At The Beach - Part 1

We finally got to editing our photos from the beach! Sadly, we don't have very many; but what we have, we are happy to share!
Kirsten and I read, slept, talked, and looked out the window during the drive. We were super excited because the house that we're going to stay in is like a castle! (Unfortunately, we forgot to take a picture of the house, it really looked like a castle!!) 

It was a long car ride, 7 hours including stops! 

Finally, we were there! Gwen and Megan had arrived before us, and we were so excited to see them!! After lots of hugs and greetings, we all sat down right where we were and began chatting.

"How was your drive?" Kirsten asked. "Pretty good, for 7 hours!" Gwen joked. "How was yours?"

While those two talked, I said to Megan, "Hey, let's go look out of one of those huge windows!"

"Sounds like fun!" she agreed.

It took us a while to clamber up the huge window seat, but we made it eventually. "Aw, too bad it's raining." Megan commented. "Yeah," I said, "I guess the beach will have to wait 'til tomorrow."

Then Gwen and Kirsten joined us. "I hope it's sunny tomorrow!" Gwen said. "I know," Megan replied. "Rain was predicted all week!" We stood there in gloomy silence for a moment.

"Well, since we can't go outside, why don't we go sit on that huge, fancy bench?" suggested Kirsten. 

That also took us a while to get onto, but it was well worth it. "Now this is life" Gwen said, grandly. 

"I feel like Cleopatra," I said; adding, in a high voice. "Servant, another grape!" Everyone giggled. Because of the rain, we stayed inside all day and talked and played games. It was a lot of fun!

Fall Fashion 2013

Hello everyone! Fall is here and school has started (we're homeschooled!), so we're going to show you our personal favorite mix-and-match outfits for fall! 

Mine consists of a bright yellow shirt layered with my puffy red ski vest, a pair of blue jeans, comfy white sneakers, and my watch! I love that the vest and shirt are in fall colors, and the faux fur is so soft! This is perfect for fall because it's comfortable and warm, but easy to play in at the same time!

I pulled my hair back in a simple up-do: twists secured with claw clips!

  
The vest has fun peach-colored buttons and pretty swirls!

My pockets are real!! 


I love these sneakers :)


Alright, now it's Kirsten's turn:
I love this outfit because it is pretty but sporty at the same time! Even though I am more of an indoors person, I love it when Rebecca rakes up the leaves and we run and jump into them! My outfit has a fun pink shirt (with a dog on it!) layered underneath a denim jacket for warmth. My shorts are actually pants rolled up to look like shorts for when I get warm, and my tennis shoes match my shirt! (the camera couldn't capture the color of the shoes, they're actually a lot brighter)


For my hair, I twisted my braids into "Leia buns" and secured them with a claw clip. Then I added a cute cloth belt as a headband!

  My jacket has fun detail stitching and fake pockets. As you can see, there is pink throughout the jacket!

The shorts/pants have lots of pockets and stay rolled up with a little button. :)


My full outfit from the top 

Hope you enjoyed this fall fashion post! Remember, when we reach 50 followers (only 3 more!) we'll have a giveaway!

New TOMS at Daisy Chains!

Hello friends! Christina has made some new TOMS for Daisy Chains! She made three pairs, but one sold already. :)




She decided to trim the shoes with white foam instead of the braided hemp to give them a more sporty/back-to-school look. What do you think? Be sure to stop by Daisy Chains!
~Rebecca and Kirsten
P.S. Don't worry if all you see are sundresses, we're working on making some warmer clothing right now!

Fall Photo Inspiration

Does anyone else out there love Pinterest? Christina sure does, at least, she spends plenty of time on there. :P  We're sorry that we're not consistent posters, but we live a busy life! However, Christina has found a fair amount of pretty doll pictures on Pinterest, and thought you all might also enjoy them, and be inspired!

What We've Won - Our Thoughts

Hello Everyone!! This summer, we have won a surprising amount of giveaways, so we decided to share pictures of our winnings and what we think of them with you!

#1 - outfit from Dolz Dreamzzz - won from Jessie at My Thoughtful Spot


This outfit includes a green and white pillowcase shirt and snug dark brown shorts. (The shoes were won in a giveaway at Our AG Adventures


The shirt - 
Pros: adorable fabric, cute style, very well constructed
Cons: too much fabric, it wants to billow; the fabric is stiff, it doesn't lay nicely.


The shorts-
Pros: fit the doll perfectly, look great with the shirt, very well constructed
Cons: none!


The shoes (we added them to the outfit for fun)-
Pros: cute style
Cons: a little bit long

Overall opinion: we love it! In spite of the fact that the shirt fits a little funny, it is still pretty cute!

#2 - Dress from The Whimsical Doll 2 - won from Our AG Adventures


Pros: cute fabric, very well sewn
Cons: is a wee bit large in the waist

Overall opinion: we're happy with it! We don't especially love this style dress, but with a few accessories, we think it looks perfect!


Here it is with the tie-front shirt and sandals that Christina made for us, we love it this way!

#3 - Outfit from Daydream Doll Boutique - won from Daydream Doll Boutique


This outfit includes a denim jacket, a flowery skirt, and white Mary Janes.


The jacket-
Pros: cute, lots of detail, fairly well constructed
Cons: collar is a bit on the high side, pockets are fake, is originally from Sophia's but the tag was cut off. 


The shoes-
Pros: fit well, well constructed
Cons: are a bit pointy, you can see the lining when the doll is wearing them



The skirt-
Pros: fits well, fairly well constructed
Cons: the elastic is a bit loose, making the gathering uneven when placed on the doll.


Overall opinion: we were disappointed with this outfit. The jacket and the shoes seemed rather cheaply made, and the skirt is very simple. Not that we don't like it, oh no, the separate pieces are very cute! We will probably wear this skirt a ton, and will definitely use the shoes and jacket, so don't get us wrong! We just expected a wee bit higher quality, that's all. :)

#4 - milk and s'mores from AGcessories - won from Danielle at American Girl #1 Fans


Overall opinion: super cute!!! We love the little milk carton, and the s'mores are perfect for camping!

#5 - sweet treats from Minnie Kitchen - won from Grace at It's My Life


Overall opinion: these are so realistic! They are the perfect size for us! We love that the frosting looks as though it were actually spread on!

Wow, we can't believe how much that was! Hopefully you all have won lots of giveaways, too!
Thanks for reading!
