriately awful representation of the worst kind of boss it makes the show that little bit funnier.

As the show goes on, Retsuko finds hope as she sees chances of leaving her job, love and friendship.

I watched the show in English but I wish I watched it in Japanese with English subtitles as someone else has said that it’s the better way to do it.

For literally all of the show, I was glued to the screen. I loved the friendship that developed between Washimi and Gori. They are two of the office’s most awesome ladies and even though they didn’t seem approachable at first, the three of them made a great friendship group.

Another thing that I loved was that even though Retsuko’s life seemed to be a little rubbish, she still had positive things happen to her. She started yoga, made new friends and even found romance.

The season ended with the possibility of romance between Retsuko and Haida, Retsuko’s hyena coworker. They seems like a super cute couple which warms my heart.

Aggretsuko is an excellent series that anyone who loves good comedy and great characters can enjoy, even if they’re not necessarily an anime fan.
