1. The Ultimate Harry Potter Drinking Game on The Odyssey

harry potter gif

Rossy had sent me this link to The Odyssey’s Ultimate Harry Potter Drinking Game quite awhile ago but, boyfriend and I only played it recently. We had such a blast while watching Deathly Hallows Part 1. There are different sets of rules for each film and they aren’t generic, boring ones, either. They all actually made me laugh because I hadn’t noticed how often certain things happened.

2. Animal Crossing: New Leaf & Pocket Camp

I have had Animal Crossing: New Leaf for my Nintendo 3DS for as long as I can remember but, when I first got it, I really didn’t understand anything so I safely stashed it away and never looked back.

When the Pocket Camp app released, I remember tons of people were obsessed with it but, at that time, I didn’t download it or even give it a chance. I was dead set on thinking it wasn’t a game for me but, NOW, since New Horizons came out for the Nintendo Switch (earlier this week)… and even my guy cousin has been loving it… I knew it was time for me to give New Leaf another whirl and man, am I so glad I did.

It’s such a cute, fun, creative, and silly game. If you’ve ever played it, you know it takes a lot of patience! I’m playing without time traveling and it’s so hard to wait for new content but, at least, it gives me something to look forward to everyday while stuck inside.

Pocket Camp is a LOT more fast-paced and it doesn’t matter what time you play. You rarely have to wait a whole day for new things but, it’s also less detailed and not as personalized.

If you’ve never played before, both games are about collecting various items, making friends with the adorable characters, creating/designing a space that represents YOU, and expressing yourself through different pieces of clothing.

In New Leaf, you have a whole town to develop and your own house to decorate– you’re the mayor! And in Pocket Camp, you get an entire camping area, cabin, camper, and garden. You’re the manager of the entire campsite! I just freakin’ love it.

3. Multiplayer XBOX One Games

Boyfriend and I finished Overcooked 2 and A Way Out together this week (they are both available for free on Game Pass, if you subscribe)!

Overcooked allows you to play solo but, it was so much more fun with the two of us. I always play these sort of time-management, cooking games on my phone but, never have I ever on a console. It was awesome!

For each level, the scene and recipes change, you have to figure out the right rhythm/groove, delegate tasks between one another, and get enough orders out as quick as possible! Things get real difficult with conveyor belts, fire throwing, and more. It took us about 3 days to 3-star every level! I was pretty sad when it was over because I wanted to keep playing!

A Way Out will only let you play if you have another player with you or online. One of you will be Vincent and the other, Leo. You start in prison, where you guys meet as cell neighbors and from there, you help each other escape and so on. It wasn’t very difficult and it didn’t take long to get to the ending, you just have to communicate and work together. The story was extremely captivating and there are tons of cut-scenes in between everything, which would usually annoy me and make me quit but, not with this one. I needed to see everything! And, I’m pretty sure there are different options throughout the game that can change the outcome, too. Like, a “choose your own adventure” kind of story, y’know? Super cool.

4. New Contacts!!

biofinity

I had been using the Air Optix brand of contacts ever since I first started wearing them (about 5 or 6 years ago). I never noticed too much dryness or any irritations UNLESS, I accidentally fell asleep or showered with them in. I came to think that was normal but, when I went for my annual exam last month, the eye doctor switched me to a new brand called, Biofinity. These are 10x thinner and do not stick to my eyeballs, at all, not even if I want to take a wee nap. I never knew that was possible! I’m so happy now!

5. I Love Me by Demi Lovato

Demi, Demi, Demi. She always makes me tear up and this new song of hers was no different. It hit me hard. I don’t know why my empathy for her is so strong, I feel it in my own chest when anyone else tears her down. She is, 100%, badass and I love watching her gain her confidence back. ❀ I just want to scream, “you’re perfect!” in her face.

What have YOU been loving this week?!

    This week we bought 😬 $100 worth of Sims 4 add ons– got my Seasons back, Jungle Adventure, Spooky Stuff, Get to Work, Dine Out, Realm of Magic and something else we obviously haven’t played 🀣 sooooo I’m enjoying that in my spare time.

    1. The Bionfinity’s are soooo thin & nice, I love ’em!! I am so sorry you weren’t able to get your eyes checked. If I hadn’t went at just the time that I did, my prescription would have expired & I’d have no contacts until they exams opened back up. Hope you’re able to get your contacts refilled still if you need to!!

      Aw man, I’d LOVE to have Nintendo 64! Sounds like a blast. ❀ & yesss, the HP drinking game was actually so fun. Not as cliche as you'd expect!

      Thank you for stopping by, love! Hope you're doing well! ❀

  4. Ooo yes – I love Biofinity. I use that brand for one of my eyes (lol my eye issues are a long story). Also, if you have dry eye – Genteal and Systane gel drops work wonders!! They are a strange texture and can make your vision blurry initially, but they work really well at night before going to bed.

    I’m loving Demi’s new song, too. So glad to see her thriving again and I loved the little throwback Easter eggs in the video!

    I need to try the HP drinking game lol – I’ve been rewatching the whole series lately!

    1. Oh wow, that’s interesting that you need two different brands for each eye. What’s the other brand you use?

      I usually don’t suffer from dry eyes & I rarely ever sleep or shower with my contacts in anyways– just happens on accident sometimes lol. I will keep those eyedrops in mind though!!

      YES, I love Demi & I’m not sure I caught any Easter eggs lol, I’ll have to look them up. πŸ™‚

      The HP drinking game was such a blast! Rewatching the whole series sounds like a freakin’ great idea… if only I had more alcohol lol.

    I’m with you with the anxious feelings. We’re trying to food shop every 7-10 days and still social distancing if we go out for a work out.
    I love a drinking Game, we played a few of the early Harry Potter ones and got smashed, so fun!
    You’re so sweet and thoughtful for what you did for your boyfriend! I totally get it, it was my bfs birthday last week and I felt bad I couldnt make it an exciting one.
    It’s my 30th a week today, and it is not what we had lined up.

      LOL YES! The drinking games are no jokes. You will, for sure, get smashed before the film ends. I love it! & happy belated birthday to your man! I think we did the best we could indoors & they’ll have to understand for THIS year. πŸ˜‰

      I have taken a break from the Sims for a few days because I was sad my teenage son grew up in the shape of a PEAR no matter how skinny or fit he got LOL.

      I am extra extra careful with my contacts. I’ve heard the worst things about people who mishandle or improperly wear theirs & would never do that to my eyes! I doooo accidentally fall asleep with them in sometimes though :/ so I guess I’m not that careful lol. Luckily, the eye doc told me these new ones are actually *okay* to nap in. So yay! πŸ˜€

      YES! Demi is so back. ❀ I hope you like her new song! & ooo, are you going to share what jewelry you bought on your blog?! I wanna see!!

  8. The drinking game looks so fun! I need a good HP marathon right now, so I think I’ll have to pencil one in my schedule! I LOVED Animal Crossing on the DS, I miss it so much now that I don’t have it anymore! I did play the app, but I stopped after a few months and I don’t remember the exact reason.

    Yesss, Overcooked was so fun! I’m not much of a gamer because I suck, haha, but Overcooked was so much fun. I like the games like that. Stephen got too frustrated with the game, so I had to beat the game with his friend’s girlfriend! I couldn’t imagine playing the game solo because that confused and stressed me out having to switch between the little characters!

    I hadn’t listened to the Demi Lovato song until now but I liked it! I love how music makes people feel so empowered and connected! β™₯

    1. Ooh the drinking game was a blast! & there’s nothing better than a good ol HP marathon. πŸ˜€ I can’t believe I had Animal Crossing stashed away for YEARS & never really played it more than once for 10 minutes lol. I guess it was meant to be for me to have it during this lockdown. I’ve been enjoying it so much!

      The app is pretty cool, too. It has a lot to do for such a long time for just a free phone game.

      LOL boyfriend & I def yelled at each other once or twice while we played Overcooked but, it felt so good when we’d beat each level with 3 stars, especially when we had to try more than once or twice! I had never even tried playing the game solo– I thought they’d make the kitchens a little smaller & only give you 1 chef. That sounds intense having to switch between them!!

      I’m so happy you listened to the Demi song & loved it. ❀ She's amazing!!

      1. Who knew Animal Crossing would be something to keep people sane during this lockdown? Haha. I don’t have a Switch, but it makes me want one just to play the game!

        That cracks me up, but it really was so satisfying to get 3 stars on everything. We were playing the holiday one and the island themed ones too but we haven’t beat them, I don’t think. Solo is less ideal to play to me, and I could not imagine how you’d beat some of the levels on your own!

        And yes, I love finding more music to listen to! You can’t ever get enough of it. Thanks for sharing, Hunida! ❦

    I don’t really listen to Demi Lovato but she’s had it rough and I only wish her the best. She seems like an amazing human being who just needs loads of support and love. By the way, she had performed at some awards show earlier this year? I think it was her first performance after she had OD’d? Idk. Anyway, she had started the performance but had to stop and try again because she was getting teary. I thought that was an absolutely perfect performance. I had a lot of admiration for her for that one performance.
