Karina Nuriyeva

Karina Irekovna Nuriyeva
, formally known as Kanani, is my third doll (after Kit & Rebecca) and first non-historical. I love her so much! I have to admit, she pretty much is my favorite =) 

Her Background: 
Karina is a modern girl; she was born in Kazakhstan to a Russian mother, and a Tartar father of Turkish decent. She has two older brothers that currently study in university (one in Moscow, the other in Astana), and so she's the only girl and the baby of the family. Karina loves shopping, and her family's influential financial situation allows her all the fabulous clothes she desires. Although occasionally she can be a little empty-headed, Karina is a genius when it comes to maths, and has amazing problem-solving skills. She loves adventures and traveling; She has even gone to Dominican Republic with us! Karina really strands apart from my other dolls, she is very unique. Her personality is optimistic and glamorous; she loves nothing more than visiting her babushka in St. Petersburg. In her free time, Karina enjoys relaxing, shopping and taking care of herself. Her favorite outfit is the Sweet Savannah dress (shown pictured on top left) 

Karina's Adventure:
In August of 2012, Karina was able to join my family on a vacation to La Romana, Dominican Republic. Despite her fear of water, she was able to join us on our snorkeling adventures; we visited the beach, and explored around. Overall, it was a fun vacation filled with many exciting experiences. Karina was able to experience a complete different culture and took a whole bunch of photos! 

What do you think of the photos?
Karina absolutely loves taking photos! Almost everywhere we went, we had to take a couple shots. She just looks so completely gorgeous, & I'm so glad that I was able to get her last year.

While Karina loves the beach, warm weather & the sun, her favorite season is winter; it is reminiscent of her native Kostanay. It's only November, but Karina is already planning her snowy adventures! She's all dressed up and ready for the next snowfall, and she's even more ready for our holiday, Novi Gode, or New Years. It is Karina's favorite holiday! It is also our version of Christmas, when Ded Maroz delivers presents, and we decorate a tree, listen to Russian music and countdown to the New Year's!
Karina can't wait =)
