ACNH Custom Designs

Hi all!

As I’ve mentioned previously, Animal Crossing has been my favorite pastime since COVID started. I’m really enjoying the custom design tool, so I wanted to share a few of my creations with you! These designs have been made over the course of two separate islands (so there are two different creator codes).

Have you made any custom designs in ACNH? Which are your favorites to create with?

If you end up using any of these designs, I would love to see!

DIY | Halloween Mario BOO Ghosts

Hi everyone and happy almost Halloween! I’ve been sitting on this DIY for a couple of years now and just haven’t gotten around to sharing it.

You can make this super easy DIY Mario BOO decoration just in time for Halloween! I’t so simple and anyone can make it.

YOU WILL NEED:

Kyla Is Inspired | Mario BOO Ghost DIY

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Download the Boo template
  2. Cut out your Boo shape in the white foam
  3. Using the glitter Mod Podge, apply a thin coat along the foam. I did 2 coats – you can add more depending on desired sparkle level
  4. I applied the glitter paint in select areas – along Boo’s tail and bottom to give some sparkle “shading”. This paint has large flecks of silver sparkle, so it will apply a bit chunkier than all over Mod Podge.
  5. Using the template as a guide, use a sharpie to draw in his face and arm.
  6. Make as many Boo’s as you want!

Geeky Cocktail | Overwatch Meet Me In Paris

OMG am I back with another geeky cocktail? You bet I am! To stick in the theme of previous drinks, this falls in line with Overwatch’s brand new Paris Map!

Geeky Cocktail | Overwatch Meet Me In Paris

This cocktail uses two french liquors: Champagne and Chambord, a raspberry liqueur from the Loire Valley of France. I remember when I first heard this ordered out; I immediately had to try it myself! It’s kind of a classic for me. Pair these together for one very french cocktail to cheers the new Overwatch map!

Geeky Cocktail | Overwatch Meet Me In Paris

You will need:
  • Champagne
  • Chambord
  • Cranberry juice
  • Raspberries for garnish

Geeky Cocktail | Overwatch Meet Me In Paris

For this drink, fill your champagne flute about 3/4 of the way full. Add 1/2 shot of cranberry juice and about a teaspoon of the Chambord (any more and the drink will be too sweet!) Top with a few raspberries, and enjoy!

As always, if you make this drink, let me know! I’d love to hear or see how it turned out. And let me know if you’ve been playing the new Paris map! Do you love it?

Happy Friday | E3 Edition

Happy Friday everyone! I haven’t been posting a lot these past few months, and it’s been a year since I’ve done a Friday post. And since this past week has been E3, I thought it fitting to share some of my thoughts!

I’m not a huge gamer by any means; I play a few games here and there but there are some things I’m excited about.

Happy Friday!
Happy Friday | E3 Edition

CYBERPUNK 2077
It’s no secret I love all thing future, space, and sci-fi…and this trailer had me DYING of excitement. I remember hearing about this game years ago but writing it off since it was apparently first announced in 2012. When I saw this again at E3 I knew I needed to play it whenever it comes out.

ASSASSIN’S CREED ODYSSEY
I admit I only play the Assassin’s Creed games to free run and explore the different locations but I LOVE that they’ve included Kassandra as a main character. I’m guilty of playing games based on characters alone and she seems pretty amazing. Not to mention the romance factor of this game, which is intriguing!

SUPER SMASH BROS
I love that they added Daisy to Super Smash (or in my case, super mash buttons since I’m terrible at it haha)!! I’m itching to cosplay her (since I’ve cosplayed both Peach & Rosalina) even if her dress is a replica of Peach’s :P I don’t play Smash often but I’m excited about the new princess. Also, can we talk about Zelda’s new outfit?? Gorgeous!

If you watched or read about E3 coverage, what games are you most excited to play?

Do you play Overwatch? If so, who do you main? I technically have the most hours on Lucio but both Mercy and Mei are becoming my go-to ladies.

While this drink is great for a hot summer day, I’m personally ready for cooler weather and for the heat to end. But might as well enjoy this while the weather holds – cheers to the weekend!
