New GOTY Luciana Vega

When I saw Luciana Vega for the first time what I thought was….

WOAHHHHHH

She’s. So. Cool.

I love so many things about her! Something I absolutely love about her is that she’s a PoC! Yay! AND she’s into STEM. Like, Luciana is pretty much my dream GOTY.

*Please note that all the prices listed on this blog are in Canadian dollars*

And here she is:

LuciBlogStuffz

Luciana Doll, Book, And Accessories

$142.73

Her accessories (The backpack, star chart, smart watch, space ice cream, space camp log book, and space camp graduation certificate) are really cool! I especially love the backpack. And the space ice cream is super cool!

Luciana herself is so pretty! I love her side bangs and her purple streak!

Her outfit: I LOVE the boots. They’re so cool! I actually really like the galaxy print on her dress. I kinda wish it wasn’t a dress, but oh well. What are ya gonna do? her belt is kinda meh for me. Her necklaces are pretty. I love how one of them matches her boots!

LuciKay

Luciana’s Maker Station

$124.12

This is cool, but honestly, it seems pretty pricey to me. I like how Luci has some Lego! Oh, wait it’s…MEGA CONSTRUX. Okay, not Lego. I don’t have a lot to say about this set.

LuciStuffz

Luciana’s Mars Habitat

$434.41

OOOOOOOHHHHHH WOOOOOOW. Reeeeeallly expensive, but SOOOO COOL. I mean, LOOK AT IT. Sorry for all the caps. It’s really cool.  Luciana’s big ticket item is, in my opinion, the best AG big ticket item I’ve ever seen. I love this set.

Lucicluciluciluci

Luciana’s Robotic Dog

This is adorable! Love how the bone is a wrench! I wish it wasn’t pink (I’m just not a pink person) but overall it’s super cute.

Luciana’s Flight Suit

$34.75

This is so adorable! I love how realistic it is. It looks great on Luci! I just love it!

LuciJacket

Luciana’s Stellar Outfit

This is probably my least favourite thing in her collection. It’s okay. Meh.

Lucipjs

Luciana’s PJ’s

I love these so much! They’re really soooo cute! And I know this isn’t really related, but her buns in this photo are so adorable!

Lucisocooooool

Luciana’s Space Suit

This is only for AG Rewards members, but woaaaaaah. This is amazing! So realistic. I’m kind of dying just looking at it and wanting it. This is so cool.

Can You Believe It’s Almost Christmas? (December Recap)

Hello, lovely people! And is that a long title or what? 😀 I’m so excited…because Christmas is in 3 DAYS! December has gone by so fast, I can’t believe it! In today’s post, I’ll be talking about what I did in December!

  • I had my Christmas Choir Concert! I think it went really well, and it was a lot of fun!
  • I hosted a Christmas Party with some of my friends! It was so much fun!
  • We went sledding with my brother’s friends!
  • We haven’t seen the new Star Wars movie yet (This isn’t really part of the recap, I just REALLY WANNA SEE IT!)
  • It snowed….a lot. And still is.

I’m sorry this post is so little! 😦 Oh well!

I CAN’T WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS.

Happy Holidays!

The Christmas Tag

Hello, lovelies!

img_8766-2 (1)

 

Loren posted on her awesome blog something called The Christmas Tag! I thought it looked like fun, so I decided to do it…and, well, here we are! By the way, you should check out her blog HERE!

First of all, here are the rules for this tag!

– thank the person that nominated you with a link to their blog
– add the picture in your blog (the red one above)
– copy these rules into your post
– add a link to the original post (littlediyprojects.wordpress.com/thechristmastag)
– answer the ten questions (you can add extra Christmas-related questions if you want)
– tag at least three other bloggers with links to their blogs
– have fun!

Now for the fun part, the questions!

1) what’s your favourite thing about Christmas?

Ummm, EVERYTHING? Just kidding! I do love just about everything about Christmas, but if I had to pick a favourite it would probably just be spending time with my family.

2) what’s your favourite Christmas memory?

Well, I’ve got lots, but seeing as I’ve got to pick one, I’ll go with when I opened my giant BB-8 plush. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!

3) are there special traditions your family has for Christmas?

We open our gifts at home and then go to my grandma’s house and she makes a ton of food! Also, our cats destroy the tree, which isn’t really an official tradition, but it happens every year so I’m including it. XD

4) what’s your Christmas wish? (can be personal or general)

This one is sort of tough for some reason! I just hope to have a fun time with my family. 😀

5) what’s your favourite Christmas dish?

As I mentioned above, my grandma cooks a ton, and my favourite out of all the delicious stuff she makes would probably have to be the mashed potatoes. Mmmm.

6) what’s your favourite Christmas decoration?

I have lots, but one of them would be the adorable hedgehog that Kaitlyn from Kaits AG Crafts got me! I love it! Thank you, Kaitlyn! Check out her blog here!

7) what’s your favourite Christmas song?

Oh dear, this is tough! I love just about every Christmas song! I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day is a good one! We sang it in choir this year.

8) where do you usually celebrate Christmas?

Like I said, we open our gifts from our parents at home and then go to our grandparent’s house for FOOD! (and more presents). The day after we go to our other grandparent’s house. 🙂

9) what does the “Christmas spirit” mean to you?

Kindness! As well as Christmas songs playing 24/7 in my head. XD

10) who out of anybody in the world would you want to spend your Christmas with?

My family, of course!

I tag:

Laura from Lula Boo

Kaitlyn from Kaits AG Crafts

And YOU!

Have fun, and happy holidays!

Choir!

You’ve probably heard me mention that I do choir before, and if you haven’t, well then, I do choir! I love to sing and our choir director is amazing! So is our pianist! Last year I didn’t do any solos, but I did do a part in one song where I had to dance while everyone else sang! Eeek! It was fun, though, no matter how scary. Our Christmas concert is actually TODAY! AAAAH! I’m actually doing a solo this time ( A singing one! )! I’m very excited…but also terrified. Wish me luck!

Bye,

Guinea Pig Update & Doll Repainting

Hello, lovelies! Nano is now over, meaning getting back to blogging will be easier ( I hope! ). I’m also going to be setting up a blogging schedule soon! I’d like to post at least two times a week as I haven’t been so good about that lately.

Anyway, in my last post, I broke the very exciting news that we will be getting guinea pigs! Well, now we’ve gotten them! They are just so adorable. We got them from a local shelter in our area, and they had the names Cashew and Clementine which we thought were just adorable names, so we decided to keep them. As I write this post, I can hear them eating and squeaking. The squeaking noises they make really are just so cute! Clementine, my guinea pig, is sort of a gingerbread colour.

Speaking of pets, our cat Natalie is ALMOST TWENTY! That’s really old for a cat. Like, really old. She’ll be twenty on Christmas!

In other words, all our pets are doing well!

Now, you may have noticed that I have also written Doll Repainting in the title! That is because I have started to repaint doll’s faces ( No, NOT American Girl faces or anything like that. That would be a disaster. )! You may have heard of the artist Sonia Singh, who repaints dolls to look like real people! You can check her out here! I thought that was really cool, so I decided to give it a try myself. I like to draw and paint, so I thought “how hard can it be?”

Well, harder than I thought for sure. First, you have to wipe off their “factory paint” with nail polish remover, which is kind of terrifying. Then you have to actually paint on a face, and their faces are TINY. ( I use Bratz dolls to repaint: I don’t like their faces, but if you do, please don’t take offence; their faces just aren’t for me. ) I get my dolls to repaint at thrift stores ( because we all know how much I love thrift stores! )

That’s all for now!

Guinea Pigs!

Hello, lovelies! So today (well, actually yesterday) something really exciting happened! yesterday was my brother’s birthday, and he and I have both been wanting guinea pigs for a really long time. My parents said we could get guinea pigs! We’re going to get two because they like to have friends. One will be mine, and the other will be my brother’s! But I need YOUR help! My brother has decided to name his guinea pig Daisy, but what should I name mine? The names I’m considering are:

Ellie

Indigo (Indie for short)

Curry (as suggested by my brother)

Dottie

Please let me know which one you like! And if you have any suggestions, comment those too!

Sorry, there’s no poll, I’m lazy. XD

SAIGE COPELAND!
Someone in my area was selling her for $75 dollars with two outfits and her book! I asked my mom to message the woman selling her, and we got her!

YAY!

I’ve wanted Saige for a very long time! Many of you have her, and I just love her hair! (Well, I love everything about her, actually!)

So welcome Saige! I’ll try to post pictures soon, but it’s been hard to work out pictures lately. 😦

She came with two outfits like I said before. One of them is this one:

4f2cf9d7d7ce7370cf20ffe5dbdc964c--new-american-girl-doll-sparkle-dresses

And I’m not quite sure what the other one is.

Saige is in really good condition! I need to fix up her hair a bit, ( Any tips? Help! ) but other than that she’s in awesome condition!

Bye for now!
