One of the best things about having a girly-girl is dressing them up.  I am not a clothes horse but my daughter N is! (I wonder if she got that from her photographer-dad?!).  I truly enjoy buying her clothes and dressing her up while Stan enjoys taking photographs of her.  One of my favorite things to buy for her are hair accessories or what N calls “pretty-pretty”.  And I have amassed a huge collection!! Luckily, my sister also has a girly-girl so we share hair accessories.

N and A’s hair accessories collection

Most of N’s accessories were purchased abroad since I found the local ones quite plain, badly made and just tacky.  Last year, I was pleased to learned that one of my LATCH co-peer counselors, Ethel Bernales would be launching her own business of hair accessories and pettiskirts.  We met up and I shared N’s collection with her.  Early this year, she started her business – Celestina & Co. (named after her daughter) and has received great press since!

With our trip and my pregnancy, I haven’t been able to prepare an event for my blogiversary (yes, my blog is 2 years old!) but Ethel has generously offered to sponsor a giveaway for moms with girly-girls!! The prize for this giveaway is 1 purple pettiskirt (size 0-12 months) and 1 flower clip.

We have purchased several of Ethel’s flower clips and we love them!  Quality and price points of the hair accessories are great – comparable to my US-purchased clips (purchased at sale price!!)  Here are my favorites from Celestina & Co.’s collection:

Plum Silk Peony
Bumblebee Clip 
Red Floral Designer Handmade Blossom
