Buying a Barbie color reveal doll on Poshmark

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s official I’m obsessed with Barbie color reveal dolls! There are quite a few series of these dolls. Some of them were released before I started buying them. So I went on Poshmark and bought a doll from an older series. This was a weather series where each doll represents a different kind of weather. I got the rain doll. She came with a beautiful rainbow wig. I’m really happy with the doll I got. I wonder which doll I will reveal next.

Strawberry funnel cake Frappuccino review

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for food review! When I heard about the new Strawberry funnel cake Frappuccino at Starbucks I new I just had to try it! I’m a huge strawberry fan so I was excited to try this strawberry treat. Before I get into my review I want to say that I did order this drink with almond milk instead of the default whole milk. When I first took a sip of this drink it tasted like a maple flavor. It took me a second to realize that flavor was funnel cake part of the drink. There was strawberry flavor through out the drink but the maple flavor was the strongest flavor that I tasted. I did enjoy this drink and I finished all of it. It was definitely worth trying but the Carmel Frappuccino is still my favorite!

Weekend highlights

Hello,my bucket list friends! This weekend was pretty great so I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you. I hope all of you had a great weekend as well!

Going to Target – Friday after work I went to Target. I got a lot of fun things including a small Barbie color reveal doll,a Barbie doll that came with a bathtub, shoe liners to wear with my Crocs, a My Little pony coloring book, bath bombs and two art kits.

Bath bombs – I used two bath bombs this weekend. One on Friday night and one on Sunday. The one I used Friday night was one of the ones that had gotten a Target that day. It was a little mermaid themed bath bomb and came with a cute pendent inside it. The bath bomb I used on Sunday was also from Target but I got it on a different shopping trip. It’s was an ice cream cone shaped bath bomb and it had a cute squishy toy hidden inside. This bath bomb was very similar to another bath bomb that I had gotten at Target before except for it was in the shape of a gummy bear.

Art ! – I did one of the art kits that I got at Target. It was make your own necklace kit where you painted a large butterfly. It came with three colors and it was very simple. I enjoyed this fun and quick project.

Succulents – I finally got around to planning the succulents that I already had. I put all three of them in one pot and I like the way they look. I hope this becomes a new hobby for me.

Celebrating mother’s Day – Sunday was mother’s Day and we went up to Napa to celebrate. We had a good lunch at a cute restaurant that had porch swings outside.

Walks – I was able to go on a couple walks this weekend. It’s amazing how something so simple can be so relaxing and enjoyable and healthy.

Another Goodwill adventure

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday I visited one of my favorite places,the Goodwill! Every other Thursday I go with my dad to drop off food at our church. The food is used to help feed the homeless. While my dad gets the food at the store I like to go to the Goodwill nextdoor and see what I can find. On this shopping trip the first thing I found was a bag of horse toys .They were so cute, I just had to take them home. My other finds were a Disney purse, a Build a Bear cat, a Barbie doll still in the box and a snow globe. I’m happy with my finds. What have you found at thrift stores lately?

Barbie color reveal peel !

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s no secret that I love the Barbie color reveal toys. Recently I decided to get a color reveal product that I had not gotten before. I got a large Barbie color reveal set. This set had a lot more accessories then the dolls that come in the single tubes do. The biggest difference was that with this set is you don’t use water to reveal the doll.You peel off the coating around the doll to see what she looks like. Another difference with this set is you know what doll you are getting.There is a mermaid, unicorn, and fairy set in this series. Each one has its own doll so you know what you are getting when you buy the set. I got the mermaid set because that was the only one available when I was at Target. I did like revealing this doll better then the other sets because no water meant less mess. This set also came with a mermaid pet that you peeled to reveal. I really hope I can get the unicorn set one of these days!

Light Heart bookclub discussion March 2021

Hello, my bucket list friends! I am very happy to say that I finally finished March’s book club book. Our book for March was the chocolate rose by Helen Perelman. This book is part of the candy fairies series. I have enjoyed reading these books a lot. I can’t wait to discuss it with you. As always there is just one more thing. The following post contains major plot points ( Spoilers ) for the book . If you want to read the book and haven’t yet, I suggest you wait to read this post until you have finished the book. Now, let’s get into our discussion!

My favorite part of the book – there was a lot of great parts in this book including a singing unicorn. But my favorite part of the book has to be when Cocoa’s cousin mocha surprises her with a visit while she was in her garden. Not only does she visit her but she gives her encouragement about her garden. I loved reading this happiness-filled part of the book.

My lest favorite part of the book – My least favorite part of the book is when the stage was destroyed. The fairies had worked so hard to build it and it was sad to see all their hard work ruined. However I was happy to see how it all worked out in the end.

Activities – in this book Cocoa Make some beautiful paintings. That end up being used as decoration for the new talent show stage. So I thought the perfect activity to to go along with this book would be to make some paintings of my own. The first painting I did was a candy inspired flower. In the book Cocoa grows a chocolate rose in her garden. I like chocolate but my favorite candy is probably hard candies and lollipops so I made a hard candy inspired flower. For my second drawing I drew some more flowers with clouds over them raining colorful rain. I have a lot of fun doing this activity hopefully I read more books that have painting in them.

Thanks for reading !

Is this how celebrities eat ?

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’ve been meaning to write this post all week. On Sunday I had the best dinner of my life! My family and I went to this restaurant called Grand View. As the name suggests the views are something to write home about! Everything about this restaurant is beautiful. Now, the food somehow managed to be just as good as the veiws. After going over our choices,we decided to do the tasting menu. At first I didn’t think I’d be able to do it because I’m a vegetarian. However the amazing staff members told me that it would be no problem to do the tasting menu for a vegetarian. I was excited to see what food I would get to try. Each course that they brought was a wonderful surprise. This was the fanciest food that I have ever had. It was so amazing! The tasting menu allowed me to try things that I normally wouldn’t order like beats. I felt like an A- list celebrity that night. I couldn’t help but think that this is what celebrities must eat like!

Bucket list #294 Go shopping at the Gilroy Outlets

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m super happy to say that yesterday I crossed another item off my bucket list. The last time I went to the outlets,a lot of the stores were closed. However this time the stores I wanted to visit were open.My mom and I started our outlet adventure with the Disney store outlet. I’ve been to the Disney store before but not the outlet. They had good deals on a lot of items including some items from the theme parks. My favorite thing that I got was a mouse ear headband that was summer themed. After that we went to Claire’s. This location had a pretty large clearance section I enjoyed looking through all the items especially the ones on sale. I was able to find some really great accessories and one of the best curly straws I’ve ever seen in my life! After those two stores we went to go visit the California welcomeCenter again. I’ve been here once before and I love looking through all the travel brochures that they have. I had a lot of fun crossing this item off my list and I hope to go back to the Gilroy outlets sometime.
