Maryellen’s Birthday Dress~ Another Photoshoot

I’m really sorry about all the photoshoots lately, but I am really planning to put the next part of Masquerade up tomorrow :)

Anyways, you might have heard that I won Maryellen’s Birthday Dress in Madison’s giveaway! Well, it arrived today and it is SO STINKIN’ GORGEOUS!!! Thanks so much again, Madi!! I love it SOOO much!!! πŸ˜€

On with the photoshoot!

IMG_7719
The colors of the dress and shoes and just everything is so pretty! And it looks just fabulous on Maryellen! πŸ˜€

IMG_7720
Oh, just an FYI- this is a long photoshoot and I got kinda experimantal with angles and whatnot so just be prepared for that πŸ˜‰

Doesn’t her hair look amazing up against the green?! AAAAH!

IMG_7721

I love how cute and simple the headband is! Of course there was a ginormous tag on it that had to be removed… Why AG? LOL!

IMG_7722

The contrast of pink in this outfit is so pretty! The little rose adds just the perfect touch :)

IMG_7723
And all the tulle is just gorgeous as well!

IMG_7724
Okay, these shoes are adorable!!! I love the white bows πŸ˜€

IMG_7725
Maryellen and I love this outfit to pieces and we recommend it 100%! I have no complaints about this outfit whatsoever! It’s gorgeous (as I’ve probably stated a gazillion times by now XD ) and is made of a great quality! I can see the Velcro snagging the dress, though, so I’d just be careful with that if I were you πŸ˜‰

Well’p, that’s all for today! I think Maryellen is definitely getting a new profile picture. She just looks so beautiful, doesn’t she? πŸ˜€

Thanks again, Madi! I can’t tell you how much I love this outfit! :)

Which picture was your favorite?

Maryellen~ Photoshoot & Review

As you all should know by now, I got MARYELLEN!!! I really didn’t think I’d make enough money to get her in such a short time, but I’m so glad and thankful I did! She is absolutely beautiful and oh! Her hair!! I think she has one of my favorite doll wigs! It’s BEAUTIFUL! πŸ˜€

Now, let’s get on to the photoshoot and review! :)

image

Maryellen is a beautiful girl with lovely hazel eyes and strawberry blonde hair. I’d have to say, though, that I am not so impressed with her bangs. Both Maryellen and Grace have that weird section of hair that flops over. You can move that piece up and out of the way, though, which is probably what I’ll do from now on :)

image

Here are her pretty eyes. They are a green hazel. The colors I see in her eyes are green and brown. It looks like Maryellen and Clara (MAG/TM #21) share the same eye color. You can click on the picture and zoom in to see the color perfectly :)

image

Her outfit is ADORABLE and great quality!

image

I love the colors of the dress so much! It looks really beach-y and sorta candy shop-ish to me πŸ˜€ The stripes are white, coral, red, and mint :)

image

image

I really like the bits of ribbon and two bows and the sweetheart neckline, SO cute! πŸ˜€

image

Her knit shrug is probably my favorite piece of this outfit! It’s adorable!! It is very soft and easy to get on and off. The “M” is embroidered on :) Oh, and there’s no need to worry about the velcro from the dress snagging the shrug either. The dress velcros quite nicely in the back :)

image

She comes with her hair styled in a high ponytail. Her curls are so pretty and I love the color of her hair!! πŸ˜€ Oh, and something that is SO weird is that her tag said “Care for your doll with straight hair”…. I’m like – That is wavy/curly! Not straight at all! πŸ˜›

image

The ribbon bow is attached to a hair scrunchie.

image

Here’s the back of the shrug so you can see the lovely details. I love the design! :)

image

Her shoes are some of my favorite AG shoes, I think! They velcro on nicely :)

image

Well, I think that wraps up the review! Now get ready for just pictures! πŸ˜€

image

image

Oh, right! Here’s a closeup of her hair color. The colors in her hair are blonde, red, and what seems to be orange-ish to me…? I could be wrong, though πŸ˜‰

image

image

I LOVE the sun ray shining down on this one! πŸ˜€

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

And that ends this photoshoot! Be sure to let me know which picture you liked best! :)

What do you think of Maryellen? Do you plan on getting her someday?

I’ll post the pictures I took at the debut either later today or tomorrow :)

My Haul From The AG Store, Reviews, and a Photoshoot!

Heeeelloooo everyone! Wow, I guess I’m a little excited right now LOL! Okay, well, I Β am super excited (see? XD) to show you what I got at the AG store, and I know you all must be, too, so let’s get on with it, shall we? πŸ˜€

image

Grace’s Opening Night Outfit- I have been wanting this so badly, and when I realized I had enough money, I was like, “Okay, I’m buying this!” It is such a pretty outfit and I have no regrets of choosing this outfit! The headband stays in place and the little bow is adorable! It just adds so much to the outfit!

image

The dress is absolutely gorgeous and good quality! I love the different layers in the skirt and all the pretty sequins! The black “sash” is velvet and just so cute! Pink and black are a favorite color combo of mine :)

image

The sandals are amazing! These are literally some of my favorite sandals I own! I rate this outfit 5 out of 5 stars. If you have been trying to decide whether or not to buy it, don’t hesitate! It’s amazing!

image

I was really happy to find out that AG’s sale was also in store! I have loved The Rainy Day Coat ever since it came out, but I just never wanted to spend the money on it. $16 is much more reasonable :)

image

This coat is so stinkin’ adorable! I love the pink with white polka-dots and all the adorable buttons! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this coat, so I rate it 5 out of 5 stars!

image

Here’s a bonus pic of Kiara since she looked so adorable :)

image

“Who could it be? This animal dollyΒ who I did see? Can you help me guess this mysteryyyy?” If you know what that song is from, that is awesome! LOL! πŸ˜€

image

I got MAG #39!!! She is SO adorable and I’m so happy to have her!! πŸ˜€ She’s going to take over and explain some things to you now :)

image

Hi! My name is- oh! I forgot! I can’t tell you that! What’s that? Why can’t I tell you what my name is? Well, I’m going to explain all that to you, but first I have to do a review!

image

As I’m sure you have noticed, Jaclynn bought me the Starry Hoodie Outfit! It is so comfy and I just love it!

image

The headband is super easy to get on and I just love the braided look! I’m just not sure about the yellow with this outfit…

image

The sweatshirt is very soft, therefore making it suuuuper comfy!!

image

Normally I am not a fan of print leggins, jeggins, pants, whatever. I just don’t think they’re very cute, but surprisingly, I like these! The stars look so relaxing and with how soft the jeggings are, it makes me want to sleep! OH! It makes me want to watch STAR WARS!!!! *said in a deep dramatic narrator’s voice* “In a galaxy far, far away…” Oops! Sorry, I just get so excited when I start talking about something I love!!

image

And last, the shoes are super cute! Gotta love the sparkles! Only, they’re a little harder to get on than AG’s other flats…Β 

image

To make it easier to pull the hood over your head, there is a little slit in the hood, which, when on, looks a little weird. I get why it’s there, but it just looks weird, ya know?

image

But it looks adorable from the front, so that makes up for it! I rate this outfit 4 out of 5 stars, because of the yellow in the headband, the difficulty to get on the shoes, and the slit in the hood :)

image

Now, then here’s the answer to why I can’t tell you my name yet- I’m incomplete.Β 

image

I can tell you that I’m 14, I love chinchillas, and the rest I can’t just straight up tell you.

image

Why am I incomplete? I can’t tell you that either. Right now I am just a doll. I’m not a member of Jaclynn’s “family” yet and I won’t be until I’m complete. When will I be complete? Time will tell, but I certainly hope I will be this year. But don’t worry! I will still appear in posts and I have already been assigned a star role in several pirate stories, which I’m really excited about! “It is a drawring of a key.” I need to watch Pirates of The Caribbean… AH! I LOVE THOSE MOVIES!!!Β 

image

Even though I can not tell you my first name, I can tell you my middle name, so that you have something to call me until I am officially introduced. You can call me Jane. “No, no, no, no. I’m Jane.” AGH! There are too many amazing movies!!! Well, I have said everything there is to say and I am starving, so I shall bid you all farewell! *bites lip and blinks back tears whilst thinking to herself “Hobbit!”* Until next time! Bye!

Isn’t she so sweet and fun?! I just love her!! She has one of my favorite personalities of my dolls!! πŸ˜€

Have a nice night everyone! :)

Radiant Riven-Delle~ A Photoshoot

Oh, my goodness! It was SO much fun to introduce you to Grace in my photostory!! I hope you all enjoyed seeing her that way! πŸ˜€

Now, it is time for a photoshoot!! πŸ˜€

image

Yesterday, was SO much fun!! I just have to tell you the story of my getting Grace! :)
I have always wanted to go to a GOTY debut, and I had already seen tons of leaked pictures of Grace and her collection, I was just so in love with her that I knew she would be perfect for me to go to her debut! My mom also really wanted to take me, and we talked about would I not buy Grace that day and wait until my birthday, or would I buy her then? I had most of the money, so we decided that this would be my birthday trip and she would be my birthday doll :) We also invited Emma and Ginger Spice, but neither one of them could come. So yesterday morning, when me and my mom were walking to our car, she walked past the car and said, “Let’s go this way.” In my head I’m like, “What is she doing?” But I followed and was greeted by Emma along with Ginger Spice!! Emma literally (well, okay not literally, but I was shaking from excitement!) almost gave me a heart attack!! She yelled, “JACLYNN!!!” And almost tackled me with a huge hug! They surprised me so good, I couldn’t even believe it! So yes, we had a TON of fun yesterday and I will be posting lots of pictures very soon! πŸ˜€
I have also renamed Grace, because I just didn’t like that name for her. πŸ˜‰ So what did I name her?

image

I named her Riven-Delle!! She is named after a place in Lord of The Rings, called Rivendell, but I changed the spelling to make it look more like a name. Do you like the edit I did? :)

Okay, so enough of my rambling. On with the photoshoot! πŸ˜€

image

Riven-Delle has freckles that go all the way across her nose!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! Her eyes are a beautiful shade of blue and she has feathered eyebrows, which are thicker than normal. Her cheeks are also more rosy than others :)

image

Look at all of the beautiful colors in her hair!!! Yes, all of these pictures are completely natural. No edits or filters! :)

image

I’m sure you can also see that I got her Travel Coat! It’s so adorable and I’m super happy with it! πŸ˜€

image

image

The right three buttons on the coat, actually button up, and it velcros where the bow is :)

image

These sweet grey boots are from her Meet Outfit. They’re very soft and are SUPER easy to slip on and off! Yep, no velcro, buttons, or zippers at all on these boots!

image

I love how her hair looks in this picture!

image

image

image

image

image

Wow, she is so photogenic!

image
I love this shot! She has such silky hair, I think it’s actually softer than Kaya’s! Oh, and I saw somebody ask on another blog if her hair is layered – yes, it is layered :)

image

image

image

image
And that ends this photoshoot! I honestly think that this is one of the best photoshoots I’ve done! What do you think? What picture is your favorite?

~Jaclynn~

Up At The Crack Of Dawn~ A Mini Photostory

image

Kaya got out of bed early in the morning, just as she always did, but once again she saw Jenna was up before her.

image

Jenna was just starting to brush her out. “Ouch!” She whispered as she brushed through a knot.

image

“Good monring, Jenna. What are you doing up so early again? Are you not sleeping well?” Kaya asked in a soft whisper. It was very early in the morning and she didn’t want to wake anybody up. “Oh, good morning, Kaya! I’ve been sleepin’ fine. The reason I’ve been getting up so early is because back at the orphanage in Ireland, they would have us get up very early to do our chores. It’s just a habit for me.” Jenna replied in her thick Irish accent.

image

“What about you? Do you always get up this early, too?” Jenna asked.

image

“Yes. Where I come from, I had to get up early, too.” Kaya replied.

image

“Well, I’m gonna go check on the horses now.” Kaya said.

image

“Alrighty then! I’ll just continue doin’ me hair.” Jenna put her hand over her mouth and giggled as she realized that she had spoken a little too loudly. :)

image

So, the last gift I got were the Petals and Plaid PJ’s for Jenna! They’re so adorable!!! πŸ˜€

image

The shirt is so cute and I love how it looks like she’s wearing a tank top under it, but she really isn’t :)

image

The pants have a super cute print and are so silky! I also love the slippers!! The fur around the edge is just adorable!! They are super easy to get on, too! :)

image

I rate this outfit a 10 out of 10! Jenna looks SO cute in these PJ’s and I’m so glad I got them for her! πŸ˜€

Do any of your dolls have accents?

Christmas Haul 2014!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Well, one day late anyways πŸ˜€

I had such a nice Christmas yesterday! I had a good time with my family, eating food, opening great gifts, and playing Super Smash Bros! πŸ˜€

I received a lot of awesome dolly things for Christmas, so I’m going to show you what I got!

image

I got the Rodeo Shopping Outfit from TheQueen’sTreasures from one of my brothers, along with some really cute black boots! I am so in love with leather jackets, and I have wanted this outfit ever since I saw it on DollDiaries because it came with a leather jacket!! All of the pieces are GREAT for mix and match, and I know that Eli will probably be wearing the shirt and jeans occasionally :)

image

Just look at how adorable that jacket is!!! OMGOSH it’s SO cute!!!

image

The boots are really nice! I’m sure I’ll be using these for some of my pirate costumes πŸ˜‰ They are super easy to get on and off, and they use a zipper to close up. So nice!

image

I LOVE these jeans!! The color of them is great!

image

I LOVE this outfit! It’s absolutely adorable and it looks so good on Saige! I rate this outfit a 10 out of 10! πŸ˜€

image

I also got the Paint Filly from my oldest brother!!! She’s SO ADORABLE!! I have always wanted her, so I was really happy to open her! I haven’t had time to decide on a name yet, so that will be announced soon :)

image

Saige is keeping an eye on her. She’s so tiny!

image

Awwww!! What a sweet face!! She’s going to need a really nice name! πŸ˜€

image

My parents got me Addy’s Plaid Summer Set! It is really adorable and I’m just obsessed with that pinafore!

image

The pinafore is really ruffle-y and has two pockets. You can also see the color of the dress better in this picture- it’s pink and brown!! One of my favorite color combos! πŸ˜€

image

The boots are really cute, too! They tie on :)

image

It also came with a huge hairbow! Who doesn’t love big bows? πŸ˜€

image

Felicity looks so pretty in this outfit! I rate it a 10 out of 10! πŸ˜€

image

I got the Easy Breezy Outfit in my stocking! I’ve wanted this outfit ever since it came out, so I’m really happy to have gotten it! The colors are so cute and I really like halter tops! :)

image

The print on the top is so cute!! It’ll be great for spring and summer! πŸ˜€

image

I love the shorts, too! And the pockets!! I’ve always been a person who just shoves everything in my pockets, so pockets are kind of a big thing for me LOL! πŸ˜›

image

And of course, the shoes are adorable! They match the outfit perfectly and they are also easy to get on :)
I rate this outfit a 10 out of 10! πŸ˜€

image

πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

image

I got MAG #61 from my parents!!!! She’s SOO beautiful!!!Β I named her Jenna and her middle name is Faith. I believe her and Samantha will get along really well since they both love fashion! Jenna also likes music and hair styling! She will be added to the Meet My Dolls page soon, so you’ll be able to learn all about her! πŸ˜€

image

And my sister also got me the Bright Stripes Outfit!!! I can’t tell you how much I love this!! It’s a BLAZER!!! I am also obsessed with blazers by the way LOL! πŸ˜› The blazer is such a nice quality! It buttons in easily in front. I forgot to take a picture of the shirt, but it is also super cute! It says “Be smart, be strong, be YOU!” It also comes with a little headband that velcros at the top. So cute :)

image

The jeans are SO cute!! They are a little hard to get on, though. I think Jenna’s legs might be a little larger than normal, but I’m not sure… I still need to experiment with that πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›

image

Look at these shoes!! They’re so adorable!!! πŸ˜€ I rate this outfit a 9.5 out of 10 because of the jeans πŸ˜‰

Now for a photoshoot of Jenna! πŸ˜€

image

Look how pretty her hair is!! It’s so bright!! Her hair is the same style as Annika’s, but I’m trying to make it a different type of curl by finger curling it. I think it’s really pretty! πŸ˜€

image

She isΒ SO photogenic! If it wasn’t so windy and cold I would’ve taken a ton more pictures of her!

image

Doesn’t she have such a sweet face? Her eye color is so pretty!

image

image

Yes, another hair shot πŸ˜€

image

It was SUPER windy outside and I was trying to get a picture of the wind blowing her hair, but for some reason it wasn’t blowing when I wanted it to…. πŸ˜›

image

image

image

Well, that ends this post! I’ll be posting a comparison of Jenna, Saige, and Felicity later today, so be sure to check back! :)

I LOVE everything I got for Christmas SO much!! I will be posting the non- doll related items I got on my other blog, LittleMissFluffet if you’d like to see :)

Now, I would love to know what you all got for Christmas!! Any dolls? Doll clothes?? Please tell! πŸ˜€

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! :)

American Girl Winter Release~ 2014

So how many of you went to the computer right away when you got up in the morning on the winter release date? I’m sure I wasn’t the only one! I was very pleased with this release and a LOT of the new items have made it to my AG wishlist!! πŸ˜€

Now, let’s take a look at the items!

BKH91_main_2

Fair Isle PJ Collection is $64 or you can buy the doll version for $24 or the girl’s size for $40. I absolutely LOVE these PJ’s!! They are so cute and are now on my wishlist πŸ˜€

BKH24SET_main_2

“Hit the Slopes” Collection is $76 (you can buy just the outfit for $34 or the Skis and Helmet for $42) and at first I wasn’t sure what I thought of this outfit, but it has grown on me! I really love that jacket :)

BKH28_main_2

Sparkly Skating Set is $44…. A little on the expensive side πŸ˜› I actually don’t like this outfit. The only thing I like are the ice skates :)

BKH32set_main_2

Pretty Pink Riding Outfit & Helmet is $66 (buy just the outfit for $42) I LOVE THIS!!! I really want this!! The pants and the coat and the boots- AAAHH! SO CUTE!! πŸ˜€

BKH30set_main_2

Western Plaid Outfit & Hat is $54 (Buy just the outfit for $30) and again- I LOVE IT!!! One of my favorite color combos is pink and brown!! I seriously love this outfit!! πŸ˜€

BKH40_main_2

Western Plaid Dress & Belt for Girls is $54 and I think it’s really cute, but too short. πŸ˜‰

BKH36SET_main_2

Prancing Horse & Saddle Set is $136 (buy the horse for $98 or the Saddle and Award Set for $38) and OMGOSH I LOVE this horse!!! I’ve already decided that my dolls need a male horse and that they will name him Brego after a horse in LOTR, LOL πŸ˜›

BKH44_main_2

Winter White Outfit is $38, when I first saw this I thought “Oh, that’s cute!” but when I looked at it more I was like “Oh. Not really.” I’ve never really liked how tights look under shorts and I really don’t think that they should’ve used shorts in this outfit… I’d say the only things I like about this outfit are the vest and the boots. Those boots are just seriously to die for! πŸ˜›

BKH62SET_main_2

Winter White Outfit for Girls $142. I don’t really think much about this outfit πŸ˜‰

BKH46_main_2

Holiday Accessories are $32 and really cute! I love the little shrug and the ornament- it’s just all really cute! I wouldn’t spend over $30 on this set, though πŸ˜›

BKH55_main_2

Happy Holiday Dress is $36 and I’m DYING over its beautiful-ness!!! I love the style of it and how sparkly it is and how pretty it looks on MAG #61!!!! It would be so fun to get this for her on Christmas *wink wink at my mom* LOL πŸ˜€

BKH59SET_main_2

Happy Holiday Outfit for Girls is $132 and while it is very pretty, and I would probably wear it, it is also too short. πŸ˜•

BKH75_main_2

Silver Shimmer Dress is $36 and while it looks pretty, it actually doesn’t seem all that great to me. The shape is a little weird and I think the ruffles start too high. πŸ˜‰

BKH77SET_main_2

Silver Shimmer Outfit for Girls is $80- see what I mean about the shape? It just looks way too square, huh? πŸ˜›

BKH42_main_2

Sparkly Black Flats are $14 and they are really cute! They would go great with a lot of outfits! :)

Now let’s move on to the Bitty stuff!

BKG91_main_2

Teal Tidings Dress is $28 and pretty cute. I’m not so sure what I think about that color right now… Maybe it’s just that color on that doll that I don’t like πŸ˜‰

BKG93_main_2

Teal Tidings Dress for Girls is $54 and just like the doll version- it’s cute :)

BKG89_main_2

Imagine & Play Tent is $195 and SO adorable!! If this was around when I was little, I would’ve loved this!

BKG94_main_2

Little Leopard Snowsuit is $28 and SO CUTE!! The baby looks so cute and cuddly, doesn’t she?? πŸ˜€

BKH04_main_2

Frosty Ice-Skating Outfit is $36 and not really all that great. I really don’t like that the ice skates are felt. That looks really cheesy, AG πŸ˜•

BKH00_main_2

Bitty’s Bib & Sippy is $12 and pretty cute. I think the reason I’m not so fond of it is because I already have a lot of stuff like this for my baby dolls and this just doesn’t scream “ADORABLE” to me LOL πŸ˜›

BKH02_main_2

Tiny Toile Set is $40 and again, it’s pretty cute. I think I’d like it better with a headband instead of a hat :)

BKG96_main_2

Bitty’s Bunny Sleeper is $18, I think it’s really cute! :)

BKG98_main_2

Bitty’s Bunny Bodysuits are $18. I think these are my favorite of the new Bitty Baby stuff! They’re just so basic and practical for babies, so I guess that’s why I like them so much :)

BKG87_main_2

Bitty’s Purple Dragon is $30. It’s really cute and makes me think of an old PBS Kids show I used to watch called Dragon Tales!

Now for the Bitty Twins new stuff!

BKH08_main_2

Ballerina Nightgown is $34 and SO ADORABLE!! Doesn’t Janie look so cute in that?! And I love the snow globe, too!!

BKH12_main_2

Ballerina Nightgown for Girls is $38. I can totally see myself wearing this when I was little! :)

BKH06_main_2

Toy Soldier PJ’s are $34 and SO CUTE!! Jeremy looks so adorable!! Like a little prince!! And I love that nutcracker! It would look so cute on my doll’s mantle! Oh, my gosh! These would be so cute on Elijah! Okay, I need these now πŸ˜€

Now onto my favorite from the release…..
BKH68SET_main_2

Pretty City Carriage and Prancing Horse $373 and I am needing money so badly right now!!! THAT CARRIAGE IS BEAUTIFUL!! Can you just imagine all the photostories this would be great for?! And just SO fun for play, too!! I LOVE the bells and that it comes with a blanket to put over the dolls while they’re taking a ride!! And that the top goes up and down!! Oh, my goodness, girls, I’m dying! How on earth am I going to save up almost $400?! :O There’s no way I can do that, considering how bad I am at saving money. But, yeah, this is my absolute favorite from the release!! πŸ˜€

Again, I think this was a really good release! All of my absolute favorites were the new horse related items :)

What did you think of this release? Anything new added to your wishlist?

The Lilac Tunnel- My Journey with Samantha Book Review

A few days ago, my mom and I stopped by Michael’s Craft Store (for another reason that I’ll be telling you all about soon! πŸ˜€ ) and while we were there, I stumbled across The Lilac Tunnel My Journey With Samantha book! My mom bought it for me to read for school and I was so hooked with this book, that it was hard for me to put it down!

image

The front cover is so pretty!

image

I took a picture of the description of it on the back, too :)
(psst! Click on the picture so you can read it! πŸ˜‰ )

image

I love this little introduction! Just reading it, you KNOW that you’re going to love this book! πŸ˜€

So, let’s get on with the review!

How much is the book? It is $9.99 and totally worth it!

What is the book about? You’re a 10 year- old, modern day girl who is given a locket and when you open it up- you are transported back in time to 1904. There you meet Samantha who ends up being one of your best friends :)

image

Why do you love the book so much? I think the main reason why I love this book so much is because you can read the story so many different ways, and yet it all still has the same concept. Above is an example where you choose what happens next. And once you end that version of the story- you can go back and see how it ends when you make a different decision. It’s just such a neat idea and I love the creativity that is put into this book :)

Would you buy another “My Journey With __” book? Absolutely!! I would love to have them all someday! This is a book that I can read again and again! I highly recommend this book!

What do you think of the “Journey” books?Β

American Girl New Release~ June 26th, 2014

OMGOSH!!! I think I was having a heart attack (not literally πŸ˜‰ ) over everything πŸ˜› ALL of the new outfits, furniture, pets, accessories- AAAAH!!! I’m just dying (again, not literally πŸ˜› ) over everything!!!! πŸ˜€

I am now going to show you EVERY single new item (except for books) and what I think about them, so get ready for a LONG post! πŸ˜€

We’re gonna start with the pets and pet stuff:

BKB77_main_2

Coconut the Puppy $28- Okay, I seriously love this new version of Coconut! I think she’s so much cuter!! And she has such a sweet little baby face! :)

BKB79_main_2

Corgi Puppy $28- Well…. He’s okay. I’d probably like him better in person πŸ˜›

BKB81_main_2

Chocolate Lab Puppy $28- He is so cute! Yeah, I immediately saw it as a boy. LOL!

BKB83_main_2

Dalmatian Puppy $28- Okay, why am I so in love with this little puppy?! I haven’t really decided if I see it as a boy or a girl yet, LOL! Oh! And can I say that I LOVE how they can actually move now??? And apparently they have magnets in their mouth area now since they can hold they’re toys. That’s pretty cool!

BKB85_main_2

Apricot Poodle Puppy $28- This puppy is cute, but not cute enough to wear I’d buy it. I love the fluffiness of it, though! And when I saw the color I thought it’d be really cool if AG someday makes a Golden Retriever. I would definitely buy that :)

BKB97_main_2

Now for Isabelle:

BJY67_main_2

Isabelle’s Sparkle Dress $36- This is SOOO PRETTY!!! Although it’s see-through, so my dolls would wear something underneath πŸ˜‰ Okay, now why would they use the same name “Sparkle Dress” for Isabelle when they already used that for Saige?! That kinda makes me mad… But not super mad… LOL! πŸ˜›

BJY69_main_2

Isabelle’s Makeup Set $36- I think it’s so cool that they made a makeup set!! And it’s SUPER cute, too! πŸ˜€

Now, for what we’ve all been waiting for……

G0605_main_3

MAG #61 has ARRIVED!!!!! She is absolutely gorgeous!!! I have already seen pictures of her and decided that I’m buying her (when I get the money) and naming her Jenna! A LOT of people think she looks like Saige, but they are a lot different. Saige’s hair is a darker red, she has blue eyes, and freckles. #61’s hair is a brighter red, she has green eyes, and no freckles. Honestly, the only same thing about them is the face mold. And the doll that she really looks like is Felicity. But I’m still gonna buy her because I’m totally in love with her! πŸ˜€

I think that this release was AMAZING!!Β I hope you all enjoyed seeing what I think about everything! I’d love to know what you think, too! :)

My New American Girl Outfits- A Photoshoot and Reviews

Oh, my goodness! I LOVE all of my new outfits! I’m going to show you pics of my dolls wearing them and also do mini reviews! Let’s start with Kaya in the Purple Peacock PJ’s.

IMG_3856

Okay, can I just say adorable?! Kaya look so pretty in purple and I have a feeling she’ll look good in a lot of dark colors. She also looks good in bright colors πŸ˜‰

IMG_3857

Here’s a close up of the shirt. When you just glance at it you can’t really tell that it’s peacocks on there, but when you get up close and study it, it is very noticeable. I think this shirt is really cute!

IMG_3858

Here are the slippers. They are a lot different from the other slippers I have, being not as stiff. These ones are kind of floppy. They are very soft and oh, so cute! I rate this outfit 5 (out of 5) stars!

Now moving on to Saige in Saige’s Sweater Outfit!

IMG_3860

I couldn’t resist putting her next to her Painting Set! She looks so cute!

IMG_3862

This is actually a very pretty outfit and will be great for mix and match!

IMG_3864

I love that the tank top has a cool design on it instead of being just plain. Something strange, is that it only velcros halfway down. The sweater is very soft, but can be a little difficult to style just right. Other than that, it’s perfect!

IMG_3865

The sandals are adorable and will go with so many things! The jeggings are really nice, but since they are so tight, they are kind of hard to get on. Once you get the feet through they are easy to slip up πŸ˜‰
I rate this outfit 4.5 (out of 5) stars.

Moving on to Annika in the Cozy Sweater Outfit!

IMG_3867

Annika is SO excited to finally have this outfit! She had her eyes on this for quite a while (doesn’t she look so cute?!?) πŸ˜‰

IMG_3868

This sweater is very soft and easy to put on. I find it a little odd that this also doesn’t velcro all the way down the back.

IMG_3869

This headband is so cute and easy to slip over her head as it is pretty stretchy.

IMG_3871

The boots are adorable!! I love the little buttons on the side!
These boots were very hard to pull on over the pants. I was working with them for a long time until I finally got them on.
The leggings are very cute and easier to slip on than the ones in Saige’s Sweater Outfit.
I rate this outfit 4.5 (out of 5) stars!

Now, Caroline in the Frosty Fair Isle Outfit!

IMG_3872

Ooooh, my gosh!! Caroline looks so beautiful in this outfit! Her light hair and eyes with this outfit just makes me die!

IMG_3873

This has got to be the softest sweater EVER!! When I took it out of the box I was like “Oh, my gosh!! This SOO SOFT!!” I really want a sweater like this πŸ˜€
This is a really nice sweater and I absolutely love it! I have nothing negative to say about it!

IMG_3874

These boots are amazing! They’re really floppy, but hard at the bottom. They are super easy to slip on. I love the little snowflake dangles (“Let it go!” LOL!)!!
The leggings are really cute, a tad hard to get on, but not too bad πŸ˜‰

IMG_3875

Okay, the headband is cute, but it is SO hard to get over her head! It’s not stretchy at all which makes it even harder to get on. AG should’ve made it stretchy, that would solve everything πŸ˜‰
I rate this outfit 4.5 (out of 5) stars. If the headband fit better, it would be a 5!

Kirsten in the Western Riding Outfit!

IMG_3876

Kirsten looks so sweet in this outfit!! I really love her in red πŸ˜€

IMG_3877

The shirt is SO cute!! Look at the face on that horse!! It is so sweet! :)

IMG_3878

The skirt is adorable! I love that it’s jean and that it has fringes!

IMG_3880

The boots are so cowgirl-ish and cute! I just know that the girls will be wearing this outfit a lot when they take care of the horses :)

IMG_3879

I didn’t even notice that this outfit came with a bracelet! How cute is that? I really like that it’s braided!
This outfit is 5 (out of 5) stars! No complaints at all!

IMG_3881

Well, that ends our Photoshoot and Reviews for today! Don’t they all look adorable?? Here’s a question for you; Who do you think looks cutest in their outfit?
