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 :)

  
 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 :)

  
  
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? :)

  
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?

“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 :)

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? :)

  
 

  


    

   

 

    

   

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

Be sure to let me know which picture was your favorite! :)

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

Review of Lea’s Bahia Outfit & Photoshoot!

Hi everyone! The rain stopped so I was able to go outside and take some pictures today – YAY! πŸ˜€

  
I had a request to do a review of Lea’s Bahia Outfit, so here it is!

When I first saw the leaked photos of this outfit, I thought it was weird and just blah. But when I saw a picture of Lea wearing it, well, I pretty much died and I knew I had to take it home with me on the 1st. The colors of the shirt look absolutely amazing up against her skin and hair color! This is probably my favorite outfit from her collection :)

  
And also, when I saw the picture of Lea wearing this outfit, I knew I had to get her ears pierced so I could put those dangles on her when she wore this outfit! They look amazing with this outfit and I kind of feel like it’s a must for her to wear these with this outfit XD

  
The pattern of the shirt is so interesting and I love how it starts off yellow at the neck and then turns to pink! πŸ˜€

  
The sandals are really adorable and easy to get on. They Velcro in the back and you slip the foot through the loop. Piece of cake! :)

  
The shorts are the only thing I don’t like about this outfit. I’ve never really cared for the look of wearing a long sleeve with shorts and plus, these shorts are REALLY short. I wish AG would have made them a bit longer :/ 

  
So, I rate this outfit a 9 out of 10. I’m taking away one point because of the shorts. If they were longer, I probably would have given this outfit a 10 πŸ˜‰

And now, let us move on to the photoshoot!

  
  
  
I’m trying to decide if I want Leia to be a sister to the rest of my dolls or maybe start making my newer dolls be friends instead… What do you think? 

  

  
  
  
  
This is probably one of my favorite photos :)

  
  
  
  
I also really like this picture! I think it looks so cool with her strands of hair flying in the wind πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

Well, that’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed this photoshoot and review :)

What’s your favorite outfit from Lea’s collection?

A Comparison of Lea and Rebecca

Hi everyone! I’m so excited because it’s raining right now and it’s cold! I was just lying on the couch with a blanket and reading Lea Dives In – so far, it’s really good! It makes me kind of sad, though because of Lea and Zac’s relationship… Okay, let’s get back on track!

Today I thought I’d do a comparison of Lea and Rebecca. I didn’t realize how many similarities they had until I took them outside for some pictures. They would make some really great twins or even just sisters πŸ˜‰

  
Aren’t they just adorable? So the first thing that’s the same about them, is that they both have the Josefina face mold. In my opinion, Lea’s face looks slightly chubbier and her lips also look bigger, but we’ll get into that later πŸ˜‰

  

Here is Rebecca’s eye. She has a beautiful bright green hazel color with grey-ish brown and black stripes. Her eyebrows are basic.

  

This is Lea’s eye. They are a darker green than Rebecca’s and have lots more brown in them and she also has the black stripes. Lea also has a thick ring of black around her eye. Her eyebrows are thicker, similar to Grace’s and arched, which is new. 

  
Here are Lea’s lips. They are painted mauve.

  
And these are Rebecca’s lips. They’re like a light peach almost. I think due to the darkness of Lea’s lips, it makes them look bigger than Rebecca’s because they stand out.

  
Here you can also see the difference in the skin color. Lea’s skin is tan and Rebecca’s is white. 

  
Side view. Here, Lea’s skin looks similar to Kanani’s. I’ll have to compare their skin soon πŸ˜‰

  
And finally, their hair! I had no idea that their hair color was so alike, and now I can definitely tell that Lea’s hair is brown. Lea’s hair goes down to her hips and is curly/wavy with light blonde and auburn highlights. Rebecca’s hair goes a little past her shoulders and is curly.

Even though they share the same color brown in their hair, I still have to say that Lea’s is slightly lighter than Rebecca’s which I believe is because of her light highlights. 

So here’s a list telling how they are alike:

1. They both have brown hair, with Lea’s slightly lighter.

2. They both share the Josefina face mold.

3. They both have green hazel eyes, with Rebecca’s being much brighter.

As I stated earlier, I really think that Lea and Rebecca would make great sisters. Even though not everything is the same, they share many similarities :)

What are your thoughts on Lea and Rebecca? Do you think they look alike?

Leia~ A Photoshoot

Happy New Year, everyone!!

As some of you may know, I went to Lea Clark’s debut today with Emma and we both had so much fun! Weeelll… As I’m sure you can tell by the title – I GOT LEA!!! But, I’m spelling it “Leia” because, well, okay, because it’s Star Wars-y πŸ˜€

I only have a little bit of time right now, so I can’t do a photostory or review with her just yet, but be on the watch for it! :) Now, here is Leia!


*drools just a little bit* She is such a GORGEOUS doll!!! I can’t handle this!! She’s AMAZING!!! *dies*



I tried getting a clear picture of her eye color for you. I think in person it is slightly more green than in the picture πŸ˜‰ Also, here you can see the shape of her eyebrows. I’m pretty sure that they’re new as they appear to be more arched.


*sniffs* Leia is next to me right now and seriously, all I smell is her :O She smells so new!!


Here is a full body shot! Isn’t she adorable?! If you’re wondering about the messenger bag and compass necklace, yes, they are included with the doll and book for $120 :) But, ahem, they are in a terrible spot. We were like- I thought she came with the bag and necklace! I’m so disappointed! And so my mom looked it up on the site (we were already in the car) and it said that it’s supposed to be included. So just as Emma’s mom was about to call AG to ask about it, my mom is like “Are you sure it’s not anywhere? Is it behind the book?” And Emma and I were like- “No, it is not behind the book.” So then Emma picked up the part the book is in and saw in back of that package, that the bag and necklace were right there… Hehe…. XD



The necklace is seriously adorable!! And the arrow actually moves!! AAH!!


And the bag- OMGEE! I believe this and the compass will be used a LOT! πŸ˜€



Β 

Β Β 

Isn’t this such amazing hair?! :O


She has beautiful highlights! Light blonde and red! AGH! I think her hair color is like a caramel-y brown… It’s hard for me to tell πŸ˜‰


Β 
I love her eyes next to this plant!

Β 
Isn’t she beautiful?! I’m so glad that I was able to purchase her as well as have her ears pierced! You’ll have to see the other thing I got soon πŸ˜‰

What are your thoughts on Lea Clark?

Bonus pic!


It’s pretty much the same as the previous one, except the lighting is different :)

Finally Some Bokeh~ A Photoshoot

Hi everyone! Today I’m going to share with you the photoshoot I did on Christmas with my new camera! YAY! πŸ˜€

Oh, also, sorry the title seems so wacko. I was completely clueless on what to name this post XD

  

You may notice that Riven-Delle is wearing Grace’s Sightseeing Outfit! Well, my mom had bought it for me for Christmas, but then she realized she had spent too much money on me (with the camera πŸ˜‰ ) and so I bought it from her! :)

  
My camera really captures the natural colors so well! It amazes me!

  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
B-b-bokeh…? :O

  
  
  
  
  
  
I am so happy with how these pictures turned out! I can’t wait to take more pictures with my camera! πŸ˜€

Can you see a difference in my pictures?

GOTY Swap~ A Photoshoot

So the other day when I posted the photoshoot of Julie, I asked for suggestions of who I should take a photoshoot of. Julia suggested Jess and Peace suggested Kanani, and also using Lizzy’s suggestion for using more than one doll in a photoshoot again, I bring to you GOTY Swap! πŸ˜€

I always loved shots like these. I think they’re just so cute! :) And do you see now why I called this photoshoot GOTY Swap? πŸ˜‰


I think they look so adorable in each other’s meet outfits!! Kanani in Orange, Jess in blue- agh! πŸ˜€

Kanani is so beautiful! <3






Jess is so adorable!!!


I didn’t realize I took so many of Jess… Oopsie! πŸ˜‰

Β 
Aren’t they adorable?! πŸ˜€

I hope you liked the photoshoot! :)

Masquerade~ Part 1

image
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.

image

As I was listening to the young ladies chat away, I had a strange feeling inside. Something wasn’t right.

image

I looked behind me and saw a young man watching the men and women dance away to the music.

image

Wait a second. I knew that face.

image

My heart was racing and I found it hard for me to breathe. “Calm. Stay calm.” I told myself.

image

“Please excuse me, ladies.” I said politely with a quick curtsy.


image

As I hurried toward the exit, someone tapped my shoulder.

image

“May I have this dance?” That horrid man inquired with a bow.

image

Knowing how improper it would be for me to refuse, I reluctantly said, “You may.”

image

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.

image

“You know why I’m here, Liesel.” He whispered with a threatening tone.

image

“On the contrary, Frederic, I have no idea why you’re here.” I stated, still not even making eye contact.

image

“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.”

image

“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.

image

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!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Paper Cut (and Day 21)

Hey guys! Today I got around to making a photostory and then I cleaned my room, so I feel really good right now! Plus, I’m listening to the Tangled soundtrack, so that’s always awesome! πŸ˜€

Now, let’s get on with the photostory!

image

“Samantha? Do you have to do that right now?” Riven-Delle asked her sister who was busy cleaning out the closet.

image

Without looking up from her work she replied, “Yes! If I don’t do it no one else will and it needs to be done!”

image

With a sigh and a shake of her head, Riven-Delle leaned back in her chair and tried to concentrate on what to write in her writing journal.

image

Clara entered the room and spotted Samantha cleaning out the closet. “Um, Samantha? Didn’t you just clean out the closet yesterday?” Clara inquired.

image

“Yes, but it has to be done again because no one ever puts things away properly!” Samantha stated in frustration. Clara knew very well that the purses at least hadn’t been touched at all since she cleaned the closet last, but she didn’t press the matter for she knew that Samantha loved to clean more than anyone.

image

“Are you okay, Riven-Delle? You look tired.” Clara observed.

image

“Oh, no, I’m just having trouble concentrating.” Riven-Delle replied with a slight grin.

image

“Oh, I see. Well I’m just getting some paper, but I’ll do my best not to distract you.” Clara said with a smile.

image

As Clara grabbed a sheet of paper, it slipped and lightly scraped her finger.

image

“Ow!” Clara yelped and then let out a quiet hiss. “What happened?” Samantha asked as she instantly turned her head at Clara’s cry of pain.

image

“Oh, it’s nothing. Just a paper cut.” Clara reassured her sister.

image

As Clara picked the paper off of the floor, she looked at her finger and saw that it was bleeding.

image

Clara instantly closed her eyes and turned away while taking deep breaths. “Clara, what’s wrong?” Riven-Delle inquired as she jumped out of her chair.

image

“I’m feeling faint.” Clara said softly.

image

Riven-Delle and Samantha rushed to their sister and helped her to the chair.

image

“Alright, put your head down. You’ll be okay.” Riven-Delle comforted as Clara did as she was told.

image

“What made you get all faint so suddenly?” Samantha asked.

image

“I looked at my finger and saw that it was bleeding.” Clara explained.

image

Clara sat up once she was feeling better and said, “You know, Riven-Delle-

image

-I hate paper cuts.”

THE END

So yeah, this photostory was inspired by the paper cut I got yesterday. When I saw my fingerΒ was bleeding I had to instantly look away cause I felt close to faintness. I wasn’t nearly as bad as Clara, but since she faints a lot, I thought it could work with her LOL!

Now, for Day 21 – Favorite recipe:

Hmm…. This is hard. I guess I’ll just go with the Funfetti Cookie recipe! They’re SO good and my brother, Jordan LOVES them!Β I can’t wait to make them this winter! πŸ˜€

Do you ever get faint when you see blood?Β
