Taking a Look at AG’s Tenny and Felicity Releasse

Hello, everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. I was out of town! Now I’m back and to my surprise what do I see but Tenney Grant and Felicity Merrimen’s collection out. I was super excited. Now to the overview/release/thingy.Β I will not be reviewing the TM or Beforever release in this post that is to come this week.

Tenney Grant Release

ag-1

Tenney and Book $115

Tenney is absolutely adorable. I love her so much. I’m not sure if I’ll be purchasing her. Probably not but she is adorable.

 

 

ag-2

Logan Everrt $115

He’s okay. His face kinda creeps me out. Good for girls who want a boy doll for their collection. I won’t be purchasing him.

 

ag-3

 

Tenney’s Guitar $34

Her guitar is really cute Β It comes with the guitar, pick, and notebook. I wish the TM guitar had come with a pick.

 

ag-4

Tenney’s Performance Outfit $36

Overpriced in my opinion. But the cowboy boots are so cute. I need them.

ag-5

Tenney’s Performance Stage $225

Way to expensive but really cool. I love the amp and the chair.

ag-6

Logan’s Drum Set $68

This set is reasonably priced for AG. I think it’s really cool for a girl or boy doll.

ag-7

Tenney’s Gingham Pj’s $24

I need these and probably will be getting them next time I go to the AG store. I love them so so much.

ag-8

Tenney’s Golden Retriever $24

Another dog, Tenney needs a cat people.

ag-9

Tenney’s Picnic Outfit $28

This outfit is pretty cute. I adore the shoes and the shorts are adorable.

ag-10

Tenney’s Picnic Set $28

I love this set so much. It comes with fried chicken and mashed potatoes. It’s the best.

 

 

Felicity Merrimen’s Collection

 

ag-11

Felicity and Book $115

Felicity is back! Yes! She looks exactly the same as the old one. I love her so much. I think I like her more than Tenney. I can’t wait to read her books.

ag-12

Felicity’s Undergarments $28

Nope not getting these but why did AG only give her 2 things.

I hope you enjoyed my little overview of the AG collection. Part 2 is coming soon with Beforever and TM release. πŸ™‚

Bye,

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! πŸ˜€ I actually didn’t do much for Valentine’s Day… ❀ I still have a few hours. πŸ˜› Anyway, I had absolutely no clue what I was going to do for a Valentine’s Day post. It’s been raining all day so my first idea, cute party outside.. wasn’t going to work. So in the end, I took Cici out for a few pictures.

dsc_0123

Cici would like you to have gummy bears for Valentine’s Day! ❀

dsc_0124dsc_0125dsc_0126

She still insisted on wearing her rainboots. (it was not because I couldn’t get them off her feet.)

dsc_0127dsc_0128dsc_0129dsc_0130dsc_0131

Cici says thanks to all of our amazing 89 followers. ❀

dsc_0133

Thanks for reading and Happy Valentine’s Day! πŸ™‚ If your looking for fun things to do today for friends/family because you forgot. πŸ˜› Here they are.

  • Just send you friends or family a text saying whatever
  • Make your mom or dad a card telling them how much you appreciate them
  • Make your family a yummy baked good
  • Tomorrow slip a note in a friend’s locker that says something sweet
  • Send your grandparents or family a picture of something like you and your siblings
  • Leave a random note somewhere if your going shopping that says something encouraging or funΒ 

Okay! I’m out of ideas now, not really I could probably post thousands more.

Bye,

dsc_0115dsc_0119

Hello everyone! It’s is I, Kristen here bringing you some very very important news.

The biggest is…Β WE ARE NOW STARTING A POSTING SCHEDULE.Β Yay!! Here’s how it will go,

Saturday or Sunday: Photostory

Wednesday: Review

Friday: Photoshoot

Monday: Blogging 101/Updates

So what do you think! πŸ™‚ I felt like I just needed to get on a schedule. This schedule will start February the 20th. Which is a week and 1 day away. I’ll take this week to get everything planned out. πŸ˜›

dsc_0117

Now onto.. some other news. Tenney Grant is officially here. πŸ˜€ Eek! I’m so excited. I got my AG Mag in the mail a few days ago, and right there when you open it is Tenney as well as Logan her friend who will also here. Tenney is so pretty… I really love her. AG still hasn’t released a date when she will come out. It was rumored as February 11th but that was yesterday and Tenney is still not there. So, I guess we’ll have to wait.

Blogger Recognition Award

blogger rec award.png

Photo Credit: Stay and Watch the Stars

Thank you so muchΒ SamanthaΒ for nominating me.

Rules

  • Thank the person who nominated you and a leave a link to their blog
  • Give a little bit of why/how you started your blog
  • Give 2 pieces of advice to new/old bloggers
  • Nominate 15 bloggers (don’t forgot to tell them)

How I Started my Blog –

Umm… I started this blog on June 1st of 2015.. that’s 20 months I’ve been blogging. I was inspired byΒ Doll DiariesΒ to start my blog. So on June 1st, I had a name I made the blog and started posting. I was so excited! In that time we’ve gone from a doll family of 6 to a doll family of 8! πŸ™‚

My Advice

Quality not quantity, you can have 16o posts… but the questions is are they good posts. If you just started blogging, remember to make you first couple of posts pretty good. Have good grammar, quality photos (if possible), and just have fun

Β Have a plan, I was never that into the planning until this year. If your a pretty busy person. I’d suggest having a blogging schedule or once a month sitting down and writing a bunch of post ideas, in case during the month your stuck on what to post about.

Followers aren’t everything

When I started I was constantly comparing myself to people with more followers. I was sad that I wasn’t getting a lot. The thing is, your followers don’t matter as much as you sharing what you love with the world. So remember just because you have only 15 followers doesn’t mean your blog isn’t good. It might mean you just started, or you don’t have as much experience, etc.

I know that was 3 tips! If you ever have blogging questions feel free to post them down below and I’d be happy to help.

Now to the nominees…..

I nominate anyone who…

Likes milk chocolate better than dark chocolate

Has blue eyes

or

Your name has the letter SΒ in it.

πŸ™‚

OG Travel Set Review

Hello everyone! πŸ™‚ Today will be a lovely review of the OG Travel Set! I hope you enjoy.

 

dsc_0501

It comes with:

  • Suitcase with luggage tag
  • Toothbrush with case
  • Toothpaste
  • Conditioner
  • Shampoo
  • Mac n Cheese
  • Fruit
  • Roll
  • Jelly and Butter things
  • Gummy bears
  • Sunscreen
  • Floss
  • Camera
  • Passport
  • Pen
  • Boarding Pass

dsc_0502

Let’s start with the suitcase! It’s super durable and came with fun stickers to decorate it with.

dsc_0503

It also came with a little kitty luggage tag. I haven’t wrote anything on it yet though.

dsc_0504

It’s pretty deep.

dsc_0505

I tested to see how much clothing you could fit it. I was able to fit 2 shirts, 1 jacket, and 1 pair of pants in it with a little bit extra room still.

dsc_0506

The tolietries are so cute. The sunscreen was an adorable touch. The toothbrush holder was such a cool idea. The floss is a little eh.. because all it is, is a piece of plastic shaped like a tooth. There’s no pretend opening or anything on it. The shampoo is also cute.

dsc_0507

And it all fits in this little tiny bag. πŸ˜€

dsc_0509

I love, love, love the passport. It’s so cute, it even has a little name and picture at the top. The boarding pass is fun because I have another one from a different set. So the dolls are going on a trip. The camera is good.. I guess.

dsc_0510

The food is probably my favorite part of the whole set. It’s really cool. It looks exactly like a lunch you would get on a plan or at the airport. The gummy bears are cute too.

dsc_0511

The mac n cheese as you can see has black spots on it. I think it’s supposed to be pepper.

dsc_0501

Thanks for reading my review! I hope you enjoyed it. πŸ™‚

Family Meeting *AGPS*

Hello everyone! πŸ™‚ It’s been a while since I posted a photo-story and thought it was time to do another one. I’m hoping to be doing more photo-stories one a week maybe. πŸ˜›

Kristen’s POV

dsc_0485

“Okay everybody, listen up!” I yelled over the chaos of my sister talking/arguing.

dsc_0486

“I have some announcements.” I started.

“We need to start having more family time. I mean.. half of us barely know each other, and we haven’t even properly introduced Cici to the family.

dsc_0487

“Hello everyone!” said Cici.

dsc_0488

“And now for my big announcement.” I said standing up to make it more dramatic. “I’ve decided to have family jobs.” I called.

dsc_0489

“Say what.” cried Sam.

dsc_0490

“Jobs.. sounds like work and I’m lazy.” said Marisol matter-of-factly.

dsc_0491

“I know guys, it sounds scary but trust me it’ll be fun!” I said cheerily. “Here are the jobs

Cook

Dog Walker/Pet Carer

Babysitter

Laundry

Planner

and

Homework Helper.” I said

dsc_0493

(Sorry for the blurrieness)

“I’ll do cook.” said Molly excitedly.

“I guess I can do laundry since.. I like to “borrow” peoples clothes.” said Marisol.

“Planner for me.” cried Sam.

dsc_0494

dsc_0495

“Me and Cici, can be the dog walkers.” said Lyssie.

dsc_0496

“I guess… I’ll be the homework helper and babysitter.” said Emily hesitatantly.

And then it was finished. πŸ™‚ We had all picked out a job! πŸ™‚

The End

I hope you enjoyed. πŸ˜€

My Thoughts on Gabrielle McBride

Hi guys! πŸ™‚ I hope you all had an awesome New Year. Happy 2017! I can’t wait to see what this year holds in store for this blog and just everything else. Anyway, the GOTY came out. Yay! And I thought I’d do a review/overview about her and her clothing.

Photo Credit: American Girl Website

gabby-1

$115.00

First off the doll herself. I love Gabrielle’s Meet Outfit but I’m not the biggest fan of the doll. She looks alot like some of the TM dolls. I just wish she was a little more unique.

gabby-2

$28.00

Her accessories are adorable. Doll sized bobby pins are always needed. The band-aids don’t make that much sense to me because she’s a dancer.. I get if you were playing soccer. But dance I don’t see as a sport that would need band-aids.

 

gabby-3

$24.00

These are so cute. The slippers are adorable and the top is super cute. This outfit could probably pass as a regular outfit if you added different shoes.

gabby-4

$22.00

Gabby’s cat Maya. The cat creeps me out to be honest. It’s the eyes that just look strange. No offense Maya. πŸ˜›

gabby-5

$58.00

This set is super cute. The price surprises me considering Isabelle’s dance barre was $68 or so when she came out.

gabby-6

$34.00

The showtime accessories aren’t doing much for me. It seems like all things you could kinda’ve piece together on your own.

gabby-7

$28.00

I love this outfit so so so much. I will certaintly be purchasing it in the near future. It comes with leggings, shorts, a leotard, those cute shoes, and the little over shirt thing for $28. What!

gabby-8

$32.00

This outfit is also adorable as well. I love the top as well as the gloves.

gabby-9

$48.00

I want these so badly. The performance case.. :D! The headphones are so cute. I wish AG made just a headphone set. πŸ™‚

So that’s my opinion on Gabrielle’s things.

-Geeky_Girl ❀
