I have been bummed these past few days because I didn’t have any metal hair clips/barrettes but it turns out I do! I should have unpacked my materials when I came home for my short summer.

I’ve ventured a new item! Headbands / hairbands!! Before we get to them though, here are new hair clips / barrettes!

Starting today, when you buy one hair clip/ barrette it will be $1.99 but when you buy two the price will be $3.00.


$1.99 per hair barrette/ clip.

Overview of the newest batch I made today.


Headbands: $2.50 each.

The coffee colored hairband kind of reminds me of a crown, what do you think?

If you would like to buy more than 5 items, please leave a comment or email me at neihhien@hotmail.com and I will give you a special price. All prices include shipping (First Class Mail USPS). International shipping will cost $2.00.

Hardshell Case

for 13″ MacBook Pro in White.
(+)This overall case is really nice. I like the simplicity of it. This particular case is opaque whereas another one such as green has a bit of transparency to it. Because it is opaque, the Apple logo is cover up which might be a make or break deal for people. For me it was a make deal because it’s like my notebook is undercover. I know the lighting for the logo changes as the lighting on the screen changes but with this case, I know the lighting isn’t distracting anyone around me.
The case adds a bit more weight and bulkiness to it but that is expected with any case. It was a really easy case to install.
(-) The only downside to it is that because of its opaqueness, the battery indicator on the left side is not visible when pressed but that isn’t really important because there are other modes to telling how much the battery is charged.
I am still going to use my neoprene case just because I feel like I need the extra protection. I am just a loser that way.
Here it is in all its glory. You can see the Incase logo engraved in the plastic-nice touch. Holes on the bottom to ventilate the heat.
Sides of the notebook. I’m pressing the button on the third photo and as you can see, you can not see the battery indicator lights at all.
I kind of wish I got to see the “Frost” case because based on the website, it looks like it has a bit of a silver/metallic tint to it that might blend in with the aluminum unibody.
I would recommend getting a hardshell cover or something because even with the neoprene sleeve, you are bound to scratch it somehow with something…either on your desk.. or you lap. I noticed I had minor scratches at the bottom of my notebook. My heart sank and I was determined to get a case.
At the BestBuy store, there was a green case too. I was drawn to the white case and then I saw the green one. I dropped the white one right away but my mom said she liked the white one instead. I took my mom’s advice and chose the white one instead. I am glad I did because the green case was more transparent–which isn’t bad, I just prefer it to be opaque? I feel like my notebook has its identity hidden. Can you say….Undercover? Sneaky. What a ninja!!

I can’t stress this enough. You don’t always have to wear your hair clips in your hair! I made two new hair bows tonight. It’s 12:35PM and I decided it is time to stop.

The following pictures will illustrate what I mean about not wearing your hair accessories in your hair.

BAM! In your face bow!

In your hair!

Attach it to your neck = bow tie/bow tie necklace!!

Wearing a plain tank? Spice it up with your hair bow barrette/clip!

These hair clips are so convenient! They stay in place and you don’t have to worry about losing them!

Tee hee. Floral bow.

Snazzy.

The possibilities are limitless!!

What am I trying to do?

I am trying to share handcrafted items. I've always had a thing for hair accessories from HotTopic, Urban Outfitters, and many other places but it gets really expensive. This is why I began to make my own. That's why my prices are low. I just want to call it even in terms of material costs and postage cost.

I don't want my prices to be around $8 because that would defeat the purpose of my projects. Plus, these accessories are handcrafted, not mass produced. Each and every one of them are made out of love. I usually make them when I feel inspired or in the mood make things. I've tried to force myself to make things and they never turn out right. >.<

How do you order them?
Email/comment and I confirm your order and send you an invoice. I will be using paypal for all transaction.

My paypal email is:
neihhien@hotmail.com

Thanks for stopping by!
