While looking over the JORD website this quote really stuck with me and I wanted to share it with all of you.

Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.

I couldn’t agree more and this Dover Koa & Black Skeleton Face Wood Watch by Jord exemplifies this!

One of the most beautiful details of Jord watches are the display of the mechanics. I love that I visually know what makes my watch tick. The inner assembly of Jord pieces say just as much as the outer assembly does, intricate yet simple. The details of the movements are mesmerizing and adds to what makes your watch a unique work of art.

I find wood watches to be the best conversation pieces. When I wear mine people want to know who made it and where it came from and always comment on how much they love them! If you have been thinking about getting a wood watch check out the Men’s and Women’s collections!

If you love what you see, I have some amazing news!  I have partnered up with JORD for a giveaway for my readers.  One winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to spend on their own JORD watch!  It gets better!  Everyone who enters will receive a $25 gift certificate to JORD!  So either way just by entering you win!  Just click on the link below to enter!

You’ve probably seen Violet Ray’s fashionable bags at DSW, Francesca’s, at Target, or maybe even Instagram. When I first started blogging some of my favorite bloggers had Violet Ray bags and I always loved how on point and trendy they were! My first thought when seeing their bags is that, they look expensive!!! Myself and my wallet were very relieved to discover that they aren’t! Aside from being affordable and gorgeous, Violet Ray does not disappoint with the quality and construction of their bags! From the material to hardware the quality is so good!

I chose the Skylar Tote in the color charcoal because I loved the faux suede and the detailing of the stitching! I’m a sucker for details and their bags always have stylish and unique details you just can’t find anywhere else!

Some of our friends from our CrossFit gym competed in the Everyday Warrior competition in Salem last weekend! It was so much fun to watch! They did amazing and supported a great cause as well! I was worried about bringing Porter (I envisioned tantrums and lots of whining), but he did great and had so much fun!

This weekend John and I are going to the coast for birthday! I’m so excited for a day away with him! The possibility of maybe getting to sleep in feels like Christmas in January!

Hope everyone is doing great in this new year!

So, there is a reason why everyone and their mother are talking about Lularoe! These clothes are insanely comfortable!

At first, I didn’t realize that there was more than just leggings. In case you don’t know, they have; dresses, tops, long cardigans, and skirts. I’m so impressed with the fit of this Amelia dress, I don’t know if I’ve ever worn something that is so flattering yet crazy comfortable. I want to get my legs in a pair of their leggings! My brother’s girlfriend has a pair and even he was like, “You have to feel these things!!” Lol. They were so soft. I don’t think I would ever want to take them off!

My friend Stacey who gifted me this dress has a little Lularoe boutique in the salon she works in and they are always doing giveaways and special flash sales so I’ll link the information below to their Facebook page! For reference I am wearing a size small in the Amelia dress and it retails for $65!

My mom and nephew left after New Year’s, we miss them so much!  The weather was so bad their train was delayed for four hours! Thankfully they made it home safely. We’ve had so much snow and freezing rain I feel like I haven’t left the house in weeks. The roads are all clear now so I can finally go grocery shopping! Woo-Hoo!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

How was everyone’s Christmas and New Years?! Ours was wonderful! My mom and nephew got here Christmas afternoon and got to visit for two weeks! It’s been so fun to have them here! John and I have had two date nights in one week! Any of you with children know that’s an amazingly rare occurrence!

I went to brunch with a couple of my blogger friends, which was the perfect time to wear my new 7 Charming Sisters jewelry! These ladies have created a series of seven different lines of jewelry, each designed for individual style and taste! I love the support these seven women have for each other! Being an advocate for women supporting women, I will always give my business to companies that lift one another up and work together!

As a caretaker of two autistic boys my favorite thing about this company is their commitment to help those with disabilities find jobs. Many of their employees have intellectual disabilities and are given the opportunity to work in their studio handcrafting the very jewelry sold on their site! This alone is enough for me to continue to support 7 Charming Sisters and all they stand for!

I chose the Bring the Fierce Necklace from Jennifer’s collection and The Diplomat Ring from Donalda’s collection! I love the choker like look to this necklace! Along with being a statement piece, the shape is what caught my eye! Oh my gosh, this ring!! I’m a sucker for anything turquoise, so naturally there was no competition once I saw this beauty!
