It's official. I'm depressed.

Although it's a little bit odd or childish it may seem. Yes, I'm declaring the entirity of it now here in my blog simply because I have no one and nothing else to talk about it with.. or should I say, comfortable enough? I'm still blessed though. I have my dog sitting by my side as I write this emotional masterpiece at exactly 4:13 in the morning.

I never felt so alone..

The exact feeling I am feeling right now is.. no matter how many people claim or truly care about me, nobody could actually join me in this time of unhappiness. Time is passing so fast and every people I know has a life to attend to and I am too shy to ask for a second of it. Or perhaps, I am shy because I can't bear to take a moment out of that contentment they have right now. They deserve it. And I just can't bear to demand for a piece of it. From close friends, to siblings, to significant other.. I don't have the stomach to rattle the peace.

Looking on the brighter side, I wonder. Will this grief lead me to a better output of my work? Like those many famous artists? It would be a treat though.. But I wouldn't really want to die unhappy nor would I want to kill myself.

Time.. it has been fleeting. And I wonder where will myself lead me next. I don't know what I exactly want or need. Do I just need somebody who could join me? I can't even tell if I really wanted that. I'm too comfortable here.. within myself.

It's 4:36 AM, back to work..

Going Bridal~


It seems that I can't go back to my routine as quickly as I wanted to. My responsibilities as one of the eldest in the family, as a designer/entrepreneur, and as a student kept on clashing. So many things to do, so little time..

Even so, it's a learning experience. I got to appreciate every free time I got for myself. And thanks to the non-working holiday today for the Chinese New Year, I have more time to rest even though I'm running with a cold and fever. >.<

One of my latest creations is this terno. My Aunt asked me to make a gown for her for she was one of the principal sponsors of my cousin's wedding. It was nice of her to ask me for I had never made a dress before for a wedding. And I had never made a terno before too. It was a challenging task but I grew when I did it.

Terno made out of Pinya jusi fabric with organza as interlining and silk satin as lining. It has stylized butterfly sleeves and adorned with glass beads.

My whimsy works are still alive though. I would appreciate if you'd check them out at Dorotee Sweetlips' page.

Brazilian Lace Closures Create Natural Looks With Versatile Strands

Essentially a hair piece that resembles a laced crown with strands, lace closures need to be well-made and woven with authentic Virgin wefts, frequently present in trustworthy hair extension the likes of Her Hair Company, to avoid possible damage. Virgin hair extensions from established vendors are correctly threaded in to the lacework, without needing an excessive amount of pressure in your original hair and scalp roots throughout the installation. Despite being near to the scalp, natural hair arranged into cornrows beneath the lacework can also be protected against added stress for extended usage.

Much like hair bundle products, closure pieces provide the same advantages of testing out different colors and textures that you might be unable to have with natural hair. Either letting lengthy black tresses flow or cutting individuals blonde curls, this hair addition allows you to experience hairstyles you most most likely would need to pay more for in salons, or cause hair thinning problems if completed with natural locks.

The very best lace closure weaves have based crowns that mirror your scalp and lace fronts that suit and blend well using the complexion from the brow. Most celebrity hairstylists are expert only at that, using their clients having the ability to don various hairstyles for each appearance.
Being placed close to the skin on the top of the mind, lace closures are unlikely to create harm to hair, unless of course if it's worn too tight, which could eventually create unnecessary tension around the roots, resulting in breakage and weakening from the strands. It is also vital that you perform regular washing and rinsing from the hair despite the additional threads to get rid of the risk of chemical or particle buildup.

When having your hair weave done, make certain that the stylist has sufficient understanding on hair enhancements to make sure proper application.
