The Legend of Zelda

Japan Haul!

I couldn’t wait another minute to share this video because it’s so late exciting!

I think you all can probably tell that life has gotten pretty busy lately, but I’m so happy that I’ve finally gotten around to editing my massive Japan haul.  I hope you enjoy!

Uniqlo x Nintendo

I’m having trouble finding the words for how perfect these Nintendo tees for Uniqlo are.  I mean, one of my favorite stores plus my absolute favorite game company… could anything be more made for me?

I have to give the credit to my fiancé for alerting me to this one.  Between the two of us, we could’ve easily bought this whole collection.  Here are my favorites!

Top Row: Pikachu Print (women); Boo print (women); Donkey Kong print (men), Animal Crossing print (kids)

Middle Row: Pikachu (men), Kirby (kids), Donkey Kong (men), Mario & Luigi pipe pocket (men)

Bottom Row: Super Mario Star (men), Pokéballs (kids), Legend of Zelda (men & women), There’s One Left Pikachu (men)

All the best tees are really the kids one, but I can try my luck at fitting in men, women, and kids!  To see them all, check out the Uniqlo site.  To see what we picked out, check out the vlog coming up tomorrow!

Which are your favorites?!

[1] Started off the month by picked up my Mew code! [2] Tried out some new fitness gear in a snowstorm; had the best workout of my life. [3] Sephora Prudential reopened, and I took the opportunity to up my skincare game. [4] My cousin had a workout-themed birthday party!  More of that here! [5] My Valentine’s present– The Legend of Zelda Symphony of the Goddess!  [6] Oops, a snapchat* cap for you… a triumphant return to running! [7] My miso soup addiction continues. [8] Peanut butter shake from Shake Shack is becoming an all-too-frequent treat. [9] A fun trip to Boston Public library to renew my library card!  More of that here!

 

Stay tuned for what I read last month!  I didn’t have as great of a month as January, but we knew that would happen, huh?  Hope March is already off to a great start for you guys!  I’ve got some fun stuff coming up and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Halloweekend Vlog

Guys, since I’m still pretending my gym relationship is going well, I at least wanted to tell you that I took a new class last week!  It’s Body Flow, which is a yoga/pilates/tai chi kind of deal.  My core finally got some attention, and I will definitely be returning.

How was everyone’s Halloweekend?!

Links For A New World [08]

snow and shells

Well, it’s been a solid 2 months since I’ve gathered links for you.  February and March were tough here in Boston, alright?

But anyway, links!

  • Majora’s Mask | This is my favorite Legend of Zelda game and one of my favorite games ever.  I didn’t put up enough fanfare about the 3DS release on this blog and I’ve literally been saving this fantastic article since it came out.  Play this game, you guys.  Especially since you’ll be waiting a while for a new one…
  • The Office | It’s been 10 years since the American version of The Office premiered.  Angela Kinsey did an awesome instagram takeover in celebration and I had so many emotions.  I love this show and this history of the Diversity Day episode really highlights what made it special.
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer | You must know by now that BtVS is my number one.  My cousin Nick sent me this article entitled Every Argument about Buffy on the Internet from 1998 until Now and I just loved it.  Had to share!
  • Narragansett | I have a lot to say about Rhode Island neighbor of mine– mostly, that I miss it horribly through all this Boston snow!  I voted for Narragansett in Coastal Living’s Happiest Seaside Town contest and you can too!
  • ‘Gansett | Narragansett beer is also on my mind lately.  Summer brews and the delicious Del’s Lemonade Shandy are hitting shelves soon to help us remember that spring is here and summer is around the corner!
  • Game of Thrones | I’m getting so pumped for April TV.  We’ve waited so long for Mad Men, Orphan Black, and Game of Thrones!  Watch the lovely Maisie Williams talk about watching the show with her family and Arya’s sword skills.
  • Grace Helbig | Ah, my spirit animal!  She’ll always be dailygrace to me, but as of next Friday night she’s on all of your TV screens on E!  Here’s Grace on Fallon being perfect.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Watercolor Pokémon & Zelda

I promised another featured art Friday Favorite, and surprise! it’s Pokémon-related.  Actually, it’s even better because it’s Pokémon meets The Legend of Zelda– my two favorite video game franchises!

Check out David Pilatowsky’s beautiful watercolor crossover artwork!

I happen to think Charmander and Squirtle make the most adorable Links, and love Horsea as Ruto!  My favorite, though, has got to be Celebi as Midna– perfection!

Which do you like best?

Sorry for the lazy Friday post, but next week will bring more things with more writing attached to them.  (This stream of consciousness sentence is how my brain works.)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Farewell February

I’m not going to lie, I’m super happy this month is over.  February was a lot of indoor living, slush and sadness.

This month has buried Boston in snow and everyone’s seasonal depression has gotten worse. I feel like I’ve been super productive lately, but all of my progress is overshadowed by the little annoyances that have crept in… I’m ready for some changes, and a new month sounds like a good way to start!

(1) Cheering the Patriots to victory in the suburbs with a blanket of snow already on the ground. (2) And then the storms came. Here’s Juno! (3) Cupcakes + coffee, super healthy breakfast on a snow day. (4) …Did I mention we got a lot of snow in Boston? (5) Got my hair done and vowed to be blonde forever. (6) I spent Valentine’s Day watching the Pokémon VCG regionals in St. Louis! (7) Majora’s Mask 3D came out!  This is one of my favorite games ever, so it’s great to have it portable. (8) I ate all of these macarons in one day, oops!  I’d love to try to bake some soon. (9) After 5 PM and it’s still almost light?  This is progress.

Are you looking forward to March as much as I am?

Tell me something good that you just can’t wait for!
