It is crazy to think that it is 2016 already. What a year it has been; from moving into our farmhouse, to getting new jobs, and then starting our new endeavor – Hazel Oak Farms. It has been crazy, but that is the way we like it… BUSY! Christmas time this year was super busy too, as we attended 5 family Christmas celebrations all across Iowa totaling close to 600 miles of driving!
Although we don’t like to put an emphasis on gift-giving this time of year, we do still like to treat each other with a little something every now and then. If we are going to buy gifts, then we like to support small businesses. I stumbled upon this small business while browsing through Instagram.
KOCHIBA is a new, watch brand. Located in Scotland, they make wrist watches out of wood. That’s right, WOOD. Obviously we love anything made out of wood, but when I first saw these watches I was blown away! KOCHIBA creates something more than just a watch, they create art!
I got Melissa the Laro model. It has an Egyptian Blue watch face on a Black Sandalwood frame. The timepiece has beautifully contrasting colors and work perfectly with her style.
She loves it, and we just had to share this company with everyone. Go check out their website and make sure to follow them on Instagram! www.kochibanation.com @kochibanation.
Melissa found these two, cool pieces of jewelry at Francesca's. She scored the beautiful vest at J. Crew. She found this nice paisley top at Von Maur.
