Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas Curvy "Platinum Pop"

Hi everyone! How are you? Lately, I haven't been in the mood for blogging or even posting on my social media. I've been having problems at my job with a new schedule that is horrible and my coworker's bad mood. Besides that, we've been busy with some family appointments that we had, so that left me with less time for blogging. But nevermind, I don't want to bore you with my problems, so let's talk about something more fun: dolls!


Today I'm going to review Barbie Fashionista #63 "Platinum Pop" , from this year's Fashionistas collection. This doll has the new curvy body and, since the first time I saw her, I new I wanted her in my collection.

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionista "Fancy in Flowers"

Hello everyone! I swear I try to blog almost everyday, but stuff and life happen and I never find the time. I still have a few dolls to review before the new semester starts and, as usual, a ton of crafts projects that I haven't even started. Today I finally have found some time to write this review, even though I took the photos over a week ago.


The doll in today's review is Barbie Fashionista "Fancy in Flowers". I liked this doll because of her big hair and her really dark skin, but a couple of things could be better. Let's start.

Mini Review: Funko Pop! Princess Leia and Faye Valentine

Hi everyone! How are you? No, I haven't made up my mind yet about those dolly names that I'm supposed to choose. Mr. Monster and I have been assembling some Ikea furniture and re-organizing the doll/craft/study room. I have some doll reviews to do before the new course stars, and also I have a new sewing machine that I haven't used yet. I'd love to do a doll couch, so I can display my Barbie dolls in their new shelves. 


Today I'm just going to do a quick review of two of my last Funko Pop! figurines: Faye Valentine and Princess Leia. I bought them a while ago and Mr. Monster was a little very impacient to open them, so we can display them with the rest of our Funko collection. So here we go.

Name that doll

Hello everyone! How are you? July is about to end and I wonder what I have done with my time. I still have lots of things to do before the new course starts!


Today's post is a little bit different. If you have been reading this blog for a while, you may have noticed that, at the end of my posts, I usually ask for name suggesstions for my dolls. So, I've decided to put all my unamed dolls together in this post and try to find a name for them. Some I have already a name or two in mind, but some I have no ideas. Let's start!

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas "B-Fabulous"

Hi everyone! Are you enjoying your summer? This week I'm on holidays, but instead of playing with my dolls, I've been really busy doing other stuff, like assembling some Ikea furniture and doing paper work. Also, this weekend Mr. Monster and I are going to a music festival, so no doll reviews this Sunday!


The doll of today's review is Barbie Fashionista #34 B-Fabulous, from the 2016 Barbie Fashionistas. This doll came out when the new bodies were released, even though she uses the original body. Like So Sporty or Pretty in Paisley, she comes with 2 extra outfits.

Shop Review: Atelierni Sasha on Etsy

Hello everyone.

I haven't posted in a few days because I didn't feel like doing so. When I get home from work sometimes I'm very tired and last week I just felt like lying on the sofa and watch Doctor Who. However, a couple of days ago I received something that I ordered from Etsy back in June. My Atelierni Sasha dresses! 


For a long time I wanted to buy from Atelieni Sasha, and finally this June I made up my mind and picked two dresses. In all honesty, I was on the fence between writting this review or not, because I had spoken with Sasha before; but I think that credit has to be given when credit is due. So, let's start!

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas Petite "Sweet for Silver" (Kira)

Hi everyone!

I haven't been in the mood for writting during a couple of days due to a little dissappointment with a Barbie doll. Long story short, I bought one of the new Barbie Look dolls from Amazon when she got back to a "fair" price, but when I received her, she was wonky. I bought another one that didn't arrive on Saturday, as I expected, and I had to wait until Monday. The new doll doesn't look THAT wonky, but I can see her face is not simmetrical. Between the whole wonky situation and the delay in the second doll, I'm not as excited about her as I should be. I posted a pic of the wonky eyed one on Twitter and tagged Mattel, still no comment. Anyway, at least I have a replacement doll and the wrong one is going back to the Amazon warehouse.


 Luckily, the doll in today's review is not wonky at all. Please everyone, welcome Barbie Fashionistas number 62 "Sweet for Silver", better know by some fans as Kira. Kira was Barbie's asian friend and she was featured in many Barbie lines back in the 80s and 90s. I'm not 100% sure, but I think that the name Kira appeared during the late 80s or early 90s, and previously Barbie asian friends had other names like Miko or Dana. However, at some point, Kira was pulled out of the Barbie line and many fans were waiting for her comeback. And here she is!
