Life Lessons With Kaya #1 : Money

Hi everyone, it's Kaya , and it's time for Life Lessons With Kaya !
I   , Kaya , am collecting bits and pieces about life from my experiences and sharing them with you here !
I might be a doll , but we know quite a lot . What do you think we do when you leave the house ? We don't just sit there ! Today , I'm addressing a problem that a lot of us have : Money 
One time , we went the the American Girl Place. I saw an outfit I wanted so bad. When I checked my wallet , it was empty ! Hopefully these tips help you save up money for something you want , and you don't end up like I did !











I know some things are hard to resist , but you must ask yourself "do I need it ?" . Tell yourself when you get the thing you are saving up for , all of this will be worth it. Even if you really want it , let yourself know you can live without it. When you finally get you item , you'll be glad you didn't get it. The ore money you save , the closer you are to getting it.


Your parents might pay you to do chores around the house.Even though this might be hard work, just keep your item in mind the whole time . If you parents won't pay you for chores, you can try mowing lawns , bake sales , lemonade stands  , etcetera. If you can't do any of these things or you don't want to , you can set up Google Adsense . If you use blogger and have a blog, it is an option. Google Adsense puts ads on your blog that are related to what your blog is about. You are paid for having the ads on you blog. The more viewers you have, the more money you can earn. Google Adsense is an easy way to earn money.


If your crafty and you're sure some of your  crafts are worthy , you can set up an esty. Make sure you have your parents permission. On esty , you can sell some of your crafts and get money. Making the crafts might take a while , but always make them to the best of your ability.


On special occasions such as holidays and birthdays, ask for money instead of gifts. This way , you can save up money for your item. If it is your birthday, ask for the item for your birthday . Ask someone like your parents to get you the item if it is expensive.

Shopping is one thing that will throw you off course when saving up. You might see something and want to spend the hard earned money on that. While shopping, control yourself and don't buy anything  unless you need it (ex: school supplies). 


Use coupons !!' Browse the Internet , magazines, catalogs , etcetera for coupons for what you are buying. If you are going to the mall or a certain store bring some coupons from that store with you. You might want to buy something and don't want to spend too much money . Coupons are a great ways to save on everything. With the money you save with coupons , you may be able to buy your item ! Stores and store websites are great places to find coupons for a specific store. Getting them from official places like that are ways to know the coupon will be real and valid.



Giving you awesome readers some tips was really fun ! I hope you like these Life Lessons. Comment if you would like this series to continue or if you have a suggestion for next week's lesson .
Well , that's all for now blog -readers ! See you next week !

I was featured on Doll Diaries !

My first craft was featured on Doll Diaries ! This is the best one month Blogiversary gift ever ! I never thought that  a little craft I made would be featured on Doll Diaries. I am so happy and so honored that they thought my craft was good enough for their site ! Thanks everyone , and Goodnight from NY !

A cheap Doll Fun Find

I was at target today , and I found this great find.


A pack of three mini tic tac containers with tic tacs ! Could you believe these are only 64 cents? These are little big for 18 inch dolls , but they still look pretty great ! 

Here is the packaging.
Even though they are a little big , they are an excellent deal for only 64 cents !
Now your doll can always have fresh breath !

Giveaway at AmericanGirlFan

American Girl Fan is having a giveaway. It has lovely spring colors. I wish you all the best of luck !!
Here's the giveaway.

Shopkins !!!

I love Shopkins ! I recently purchased some , and they're amazing. They fit perfectly into Mini doll play. They come with shopping bags and baskets which are great for dolls  ( minis are the best )of many different brands. They work well for small figurines such as Calico Critters. I'm sorry it is so late , but better late then never ! I will do the review soon. 

You can easily incorporate these into your minis ' world.  Here are some photos of how I did I it.

The living room.

The kitchen.

The bathroom.

A doll movie theater !
With these Shopkins , there are so many possibilities. I think you should all get these. They are very useful for mine s and can be furniture and food. They have a whole bakery section , so you mini Grace would love it !
You can also set it up as a mini doll supermarket or store.
The shopping bags look great on them.

I bought the mega 20 pack , and it was worth my money.  Your dolls can use these in many different ways. If you make a stop-motion these are perfect. These can also be your big dolls toys.You can collect them and they are great quality. If you have Shopkins, show me the creative things you do with them ! Send me a pic on Google+ and I will show it on this blog. I hope you enjoyed this quick brush-over , and stay the amazing people you are !
 






 

The Adventures of Mini Josefina

Before we get to Josefina , I would like to apologize for not updating earlier today. I wa scoring chores to try to earn some money to buy something Doll related. I'm either going to buy a La Newborn baby doll , or a mini AG doll. Since I won't be getting a full sized Grace doll , I think I will get a mini. Josie will have a friend her size .I know a lot of dolls I want I will never be able to buy, so I just buy minis . So a mini Grace or a La Newborn ? They are both 25$. 
Yesterday m we drove for an hour and half to get to Universoul Circus. I decided to bring little Josie with me to share in the adventures. Here are some photos I got.


This was when we were driving :)


Sorry there blurry , their lights weren't helping .
Hopefully I will be able to post soon . A shout out to Hope , who always 1+ my post .  I love your blog so much Hope !  Anyways , BYES !!!!!!!






Some more baby dolls

After browsing ToysRus , I finally came to the conclusion thatI love baby dolls. I found some lifelike baby dolls for only 25$ . I'm debating between one of these or a baby alive.
I found two different races , African American and White. I can't save the pictures of them , so here is the link.
La Newborn Baby Dolls



Does this doll ..........

Does this baby doll look real ? I couldn't figure out myself, so I'm hoping you'll help me !






Does it look like a real baby ? A lot ? A little ? Not at all ?
P.S. It is 25$ at ToysRus

Should I buy this baby or a baby alive ?

How to make doll Brownies and candle

This craft is not the best , but some of you wanted one , so here it is !


Here is an easy craft on how to make doll brownies, you will need :
An eraser
Coloring supplies 
Glue
Paper 
Scissors 
Pencil


Trace the eraser on to paper.
Cut it out.

Glue it on the eraser.
Color it.
