Quirky Valentine's Cards

I am a huge fan of novelty greeting cards. Since I've been with my boyfriend (over 2 years now) I've made it my mission to get him a unique card for every possible celebration there is. Etsy is a WONDERLAND for cards like this. It's just nice to put a little personal spin on the card, as cards just normally get looked at and that's about it. But I like to keep any unique ones that I have some sort of personal connection to.

Another reason to think about getting a novelty card is that Etsy is full of talented artists. I can definitely see the positives in spending £2/£3 knowing that it's a person's own artwork, I fucking love helping any smaller business that needs it . It's so worth the extra couple of quid and let's be honest, the person you're buying it for is worth it. Right?

I thought I'd pick out a couple of ones that I really am loving this year, there really is an endless list of cards you can find on there so go crazy and have a look yourself!

Animal Crossing 2019

The moment Animal Crossing was announced for Nintendo Switch, the world lost. their. shit. Including myself, someone who didn't even own a Switch at this point. The hype was here and rightfully so, AC has been an incredible addition to the gaming world, going all the way back to 2001 when it was first introduced. Wow I feel super old, 2005 being the first release on Nintendo DS, 10 year old me was addicted from the get go. A mini world full of adorable animals with day to day tasks to keep you occupied and addicted for a good portion of your free time. Which I had a lot of, lets face it I've spent a good portion of my life playing Video Games, no regrets.

So what can we expect from this new Animal Crossing? I was super curious to know what this new game would entail, I think we all were. STILL ARE. WHERE'S THE NEWS NINTENDO? WE'RE WAITING. IT'S 2019 ALREADY. WE'RE READY. Uh... Yeah, I think that sums up how we're all feeling right at this moment. In the meantime I thought I'd share some thoughts into what I hope to see in the new game.

LDN Adventures

I love a good old trip to London. I've been a handful of times now and I enjoy it more and more every time. London is a very busy place and I never used to be good in stressful and busy situations like that but there's something about London that helps me feel a bit more calm, odd I know. I love using the Underground too! I've been to a couple cities around Europe that uses Underground trains so I'm used to the mad rush that comes with using the them.

This time I was heading down to London for the NBA Game that was taking place this year. I luckily managed to grab two seats for me and my Boyfriend who is a huge fan of Basketball, pretty chuffed considering it was the only event to come to The UK this year! We had a fantastic time at the game, our seats were pretty impressive too. I must admit I spent a good portion of the evening trying to scope out any famous faces and I did manage to see a few!

We also managed to go to a fun little Avengers exhibition that was in London whilst we were staying there, we always try and find something cool to go and see and this definitely was that.

I thought I'd show you some photos I managed to take while I was on my travels!
