liebster award

I’ve gotta admit it to you guys. It has been a rough couple of weeks for yours truly. But now things are really looking up! Earlier this week, I received a wonderful comment from the beautiful Suomica stating that she had nominated me for the Liebster Award!! I can’t thank her enough for the nomination or express how much it made my day and week~. Honestly, I was on the verge of tears while reading her comment! Thank you so much Suomica, dear! ❤

When any of you get a chance, I highly suggest visiting Suomica’s blog! It packs tons of beauty reviews and cute personal posts. She is sincerely a treasure and I am so happy to share her blog around!

award rules(You may need to click the image if you are having difficult reading it…)

According to the award rules I have to answer Suomica’s questions from her nomination:

Question 1: Are you a gamer? If so, what is one of your favorite games?
– I am a heavy gamer honestly! If I’m not playing video games I am watching someone else play video games on Twitch. As for my favorite game, I think it goes without saying that it’s Pokemon…*sigh*

Question 2: Do you have any pets?
– I do, but they’re also considered family pets! There is DeeDee the Yorkie Poo, Taz the Pitbull/Lab mix, and our 2 Chihuahuas Domino and Cricket.

Question 3: What clothing brand do you absolutely love?
– I’m not necessarily partial to any specific brand, but I’ve been reflagging Ank Rouge’s clothes a lot on Tumblr lately!

Question 4: All time favorite eyeliner?
– I very rarely wear eye makeup, but when I do it’s Wet ‘n’ Wild liquid liner in black.

Question 5: Where are you from?
– I am from South Carolina!

Question 6: What social media site are you addicted to?
– Tumblr… Yes Tumblr. Tumblr is love, Tumblr is life. ❤

Question 7: Who would say is your biggest inspiration right now?
– Hmmm, would it be wrong or weird to say myself? Because I’ve spent so long looking for inspiration elsewhere, but never in my own self until recently.

Question 8: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
– I would say California. I feel that if I live within close proximity to a Mitsuwa and have the LA or Monterey weather along with the job opportunities that California allows I’d feel pretty at home. Plus, it’s the only place the Fiancé and I can agree on.

Question 9: What is your favorite thing about yourself?
– I’d like to say my personality or my fashion sense.

Question 10: How do you express yourself?
– A couple of different ways; writing, blogging, and photography, however, seem to be my favorite forms.

Hatsune Miku Project Mirai: DX News & Thoughts

What is Happening, My Homies?

I have to give it to 2014 for being such an incredible year for gaming! So many fantastic releases and announcements are here and expected. 2015 looks most promising!

One announcement from late last year, the Hatsune Miku Project Mirai DX, has finally shown development at both the Tokyo Game Show and with the most recent Nintendo Direct for Japan. So for today, I thought it’d be cool to discuss the international release of Project Mirai DX.


In mid 2013 and early 2014, we saw the international release of the first installment of the Project Diva F series for the PlayStation3 and Vita systems respectively. We Nintendo loving Miku fans were happy and surprised to hear news of a 3DS counterpart. Project Mirai was reported to be making its way to the U.S. and other parts of the world under the name, which has changed, Project Mirai: Remixed. As you can imagine, I was super excited.

However, aside from the initial announcement, there hasn’t been any additional news regarding the international release for some  months. Because of the time lapse, I feared the idea may had been scrapped. Then came the glorious Tokyo Game Show where we saw the name had changed to Project Mirai Deluxe, or DX for short, along with some sweet gameplay footage.

After TGS the news once again slowed down. Not until the first Nintendo Direct release of 2015, that aired January 14th, did we hear anything new. From the stream we were given some details, and a glimpse of what the gameplay will be. All delivered brilliantly in a trailer that doubled as an awesome music video.

Here is What We Know:
Release Date: May 26th (U.S.) May 28th (JPN) May 29th (EU)
Theme Song: 「はじめまして地球人さん』by ピノキオピー (“Nice to Meet You, Earthling” by PinocchioP)
All songs are from Project Mirai 2 and will have full 3DPVs and costume modules to accompany them.
Snow Miku 2014 and 2015 as well as Halloween Miku have been added to the costume module list.
Four New Gameplay Items and Options including Sudden Death and Recovery.
New Playback Features have been added as well.

So what are my thoughts on this international release? I AM SO FLIPPIN’ EXCITED I HAVE ALREADY PRE-ORDERED THE GAME!!! I was hoping that the Project Mirai series would come over to the West after the Project Diva F series did. And as much as I like the Project Diva F series, I prefer rhythm games on the 3DS. PS3 and Vita just don’t feel as natural to me as the 3DS. Also, I really wished that Sega would’ve used songs from both Project Mirai 1 and 2 for the Deluxe edition. I know both games weren’t released internationally, but Project Mirai 2 does have some awesome songs. So I know this title will make for a  great, worth while purchase.

I also hope that the DLC for Project Mirai DX is not as expensive as it was for Project Diva F 2nd, though I have a feeling that it may be. There tends to be a lot of modules and accessories in Hatsune Miku games. As for the 3DPVs, I am really super excited. Don’t get me wrong I like the original artwork PVs, but I much prefer 3DPVs. I think they add a moving aspect making the game appear like it will be a bit more challenging. I am also excited to see all of the costume modules that will be included for the 3DPVs. Speaking of costume modules, I hope that the Americana module will be included. Just like they did in Project Diva F 2nd! (Please Sega, Please.)

Pictures & Source Credits

Overall, I am super excited for this awesome release. And the closer we get to the release date I will have a super awesome surprise for you all! The surprise will include this game, Pokemon ORAS and Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask so stay tuned! With that being said, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and a safe one as well. Be careful everyone! There is supposed to be even more snow in Virginia. Take care everyone and you already know…

Happy Valentine’s Day & Updates

Hello Everyone!

I’ve kind of been on an unannounced hiatus, sorry guys. There were a lot of things that caused me to kind of lose my focus with a lot of things and now I am trying to get it all back, slowly but surely. I do plan on resuming posts next week, but I do hope you all understand. Thank you so much for your continued support and I will have a surprise announcement within the next month or so! I can’t wait to share it with you all~!

With that said, Anthony and I need to get ready for our Dinner Date, so I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day whether you are single or taken!


Because nothing says “I love you more” than our Tyrant Lord Espurr! (If you watch OtakuHaven72 on Twitch, you may get the joke…)
