VGC Day 23: What game do you love to play with friends?

VGC Day 23: What game do you love to play with friends?

I don’t get the chance to play video games with friends too often. When I was younger, my brother and I loved fighting games like Soul Caliber and Mortal Kombat. However, I found most 2 player games lacking. It was pretty hard to find an enjoyable two player game that wasn’t a shooter.

A year ago, during a trip to visit my then-fiance/now-husband in Ireland, Alec introduced me to Lego Star Wars. It was pretty fun, and I didn’t have a problem with the game itself. The real fun came later when my husband arrived in the US. He introduced me to Lego Harry Potter.

Initially I thought these games were just for young kids and had zero interest in playing them. That all changed one Saturday night on the couch when we popped in Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4. I loved playing this game. And I loved it even more playing with my husband as it really required some team work for puzzles, but we could both loot individually.

It was an experience to see Hogwarts as well as Diagon Alley and other locations in lego form. My favorite part is definitely being Hermione and using magic. The game makes it fairly simple to use magic, and the puzzles are really fun. Alec and I really have to pick this one back up for another Saturday game night.

MCFT: Librarian Chic

So I am obsessed with the librarian look. You can make it edgy or hipster or preppy. It can be casual or business casual. It’s versatile and trendy but timeless. I can’t wait to try it myself! *Some affiliate links have been used. Check out my about me page to learn more about these links.

Both of these looks from Someone Like You remind me of Belle, the original Disney bookworm. The light blue shirt with white buttons is reminiscent of her first “peasant” dress. The mustard yellow cardigan is for her ball gown, and the burgundy dress is for her winter cloak. The scalloped edges on both of these outfits give them a whimsical feel.

To achieve this librarian chic look try this dress in burgundy, this cardigan in mustard, these boots in brown, and these tights in white.
