Description

Once upon a time, there were two like-minded goddesses: Caitlin and Dani brought together by fate to live their best lives. The two met by a combination of serendipity and magic, became the fastest of friends, and moved into a real-life Dollhouse. The two have a passion for storytelling, and the popular blog and Instagram, Once Upon a Dollhouse, was launched in 2016 to chronicle their best friend adventures. Caitlin + Dani live their lives to the fullest and are passionate about beauty, fashio, music, travel, wellness and all things that sparkle. The Dolls will be blogging, instagram-ing, facebooking, TikTok-ing and pinning every little adventure that incorporates these things. The Dolls' ultimate goal is to inspire you to become your healthiest and happiest self.
