HeroTV VJ Myrtle Gail for Dorotee Sweetlips

Gah, I missed blogging about personal stuff. I feel like I'm sounding too redundant lately sharing about the stints I am receiving for Dorotee Sweetlips advertisement. I just can't say no because seriously, it would be a waste to let this kind of opportunities pass. I mean, as an owner of a brand, I would have to pay tons of money to have it advertised on TV or magazine or even have it endorsed by a celebrity.. But people are offering it to me for free and it's really heartwarming that people are interested to share my work to a wider audience. There were no significant and dramatic changes on my sales yet though since this fashion is very niche-based. Still, spreading awareness of the brand and lolita fashion is a must for this business to survive.

Moving on, here are some photos from today's taping for HeroTV where my lovely friend, Myrtle, endorsed a few of Dorotee Sweetlips dresses.

My beau accompanied me that day. My friend, and stint sidekick, Xiar, didn't made it this time due to some health issues sooo I literally nagged Owen the whole morning to come with me.

Taping time!

I got bored in between shoots so this is what happened. :))

This ABS-CBN compound is sooo big I sooo want all the unused spaces. hahaha!

Sorry for mismatched shoes but as you can see at the director's monitor above, they don't include the legs anyway so we didn't bother changing her shoes anymore.

Sooo, that's about it. I'm pretty tired today jumping from this to another appointment so I'm gonna go on and play Candy Crush Saga for relaxation purposes, haha! I have to get up early tomorrow too for a whole day of work with my intern. I hope I wouldn't forget to document this one. See ya!

Dorotee Sweetlips at PhilSTAR's YSTYLE

I offer everything to my Mama who brought me up so well.

Look Ma, your efforts are now bearing fruit.. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you. How I wish we can share these moments together but thank you for always guiding me. I know it is you who's doing all this magic.

Rhianna Floresca and Alodia Gosiengfiao for Dorotee Sweetlips

If you have been following my posts on Facebook, this news shouldn't be new. Last March 1 was the first day of collaboration I did with a couple of Animax talents, Rhianna and Alodia. The crew was really nice and accommodating and they are really excited about the collaboration as much as I am.

Taping time! Rhianna and Alodia on sweet lolita Dorotee Sweetlips coordinates.

The Ani-mates smiling for my camera. <3
They changed into casual clothes in between segment tapings for variety purposes. Still looking good!

And back again into Dorotee Sweetlips dresses! I've known Alodia ever since I became exposed to the local cosplay community and have heard stories about her good and bad. She's actually pretty welcoming in person and I didn't have a hard time working with her amidst the fame and the sky-high success. (I can tell considering I used to work as a production design intern and I get to work with celebrities way back) I'm pretty curious and excited about her album release in Japan. People can tell things but at the end of the day, she's the one living the dream of a J-pop idol.

Rhianna! sooo elegant and really promising. Please like her page here.

Group picture! :3

Soo cute!

Watch out for it at Ani-Time with Alodia, Monday to Friday at 7PM only on ANIMAX!

Dorotee Sweetlips at AME1UP

Thank you to University of the Philippines' Anime and Manga enthusiasts for inviting me to showcase my Dorotee Sweetlips designs in a fashion show last AME1UP. This was also my second time working with the same set of models from last time. I invited a few good friends to join the catwalk as well. It was a pleasure to work with this specific group since they just know what to do hence making my job easier, haha! All of them perfectly embodies what Dorotee Sweetlips' image is all about.

Sooo proud of my dolls. If you remember my porcelain doll collection, I gave them up already and sold it to a good friend for financial reasons. I think I found the joy again of being surrounded by dolls! Much better because they are life-sized and they respond when I talk to them. How lovely is that?

Yay! Had sooo much fun. Thanks everyone~ <3
