Send A Raven

One to watch..

Send A Raven

Send A Raven

is Send A Raven, a blog dedicated to clothing and style for men. Peter Evans was a Guest Hunter a few weeks back, and obviously we like what he’s doing. He snaps away on the streets of London, capturing images of stylish people. But Peter also breaks it down even further than just street trends, he features product and brand reviews, insider interviews, icons and the female view. Guys (and ladies too!) if it’s not already, then Send A Raven needs to be on your radar.

Big Ben Watch

Came across..

Big Ben Watch (Birch), $95

Big Ben Watch (Birch), $95

this on The Upper Echelon and was immediately drawn to the fact that it’s a total update on a timeless piece. The Big Ben Wood Series has a traditional oversized 48MM watch, with a wooden bezel and all wood dials.  It comes with interchangeable bands (made from wood, smooth silicone and black stitched leather) and is available at Flud Watches in Birch, Oak, Redwood, and Black Wood. An ideal way to switch things up and add a bit of edge to everything from jeans and your basic white tee to a suit.

ILIA Lip Conditioners

An assortment..

ILIA Lip Conditioners

ILIA Lip Conditioners

of colors that make a beautiful palette for any season. It’s hard to find the right lipstick shade and ILIA seems to have gotten it right. With a simple collection of six different shades, this lip conditioner is an organic balm, lipstick and gloss all in one. And depending on your mood, you can go subtle or bold all from the same tube of lipstick. So these colors may just become part of your uniform.

Sabi

A friend of a friend..

Sabi

Sabi

recently introduced me to Sabi, a 2-part hair remover system that’s easy to use and is way less harsh than a lot of products out there. It’s fairly new to the market and was inspired by the naturalist culture of the companies’ partners in Norway. The goal was to create a solution from potent plants and herbs that not only gently removes hair, but also delays re-growth. As a result, Sabi is fortified with aloe, licorice and pomegranate extracts which slow down growth. So it’s made from better ingredients, is easy to use, doesn’t cause any annoying irritation, and lasts up to 21 days.. why wouldn’t you try this?

Pinhole Press

Finding the right..

Pinhole Press

Pinhole Press

decor for your walls is tough. I posted about wallpaper last week, and I’m also loving the look of framed photographs as art too. I came across Pinhole Press while reading A Cup of Jo a while back, and figured I’d give them a shot. First I ordered the brag books, which made beautiful gifts for mother’s day. This year I had some family photos framed, and gave them as Christmas gifts. I couldn’t have been happier with the quality, customer service and the ease in creating the products. Pinhole Press does not disappoint. In fact, my experience has been pretty awesome! Perfect for someone who doesn’t want to do a lot of work, but wants it to look like they did.

Rehabilitated Dishware by Sarah Cihat

Artist..

Rehabilitated Dishware by Sarah Cihat

Rehabilitated Dishware by Sarah Cihat

Sarah Cihat’s Rehabilitated Dishware collection gained recognition in 2003 at the ICFF. The concept is quite smart: all plates are bought at second-hand stores and are then reglazed, refired and redesigned into works of art using Cihat’s artistic talent and high standards. The finished result is a product that’s way too cool to tuck away in a cabinet. Pretty much a series that’s perfect for a hallway or any wall that needs a little attention.. in a good way.

Style Book

I’ve been feeling..

Style Book

Style Book

a little uninspired as of late, so I stopped in a bookstore for a little pick me up. As I’m flipping through Style Book by Elizabeth Walker, I’m starting to re-discover my excitement for fashion. The collection of photographs are of celebrities and non-celebs alike, and cover all different eras. And much like this one, Style Book will be living on my shelves for years to come. Here are just a few photos I can’t get enough of.. (but really they are all so great – if you get the chance go take a look!)

CUPPOW

Two guys..

CUPPOW

CUPPOW

from Massachusetts took a canning jar and designed a leak free lid to turn an everyday glass into a travel mug. It’s called the CUPPOW, an inexpensive, durable and super easy to clean alternative to the paper cup and plastic lid or the typical travel mug options. The CUPPOW is BPA free, 100% recyclable and made in the USA. The founders, Joshua Resnikoff and Aaron Panone both use the product, a sign it does what it claims. A good sign indeed.
