All dolls have secret lives as we all know…here’s a peek into one of them!
Let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than a stale sandwich! Here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa our staff takes turns one day a week and brings in lunch for the other girls. It breaks up lunch-packing monotony and gives us all more variety. Since there are five of us here; myself, Vera, Beatrice, Madge and Daffy, we have five lunches covered with only one day to figure it out on our own. Friday’s are Daffy’s day to provide and though she tries hard, it’s hit or miss to say the least!
Today, Daffy’s lunch menu consisted of Devils Food chicken spread on rye bread, cantaloupe slices and Dr. Pepper. For desert, Hostess Snow Balls, you know, the hot pink coconut marshmallow cakes with the creamy middle. Poor Daffy, I hope she finds a husband who can cook…for his sake! Besides the clashing tastes of our lunchtime bounty, the rye bread was stale. Not because it wasn’t fresh, but the wax paper opened up and the sandwiches got to air out since the early morning hours.
Why am I rattling on about stale sandwiches you may wonder? Because it leads me to Carol, my next spa client! Carol’s a real doll, not to mention our local Tupperware lady. As a matter of fact it was Carol who offered me escape from adding Daffy’s snowball snack cake to the churning ingredients fighting in my stomach from lunch!
Carol came rushing into the spa to set up for the Tupperware party slated for 7:00 that evening. Why is there going to be a Tupperware party at Pink Bubbles you may wonder? Because frankly, I wanted those adorable hot pink drinking cups with the embedded silver glitter I was offered as a hostess gift! As a bonus, I also thought it would be a great way to meet the ladies of the area, you know, the ones who just might make an appointment with us in the future!
“Tupperware parties, the only place a lady is allowed to “burp” in public! ”
With only a few hours to set up, Carol really needed to reserve some time in my chair as well! Always well-groomed, I’ve never seen her in such a state of disarray. Running a house and business on the side can really take its toll apparently! She was desperate for a quick wash, tease & set before the party and luckily for her, I’m also in the business of “keepin’ it fresh!” The harried hostess with a head for business needed that same head transformed, but quick. Let’s face it, she wasn’t going to make a very good impression, not to mention many sales with her customers looking this way!
She started off with a relaxing Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body. Refreshed, she had her Bubble hairdo washed, set and styled. I also freshened up her make-up by touching up her brows, eyes and beautiful full lips. Madge gave her a Mani & Pedi in exchange for a generous mixing bowl discount!
The girls here on the staff are staying after work to attend Carol’s Party. We’ve all decided to chip in and surprise Daffy with her first set of Tupperware, the sandwich keepers! Hopefully it won’t be long before Carol gets them in!
By the way, here’s Carol now! Let’s get the party started!
I think it’s safe to whip out your sales book now Carol, you look as fresh as last nights lemon pie, stored in the pink Tupperware pie caddy found on page 13 of this months catalog!
Please enjoy Carol’s before & after photos below!
Carol is now ready to take orders! She invested some extra time before her party to enjoy a little pampering! She started with our Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for face & Body. Her hair was washed, styled and set. Special attention was given to her eyes, giving them a less “startled” look! Luscious lips were the final touch to get the party started!
Thank you Carol and Cathy for visiting us here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa! Come back again real soon!

All dolls have secret lives as we all know…here’s a peek into one of them!
Who doesn’t love to travel? I know I do! Of course, I rarely escape the pink stucco walls of the spa these days, we’ve been so busy. That’s why I always enjoy a good travel adventure shared by a fortunate client who actually gets to go somewhere exotic. By the time I spray on their final coat of Aqua-Net, I feel like I actually tagged along on their trip! Why, this month alone, I vicariously went to Miami Beach, Catalina Island, Japan and with the latest tale from my newest client Bobbie – Jamaica, without ever leaving my station!
I’ll admit when I first met her, I was taken aback a little by her beatnik style. But clearly not as much as Vera our receptionist, who couldn’t hide her disapproving looks as she took her in from head to toe. “Your twelve o’clock is here.” she announced bringing her in, “Please have a seat dear. You’ll be here a while! Would you prefer coffee or tea?” “I’ll take coffee, thank you!” replied our guest. Always willing to pitch in, especially on hectic days like today, Vera called out “Daffy! Bring coffee to station one!” and returned to her desk.
Now we all know vacations don’t always go as planned, but my new friend Bobbie’s adventure was indeed a trip for the books! According to her, she won the two-week Jamaican holiday as a contestant on “Let’s Make A Deal!”
Who would have thought dressing up as a giant carrot and being selected by Monty Hall to make a deal would end up bringing a girl such drama and adventure! Remembering back to that fateful day, she says she’s very happy she traded the new avocado green refrigerator for mystery door number three where the lovely Carol Merrill was standing!
“Let’s Make A Deal!” A place where girls dressed as carrots can end up in a pickle!
According to Bobbie, things went awry the moment she landed on the island of Jamaica. First, her luggage was nowhere to be found in the baggage claim. Later she was told apologetically, her new set of Samsonite “Silhouette” luggage (again courtesy of Monty Hall and Carol Merrill) containing all her lovely clothes was on its way to Canada! (BTW, who could have been so careless as to let a thing like that happen?!!)
In addition, adding to her dilemma, most of her $500.00 prize money was gone as well as she had tucked it behind the mirror of the stylish make-up case. With only $17.14 found at the bottom of her purse and a luckily paid in advance hotel room to her name, Bobbie decided just to make the best of things. So with the tenacity of Scarlett O’Hara, determined not to let that ole’ Civil War get her down, she set off to enjoy her holiday!
As you can imagine, her dough didn’t last long and with thirteen days to go and her luggage still remaining M.I.A., she took matters into her own hands. Walking along the shore, she was drawn to the rhythmic sound of a reggae band playing for the tourists. She noticed their large gumbie drum leaning alone against the tree and decided to give it a try! Musically gifted, she blended smoothly into their tempo. After several numbers, the bands lead singer, a nice fellow named Bob, made her an honorary member of his band “The Wailers” by giving her an equal share of the tips left by the appreciative listeners. She sure did need the money and was grateful to have it! They became great friends and she met them there every afternoon to play for the remainder of her stay!
She had a ball but said she may have taken things a bit too far by adopting the wild hair style of her band mates. Sunshine, salt, sand, and plenty of humidity for two weeks straight created the “do” seen below for me to untangle!
When she made it back home, her shocked mother made an appointment and drove her straight to the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa where she spent the afternoon with me, my rat-tail comb and a good conditioner! I really enjoyed listening to Bobbie’s Jamaican tales and hope she’ll return to the spa sometime soon. With her gorgeous new looks, I’m sure many more adventures await her!
Please enjoy her before & after photos below!
Bobbie says “Never be afraid to “go for broke!” When life hands you an avocado green refrigerator, don’t play it safe, trade it for the mystery behind door number three…you just may have the time of your life!”
Bobbie really needed a vacation from her vacation! She started off with a relaxing Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body. Some unfortunate facial stains were successfully treated and lightened, definitely improved, don’t you agree! With a face-full of refreshed make-up, coupled with her rescued mane of dark locks, I’d say she’s as beautiful a vision as any Caribbean sunset!
