Barbie is All Dolled Up at Harvey’s

Last Thursday, I attended a special preview event at Harvey’s Seatbeltbags.  They were launching their new Barbie Collection, which will be Limited Edition.  I took my mom with me, since she is a huge fan of Barbie. I didn’t know that the traffic would be so bad that night, because our usual fifteen minute drive took over forty-five minutes. Upon our arrival, we noticed a huge line.  I guess everyone else had the same idea, as there were tons of Harvey’s fans.

We were at the back of the line, if you wanted to know.  It was quite cold outside also, somewhere in the 50′s, which is freezing for Southern California.  My mom kept herself occupied with talking to people about the Laker’s game.  While were in line, one of their employees came around with a basket to collect names for raffle prizes.  We arrived late, and did not know when the raffle would start.  I guess we timed it right, because they started the raffle a few minutes later. I walked around the crowd while we continued to wait.  I was able to capture a photograph of the front store window.

A few minutes after walking around, I heard my name called.  I was shocked and surprised because I had won something in their raffle.  It was probably a good thing that I brought my mom because she is ALWAYS lucky at raffles and drawings.  I went inside the store and claimed my prize, a beautiful Lola Ruffle Tote Rose.  I then realized that my mom was still outside, so I went out and grabbed her.  We probably would have waited at least forty-five more minutes to get inside the door, as it was packed full of people. After we went inside, they gave away one more purse and some Vintage Barbies.  I took a photo of the crowd on the second floor of the business.

Lola Cosmetics was upstairs in the third floor of the business doing makeovers, and they all were taking photos with a Barbie Prop. I saw that there were several people ahead of me, so I didn’t get a chance to have a makeover, but I left with a great lipgloss in a goodie bag.

After going downstairs from visiting Lola Cosmetics, I went looking for my mom. Of course, she was standing near the candy buffet and dessert bar.

I get hungry all over again, just looking at that picture. I loved the chocolate covered Oreos. I think I might have to make some for my very own. I waited a little bit for the crowd to thin out, as I was trying to take some photographs of the new line of purses.

So you are probably wondering, did I buy anything from the new Barbie Collection? Well, I bought  a Barbie Minnie Wristlet & Coin Purse for Angry Kid’s teacher.  Her birthday was last Friday, and she is a huge Barbie fan.  She loved the coin purse.

Isn’t my new purse pretty? And the best part, I won it!

I didn't know that was your mom holding your Lola. I tried to trade her my prize. lol I got the Razzleberry satchel and I usually carry larger bags. I scaled down my junk and am quite happy with the satchel now.
