The Power of Makeup

I recently caught NikkieTutorial‘s video “The Power of Makeup.” In it, she does a full face on one side of her face and leaves the other completely bare.

How I Started In Video Games

The question I get asked the most is how I got started in video games or how to get a job at Nintendo. I don’t have a crazy amazing origin story – I applied online. However, I can give you a bit on my background and a few pointers to get you started in the right direction! Continue Reading

Can Vitamin C Mixed With Shampoo Remove Hair Dye?

Don’t tempt me with hair dye – especially if it’s pink. While at my friend Stephanie’s house, I saw her Overtone conditioner in the shower and decided then and there that I should have pink hair again. It looked pretty sweet, but then I found out I might have the opportunity to hair model, but would need to be blonde again. Continue Reading

Holy Cow, It’s Almost E3

I can’t believe that I leave for E3 on Friday! This will be my third E3 with Nintendo, and I am ready for it to start. This year I’ll be in LA even longer than ever staffing the Nintendo World Championships and adding on a few extra days to chill with friends, see The Misfits and hopefully take a trip to Disneyland! You know I’d love to see each and every one of your faces and I will try to say hi to as many people as I can – but it’s made harder by having to work! If you’re looking for me at E3, I will be in the Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 section of the Nintendo booth! (Just like last year.) Feel free to say hi if I don’t look super busy. :)


Moose’s First Haircut!

Moose got his first haircut this week. He’s extra cute now that you can see his face!


Welcome home, Moosey!

I always wanted a second dog. Cricket is pretty much my favorite thing on the entire planet, and I’ve always wanted her to have a buddy to play with. Last November, I decided to move out of San Francisco and closer to the office and my new apartment is basically perfect for dogs! No carpet! Fenced in yard! Huge! Continue Reading

I’m baaaaack!

As I fully disclose on my About Me page, I’m terrible at regularly blogging. What have I been busy with? Still working at Nintendo, going to Disneyland as much as humanly possible, playing with my dog (Hi Cricket!), adopting a new dog (Hi Moosey!), getting a tattoo of pizza and, well, the list goes on and on. I promise to try to update more frequently.  Continue Reading

Tomodachi Life Mii QR Codes

I’ve been working to fill up the apartment building in my game of Tomodachi Life and there are SO. MANY. APARTMENTS. I love looking at Miis others have made, but they don’t always have the Tomodachi Life data — which makes adding them to your island super quick (not to mention they’ll come with an outfit, interior and catchphrase). I thought I’d add some of these here in case anyone else is looking for new residents!

Got any to share? I still have like a dozen empty apartments.

Please not that I did not make all of these. Many are regular Miis from and I gave them personalities, outfits, etc., in Tomodachi Life.
