What’s the first thing people notice about you, and what do you love the most about yourself? For me, it’s always been my height, and my sense of style. I’ve always towered above everyone else from the time I was a kid, and while I have faced a lot of bullying and unwanted comments (I still get those!) for it, I love my height and couldn’t be prouder of it! As for my sense of style, my mom had a lot of influence on me, growing up. She’d always pick out the most one-of-a-kind stuff for me to wear, and it became part of who I am.
There’s a few things I’m known for by now, and that is my collection of jackets of every possible kind and material to add personality to my outfits. The second is my love for accessories. I absolutely love collecting different kinds of sunglasses, jewellery, bowties and more! If you follow me on Instagram you must have seen quite a few outfits featuring these.
Recently I discovered Woodgeekstore, and the fact that all their accessories are wooden caught my eye. Such a unique concept, and so much fun to style! The best part though, is that they also customize them for you, with your name, blog name or anything else, carved onto each product. I thought that’s really cool. I’ve always wanted to create my own personal branding. They have a whole range of accessories, from personalized notebooks, customized wooden sunglasses, wooden bow ties and so much more, for both men and women.
This adorable wooden bow tie pairs really well with a button-down shirt, and this is one of my favourite shirts like ever. I’ve worn it in so many ways, from pairing it with a pretty midi skirt, trousers, jeans and jeggings. I can never tire of that bright splash of tomato red peeking out from my outfit.
The jacket – well. When I saw it online, I just knew I had to get it. It’s so one of a kind. The simple elegance of the bowtie makes for the perfect contrast here.
Cateye sunglasses look super chic on just about anyone, and so when I saw these wooden sunglasses, I knew I had to own a pair. I made sure I got something that was totally me in every way – from the style to my blog name carved on to the frame and the pretty wooden case it came in! Here’s where you can order one for yourself. I think it also makes for the perfect gift because personalization always makes something extra special to the person getting it.
Call me old-school, but even though I use Evernote a lot, I still love my notebook and pen for jotting down ideas on the fly. Planning out my blog posts has helped me a lot in the past, and this gorgeous blog planner is just one of the many designs of customized notebooks that Woodgeekstore has! They even engraved my blog logo on to the diary which also comes with a custom pen, making it truly my own. I have started putting down post ideas and calendars into it now every week!
If you’re looking for a way to stand out from the crowd and own one-of-a-kind handcrafted wooden accessories, head to Woodgeekstore right away 🙂 with the festive season coming up I’m sure you’d find this a unique gifting idea too!
