I've sold all my florally clips and headbands from the "I'm A Little Teapot" post. All together now, In Glue We Trust! To make things easier for you, here's what's left in my store:

"Yes she can-can-can" feather clip

And of course, made to order goodness like:
Feather necklaces

Now all you have to do is click, look, like and buy.

Off to study,
Risa :)

I'm A Little Teapot

In ye olden days, tea parties often meant exploring the mountains & dense forests that were undoubtedly nearby. However, in today’s timid scenery, throwing one is just a great excuse for conversation, cute clothes and new Bend & Snap hairpieces.

Riki, U.P.'s adorable courtside reporter, wears "Tough Love". Fuchsia and black checks headband, Php 200.00

"Lady Bug" headband, Php 200.00

And now, clips!

Sew It Begins...

Just a tease of what's to come next week:
(Images from Flickr, i think? Whoops.)
Now, I'm not advocating teasing and playing games here.

But we all know that a pause is good. It helps set the mood and encourages Mr. ManBoy to go for the kill.

A break is needed in order to dance in those new heels. In new shoes, beware.

And a vacation, even a simple non-working holiday, makes me feel like I'm in Aruba-Jamaica-Bermuda-Bahama.

And I'm sorry, but making eye contact with those pictures for longer than 3 seconds won't reveal what I cooked up for you. This is gonna be the antimatter of my future!

Lend Me Your Talents

Look who's now upgrading her photos.
I had so much fun in my first "real" photoshoot and I wanna keep it up. I think it adds even more personality to the blog, even Simon Cowell will be charmed. And so, if you're a photographer, a model, a stylist, a creative director (or someone creative in general!), a makeup artist, a D-I-Yer or someone like me who pretends she can do it all, then i want you! Remember the parable of the talents? God wants you to use them to help a sister out! Can I please get an Amen? Call/text/email me. :) Meanwhile, I am counting the days till I graduate and begin my little Bend & Snap empire.
This is my Jai Ho!!! Oh-oh-oh-oh!

How fast can you go?

Para na sabi, para na sabi, para mama, para na diyan sa tabi!
It's like cotton candy for your hair!
