This or That

Hi Dollies,

I always love to see This or That's on blogs. It's so fun to read other people's opinions :)
So, that's why I made this This or That! 


1. The Sweet Savannah Dress OR Isabelle's Metallic Dress?


2. Isabelle's Sparkly Skort OR the Flower Skirt?


3. The top from the Sunny Isle Shirt OR the top from the Easy Breezy Outfit?


4. The brown with pink hat OR the white with green and a flower hat?


5. The white sunglasses OR the brown sunglasses?

My opinion:

  1. Oh my dollie, this is hard!! I think the Sweet Savannah Dress, because it's really classic and I love the print!
  2. The Flower Skirt. This one is my favorite skirt, TBH. It's so bright and floral!
  3. The Sunny Isle shirt. The yellow is perfect for the summer and I love the detail of some gemstones on the shoulder of the top!
  4. The brown with pink hat, because this one suits every outfit.
  5. Ohh… HARD!! I literally can't choose. They are both so cool!
Tell me your choices in the comments down below :)

AG pool fun

Hi dollies,

Here is a photo story about Caroline, Rory, Kanani and Isabelle who have lots of fun at the pool!



They all look really good in their swimsuits.
Caroline's swimsuit is a retired MAG 2-in-1 swim outfit from American Girl.
Rory is wearing the floral swim outfit from AG. Kanani is wearing the retired blue tankini from AG. And Isabelle is wearing a retired in-store-only swim outfit.


Caroline and Rory are having a great time with their dog Barksee and their treats from the Beach Chair Set from American Girl.


Don't forget to use the sunscreen when you're tanning! This sunscreen is cute, because it's pink :)


Isabelle is… well, I guess she's taking her beauty nap, hihi.


Kanani is reading Saige's book to get to know her a little better. It's a really good book!


Isabelle woke up and she and Rory and Caroline went in the swimming pool.
"That is so refreshing!" said Caroline. "Absolutely!" said Rory.


Our dollies own quite a big flip flop collection!


Kanani said "Don't forget our delicious treats!"


Caroline said "These fruit kabobs are really good."
They all had an amazing summer day!!

I also made a video of this!! Go check it out here or in the sidebar ->

What's your perfect summer day? Please tell me in the comments down below :)

Daisy Chain Award

Hi Happy People,

I got tagged two times for the Daisy Chain Award! I can't wait to answer all these fun questions.




Questions from ‘The pony tales sisters’ - Mama Hen

1. How long have you been collecting dolls?
I started collecting AG dolls in 2009. 

2.What doll brands do you have or want to have?
None :)  I’ll stick to AG

3. Are your dolls geeks, fashionistas, or something else?
Well, all my dolls have their own personalities, but most of them are fashionistas.

4. Are you excited for the BeForever makeover from AG?
Yes I am!! I can’t wait for the new outfits for the dolls and I think that the book makeovers are so pretty! I also love the new name.

5. Have you ever taken your dolls with you to parks, plays, etc.?
I love to take my dolls to a (famous) city and make pictures with them there. I made some cute pictures with my friend Lacey in the park in Boston. I also made some pictures with Kenna in Baltimore and London. But I mostly take pictures in my backyard or in my house.

6. Do you like making your own doll clothes and accessories?
Yes I do! It’s still a bit hard, but I like it. I am usually bussy with my school work. But in a vacation I like to make something.

7. Do you prefer videos or photostories?
Ohh! That’s a hard question! I usually make photo stories. When I have more time I love to make videos!

8. Do you prefer MyAGs or Historicals?
I prefer MAG’s, because you can give them a personality and a style <3


Questions from ‘American Girls & Books’ - Lydia

1. Do you like to write?
Yes, I love to write stories and I love to write blog posts.

2. Are your dolls modern and dress up in modern clothes, or do they dress up in clothes from their historical time period to?
My dolls are modern and they dress up in modern clothes. But for dress-up parties they love to put on their ‘old fashioned’ gowns.

3. What do you think of BeForever?
I think the makeover is really great! I can’t wait for the new outfits for the dolls and I think that the book covers are so pretty! I also love the new name. 

4. Which best friend is your favorite? Why?
To me, Pretty Lilly, my best friend is Gilly, because we’re alike and sisters!

5. What do you like better to blog about, AG news or your own stories/photostories?
I like to post reviews of AG outfits and photostories :)

6. How many dolls do you have?
I have 12 dollie friends!

7. TOTURE QUESTION!! If you had to give away ALL of your dolls except 1, which one would you keep?
Well, that would be Lilly, because she’s my first dollie and she’s very special to me. Don't tell the other dollies!!

8. How is your day going?


It’s going great, because it’s the first official day of my summer vacation!!


I tag everyone who wants to do this tag, because it's a lot of fun!!

A Sunny Summer Photo Shoot

Hi Dollies!

Thank you so much for 100 followers!
After two years of blogging, I finally reached one of my goals.
I enjoy blogging a lot and I also enjoy reading your comments!
Stay tuned for a 100 followers giveaway pretty soon.

In my last post I've shown you the Sunny Isle Outfit! I am in love with it.
I also got the Seaside Tote Set and the Beach Chair Set.
I hope you enjoy this summer photo shoot!


After those long days working at the smoothie stand, Saige needed some time to relax in her new outfit with some delicious summer treats!


I love the basket with a flower printed on it! It's so cute and it will match in our doll house.

The Beach Chair set contains:
- a folded beach chair
- a basket with a flower printed on it
- two pieces of pineapple
- one coconut drink
- one shaved ice
- two fruit kebabs
- a leave shaped plate



I love the new bracelet from the Seaside Tote set!
The Seaside Tote set also contains a lip gloss. I love make up for my dollies and my dolls will be using this a lot!


Here's an overview of the outfit, the tote set and the beach chair set.
The colors are perfect for summer!


In this post I made a review of the Sunny Isle outfit.
I love the beads on the flip flops!


The tote is so detailed! It has rope handles with hot pink straps around them and it has a beautiful flower printed on it.


I clipped the flower from the Sunny Isle outfit on the cute sun hat to cover Saige's eyes…


… and finally, Saige is relaxing.
She even fell asleep during the photo shoot, hihi.

What's your favorite set from this photo shoot?
The Sunny Isle Outfit, the Seaside Tote set or the Beach Chair Set?

Review: Sunny Isle Outfit from AG

Hi Dollies!

So, this weekend I got the Sunny Isle Outfit from AG!
I am so happy with this outfit, because it's the BEST.
Enjoy this review :)


The Sunny Isle Outfit contains:
- a yellow ruffle top with double straps and squiggly embroidery at the neck
- a pair of shorts with a tropical print on them
- a pair of orange flip-flops with some beads on them
- a pink flower hair clip


I personally love this outfit, because it's perfect for summer and you can combine all the pieces separate in different outfits!


Here is a detail of the squiggly embroidery at the neck of the top.


And a detail from the American Girl logo on the end of the top.


The pattern of the shorts is so cute! There are some flowers and palm trees and some other bright objects on them.


The flip flops are amazing! You can combine them with everything :)


Gilly is just hanging out…


She's a TREE HUGGER <3

I definitely recommend this outfit. It's perfect for the summer and the bright colors fit every doll!

I hope you enjoyed this review.
