A Great New Find: JORD Wood Watches

JORD-Maple-Wood-Watch

Sometimes, as a blogger, its rough to find awesome items that not every single blogger has. I think we all get sucked into the Instagram world where we want every tiny thing we see and then we all post about the same things. Guilty as charged. That’s why, when I find something exceptionally unique to talk about I get all giddy inside:) When JORD wood watches contacted me and asked if I would review one of their watches I jumped at the chance. I had never seen a watch made out of wood, and was intrigued. After browsing the site for a while, I fell in love with the Ely watch in the maple finish. I thought that it would best match most things that I already own and I have been loving it so far! As I had hoped, it matches pretty much everything and I have been wearing it non stop!

JORD watches are handcrafted from natural woods like maple, bamboo, and Sandalwood, which I think is pretty cool in itself, and then on top of it the glass is a scratch proof glass. This is perfect for me, since I tend to scratch the face of every watch I ever get! I love that they use sustainable resources from around the world and then make them right here in the good old U S of A! I also love that it isn’t as heavy as some metal watches I have owned. It also doesn’t clank against my bangles and bracelets:) #fashionbloggerproblems

JORD watches are also available for men, and would make a great Father’s Day gift! Especially for that Dad who has everything already. I bet you he doesn’t have a wooden watch! I’ll be keeping this on my Father’s Day list for sure! Which watch is your favorite?

End Of Weekend Blues

Bright colors- summer outfit inspiration

The weekends really do go by FAR too quickly these days. Every Sunday night, I sit on the couch with Wes, look at the clock and realize that it is 9:00 on a Sunday night. That’s when the whining starts. “Whyyyyyy? Why is it Sunday night already?!” I really think that all weekends should be 3 days long like next weekend will be. Two days just isn’t long enough to get everything I want to do done. <sigh> Even if they were 3 days long, I’m sure I would find some way to still complain that they weren’t long enough…lol! This one seemed exceptionally short though, probably because we stayed out too late at the neighbors house on Friday night and really screwed up our sleep schedule. I hate waking up late on the weekend, I feel as though I have wasted most of my day. Well, even though I didn’t get as much time as I wanted to this weekend, I still go some pretty cute outfits in:)Coral and Cobalt Outfit Inspiration Cobalt top with statement necklace Bright summer colors Francesca's Coral Skirt with blue blouse Coral skirt with Yellow handbag Coral, Blue, and Yellow Outfit Yellow handbag with gold rivets and bright colored outfit Cobalt top with birds

Shop Similar Skirts:

This outfit is one of my all time favorites. I bought this skirt and top together a year or so ago and have gotten a lot of use out of them! Especially the skirt! I love the comfy material it is made of, and I love the length. Not too short, not too long. Just right:) This necklace has been on repeat lately with tons of my outfits. I love pieces that have a lot of colors in them so that you can wear them with a lot of different outfits, though I don’t want to spend too much money on them since they are usually trendy and not classic. This one was SUPER inexpensive at Sam Moon, I can always justify a statement piece when it’s under $20. Score for Me! How was everyone else’s weekend?

Summer Shoe Essentials: Kushy Foot

*This post was sponsored by Kushy Foot. All opinions are my own and I would never endorse a product that I didn’t already love!*
Lilly for Target Shoes
It’s embarrassing to say, but every summer I get a few really cute pairs of flats (like the ones above), and every fall I have to throw those flats out because they smell like sweaty feet. Yeah, that’s what happens when you don’t wear socks with your flats. They smell. Not only do they smell, but they hurt your feet for the first week you wear them! It’s a never ending cycle that I am always determined to break, but never do….until I found no show socks! Who would have thunk?
Now, I know I have talked about Kushyfoot socks before because I love them, but they have sent me some AWESOME socks this month that are PERFECT for summer. You can wear them with flats, peep toes, and sling backs! Yeah, I know…they have a sock for every kind of summer shoe and it’s great! I got these Lilly for Target espadrilles last month and was so excited to wear them with my new socks. These are the types of shoes that you NEED no show socks with or else you can see them and it looks funny. You can’t even tell that I am wearing socks when I have them on! Not to mention, they have an awesome cushion in them that gives a little extra comfort.
Kushy Foot No Show Socks
Summer is in full swing here in Texas so I have been wearing flats and peep toe wedges for a while now, but all you Northern ladies will have to get on the kushyfoot website and order some socks for all your summer shoes before that hot weather hits!

Fit Friday: How I Lost 13 Pounds in 30 Days

How I lost 13 pounds in 30 days
Before I started the Whole30, I was working out 3-4 days per week. I pretty much ate whatever I wanted, which wasn’t all bad…but it wasn’t all good either. I ate spaghetti squash, but I also ate pizza. I wasn’t consistent. And, although I was working my butt off at bootcamp and the gym 3-5 days per week I was actually gaining weight. I was gaining muscle and all that, but I wasn’t loosing the fat. They really are telling the truth when they say that weight loss is 20% exercise and 80% what you put in to your body.
Now, I know that the Whole30 isn’t supposed to be about loosing any weight, it’s supposed to be about changing your life and your eating habits. Well, for me it’s done both. I have had AMAZING results both physically and mentally. I lost 13 pounds in 30 days. Now, I want to preface by saying that I continued to work out at least 3 times per week…so my results might not be typical if you don’t exercise, but you will STILL see results.
The thing I love the most about the Whole30, it that I have changed the way I think about food. When I go to the grocery store I go around the edges of the store and grab all of the meats and produce first, and then make my way in to the aisles. I read the labels on packaged food. I don’t even have the urge to go get a bag of pasta and some sauce. It has only been a few days since my Whole30 ended, but I can already see that I have much more willpower. I say no to sweets and other bad foods that I wouldn’t normally say no to. I’m not saying that I will keep eating entirely Whole30, but I am definitely going to try and keep up most of my new habits. So far, I have been eating mostly Whole30 for lunch and dinner this entire week anyways!
My hope is that I will continue cooking good, healthy meals for Wes and I, and only have a little bit of a “cheat” on the weekend. This also means I will have to choose wisely where I want my one meal to be from:) Gotta pick something good!
To sum it all up, if you are thinking about doing a Whole30, I would highly recommend it. I never thought that I would make it through an entire 30 days without pasta and chocolate, but I did it and I am better off for it. Let me know if you plan to try it out, I would love to connect and help support each other!:)
