They shield your feet, make you feel real neat
They cushion your shoes, take away the blues
With some buttons and thread, you can give them both heads
Need a holder for your phone? It’s already sewn
If you need to drain rice, a sock will suffice
Having grapes for lunch? A sock can carry a bunch
Put one on each ear, winter holds no fear
Absorb your tears when you weep, as you go to sleep

My review of the WeWood Date watch is the post that consistently drives the most traffic to this here domain. Didn’t plan it that way, but there we are. The WeWood folk got in touch recently to ask me to try out another model. This is a quick look at it; for a more in-depth look at WeWood, check out my earlier review.
This time I tried the WeWood Jupiter. It’s a dual dial affair with a more modern feel than the Date. It’s probably the WeWood that would appeal to the kind of folk who like things like Tokyoflash watches, although the Jupiter does have the slight advantage of actually allowing you to tell the time without making your brain jump through hoops.
The Jupiter flaunts the WeWood brand a little more than my other watch. It’s in a nice subtle way though, with the brand name below the face and a little ‘WW’ logo above it.
Over to my official photographer now, who I shall be firing imminently.

Brrr! It’s cold out there! If you’re anything like the team here at Stuart Waterman Towers, nothing warms your winter-ravaged heart like a collection of cuties oozing hot warm hunkiness into your eyes. In which case – stay reading, because have we got a treat for you!
You might think man-foxes only started to exist when R-Gos strutted out of his mum’s womb, but listen up, girls. It turns out swoonsome chaps have been out there tickling loins for at least seventy years!
Take this collection of black and white beef on show during our recent trip to Hastings Fisherman’s Museum. These dishermen were breaking shells – and hearts – before you’d even sipped your first babyccino!
Ready to climb onboard our totty trawler?

My review of some Marks and Spencers boxer shorts went down rather well on The Twitter, so I might as well preserve it here before M&S nobble my account or something. Click the image below to see the whole review embiggened.

When I was umming over whether to indulge in my purchase of a WeWood watch (which I spotted at jorgandolif.com, via Katie Lee’s Tumblr) I was frustrated that there weren’t many reviews online that went beyond press release levels of detail. So I thought I’d “fill” that “niche” in case anyone else goes a-searchin’.
I don’t like status symbolic, wrist-obscuring watches whose faces are bigger than my own actual face. The main reason for this is that I’m the owner of puny girl wrists, and I don’t really need them to look any punier or girlier.
However, I have been looking for a new watch that possesses a modicum* of funkiness for a while.
(*”Modicum” in this context: enough funk for it to look “a bit different”; not so much that you need to apply a new set of mental processes to read the time.)
When I encountered WeWood watches – elegant unisex timepieces crafted from actual wooden wood – I had to immediately weigh up the pros and cons of shelling out for a piece of bark to wear on my wrist.
3. Face not bigger than my actual face
4. “Environmentally friendly”, in that they’re made from reclaimed floorboards and the company supposedly (I mean, definitely) plants a new tree for each watch sold
1. Likelihood that there’s probably a rather good reason watches haven’t been manufactured from wood for the last forever
2. Actually, con no.1 is probably worth 2 points
3. Wackiness factor; if I met someone wearing a wood watch I would almost definitely sneer inwardly, if not outwardly. Unsure whether sneer would come from a place of jealousy or from the place that sees me grimace at females who struggle around with impractically large handbags
4. Increased risk of wrist fire
In the end, pros 1 & 2 predictably held out over flimmy flammy practical concerns.
