etsy shop update












Vintage 1980s art deco antique silver earrings

I have had this obsession with earring ever since I cut my hair really short and dyed it blue. I go crazy for any kind over sized  and statement with vintage ones the ones I make myself when I get a moment of creativity during my busy schedule. My ultimate goal is to take jewelry making courses and learn to make my own silver designs and sell them in little shops in Montreal and online via etsy or any other platform that will exist then. All these are now available in my etsy shop enjoy!

Jord wood watch review


A few weeks ago Jord watches contacted me and asked if I wanted to review one of their wood watches and I was pretty excited by the idea. I had always been interested in this unconventional style of watch and I was totally happy when they asked. If you are not familiar with Jord watches they create beautiful time pieces wood watches that are made to last and be worn everyday and to be unique. I got so many compliments from people on this watch, it's not everyday you see a wood watch.




They had the watched sized to my exact measurements by sending me a digital ruler to measure around my wrist which is amazing no need to bring to the jeweler later. I really appreciated that when I received the watch they sent the spare parts just in case I needed to have it resized again.

The shipping was lighting fast, no hassle even to far away land Quebec, Canada where I live ;)  Upon opening the perfectly packaged box I found a hand crafted logo wood box with my watch inside. The watch is carefully wrapped around a little tweed pillow nestled inside the box with a cover for storage.




I was really skeptical of the delicate watch at first but after a week of test wearing it in different situations I was pleasantly surprised. The only ick I would say is in the locking mechanism when I flex my wrist muscle sometimes it pops open but this may be on my fault when measuring my wrist for the sizing, but I am not worried I will get it adjusted with those extra pieces that came with it.



Overall, I was very happy with the whole experience of the wood watch, I love how the wood of my style the Fieldcrest in black reminds me of my favorite piece of vintage teak furniture. I plan on getting a lot of wear out of this unique time piece.
Thank you Jord ;)

Firmoo eye wear review

DSC_6972

A few weeks ago the online eye wear company Firmoo  contacted me and asked me if I would review a pair of there frames and I was very pleased to give them a try and give you my honest opinion.

I chose this clear purple model to compliment my new hair color, their prices are very affordable and shipping is very fast. The frames come to you with a case to protect your frames and a little cleaning and repair kit. Very handy for when you are on the go.

They are light and easy to wear and I like how they add a little color to my weekly outfits at work that can be from time to time very dark. Today I opted for a more vibrant look with a pink chiffon blouse and added a little drama with my eye makeup with some purple eye liner.

Overall I am pretty happy with the look of my frames, the comfort it ok, I had to get them adjusted by my local optician, they tend to slide off my face very easily. The quality is you get what you pay for. If you like to change glasses a few times a week I would get a couple pairs and switch it up for that price.
I will definitely consider to buy from them in the near future they have so many modern styles to choose from ;)
 Thank you Firmoo for giving me the chance to review your products!
