First Week Of Spring ♥ Weekly Thoughts

Weekly Thoughts
#1 It's finally Spring my favorite season! The weather, pastel colors and floral frilly fashion I love everything about Spring!

#2 It was national puppy day yesterday. I don' have many photos of Lucy (Will post some on my Instagram later today) when she was a puppy but she's a small dog so she always looks like a puppy anyways. lol

#3 As I told you last weekend I started watching the drama Goblin and I thought it would be fun to give you small updates on here every week because it takes me forever to finish a drama. I am only 2 episodes in so I don't have that much to say but let's just say the main relationship is kind of uncomfortable to watch. I really hope they skip a couple years so that the girl ages a couple years because if not than this is only going to be just like the drama Big (Which is funny because Gong Yoo is also in that drama).

#4 Last weekend I ordered some new clothes. Whenever I have extra cash I usually spend it on skincare, makeup or something useless. Because of this I always wear the same 6 pieces of clothing so I'm glad to have finally get some new Spring clothing.

#5 IU pre-released a new song from her upcoming album. I'm so ready to hear some new music from IU she's one of my favorite Korean singers!

#6 This week I ran out cleanser, eye cream and emulsion. I go through skincare pretty fast but when multiple products run out at the same time it can be annoying. This means a skincare haul is on the way!

#7 I am pretty sure that my room is connected to a different universe because there are times when I drop things on the floor and they magically disappear. For example, once I dropped a flower pot (One of those clay colored pots that you can get at Michael's) and looked everywhere and couldn't find it anywhere! I've rearranged my room tons of times but never found it. WHERE DID IT GO!?! This recently happened when I was giving Lucy a treat. I keep a couple treats in my room for when Lucy comes into my room and the other day I dropped one on the floor (She didn't see it) and it was gone! Another time I threw one on my bed and Lucy kept sniffing for it and she never found it. Why does this only happen in my room? Does this happen to anyone else or is my room just part of another world?

Morning & Evening Tag

AM/PM Tag
The other day I saw this tag and had such enjoyment reading that post that I decided to tag myself in and share some morning and evening questions with you all.

AM
1. What's your beauty morning routine?
I start by splashing cold water on my face to wake myself up. Next, I use toner, leftover sheet mask essence, emulsion, moisturizer, eye cream and finish off with sunscreen. For specific details, you can read my morning skincare routine here.

2. What's for breakfast?
If I'm working I usually will have some yogurt with a banana. On days I stay at home I will take some extra time and cook some oatmeal on the stove with fruit - my go-to breakfast.

3. Coffee or tea?
Both! How could I pick just one! I prefer coffee more though but lately, I've been enjoying London fogs.

4. How long does it take you to get out the door?
Depends on how I woke up but usually less than 30 minutes.

5. What's your go-to makeup look on a fuss-free morning?
BB Cream or a cushion, concealer, brows, mascara and some lip tint.

AM/PM Tag
PM
1. What's your evening beauty routine?
My nighttime skincare routine is extremely lengthy! I follow the 10-step Korean skincare routine so it would be really confusing if I talk about here so I will post a night routine soon.

2. Snack time! What's in the bowl?
Whatever is around. lol

3. How do you wind down and prep for bed?
Wash my face, place a sheet mask on and play Animal Crossing until the mask dries.

4. Cozy up! What are you wearing to sleep?
A PINK sweatshirt and some legging blacks.

5. What are some things you have to do before hitting the hay?
Spray some lavender chamomile pillow mist, apply some foot lotion and snuggle next to Lucy.

Pokemon Sun and Moon ♥ Game Review

Pokemon Sun and Moon Review
The other day I was watching Cake Wars and they were making cakes inspired by Pokemon, that's when I remembered I still hadn't posted my Pokemon Sun/Moon review! I preordered Pokemon Moon and received it the day after it was released. I didn't know much about the main story before playing which made the game more of a surprise and delightful. The only thing I did know was what the 3 starters and trainers looked like. With that said, I still haven't finished playing the entire game yet but I will cover all the main parts and whether it's worth playing or not. Surely you enjoy this review even though it's a long overdue. Better late than never, right? hehe

Pokemon Sun and Moon Review
Pokemon Sun and Moon Review
You start off in the Alola region which is made up of four main islands. Of course with every new Pokemon game means tons of new Pokemon! Starting with the three main starters Rowlet, Litten and Popplio (Guess who I picked?). Once you pick your companion you to will have the cutest first encounter ever and set forth your adventures.

Unlike in other Pokemon games, you don't go around battling gym leaders instead you go on trials. In these trials, you are tested and have to battle powerful captains who will reward you if you manage to complete said trails. When I first learned about the trials I was really disappointed to learn this because I was looking forward to the epic gym encounters. However, don't be deceived some of the trails can be quite challenging! Whilst on your journey you will encounter some ruffians from Team Skull who will try to sidetrack you from your main objective.

Overall thoughts, well I actually liked the Alola region more then I thought I would. I'm not a huge fan of tropical areas but the island(s) quickly grew on me. The new Pokemon additions were charming (I definitely found some new favorites, like Mimikyu). I also love the new battle system and how you can look around your area as you battle opponents. Speaking of battles, you get some special move called z-moves which are powerful attacks your Pokemon can use whilst in battle. Another new addition to Pokemon Sun/Moon are Poke rides. These are a new form of transportation that you can get through the Alola region. You can pick specific Pokemon (which you don't even need to catch) to transport you faster on land water or even in the sky!

The only downside that I can think of is that the story is longer then I would've liked, which is something that a lot of other players complained about as well. There are so many cut scenes that interrupt you on your journey. Aside from that, I can't think of anything major that bothered me.

You can purchase Pokemon Moon here.
