WellieWishers Willa Doll Review

Hi everyone!!

I guess the title gives it away, but YES! I got Willa!!! I’ve had her for a few weeks now and just yesterday got around to taking pictures of her (sorry for my absence by the way. I’ve been having trouble with finding time to take pictures…)



Isn’t she too cute! *heart eyes*


Here is a closeup of Willa’s face. She has ADORABLE freckles sprinkled across her nose and stunning hazel eyes! She has orange feathered eyebrows and a sweet little smile with 2 teeth showing.


Willa comes wearing this red and pink hedgehog Β shirt that velcros in the back. The face is printed on and two little ears stick up at the corners.


I absolutely love her skirt!! THE HEDGEHOGS ARE SO CHUBBY!! There’s a little knot at the side of her skirt and it is trimmed in red.


Her little bunny ears headband is the same print as the skirt with pink trim to match the shirt. The headband is fabric until it reaches the underneath part where it’s just elastic (and has a humongous tag). It’s easy to slip on and off the doll’s head.


Her Wellies are adorable little ladybugs. They’re a little difficult to get on and off.

Of course I had to show a closeup of its cute little face πŸ™‚


Willa’s hair is strawberryΒ blonde and is the exact same color as Maryellen’s hair.


She has several highlights in her hair.


Okay, so I know this is awkward, but I felt it needed to be shown. When you take off her underwear there’s a little Wellie Wishers logo engraved on her. Also, Willa is all vinyl and has a cute little belly button πŸ˜‰ Β There is also “American Girl made in China” and some numbers engraved on the back.


The Wellie Wishers are $60 and I think perhaps slightly overpriced. Normally I say AG’s things are worth the money and while I absolutely ADORE Willa, I don’t think she should be a $60 doll πŸ˜‰ I think $45 might be a better price for them.
AG says they are for ages 5+ and I feel like that’s accurate πŸ™‚


You knew it was coming, didn’t you? XD Time for a PHOTOSHOOT! πŸ˜€


I forgot to mention that her head is always in a tilted up position. I think it’s adorable and will probably work well for when she looks up to the AG dolls πŸ˜‰



I went into the sunlight and used the gold side of my reflector for a different lighting. What do you think?



I don’t know why, but the reflector didn’t shine a golden light in this photo… My mom really liked this pic, so I decided to post it anyway πŸ™‚



Well, there you are! Willa is simply adorable and quite photogenic! I’d like to take her to a park sometime and get more pictures of her πŸ™‚ And yes, the Wellie Wishers are perfect little sisters for AG dolls πŸ˜‰

What do you think of the Wellie Wishers? Are any of them on your WISHlist? (Haha, get it? XD)Β 

Have a great day everyone! And I hope to start posting more soon! πŸ™‚

Pretty Plaid Shirt & Purple Play Shorts ~Review and Photoshoot

Hi everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t been posting a ton lately, but I’m gonna try to change that πŸ˜‰
I was going to post Masquerade last night, but that didn’t end up working out, so I’ll probably have it up tomorrow πŸ™‚
Anyway, a week or 2 ago, a package from AG arrived with some surprises from my mom! Today I finally got to take pics for a review and photoshoot of 2 of the items, so let’s get on with it, shall we? πŸ™‚



Here is the Pretty Plaid Shirt. Right when I saw this online, I died (but then, what else is new? XD)!
The shirt is made a of a very thin material, but I don’t see it ripping or anything. It is dark blue with stripes of, I’d say sea green and pink. Everyone sees colors differently, and that’s what I see when I look at the shirt πŸ™‚

It has 4 working buttons which are surprisingly easy to use. I prefer to leave the top button unbuttoned at the collar.

It has a cute little pocket that you could actually put something in.

The sleeves go down to about an inch above the wrist where they cuff up. They can not be rolled down as it is sewn on the side.

On the bottom of the shirt there’s a little metal American Girl tag.

The shirt is made to be tied in a knot. I think they made it long enough for people to tie easily, but then, I do have tiny hands πŸ˜‰ I was really glad that my doll could still wear the shirt tied without it exposing the stomach. I was a little worried about that at first πŸ˜‰

This is what the shirt looks like untied. Not very appealing, but maybe if you wanted to pair it with a skirt tucked in, you could do that πŸ™‚

The Purple Play Shorts are adorable and match perfectly with this outfit! As you can see, they are a bit too short, but all AG’s shorts and skirts these days are too short. Thankfully they’re just dolls πŸ˜‰

There are only 2 belt loops in the front, which I think is a little odd… The lavender shorts have coral stitching.


There are 2 back pockets.

An American Girl tag is on the left pocket.

If you pull down the shorts just a tad, your doll can put her thumbs in her pockets which looks super cute πŸ˜‰

Just another shot πŸ˜‰

I rate the Pretty Plaid Shirt 5 out of 5 stars. I don’t have a problem with it at all!
I rate the shorts 4 out of 5 stars due to the length and only 2 belt loops. That just seems really strange to me XD

So, now it’s time for a long photoshoot because Jocelyn looks adorable and I got up early to take these pics, so I had to take advantage of the shade and non overwhelming heat while I could! XD

I got so much bokeh in my photos today!! *squeal*




Mysterious…. XD


I haven’t taken a photoshoot in forever, guys! I didn’t realize how much I missed it! *cries* LOL! JK ;D


Β 


Do you ever suddenly find a cut on yourself and you’re like – where on earth did that come from? XD Okay, that was random…..


Β 

Everybody in their Sunday best…. (I’m trying a new thing. Putting random thoughts and whatnot into my photoshoots. How do you like it? XD)


I was really happy with how this turned out πŸ™‚

Which one do you like best – this one or the other one?

Oh bokeh, oh bokeh, I love you so much. You bring spots of gladness into our lives. Why then, oh bokeh, must you be so hard to get in my photos?! XD


Isn’t Jocelyn so pretty? *heart eyes*


All done!! If you read this entire post, I congratulate you! XD

I should have another review and photoshoot up soon, so stay tuned! πŸ™‚

Do you ever say something completely random that makes no sense? I’m asking because I was just going to end this post by asking “what do you want for waffles?” XD I think I’m tired….Β 

Have a wonderful day!

Photoshoot at Gramma’s!

Hey everyone! First, I just want to say thank you all for your prayers and kind words during the loss of my grandpa. They really meant a lot and I want you all to know that I am doing great! πŸ™‚

My mom and I stayed with my gramma for a whole week and just got back on Saturday. I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to be HOME! *lets out a contented sigh*

While I was at my gramma’s house, I took a photoshoot of Leia in her beautiful backyard! There are a lot of pics, so get comfy! ;D

Told you that was a lot! XD

I hope you enjoyed the pictures! I had so much fun taking them- her backyard is amazing! πŸ˜€

I’m having a craving to make a photostory pretty soon here…. YAY! πŸ˜€

What’s the longest you’ve been away from home?Β

P.S. I HAVE 97 FOLLOWERS!! So close to 100!! *squeals* Once I hit 100 followers, I’ll have another giveaway ;D

The Daisy~ A Photoshoot

Hey everyone! Did I really go a week without doing a post? Oopsie… I guess I was writing a lot last week πŸ˜›

The other day I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw some AMAZING pictures of a boy and girl doll and they made them look like a couple. It was the cutest thing ever. So it inspired me to do that with my dolls! I had so much fun doing this and I hope you enjoy these just as much as I enjoyed taking them! πŸ™‚










Aren’t they ADORABLE?!?! It makes me want to make more boy dolls XD

Literally, it was perfect – as I was making this post, I See The Light from TangledΒ was playing. That was just amazing. If you want a special effect to this post, I suggest listening to that song as you read through it ;D

Also, I’m gonna try to get a photostory up this week! Yay! XD

Which picture was your favorite? Would you like to see more of these?

Experimenting With The Reflector

A few weeks ago I went outside and took some pictures of Rebecca with my new reflector. I’ve decided to share them all with you, even though quite a few of them are terrible XD But there are a few that I really love, so join me as we take a peek at my experiments…

The reflector wasn’t even shining on her in this pic XD

This one is kinda pretty πŸ™‚

This looks kinda magical to me πŸ™‚


Look at that adorable little bokeh!!


Ooh! I really like this one! XD



Rebecca is just – so beautiful!!! :O



Oh gosh, that bokeh is not in a good spot XD


She looks really pretty in this pic, but the lighting just isn’t good.Β And her hair is so messy. It was super windy that day πŸ˜›



This is my favorite picture!!! I think I might make this her profile pic… πŸ™‚



So that was the last one! Did you like seeing all of these pics? Which ones did you like? πŸ™‚

Colonial Chanting Crickets~ A Photoshoot of the Beautiful Samantha (with a very weird & random title)

Hey Ho! Okay, first, I know the title is weird and extremely random, but I thought of the first three words that came to my mind that began with the letter “C” and just typed it, so that’s the strange reason behind the random title. XD

I’ve been feeling that Samantha has been lacking of attention lately, so I grabbed her, curled her hair, and headed outside for a quick photoshoot. I hope you enjoy the photos! πŸ™‚

  
  
  
I think Samantha looks amazing in white! I always like brunettes in white- it just flows so well, don’t you think? πŸ™‚

  
  
  
At least part of the title makes sense – she is dressed as a colonial girl after all πŸ˜‰

  

  
  
 
 

     

 
Bouncy, flouncy, yippee ki-ay! 

That’s all folks! I’m very tired… Hence the randomness in this post. I’m gonna go crochet and watch Anne of Green Gables now (the second one- my fave!!) πŸ™‚

Have you watched the Anne of Green Gables movies?

My GOTY Collections~ Grace Edition

Hiii! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. There’s been so much going on, this is the first day I’ve stayed home in days! But, I’m here bringing you a new series on my blog! *celebrates*

After each GOTY doll retires, I will be showing you what I got from their collection. I’ll have to do a few this year since I have a few GOTY dolls, but I think it’ll be something fun to do and plus, it’s always fun knowing what people have in their doll collection, right? ;D

  
This is everything I got last year from Grace’s collection! Yep, it’s all clothes! While I did love her entire collection, I didn’t end up getting any of her accessories, which is totally fine! I loved her Baking Accesories, but maybe I can get them on eBay sometime πŸ™‚

  
 Here is Annika modeling Grace’s Sightseeing Outfit! This is one of my absolute favorite outfits of hers – and probably just in general! I love the colors and the style- so, so cute!

  
And obviously, I got Grace (although she was renamed to Riven-Delle)! SHE IS THE MOST PHOTOGENIC DOLL ON EARTH!!!!! *dies*

  
Ahem. Sorry about that. But seriously, isn’t her hair amazing? Like, come on, those highlights! :O (also, I couldn’t find her charm bracelet at the moment, so that’s unfortunately not shown…)

  
Here’s Caroline in Grace’s Travel Coat! This has to be one of my favorite pieces ever! I use this coat so much, I think at least one of my dolls is always wearing it!

  
And (haha, I almost revealed her true identity to all of you XD ) here is JANE (yes, Jane… *smirk*) modeling Grace’s Opening Night Outfit! Again, I couldn’t find the headband, so that’s not shown either. UGH! I literally JUST saw it yesterday and now it’s gone! *sobs over the loss of the lovely headband* Anyways, this dress is gorgeous!! And those SHOES!!!

  
Time for bonus pics! πŸ˜€

  
I shadowed Annika with the black side of my reflector – dark and beautiful πŸ™‚

  
  
Awesome camera + miraculous reflector = beautiful picture. In case you didn’t know, I got a reflector for my birthday and it is AMAZING!! These pictures would have been so much darker without it! 

  
Glitter! πŸ˜€

  
Now I’m using the gold side of my reflector- see how the lighting changed? πŸ™‚

  
Well, that’s all for today! I’ll be back soon – hopefully to show you my dollhouse along with an announcement! πŸ˜€

What did you get from Grace’s Collection?

A Birthday Wish~ A Photoshoot

Hi there!! πŸ˜€

Sooo…. How many of you know what today is? IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!! I am 17 years old today! Isn’t that crazy and weird? XD

So the plan for today is that we’re gonna eat lunch and then my mom and I are going clothes shopping! We’ll come back and celebrate with a Star Wars themed birthday (I’ll probably be posting pics of the decorations and stuff later) and instead of a cake we’re going to stack up some Krispy Kreme donuts and have those. So yeah, I’m really excited!! πŸ˜€

Now, let’s move on to the photoshoot, shall we? πŸ™‚

 

Does Kiara look adorable or what? I love her hair πŸ™‚

   
 

   
 

  

This is one of my faves <3 
 

   
  
I love the lighting on this one πŸ™‚

  
And this is probably my absolute favorite!! I just love the closeup on my camera πŸ˜€

Well, I gotta go now! My Grandpa (AKA Papa) is here for my birthday as well πŸ™‚

Donuts or cake?

~Jaclynn~

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!! I received my 70th follower this morning!! I’ve been anxiously awaiting the day I would reach 70 followers on this blog, and I’m SO excited and oh, SO thankful for every one of you!

“I’m Going On An Adventure!”~ A Photoshoot of Leia

Hi guys! Or should I say girls? That always feels weird for me to say “Hi guys” when I’m speaking to girls XD

Anyway, today I went outside and took some photos of Leia. My camera was dying to be used (or I was dying to use my camera) and Leia was dressed all cute, so she was the one I chose for the photoshoot! Believe me, I did try choosing a different doll to take pics of, but Leia is my newest doll and she was calling to me πŸ™‚

Okay, that’s enough talking now, let’s get on with the pictures! πŸ˜€

 

   
  
  
 

   
Doesn’t she look like she’s ready for an adventure? πŸ™‚

  
 

  


    

   

 

    

   

  
  
  
  
Well, that’s all for today! I was really happy with how these pictures turned out and my camera continues to amaze me πŸ™‚

Be sure to let me know which picture was your favorite! πŸ™‚

Do you like pretzels? XD

~Jaclynn~

P.S. One of those moments when I can’t think of a question to ask and have to go with something random. XD
