Review of Truly Me #44
Hey everyone! I recently had a request from Daisymermaid to do a review of Kiara (TM#44), so that’s what I’m doing today, as you can already tell by the title XD
First, let’s talk about her hair. It’s amazing, really it is, but it lays pretty awkwardly and is rather frizzy. This is picture of how it looks just doing its thing.
And here’s how I normally have it. Those few front curls are always in her face and have weird frizzies that get in her eye, so I usually just tuck them back 🙂
The curls are beautiful! They can be a challenge to tame, but in the end it’s worth it. What I usually do to tame the frizzies and get it looking nicer, is I grab a squirt bottle and squirt a bit of water onto my fingers. I rub them together and then grab a curl and just sort of wipe it down and then twist it. I do this to every single curl. It takes a while 😉
She has about 4-5 layers of curls – this gives it it’s bigness ;D
The very bottom layer of curls is really weird. They’re super short and just kind of crazy. Thankfully you can’t see them cause they’re hidden by all the other curls 🙂
Her hair is dark brown with golden-red highlights that can only be seen when she’s in direct light. It’s so pretty 🙂
Kiara has the classic face mold, feathered eyebrows, and hazel eyes.
She has a medium skin tone. Here is her skin color (left) compared to Grace’s (right).
Kiara (left), Lea (right). Their skin color is very close. I’m having trouble being able to tell whether it’s the same or not… I want to say that Lea’s skin is the slightest bit lighter, but they probably have the same color skin 🙂
And here’s Kiara (left) next to Kanani (right). Again, super close, but Kanani’s is definitely darker.
Kiara (#44) is a gorgeous doll and I’m so happy to have her as part of my doll family! I’d probably rate her a 9 out of 10 just because her hair is kinda crazy XD Also, just an FYI, Kiara is the JLY version, so I’m not sure if the TM version has any slight changes or not 😉
Do you have #44? What are your thoughts on her?
Aah! She’s SO adorable! Jaclynn, I think every time I see one of your posts, I just die from adorableness!!!
LOLOL! She is super adorable! 😀
Awe, YAY! Thanks so much! 🙂
You are really good at reviews! This doll is gorgeous and looks like she is full of character. I do not have her or a doll similar to her.
Awe, thanks so much, Rebekah! 🙂
She totally is! She definitely has a lot of personality 🙂
She’s really pretty doll, but yeah, my Bella has a curl that always falls in her face.
Yeah, she is beautiful, but her hair can be annoying at times 😛
Kiara is so cute! I love her eyes. I love the name you picked for her!
Yes, she’s adorable! Thanks so much 🙂
Eee! That doll looks EXACTLY LIKE ME! The hair, the eyes, the skin color, EVERYTHING! I WANT THAT DOLL!
Oh, that is SO cool!! You should totally get her, Anika! 😀
She’s gorgeous! Wonderful review!
For the collab blog, I went ahead and tried out a few themes…I like Penscratch a lot. Here’s a link to to the blog – https://theelvenrealmofwriting.wordpress.com/
I’m not too sure how I like the theme, but I’ll see what I can do. What do you think? Anything I should add or take away? I’d love some feedback! 🙂
Oh, and could you comment on my blog your email address. I need it to invite you as an author to the blog. I moderate my comments, and I promise I won’t publish/moderate it – once I see it I’ll send the invite and delete the comment.

Thanks so much! 🙂
I just checked it out – I really like the layout of everything, but it seems a tad plain (probably cause there’s so much white). But I think that once we’ve got a banner made, it’ll bring it all together and be great! 😀 What do you think? 🙂 (Hope I didn’t sound mean at all!)
Oh, sure! I’ll get to that right away! 🙂
This is SO exciting!! 😀
Yes, I totally agree. It definitely needs a little sprucing up. I’ll try to find a good background too. 🙂
I sent you an invite to the blog! 😀
YAY! I’ll get it right now! 😀
I have a question – I can’t edit pages (I was going to start work on my about page), so how will I go about doing that exactly? 🙂
My mom was wondering what size the banner needs to be? If you go into the header editing thingy (super amazing description, right? XD ) you can see what size they recommend for that 🙂
So sorry I didn’t see your comments!
For your About page: I’ll either make you an admin and you can get it written or just comment it with how you want it to look (if anything will be bold or centered or have bullets/dashes) and I’ll add it.
Which do you prefer?
For the header: WordPress recommends the size being 937 x 300 pixels.
Thanks again to you and your mom!
Hmm… What if I type it all up into a post, save it as a draft, and then you can copy and paste it into the page? 🙂
Okay, thanks so much! I’ll let my mom know and she’ll get to work on it as soon as she can! 🙂
OK, sounds great! So should I make you an admin then?
You don’t have to, but if you’d like to, that’s fine 😉
Oh, I’m so dumb, haha! I forgot you can post on the blog too! LOL!
LOL! Well I sure hope I can! Otherwise it wouldn’t be much of a collab blog! XD
Haha, I know! 😀 😛
Anyway, yes, that sounds great! Just, as you said, write up your About page in a post and I’ll copy and paste it to your page!
LOL! Okay, I’ll try doing that tomorrow morning! 🙂
Awesome! There’s no rush, but the sooner the better!
Thanks again Jaclynn! I’m just sooo excited for this!
I did it! 🙂
You’re welcome! I’m super excited about it, too! 😀
Oh, and I gave my mom the info for the banner, so hopefully she’ll start on it soon! YAY! 😀
Thank you for doing a review on her! And thanks Daisymermaid for requesting it! I’ve been deciphering whether to not to ask for #44 for my birthday, and this will help me a lot. Thank you! And Kiara is beautiful. 🙂
You’re welcome! I’m so glad this was helpful for you! 🙂
Kiara is gorgeous! I think you’d really love her 😉
I love her hair! What a beautiful doll!
Me too! 🙂
Thanks, Jaclynn! ?
You’re welcome! I hope this was helpful to you! 🙂
It was! ?
I do have #44! I named her Abilieen and I totally get the crazy hair thing. It can be so hard to tame! I still LOVE #44 though, she’s such a great doll!
I know, right? It’s insane at times. XD
I totally agree! She’s beautiful 🙂
Okay, I just HAD to show you this:
AWWWWWW!!!!! That is SO cute!! Thanks for showing me, Clara! 😀
I KNOW, right?
Actually, Ms.AGdoll found it and said “You have got to show Jaclynn this!” 😛
Awe, that was so sweet of her! 🙂
