Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas "Donut top"

Hello everyone! Did you miss me? I don't think so, because I've been posting so often that I haven't given you time to miss me :P.

So, are you ready for another doll review? I don't know if I'm going to review all of my unboxed dolls, not only because I won't probably have enough time, but also because some dolls I don't feel like doing a review. 



 Today I'm going to review Barbie Fashionistas "Donut Top". I don't really know if her official name was "Donut Top", but it was the name she figured out on many online shops. I'm going to review this particular dolls because she's one of the dolls that's going to be rebodied, along with the L.A. Girl, but I wanted to make a post about her before I going off with her head.

Doll review: Barbie Made to Move "Purple Top"

Hello my dear doll lovers! I'm back with another review. Today I'm going to review one of the  Made to Move Barbie dolls (Wave 1). I have already reviewed Asha (yellow top) from the the same line here


Actually, I have two of this dolls, but one (the one with the least nice face) is going to become a body donator for the L.A. Girl Fashionista, as well as another of the Made to Move ladies.

Pop of color

Hello everyone! Have you enjoyed your weekend?

I must confess that I'm not working on my crafts as much as I should if I want to build a doll cafe at some point during this century. I don't have much free time, so I work on this blogs mainly on sundays and bits of time here and there. Besides some doll crafts, I have a frankendolly project on mind, but before starting it I'd want to do a couple more reviews. 

Today I haven't done a review, but instead, I've been taking some doll photos. I'm not the best doll photographer and I don't have a professional camera or studio to work, but I like to experiment and try to improve. As you may have noticed at this point, almost all of my photos have the same navy blue background, so today I tryied to add more colour to my photos. I used wall paint color sample sheets that you can get at a paint store (because I work in one, so I could just borrow them), but you can use colored cardstock as well.

Doll review: Barbie Fashionistas "L.A. Girl"

Hello everyone! Thanks everyone for your lovely comments on my last post. I don't usually get many comments, so I was quite surprised.

I took a small break from crafting in order to do another doll review. This time I'm going to review the L.A Girl, from 2015 Barbie Fashionistas line, also known as the blonde with shaved hair. I wanted this doll since the very first moment I saw her, but I was waiting to see if she got an articulated version, but because that doesn't seem to be happening, I decided to buy her anyway.

Working on some doll furniture

Hello everyone!

One of my projects for this summer is to build a doll size cafe so I can have an scenario for my pictures and probably doll stories. I decided to start with doing a table and some chairs that could also be used in other scenarios. The table was the easiest one, so I started with that.

I got this idea from one of My Froggy Stuff videos, but I don't remember which, so probably if you go to her Youtube Channel you'll find it.

I started by drawing some circles on a box, like a cereal box. I used an enamel can to trace them, as it seemed to have a perfect size.

Doll review: Barbie Style Grace

Hello my dear doll lovers! What have you been up to? I wish I had started this post earlier, but this past two nights I've been putting some order in my doll room. I'm not done yet, but at least all my Monster High shoes are organized.

Today I'm going to review Grace, from the Barbie Style doll line. I've liked Grace since the So In Style dolls came out, but those were never sold in my country. Also, I like the concept of the Style doll line, at least the first two waves, because the dolls came fully articulated and the fashions were more realistic. Unfortunately, this particular doll, as well as the two Nikki dolls in this line, was never sold in Spain, so I had to get this one at Amazon.com. 

Barbie Style Grace Review

At first, Grace was introduced in the So In Style line, which focused on Grace and her friends Trichelle, Kara, Chandra and Marisa. I really like that line, and it was too bad it wasn't sold here, so I really hope those characters get featured in future lines. However, in the Barbie Life In The Dreamhouse show, Grace is introduced as a very smart, science loving girl who becomes good friends with Barbie.

Doll review: Iris Clops I Love Fashion

Hello there!

Now that the course is over, I can start working on this blog again. I'll try to make the most of this summer and post as much as I can. I'm also planning to do more diverse posts, because I feel that last year I focused too much on reviews, but that will be in future posts, as today is time for a review. This time I'm going to review Iris Clops, from the Monster High I love fashion (or I <3 Fashion) line. It's been ages since I did my last Monster High review!

Monster High Iris Clops doll review

Iris Clops is a former Monster High background character that came into the spotlight in 2014 when she was released in a two-doll pack (along with Manny Taur) as a San Diego ComiCon exclusive. I must confess that I wasn't completely drawn to her when I saw her SDCC version, but this one catched my attention. Also, this one was much easier to get than a SDCC exclusive!

Happy World Doll Day 2016!

Hello there! It's been a long time since I last posted, but you know I'm quite busy with University and my job.

Today is a great day, not only because I finished my final exams, which means that I will be free until september; it's also a great day because it's World Doll Day! It was created to spread a message of love and hapiness and it all started with this letter:
