Meet Gigi!

Hi!

Meet GigiA few weeks ago, my wonderful mother surprised me with a very special gift…a Ginger Breadhouse Ever After High doll! I immediately fell in love with her cute glasses and fluffy pink hair, and began brainstorming nicknames. After a couple hours of scouring name sites and collaborating with Bella, I came up with the perfect name: Gigi! Or Gigi the Genius, as Bri has deemed her. She loves science, baking (she and Cupid are going to be whipping up all sorts of yummy treats!), old movies, chocolate, fashion, and wants to be a Food Scientist when she grows up!

Gigi the Genius and I couldn’t wait to take some sweet-themed photos…

Meet Kitty!

Hi!

Kitty Cheshire was immediately became one of my favorite characters when I first heard about EAH a couple of years ago. I loved everything about her – the purple hair, the purple dress, the purple tights. She was purr-fect! So you can imagine my excitement when I first saw pictures of her doll back in October. Unfortunately, her release was delayed for awhile because of some production mishaps, and I was left waiting and waiting. A couple weeks ago, several announcements appeared on Ever After High blogs that Kitty Cheshire was in stock on Amazon.com. But then, when I finally got on the stock page – she was no longer available! (Cue evil music!) Luckily, my obsessive internet skills made sure that I was ready the next time she was in stock. And here she is…

Kitty-Full ShotKitty Cheshire! Isn’t she adorable? Unlike most of my other EAH dolls, (besides Cupid, of course) Kitty’s name is staying the same as her original one, although I did add the middle name Katrina. (Kitty Kat Cheshire–isn’t that cute?) I’ve decided that she enjoys plays, mystery novels, knitting, cats, hanging upside down, writing, spy shows, and Kit-Kats! Oh, and purple of course. :)

Kitty and I couldn’t wait to have a photo shoot (with the help of a few very special friends)…

Kitty's KittyKitty immediately became best buds with this cute little black cat. She named him Wonderland!

Kitty and the CatsWonderland couldn’t wait to introduce Kitty to all his friends! (Kitty and the Cats–sounds like a band name, doesn’t it?)

Kitty and RubyeRubye was eagerly awaiting the arrival of her bestie too! She and Kitty couldn’t wait to take some pictures together.

Kitty on FenceAnd of course, Kitty had to go take her photo on the fence outside, as is EAH tradition. Despite the cold, she still managed to hang upside down. :)

Have a great rest of your week,

Lulu and Kitty

Holiday Roundup + Meet Dani!

Hi!

Can you believe it’s already the end of December 2014? The year seems to have gone by so fast! Bella and I are so proud of how much our blog has grown, and we are thankful for each and every one of our fabulous readers. Before we head into the new year, Bella and I couldn’t help but squeeze in one last holiday-themed post about the thoughtful doll-related gifts we received this year.

Pippaloo Cookies1 >> Bella and I were each given a set of doll cookies from one of our favorite Etsy shops, Pippaloo! I received Bizcochito cookies for my Josefina doll, and Bella got holiday sugar cookies for her entire doll family to share. It always amazes us how realistic the clay treats end up looking :)

Julie Clothes2 >> Bella and I were also each given one of Julie’s new Beforever outfits. My doll Gabby absolutely adores her faux fur purple coat and Julie looks oh-so cute in her new holiday dress. Though, I do have a weakness for anything purple…

EAH Dolls in Dresses3 >> I was lucky enough to receive these amazing dresses (as well as a couple others) for my EAH dolls from this Etsy shop and this one. I think they fit each of the EAH girls’ personalities perfectly!

We also received a few other things that I didn’t get to take pictures of for this post, but not to worry! You’ll be seeing them in the very near future :)

Bri's Live Blog  Before we get to this post’s biggest surprise, I have one more thing to add (Promise)! Tomorrow, in honor of New Year’s Eve, Bri will be doing a special live blog post! Here are the details:

  • On December 31 (Tomorrow!) Bri will be having a New Year’s Eve party with her friends, and will be blogging an extra special post in honor of the event here on the Doll Mag blog. The post will be updated throughout the evening at every half hour. So, every 30 minutes, be sure to refresh your page to see what Bri is up to.
  • The event starts tomorrow evening at 8:30 PM E.T. and will run until 12:00 AM.
  • From 8:30 PM E.T. till 10:00 PM E.T. Bri will be online and responding to your comments! Sounds fun, right?

Alright, now the big surprise of this post… meet my new EAH doll, Dani!

WavingI had been wanting one of the Ashlynn Ella Ever After High dolls for awhile, so it was such a pleasant surprise to discover her Mirror Beach doll under my family’s tree on Christmas morning. She came out of her box right away and I immediately fell in love with this cutie! In my traditional EAH style, I renamed her – this time deciding on Daniella, or Dani for short! Coming up with her personality and favorites took a bit of time (and lots of help from Bella!), but I finally decided that she enjoys iced tea, surfing, volleyball, photography, and playing the trumpet. She’s an adorable doll and became best friends with the rest of the EAH dolls in no time!

Dani and I picked out a pretty ocean-themed background for her introductory photo shoot…

Dani (Fullshot)Here’s a full-shot of her lovely ensemble! That bathing suit is adorable.

Close-UpDoesn’t Dani look gorgeous? She’s ready for her close-up!

SunglassesI love the color palette of her bathing suit!

SandAfter taking a dive with the fish, Dani relaxed on the warm sand :)

Dani and I then headed outside, but first she changed into a more seasonally appropriate dress…

FenceFirst we took a few pictures at my favorite spot: the fence!

Half-ProfileHer hair is so shiny! (It even managed to escape the curse of box-hair!)

Did you receive any doll-related goodies this holiday season?
