dancing into 2017



Hello my lovelies! Here are some pics I took of Isabelle and Casaleah a few weeks ago. I had the idea of playing with ribbons/ ribbon dancing,.. I don't know. I was annoyed because I couldn't find my thin wire and I wanted to put some in the ribbon so I could pose the ribbon. Do you see where I'm going with that. When I eventually find that wire I want to experiment with it and then I'll tell you all how it goes :D For now here are some pics of my ladies dancing with ribbon coz they can!


This reminds me of one of those "WE NEED YOU" Posters and I can't stop laughing every time I see it. Just thought you would want to know that.




You can't un-see it now can you? Ahh it makes me chuckle I have no idea why 

The thought of Isabelle in-listing people to her army.. ok I need to stop. 


Well I hope you enjoyed these photos? Do you sometimes laugh at your own photos? Lol I sure do, all the time! Have a fantastic rest of your day/evening/whatever! :)

Happy Doll Loving

P.S I'm sorry I had to! It's really late and I am just dying.. omg ok goodnight

My musings on Project Mc2 dolls and Liv Dolls..


Hey guys! I am currently sitting inside on a gloomy day on the 3rd day of babysitting my younger sisters. My parents went away for the weekend so I'm playing mum for a few days.. Lol shout out to all mums out there.. It's hard! Haha anyway! For my christmas present my mum got me a Project Mc2 doll! (The one on the left. I bought the one on the right when I to America in 2015.. wow  like nearly 2 years ago... how time flies. 
I renamed them Erin and Andrea. (thanks for the name suggestions on Instagram
I just wanted to share this pic with you and talk about another type of doll that these lovely ladies remind me of, and that's Liv Dolls. I personally don't have any but I really some now! A lovely commenter told me about them and I've been looking on ebay and seen some that tickle my fancy but I just don't want to pay the insane shipping that is double the actual cost of the dolls!

For those of you who don't know my struggle with shipping just read THIS POST
And for those of you who don't have a clue what liv dolls are, this is what they look like

Spin Master Ltd is the Canadian toy manufacturer that produced the Liv dolls from 2009 to 2012.  The line was discontinued and replaced with another line of dolls named 'La Dee Da' that was discontinued in 2014. (taken from Liv Dolls Wiki) I am so bummed that they have been discontinued. I always come late to the party! It happened with My Twinn dolls too. But I should be able to find some on the secondary market. The story of my life.

Here are some things about liv dolls that I think are pretty cool!
  • The dolls had acrylic eyes that look super similar to glass inset eyes which I LOVE! (Hence why I like Project Mc2 dolls too) You don't see this often in 12" dolls.
  • They had up to 14 points of articulation. Now that is fantastic! I just love articulated dolls! 
  • I've also heard that they can change their wigs! Isn't that awesome! 
Those are just some of the aspects of live dolls that have stood out to me. Do you have a liv doll or a project Mc2 doll? I am liking the look of these liv dolls more and more! Do you think I should invest in some? They would be a fun project to clean up! Tell me your thoughts down below
