I Finally Got a Camera and Possible Changes…?

DSC_1081

Greetings, Guys! It’s Kiki here! Today, I have for you a post I’ve been dreaming of making since last year: The I got a Camera post! I received my Nikon D3400 for Hanukkah, I was very surprised. My Mom actually tricked me cause, I unwrapped my gift and it was a Nikon box, so I was like “Oh, you got me a camera!” Then my Mom said “Sorry, it’s just a box”, in a seriously convincing voice. So, I was second guessing myself but was still suspicious how my parents’ got a Nikon box. When I opened up the box I was like, “You tricked me!”

Anyway, I’m so, so grateful to my parents’ 😊 Now, here is a little photo-shoot of Chrissa and maybe some pictures of my dog, Lily. I will also do pros and cons and my favorite features 😉 Let’s begin, shall we?

Isn’t Chrissa just beautiful in these pictures?

Now, I’ll go onto the pros and cons 🙂

Some pros: It’s extremely user-friendly (which is great cause I got another camera off eBay in October and sent it back (it was heavily used and old) and that manual and settings were very hard to understand), long battery life, super lightweight, it’s small, the guide button which also goes with user friendly, etc. Mostly, what I love about it is how user-friendly it is 😀

Cons: I mean I just got it less than a month ago so I haven’t found really anything bad with it but I hear it’s video audio isn’t the best. I haven’t had the chance to put it in video mode yet, though.

Now, I’m going onto the ‘changes’ part of this post 😀

Well, I’m really considering buying a domain! I have thought about this idea for awhile but got more serious a couple weeks ago. I love KTTL-G but I’m ready for a change. Something more professional and me. I have already picked out a name, but that’s not going to be disclosed until I buy it 😉 I don’t really know when it will be released; I need time to work every thing out (probably around the summer time). This blog will not be strictly about AG (as much as I love it, it can be hard to only post about it). I know most bloggers do this thing called a “Launch Tour”. If a nice person would tell me in the comments what it is and how to do it I might do it when I buy it and stuff (I’m very out of the loop, bear with me 😄)! If you guys are interested, of course 🙂

So, thank you for reading this post. I hope you enjoyed it 🙂 Do you have a camera or want one? What do you think of self-hosting? Do you know what a Launch tour is?

Till, next time,

Ps: Here’s some Lily pictures:

The end of Hanukkah- Day 8- Blogukkah

Hey, Guys! Sorry, I missed day 6 and 7 😦 I got busy and also had nothing planned. But today I took some pictures of my Dolls Hanukkah Feast and some stuff that I got for Hanukkah. Let’s get started!

DSC_0067

DSC_0076Caro tied Levi up 😀

DSC_0078

DSC_0079While, they waited to eat they tried to see who had the best country accent and played ‘guess my movie’.

DSC_0108Levi also participated when his mouth wasn’t taped! Chrissa’s mouth also got taped cause she started getting to bratty and sore loser-ish.

DSC_0111I got the Eleven chase and the Mike Wheeler Funk Pop!

DSC_0117I got this beautiful jewelry holder thing. I think they’re supposed to be golden angel wings but I guess it could be a mythological creature, as well 😀 How do you like my Luna Lovegood inspired jewelry I made? Possible tutorial?

 

And I also got something else but I’ll leave that for another post 😉 Well, I hope enjoyed this post and my little Blogukkah series!

See ya next time,

Ps: Do you want to hear something cool? We saw George Strait at the restaurant we went to for my Mom’s birthday!

AG Hanukkah Gift Set Review- Day 3- Blogukkah

AG SetHello! Kiki here! Today, I have for you a review on American Girl’s Hanukkah Gift Set! I bought this set last year at one of AG’s pop-up stores. I was actually going to get Rebecca’s menorah and dreidel set, but this one came with more and was cheaper. I still want Rebecca’s, but I just looked on the AG website and it said ‘no longer available’! What?!? Nooooo!! Wait, now it says ‘limited quantities’. Anyway, let’s begin the review, shall we?

DSC_0962

We’ll start off with this nice menorah here 😉 So, the menorah is nicely made and very realistic. My only complaint is, it’s a little top-heavy. Nine blue and light-blue striped candles perfectly in but be careful cause they do bend very easily.

DSC_0966

In the center you can see  the Star of David design.

DSC_0967

Next, you get a box with some designs and in the Hanukkah colors.

DSC_0969

And inside the box you get a little blue bag that has a drawstring closure.

DSC_0971

Lots of little goodies lie inside 😀

DSC_0973

A dreidel that does spin and is in matching colors.

DSC_0975

Six pieces of reversible gelt. One side menorah, other side Star of David

DSC_0991

This cute little bracelet that has a baby blue bow and a Star of David.

DSC_0989

That concludes the review! All in all I rate the set a 4.5 out of 5. What was your favorite item out of this set? Would you but this set? Tell me in the comments down below!

Bye,

Twilight Inspired Photo-shoot/ Introducing….

Hello, Guys! It’s Kiki! Thank you for taking my polls/surveys! They really helped me get an idea of what you guys want to see 🙂 I was pleasantly surprised that you guys wanted more fandom and photo-shoot posts. So, a couple weekends ago I took photos for a fandom-photo-shoot. I chose Twilight because it’s amazing (😍), it gave me a chance to introduce Levi, and on Freeform they were having “Twifright weekend”. You’re probably wondering: Who’s Levi? Well, um, uh, it’s better to just show you! Let’s begin the shoot! *dims lights then turns them back on*

One more thing, if you are a Twilight hater or do not like slightly romantic photo-shoots this is not a good post for you😉 *now dims lights for real*

Wasn’t it so cute!?!😍It might just be my favorite! 😉 And welcome Levi to the doll family! Don’t forget to comment down below!

Elven Tieback and Info on My School Life

Hello, mellons! It’s Kiki! Long time no see, eh? I get so much homework that “free time” is a foreign concept. This school is college prep so that’s why I have so much work and why it’s set up like one. I have a plaza and at least an hour (sometimes more) a day of “free time” which is the time you get any homework done. Adjusting is the hardest part. I have to get up early and figure out my classes and what they want me to answer for my assignments. Also the kids, they are just trashy here. Saying at least two curse words in  every sentence, talking about inappropriate things, and the boys in my grade especially, make fun of literally everyone (even me). My teachers are pretty nice though, especially my English teacher, Mr. C.

I had a algebra presentation yesterday and I got 95! I was super nervous and it was just me not with a group or anything. I would’ve got 100 if I had more eye contact but 95 is still pretty good. I also have a Spanish presentation Monday. I made a power-point about Antoni Gaudi.

Anyway, I squeezed in hairstyle tutorial pics to my schedule so without further ado!

img_9789

Here are the supplies you’re going to need: wire-wigged brush, baby elastics, spray bottle, and a device so you can read this tutorial post 😀

img_9790Mist hair and brush.

img_9791Take out a little section of hair in the front on both sides (and these sections will stay out the entire time.)

img_9792Now, take on the top and start an intricate French braid.

img_9794

Stop adding hair on the bottom a little past the ear. The correct terminology is a ‘lace braid’.

img_9793Stop adding hair on the top when you hit the middle of the head and just continue a regular three strand braid and then secure with an elastic.

img_9795Repeat on the other side.

img_9796Take a little section and split it into two pieces and then twist.

img_9797It should look like this and then repeat on the other side.

img_9798Clip the two twisted sections onto the top of the head and unravel the braids, but not all the way.

img_9799Take the two unraveled braids and start a fishtail.

img_9800Once you a fishtailed a little, include the twisted sections.

img_9801Finish off the fishtail till you run out of hair and secure with an elastic. Now, here’s a little photo-shoot so you can see her face and to give more of an “elven” feel.

img_9868img_9872img_9869img_9873img_9871img_9870Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! Comment down below if you’re going to try this and if you think it’s beautiful! Also, tell me how you’re school year is going so far?

Novaer mellonanins,

Ps: How do you like my new blog theme and design? And what’s your favorite hairstyle I’ve done so far?

Love the Skin You’re in- Tag

Greetings, mellons! It’s Kiki! I was nominated by Julia to do this really cool tag that’s all about overcoming your insecurities and being more confident! Which, I do have problems with. Thank you so much, Julia! You’re probably wondering: why did you post this on you doll blog? Well, its because I’ve been posting a lot on my writing and photography blog (CWWC) and not really on this one…he..he. I’ll definitely work on that! But here I am now, so let’s begin!

1. One feature you love about yourself?

img_9472

That’s tough…..I have a lot of features I like. I do like my hair. It’s very thick and has some strands that are red or blonde. Which, I think is pretty cool.

My eyes are pretty. They are a light-ish brown with a tint of yellow

around the pupil and then my iris is a green-ish blue-ish dark grey. My parents both have brown/hazel eyes so me, not having brown/hazel eyes was slim. So, I think that it’s pretty cool that I beat the odds. (Sorry, if I look scared or worried. I don’t really like anything near my eyes even phones😉)

My height is not too bad, as well. I don’t really like that I have to buy my clothes online and that my feet are so big, though. My eyebrows are fine, my lips are fine, my bone frame is fine (even though it’s rather large but I don’t mind cause I’m not really prone to limbs breaking and stuff.)

2. One feature you wish/wished you could change that you are trying to accept or have accepted?

I really don’t have any, but my neck is a little different. It’s definitely not normal. Other people’s necks are thin and long. Mine is short and chunky. But weird chunky. It’s hard to explain. I also don’t like these red bumps on my upper arms and legs. Lotion helps a little. I haven’t eaten gluten in a week and they’re actually clearing up so that’s great!

3. Have you ever thought of getting surgery to change your imperfections?

Never! That stuff freaks me out and I wouldn’t really be me anymore. I’d be an imposter. A girl who believed society’s lies (excuse the doll mess 😄)

4. Has a family member or friend ever put you down about your physical appearance? If so, what for?

Yeah, they have. My weight, my height, what I wear, how I do my hair, my hair when it had blue tips, and I think that’s it. A lot of these have came from, so-called “friends”. Insecure and immature people are attracted to me. So, that’s fun.

5. Something you love about your fashion sense or style?

It’s..unique? Yeah, I’ll go with that. It doesn’t always go but it’s always comfortable! I love wearing striped or colored tees that are loose fitting, and bright colored french terry shorts in the summer. In the fall/winter I have more of a style. It’s still casual just not as bright and stretchy.

6. Why is your body a great place to be?  

Well, it’s like a tool. You can do great things if you make the right choices 🙂 So, if you make good choices you’ll go places and conquer things.

Thank you for reading this post! I hope you enjoyed! I tag: Chloe,Abby,Brooke Jade,Samantha.

Goodbye,

img_9654

Ps: You may notice my theme has changed and stuff. I just got a laptop so I decided it’s the perfect time to update my blog design for the fall. I’m not done yet, I’m still tweaking and making a header. So, stay tuned for that!

Sister Picks Out My Back-to- School Outfits- Caro and Chrissa

Hey, Guys! It’s I, the one and only Chrissa! Today, is all about me! I’m doing the popular challenge “My (somebody) picks out my outfits”. Except, I’m doing back to school outfits. Carolina will be picking out the outfits and stuff. We tend to fight and disagree about almost everything. We’ll see how this goes….

What’s up? It’s Caro now! Ya know, the best fashion and literally anything else (that’s fandomy, of course 😉) expert in the world! I trust that Chrissa, has explained to you the basics. She is currently in the dressing room, waiting for me to pick three outfits for her. Then she’ll try them on and buy her favorite. Well, what are you waiting for? let’s get started!

Hmm…so many dresses to choose. Let’s go with, the cheetah one. They are her favorite animal, I think. Plus, she can be girly.

She kinda has a tomboy side. She changes her style like everyday so this is real simple. Not. I mean one day she refuses to wear dresses the next, everything has to be pink!

And then, let’s go with a peplum butterfly top. Even though, she’s going into 8th grade she’s seriously immature..hehe.

“Chrissa! OPEN UP! I have a ton of clothes and they’re about to fall!”

“Ok, you don’t have to yell! I’m going to tell, Daddy! And you’re going to be in big trouble because I’m his little girl!”

“Whatever, I hope you know that you’re just lying to yourself. Anyway this your first outfit”.

5 Minutes later…

Eh. It looked really cute, but I don’t think it does on me. I think Ara, could rock this outfit. She’s got a beautiful face, ya know? My face is to round. The boots are cute, though.

5 minutes later…

OH MY GOODNESS!! I love this one! In this outfit I’d be the coolest would be kid in school.

5 minutes later…

I don’t really know what to think about this one. The hat is so cute! But the top is a little bit, little kid-ish. I don’t know!

Hello, it’s Kiki! While, Chrissa is having a hard time choosing, you guy’s can look at a little photo-shoot and take our poll!

(Insert think. I knew I forgot something.)

I’m back! Remember me?! Now, I’m going to tell you what outfit I’ve picked! And it is……………………………………………………..……………………………………………………………………………..

Sorry, if it’s not your choice. It is my decision, after all😉

Well, I hoped you enjoyed this post! How did your guy’s back-to-school shopping go? I go to school Monday and I’m pretty nervous😬

My Trip Pictures to Illinois Pt. 2

Greetings, Guys! It's Kiki! Finally, I'm here posting part two. Sorry, I took awhile, I've been a little busy lately but I'll tell you more about that in my next post 🙂 So, let's start off with some pics of CC! Cause I have a lot of them and she's cute 😄

img_8924

img_8925So cute!

img_8881

img_8888

img_8884

img_8883Love this one!💙

img_8886img_8887OMGOODNESS! Look at her little fluffy paw😍

img_8878

img_8876

img_8885She's like: "NO, MORE PICTURES!!!"

Me: Fine, fine we'll move onto Caro. She at least enjoys the attention unlike a little someone *Gives CC the evil stare*

img_8918A little photo-shoot of  Carolina! These were taken after I took pics for TMVOT Chap 3!

img_8919

img_8921

img_8920img_8922img_8923She's so photogenic!

img_8893The swings, the house, the angle, I just love it!

img_8917Here's a close-up on my swing. My Dad actually made them! 😊

img_8916Here's Chance on his swing and his phone 😜

img_8902Next, is some different angles of the barn. I really enjoyed taking these and the gray sky really makes it 😉

img_8904img_8913

img_8903

img_8908More pictures of the barn animals.

img_8909

img_8905I found some more kittens and they tried to be scary but I couldn't resist and picked them all up more than once…hehe😋 There were 4 of them, by the way.

img_8907

This little black one is literally the cutest!😍

img_8906This is one of the kittens in Part one, trying to hide from me.

img_8910Can't forget about the walking carpet! 😂

img_8901Me, waiting for my turn🙂

img_8900While I was driving, they decided it was a good time for a family reunion! The smaller dog on the right that is also showing more face is Niña. She's way prettier but she growled at my Aunt so everyone was like scared of her. She was ok with me though, of course, since I'm a canismouth.

Yes, I just made that up 😄

img_8898Silly sibling picture time!

img_8899Chance's face😂

img_8926Now, it's time to say goodbye.

img_8927After a long drive back to my Aunt and Uncle's house we were greeted by a thunderstorm that knocked out the electricity.

img_8928

Which, inspired me to write a poem! Here it is:

Raindrops

When a somber gray paint the sky

Thunder will crash

Lightening will strike

The wild wind will you give you insight

 

That in no time at all

Rain will fall

You can not stop it, no matter how hard you try

Without it, you'd be a crispy fry

 

I love the feeling on this dreary day

Though, it is scary to some

Just grab a book and lay

Listening to the droplets come.

By: Kiki

Eventually the power came back one and I had wi-fi again, since I went like a week without it in Illinois! I did have fun doing riddles in the dark, though😉

Well, that's it! I hope you enjoyed this post! Comment down below: Your favorite part and picture!

 

Novaer,

My Trip Pictures to Illinois Pt. 1

Greetings, Guys! It’s Kiki! So, you all should know that I went to Illinois to see my Grandpa (Opa) in late May and that I took TONS of pictures. Yes, I know this an overdue post. Sorting through pictures and watermarking and stuff takes a lot of work, ya know. But fear not cause I have done the perilous journey for your entertainment. So, with that being said, let’s begin!

img_8855

img_8854

The St. Louis arch, which means we’re almost there!

img_8856Finally after to many days and hours of driving we’ve made it to Illinois!

img_8857After a couple more hours of driving, we were greeted by Niñi (I have no idea how to spell it but it’s Spanish for little boy).

img_8860And CC! My cat but everyone (except my Opa) thinks its CCs’ kid. I guess it will always be a mystery 😉

img_8858

img_8863

Here are some random black cats.

img_8872Wandering around his land.

img_8895

img_8864This bull was pretty small but he was a big jerk😐

img_8865

I found these cute little kittens in the barn, scared for their life because of me and Niñi (that dog follows you wherever you go. And it got annoying really quick!)

img_8891I can’t forget about the sheep, who were also afraid of me but the little lambs are so CUTE!!!😍

img_8870

img_8869More wandering…

img_8868img_8867He had so many wild flowers on his land and I loved it.🙂

img_8894img_8911img_8866

img_8896

I found this toad that has one of the best camouflages I’ve seen in awhile, cause I almost stepped on or ran over him with the tractor😂

img_8912This is at the front of his driveway.

img_8882Me attempting to take a selfie with CC… I didn’t work out 😜 Our faces are so weird!

img_8889And lastly me and Chance found out that CC has kittens. Aren’t they cute? I love the gray color on their fur

img_8890Here’s CC with her kittens 🙂

Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! And I’ll post Pt. 2 sometime in the near future!

Bye,

My Crazy Fourth of July & Fireworks photo-shoot!

Greetings and Happy late Fourth of July! 🎉 It’s your firework lover, Kiki here! Anyway, I hope you had an amazing 4th! Full of breathtaking fireworks, hanging out with friends and family, and unforgettable memories! I actually had the best 4th yet! Get ready for a long story about the family who invited us over for July 4th😄

My Mom likes watching this Guy’s YT channel (It’s called TeNak Talk and his name is Mr. Hall, by the way) and my Dad found out he lives closer to us than he thought (he lives and hour and 30 minutes away.) So, my Mom contacted him and we set up a time to Skype him as his family (that was two weeks ago; I think.) We really hit it off and stuff. So, throughout the last two weeks just us kids have Skyped each other. They have a daughter that’s my age and a son that’s Chance’s age. And then two days ago in the afternoon Mr. Hall calls my Mom and asks if we’d like to come to his house for Fourth of July and we happily accepted. When we get down there, they showed us their property and then we had dinner. Of course, I was shy and a little bit uncomfortable but that all changed when we set off fireworks…. I’ll tell you my almost death experience in a sec 😉 😂 For now, you’ll be seeing a firework photo-shoot!

 


 








 










 







 

img_8641

You’re probably thinking “This looks like a non-dangerous firework”. Well, guess what? YOU’RE WRONG!!

img_8642

What happened was, that they lit three fireworks on the table at the same time. Other fireworks are also on that table and one lit firework tipped over and lit some other ones in our direction. Of course, I’m oblivious to it cause I just wanted a decent photo but then I hear people running and making some noise. I’m like cowards, but I look up and see them coming right at me! while, I’m running (I was the last one to evacuate) they’re shooting out in front of my feet and everything. Here’s what happened to my clothes.

img_8629

Look at those burn marks!

img_8589

Here’s my pocket, the mesh melted and burned.

img_8590

Lastly, my shirt got a little burned and now has a hole.

img_8630

I also got this mysterious scratch. We’re still trying to find the criminal 😜 But I’m serious getting hit by a firework got me out of my shell! I don’t exactly know why, but it did!

After fireworks we jumped on their trampoline for hours, Mr. Hall showed me his set up for his vids, and then got home at like 3:00 Am.

 

Well, I hope you enjoyed this post! Tell me in the comments down below: How you liked the Fireworks photo-shoot (and which pic you liked. I love the bokeh ones😍) and if you ever had a Firework gone wrong before! 😄

 

Until next time!

P.S: I can’t believe my Birthday is in 4 days!😮
