7 things he’d like to see under the tree

My husband recently moved to an office job after almost 7 years in the field as an electrician, so his Christmas list is a lot different this year! Here’s a list of some of the things he’d like to see under the tree:what he'd like to see under the tree

1. ThinkGeek Annoy-a-tron Prankster Pack
The best part about being in an office is the pranks… and this is a classic. They’ve changed the design but he still wants to reek some havoc with it.

2. Phillip’s Beer
Bobby is a beer geek, and Phillip’s is one of his favourite brands – even though he’s been working his way through the 2015 advent calendar… I know he’d love to see more under the tree.

3. Video Games
I don’t think there has been a year where I haven’t gotten him a video game, top of the list this year is Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

4. Cuisinart 14-piece Japanese Knife Set
We have been using the same knife set for a decade now, and he’s been dropping hints for months that he wants a new one.

5. Graphic T-Shirts
I’ve made him donate a ton of old shirts, and his closet is looking a bit bare… I know he’d love these three.

6. Desktop Golf
Perfect for long conference calls or when you just need a break from staring at the computer screen!

7. JORD Delmar in Dark Sandalwood & Blue Carbon
The gift I am most excited about! Bobby has been wanting one ever since mine arrived a few months ago… I know that he is going to love it! Just like mine it came in a beautiful embossed wooden box with a slide-off lid, the dark sandalwood is the perfect colour for him, and the blue carbon face is gorgeous! I can’t wait until Christmas!

jord cora purpleheart & mother of pearl watch

jord cora purpleheart & mother of pearl mani mondayYesterday was Thanksgiving so I am doing my #manimonday on a Tuesday this week. This manicure was inspired by one of the prettiest things I have ever put on my wrist – the JORD Cora Purpleheart & Mother of Pearl wood watch.

I’ve been staring at this watch for months, so when I was offered the opportunity to review it I literally squealed with delight. Even the packaging is beautiful – it came in an adorable embossed wooden box with a slide-off lid, revealing the stunning Cora wood watch on a display pillow… which my daughter quickly took to use as a seat cushion.

The watch is very light – I have had a lot of people ask to look at it over the past few weeks and it is almost always the first comment. The face is made from sapphire glass which is extremely scratch resistant, and the mother of pearl face has 8 Swarovski crystals around the dial and a small display window so you can see the inner workings. For any watch geeks out there, the watch is powered by a SEA-GULL ST6103K, it is self-winding and the power reserve is 36 hours. I’ve only had to re-set it once when I didn’t wear it for a weekend. You can see the movement through the back display as well, and I would be lying if I said I haven’t spent time sitting and shaking it to watch the self-winding at work.

I was a little concerned that it would be bulky – but it fits my wrist perfectly and this matches almost everything in my closet beautifully. It also compliments my wedding ring set which is typically the only other standard piece of jewelry I wear.

For my JORD Cora Purpleheart & Mother of Pearl inspired manicure – I used OPI Midnight in Moscow on my thumb, index and pinkie fingers, and C&E Snowdrop topped with China Glaze Platinum Pearl on my ring and middle fingers. I used crystals from the KISS Salon Secrets Luxe Accents nail kit and topped it all with Essie’s Matte About You.
