Another Sunday in August means another fireworks show! It also just so happens to be Nana’s Birthday today! Exciting news all around, although that does mean that poor Nana is stuck indoors not being able to join in with the fireworks festivities. She may not be a permanent resident for Sirenity but I was glad I had her long enough to celebrate her Birthday with her here on the island. Hopefully she doesn’t take it the wrong way but after that she really needs to leave.
I do have to say that ever since the fireworks stuff I find Daisy Mae scarce on my island. Maybe it’s because I’ve been starting my Animal Crossing Day later as I have work in the morning but I haven’t been able to find her what feels like almost the whole month. For once I was kind of in the mood for it too but I wasn’t going to waste hours looking for her, but I did spend more than a half hour scouring my island with high hopes.
Gonna be honest, I don’t really enjoy fireworks that much in real life. Not a huge fan of loud abrupt noises and so that tends to come along with the whole package. So normally when I do have to deal with it, I have to wear headphones and blare my music. Fireworks are always pretty though, no matter how loud and abrupt they may be.

I gotta say today did not feel like a Monday. The fact that K.K. Slider was in town today definitely didn’t help. With all the commotion of the last few days I barely noticed his absence even though I tried so hard to get him to begin with. There he was, and I am glad he was because honestly he was the only highlight of the day.

Gullivarrr made an appearance today I didn’t have the time for everyone on the Island to do the whole spiel but I always have an extra moment to do it on my main character, she’s the star of the show after all.
In other news I went on a friendly mission to improve villager relations on my island by helping with a delivery!

Apollo literally makes me the happiest person on the planet, next to Whitney that is, he’s already fitting in quite nicely. I am working hard on making their whole areas like a love nest! I really hope that I can catch them interacting with each other. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter TOO much as I can just hop over to Harvey’s and make it happen!
With Whitney still in mind, she decided that she wants to give me a new nickname that I really hope never catches on, Swanky.
For some reason I am always compelled to say yes, maybe it’s because I hardly had any nicknames in my childhood, didn’t get any until I made some interesting friends in highschool.

It seems that these days Gullivarrr and Gulliver come hand in hand. I don’t think I have had a single week where if I saw one I didn’t see the other soon after. So of course today was Gulliver’s turn to stop on by.
He’s so peaceful when he’s sleeping.

Label was in town today, I won’t be showing off the outfit I chose though since I plan to feature it in my next Look Book that I’m just finishing up. But I was able to get I nice new Labelle hat out of it!
August 29th, 2020
I SAW THEM FISHING TOGETHER OMG!!! This was literally the highlight of my whole week! It was the heart pond and everything! With that little side glance from Whitney I couldn’t help but snap a picture of this literally perfect moment.
And as if the mood couldn’t be anymore set for the lovebirds K.K. Slider’s song for the night, may not have been Love Song, but it was K.K. Soul. I perfect way to end the night with these soul mates! I can’t wait to see what more I can get from my island as well as these two lovebirds!
The one thing I love about Harvey’s Island is all the stuff you can put your villager’s in! Want to gift them some clothes but afraid it might not look as good as you think? Check them out at Harvey’s First! I did one look for each of my Villagers, all outfits that I just thought flattered/suited the Villagers.
Turns out Lucky looks looks real snazzy in a leather jacket!
I originally wanted to throw her in something a little darker but Mathilda actually looked a lot better in this lighter classier outfit!
Fun Fact! I actually put this dress on Whitney solely because it reminded me of one of the outfits she wears in the Animal Crossing Movie!
I tried to give Robin more of a ‘Starving Artist’ look and I think she pulls it off really well!
This was supposed to be a simple sailor look but it actually really reminds me of the Ice Cream Shoppe Uniforms from Stranger Things! Either way Ketchup is adorable.
I gave Ellie this really elegant Queen look and man it suits her so well. She is definitely rocking it!
Despite what I see as a very rebellious nature for Renée I actually found that this Homebody look suited her more nicely than anything else I really had.
I was pleasantly surprised that Reneigh was so well suited to one of my favourite witchy outfits! I’d start a coven with her any day!
Just because I am very ready for Nana to leave my Island, she’s been here forever and unfortunately doesn’t make my final cut. I was still able to find a nice soft outfit that suited her! (I am thinking about actually gifting her one of these sweaters before she leaves now since it suits her so well).
Old man Rasher, another Villager I am very ready to leave. As I wasn’t even the one to invite him he just showed up. He hasn’t been terrible for my Island but he is definitely not my style. I did throw him into something I figured was more his style and it definitely suited him well. A nice sporty look!
Hope you enjoyed this week’s look book! If you have any ideas for themes for other Look Books feel free to leave a comment! All suggestions are welcome!
I started the day pretty aggravated with Pascal once again, I had jumped onto Milo’s character to go Scallop hunting and not only did Pascal not show up for the first Scallop of the day, but didn’t show up for the second one either.
It was very hard to keep motivation up for the day when I keep having such a hard time just getting Pascal to show his face. The only plus for the day was that on my regular character Thirteen, I got an S Ranking house (Only the Silver trophy but still!)
My house is far from complete in my eyes though, I still have the upstairs, the downstairs to do up entirely. Plus I want a little more going on in the bathroom I have done up so far. Once it’s done though I will definitely get some photos/videos to share with everyone!

Leif was in town today, he was super important in the completion of my Island Maze that now is fully completed!
I had a little bit of a hard time dealing with a lost item today. It was the first time I ever really had this issue as before when I was still off work I wouldn’t play as early in the morning as I have been. But I actually had to jump on during one of my breaks at work to be able to complete it as Rasher, the item owner, couldn’t get himself out of bed before I had to leave for work in the morning.
Thankfully I have the Switch Lite, so I had no issues locking it up at work to come back to on my break. Still it was a little more hassle this time around than it has been in the past.
And then it was also very concerning seeing Rasher’s weird grin just peering at me after we had finished our business. He gets creepier the longer I have him on my island. At the end of the day he’s just an Old Grump that I hope finds a better home soon.
I am still working hard trying to deal with the Pascal nonsense, it’s just exhausting to even write about at this point. Just assume it got done with a lot of issues. -_-

Today’s letter from Nana I felt on a deep personal level. Ever since going back to work, even when I try to sleep in on my days off, I’m still waking up super early just ready to go for the day. I just want to relax in bed and do nothing!
Flick was in town today and due to my lack of preparedness I didn’t even have the time to go hunt for an art project for him. I was pretty disappointed but there wasn’t much I could do about it, just wasn’t in me after a 10 hr work day to go and bug hunt. I will however be taking this as a lesson and work on getting some stored up for Flick and CJs next visits.
In other super exciting news, we are in the process on moving another Dream Team Villager into Sirenity! My friend from Beacon where we sent Marshal, and where I already got Ellie from, managed to get their hands on Whitney for me! That news came with even more excitement when Filbert finally decided that it’s time for him to move on from Sirenity!
July 15th, 2020
Today we finally say goodbye to Filbert, and by ‘we’ I mean just Milo. He was the only one I sent in to say goodbyes. I don’t have anything against Filbert, I just think he’s a little on the boring side. Plus with Whitney on the line, it’s a no-brainer.
Ellie sent me a wonderful gift and letter in the mail. So wonderful that I just had to make sure I fulfilled Ellie’s wishes. I opened the gift and modelled the dress inside in style! She definitely knows the kind of clothes I like!
I got a new nickname today as well, I’m not super fond of it as I was really enjoying being called Chief. Plus the new nickname is really weird. Yet I still accepted it so now half my villagers walk around calling me reverb. Probably the more out there nickname I will have in this game.
I ended my day playing a super quick round of Treasure Hunter with Ketchup!
July 16th, 2020
I think Iggly is going to have to leave soon if he can’t get along with the permanent Villagers. It was interesting to see him storm off as Ketchup was just glowing away.
Saharah was here to sell me her wares. I feel like even though I always buy one of everything I hardly have any options for wall and flooring. I need more choices Saharah give me more!
Later on in the day, after I had returned from work, I finally got to head over to Beacon to obtain Whitney!
It only took a bit of talking before I got what I was looking for!
We almost have all the Villagers we need! It gets more and more exciting every time I manage to get a Dream Team Villager to come to the Island. Also, while I was in Beacon I thought I would pay a quick visit to check on our previous resident Marshal, I found it super adorable that he still remembers me.
I was about to call it a night after I had headed back to Sirenity but I found Wisp and figured I had more than enough time to help a ghost out before I go to bed.
I’ve chosen the expensive option only once and it immediately gave me something that I already owned, and so I almost always choose something new with Wisp now. At least I can guarantee that no matter how expensive or cheap the item is it’s something that will expand my catalogue.
July 17th, 2020
Whitney is officially a Sirenity resident! We are so incredibly happy to have her as part of our Island adventure. Now all I have to do is get her partner Apollo! I can’t wait to see how they interact with each other on an Island together compared to how they were in the movie!
In other news, Label was also in town today. I got a wicked cool new coat from her and I honestly think it’s super snazzy.
Aside from all the secret preparations I made for some Island visitor fun tomorrow, I kept it simple today. A lot of indoor work with our residential Mermaid’s house, as I want it to have a real authentic Mermaid feel. I’ve been crafting up as many Mermaid items as I possibly am I able to. I basically use up all the resources I get in the day to try and get more items in there. I think I’m still missing some shell DIY’s that would go well with the Mermaid theme as well. It’s just about finding everything! Once her house is fully upgraded and done I will probably do a small tour there as well.

We have a campsite visitor! I was pleasantly surprised as I’ve been having people over semi frequently and I know that can effect when a camper visits but I got the announcement so I’m not going to complain.
I recognized who it was as soon as I entered the tent, as Julian here is already a resident of my New Leaf town of Gothello. He’s definitely an amazing villager, but as I already technically have him, even if it’s just in New Leaf. I don’t feel the need to obtain him for Sirenity. Or even for Sirenity South for that matter (More news on that at a later date).
Nana was sick, so I had to get on top of that, I went and grabbed her some medicine and got her up and going again. Some of the older villagers that I’ve had since early on Nana included, have gotten a little tiring to interact with, but I am trying to at least be civil. I really just want these guys to move out though so that I can get the big guys I want in here. I am glad that she will be feeling better soon enough though!
Today is also the day I am having people over for a little fun! We are going to have a scavenger hunt, hang out with K.K. Slider, and do a little late night Maze Race. I’ve come to really love how my Island feels at night (aside from diving which at night is surprisingly terrifying). I really hope everyone that comes by has a great time! I will be posting more about what happens tonight on Wednesday, as next week’s Tidbit of the week! So stay tuned for that~
