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! 😀
Now, let’s get on to the photoshoot and review!
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
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
Her outfit is ADORABLE and great quality!
I love the colors of the dress so much! It looks really beach-y and sorta candy shop-ish to me 😀 The stripes are white, coral, red, and mint
I really like the bits of ribbon and two bows and the sweetheart neckline, SO cute! 😀
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
She comes with her hair styled in a high ponytail. Her curls are so pretty and I love the color of her hair!! 😀 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! 😛
The ribbon bow is attached to a hair scrunchie.
Here’s the back of the shrug so you can see the lovely details. I love the design!
Her shoes are some of my favorite AG shoes, I think! They velcro on nicely
Well, I think that wraps up the review! Now get ready for just pictures! 😀
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 😉
I LOVE the sun ray shining down on this one! 😀
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
It was the biggest night of the entire year – the Duke and Duchess’ Annual Springtime Ball. I had not wished to go because I never did too well at large parties, balls, or anything such as that, but I knew I had to. If I hadn’t accepted the generous invitation – which was shocking I’d even received one – My family and I would have been completely disgraced. So at the ball, I did my best to engage with some of the other rich girls, but that didn’t go so well. I ended up listening more than talking.
I looked behind me and saw a young man watching the men and women dance away to the music.
Wait a second. I knew that face.
My heart was racing and I found it hard for me to breathe. “Calm. Stay calm.” I told myself.
“Please excuse me, ladies.” I said politely with a quick curtsy.
As I hurried toward the exit, someone tapped my shoulder.
“May I have this dance?” That horrid man inquired with a bow.
Knowing how improper it would be for me to refuse, I reluctantly said, “You may.”
We danced in silence for a moment. I didn’t dare speak or even look at him in the eye. I completely and utterly despised him.
“You know why I’m here, Liesel.” He whispered with a threatening tone.
“On the contrary, Frederic, I have no idea why you’re here.” I stated, still not even making eye contact.
“I need you to do something for me.” He began, his eyes squinted and cruel. He continued on to say, “And you will do it, because I’ve got a bit of leverage, which is something you’ll never have on me.”
“And what is that?” I questioned with disgust. “I knew your father. I know what he was and what he did. And I also know how you and your family have tried to hide it all your lives, but the truth has a way of coming out one way or another. Get me what I need, and I’ll keep your little secret.” Frederic offered. I was trying so hard to get the tears in my eyes to disappear. I knew that if I didn’t do what he wanted, he would expose the truth to everyone and our family would be shamed for eternity.
Anger and fear boiled up inside of me and I pushed myself away from him and fled from the palace, leaving Frederic standing alone with a scowl on his face.
That concludes part 1!!! 😀 😀
Hey everyone! Before I get into the dolly part of this post, lemme just wish my oldest brother, Jacob a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! 😀
Alrighty, now back to the posty (I add y’s to words sometimes because it’s fun LOL!)!
Yes, I got MAG – or now I should say, TrulyMe – #59!!! When my mom peeked in my room to see what dolls were on my wishlist, she got her for me from Jill’s Steals and Deals and I was SO excited!! I’m considering adding freckles to her so she will look more like me… What do you think?
Anyways, yesterday after I finished taking pictures for the photostory, I instantly did a photoshoot of Jocelyn! 😀
She is SO cute!! Her hair is kinda hard for styling, but it’ll be okay. It’s not much different from “Jane’s” Oh! And Jocelyn’s middle name is Marie! 😀
I’m not sure what her personality is yet. It’s so hard to think of different personalities when you have 20 dolls LOL! She’s obviously an animal lover, though 😀
I love her chocolate eyes
Her hair is so pretty! The color is VERY close to mine, only I have red highlights 😉
I FINALLY MUSTERED UP MY COURAGE AND WENT NEAR THE SCARY FLOWERS!!!! LOLOL!!! We’ve always had these pretty flowers in our backyard but I’ve always been so scared to get anywhere near them! I always think that there are rats or something living in there LOL! 😀 XD
Jocelyn is a very beautiful and rather photogenic doll and I am so grateful to have her! She will be added to the “Meet My Dolls” page just as soon as I can come up with a personality for her!
Do you think I should add freckles to Jocelyn? Do you have any suggestions for a personality?
Have a great day, everyone! 😀
Following my new mom’s directions, I headed out back to introduce myself to a couple of my many new siblings. I saw a boy and a girl playing with a little gray husky puppy. They looked friendly, but I myself have always been a shy girl and always felt a little insecure when meeting new people. I wished that my mom, Jaclynn was here to introduce me, but she had something very important to do, so I was on my own. I took a deep breath in and slowly let it out. Okay, I can do this.
I hesitantly walked over to them, but they were so distracted with the puppy that they didn’t even notice I was there. I had hoped they would notice me so they would start up a conversation, but now it was up to me. What was I to say? I guess that “hi” would work, but I felt like my voice would be so soft that they wouldn’t hear me, so instead I cleared my throat to get their attention.
They quickly looked my way, their faces very confused. The puppy however, seemed delighted to see me and started running over to me. The girl called out, “Pepper! Come here!”, but he didn’t listen. He kept right on running until he reached-
-my feet. His tiny tongue tickled so much as he licked away at my toes, I couldn’t help but giggle.
I reached down and gave his ear a little scratch.
“He really likes you!” The girl said kindly and I smiled. “So, who are you?” The boy inquired, still seeming confused.
“I’m Jocelyn. I’m your new sister…” I replied questioningly. I didn’t understand why they were so confused. I thought Jaclynn would have told them I was coming…
The boy and girl looked at each other with surprise. “I can’t believe mommy didn’t tell us!” The girl said in disbelief.
They both came closer and the girl said, “My name is Kiara and this is Dallas.”
“And that’s Pepper.” Dallas announced as he gestured to the little puppy resting by my feet.
“I’m sorry if we seemed a little rude. We were just really caught off guard when you told us you were our sister.” Kiara apologized.
“Oh, it’s okay! I understand.” I assured her.
“So how old are you?” Dallas questioned.
“Fifteen.” I replied.
“You seem to have a really nice way with animals. Do you have a pet?” Kiara inquired.
“No, I don’t, but I have always wanted a dog and a horse!” I said dreamily.
Kiara gasped. “We have to have Lissie, Saige, and Kaya show her the horses!” She exclaimed, looking at Dallas with a huge smile on her face.
“You have horses?!” I asked excitedly and probably a little too loudly. This place just suddenly got amazing!
“Yeah! We have two horses and three foals!” Kiara said, smiling broadly.
“Oh, my gosh!! FOALS?!” I squealed.
I eagerly followed Dallas into the house, with Kiara and Pepper not far behind.
Horses? Foals?! Even with how shy I am, my excitement over something can really help me feel so comfortable around people. And Dallas and Kiara were really nice, so I was sure that if the others were anything like them, I was going to absolutely love it here.
With help from
Heeeelloooo everyone! Wow, I guess I’m a little excited right now LOL! Okay, well, I 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? 😀
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!
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
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!
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
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!
Here’s a bonus pic of Kiara since she looked so adorable
“Who could it be? This
animal dolly who I did see? Can you help me guess this mysteryyyy?” If you know what that song is from, that is awesome! LOL! 😀
I got MAG #39!!! She is SO adorable and I’m so happy to have her!! 😀 She’s going to take over and explain some things to you now
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!
As I’m sure you have noticed, Jaclynn bought me the Starry Hoodie Outfit! It is so comfy and I just love it!
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…
The sweatshirt is very soft, therefore making it suuuuper comfy!!
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!!
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…
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?
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
Now, then here’s the answer to why I can’t tell you my name yet- I’m incomplete.
I can tell you that I’m 14, I love chinchillas, and the rest I can’t just straight up tell you.
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!!!
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!! 😀
Have a nice night everyone!
My friend, Emma got me a Barbie for my birthday and I absolutely adore her! She is super photogenic and now I want more of the newer Barbies, cause I kinda discovered a new thing I like to do- take pictures of Barbies!! So here is a photoshoot of Arabella 😀
She has such beautiful hair and her eyes are just gorgeous!
This is one of my favorite pictures!
And now, Arabella waves goodbye to you all! Oh, and here are a few edited pictures:
Which picture is your favorite? Would you like to see more Barbie photoshoots?
P.S. Today is the last day to enter to win the Hobbit outfit in my 2 Year Blogiversary giveaway! Enter before midnight tonight (PST) to be entered for a chance to win!
“Well, I’m gonna go get a cupcake.” Kristoff said, raising to his feet.
“So, do you think Rebecca’s petition worked?” Annika asked her sister.
“Mommy definitely seemed to be considering the idea when we gave it to her. I really hope she listens to it, though! It would be so good for Eli, and Kristoff, too!” Jess said hopefully and Annika nodded her head.
“Kristoff I already told you, ask mommy if you can have a third cupcake and then I’ll give you one.” Jess told her little brother. “But, she’s probably busy!” Kristoff protested. “Kristoff, just go ask her!” Jess ordered.
“What’s goin’ on?” Eli asked Annika who shrugged her shoulders. She was just as clueless as he was.
After a few minutes, Riven-Delle came in the room with a huge smile on her face. “Annika, Jess! It worked! The petition we all signed, you know? Mommy listened to it!” Riven-Delle said so quickly that it was hard for Annika and Jess to understand what was going on.
“Oh, my gosh!! A new brother AND sister?! We expected a brother, but oh my, what a surprise to get another sister, too!!” Annika squealed. “My name is Annika, and this is Elijah, but we call him Eli, and there’s Kristoff and Jess.” Annika continued, pointing to each one.
“It’s nice to meet you! I’m Julie and I’m 12. I heard about the petition you all signed for mommy to get Eli another brother. That was really nice of you guys!” Julie said with a smile. Eli smiled broadly in shock when he heard this. Only a few weeks ago, Eli had been wanting a brother more his own age. He had told Riven-Delle about it, so he guessed that she must have told everyone else. He was so blown away and extremely appreciative to all his sisters.
“Hey, Eli! Hi Kristoff! You already know this, but my name is Dallas. I’m 10.” Dallas introduced himself to his new brothers.
“Hi.” Kristoff said shyly.
“I love video games! Hey, lemme show you my little bedroom corner, as I like to call it. You’ll probably be sharing with me now!” Eli said excitedly.
“So where do you come from, Julie?” Annika asked her new sister. “I lived at an orphanage in San Francisco. Dallas was there too!” Julie replied.
“Oh, how magnifique (mah-nyee-feek)! I’ve always wanted to visit San Francisco! Have you gone across the bridge?” Riven-Delle wondered.
“Oh, yeah! I’ve gone across the bridge a few times!” Julie said with a smile. She was happy that someone was interested in what she had to tell about San Francisco.
“So, how did mommy come to adopt you?” Jess asked.
Julie smiled and said, “Well, as she was waiting to meet with Dallas, I was sitting right next to her, waiting to meet some other people who wanted to adopt me, but that didn’t end up working out. Anyways, her and I were talking a lot, and well, we just felt a special connection. So after she had spoken with Dallas, she talked to me some more, and asked if I’d like to come live with her. And I agreed whole-heartedly!” Annika sighed. “That is so sweet! I’m so glad you came to live with us, Julie!”
Riven-Delle placed her arm around Julie and said, “I am, too! Well, we should all go in the living room with the others and get to know Julie and Dallas a little
EEEEEE!!! I LOVE JULIE SO MUCH!! She arrived today and I am DYING!! I bought her when she went on sale for $55 with her pajamas!!! I just love her so much!!! 😀
Speaking of Dallas, here he is!! My parents got me a used Molly for my birthday so I could change her into a custom boy doll!! I think he’s so cute! 😀
Isn’t he so cute?! I just love him! Oh, and his middle name is Peter And do you know what this means?!?! NOW I CAN MAKE MY PIRATE SERIES!!!! EEEEEE!!! 😀
Do you have Julie or a custom boy doll?
Josefina let out a long sigh. “I can’t believe we’re already getting another sister!! Jenna just arrived! That isn’t fair to her!” Josefina complained.
“I know, this is really soon, but mommy said that this girl really needed help. The orphanage called and asked if mommy would take her in.” Annika explained.
“Yes, that’s true. Although I feel a little bit awkward about getting another sister so soon, I’m trying to stay positive.” Jenna said, who always liked to be positive and look on the bright side.
“You should feel awkward! I bet you’re not even used to all of us yet, and just a week later you have to welcome a new sister.” Josefina said. She was always annoyed to get a new brother or sister and truly believed that I should not adopt anymore.
“Don’t listen to her, Jenna. Mommy loves us all so much, and we all love each other, too.” Annika said with a smile.
“Here she comes…” Josefina said with a sigh.
“Girls, this is your new sister, Riven-Delle. I’ll be right back. I think I heard Caleb and Kendra yelling, so I’m assuming they’re fighting, but this is a good opportunity for you to get to know one another.” I said, smiling, and hurried off to check on the twins.
“Bonjour!” Riven-Delle said excitedly. She was so happy to see such nice looking girls her own age, and she loved knowing that she belonged to a family once again.
“Oui!” Riven-Delle replied.
“Do you speak any English?” Josefina asked, feeling annoyed.
“Oh, yes, sorry. I lived in Paris my entire life, so I’m still getting used to using the English words more often.” Riven-Delle explained through her French accent.
“Don’t worry about using your French here, Riven-Delle. I think it would be neat to hear some more! Maybe you could even teach us!” Annika encouraged and Riven-Delle smiled.
“Yeah, it is! Your coat is so amazing! It’s so fashionable! Samantha will love it, too!” Jenna poured out her compliments.
That ends part 1! 😀
Do your dolls ever get tired of getting new sisters?
Yesterday, I went to the thrift store with my mom and sister. There were SO many dolls, it was amazing!! Although we had 6 dolls in our hands, I had to choose one to buy. Let me show you who I got – I’m so in love with her! 😀
Can you guess what doll she is?
If you guessed Karito Kids Leza, then you are correct! We got her for $6- a great price! She had so many marks on her and her hair was a complete mess! The ends of her hair are still not in the best condition, but with the way we styled it, you can hardly tell!
Her hair and eye color are so pretty!
In case you’re wondering, to get off all of the marks that were on her vinyl, I used Magic Eraser. There are still a few marks that won’t come off, though. I’ll probably try something else And as for her hair, I washed it with shampoo and conditioner, combed it out and set her down to dry. Within a few hours, her hair was dry! My mom also cut her hair for me and styled it with her hair straightener. I wish her hair could’ve been longer, but apparently her previous owner gave her a really uneven hair cut
Her pretty hair
I LOVE this picture!! 😀
Oh, my goodness, it was so funny! Right when I took this picture and right when the sun came out, I felt a drop of water on my hand – it started raining!! There was a rainbow, too! I love rainbows 😀
And here is a height comparison of Belinda and Kaya. As you can see, Lindy is much taller!
They’re so sweet!! 😀
Have you ever heard of Karito Kids Dolls?
Me and Emma! YAY! Unfortunately, we can’t post pictures with Ginger Spice, because she wants to remain a secret identity 😉 As you can see, Emma is much taller than I am, even though I’m older LOL! XD 😛
Here’s me trying to get a Grace doll LOL! That guy was putting some more Grace dolls in place, and when he noticed I wanted one, he handed one to me, and it was perfect!! That was literally the fastest experience of “choosing” a doll EVER!!
Me with Grace, and Emma digging through the others, trying to find the right one
We have our DOLLIES!!! LOL!
Here’s a side view of Grace in her City Outfit. I love how they styled her hair!!!
Oh. My. Goodness. This is like the most amazing thing EVER!!! The quality of her bakery is incredible!! It’s made of wood and the doors open and close nicely. There are so many adorable accessories that come with it (AG says it comes with over 60 accessories!!), and I love the refrigerator and oven and all the adorable foods!! I know practically everyone is saying that it’s way overpriced, but I really have to disagree. First of all, yes, it is AG, and AG has high prices- that’s totally normal, so I’m not really surprised by the price. Second, it’s made of wood- that adds to the price. Third, it has over 60 accessories!! And fourth, the detail on everything is AMAZING! It all looks so realistic!! So, yes, it is a high price, but honestly, if I had $500 to spare, I would buy it! I think it’s definitely worth the price! You don’t have to agree and it’s okay to disagree, cause everyone has their opinions, but I just wanted to get my opinion out there
Emma taking a picture LOL!
The cabinet is so adorable!!
The Baking Accessories are SO CUTE!! I LOVE the mixer and the tablet!! 😀
This outfit is so adorable!! It’s weird, because on every picture AG has (that I’ve seen) the cupcakes on the shirt are upside down, but they actually aren’t! I really don’t understand why their pictures are like that…
Me and Emma with the photo op! I think it’s the cutest little set up!
I really like her beret! If I continue to want one for my dolls, I’ll probably crochet one
I don’t really care for this outfit, but I’m sure a lot of girls do. I just love the hairstyle they did on her with that outfit!! Her hair looks so poofy! Though you can’t tell in this picture LOL 😛
Baking Outfit!! I just adore that apron! 😀
Here’s the full display
I am so in love with this outfit!! Pink looks SO good on her!! 😀
I love her Travel Coat!! I’m so happy I was able to get this! And also, gotta love the hairstyle 😛
Her pajamas are so stinkin’ cute!! And again, love the hairstyle!! LOLOL! Okay, I’ll stop saying that XD
I love this shot!! I had my mom taking pictures for me so that I could look around more easily, and she literally read my mind, cause right when I saw this display, I wanted the exact shot! 😀
Would you just die over this window display with me? I literally could have just stood and drooled over it all day! 😛 This is the best window display I have ever seen!!!
Then it was time to go home! And of course, I went back to Emma’s house afterwards so that we could play with our new dolls! What a fun day!!!! 😀
Did you go to the GOTY debut? Do you plan on getting Grace?
