She found it in the city, but the city doesn’t talk.

A spark of creativity just hit me when I saw this lovely thing at Candy Mag’s website a few days ago. So I decided to make my own, and give it to my Mom as a Mother’s Day gift!

Want to know how to make your own glittery plumes? Here’s how:

For this project, you’ll need: 

Feather earrings
Glue
Glitters (though you have to ask the Cullens really nicely.. lol)
Clear nail polish (not included in photo)

Spread the glue about halfway down the earrings. Any glue would do, but I suggest you use Glue Gel because it’s the most cooperative and spreads easily and smoothly.

Sprinkle with glitter immediately, before it dries. Now, the amazing thing here is that you can pick whatever color glitter you would use on your earrings, instead of buying those expensive ones at malls. Cheap feather earrings can rage from 50 – 100 php! Truly a bargain.

After letting the glue dry completely, shake off the excess glitter.  Reapply glue and glitter, if needed. I suggest you do it over a piece of old newspaper so the glitter wouldn’t fly all over your room.

Apply a coat (or two) of clear nail polish (I used gold glitter polish, since I used gold glitters. It also helps cover some holes) so the glitters won’t rub off your hand whenever you touch it.

Voila! Wrapped, and ready for delivery! You can actually buy loads of earrings for cheap prices at bazaars or stalls, coat them with glitter, and give them to your friends! It’s perfect for gifts if you’re on a tight budget, or for yourself, for an instant revamp in your wardrobe! 😉

Singing la-da-da-da-da, I’ll be there in a heartbeat.

The title of this post was taken from Simple Plan’s Summer Paradise, a really feel-good song, though the lyrics say otherwise. I’m currently on a hipster mood, downloading songs that are not too mainstream on YouTube (Ssh!). I actually discovered 20+ songs, some were recommended by my hipster of a boyfriend. But enough about me and my penchant for things geeky.

So as you can predict by now, my family and I always shop for groceries every Saturday. That would be considered as our “family day” instead of the usual Sunday (because we don’t go to Church, read about it here).

Here are some of my finds:

Totally spazzed out when I saw this! Perfect for cold nights!! I swear, it’s more comfortable than a bulky comforter. Though thinking about cold nights right now is like shooting the moon because of the scorching summer sun we’re currently experiencing.

Cutie nail cutter! I don’t know why, but my nails are super soft and sensitive so I can’t grow them long because they tend to chip and break. So this, along with it’s partner-in-crime, Mr. Nail File, are my nails’ best friends!

My new Candy Magazine School Planner! I had a lot of help with last year’s one, so it will surely help loads with this! It’s so adorable, and it’s from my favorite magazine! Candy is the best magazine for teens, in my opinion. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but because of this planner, I can’t wait for school!!

Meg Cabot is one of my favorite authors, and boy, am I glad to see this on National Bookstore’s shelves since I was looking for this in forever!! ❤

New Avengers shirt featuring Iron Man!! He’s easily my second favorite Avengers hero, and yes, it’s largely because of RDJ. ❤

Found these suuuper cute necklaces for only 30 php in National Bookstore of all places!!

New nail polish to experiment with and to add to my growing collection!

New things for my dorm! A floral plastic mug, pink plates, and a swirly apple green broom and dust pan! We love accessorizing and decorating our dorm with cute stuff!

And since we’re on the topic of awesome finds, here are pictures of my souvenirs from Palawan! Who knew people there can be so stylish?

Awesome bangles for only 100 php each! Red is my favorite color to accessorize with, and you can never go wrong with pearls!

Instantly fell in love with this floral hat the minute I laid my eyes on it. ❤

It’s more fun in Palawan, Philippines shirt! ❤

My favorite, “I explored Palawan” shirt! Palawan is very special because it was my first trip with my family! 🙂

Off to watch Dark Shadows with my parents!

New babies!

Went shopping with my family today! Every Saturday is our family day because we eat out and shop for our groceries. Here’s what I bought:

I’ve always wanted these!!! I’ve got a penchant for raglans shirts because they’re not too girly, nor too manly. Perfect for casual dates or hanging out! Fortunately, Artwork has a big range of designs to choose from. You have to buy fast, because sizes are running out.

T-strap flats from Solemate!! Got these babies for only 300 php. ❤

Ha ha ha ha. Batman briefs for meeee! I love Batman with a passion! He’s the only superhero without any superpowers yet he still manages to be awesome. My other favorites are Hawkeye, Daredevil and Iron Man. Yes, I prefer heroes without superpowers. 🙂

New book! Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I loved her Delirium series and I know this wouldn’t disappoint. I was hoping for three new books that were supposed to be released last May 1 but unfortunately, it hasn’t reached the Philippine shores yet (I think).

I just loooove the feeling of buying new school supplies! It gives off a positive vibe and reminds you that the summer vacation is almost over! Personally, I can’t wait for school, because this is my junior year in college!! This is the REAL DEAL. No more extracurricular activities, NSTP, or P.E. classes! This is our major year, and I expect that it will be difficult! I hope I can make it! 🙂

More about our Palawan trip soon!

I still believe in heroes. -Nick Fury

Tony Stark (Iron Man): Let’s do a headcount: Your brother, the demigod; a super-soldier, a living legend who actually lives up to the legend; a man with breathtaking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins; and you’ve managed to piss off every single one of us. 

I don’t know why, but I freakin’ love this quote from the movie trailer!!!!

So, I’m showing you my glow-in-the-dark Avengers shirt from Folded and Hung! As you can see, I’m not rooting for a specific superhero. I’m rooting for all of them!!! ❤

Showing in the Philippines at April 25! That’s only four days to go! Buy your tickets as early as now because I foresee a looooooong loooooong line at the cinemas. 🙂

 Crappy face. Ha ha.

See you at the cinemas, maybe? 🙂
