My Thoughts on Luciana Vega

 

My ThoughtsonLuciana Vega.png

Hello everyone as you know AG just released the GOTY for 2018 and she is adorable. Today I will be overviewing her collection and my thoughts on it.

ย *all pictures fromย American Girl

Lucy 1

Luciana Doll and Book – $115

She is the most adorable doll. I love her. Her dress is super cute! I love her choker and boots. I’m not the biggest fan of the fanny pack I don’t think it really matches. I also love how she has a purple streak in her hair.

 

Lucy 3.gifLucy 3.gifLucy 3.giflucy 2.jpeg

Luciana’s Accessories – $25

I don’t like her accessories very much. It seems like a lot of paper and something you could easily make yourself. I think her backpack is really cute and the astronaut ice cream is a cute touch.

Lucy 10.jpeg

Space Center Accessories – $20

I love this set only because I want a NASA t-shirt for my dolls All the other stuff I could really do without.

 

Lucy 9.jpeg

Stellar Outfit – $34

This is my favorite thing in her collection. I love the jacket with the patches and the shoes are such a fun print. The only thing I don’t really like is the shirt but I may get this outfit.

Lucy 8.jpeg

Robotic Dog – $35

This is such a fun take on the regular pets the girls have. I think it’s slightly overpriced though considering some of AG’s animals are only 20 or 25 dollars.

Lucy 3.jpeg

Mar Habitat – $350

This is such a cool set. It’s so cool! I don’t have the money to buy something like this but it is such a cool thing.

Lucy 6.jpeg

Flight Suit – $28

I don’t have much need for this in my collection. I think it’s cute though.

Lucy 5.jpeg

Luciana’s PJs – $24

These are super cute. I love the leggings, I didn’t actually think these were PJ’s the first time I saw them. I think they could definitely think they could be used as a regular outfit.

Lucy 4.jpeg

Creation Station – $100

This set is also super cute. I love how they included actual legos that’s so fun. I feel that the set is a little overpriced for what it is. I’ll probably try to recreate it sometime though.

Lucy.jpeg

Telescope Set – $40

This set is so cute!! I love the telescope the print on the blanket is cute as well.

So that’s all of Luciana’s collection! I’m really excited about her stuff in her collection and will be most likely purchasing a few of the outfits. ๐Ÿ™‚

What are your thoughts on Luciana’s collection?ย 

Have a lovely day,

Rose โค

First spray down the hair with water or I’ve made a hair concoction which is just water with a little bit of conditioner in it.

After that take a strand of hair from the front.

Then slowly pull the hair back make sure the hair flows nicely and isn’t bumpy.

Tree Time

Merry (Early) Christmas Dollmas everyone! It’s that time of the year when you get to post super fun posts about the best holiday Christmas!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Onto the photostory!

Ellie’s POV

IMG_1963

It was a cold December day, I was reading my favorite bookย Meet Marie-Grace when Emily stumbles in holding our Christmas tree.

IMG_1964

“Ellie wanna help me set up the Christmas tree?” asked Emily excitedly.

“Sure!” I cried I never rejected a chance to decorate the house in Christmas-y splendor.

“Awesome, be right back.” said Em running out of the room.

IMG_1965

She came back in holding a large basket of ornaments with a string of lights strung over the top.

IMG_1967

“Alrighty, let’s get started.” said Em.

IMG_1968

First we set up the lights.

IMG_1969

Then it was onto the ornaments!

IMG_1970IMG_1971

“It looks great.” cried Emily smiling.

“Let’s light it up.” I replied.

IMG_1973

THE END

Sorry for such a short phototstory! We’ll have 2 huge photostories coming on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day as well as on Sunday I have a Holiday Hairstyle How To! So be sure to come back for those. I have many more holiday posts coming soon!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you had a spectacular Thanksgiving and ate lots of delicious food.

Kristen’s POV

IMG_1886

Thanksgiving dinner had been eaten and everyone had settled down and put on their PJ’s.

IMG_1887

“Is it time to do the Circle of Thanks?” asked Emily excitedly.

IMG_1888

“What’s the Circle of Thanks?” asked Ellie.

IMG_1889

“Oh you weren’t here last year Ellie! It’s our annual Thanksgiving tradition. We take a stuffed animal and toss it around and once it’s thrown to you, super fast you have to say 3 things your thankful for.” said Emily.

“Here we go!” cried Emily tossing it high in the air.

IMG_1891

“Family, Friends, and Food.” I said.

IMG_1892

“Ahh!” cried Ellie who was obviously flustered by our fast paced game.

“Umm.. pancakes, Iphones, and comfy pillows.” she cried.

IMG_1893

“Books, church, and soccer.” said Marisol.

IMG_1894

“Leggings, all our pets, and y’all.” said Sam.

IMG_1895

“Minecraft, nature, and sports.” said Molly.

IMG_1896

Then Molly did the unspoken she threw the animal into the middle.

IMG_1897

And chaos broke out.

THE END

The Circle of Thanks

The Circle of Thanks 2ย 

That was our third year doing the Circle of Thanks which is super awesome!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for reading.
