Disclaimer – JORD kindly gifted me this watch to wear, test, and become acquainted with. However, all opinions are my own :)
Check my new watch! A friend of mine has a wood watch that I admire every time she wears it, so when the lovely people at JORD got in touch about reviewing one of their watches, I jumped at the chance! I mean, just look at this beauty…
After a (very) lengthy peruse of their shop, I chose to go with the Ely Series in Natural Green and Maple, and was blown away – not only by how cool the watch itself was, but oh my – the packaging! It comes in it’s own little wooden box, complete with protective cushion, extra links, and a cleaning cloth. It feels very.. thoughtful.. and I like that.
Luckily for me, it arrived just hours before I was due to head to Melbourne for a girls weekend (best time EVER!), which presented the perfect opportunity to test this baby out. Melbourne is freezing at this time of year, so I pared it with jeans, boots and a navy pea coat which worked beautifully. Somehow it kinda added that little bit of natural earthy-ness and warmth (as strange as that may sound).
So fun! Thanks to JORD for letting me test out the Ely – I love it :)
You can find loads of other designs and styles (for both men and women!) over in the JORD shop – the lovely folks there even offer a sizing service so your watch will arrive ready-to-wear.. how cool is that?!
…And because no post is complete without Arlo making an appearance, this is how photoshoots go down in our house these days ;-)
Wooden Watch Men
OMG you know how sometimes you just come across a website/shop/blog that takes your breath away? That just happened to me! I can’t believe I’ve not known about Nectar & Stone until now, I feel like I’ve been missing out.
So, to ensure no one else feels like that, here’s me telling you to go check out their incredible, sweet, candylicious, frilly and delightfully feminine Instagram feed – you won’t regret it. I don’t think I’ve been so in love with someone’s instagram photos until now… Just check these out:
And if you happen to live in Australia (or even better, Melbourne), lucky you! Nectar & Stone are based in Melbourne which means you can actually get your sticky hands on all these delicious goodies if you want to.. and why wouldn’t you want to? I want to! Someone teleport me to Melbourne, stat!
I can’t be the only one who now has a huge craving for cake, and the desire to learn how to pipe flowers out of icing?! :)

I think these prints are so much fun! Wouldn’t they look great in a kitchen? I especially love that they’ve got a screen printed look to them… the big blueberry poster is my favourite :)
There are loads more goodies from Anek in her shop, so do head over there and have a look around!
And on that pretty note, it’s time to sign off for the weekend. Do you have any plans? I don’t think we’ll be doing much… I’ve got a craft party to attend, and some work to catch up on. Maybe also a quick trip to the beach at some point if the weather permits :)
Hope you have a good one!
You all know I have a weakness for pretty screen printed goodies, so these gorgeous black and white notebooks from My Live Love are right up my alley!
Aren’t they lovely? Each cover has been designed and hand screen printed by the talented folks at My Live Love, in the coolest bold geometric patterns. I can totally imagine them displayed on my desk, or whipping one out of my handbag when I need a pretty notebook on the go…
You can find these and more over at My Live Love. :)
Look at these fun cards from Ma And Grandy! Don’t you think they’d be such a joy to receive? I love that they’re so playful and unique, ready to brighten someone’s day :)
And I’m even more excited, because they’re designed and printed in Brisbane! They’re the work of graphic designer Natala Stuetz, and are available in her beautiful new store – Ma And Grandy.
Head on over to Ma And Grandy to see the full range. Oh, and it’s free shipping within Australia.. bonus! :)
