Happy Belated March!

Well, it’s been a long week. I know it’s not over yet, but…it’s still been a long week. And by the way, happy March! I think spring is finally in the air, although that little warm pocket we got a couple days back is long gone. Still, I think the worst of the winter might be gone? And yet I can’t bring myself to get rid of my beautiful Christmas blog photo. :P

So, for those of you who are wondering what’s up with Amori, I still haven’t been able to get back into it. I did, however, get some inspiration to write a couple of scenes for it, but they’re more for the ending. It’s bad in the way that it’ll be a while before I reach that point in the story, but it’s also good because it gives me something to shoot for. And man, am I excited about how it’s gonna end. XD

I’m debating whether to share the story and how, because copyright can be an issue and material can get stolen. It’s just something that I’m thinking about for when the time comes, but since it’s a little ways off yet, I probably don’t need to worry about it. But while I’m on the subject, here’s an edit I put together for Amori:

you_didn't_see_what_i_saw

This is something she says in the story that really embodies the problems in her relationship with one of the other characters. That there’s a certain level of distrust, or resentment, really. Because there are things she’s been through that he can’t understand, but also vice versa, which allows them to have a strong relationship despite their differences.

I feel silly. Today was the first time I’ve played around with exporting a Pages document as an ePub document. In case you’re like me and have no clue what that means, I’ll tell you. If you want to be able to read your story in iBooks, and be able to change the text size, make bookmarks, etc., ePub format works. But it is restrictive – it has to be so flexible that you loose some formatting. But I’m going to be keeping it in mind for the future. :)

Oh, yeah! Forgot to mention…I got the Frozen Fever dolls in the mail the other day! So exciting. I don’t have any pictures to post at the moment, but you can check out my Instagram to see my beautiful new girl. :)

Go Go

Hello. This is another quick update. About dolls.

My sister (who loves Elsa) has split the cost with me, and we’ve ordered the Frozen Fever doll set! So exciting. Will definitely post when they arrive. But even though this is pretty awesome, I have to admit…this will be my fourth Anna doll. And so it’s not so awesome as being able to get Go Go, who still isn’t back in stock. The young woman at my local Disney Store was very confident that she’d be back in, but I’ve been checking almost every day for a while. Still no sign.

And judging from past experience, I think I’ve missed my chance. That Big Hero 6 obsessed part of me thinks everyone ought to sign some kind of petition for Disney to make more of these dolls that we love, and would undoubtedly sell out fast – maybe even faster than the first batch. I mean, come on…they’re still in stock in the UK store! How crazy is that? I’ll never understand how Disney works, but I just think that a company that big really ought to be on the ball about this kind of thing. It’s very disappointing, especially because they’re shooting themselves in the foot.

Okay, end rant! Sorry about that. I just had to get it out of my system. I mean, Go Go is one of my favorite Disney characters! I’ve got so many dolls…and not her. It makes no sense. :(

Anyway, I might do a review for the new dolls, but you can be sure if I get my hands on Go Go, you’ll be the first to know. ;)

Frozen Fever Items in the Disney Store!!!

Hello, peeps! I’m doing a quick update to tell you about that Disney Store update. Frozen Fever arriving in March, they’ve released some cool new stuff in their Frozen store. Namely, new classic dolls:

I know, right? For $34.95, you can get these two together in their new outfits from Frozen Fever. I’m so pleased! They each have detailed, beautiful clothes, and might I point out…Elsa’s shoes? She finally has those ice beauties she wore throughout Frozen! Of course, Anna is just adorable. I love her little vest. Overall, I’m just really happy to see a unique new set that’s so affordable.

But still no sign of Honey Lemon and Go Go dolls in the Big Hero 6 store. I’m so sad – and actually quite worried that they’ve sold out completely and won’t be back in stock…ever. Like with the adorable talking Vanellope doll they released a few years back. You can’t find her new in the box for less than like…eighty dollars. It’s so frustrating, because I love that character and can’t get her. I’m so upset that it might be the same with Go Go now! :(

But I’ll keep my eyes open and let you know when/if there’s a change. :)

Progress on LOL + BH6 Items in the Disney Store!

Hey, peeps! I’ve been a total lazy bones about writing on Amori lately, but I’ve been cooking up some new ideas for it, and for another story I’m hoping to start after Amori is finished. So never fear! I just did a brainstorming session with my sister, and am going to be traveling back to District 13 again, before taking a trip to Scotland, possibly, for my next novel. And, that’s not literal, by the way. :P

The dolls have been working hard, though! Despite the trials in their little lives, they’ve not failed to keep posting about it on Likeness of Life! Head over there now if you’d like to catch up with the latest goings-on in the doll community! XD

Also, I must admit to stalking the Disney Store for Go Go Tomago dolls. I check the Big Hero 6 page just about every day, waiting for when I’ll be able to snatch my new favorite character. Though they haven’t gotten her in, they do have more of the plush toys, Funko Pops, and action figures than normal. Click here to check it out! Maybe this means they’ll be getting more and more stuff in stock as the release date of the Blu-ray approaches? I believe it’s coming out February 24th, to be exact. YAY!! I’m so excited. ^.^

Anyway, thanks for stopping by, and I hope to be coming back with some more interesting news pretty soon here! :D

New LE Frozen Dolls!!!

Hello, everyone. Quick update for all my fellow doll-lovers! There’s a certain update that happened this morning on the Disney Store Blog, about some certain dolls that everyone in the world probably wants, and only 13,500 people are getting them. First, let me introduce a teen 17″ Elsa (edition size 5,000):

LE Elsa Doll - Frozen

And a 17″ Anna, wearing her outfit from the end of Frozen (edition size 5,000):

LE Anna Doll - Frozen

And 18″ Kristoff, also wearing his outfit from the end of Frozen (edition size 3,500):

LE Kristoff Doll - Frozen

They’re all retailing for $119.95, and going up for sale at midnight on March 4th (although I didn’t see where it says what time zone). They’re beautifully detailed and articulated, and what I wouldn’t give to have a Kristoff that can actually embrace his Anna. But I must say, I’m a little disappointed that Anna and Elsa aren’t wearing their new beautiful dresses from Frozen Fever:

These dolls will probably be gone in under an hour, as well, so I rather doubt I’ll be able to get them, even if I had a couple hundred dollars to spend on dolls. But for those of you who’d like to check them out, here’s the link!

Tiana or no Tiana?

I’ve been wanting a Tiana doll from the Disney Store for.ev.er.

So, the Disney Store has this beautiful Tiana doll. Who comes with all sorts of accessories. And her hair comes in an awesome style. And she’s marked down 39% off. And I want her.
