Coffee and Crafts


My hands smell of coffee after a three-day photoshoot which required lots of craft-making. While Beam and I were busy making props and all sorts of things, Em (theminordetail.livejournal.com) was able to snap these beautiful behind-the-scene photos during the shoot. Her commitment to Instagram is something that I really admire.

After the typhoon this week, it was unbearably hot --perfect weather, actually, for our outdoor layouts. But that also meant we were extra sweaty and sticky (and sparkly from the glittered props) all day. We cooled down with some homemade Ice-blended hot chocolate with almond milk (I prefer it to soy, and besides, that's all I had at home!) and homemade african safari iced tea, with some fresh lemon juice and coco sugar syrup. Hooray for leftover props ;)

I'm so happy to be working on this project again with my favorite yearly coffee & tea crew: Em, Dar, Beam and Ralph!
