Give the gift of time this holiday season- jord wood watches



Good morning and happy December!

I’m currently sitting here curled up on my sofa dreaming of our upcoming snowy North Carolina adventure…wishing Florida would get some seriously cooler weather in time for Christmas!

Ok, so by show of hands…who here has finished all of their Holiday shopping? Anyone? Anyone?…yeah me neither…

This week I’m excited to share about my partnership with JORD Wood Watches and at the end of the post there is a great coupon code for you to use towards your purchase!



If you are struggling to come up with gifting ideas for your loved one, JORD offers beautifully crafted wooden watches for men and women that are sure to last a lifetime.

So, my “go-to” outfit nowadays is a pair of jeans, graphic T, and (if it’s cool) my favorite military jacket. It’s comfy, easy to run after the kids in, and I can glam it up with jewelry and accessories.


One of the features about JORD that I love most is that the watches scream minimalism but at the same time have the perfect amount of detail. Take the watch that I am wearing for example, the Frankie Zebrawood and Champagne. I have a slight obsession with all things gold right now. This watch is the perfect accessory to pull an outfit together.

And because of it’s simplicity, it’s easy to add some bangles beside it and create an arm party!

JORD currently uses 13 different types of woods to craft their watches. Sustainable consumer? JORD lists where they source the materials, the type of grain and finish used, and even the tree hardness and height! And since each ring of wood is as unique as a thumbprint, each watch is truly one of a kind!

The watch itself is made 100% out of the wood and surprisingly is very light! It makes wearing it effortless.



Now let’s get to the really good stuff!

Let’s talk shipping. Shipping is FREE worldwide!

JORD is offering my readers 25% off your entire purchase! The biggest discount they’ve had thus far, so don’t miss out! You can access the code HERE *The code expires 12/19/2017*

Giving the gift of time? Here’s the link for JORD Men’s Wooden Watches and JORD Women’s Wooden Watches.

The only thing that I wish JORD’s watches would do is turn back time. How is this guy almost a year old?



Thanks for reading! If you decide to invest in one of JORD’s beautiful and unique wooden watches, I promise that you won’t be disappointed.

Fall Favorites Roundup

Happy Fall Y’all!

Just because Halloween is over doesn’t mean the Fall fun stops!

I’ve rounded up a few of my current favorite things right now that scream FALL.

…I think I’m screaming Fall in hopes that the Florida weather hears me…*sigh*



  1. “Pumpkin Roll” Candelles Candle : I almost always have a Fall candle burning from October-December. Candelles makes some of my favorite natural soy wax candles! Pumpkin Roll is one of my favorites, but they have a few other delicious Fall scents as well!
  2. Orange Felt Letter Board : Is anyone else as obsessed as I am when it comes to these adorable letter boards? They are so fun + I love adding kitschy slogans or quotes on them and having them throughout the house! PS-This one is currently on sale!
  3. Pumpkin Kisses T: Seriously Happy T’s has some of the cutest graphic T’s and pullovers on the market right now! The Pumpkin Kisses, Harvest Wishes T is my favorite. If you’re on Facebook, be sure to join her VIP group to get special discounts. I’m already drooling over her Holiday line!
  4. Fall Lips : L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-matte Liquid Lip in “Cowboy” is the perfect lip color for the season in my opinion! Check it out on a friend of mine here…obsessed!
  5. PSL Please! : My favorite Fall find is Califia Farms Pumpkin Spice Latte Coffee! I have a deep love for a PSL, but unfortunately don’t love the sugar and calories they usually include. *Still trying to get off all that pesky baby weight* Luckily, Califia Farms offers the perfect solution with their Pumpkin Spice Latte made with Almond Milk. No dairy. No soy. All of the delicious Fall flavors!

What are some of your Fall favorites? Comment below with your #1 must have Fall item!

PS- I know I have been MIA the past couple of months. Two Under Two is kicking. my. rear.

But…I’m SO happy to be back and I have so many fun and exciting things that I can’t wait to share with you! Stay tuned. xo

Lunchtime Hack for Moms

This post was sponsored by Tai Pei and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

I’m officially 6 months into being a mom of two under two! While it IS getting a bit easier (Ash and Ever are really starting to interact with each other *swoon*) I am still trying to find that happy place where I am able to take a breath for a minute!

Lunch time is often the craziest in our house. I’m usually running home from a morning at the playground or play date just in time for E & A to both eat lunch and then attempt to lay them down for naps at the same time.

Key word ATTEMPT.

If I do magically get both to fall asleep, after doing a happy dance, I run to do something productive or somewhat relaxing. i.e. take a shower, workout, run on the treadmill in the garage, or actually EAT LUNCH!

Moms, raise your hands if lunch often consists of you eating the scraps your toddler left on his/her highchair!

I have found the perfect mom lunchtime hack! The new Tai Pei Single Serve Entrees!

Each of these entrees is made with real ingredients and without preservatives or anything artificial. The veggies taste so fresh and even have that “crunch factor” when taking a bite! You would never know these came out of the freezer aisle.


If you follow me on Instagram (especially in stories) you’ll see I’ve been trying to eat healthier and workout as much as possible to get all of the baby weight off + some! The thing that I love most about these entrees is that they only range between 400-500 calories per entree and I feel FULL. And these are also perfect for those Friday or Saturday night Chinese takeout cravings!

I purchased the Sweet & Sour Chicken, Beef & Broccoli, Chicken Chow Mein, Chicken Fried Rice, and the Orange Chicken entrees…my favorite being the Beef & Broccoli! All of the entrees are really flavorful and they feature infused rice that adds to the flavor.


The one thing that I would have wished is that they have more chicken/beef in the meat entrees! They use really great sizes of chicken/beef that are flavorful but I wish there were just a few more pieces and less rice. But overall, these are perfect for lunch and dinner and a great serving size.

And it doesn’t get much easier to cook! With the all new packaging it’s as simple as popping the cup into the microwave and voila! You now have yourself a delish, fresh tasting lunch!


Lunch no longer has to be boring with so many budget friendly options to choose from! To locate the nearest freezer section near you that carries Tai Pei entrees, visit here!
