Oh, Adelaide…

11/15/16
Well, our first two contests went off without a hitch, so naturally something had to go wrong by now. Shortly after selling out on tickets for our third show, Ricky invited Sophie, Callie, and I to a party celebrating our first two fabulous successes.

Once I learned it was going to be hosted at the poshest restaurant in town, of course there was no way I’d say no!

Who doesn't love a night out with her best girlfriends?

However, we were all surprised and more than a little sad when Ricky’s older sister, Adelaide, decided to crash the show.

Needless to say, this was NOT the outcome we’d planned for…

Now, it seems, Adelaide will stop at nothing to see Ricky stop pursuing fashion, and that leaves the city with no place to host our shows. But not if I have anything to say about it…

I know there’s got to be a way to win this girl over, and I won’t stop trying until I do!

Coming Up Contests

11/12/16

Wow, so much has happened here in Beaumonde City—in just the past few months, the place has gone from a cute little borough to a booming world of fashion, and I’ve been right there at the middle of it all. I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had the time to so much as think about writing until today. That’s because we’ve just wrapped up the second of Beaumonde’s fashion contests, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the way they each turned out!

When Ricky, Sophie, and Callie first approached me about participating, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. Sophia and Callie were especially surprised when Rickey said we’d be the ones modeling!

But with a little convincing, we were all ready to give it a try.

The most fun, of course, is trying to sell tickets…

Our first contest’s theme was Girly, so I put together ensembles for Sophie, Callie, and of course myself.

Everyone was thrilled with the way things turned out, of course!

Then it was on me to keep counting ticket sales and working to fill that huge arena for a second time.

When I got the email, I ran straight over!

Words just can’t describe the thrill of walking through that door.

Our theme this time was just…cool.

Like, just be cool.

No big deal, right?

Once again, the contest was a huge success, and I’ve heard nothing but praise from fans and customers ever since.

What did I tell you? One day I knew I’d be on that bulletin board!

How Much Can You Do in a Day?

8/24/16

A LOT, it actually turns out! Over the course of my first day in Beaumonde City, I encountered so many wonderful new friends and amazing new experiences, not least of which was the process of entering Beaumonde itself. I’ve been writing and dreaming about it all these months like it was a place I could really up and move to, but instead, it turns out to be a sort of dolls’ world, hidden in the back of a dollhouse that belonged to my grandmother. That’s right—she left me the magical key, and a couple of days ago, I decided to open the door.

Just go with it—after all, I didn’t see any reason not to, and look where it got me!

What I found was a beautiful, perfect little fashion-forward world full of girls just like me—the kind of young women who want to leave their mark on the world around them by expressing themselves through their own unique sense of style. Not least of these is the lovely Sophie…

She’s the one who stepped out of the door onto my side, and offered her hand to help me through.

I had to create a “doll” version of myself first, of course—I’d never have fit otherwise!

It seems my grandmother was at least partly responsible for creating this place—she and Sophie’s grandmother used to be close friends, and, in their time, the head fashionistas of this city. The fashion craze seems to have fallen a bit by the wayside now, but that didn’t stop me from stepping right up to the plate when Sophie asked me to become the new manager of her boutique!

I mean, how could I say no to working in a place like THIS?!?

The door home—to my boutique and my quiet life in Styleville—is always there for me in the back room, in case I want to step out for a minute; I’ve still got the key, of course. But for the time being, I think it’s safe to say I’ll be staying here.

With so much to explore, I’m not sure where to begin…

I just know that I can’t WAIT to go along for the ride.

And to one day become as well-renowned and gorgeous as Callie, current reigning model in this city…SIGH.

But for the time being, it’s my home-away-from-home…

And I love it here!
