Hello! I hope you’re having a lovely day! Recently I went to the beach on vacation and Kanani tagged along!
(sorry for the bad quality!) Here is a picture of Kanani all ready to go!
The hotel I was staying at had some beautiful scenery, so I decided to take a photoshoot of Kanani. I hope you enjoy!
This sign is so colorful!😍
Have you ever been to the beach? What is your favorite vacation spot? Let me know in the comments! Have a spectacular day!
Hello! How are you doing today? My name is Kanani Akina, and I got tagged by the amazing Maryellen from All Doll'd Up to do the Ag Q&A Tag! Thank you so much Maryellen! I was super surprised that she nominated me, and can’t wait for you guys to get to know me better!
Shall we begin?
1. Which one of your sisters do you not get along with? And why?
Well, because I’m the oldest and take care of my sisters, I have to get along with all of them. However, when Saige was on that tap-dancing phase(when I say that I mean all day, everyday)all of us were a little annoyed.
2. Do you have any doll friends outside of your family?
I recently had a really nice conversation with Janet. She is so sweet!
3. What’s something that your human does that annoys you?
When she shakes me to see how loose my limbs are. I mean, I can still stand up, now give it a rest!
4. What’s your favorite movie?
Sing all the way!
5. What’s your most favorite toy that you own?
I do love my Hula Hoop!
McKenna: It’s true! She’ll spend hours outside with that thing!
Hey, this is my interview! Goodbye!
I had a blast! Thanks again, Maryellen!
-Gabby from All American Girl
-Isabelle from Ag and Me
-Michelle from The American Girl Spot
-Crystal from American Girls in Alaska
1. Which one of your siblings do you get along best with?
2. What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
3. What genre of music do you listen to the most?
4. If you could meet any movie character, who would you meet?
5. If you could time travel what time would you go to and why?
I hope y'all liked my post! Have a great day!
Over and out,
Jewel is hosting a giveaway on Doll Notebook! She is generously giving away a beautiful Cinderella dress for 18inch dolls. You should totally enter it! If you do, good luck!
“It is I, your favorite Simply AG sister, Caroline!” *cue the applause*
“Today I will be teaching you how to look your best during Summer.”
“But first, I will need a model. Please welcome.........”
“Miss Kanani Akina!”
“Are you ready Kanani?”
“Then let’s get on with the show!”
“First, let’s tackle the shirt. I would do a cute tank top. I recommend light/pastel colors, because they’re so much fun!”
“Now it’s time for the bottoms. If you have a flowy shirt, like Kanani’s, I would pair it with shorts, not a skort. Denim jean shorts are sooo in right now, you can never go wrong with these babies!”
“Shoes time! Because there is yellow in the shirt, I am going to go with these yellow and orange sandals.”
“Done, done, and done!”
“BUT WAIT! People, do not click out of this post because we are not-I repeat, we are NOT done!”
“If you have a printed neckline, I strongly suggest banning necklaces so your outfit doesn’t look to busy.”
“However, improvising is always an option. Take this headband, for an example.”
“Just wrap it around your wrist twice and bam! A bracelet.”
“Finally, lets get on to the hairstyle.”
“Make sure to brush out your hair to remove tangles first.”
“You can also spray your hair with a little bit of water to help tame crazy strands.”
“Its usually depressingly hot in the Summer so you might wanna wear your hair up...just a suggestion. Except, of course, when you have a really good style in with your hair down, like I have in now. That’s when I will make an exception.” ;)
“Today, I am making a little braid at the top of Kanani’s head.”
“After that, just make a regular braid and weave that tiny braid into it.”
“Secure the style with an elastic. Feel free to add a clip to the bottom of the braid, like Kanani.”
“Ta da! I did an amazing job! Kanani, darling, no need to thank me. The look on your face will be thanks enough.”
“Well, I hope you guys are now notified on how to look absolutely awesome in the Summer.”
Wow. I should have known something like this would happen when I let Caroline take over today's post. Oh well, I hope you guys still liked it. If you did, don't forget to leave a comment and a follow! Have a good day!
Hey guys, what’s up? I recently got nominated by Jewel to do the Blue Sky Tag. Thank you so much!
What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?
Salted Carmel all the way!
Do you prefer to chill with others or by yourself?
Are you afraid of heights?
When I have a harness on or if there’s a railing, no if I’m not 100 feet up. If I don’t have anything to keep me from falling...definitely. *winces at the thought*
What are your 2 favorite movies?
2. All of the Minion/Despicable Me movies
I know that was two, but I still can’t forget about the Star Wars and Harry Potter movies!
What is your favorite TV show?
Cooks Vs. Cons! It’s on Food Network.
Read or write?
Jewel don’t do this to me!!! Uhhh... no comment?XD
What song have you been listening to lately?
Better When I’m Dancing by Meghan Trainor from The Peanuts Movie. I know it’s old, but it’s so upbeat and fun!
Do you have a hidden talent?
I’m a good poet!
Are most of your friends around your own age, younger, or older?
I’d say around my own age. However, my friend and I both love little kids. We always give them hugs and say hi to them!
How do you feel about Star Wars?
I feel that George Lucas was a genius. I love everything, from the Wookiees to the E-Woks. From the Millineum Falcon to Darth Vador. Luke and Han and Leia, oh my!
Do you like cats or dogs better, and why?
Dogs, no doubt. Actually, I’m allergic to both but not as much with dogs as I am with cats. Also, cats kiss and claw at you. Dogs give you kisses and shake your hand. After all, they are man’s best friend! ;)

A long time ago on this day, our country gained independence from Great Britain. Here is a patriotic photoshoot of Grace. Enjoy!
The Star Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key
Oh say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilights last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave,
O’ver the land
of the free
and the home of the brave?
OOh, this is probably my favorite photoshoot I have done yet! Grace was a great model:) Have a terrific day!

Have a super day!
Hey guys, what’s up? Today I, McKenna Brooks, am going to teach you an important life lesson-how to properly fake being sick in 9 easy steps.
Let’s get started!
The sun shines through your window, waking you up.
Look out the window. You really don't want to go to school today.
As you roll out of bed, a thought occurs in your mind.
Hey, why not fake being sick today?
First, take a hair dryer. Blow some of that hot air onto your forehead so it feels like you're burning up.
Try to look as miserable as you possibly can. Moan and call out your sister’s name.
One of your sisters, probably the eldest, will come in to see what’s wrong.
You cough and sniffle. “I think I’m sick.” Your sibling feels your forehead and a look of horror flashes across her face. You see folks, that's why we use the blow dryer!
As your sister runs to call your school to tell them you'll be home that day, give yourself a pat on the back. Congratulations! You must be a very good actress/actor ;)
Once the school is notified, she brings you some breakfast in bed. Complain that only pancakes will make you feel better.
Now is the time your siblings leave for school. They begrudgingly mumble a goodbye to you. Smile innocently and wave.
One of them is bound to suspiciously come over and tell you they know you're not really ill.
WAIT! Relax! Don't panic. You MUST not give in. Cry, offended that she/he would think so low of you. Wave your sibling out of the room, while bawling your eyes out. Now this takes some real acting!
Flabbergasted, your sibling will flee the room, muttering under their breath. Step 6 complete!
Even though your siblings are gone, you can't party just yet. Casually read a magazine or a book.
Now your older sibling will mosey in. They will tell you: "McKenna, I'm going out to get groceries. Hang in there." Tell him/her politely to have a great trip and wait until the garage door closes.
*Shake it off, Shake it off yeah yeah, Shake it off, Shake it off*
"I forgot my wallet."
The moral of the story is: When you fake being sick, always make sure your sibling has their wallet. Well...see ya next time!
I hope you enjoyed this photostory! It was so much fun to make. If you like it, please comment and follow. Bye!
Hi! First of all, I am sooo sorry I didn't post last week. I had a fever and had to rest. Anyway, here's my post now! American Girl had a huge new summer release. Today I’ll be showing you all of the new items and my opinions on them. Let’s get started!
-All of these images were found on Americangirl.com
-I will not be including all of the accesories and the pet items.
-I will not be including Wellie Wishers, Bitty Babies, and girl clothes/items.
This doll looks stunning! Her green eyes go well with her blond hair.
This doll looks like Kanani, don't you think? Is it a coincidence? Was it on purpose? Either way, she is beautiful! I won't be getting her because I have Kanani, but I believe she would be a wonderful substitute for people who don't have her.
I think it's lovely that AG put a new skin tone in the Truly Me line! I also love that they gave her a Josefina face mold.
I love this! However, AG could have put a little bit more effort into it. They could have at least put a ladder! The pillow on the bottom bunk is adorable, though XD
I know a bunch of kids would like this set. Me? Considering I’ve never touched a controller in my life? Uhh....the chair’s swell! I know you can hook it up to music!
When girls play with this set, they will learn to be happy...and healthy! XD I like this. AG has made ice cream stands, but never garden stands! What a cool idea!
This is cute. They could’ve included popcorn though! I’m glad that AG didn’t make it like, $50.
This is way overpriced. Those bows are sooo cute, though! They would look adorable in Caroline’s hair!
This set is so cool! I think it’s a really creative idea.
The mini chopsticks are adorable 😍
Yay! American Girl hasn’t made a car in a while, I’m glad they finally did! It’s cool that you can control it. It looks very realistic. If it wasn’t totally out of my price range, this would be added to my wishlist :p
This looks like a fun set. The pet door doesn’t make sense to me, but I still think it’s adorable ;)
This is cool, but it could use some pizzaz! *jazz hands* I definitely don’t think it should be $30.
I know some younger audiences would like this. It’s a nice idea 👍
This set is WAY overpriced. Not counting that, it looks like a swell set. The flower headband is pretty!
This is a cute outfit! The popsicle flannel is really sweet, and the pants really pop! Plus, I love me some headbands❤️
This outfit is so cute!!!!! I love the shoes and the shirt! The hat is also really awesome and I can always use an extra pair of jean shorts:)
I can imagine McKenna exploring in this outfitXD I love the camoflouge! But why is jungle camo the most famous? I guess we will never know...
I do not do cheerleading, so I’m not positive, but I think this is what cheerleaders actually wear. Again, I love the bow❤️
This is not my favorite. The top and the leggings kind of look like a jumpsuit to me, when the purple jacket is tied on. The pattern is nice!
McKenna would love this! I like the pattern on the shirt.
Im happy AG made such cute basketball shoes! This outfit looks realistic, I know lots of people will like that.
SO SPARKLY! I really do love this outfit. It has a creative, jazzy vibe to it.
I love all of the pieces in this set. There is so many, yet American Girl managed to pull it off. I especially like the blazer and the shirt!
I was disappointed when I saw this dress. All of the GOTYs have a fancy dress in their collection, and I was looking forward to Luciana’s. When I saw it, I was flabbergasted. Why all that black? Oh well, at least the headband is cute.
Awww, Nanea looks like a little baby doll in this dress! This outfit is nice, you can tell AG went for a bow theme.
This looks so authentic! The boots are cool and the flannel is fun.
I love the purple pattern on the shoes! This outfit is cool beans!
The pants look super cool to me.
LOL! This is crazy cute! I’ve never had sushi, but this pajama set makes me want to try it!
Well, that concludes my review post. Do you like any of these items? Let me know in the comments and don't forget to follow! Have a splendid day! Also, what kind of posts would you like me to do? I would love to hear some suggestions!
Hi! Yesterday my mom and I went to Kohl’s and I saw the American Girl Section. I noticed an outfit I've had my eye on for a while: the Cute & Comfy Lounge Set. However, I didn't know if I wanted to spend $20 on it. My mom told me she would buy it for me as a reward for getting good grades in school. I immediately agreed! I thought I would review it for you guys. Let's do this!
The Cute & Comfy Lounge Set for 18-inch dolls comes with three pieces- a tunic, pants, and a headband. Personally, I wish the outfit had shoes, but I understand that it doesn't because of the theme of the outfit.
The headband has a red, purple, and pink star pattern on it. It also has a really cute tie on it that looks like a bow.
This tunic is adorable. It has a cowl-neck and is pink. It is baggy, but just the right amount. On the bottom right, it says AmericanGirl. The tunic is hot pink.
The pants have the same red, pink, and purple star pattern on them, like the headband. They are so soft!
The pockets aren't real, but that is not a huge problem to me.
Overall, this outfit is spectacular and I would recommend it to anyone. I give it a 10/10! They have it on sale at American Girl.com for only $14! Now, on to a mini photoshoot.
Have a good day! I hope you found my review helpful!
