What's up, my people?! Realised today that it's been a very long time since I've done one of these posts, and today in particular has not been a very good day for me. The only thing that really had me feeling better was finding these mega-adorable collectable dolls on the internet, and that suddenly inspired me to do a round-up of a few things that I have been mooning over recently. You'd think looking at a bunch of cool stuff on the internet that I can't afford would put me in a worse mood, but it's somehow started to cheer me up a little. I think the reason is because I felt the sudden urge to connect with others over the cuteness of those dolls, and wanting to connect with others, especially my fellow iggles, is always the best cure for what ails me 😊
#5 Momiji Dolls! Gotta love targeted ads on Facebook Messenger! 😂 These dolls are beyond adorable, and one really cool thing about them is that there is a little open compartment under the dolls' feet where you can slip in a personalised message for one of your friends :) There's all kinds of these super cute designs and they've been around for years. I may not be able to afford one of these adorable figures just yet but I maaaay have signed up for their online newsletter - at least I'll be notified each time they release more cuteness for sale 😋
#4: Chaotic Good by Whitney Gardner! Technically I probably shouldn't include this book on this list, since I'm probably going to be in possession of it within a few days. I've been trying my absolute hardest to save money, and one of the things I've had to cut back on significantly are book purchases. However, I have a long bus trip to and from Toronto coming up, so I justified that purchasing a new book would be in my best interest. And yes, I usually get a little motion sick while reading in a moving vehicle, but... well... I want a book XD Plus even with all of the audio books I have to listen to, the last time I was on the bus I found that it was very difficult to hear them, even when my phone's volume was cranked up all the way.
#3: New Student-Themed Happy Planner Sticker Packs! My main form of paper crafting right now is decorating my happy planner each week. Even though I'm not a student anymore, I know for a fact that I would find multiple uses for all of these super cute stickers. I have a bit of an addiction to these value sticker packs. I've tried to carry all of them in a messenger bag that I bring with me to my boyfriend's house whenever I'm visiting him on a weekend and know that I want to get into some planning fun before the start of a new week, and the bag is extremely heavy. Not only that, but I recently ordered 4 new books (not these ones) and I can already tell that there's no way I can fit them into the same bag XD Will need to figure out another method to travel with a massive quantity of sticker packs...
#2: Kigurumi/Cute But Deadly Murloc Onesie! Yes, I am still obsessed with the idea of owning some form of animal onesie. I've been browsing Kigurumi's online selection for a number of years now, and I even conducted a poll right here on the blog to try and determine which one I should get, but I could never bring myself to spend the money on one of these, even though I know I'd put it to good use. My mother is afraid that if I ever bought one of these I would go out in public wearing it, and that's simply not the case; I would reserve my animal/mythical creature onesie for high anxiety days where all I want to do is curl up on the couch with blankets and snacks and as many cuddles from my boyfriend as I can get. With my reignited obsession with World of Warcraft, I think a Murloc onesie might be a good fit for me - not to mention Hazel from Hazelnuttygames also has one of these, and I'd love to be more like her 💜
#1: Elgato HD60 S Capture Card!!! This little beauty absolutely deserves the #1 spot on the list, which easily explains why I've been trying to convince my closest family members to buy me one of these as an early birthday present. Basically, with this capture card, I would be able to both record and stream gameplay videos from some of my favorite consoles, from the Nintendo Wii/Game Cube to the Xbox 360 to the Nintendo 3DS, and even my Nintendo Switch (and possibly my boyfriend's PS4, assuming he's okay with it XD). I have been itching to play some of my older and most favorite games, and I think it would be twice as fun to share those experiences with others on the internet. And the earlier I can acquire this beauty, the sooner I can make those kinds of videos! 🎮
