Review of Tenney’s Spotlight Outfit

Hey guys! I’ve been promising this review for a while, and since Tenney is being retired, I thought this would be the perfect time to do it (so you can purchase this adorable outfit before it’s gone)!

(Pictures from American Girl)


This outfit is so precious, and when I saw it in Dallas I knew I should buy it. It looks like a country rockstar, Taylor Swift-esque sort of ensemble – if that makes any sense.


The shirt is BEAUTIFUL – maybe my favorite part of the entire outfit. My only complaint is that anything with Velcro sticks to this shirt, and when you unattach it, the lace will come apart a little in that spot. Make sure you always close the Velcro, because the shirt will stick to itself too. But other than that, it’s perfect. I love 3/4 sleeves like these, and like the ones on Grace’s baking outfit.


(There was no individual picture of the skirt). The skirt is beautiful, just like the shirt, and it also looks great with Grace’s baking outfit (I guess the outfits are similar?) because it’s the same color as the leggings from that set. I love the glitter on it. It’s a bit short, though, and it would be nice if it was about one or two inches longer.


The boots are VERY sparkly, as you can see. They seem sort of Our Generation and not AG, however, but that’s my only complaint about them. You would think that with this outfit, some nice, pink flats would be in order, but no. The cowgirl boots are awesome.


The headband is super cute – you can see the stitching on the stars, though, and it does look kind of cheaply made. But it does tie the outfit together, and it’s a great 4th-of-July accessory, too.

Overall rating: 4/5 stars

I highly, highly recommend this outfit, and since they’re retiring all of Tenney’s collection (as well as Z’s and Gabriela’s) on 12/31/18, I suggest you buy it now if you want it. You can click here to do that. (No, this post is not sponsored.)

Have a great rest of your week, guys! I’ll see you back here on Monday.

And . . . I’m Back!

Helloooooo, world! I’m ecstatic to be back on my blog! It’s been a great hiatus, I got the break I needed and accomplished a TON of stuff. Here’s a list, so you don’t think I was sitting around binge-watching Stranger Things. (Kidding, I don’t watch that show.)

I . . .

  • Helped out at a language-immersion camp
  • Volunteered at not one, but two Vacation Bible Schools!
  • Reorganized my room
  • Color-coordinated my bookshelf (inspired by Sam from Redhead With A Book)
  • Went on an awesome camping trip with my friends
  • Worked on a collab with another awesome blogger (more on that later!)
  • Did quite a bit of babysitting
  • Welcomed two new additions to my family (no, they’re not babies. Again, more on that later).

So, as you can see, I was quite busy. I feel like it’s been months, instead of less than three weeks.

This summer has been awesome so far. There are a lot of fun things happened up here in Alaska for me, and I’m not going to be any less busy than I was during my hiatus. But I just couldn’t leave you guys for very long. 🙂

Here’s a sneak peak of epic posts coming up soon:

  • Two collab posts
  • Lindsey’s Revenge (A Photostory)
  • Part 3 of The Trials of Tessa (I have learned through trying and failing to do photoseries that I am absolutely awful at them)
  • Review of Tenney’s Spotlight Outfit
  • Family Pictures (A Photostory)
  • A Summer Photoshoot, Take 2 (A Photoshoot, obviously)
  • And much, much more! (Now, if only I could find my post calendar . . .)

Like I said at the beginning of this post, I’m soooo happy to be back! I’ve missed you guys. 🙂

Another Q&A . . .

Me to my grandma: I need to blog.

Me to myself: Maybe I should title this post “What Should I Blog About?”

Genius self to me: A Q&A A Q&A A Q&A!!!

So. I obviously HAD to listen to myself and do another Q&A. This time around, though, instead of the questions being Alaskan themed, the questions can be about anything.

Well, I say anything, but . . .

  • Please keep your questions appropriate
  • The questions must not be personal, such as inquiries as to my real name, birthday, or Social Security number
  • You have until Monday, May 28 (Memorial Day) to question away!

Have fun with this, guys. I love Q&A’s, in case you couldn’t tell. The weirder the questions, the better!

A sneak-peek at upcoming blog posts:

  • A Summer Photoshoot, Round 2
  • Lindsey’s Revenge (A Photostory)
  • Review of Tenney’s Spotlight Outfit
  • In Which I FINALLY Post The Trials of Tessa, Part 3
  • And more, which are yet to be revealed!

See ya later!

5 Things You Can Relate To If You Have An AG Doll/AG Doll Blog/AG Doll YT Channel

Hey guys, what’s up? I am taking a break today from Travels With Grace to bring you a post anyone with an AG doll can relate to. I have seen this idea a lot on YouTube but I know not everyone is allowed to watch it, so enjoy!

#1: Aren’t you a little OLD for dolls?

Well, lots of people could say the same thing about your stuffed animal obsession. But I don’t, because there’s nothing wrong with liking toys once you’re over the age of twelve. My great-aunt loves AG! And playing with dolls and photographing them are two entirely different things, so don’t criticize. (And even if you still play with your dolls, kudos to you for not feeling the need to grow up too fast!)

#2: Your dolls look like they’re staring into my soul . . . 

Okay, what is with this? AG dolls are the most realistic dolls on the market, and I think they’re totally cute! It’s just an unfortunate stereotype that has come from horror movies featuring Chucky The Doll. (By the way, I wouldn’t recommend watching that film.)

#3: Why would anyone spend so much money on a doll?

I feel like this is just rude. It’s basically saying “Why would you spend so much money on a house/car/piece of jewelry?” It’s my money. I earned it, and I will spend it as I please.

#4: You have a DOLL blog/YT channel? I’ve never heard of those . . . 

I get this one ALL the time. Apparently, no one has heard that popular YT channels like Mixiepixie7 get ASKED by AG to do GOTY sneak peek videos . . . or invited to do meetups at the AG stores. It’s a real thing, people.

#5: And those are a thing?

Um . . . yes. Trust me. Google “AG doll blog,” or “AG stopmotion,” and you will get thousands of results.

Can you relate to any of these?

One of the Most Amazing Posts I’ve Ever Read

3,125 people died this last hour. A total of 75,000 people are going to die today. 75,000 people are going to die tomorrow. And the next day. And the day after that. How many of them are going to Heaven? How many of them are going to hell? There is no time to waste. Jesus…
