currently coveting : commodity fragrances

currently coveting : commodity goods | unruly things

I’ve been obsessing over the fragrances from Commodity for a little while now. the branding is incredible and the scents, with names like Gin, Moss, Book and Tea, are completely intriguing. I love that they handcraft their fragrances using premium ingredients in small batches, leaving more room for attention to detail and perfection. and I especially love that you can test out, every scent from their men’s or women’s collection for only $9.

I was thrilled when Commodity contacted me to ask if I’d be interested in receiving one of their fitting kits to test out their different scents. now, I have to be honest. I am not much of a perfume wearer. I used to be, then for what ever reason I stopped wearing it. then I had a hard time finding a new scent that I loved that didn’t give me a headache. I’ve got a sensitive nose I suppose. but I was up for a challenge and truly loved their concept.

my favorites were Paper, Pinot and Rain, but ultimately I ended up loving a men’s scent the best: Whiskey. it’s warm and inviting, like a good Whiskey drink. I’ve been wearing it every single day and since I’m pregnant, I figured, when you can’t drinking, wear it.

for a limited time, Commodity is offering 55% off their 100ml bottles. that’s one incredible deal, you guys! enter code SOMUCHWIN at checkout.

show me your stack : katie diamond

Unruly Things / Show Me Your Stack :: Katie Diamond

today’s stack comes from a lovely lady whom I really admire, Katie Diamond. I first fell in love with Katie’s jewels back in 2009 and have enjoyed following her progression as a designer. everything she designs is just beautiful! I love the unique and effortless aesthetic in her earrings, her necklaces and of course, her rings. her rings just beg to be stacked!! and here’s what Katie has to say about her own stack…

today my stacks mainly consist of rings from my own line. i usually stick with the same stack for a while and switch it up when i’m designing a new collection.  you can always tell if i’m in love with a style – once i finish that sample it goes right on my finger and i don’t take it off!  my most recent obsession has been the ruby & turquoise combination.  and my favorite ring is the hazel ring, the bottom one on my right ring finger. i’ve been doing some estate jewelry buying recently, both for myself and the website and this ring (and the forthcoming collection) is definitely influenced by my favorite finds.  i love simplicity and i’ve been inspired to create a collection of tiny rings that look sweet on their own or are the perfect addition to an existing stack.

i’ve been wearing my wedding stack for 11 years now it all started with my round brilliant diamond engagement ring and then a year later my husband, david diamond surprised me with the marquise ring that he designed using a stone that was in his family for quite some while.  the other bands are ones that he’s gifted me through our years together.   i switch these up from time to time too…. i think all of us jewelry designers have jewelry addictions so i am probably not alone when i say i have a pretty awesome collection of beautiful rings from other jewelry designers, my travels, and estate sales that i like to wear as well.

just gorgeous, right? Katie would like to extend an incredible discount to UT readers. enjoy 20% off the entire site, excluding the estate section, with code UNRULY. thank you so much Katie!

do you or someone you know have an amazing stack that you’d like to share? submit photos of your ring adorned fingers to hello {at} unruly-things {dot} com.

it’s a…

unruly things : it's a BOY!!

BOY!!! that’s right – brothers! I wanted a special way to announce this little babe and couldn’t think of anything more fun than a bunch of big balloons. so we braved a super windy day and headed to the park for a few pics. at first the news that we were having another little boy was hard. I’d always pictured myself with one boy and one girl. but I can’t say I didn’t have a hunch already that it was a boy even if I’d been holding out for the news of a baby girl. I’ve been getting used to the idea of having two little boys and the more and more I think about it, the more excited I am to be the mama to two wonderfully sweet little boys. plus, I think Wolf will just love having a little brother!

I’m almost 21 weeks pregnant, which means I’m over the hump! hopefully this little guy doesn’t play the waiting game that Wolf did and comes closer to his due date. we’re still looking at mid-September and couldn’t be more thrilled. now to think about names!
