Doll review: Barbie Fashionistas "L.A. Girl"

Hello everyone! Thanks everyone for your lovely comments on my last post. I don't usually get many comments, so I was quite surprised.

I took a small break from crafting in order to do another doll review. This time I'm going to review the L.A Girl, from 2015 Barbie Fashionistas line, also known as the blonde with shaved hair. I wanted this doll since the very first moment I saw her, but I was waiting to see if she got an articulated version, but because that doesn't seem to be happening, I decided to buy her anyway.

Working on some doll furniture

Hello everyone!

One of my projects for this summer is to build a doll size cafe so I can have an scenario for my pictures and probably doll stories. I decided to start with doing a table and some chairs that could also be used in other scenarios. The table was the easiest one, so I started with that.

I got this idea from one of My Froggy Stuff videos, but I don't remember which, so probably if you go to her Youtube Channel you'll find it.

I started by drawing some circles on a box, like a cereal box. I used an enamel can to trace them, as it seemed to have a perfect size.

Doll review: Barbie Style Grace

Hello my dear doll lovers! What have you been up to? I wish I had started this post earlier, but this past two nights I've been putting some order in my doll room. I'm not done yet, but at least all my Monster High shoes are organized.

Today I'm going to review Grace, from the Barbie Style doll line. I've liked Grace since the So In Style dolls came out, but those were never sold in my country. Also, I like the concept of the Style doll line, at least the first two waves, because the dolls came fully articulated and the fashions were more realistic. Unfortunately, this particular doll, as well as the two Nikki dolls in this line, was never sold in Spain, so I had to get this one at Amazon.com. 

Barbie Style Grace Review

At first, Grace was introduced in the So In Style line, which focused on Grace and her friends Trichelle, Kara, Chandra and Marisa. I really like that line, and it was too bad it wasn't sold here, so I really hope those characters get featured in future lines. However, in the Barbie Life In The Dreamhouse show, Grace is introduced as a very smart, science loving girl who becomes good friends with Barbie.

Doll review: Iris Clops I Love Fashion

Hello there!

Now that the course is over, I can start working on this blog again. I'll try to make the most of this summer and post as much as I can. I'm also planning to do more diverse posts, because I feel that last year I focused too much on reviews, but that will be in future posts, as today is time for a review. This time I'm going to review Iris Clops, from the Monster High I love fashion (or I <3 Fashion) line. It's been ages since I did my last Monster High review!

Monster High Iris Clops doll review

Iris Clops is a former Monster High background character that came into the spotlight in 2014 when she was released in a two-doll pack (along with Manny Taur) as a San Diego ComiCon exclusive. I must confess that I wasn't completely drawn to her when I saw her SDCC version, but this one catched my attention. Also, this one was much easier to get than a SDCC exclusive!

Doll review: Barbie fashionistas curvy "Sweetheart Stripes"

Hello doll lovers! What have you been up to?

It's been a busy week for me, as I had two papers due for next week, so I had to spend tons of time studying and researching information. But finally, I manage to finish those projects on time, so I could get some time to do a small doll review.

Today I'm going to review one of the new Barbie Fashionistas: Sweetheart Stripes. This doll has the new curvy body, and you might now at this point how excited I am about this new bodies, so it's no big surprise I really wanted to get my hands on this one. I have already written a review about the petite body "Crazy for Coral", and you can read it here in case you missed it.

Doll review: Barbie Made to Move (A.A.)

Hello there! What have you been up to? After a week of holidays is time to go back to work, so that means I probably won't be able to post anything in a while. However, I just opened a doll themed Twitter account and you can send me any messages there.

Today, for my 50th blog post, I'm going to review one of the new Made to Move Barbie dolls, the most poseable Barbie. This dolls have more points of articulation, allowing the dolls to pose better.



So Mattel keeps on removing articulations from many of their playline dolls, like the Fashionistas or the Style Luxe dolls, but then they come up with this new body that has 22 points articulations. Anyways, I think that this dolls are an smart move because now collectors have new and affordable body donators. But anyway, let's start the review!

Doll review: Barbie Fashionistas Petite "Crazy for Coral"

Hello my dear doll lovers! How's April going?

I'm trying to stick to my "one post per month" plan, so I thought that this week would be perfect, because I'm on holidays and I have more spare time. 

Today I'm going to review my first Barbie doll: Crazy for Coral from the Barbie Fashionistas doll line. This doll is from the latest fashionista wave, that incorporates three new body shapes. I talked about this new bodies earlier on this blog, you can read my opinion here. Crazy for Coral has one of those new bodies, known as "petite", so that means she's shorter than regular Barbies.
