First Impressions | Pokemon Sword

First Impressions | Pokemon Sword

Although Pokemon Sword and Shield were released in November 2019, I didn’t get my copy until Christmas which means I’ve had a lot of Pokemon adventures to catch up on. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been pouring my time into Pokemon Shield and exploring the new features, settings, and pokemon available in my edition of the game. Now turned out the perfect time to be playing through the game as well as there was a Pokemon direct announcement yesterday which revealed that Nintendo will be releasing Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC in June 2020 and Fall 2020 which will bring two new areas full of adventures, friends/rivals, and pokemon which is very exciting.

Until then, I’ve got quite a bit of the game left to play and wanted to share with you all my first impressions of Pokemon Shield. I hope you enjoy and, if you also have a Nintendo Switch, feel free to add me!

The Weekly Wrap | 8th January 2020

Hey all! You might have noticed this week’s change in title from WWW Wednesday to “The Weekly Wrap”. The Weekly Wrap is a new weekly post created by Destiny who combined the WWW Wednesday meme and The Sunday Post to bring her readers the best of both worlds within one tidy post. As I already use a similar format but just stuff everything into my WWW Wednesday posts, I thought it would be cool to adopt Destiny’s The Weekly Wrap here too. She’s also been kind enough to let me use her post as a template as I love the way that she laid everything out, so a big thank you to Destiny. I hope you all enjoy the change ❀

Best Games of 2019

Best Games of 2019

2019 was the year that I truly indulged myself in playing video games and didn’t even have to feel guilty about it because I can *technically* count it as doing ‘research’ now (and I’m pretty sure playing more video games was one of my 2020 goals)! I’ve been able to play so many games that have completely captivated me and reminded me of why I love video games so much, some of which I have been sharing with you all throughout the year in the form of more video game oriented blog posts. At the beginning of last year, I posted up a ‘Games I want to play in 2019‘ list which I thought would be cool to briefly revisit to see how many, if any, of those games I played before moving on to my best games of 2019.

December 2019 | Last Haul of the Year

Hey friends! I am back just in time for the end of 2019 and the end of the decade after several very impromptu absences from blogging. I don’t normally post haul posts apart from on special occasions so as it’s just after Christmas and I need an easy-ish post to ease me back into blogging again I thought I’d share my Christmas gifts with you all.

Christmas is often a difficult time of the year for me for money reasons, primarily family and financial, and although I love Christmas it is also a pretty stressful time of the year. Thankfully, I am incredibly lucky to have a supportive partner and loving friends who help to make Christmas an enjoyable time of the year . I’m also super grateful for any and all of the presents I get, and I got some really nice ones this year ❀ A huge, huge thank you to anyone who sent a present, messaged me or who are just around in general being lovely friends.
