Current Faves +October 2015+

Hey Everybody!

I’m sorry it’s (yet again) been a while since my last post. To say this month has been stressful is an understatement. I am trying to find better ways to cope with it, but all will work out in some way, shape, or form. Anyways, I thought I’d do a fun post where I’ll share some things that I am thoroughly enjoying. I’m not 100% sure if this will be a monthly series, but for now I’ll keep the title as “Current Faves!” (๑•͈ᴗ•͈)

current faves title

I honestly had trouble picking specific items and themes…so I decided to include them all! A bit of music, books, games, and fashion~. (⑅˘͈ ᵕ ˘͈ ) If there is anything you’d like to know specifically that isn’t mentioned in this month’s post, please let me know in the comments below!

MUSIC

MUSIC

I’ve always enjoyed jazz music but lately I’ve found myself listening to different jazz circles more and more. I’ve been especially fond of Baguettes Ensemble and Comiket 81! ♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪

Baguettes Ensemble covers a lot of Vocaloid and Touhou songs which is actually how I discovered their music in the first place. Their songs may be covers, but they always add their own touch of incredible instrumental or vocal talents that really keeps me on my toes and gets me excited! One of my favorite songs at the moment is “Double Lariat” and I can’t help but spin around to it.

Comiket 81 focuses a bit more on Touhou background music and instrumentals. Their covers range from traditional jazz to cafe and lounge music. I prefer to listen to the Cafe de Touhou albums when I’m playing video games or at a local Starbucks while I catch up on some reading.

BOOKS

books

For the longest time, I’ve been wanting to order the “Cardcaptor Sakura” Nakayoshi 60th Anniversary edition books and I finally got the chance as of recently…and I have no regrets. (≖ᴗ≖๑) First off, let me just say how stunning and gorgeous the artwork and details are on the cover. It was so pretty, I had trouble removing the plastic. ( ・ั﹏・ั)  Overall, the quality of the book entirely is just amazing. The pages are a lovely glossy paper that will not rip easily and I freakin’ adore CLAMP’s artwork throughout the entire series. This was an such an awesome purchase and I can’t stop fangirling!

I have had questions about how I read Japanese manga. I will admit, I have the entire CCS series in English and read it already. But for other series, I have a pretty good grip when it comes to reading Japanese, however there are certain kanji or phrases that I do get confused with. At that point, I just type it into my translation app and 95% it helps!

GAMES

games

You guys…I have an addiction. AN ANIMAL CROSSING ADDICTION. ( ⁺⌓ॢ⁺;)՞ Actually, when I first heard news about Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, I thought it was the dumbest idea ever. All you do is design houses…and schools…and a hospital. However, when the Japanese version was released and let’s plays began appearing on YouTube, I took a gander and fell in love. Within moments, I was at my local GameStop pre-ordering the NFC-reader bundle. It was magical. Now that I have the game; I CAN’T STOP PLAYING. I must design EVERY HOUSE AS PASTEL AS POSSIBLE. (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و I’ll do a blog post soon on my favorite designs thus far!

FASHION

fashion

This shirt is an original design by the always so lovely artist; kinok0girl! The sale is already over but the shirt design was called “Bear With Me”! The shirt is a dark navy blue with an illustrated pocket featuring a cute little Mochi Bear poking out. (♥ó㉨ò)ノ♡ Prior to this purchase, I had never ordered anything from TeeSpring before, but their t-shirt quality is actually very nice and comfortable. It doesn’t shrink and it washes and dries really well. I enjoy wearing this shirt so freakin’ much especially with my green military jacket! I can’t wait for kinok0girl to create more designs~.

THAT’S IT. ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ) I hope you guys enjoyed this post and as I said before; if there is anything specifically you’d like to know about any of the products listed or if you’re wondering what’s my favorite of a different category (keep it family friendly please), go ahead and comment down below! You guys are awesome, I hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend. Oh…HAPPY HALLOWEEN ꐑ(*ꐌ◡ꐌꐐ*)࿐࿔࿓

Thanks for Reading~! ❤
With Love,
