Inspired by the ribbons and bows that were in my dresses when I was a little girl, and paying tribute to my late daddy who used to tie my hair for me (yes, it was my daddy who loved to braid my hair for school), these pieces bring me back to my childhood days of so much fun and reverie.


And carousels…who doesn’t love them? Boys and girls alike, we all like these merry-go-rounds. And living in apartments with playgrounds, we kids couldn’t wait to head downstairs for some crazy climbing, digging and chasing around those modest carousels. They still hold a special place in my heart and I rejoice whenever I catch a glimpse of them in old estates. Not those modern synthetics one. They don’t make them like that anymore. The ones that we occasionally see at those big fairs and in overseas countries just ooze with romantic connotations – bright, glittering, and fairytale like.


New products! I love to wear flats and those ballet flats from Cotton On are my casual shoes. Sometimes, I just feel like dressing them up and thus, this idea! Even though I categorize them as shoe clips, they can be used as a brooch, a hair clip, or a multi-clip to adorn a plain top. Add some razzle-dazzle and something ordinary is transformed instantly! Let me know how you would like to use them and I’ll customize accordingly. Limited pieces and I sell them in pairs. Shoes not included, of course. 🙂

We all have our fair share of bad hair days. Don’t we just hate ‘heading’ out with a mane of hair that is untamable, undesirable and irking the hell out of us whenever we pass by a mirror?


When I have these days (which I can totally assure you that it happens much too often to my liking with my fine hair), I will whip out my hat or simply go the cool way – tie my tresses into a ponytail. And I thought, how boring it is to just do that with a plain old rubber band that will cause my hair to break in so many places. So, at pling, we jazz it up a little and make sure you have your bad hair fix in a more beautiful way.


And like what Martin Luther King once said, “The hair is the richest ornament of women.” Zap, bad hair days!
