Orla Kiely Bundles at Unique and Unity

Unique and Unity has created a few special bundles featuring Giant Pear and Wallflower printed items from Orla Kiely's melamine collection. Check out each specially priced set below. I'm quite interested in the tumblers set because I think they're so cute! Plus they're melamine, so in case my three-year-old son drops them, they won't break :)





Orla Kiely Gift Ideas for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner! Below are my Orla Kiely picks for Mother's Day gift ideas :)

I got my first Zip Shopper just a few months ago, and I have become obsessed with this style. They're just so roomy and fit easily over my shoulder. Plus, the matte laminated canvas makes these bags pretty low-maintenance and easy to clean. Perfect for any mom with young children!

I always like to keep my purses organized so I rely on zip pouches like this to hold my small essentials. Plus, if you switch purses a lot (like me), then you can easily transfer all the things you normally carry from one bag to another.

I prefer small wallets to larger ones, and this one is just so cute!

Orla Kiely Charm was launched earlier this year, and jewelry is always such a great gift for any occasion. Check out some of my favorites below.

Haul + Review: Orla Kiely Caddies

Orla Kiely Caddies in Multi Flower, Pear, and Tulip

I purchased mine from Century 21, but they are also available at Amara.

Each caddy comes in a Stem-printed cardboard box, which can be reused.

This Tulip print is my favorite!

They are also wrapped in Stem-printed tissue paper.

Each one is about 7 3/4" tall and 5 1/2" across. They are a pretty good size so they can be used to hold a variety of items. And as with all Orla Kiely items, these feel well-made and sturdy.

They are not dishwasher-safe, but you can hand wash them.

I like these caddies a lot more than the canisters because they have a twist-off lid, which is a lot easier to remove.

Haul + Review: Orla Kiely Poppy Watch


Here's the adorable packaging it came in - a long box with the Giant Abacus print with an outer sleeve.

The inside is lined with the Stem print.

And underneath is a care and instruction booklet.

This was one of my favorite watch designs because I love the quatrefoil face and the pinky tones - its overall look is so pretty and dainty, which I thought would pair well with dressier outfits. And it's hard to tell from this photo, but it also has a black Stem printed face. There are no numbers or even little ticks so it can be difficult to tell the time quickly.

There is rose gold-toned hardware and two orange straps, which I thought added a nice contrast.

The underside of the strap is embossed with the Flower Spot print.

And as you can see, the strap is made of leather.

One of the things that concerned me about this watch is how delicate it looked and felt. It just looked so tiny on my wrist (I know it doesn't appear that way in this photo, but in real life it does) and overall I felt like I'd have to baby this watch so it wouldn't break or get scratched. However, it's been holding up nicely and I haven't really been babying it too much when I wear it. I just love how girly and dainty this watch looks - I've worn it with dressy and casual outfits, and it pairs well with both.
