{2018} Currently Vol. 6


Hello, everyone! I'd like you to meet Midge, the newest addition to my Dollireum. She is Barbie's best friend from Wisconsin, and this particular doll is from the Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse series. I loved that show so much I watched all episodes in Netflix in less than a week! I wish they can produce more episodes! Midge wasn't really in my list of dream dolls to have but when I saw her for sale in one of the Facebook groups I belong to I just couldn't resist. I just love her hair and freckles!

I took her out of her box last Saturday and had fun taking her photos wearing the original dress she came with as well as the other blue dress included in her package. You may check my Dollireum Instagram account for photos of her and of my other dolls. ♡


This was definitely one of the most restful and relaxed weekends I've had in a while. We spent it taking photos of some of my dolls and organizing their clothes and shoes, and I realized that my Barbies have more shoes than I do. Heh.

My boyfriend also got a Nintendo Switch over the weekend. I am not a gamer by any means, but Mario Kart was loads of fun.


Mario Kart's theme was stuck in my head for two days! (ꐦ ´͈ ᗨ `͈ )  Here are the other things I've been up to.

CURRENTLY

READING

I'm almost done with Adam J. Kurtz's Things are What You Make of Them: Life Advice for Creatives. You can actually read it in one day but I choose to relish each chapter. His book signing is one of my favorite book signings I have attended, and I know that when I get sad I'll just remember that day and feel less sad.

Also, while waiting for the book signing proper last Friday, I whiled away the time by spending monies. One of the things I spent on was The BUST DIY Guide to Life: Making Your Way Through Every Day by Laurie Henzel and Debbie Stoller. I have an entire shelf/ pile dedicated to DIY books and I'm happy to have this as the latest addition.


I am happiest when I make, and I am excited to make things with this as guide!

WRITING

A cheesy love letter. It's Valentine season, y'all!

LISTENING TO

My Loved Spotify playlist. It's a collection of my favorite love songs. ♡

WEARING

House clothes. I opted to work from home today because - TMI but - I anticipated the deadliest cramps in my history of having my period because my usual cycle of 28 days extended to 76 days because of my myomas. Now that my period has finally come, we can already schedule my operation. I am freakin' scared but it has to happen as soon as possible, before my myomas get even bigger.

THINKING

I need to be busier. An idle mind is the playground of a shopaholic's wish lists.

FEELING

RED, so I feel the need for the Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color in Uncensored.


I haven't read a single negative review. I need it. *cries*

LOVING

Dolls, but you know that already. I said I will never get a Blythe or a Fashion Royalty doll, but I find myself looking at photos of them lately.




I particularly like Blythe dolls with mint green or forest green long curly hair, or those with brown hair but modern bobs. I am actually thinking of selling some of my Barbie/ Monster High/ Ever After High dolls to finance my future Blythe. H E L P.

WANTING

See above. (๑•́‧̫•̀๑)  

NEEDING

Money. Well, dolls and other expensive hobbies aside, I really need funds for my operation so I have started checking my stashes again for stuff I can possibly sell.

But then I get invites to things like the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale preview happening next week so what is the going rate for a kidney nowadays.


I'll get buried in a pit of books and dolls and other hobbies.


WISHING

Ultimately, I just wish for things to turn out okay.

Happy February, you. Thank you for reading. ♡
