Barbie Book and New Lottie Doll

At a second hand book store, I found this hardbound book! I just had to get it!

It's the Collector's Encyclopedia of Barbie Doll Exclusives and More by J. Michael Augustyniak. I think this was published in 1997, so I don't see the newer face sculpts in this book. I wonder if I can memorise most of the dolls in this book, hahaha. I was already able to identify the Barbie skirt I have in my collection because of it, so this book did help.

In other news, I found a nue Barbie doll at a thrift store a while back, and I really like her face. It turns out that it's a Birthstone Barbie for April! She's beautiful!

And I'm getting a new Lottie doll soon! I'm going to talk about her when it finally gets here. I'm so excited!

Asha Went To A Recital

So Asha went to my friend's recital. My friend did pole spin and pole dance for the show! It was a great night because not only did I enjoy my friend's performance, the other performances were amazing, too! I especially liked the aerial silk performance! Here are two photos after the show. 

My friend was so nice to have this photo taken with Asha!! Asha has never tried pole dancing. She's more into yoga, but it's nice to see something new for a change, don't you think!!

Barbie Made To Move Soccer Player Doll

My old friend gave me an apology gift (lol) and when I opened the package, I saw this! A Barbie Made To Move Soccer Player doll!

This is the first time I get a face sculpt like this. Because I've been really busy, I haven't had time to play and take photos of her, out of the box. She's my second Made To Move Barbie, next to Asha, so I'm excited about what I can come up with these two.

Lottie Wildlife Photographer Mia Doll

OMG, this is great news. Arklu is coming up with a new doll from the Lottie Dolls line called Wildlife Photographer Mia!! I got the photos from the International Design Awards website:

The source is this link: 

Mia the Wildlife Photographer was created to reflect the brand's mission which is that childhood should be an inclusive place, where every child belongs regardless of gender, ethnicity or ability. Mia empowers children to become inspired by wildlife through her packaging elements, her appropriate clothing and her STEAM focused accessories. Mia's got six photo-style collector cards included in the doll box which are inspired by real kids, nature photos submitted by children as part of an international photography competition to encourage fans to get involved in Mia's design. Mia wears a cochlear implant, which is part of her story rather than a focal point; as reflected in the Lottie chapter books. Mia is a collaboration with 'Toy Like Me' a UK non-profit who campaign for diversity in the toy-box and for better representation of disabilities so that differently abled children can see themselves reflected in the toys they play with.

Mia's face sculpt is different from Lottie's. It might be Finn's? But her faceup, hair colour, hair texture and skin colour really work well together! She's gorgeous!

What do you think of her? I think her red outfit is striking. Her outfit caught my attention very quick! Her box is also good looking! I hope Arklu comes up with more dolls!!!

My Lottie Dolls Instagram Takeover

I took over the Lottie Dolls Instagram account for about a week, and it was quite an experience. I covered June 3rd to 9th.

I wasn't able to log in on June 3rd due to authentication issues. I think it's because of my location because most of the people that have taken over the account are based in Europe, and I'm in the Philippines. Two ladies from the Lottie team helped me out so I was able to log in the next day.

I'm only listing the links of the posts I made because there's a lot, but on the next blog entry a future post, I'll post the actual photos, and then some.

Sixteen posts. Not bad, considering I lost a day of posting. And this is their thank you post. Aww.

If you like taking photos of Lottie and would like to take part in the Lottie Instagram Takeover, email Here is the announcement about the project made back in January.

You can use this link to get to their website and look for the doll you'd like if you want to order one: If you ask me, I like Muddy Puddle's outfit, and Lottieville Festival's skin colour is gorgeous, but nothing beats my first Lottie doll, Spring Celebration Ballet, because I know her face and angles so well. It's easier for me to photograph a doll that I'm very familiar with. If I were to get another Lottie doll, I'd probably get Forest Friend for her lovely outfit and gorgeous hair colour, or Finn, because I don't have a boy Lottie doll yet.

Thank you, Lottie team!!! It was a pleasure!
