JORD Watches: Go Green With Style

I received a very nice gift from JORD a few weeks ago and I simply love it. Everywhere I go, I always get good compliments and everyone wants to know where I get my new watch from.

Before I start reviewing my watch, let me tell you a little bit about JORD and what makes them so unique and lovable. To be honest with you, I’m not so much of a wrist watch kind of girl, but after looking at JORD watches, I’m at awe because they’re all made of wood and that makes them so interesting and different. Not only the material that impresses me but also the sleek, sexy yet simple design. It’s pretty much a watch you can wear every day and at the same time on special occasions.

The JORD team was kind enough to let me pick my favorite style and I chose the Ely series, only because they look very sharp and I can just imagine how it will hold my wrist beautifully… and I was right! When the package arrived, I was so excited I couldn’t wait to resize and wear it right away (which I did the next day!)

Ely watch is made of natural wood with 4 choices available, the natural green & maple (like the one I have), black, cherry and maple. All look simply fantastic and to be honest with you, I had problems choosing just one so I let them decided for me and I’m very happy with mine. The Ely watch is very light and totally lovable – I wouldn’t recommend you to wear it when you’re under water as it will probably damage the beautiful wood and we wouldn’t want that now, would we?

Enough said, check out some of the pictures I took and get ready to fall in love!

In case some of you didn’t know. I picked up new hobby a few months ago, it’s bracelet-making. Living in Bali, I’ve always been astonished with their variety of beads and crystals. So one day I decided to give it a try and the next thing I know, I’ve been beading for hours! At first I didn’t have any intention to sell but since I’ve been making them non-stop, you can imagine how many bracelets I have. I love bracelets but I sure can’t wear all of them. So I figured maybe it’s good to try and sell them — not only will I get to see people wearing my creations, but I can also earn some extra money. I created two bracelet categories — the trinity (like its name, this set consists of three bracelets that you can wear altogether or separately), I also have single bracelets (they are mostly made out of bigger beads).

VieCouture Trinity Bracelets

The materials I choose are mainly from Bali. However I also ordered some of the pieces online (it is impossible to find good looking charms here), and also some crystals are imported from Thailand, Hong Kong and China.What makes VieCouture bracelets unique is the fact that they’re not mass-production, meaning that there’s only one of its own. So you won’t find your “twins” out there. There’s also a story behind every bracelet, where I get the inspiration from, stuff like that.

A week ago, I received an order from my Russian friend. She’s leaving Bali in December and wanted to bring some souvenirs for her friends. I made 3 Trinity bracelets based on her specifications — pink, yellow and black & red. I finally finished them last night and here they are!

1. Pink Princess.

She told me that this “M” girl is very feminine, and quite a princess. So I decided to go for pink and crystal beads to match her personality. I also added the initial and cute little cameo charms, plus the word “believe”, so hopefully all her fairytale dreams can come true.

2. Mellow Yellow.

Yellow is this “D” girl’s favorite color so I figured to use shiny yellow crystals to make them brighter and much more cheerful. Yellow is a happy color and therefore, I put the word “Hope” so that no matter what happens in life, she will always be hopeful for something better and brighter coming her way, and always be happy.

3. Mysterious Goth.

Last but certainly not least, I have created this very special “goth” looking bracelet set for her vampy friend. I added a beautiful black rose to enhance the mystery. Black and red certainly blend so well in this set!

So ladies, if you have something in mind and would like me to create them through these colorful beads and crystals, feel free to contact me. The price only starts as low as US$15!

With so many advanced and hi-tech gadgets in the market, more and more ladies leave their watch at home, because they can check the time on their phone, iPad or other smart devices. Little do they know that watch is considered to be a prime accessory. Not only for the functionality but also for the fashion value. This gives me enough reason to make watches as the style focus for today, and I have Ernest Jones to thank to. This UK based company offers more than just designer watches but also high quality jewelry. So here are some of good looking watches that I find from the site, watches so divine you can wear them day or night.

1. Fun and Fancy.

If you consider yourself a fun and fancy kind of girl, you should go for a strap/leather watch. Take these watches for example, Vivienne Westwood, Folli Follie and Marc Jacobs — not only do they look fashionably stylish but at the same less formal, which is the look you want to achieve. Such a perfect sidekick for your daily activities!

2. Formal and Elegant.

Nothing beats formal and elegant than a good shine of gold and silver, which is why you would want to circle these watches if that’s the case. I like Tissot for the unique circle chains, Folli Follie for the glamorous pave crystals and DKNY for the soft and elegant rose gold color. They blend beautifully in your office meetings or high-end parties.

3. Smart and Casual.

Going casual is always a smart choice, especially if you look for comfort. For this type of style, you can count on these 3 designers to bring you not only fashion but also function. That’s right ladies, these watches serve their purpose right — giving you daily comfort and at the same time, bring out the high-style in you.

Women can never get enough of jewelry. We always find reasons to add more to our personal collection because women and jewelry can’t be separated! Jewelry is essentials especially when it comes to fashion emergency. It’s amazing how a plain white tee can look so different with a touch of long necklaces or chokers, and how a pair of earrings can freshen up your look just like that. I personally love bracelets and bangles. So, if you’re into jewelry like most women are, then I have good news to share. I recently found this good website that actually does wholesale, it’s TreasureJewelry and they’ve been in business for almost 30 years (established in NY in 1984). What makes it so special is not only the good deal but also the unique collection offered. Using mostly bones, Cowrie shells and glass beads, this shop is all about going ethnically natural. I’m particularly interested in their African fashion jewelry. I don’t normally go crazy over ethnic jewelry but these ones are beautiful. Besides jewelry, they also sell bags, scarves up to pill boxes! All in affordable and reasonable prices. You definitely can’t pass this superb deal ladies!

1. The African Fashion Jewelry.
