AG New Release Thoughts!

OK. First, let me start off this post by apologizing. We’ve been busy lately, but not too busy, and I should’ve been blogging more. It’s been forever! Happy summer! I can’t believe how long I’ve been gone. Once again, I’m really sorry. I have more posts in the works!

And, also before we start the post, HUGE thanks to Megan for helping me redesign my blog! She was amazing and if you want to redesign your blog I would totally recommend her. She just did such a great job. I love my new blog design! Thanks, Megan! ( And also thanks to Clara for recommending Megan! )

And one more thing before we start! I downloaded these pictures from other people’s blogs. This was a while ago, so I don’t remember which blogs. Sorry about that! I would give credit, but I don’t know where these are from, and like I said, they are from multiple other blogs. Just wanted to say that.

Now let’s get started!

AG’s new release…I have mixed thoughts. I’m still super relieved about the whole no more permapanties thing ( see my post about that here. ), but on the other hand, I dislike many of the new things they released. What do you think?

The new dolls! What cuties! From left to right I’ll call them Kelsie, Harley, and June.

Kelsie: LOVE her hair! Someday I might have to own her!

Harley: AAAH! She’s super cute too! To be honest, I would be afraid to touch her hair, but I love her!

June: June is probably my least favourite. She’s cute though!

And as for the new outfit, I love everything except for the shoes. The dress and the sweater are adorable!

So cute! They are now offering the dolls with no hair as TM dolls, so you now don’t have to special order them!

unnamed (1)

I don’t know why, but I really dislike this hat. It’s just not for me.

unnamed (3)

LOVE this! Too cute. The sweater is adorable!

unnamed (4)

Argh, this photo is tiny! Sorry! I love this set! It’s expensive but adorable.

unnamed (5)

This is cute, but I only really like Coconut. And it’s $50, which seems pretty high to me.

unnamed (6)

This reminds me of Grace’s suitcase! It’s okay. Not my favourite, but I can see other people liking it.

unnamed (8)

I adore this outfit! PURPLE!
unnamed (9)

This is probably one of my favourites from this release. It’s so realistic and CUTE!

unnamed (10)

Nope. I don’t like this one. The camera is cute, but nothing else really appeals to me, and the banana seems a little random.

unnamed (12)

Love this dress!

unnamed (13)

NO! I just dislike everything in this outfit, ESPECIALLY together.

unnamed (14)

Once again, I’m not a fan of this outfit.

unnamed (15)

CUTE! I love this skirt!

unnamed (16)

I don’t get the whole tights and shorts thing! And I don’t like the top either.

unnamed (17)

Cute! I love the turquoise ones.

unnamed (18)

 

I LOVE these. Not cutesy, but very sophisticated, and the colours are gorgeous!

unnamed (19)

I’m just kind of meh about this outfit. I’m not really a sports girl, but I am glad it’s not pink!

unnamed (20)

Cute, but I wouldn’t spend my money on it.

unnamed (21)

OOH! YAY! I like this set! It’s not too pink, and it comes with a lot of very realistic items.

unnamed (22)

It’s just another locker set to me, I like that it’s blue but other than that, I don’t care for it.

unnamed (23)

Adorable! This is an item I would consider buying!

Aww! I love the cat! She looks like Licorice! The dog is cute too!

unnamed (26)

Honestly, I don’t like this shirt. I LOVE Coconut, but I’m not a fan of the graphic.

unnamed

EEE! Love, love, LOVE this! It’s like McKenna’s loft bed, but I like it more and I love the teal colour.

And that concludes my post! What do you think of the new items? Let me know on my contact page or in the comments section!

And one last thing: Charis ( rhymes with Paris ) Rae just started self-hosting her own blog! Go check it out over charisrae.com!

SUCH AMAZING NEWS!

I can’t believe this, but permapanties and new boxes are GOING! Yup, that’s right! NO MORE PERMAPANTIES! I screamed and danced when I heard this. I wasn’t going to buy any other AG dolls besides Becca, Skye, and Poppy. But now I can!

You see, I’ve wanted Julie for so very long now. Ever since I got my first AG, Skye. Now I can start saving up for her again! YAY!

Here is the message that AG sent out:

**An Important Update for Our Customers**

“We love and appreciate our dedicated American Girl fan community, and we take our role in listening and responding to your feedback very seriously. In recent months, many of you have shared your thoughts on how we can continue delivering the great products you’ve come to expect from us. We’ve heard you, and we will be implementing two changes as a result.

First, we will be reverting to the separate underwear design for all of our 18-inch dolls. Starting today, any dolls that are currently in production or any new dolls being developed will now come with removable underwear. Because there are dolls with permanent underwear already in the market, this will be a rolling change—meaning dolls that currently have the permanent underwear design will remain as is until the inventory is sold through.

However, if you currently own an American Girl doll with the permanent underwear and are disappointed with the design, we will do a one-time, free body exchange on the doll to create one with separate underwear and return the doll to you at no cost. For details on this offer, please click here: http://bit.ly/2rKyn0n

Second, we have made the decision to return to our iconic boutique box for our 18-inch dolls. Only the new 2017 contemporary characters, as well as some of our Truly Me dolls, will come in the current packaging until inventory is sold through. In addition, none of our 18-inch doll outfits will be sewn directly into packaging, with the exception of any existing inventory for our 2017 contemporary characters.

Thank you for caring enough to share your candid and heartfelt opinions with us, and we are sorry if we disappointed you in any way. Your feedback helps us deliver on our promise to create high-quality products, services, and experiences that nourish a girl’s spirit and help develop her strength of character.

Your Friends at American Girl”

EEEE! And also, this just shows how AG really cares about their customers. How they care about our opinions and feelings! I’m so happy! Thank you American Girl!

DIY Doll Bed

Hello, lovelies! A while ago I wanted to make a doll bed. So after I did, I wanted to share how to make it with you!

2017-03-05 17.49.04

First, find a box the right size for your doll.

2017-03-05 17.49.58

Then get some felt!
2017-03-05 17.52.23

Make two squares of felt for your pillows.

2017-03-05 17.56.15

Hot glue all the sides but one for your pillow squares, and stuff them through the one side that is unglued. And please be careful with the hot glue gun! If you need help, please ask a parent or guardian for help. Once your pillows are stuffed, hot glue the unglued side to seal up your pillows.

2017-03-05 18.05.01

Find a piece of felt to cover up your box, and glue it on so it covers the box.

2017-03-05 18.10.23

Glue on your pillows.

Add bedding and you’re done! Sorry for the blurry picture!

Thanks for reading!

~Luna Mae~

Hello, lovelies! A while back, I took some pictures of my Disney Animator Cinderella doll ( renamed Luna Mae ), and I thought I’d share them with you! Let’s get started!

That’s it! Also: when I got Luna, I found Disney Animator Aurora! Her name Is Sylvia Jade. We call her Sylvie.

And I might be kind of obsessed with Ruth B’s Lost Boy. As in, I’m listening to it and singing it right now.

What’s your favourite song lately?

Soleil’s Restoration (WITH PICTURES!)

2017-04-24 15.34.02

Sorry this took so long! I was having a bunch of troubles with my pictures, ugh. And if you’re not sure who Soleil is, she’s a rescued Our Generation doll.

2017-03-05 13.27.24 (2)

Here’s the before. And please keep in mind that I’m not a professional at this. If you have any tips, let me know!

First I got my magic eraser. Then I rubbed her arms, legs, and face with it.

2017-03-05 13.31.34

Her arm before.

2017-03-05 13.32.43

And after!

2017-03-05 13.37.07.jpg

Her hair was SO bad, poor girl. It was just a rat’s nest! So I brushed it out and got it wet, and then shampooed and conditioned it. Afterwards, I brushed it out.

2017-03-05 13.50.54.jpg

As you can see, someone had dyed a bit of her hair pink.

2017-03-05 14.04.41.jpg

Then I blow-dried her hair.

2017-03-05 14.08.10.jpg

AND THE AFTER!

I’m honestly really happy with how she turned out!

And now that I have the photos worked out, I have a GAZILLION more posts planned! Yay!

And by the way, her full name is Soleil March Carver!

BLARG!!!

Agh! Everything is so BUSY lately! Really! Our choir rehearsal is this Saturday and then Monday is our SHOW! And I have to dance BY MYSELF while everyone else sings! Yikes. Exciting, but nervewracking!

I have a lot going on this week. Hopefully, after next Sunday I’ll be blogging more and feeling a lot less tired. Thanks for understanding!
