Despite loving the Sims 4 and regularly making Sims 4 YouTube videos, I have yet to write any pack reviews on the blog! Shame on me. I have plans for some future pack reviews that involve the older Sims 4 expansions, game packs, stuff packs and kits, but today I’m reviewing the latest expansion pack to hit EA’s website: Cottage Living.
Webtoons are a big fave here on the blog. They kept me going through the pandemic and have become a part of my nightly routine. I even count them as a part of my weekly reading goal. I saw Annie over at Evening Tea Musings pose the question: what Webtoon stories would work well in anime? We’re seeing Webtoons get live action adaptations like Love Alarm (Netflix), Sweet Home (Netflix), True Beauty(Rakutan Viki), and others! So why not anime too?! Today I am sharing my top 5 action Webtoons that need their own anime. Netflix? Are you getting this?
Back in March, I finally gave into the snack cart TikTok trend and got myself a utility-turned-snack cart. If you haven’t seen this snack cart trend yet, creators on TikTok are building snack carts, decorating them, then filling them with snacks ASMR style. You can check out my video below to take a look at my empty decorated snack cart!
So why a snack cart you may ask? Well other than just not being able to get enough of the video trend, I found myself stuck in my upstairs home office practically starving from skipping meals! I would get off of work in the afternoon, head downstairs to the kitchen, and inhale anything that I could eat immediately like chips, cookies, etc. That behavior has really wrecked my eating habits and self confidence so I was looking for ways I could give myself easy access to healthy foods and snacks when I can’t get away from my desk for a proper meal. Enter: my Sailor Moon Snack Cart.
I’ve mentionedLost in Translation by Jjolee before back in one of my K-Confessions posts about a few of my favorite K-Pop and K-Drama Webtoons. Lost in Translation is a story about a K-Pop band called Mayhem with a heavy focus on Wyld, the band’s “Bad Boy.” Now that we’re partway into season 2, I thought it’d be a good time to share my thoughts on this Webtoon, Jjolee’s incredible expansion and immersion of Mayhem’s universe using social media and YouTube, and the amazing community that Jjolee has built around her original Webtoon.
Tomorrow is National Anime Day! I know I’m a day early, but I don’t usually post on Thursdays. Please forgive me and accept my humble offering of my top 8 anime suggestions for beginners. These anime are typical Shoujo and Shounen picks, but don’t let those words intimidate you. Shoujo typically targets a feminine audience with a focus on romance, relationships, and emotions. Shounen typically targets a masculine audience with a focus on action and male protagonists. Despite the target audiences of these two genres, anyone can enjoy either or both. My husband and I are both the latter!
I ask that as you try out these anime on my list or any other anime that you give each one a fair chance, especially if anime is out of your comfort zone. It might be a bit strange or weird at first if you aren’t used to trope characters or reading subtitles or watching “adult” animation, but promise you’ll stick with it for a few episodes to see how you like it. I have varying picks here for those who love romantic comedies, action, superheroes, and even horror. I tried to touch as many genres as I could within my own favorite anime to give you a genuine list to start with. Hopefully you’ll find your gateway anime and become a part of our wonderful community! Now… Let’s get to this list!
