Saige’s “fixed” hair, Dual credit, YouTube, and the Truth about my Writing?

Greetings, Guys! It’s Kiki! Before, we start I want to say: sorry for not posting in awhile. I’ve been busy with other stuff recently. But I’m here now! So, let’s begin!

1. I fixed Saige’s hair. For good!

I don’t know if I’ve told you this before but Saige’s hair was really frizzy and knotted. I think it’s because Lily threw up on her 2 years ago. It was 3AM in the morning so I couldn’t give her hair the “proper” care it needed. Anyway, I used the straighten trick on her hair and it worked! The heat melted the frizz! Her hair is now soft and smells great (I washed her before I straightened it)! Now, here’s some pictures of her hair straight.

Next, I used the straw curls trick to curl her hair. I kept them in for a day and the curls really stay in!

2. Dual credit

My Mom brought up this subject to me a couple weeks ago. If you do not know what dual credit is, it’s where you’re in high school but you’re doing college courses at the same time. The idea intrigues me but it also scares me. If you are reading this and do dual credit, please comment down below what it’s like! Thank you!

3. YouTube

Yes, I’m thinking about making a channel! I’ve been making videos and trailers lately! It’s a lot of fun! But I need to make a new account and still haven’t thought of a name, so this idea is on the back burner, for now.
5. The truth about why I take forever to write stories finally comes out

I want to say that I will get writing TMVOT. The truth is: I’m a nervous writer. I get worried the grammar isn’t perfect or it sounds like a little kid wrote it. Because, somebody once said something like that about my work when I first started this blog. It was a wake up call to start writing better but I just wish it was said a little nicer. I mean I just started! Doll dimensions made a great point once: that it’s ok if your quality isn’t the greatest when you first start. It’s about having fun! I mean that’s why we blog, right? Down the road we’ll grow and mature and stuff. Also, don’t worry! It’s nobody here that said the thing about my writing, it’s a person in real life.

So, thank you for reading this post! It had some good news, real news, and just news in general!

Don’t forget to comment down below: if you do dual credit and anything else you want to say that is related to this post!

‘Till next time,

Update!

Hey, Guys! Kiki here! I’m finally back from Illinois and now at my Aunt’s house. I’ll post pictures of my trip soon! I didn’t exactly have a nice time but that’s a story for another time😉

Anyway, I’m here to update you on my bracelet giveaway! It ends Thursday(I think😜). So, don’t forget to enter! Click this link to!  https://cherrycola22.wordpress.com/2017/05/04/my-other-giveaway/

Bye, 

American Girl is listening!

Greetings, readers! It’s Kiki! I have the most exciting news! Read this from American Girl:

**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.
Can you believe it?! I was just praying to Hashem(God) about this! 

Well, thank you for reading this post! Don’t forget to comment down below your thoughts! 

Bye-bye permapanties, new box style, and sewn-in clothes!

My Travel plans!

Hullo! Kiki here! I hope you’ve had a great weekend 🙂 Mine has been a little hectic😜 

Anyway, I’m going to my Grandfathers house in Illinois. Its been over two years since I’ve seen his farm. So, I’m super excited! But I’m not just visiting him, I’m also visting, Rae and Skye! I can’t wait! I skype them every Tuesday and this Tuesday I’ll be seeing them! It’s crazy to think I haven’t seen them in over two years! 

I will be gone a week and have limited-to-no time to blog😔 My Grandfather has slow internet😕 But I will take tons of pictures! I’m also bringing a couple dolls so, I will be taking pictures for TMVOT and a Lyric photo-shoot I’m planning! So, make sure to stay tuned for all that😉 Now, I will show you my travel schedule so, you can understand my trip and how complex it is a little more 😄Let’s get started!

Monday(today): Leave to go to my Aunt’s house(my Aunt is coming with us). Which is a seven hour drive😧 I will be spending the night there.

Tuesday: Leave my Aunt’s house and drive to Rae and Skye’s house. Which, I also think is a seven hour drive and afterwards spend the night at a hotel.

Wednesday: Leave the hotel to go to my Grandfather’s farm. I don’t think the drive wil be terribly long.  Then arrive at his house in the evening and stay till Sunday(then we leave Monday morning). 

Like always, I hoped you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading! 

See ya next week! 

Reminiscing & Giveaway winner!

What’s up Guys? Kiki here! I expect that you all are pretty excited to see the winner but first -since it is my 1 year blogsversary- we’re going to reminisce for a second. Or two.😉

Here’s my first post.

img_7023-7

Wow. I seriously can’t believe it’s been one year. Time goes by so fast! I remember my first like and follower was Kaitlyn and my first comment was from my very nice Aunt. I would’ve never guessed that I’d be where I am now. I’ve grown so much and have found out my hidden talents and passions that I would’ve never thought of, if it wasn’t for blogging. I used to hate writing but now I want to write a book. I used to think photography was ok but now I want a camera and am considering that being my career. I didn’t used to know a thing about graphic design but now I know a ton and am also considering that being my career. My computer skills in general have greatly improved too. When I first started, Rae asked me for the link for this blog and I was like “How do you do that?”

I would say my faith has grown as well. I mean I’ve stood up for my beliefs a couple times and I’ve lost people who I thought were my friends. But because of that I found real friends 🙂  So, here’s a big shout out to the following: Rae, Abby, Doll dimensions(Grace), Kayla, and Skye! I really appreciate all of your comments, emails, and Skype calls! Now, since I’ve said my peace let’s get on to the winner!

Congratulations! I hope you have fun with Kamille! And if you don’t I’ll probably get a letter from her in the mail!😂 No, I’m kidding. Kamille is a sweet and loving doll. I blame myself for her self centered and mean attitude.

She’s also pretty! The contrast of her striking blue eyes and long black hair are unique! It’ll be a little weird to see her go but I know if I would’ve kept her I’d be preventing her from a girl who really loves her!
Thanks for reading this post!

Z. and her collection!

Greetings, Guys! It’s Kiki! Well, Z’s collection and her self has leaked so I had to make a post about it! Let’s get started!

She looks pretty cute but AG’s stock images of dolls almost always look less cute then they really are. I love her birthmark and eyes!

Not bad but I won’t be getting it. It’s going to be priced at 120 dollars.

This is nice. I love the camera on it so she can film! I won’t be getting it though 🙂

 Here’s Popcorn. You can tell I’m not impressed 😀

Z’s accessories! I really like them!

Love this!

This is a cute outfit but I don’t like how her hair is styled 😀

This hair style is better! I really love this outfit!

 

I hope you enjoyed this post! Comment down below if you like Z’s collection!

‘Till next time,
