Games to Revisit in March

First let me say that Resident Evil took over my gaming schedule, and I normally don’t get into DLCs but for this game it was worth it. I highly recommend checking them out, great game. Secondly, I want to mention an article I wrote on Creators website about 3 RPG Maker games that gave “weird” a new definition if you are interested please give it a read and let me know what you think of it.

Now onto the main topic of this post, last month I chose games with cutesy love stories which are mostly JRPGs for the sake of the month. This month I decided to choose something I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite genre but worth to waste time on which is Dating Simulation games. I don’t really play them often in fact it’s more like rarely but I decided to choose them for this month so I could try new things.

Mystic Messenger

You were looking for an app, just to kill some time, and stumbled upon an app called “Mystic Messenger”. It sounded interesting so you downloaded it.

Once you opened it, you found yourself chatting with someone nicknamed “Unknown”. They persuaded you to go to some studio apartment.

As soon as you walked into to the apartment, your app is suddenly connected to a mystic group chat with attractive guys!? After a long chat, they ask you to join their secret party planning association called RFA…

This game has made me check my phone every 5 seconds because it’s honestly too addicting and I like the concept it looks and feels like an actual chatroom app with messages, emails and calls. I really enjoyed playing it but I also hated the weird timings those chatroom starts because it gives you a notification about it and after an hour or two I guess it becomes unavailable like you missed it, which annoyed me since I get notifications about a chatroom at 3 am every night. I liked the characters because they were quite relatable and fun to talk to even though the replies are programmed, it gave them a more realistic human element.

Hustle Cat

You are Avery Grey, the newest employee at a popular cat cafe called A Cat’s Paw. The coffee’s good and the staff is friendly (and kinda cute!) but mysterious. One day, you find a strange book in the basement, with letters you can’t quite read…

I’m a cat person so this game easily grabbed my attention. It goes into a visual novel style of game with the traditional routes of each character where it also gives the player a choice of being “he” “she” or “they” which is something new for me to see in any game to be honest. I highly recommend trying this game if you are into visual novels.

Hope you enjoyed this post, I tried choosing games out of my usual selection since I played way too many games and I love sharing my thoughts about games. Thanks for reading and have a great day.

Pusheen Birthday Party

IMG_6535

I’ve been planning for my son’s first birthday party for about two months now, I know it seems like such a long time but things kept happening from the beginning of this year that I had to delay the party till Friday few days ago. Originally my son’s actual birthday is 7th of January so to delay it two months later, was a bit stressful for me.

As I mentioned in a post back in January, I planned the theme of the party to be Pusheen themed because my son acts practically like a cat sometimes. I ordered the birthday supplies from John Lewis online store and they came pretty fast, they are in great quality and everyone loved it.

I filled these cute grab bags for children with candy and some toys, I ordered almost 60 bags and they were all taken which I wasn’t expecting to be honest. I ordered the cake from Gateaux and they did an amazing job.

IMG_6508

The upper cake was vanilla and the lower one was chocolate, according to the guests it tasted great and I was too sad I never really had the chance to try it out but you know guests come first. The house was filled with people and children which is a first since my in laws house is empty almost every day considering a three story house.

IMG_6482

Honestly I had a slight anxiety attack before the guests arrived because I hate socializing and I get scared in crowds, I usually avoid such events but I wanted to go out of my comfort zone and do something for my son. All and all guests were happy and pleased with the whole event, it was nice to plan something like this.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day.

Inkbox – The 2 Week Tattoo Review

I’ve always wanted to have a tattoo but for religious reasons I can’t so obviously I would search for alternatives even if they weren’t permanent but at least I would cross it off my bucket list. I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a sponsored ad in my feed of Inkbox and I was instantly interested since it was about tattoos that would last 2 weeks or more so I decided to try it out and see for myself if it was worth it.

Inkbox has a organic formula basically and it’s from an indigenous tribes from the Panama who have been tattooing their skin with the pulp of a fruit which is called Genipapo or Huito. I thought it was similar to henna since we used it as well and it gives a stain to the skin but not as black as this one so they are a bit different.

I ordered two tattoos to try out which are the Gualaca and Memento Mori, so I tried out Gualaca first which looks like this basically.

gualaca

It’s small and easy to place so I tried it on my shoulder and followed the instructions that came in the box with the whole kit. It doesn’t show instantly, it takes about 12 to 36 hours to fully become black and dark. The only mistake I did was when I was pressing the cloth on the tattoo, I readjust it few times which made the ink stain my skin on the outer parts of the tattoo and it looked like I’ve spray painted it with a stencil.

Knowing that mistake, I decided to do the second tattoo on my arm the next day. The box basically comes like this.

img_6375

The tattoo was bigger than the stars one I mentioned earlier so it took more space. Again I followed the instructions but this time I tried keeping the cloth in place. The whole process isn’t painful at all but I would say peeling the sticker of the tattoo when I was done was painful kinda.

Here’s the tattoo I tried.

memento_mori

Here’s how it looked like right after I peeled the sticker when I was done.

img_6376

And here’s how it looked like 12 hours later.

img_6378

I don’t why it spilled a bit of a leak on “Mori” but other than that I am so in love with it and it made me want to make it permanent because I’ve always wanted a tattoo of “Memento Mori”

and here’s how it looks like after two days

img_6397

Gualaca was $19 and Memento Mori was $23

As for how long these tattoos lasted, I noticed Memento Mori faded a lot faster than the stars. I could say they started to fade after the first week so I guess it satisfied the “2 Week Tattoo” part. In terms of color, The stars were a bit more black than Memento Mori which seemed more blue. I don’t know if it’s related to the skin type, location or even the pressure done when I applied them in the first place.

Overall, I’m honestly in love with these tattoos and I’m going to try different designs obviously and order more from the website.

Thank you for reading and have a great day.

Let me apologize for spamming this blog with subscription boxes in the past two weeks, I got them all in the same time couple of weeks ago so I scheduled them to be published as I tested them out. OwlCrate February box is filled with delicious items that fits the theme of the month “Run Away With The Circus

Fun & Games Page Flags by Girl of all Work

These page flags look so cute, they are quite thick as well. Let me stick them everywhere now.

Midway Mini Donuts Lip Balm by Geek Fire Labs

This item is exclusive to OwlCrate. As you can see it has donuts so it smells delicious, probably gonna hold myself from eating it since I’m on a diet and I love donuts.

Le Cirque des Reves candle by Frostbeard Studio

Also another exclusive item and like the previous one it smells delicious and it makes me hungry every time I smell it. It has scents of caramel popcorn, roasted chestnuts and bonfire fragrances so yeah thanks for ruining my diet OwlCrate.

Deck of Paper Notepad by Attic Journals

The next item is this notepad which is made of scrap papers and casino discards, it’s perfect size to keep in your bag.

Night Circus inspired tote bag by Evie Bookish

So let me just say I love everything by Evie Bookish, I think she’s really talented and I’ve loved every item sent out from OwlCrate by her so this would definitely be my favorite item from this box.

Finally book of the month and wow it’s so glossy and glittery.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Whatever you’ve heard about Caraval, it doesn’t compare to the reality. It’s more than just a game or a performance. It’s the closest you’ll ever find to magic in this world . . .

Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over.

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.

Welcome, welcome to Caraval . . . beware of getting swept too far away.

So reading this small summary, instantly made me think of the anime Mirai Nikki (Future Diary) for some reason I really don’t know why but this sounds so exciting and I’ve read so many great reviews on this book so I’m really excited to start reading it.

As usual the book came with a letter from the author and also a signed bookplate. A quote card which looks great and glossy -I’ve said this word so many times now- and also a digital card which has a redeemable code so you could listen to a sneak peak of the audiobook.

Overall, this box was full of delicious goodness and I love everything in it because it totally ruined my diet.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day.

GLOSSYBOX – February 2017

img_6313

Glossybox is here and it’s so beautiful with the flowery design, it’s not exactly my cup of tea because it’s too girly for my taste. I guess they did it in a way for Valentine’s day with the hashtag #adoreGLOSSY, so it’s pink and flowery, full of love and gifts sort of?

Anyway let’s get to the unboxing …

img_6314

Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat

The first item is a nail product, it has keratin so it’ll obviously strengthen the nails. When I applied it on my nails, it made my them look more shiny like a clear nail polish but also it has a hint of pink so it looked more natural. It’s written that you should apply it weekly to make the nails more healthier so I’ll test it out in the upcoming weeks to see the effect.

Jeanne Arthes L’Eau De Rose

This perfume smells absolutely amazing, it definitely smells like roses and it’s pretty light. It came in a full size I think, but it fits to be kept in my bag which is great for me.

The Estée Edit Pink Peony Overnight Water Pack 

It’s a water-gel mask that has also pink peony, goji berry, blueberry and cranberry which you can clearly smell when you open it. I used it at night before going to bed and it didn’t seem like it’s working honestly but it did however make my skin more rosy the next morning.

Schwarzkopf Professional BC Repair Rescue Deep Nourishing Treatment

I really love trying out hair-care products because as you know I dye my hair constantly so it’s a bit damaged, I keep trying serums and conditioners to return the healthy glow. I recently did my second Pure Brazilian treatment so my hair is healthy again and softer than before, trying this product won’t show any result on me at the moment so I decided to give it to my sisters and I’ll update this part when they tell me their result.

Eve by Eve’s Eyebrow Definer

I don’t really use eyebrow products anymore since my eyebrows are naturally shaped and I always thread them every month. The product is double ended with a brush and a pen, it’s smudge-proof  and long-lasting but I’ll give it to my sisters probably since I’m not going to use it.

Overall, Glossybox never really disappointed me so far. They always send out amazing products that I really enjoy and sometimes give out to others.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day.
