G R A P E - Purple Organza Flower Hair Clip

With my thick curly hair, sometimes it is hard for me to find hair accessories that actually keep my hair up. I am always on the search for something cute, but strong. From one of my favorite shops, I found this beautiful organza flower alligator clip. The beautiful handmade flower is so elegant, yet the clip is very strong to hold up to all types of hair. I am a proud owner of this clip in sapphire blue organza. I love how I can wear my hair in a pretty updo and stick this lovely clip in to help hold all my thick hair up. I love it so much I might have to get another one in this pretty purple! To find this great hair clip, as well as other handmade hair accessories, visit Twisted Flowers.

W I N T E R - Blue Leaf Earrings

Even though the weather seems otherwise, it is Winter! In one of my favorite Etsy shops I came across these beautiful powder blue leaf earrings. I love the color! These delicate leaves are simple, yet very pretty. These earrings would be the perfect addition to any Winter outfit. Maybe with a white sweater dress or a pretty cream blouse? To find these lovely earrings and more wonderful handmade jewelry visit Handmade By Firefli.

Mockingjay Quote Bookmark

I recently read The Hunger Games series. Best books I have ever read! Which is saying a lot, because a have read many, many great books. I was inspired to create a bookmark to go along with the books. The bookmark pictured has a quote from the third book in the series, Mockingjay. At the end of the book, Peeta asks Katniss, "You love me. Real or not real?" Her answer, "Real." Along with this sweet quote, there is a small white pearl to represent the one Peeta gave Katniss. Fan or not, this is a touching quote that could represent any love. To find this simple, yet romantic bookmark, along with other handmade items, visit Pretty Petals Paper Shop.
