Orion Hellcat Automatic Watch in Red

REVIEW: Orion Hellcat Watch

I must admit that I find myself missing the Orion Hellcat. I spent about 2 weeks with the burgundy-dialed variant and truly enjoyed every minute with it. The size and proportions of the watch are pretty much perfect in my opinion and I think this design will speak to a wide range of watch enthusiasts. Nick at Orion set out to create a pilot watch with the Hellcat, but I think he did something more than that.

Tallac House Lip Balm holder in Packaging

REVIEW: Tallac House Lip Balm Holder

Tallac House set out to make a perfect lip balm holder and they hit the nail on the head; I absolutely love it. It does everything the description claimed it would do and it was made really well too. My lip balm was always with my keys and kept in perfect condition. Not to mention its really inexpensive, at only 12.50 it literally pays for itself after preventing me from buying 20 lip balms a year. Super convenient and such a cool product!
