Introducing my friend Margot!

Hey friends!

This past weekend, my friend Margot came over after she got her hair done - she just to have long, curly red hair and she decided to go back to her natural color! She got a short light brown bob and I think it is just the cutest. What do you think?

She is just so pretty! I wish I had freckles like hers.

And here is her favorite necklace - it's an owl! Owls are kind of her thing.

Margot takes her favorite stuffed owl with her almost everywhere! His name is Herman.

Margot's middle name is Stella. Isn't that super cool? My middle name is much more common - Amelia. What's your middle name?

Margot and I can't wait to go on more adventures together! Be sure to greet her in the comments so she feels welcome!

Thank you all reading the blog!

My Girl of the Year Collection


The other day, I was in my room playing with my dolls when I realized - I haven't shared any of my modern dolls with you, my faithful blog readers! I have quite the collection of Girl of the Year (or GOTY) dolls and I'm about to have two more finished very soon. Here they are all in a row... Is the suspense killing you?!

Ta da! Here they are. I have all of the GOTY dolls from 2010 to the present!

I love lining them all up together!

Here's Lanie:

This is McKenna:

And here's a sneak preview of my Marisol, but poor thing is naked because I'm trying to find her meet outfit:

And here's another sneak preview, this time of Jess - she was totally naked when I found her at the thrift store, but I'm hoping to have her outfit soon too:

Well, that's my GOTY collection. Who is your favorite GOTY doll?

Harper & The Almost-Hair-Disaster

A few weeks ago, my best friend Harper came over with her cat, Duchess.

She brought Duchess over to keep my dog, Rory, company. They're almost as good of friends as we are!

I gave Harper a big hug and I noticed something was different about her...

"Oh, Harper!" I exclaimed.

"Your hair! This curl is purple!"

"How did you do it?" I asked.

"It was easy - I did it at my house last week. My dad helped me a little, mostly so I wouldn't mess up the bathroom. Do you like it?" Harper asked.

"I love it! Can we do it to my hair, Harper? I want a light blonde streak, like Anna in Frozen!"

"As long as your mom and dad don't mind, sure we can do it, Charlie!"

"They don't mind!" I assured her, although I had never technically asked them about it before...

Harper got out lots of hair supplies...

...including a funny looking brush and a bowl she filled with what she called bleach, but was blue. I'd never dyed my hair before, so I assumed this was the right kind to use on hair. Harper is, after all, up-to-date on all the latest beauty trends!

"I'm nervous, Harper! What if it looks...funny?"

"It won't look funny, trust me. I've done this a couple of times, I know what I'm doing," she reassured me.

"Let's take off this headband and get started!" Harper exclaimed.

"Right about here looks good...It will be just like Princess Anna's!" Harper said.

Then she started painting my hair with the funny-looking brush...

...and I held the bowl for her so she could reach the bleach easily.

Now that's teamwork!

When Harper pulled out a piece of foil, I began to wonder if we were cooking my hair instead of coloring it...

Harper assured me that it helped the bleach not dry out while we waited for it to change my hair color. How exciting!

"And now, we wait!" Harper said.

So we waited...and waited...and waited for what felt like forever! I was so excited to see how it came out!

"Ta da!" exclaimed Harper. "Do you like it?"

"Oh, Harper..." I said.

I jumped out of my chair. "I love it! High five!"

"We're totally hair streak twins now!" Harper said.
"Right? We are the coolest!" I replied.

And then...

We heard my mom yell, "Charlie! What is that smell? Are you dying your hair?! You better not be without my permission!"

OH NO!!!!

"Forget this!" yelled Harper as she ran out the door. "I'm not getting in trouble again!"

"Oh geeze! Do you like my hair, Mom?"

...So my mom was mad, but she liked how my hair looked, so she let me keep it. But, she did make me promise to ask permission before letting Harper - or anyone else - dye my hair again. Lesson learned!

Have you ever gotten in trouble because you didn't ask permission first?

I hope you enjoyed my story!
