Giveaway for the 2015 GOTY Grace

American Girl Grace Doll Giveaway

Over the past year, American Girl Specialty Boutiques have been opening up in a number of Indigo Kids stores across Canada. Now a brand new location is open in the heart of downtown Toronto in the Toronto Eaton Centre.

Located in Indigo Kids on the 3rd floor of the Eaton Centre, the American Girl specialty boutique is a not to be missed experience while in Toronto. The whole Indigo Kids section of the store has undergone a massive renovation with new sections for Lego, Imaginative Play, Books and more.

What I love about the new American Girl Specialty Boutique is that it feels a lot like a separate store. There is a separate entrance to the Boutique and once you pass through the door, it feels like you’ve been transported to one of the larger stores in Chicago or New York.
The American Girl Specialty Boutique has enough selection to keep your American Girl fan busy for a long time. The centre of the Boutique is a very cool hair salon where American Girl dolls are treated to braids, ribbons and some very intricate hair designs. Your American Girl doll also has the option of getting her ears pierced.

We brought along Ursula, Charlie’s American Girl doll who is over 3 years old now. She left the Boutique looking brand new and with a selection of earrings for her newly pierced ears.
The American Girl in the Toronto Eaton Centre is now open daily. Check holiday schedule before visiting.

Stuff about yesterday and the more :)

hey everyone! Just wanted to tell you where i went yesterday. I went to a awesome amusement park! They had tons of rides, but my favorites where the alpine slide, (which my little sister loved) a huge water slide, (which, sadly was closed) a tall up and down slide that has a huge puddle at the end, (btw when i went on it for the last time, i got drenched:) and a super long chair lift that went to the top of a mountain (and when you get to the top, you had a gorgeous view)
Sadly i wasn't able to take my camera along so i didn't get any pictures :(

Ok, first of all i want to show you a random picture of where my mom and sister got coffee yesterday morning. (i thought it was really pretty)

                            Now for some pictures of my souvenir i got at the titanic museum.
Felicity's feet in the back round.

i thought the design and sparkle are so pretty
Then this is a paper that they give you before you go in the museum. It tells you who you could be on the titanic. Then it tells you why they were going across the ocean to America, and it tells some of their life story. Then while you're in the museum you find out if your person dies or not. My person survived. It was really cool because my little sister's person on her paper was my little sister on my paper :)
This is the back of the paper. To entertain the kids while they waited in line to get into the museum.
