An amazing Barbie color reveal doll

Hello,my bucket list friends! When I was at Target on Saturday I got a new Barbie color reveal doll! This doll is from a birthday themed series. I was very excited when I saw that a new series was available. The thing I love the most about this series is that the dolls have glitter on them! However that was not the biggest surprise this series had to offer. Unlike all the other color reveal dolls I have,the dolls in this series come with their hair already attached. The other color reveal dolls I have all came with hair that you put on after you revealed your doll or plastic hair. I like this doll’s hair the best and I hope the other series that come after this have the normal Barbie hair like this one does. I can’t wait to see what will be next in the Barbie color reveal line!

Dollar Tree, the mall and new shoes!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Happy Sunday! Another weekend is coming to a close. I thought it would be fun to share my weekend adventures with you so here we go! On Friday I watched the new My Little Pony Movie on Netflix. It was a really good movie and I’m excited to see what adventures will be next for my new favorite ponies. I highly recommend checking out this movie. After work on Friday I went to the Dollar Tree. I got some more acrylic paint and other art supplies. I also got this unicorn play set that I had been wanting I also got some Christmas craft items. I know that they get bought up pretty fast so I decided to get them now. I want to do blogmas again this year and Christmas crafts make for great blogmas posts. Yesterday day I went to the mall. My main goal was to get new shoes because I have a ganglion cyst on my foot and if I wear anything that touches it even soft slippers,it hurts when I walk. I found one pair on shoes in my closet that didn’t touch the cyst. However I got these shoes around 2003 or 2004. They are pink platform slides. They are not the most comfortable on my foot so I needed to get something more comfortable that I could wear until I can get the cyst removed. I started my mall adventure at Target. I didn’t find any shoes there but I did get two Barbie dolls including a new color reveal doll and some foam My Little Pony toys. After Target we went to Famous Footwear and that’s where I found a very comfortable pair of Nike slides. I’m so happy that I now have a pair of shoes that won’t hurt my cyst but are also  comfortable to walk in. While I was at the mall, I went to Claire’s. I always love shopping their sale section. I bought some really cute earrings and a hair bow. My mom and I also got massages. It was a wonderful mall trip. That evening we had game night!I hope all of you are enjoying your weekends!

bird house painting fun!

Hello,my bucket list friends! I’m home from work today because I have a ganglion cyst on my foot that makes it painful to walk. I decided to use some of the extra time I had today to do one of the craft kits that I’ve been wanting to do. I bought this bird house craft kit  at Five Below. In addition to the supplies that were in the kit I used some paint and paint brushes that I already had. I decided to do this craft kit outside to avoid any extra clean up. As soon as I started painting I felt relaxed. I loved picking out the colors and deciding where I wanted to put the.I’m very pleased with my colorful  bird house. I wonder what craft kit I will make next?

Forever a work in progress

Hello,my bucket list friends! There are times when I just need to write whatever comes to mind and this is one of those times. This post is going to be a bit disorganized but I hope you enjoy it anyways.

Here we are on Monday morning  getting ready to start a new week. I  have a lot of things running through my mind right now. Especially reflecting on the weekend. I enjoyed a trip to  Savers and I got to have dinner with Amy. I also made some progress on my room. Reorganizing my room has become a huge project. It’s one of those projects that you wish you could complete in a day but there is much more then a day’s worth of  work to do. At this point I’m hoping by the end of the month I’ll have my room the way I want it. I did go shopping at  Savers this weekend but I also donated four bags full of things from my room. I hope that the items I donated will find a wonderful new home. I found some great items to take home with me while I was shopping at Savers including beanie babies and Barbies. One of my favorite things that I got was a Barbie MP3 player that was still in the package. I also got some really cute dresses! I’m thinking about doing a photo shoot in my new dresses and posting them here. I love watching fashion videos on YouTube and I want to start doing some fashion posts on this blog. Let me know if there are any specific fashion posts you would like to see. Since we are talking about random things at the moments, I’m very excited for the new My Little Pony movie that is coming out on Netflix soon! I’ve also been trying to do more art lately. I recently did a penguin art kit.My big goal for this week is two put two more posts up on Vocal Media.I like putting articles on there but I often get busy with other things.

I hope you enjoyed this random post.

I love my Tie-dye crocs and other things on my mind! :)

Hello, my bucket list friends! Sometimes I have a bunch of things that I  want to write about but I can’t think of a way to put them all together. This is one of those times so I figured I would do one of those posts where I talk about all the things that are on my mind at the moment. Without further introduction let’s jump on in!!

I love my Tie-dye crocs – let’s start off  with the title. I got my second pair of crocs recently. I ordered them from Poshmark. They are used but the seller said she only wore them when she worked at an ice cream store so they are still in pretty good shape. Plus they were a lot less expensive then a new pair of crocs would be. I love the bright colors! I think crocs are my new favorite shoe. I also bought new new purse from the same seller I needed a bigger one and this one she had was absolutely perfect!

I finally won a raffle prize at the Firemen’s BBQ- I have been going been going to this fundraiser since I was a kid. In addition to the BBQ they always have a raffle. I’ve tried many times to win a raffle prize but I never did until Sunday. I ended up winning two prizes a Disney princess doll and a gift certificate to a local toy store. They did have an American Girl doll that I really wanted to win but unfortunately I didn’t but I’m happy that I won something.

I’m getting two America girl dolls!! – Even though I didn’t win the American Girl doll at the raffle,I did win an Ebay auction for two American Girl dolls. I’m so excited for them to get here. They are hopefully gonna be delivered today! When they arrive I will officially have four American Girl dolls.

I’m reorganizing my room – Being a collector can be hard when you only have one room for everything! However I’m currently working on reorganizing and I hope to do a room tour post once I get everything how I want it. I’ve ordered some storage things from Amazon and they should be here this week. I can’t wait to show you my room!

I’m trying to write more on Vocal Media – I started writing on Vocal Media this year and I love it. I have written a few short stories and some articles on there and I would love for you to check them out. You can see my profile HERE

Thanks so much for reading!!
