Astrid's Fall Favorites

Today, Astrid has a post for you, so I'll let her take it from here.

Hey there! This is Astrid. Lots of you have been requesting me, so uh... here I am! You know what else is here? Autumn! I'm super pumped for the fall season, so I'm here to talk about what's so so great about fall! 

First off, just that it's fall! A wonderful season of cool breezes, colorful leaves, and all the following wonderful things!

Sweaters! Sweaters are certainly a fall necessity. They're cozy and cute! I love having a big assortment of sweaters ready, if you can't tell. And I want more! I've been eyeing this sweater from AG ever since it was released. The whole outfit is a bit odd, but the individual pieces are darling!

Next up... BOOTS! Boots are great, and you must have them for fall. Ankle boots, tall boots, rain boots, Hunter boots, Ugg boots, all the boots! I'm particularly fond of ankle booties for autumn. I SO wish they made these awesome boots in doll sizes! Of course, Tenley says the heal is way too tall for a 14-year-old such as myself, and she says they are much too expensive. A girl can dream, right?

Pumpkin spice break! Pumpkin spice is amazing. You MUST drink it 24/7. Unless you're on a diet, because a tall Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappaccino is 365 calories! That's a lot! Heh- I'm not a weight-watcher though. I shall enjoy my slim teen days for long as possible. These drinks are perfect, they scream, "FALL IS HERE!" I love the new Chile Mocha frap too. Yum! With touches of cinnamon and the classic pumpkin-pie taste, these drinks get you in the mood for sweaters, hot cocoa, and chilly winds. 
*I am not trying to make people stop drinking frapaccinos at all or saying you should watch your weight. "I shall enjoy my slim teen days for as long as possible." was just a little joke from Astrid's POV and I hope no one takes it seriously or finds it offensive. All sizes are beautiful, and if you are on a diet, that's your choice and it's your body. I didn't mean to poke fun at anyone, it was just a joke towards how much sugar there is in this "coffee". *

"Astrid... what are you doing?"
"Oh, Callista! Right on time to show off the season's hairdos!"
"What now?"

Of course I had to get the girl with the longest hair of the house to show off what fall's hairdos look like... braids! Braids are all fall, and they just give a super classic look.

Double braids are sweet too!

And- Tenley here. A quick interaction you can do is tell us in your comment, whose hair is the best? Is it Callista's Rapunzel-like silky hair, or Astrid's explosion of color tucked under the blonde?

Ok, it's Astrid back. And pssst: my hair is better! ;)
Now, I have maple syrup. Why? Because it has maple leaves on the front. Maple leaves are the worldwide symbol of fall, seriously! These leaves are everywhere! Having some cute little jars like these out can give your kitchen a fall touch. That's what I did to our kitchen!

Really anything orange will do. Orange just gives you feelings of fall- and maybe even hints at Halloween approaching! Speaking of which...

Stay tuned for an upcoming post, in which I talk about all the fabulous necessities of Halloween!
Here, I'll hand the keyboard over to Tenley for the goodbye.

Thanks for reading this post! You guys requested Astrid, so you got Astrid! :) Hope you enjoyed, and don't forget to comment: Who has the best hair, Astrid, or Callista?

Till next time,

The Mystery Of The Year - GOTY 2017!

     You know what's super strange? We know practically nothing about the GOTY 2017! By this time last year, we had photos of Lea's mini doll, her name, and several outfits and accessories! AG seems to have lots of secrets right now! The few things I have heard are just rumors with little to no proof.
     So, today I'd like to do something GOTY themed!I'm going to be doing the Girl Of The Year 2017 tag. I got tagged by a couple people, and they're several versions of this tag, but they're all pretty similar. I picked the one from Happy House Of AG to do. :)

What should her name be?
Something cool... like Raven or Astrid. Maybe a more unique name; instead of "Mckenna", "Isabelle", "Grace", let's get a "Amethyst", "Ornina", or "Serenity". Or Tenley!

How old is she?
13-14. They have had way too many 9 year olds. They make me feel bad for being older and liking dolls! they need to better represent their audience, and get a older doll! At least 12!

What are her hobbies?
Just some ideas: Writing, scrapbooking, karate, crocheting, crafting, swimming, dragon slaying,  NO MORE BALLERINAS/DANCERS! (dance is great, but not every single year.)

Where does she live?
Alaska would be interesting!

Does she have any siblings?
I think it'd be cool if the GOTY's mom was expecting a baby!

Nope. No friends. Let's make GOTY 2017 a total introvert! Ha, just kidding. She can have friends, but only a few really really good ones.

A bearded dragon, or a huge aquarium! Maybe a bird? GOATS! So many possibilities!

What school does she go to?
Doesn't matter.

I think the GOTY 2017 should have a very distinct style that doesn't change throughout her collection. Not super girly though, Isabelle took that. Either a super-trendy style, or a boho-chic! Maybe emo-ish? Idk, just something interesting! My favorite idea is boho. She could have...
Meet outfit: Flower crown, flowy white blouse, creme leggings, fringe sandals,
Fancy outfit: Creme maxi-dress with a swoop back, brown leather sandals, brown braided belt, another flower crown,
PJ's: Some 70's themed, flowery matching tank and pants.
Casual outfit: short overalls with small rips, short brown ankle-boots, loose white crop-top under overalls, ANOTHER flowercrown,
Ooh and some cool earrings. Like, cuffs or something?


  • A pixie cut would be so so awesome! I love long hair... but she'd be cute!
  • A new hazel or blue color eye.
  • A new, more spread out freckle pattern
  • What face mold do you think?
  • I guess light skin tone since I really would like freckles, but IDK, because I want a DOC too!
So, that was fun! Do you like my ideas for the GOTY 2017 or no? Do you think this idea will ever be realistic for AG? Share your opinion in a comment!
