Enamel Pins Galore – My Collection

If theres one thing that I buy way too much of, its definitely enamel pins. They come in just about any design you could possibly want, and another plus.. many have glitter paints and designs to make them especially cute. Over the last year or so it seems that I’ve built up a tiny collection, and I felt like it was time to share! This excludes my Walt Disney World trading pins (those deserve their own post!) but many of these came from local markets or conventions that I attend. Plus, they’re great little pieces that help to support local designers and small shops.

How To Wear Enamel Pins

This is where the fun really begins! There are tons of fun ways to either display or wear your pins, so you can share the happiness with everyone! Personally, I keep mine on display in my apartment, but here are a ton of fun ways to display or wear your pins!

  • Wear them on a lanyard (use these locking backs to keep them safe!)
  • Wear them on your shirt collar
  • Wear them on a cardigan to add extra color
  • Pin them to a hat or scarf
  • Pin them to your backpack (again, locking backs please!)
  • Display them on a banner

My Enamel Pin Collection

a little palmful of happiness

I tend to gravitate towards pastel, cutesy kinds of pins (you’ll see that shortly) which makes them all sort of blend together in a nice aesthetic heap.

Kittynaut Enamel Pins

Cute ghibli goodness

My all time favorite spot to get pins is from Kittynaut’s Etsy shop. I’m lucky that they are frequently at cons in my area (hooray!) so I tend to pick up a few pins every time that I see them. They are some of the sweetest people and always put a smile on my face when I see them at conventions.

The above pins are:

Cute kawaii medical pins!

I am loving the all of their kawaii medical line too! These are actually the pins that kick started my little obsession!

Mimosa Studio Art is a new favorite of mine, I saw them at my last con and they have some of the CUTEST pastel pins I’ve ever seen. Their designs are super original and cute and I can’t wait to wear my little shark pins.

Cute, pastel, and sassy. Pretty much me.

A local shop that I love sells these pins made by Hand Over Your Fairy Cakes! They make some of the snarkiest and cutest pins out there, with tons of kick butt sayings and cute colors and glitter! I love anything with snark, and these are about as perfect as they come.

Unique Timepieces from Jord – Review + Giveaway

I was gifted this watch by Jord in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are exclusively my own. Thank you!

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for $100 off your own Jord Wooden Watch here!

It seems like around now, I’m pretty much constantly changing my style up, trying to find what’s truly me, but for the most part, I am attached to my bracelets and watches. I’m one of those people who tends to feel a little too naked without my jewelry, and I know there are a fair amount of people with me, right?

So, naturally, when Jord reached out about reviewing one of their watches, I was pumped. I’ve seen these little beauties everywhere, and I was super excited to see if they really stood up to the hype that I had seen surrounding them. I can tend to be a bit of a skeptic, especially when it comes to jewelry or timepieces, because quality is everything and then some.

My Watch – Jord’s Frankie in Zebrawood and Champagne

Jord
She’s seriously a pretty watch.

I received the Frankie style of watch in Zebrawood and Champagne, which is a gorgeous watch that really pairs with just about anything in my closet. The Zebrawood and Champagne option really works well as a neutral, so you are able to easily stack your watch with your bracelets without worrying about them clashing. I like to wear a lot of colors, and this watch pairs really well with them all. I really fetches all the compliments for you.

When you invest in pieces, you want to know that they are going to last. There’s nothing more heartbreaking than falling in love with a piece and then having it break or get worn. When I received my watch, I was more than a little concerned to see how my watch would hold up to my day to day activities. I’m not always the most graceful of beings, so I need a sturdy watch, or disaster will ensue. My watch needs to stick with me through thick and thin.

Jord Review – The Wear Test

During my little wear tests, I found that my Jord watch was lighter than other watches that I have worn, and more comfortable on my wrist. While it does have a larger face, it didn’t feel heavy or cumbersome like some might think, and really was easy to wear all day. Some watches can get uncomfortable after a while, but I didn’t find this to be the case, even with the larger face. A much welcome surprise to me!

Compared to my other watches, I really think that my Jord wooden watch is quickly approaching the favorite spot, just because it’s the most unique piece that I currently have. The neutral tones help me to wear it often, which is another definite plus. I have some funky pieces, but they only can be worn from time to time, but I look forward to wearing my watch more days than not this year!

My watch with some of my favorite bracelets!
