"Efflorescence Jewelry is all about offering choices for the NON PIERCED nose. I find innovative ways to create unique nose jewelry for anyone who wishes to decorate and embrace their beautiful NOSE without altering it." The Fashion Hunters were lucky enough to come collaborate with one of the coolest alternative piercing stores. Efflorescence jewellery is perfect for those who are unable to get piercings for various reasons. If you have ever wanted a nose piercing or even a septum piercing without pain or commitment, then Efflorescence have got you covered. We were given two beautiful, silver septum rings to review; one plain ring and my favourite, the filigree double ball septum ring. Both arrived within a week to the United Kingdom and arrived beautifully wrapped in a gold gift box. These commitment free septum rings are sturdy and easy to wear. All you have to do is insert it in your nose and squeeze it firmly to keep it in place. One thing that separates Efflorescence jewellery from all other “faux piercing” stores is their horseshoe faux septum ring design. I have searched many stores that design faux septum rings but none were able to recreate the most popular septum ring style, the horseshoe. Efflorescence horseshoe septum ring was cleverly designed to give you that gnarly look without having to pierce. Packaging and Presentation - A+ Arrived to an international destination within a week. Packaged and gift wrapped safely and beautiful which is ideal to be given as a gift! Designs - A++ I’m giving Efflorescence an A++ for being the only current store to create a horseshoe design! Comfort - A- Super comfy, no sharp ends and irritation free. I love how easy it was to apply and remove. However, it would be awesome if the septum rings were made a little smaller to feel tighter and more secure. Overall, we absolutely dig this store and their designs. Head on over to their Etsy store and become overwhelmed by their amazing collection of non pierced jewellery. https://www.etsy.com/shop/EfflorescenceJewelry
ATK Skate Review
ATK Skate is a clothing and art store out of Ontario. The designs and graphics are all personally designed by Laur who started ATK because of her love for art, street art and skateboarding culture. Laur stands strongly behind animal rights. She personally donates 15% of all profits to various animal right organizations including PETA and the humane society.
We were more than excited to collaborate with ATK Skate on this review! We were sent two items from their growing collection which where the ‘Mountain’ crew neck and the ‘Two Heads’ raglan.
The designs on both clothing were hand drawn and give the item a lovely vibe.
Mountain Crew Neck (left)
We adored the nature inspired theme of this piece and the colour options it came in. We chose the grey crew neck as the colour is more versatile. It’s extremely soft and cosy for those colder days.
We are also quite surprised at how well this washes as the mountain print on the shirt slightly feels like it can be chipped or even destroyed. However, no problems has ever occurred! (Stick to the care guidelines).
This was ordered in a size medium but fits like a large which is why we suggesting down sizing if you are a woman.
'Two Heads' Raglan -
This is my favourite piece out of the entire ATK collection! The design is so unique yet so interesting. I have received many compliments on this. This is probably one of the most comfiest baseball tee’s I have ever owned. The shirt is printed on American Apparel which is great since the clothing is sweat shop free.
ATK Skate is constantly adding new items to their growing collection of ‘wearable art. We adore the fact that they donate 15% of their profits to animal rights organisations. Check out the rest of their amazing range and get 15% off with the code FASHIONHUNTERS1 -

FERAL WATCHES: The Minimalist Review
Feral Watches, a brand that wants you to find a watch that suits you. They believe every Feral Watch is a reflection of who we are. Inspired by sandy toes, salty hair, and sun kissed faces; Feral Watches create fun and feminine timepieces that will add structure to your wild side- by keeping you punctual, you free spirit, you!
We adore watches but personally, we never found any that were adorable and affordable. We also love having clothing and accessories that tell a bit of who we are or explain our style. That’s why we were gifted ‘The Minimalist’ in black. We’re always on the look out for products that have ‘simplistic edge’ and upon viewing the products Feral Watches stock, we were mesmerised by the brilliant designs.
The Minimalist watch had everything. The wrap style of the watch was something we had never seen before and we loved it!! It gave the watch a unique effect unlike other watches I have come across.
The watch face was black and featured white detailing, the Feral Watches logo and the clock hands. We were fascinated by the contrast of the two colors!
The watch is crafted from a soft silicone. I understand that the silicone makes the watch easier to wrap around your wrist but I personally find that silicone isn’t so ideal as it does attract dust to the surface.
One feature that I absolutely love is the adjuster. I find it completely handy that there is so many measurements you could adjust it too. I prefer my bracelets and watches quite snug on my wrists and the adjuster on this watch certainly allows that!
Shipping - A+
Shipped immediately via USPS and arrived to the UK within the said time of a week.
Packaging and Presentation - A+
The watch was presented in a lovely little ‘Feral Watches’ box and wrapped around a ‘mini pillow’. It was packaged safely in bubble wrap and placed in a correct size box that ensured safe delivery.
Design - A
The design of the watch was so simple yet gorgeous which was something that I instantly adored. However, I do think that there should be another material for it than silicone. Other than that, I am very impressed!!
The amazing brains behind Feral Watches have launched a KICKSTARTER campaign to fund an upcoming collection of new watches and beanies! I absolutely love the effect of their photos and of course, their new products!! The new watches look so full of inspiration.
There are many new watches and they look so vibrant and gorgeous. My favourite has to be The Midas watches (click link below to see) and The Jane (featured below).

UdoBuy Wishlist - December 2012
Lately, I have been very impressed with what UdoBuy has been stocking. I am in love with the new selections of gorgeous shoes and bags as well as the amazing clothing. There is so many products that are to die for and are completely suitable for the upcoming winter season.
Black bags are an ultimate necessity in every girls wardrobe. I absolutely adore everything about this blag. The colour, gold hardware and the shape are just pure perfection. My favourite part of this stunning bag has to be that Chanel-esque chain placed across the bag which gives the bag that edgy touch. I also think that the price is pretty decent for a bag of large size. (click link to see more photos)
One of the most baddest shoes ever!! Combat boots are such a classic piece and I love the contemporary twist added to this with the rad spikes at the back.
The print on this is simply beautiful. There are so many sweaters on the site that are similar to this in many colours but I personally like this because it is so simple and I just can’t get enough of black and white clothing.
I was so impressed with the new selection on UdoBuy, I decided to create a winter inspired looking. All the products (except from the NARS lipstick, of course!) are from UdoBuy and are currently available.
