BeForever RELEASE!!!

Okay, girls. I have been counting down how much longer until the release ALL DAY!! And around 9:40 my mom said that she read the release was online (but really it wouldn’t be online around 10:00 PM our time), so I RUSHED to the computer and went onto the AG site (I was literally shaking- I was so excited!), and then I counted down the minutes until 10:00- then it was time! I clicked refresh and VOILA! Let’s just say these lyrics “A whole new world! A dazzling place I never knew!” would’ve matched PERFECTLY in the background of me looking at all the new stuff!!!! πŸ˜€
Now, after dying for an hour (no joke) I am FINALLY ready to share my thoughts over everything with you!!!

beforever_samantha

WELCOME BACK SAMANTHA!!! I know, a lot of people don’t like the pink and they think it doesn’t “match” her, but I LOOOVE her new Meet Outfit!! It is SO beautiful and she looks great in it!! πŸ˜€ ALSO- it is true- you can buy the Meet Outfits separately for $36.00 AND AG has raised the price of Doll and Book to $115.00- ugh πŸ˜•

frilly_frock

Samantha’s Frilly Frock is $36 and oh, so cute!! I love that it’s satin and I’m also loving the color combo of pink and purple- my two favorite colors! I also like that they used lavender, since that’s Samantha’s favorite color :)

samantha_bicycle

Samantha’s Bicycling Outfit is $34. It’s cute, but I don’t think it’s all that great. πŸ˜‰

samantha_nightgown

Samantha’s Nightgown is $24 and very cute! I love those little slippers!

samantha_holiday

Samantha’s Holiday Set is $64 and can I just say that I LOVE it?! I need money!! πŸ˜›

samantha_coat

Samantha’s Fancy Coat Set is $34 and SO PRETTY!!! I love the black and white and the animal print!!! πŸ˜€

samantha_hair

Samantha’s Hairstyling Set is $22. It’s a very cute set! I love the hat and the little hairbrush! It’s so cute and chubby! LOL πŸ˜›

jip

Samantha’s Dog, Jip is $22. I like the fluffiness of him, but his face isn’t very cute… πŸ˜•

samantha_bedtime

Samantha’s Bedtime Accessories is $44- That bear looks an awful like Bitty Bear…. Ugh, AG….
This set isn’t that great in my opinion, but the music box is cool! I like that it really works! :)

samantha_bike

Samantha’s Bicycle is $115 and I LOVE it!! I love the colors and just everything about it!! SO cute! πŸ˜€

samantha_bed

Samantha’s Bed & Bedding is $150 and so GORGEOUS!! πŸ˜€

ice_cream_parlor

Samantha’s Ice Cream Parlor is $300 and I NEED IT!! It’s SO ADORABLE!! I LOVE the cash register!! I’m dying over this set!!! This is probably my favorite of the entire release!!! πŸ˜€

beforever_addy

Addy Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. Addy’s new outfit is SO pretty! I love the dark blue on her! And that little patchwork bag is adorable!!

addy_school

Addy’s School Outfit is $34. At first I wasn’t sure what I thought about this, but I think it’s really cute!! πŸ˜€

addy_lunch

Addy’s Lunch Pail is $28. I love that it even has the “love” cookies!!! That’s so adorable!!! πŸ˜€

beforever_caroline

Caroline Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I think it’s kinda sad that her outfit didn’t change much πŸ˜•

caroline_party

Caroline’s Party Gown is $36 and SO pretty!! Again, I’m loving the satin!

caroline_table_treats

Caroline’s Table & Treats is $150 and reminds me quite a bit of the one from Marie-Grace and Cecile’s Collection…. But- it’s still cute! πŸ˜›

beforever_josefina

Josefina Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I really don’t like the blue added into her outfit. And I’m also so sad that she didn’t get anything else new. I feel so bad for her :(

beforever_julie

Julie Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I do not like her new meet outfit at all. The original one was way better! And honestly- those sunglasses make her look weird- in my opinion away πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›

julie_tunic

Julie’s Tunic Outfit is $34. The only thing that caught my eye were those heels!! I’ve never seen heels that big for AG dolls before!!

julie_winter_coat

Julie’s Winter Coat & Hat is $34 and I am DYING over this!!!! I really think my dolls need that coat!! πŸ˜€

julie_holiday

Julie’s Holiday Outfit is $34. I wasn’t very impressed with this outfit… It just didn’t really appeal to me very much πŸ˜‰

julie_snack

Julie’s Snack Set is $50. I LOVE all of those snacks!! SO CUTE!! πŸ˜€

julie_egg_chair

Julie’s Egg Chair Set is $100 and I think it’s adorable!!! And that’s so cool that you can really play music through it!!!

beforever_kaya

Kaya Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. Same with Caroline- I think it’s sad that her outfit didn’t really change :(

kaya_hair

Pow-Wow Hair Set of Today is $18. I’m not too interested in this πŸ˜›

beforever_kit

Kit Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I think her dress cute and it’s definitely better than her original Meet Outfit in my opinion! The main thing I like is the hat πŸ˜›

kit_reporter

Kit’s Reporter Dress is $38 and I think it’s pretty cute! :)

kit_photographer

Kit’s Photographer Outfit is $34. I am really in love with that sweater, but I definitely wouldn’t buy the outfit πŸ˜‰

kit_typewriter

Kit’s Typewriter Set is $50 and can I just say- YAYAY!!! I’ve missed her old typewriter for such a long time and I’m SO happy that she has one again!!! I’m probably gonna have to buy this someday. I love typewriters!! πŸ˜€

beforever_rebecca

Rebecca Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134 and I’m DYING over her new outfit!!! And OMGOSH that HAT!! I need to buy this someday!! πŸ˜€

rebecca_holiday

Rebecca’s Holiday Outfit is $34 and again I am DYING!!! That is such a BEAUTIFUL dress!!! πŸ˜€

rebecca_food

Rebecca’s Teatime Traditions is $68. It’s cute, but that is just way too much money πŸ˜›

rebecca_director

Rebecca’s Director Set is $75. I LOVE IT!!! That chair is ADORABLE!! And the Megaphone!!

Now, let’s take a look at the Mini Dolls:

samantha_mini

addy_mini

caroline_mini

julie_mini

kaya_mini

kit_mini

rebecca_mini

The Mini Dolls are $25 and come with a book. I can’t BELIEVE I am about to say this, and it is the first time I’ve ever said it about AG, but I honestly think they look so cheapy. They remind me of the little Isabelle dolls they had in Happy Meals at McDonalds! And I still don’t think their faces cute. I think they’re slightly cuter than the old ones, but if I’m going by quality, I have to say that the old ones were better. πŸ˜•

Also, there were a few new books released!

doll_art_kit

Doll Art Studio is $24.95 and it looks so adorable!! I think this kit is officially on my wants list πŸ˜›

awesome_random

I also noticed this which is $9.99

bits_glitz

And this which is $24.99. :)

So that’s all for the whole new release!! I’ll have to give this release a 9 out of 10 due to some things I didn’t like, such as outfits not being changed, cheapy mini dolls, etc.
However I LOVED this release and I hope you did, too! Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to hear from you! πŸ˜€

Getting Excited For BeForever!!!

I have been very uncertain on how I feel towards the new BeForever line. But lately I have been dying for it to get here already!!!

image

We got an email from American Girl yesterday and it had this picture!! Okay, I just HAVE to buy Samantha’s and Rebecca’s new Meet Outfits!!! They’re SO pretty!!! But I also have to say that I’m SO sad and disappointed that Caroline and Kaya don’t have new outfits. Like that just looks so wrong- if you know what I mean πŸ˜›

And now for some exciting news!!! My mom and I are going to the AG store in LA for the BeForever Debut on Thursday!!!! I’m SOOOO EXCITED!!! I’ll be taking TONS of pictures, so you can look forward to that! πŸ˜€

How are you feeling about BeForever? Are you planning to go to the store for the Debut?

My American Girl Birthday Shopping Spree!

Hi girls! I had such a fun time yesterday at the AG place and spending time with my family! My mom and I left to go to the AG Place at 10:00 AM and got there at about 11:10 AM. We took our time and covered every inch of the place. It was so much fun!! So, let’s begin looking through the pictures!

image

Online, Isabelle’s Bar & Beam looks kinda big, but it’s actually pretty small! Which I guess it has to be, LOL! πŸ˜›

image

Isabelle’s Pajamas and her cat. I think Isabelle is so much cuter in person!

image

I love this outfit!! Pictures don’t it justice!

image

LOOVE THIS SET!! Why is it $64??? UGH! πŸ˜• πŸ˜›

image

Pretty Isabelle :)

image

That tutu is cute!

image

Pretty birthday display :) (I love the doll on the right!)

image

Look! It’s Annika!! She looks so pretty!! πŸ˜€

image

Okay, can I just say ADORBS?!?!

image

I LOVE this doll and outfit!!! πŸ˜€

image

This is just such an amazing display!! Can you see all the tiny Easter eggs??

image

SO CUTE!!!

image

I can NOT tell you how I excited (and shocked) I was to see the Western Riding Outfit there!! It’s not online anymore, but it was in the store!! YAY! πŸ˜€

image

Just look at how cute that is! :)

image

I love Isabelle’s Coral Sweater :)

image

That is such an adorable hairstyle! I should’ve studied it more πŸ˜•

image

Those two look like they’re having a lot fun :)

image

A cute classroom display :)

image

The other side has the Gala Party Scene! I need to get that someday πŸ˜‰

image

I love Isabelle’s Studio! It is so cute! I was a bit disappointed when I saw that the dress form was solid and not squishy…

image

Julie’s Car is amazing! I think that the doors should open, though πŸ˜›

image

So pretty!! My mom said she’s gonna buy Julie, but I said, “No, you can’t! I’m gonna buy her someday!” LOL! πŸ˜›

image

I think this outfit is really cute!!

image

And so is this one!! I don’t like the headband, but everything else is adorable :)

image

Oh, gosh! This is also so much cuter in person!

image

I don’t really care for the colors of this outfit, but the detail is absolutely amazing!

image

I love Caroline :) (and I need that dress! πŸ˜› )

image

Her hair looks so pretty!!!

image

This outfit is just beautiful!

image

Another ADORABLE Bitty picture! πŸ˜€

image

This set up is really cute!

image

I LOVE this set!!! I was dying over everything about it! It’s adorable!

image

I really love this doll! She is so cute :)

image

The new Rainy Day Outfit is so cute! I just really want that coat, but I do not want to pay $24 for it πŸ˜›

image

Here’s me standing in front of Kaya’s section :)

image

Kaya’s Deerskin Outfit. It is actually cuter in person, too. I have just never paid much attention to her which, yes, it’s pretty sad :(

image

I LOVE her horses and her saddle!!

image

Kaya is so pretty! πŸ˜€

image

Kaya’s Pow Wow Dress of today. She looks so pretty in blue! I also love her tepee :)

image

Trying to find which doll looks perfect! Yep! I bought Kaya!!! πŸ˜€

image

After looking through practically EVERY Kaya doll (No joke!) I finally found the perfect one πŸ˜€

image

I had put too much in my bag, so I had to take some things out. Here’s me trying to decide which outfit to get over the other!

image

I was trying to decide between the Western Riding Outfit and the Weekend Fun Outfit! It was SO hard to decide!! I had planned to buy the Weekend Fun, but when I saw the Western Riding, I wanted to buy that because I was so sad when it wasn’t available anymore! It was a super hard choice to make, but I finally went with the Western Riding Outfit :)

image

Finally, I was ready to check out πŸ˜€

I’m going to give you a list of what I bought as I haven’t taken pictures of everything yet. πŸ˜‰

1. Kaya Doll and Book
2. Steps High- I had to order her because she was back ordered, but at least I got free shipping :)
3. Sparks Flying
4. Frosty Fair Isle Outfit
5. Western Riding Outfit
6. Purple Peacock PJ’s for Kaya πŸ˜‰

And my mom and dad also gave me two AG outfits!!
1. The Cozy Sweater Outfit (SOOO EXCITED!!)
2. Saige’s Sweater Outfit (YAY!!)

I’m SO happy with all of my stuff! And here are a couple more pictures of me and Kaya:

image

I opened her in the car and just about died! She is absolutely beautiful and her hair is AMAZINGLY soft! No other doll has hair as soft as hers!

image

I love her so much!!! πŸ˜€

image

When we pulled into our driveway I put Kaya back in her box, but I decided to be silly and become an American Girl Doll myself! LOL! πŸ˜›

Okay, now you all have to see this beautiful cookie cake that my mom made me!!

image

Look how pretty it is!!! I did not know my mom was so good at cake decorating!! Thank you for making me such a pretty cake, mommy :)

I had such a great birthday!! My mom made french toast, hash browns, and sausage for dinner (my FAVORITE breakfast!), then we sat around a bit, played Apples to Apples, and hung out some more! It was SO much fun!
And I want to thank you ALL for the birthday wishes! You’re so amazing and I’m so lucky to have friends like you! :)

Look for another post coming later today! πŸ˜€
