Hey Dolls,
Who doesn't love a good watch? Personally, I feel like a part of me is missing if I'm not rocking a timepiece. My jewelry box contains watches in various finishes and styles - gold, rose gold, silver, ceramic, plastic, and leather - but I have never heard of a wood watch! The folks over at JORD (Swedish for earth, soil, land) changed that! They sent me this beautiful, sustainable, efficient, and simple wood watch and I'm obsessed with it.

Let me be completely honest here, I didn't know what to expect. I mean a wood watch...really? How cute could a wood watch be? But, when I opened the matching wood box that it came in and saw my watch I let out a yelp. It was so lovely, light, and surprisingly stylish.

I chose the Sydney - Maple and Rose Gold (c/o JORD). The light (almost nude) maple wood is perfect for summer and the rose gold face is a gorgeous iridescent bronze-pink. It's over-sized style was custom made to fit my wrist. The face is surrounded by Swarovski crystals and it has chronograph functionality. Ladies, this watch is beyond beautiful!

Y'all know I'm "extra" so I can't just rock a watch, I have to have an arm party! I chose to layer my Sydney watch with matching rose gold bracelets.

I just can't stop looking at it! lol

I will wear my handcrafted (no two are alike), all natural, Eco-friendly, wood watch by JORD with pride. You need to go and pick one out for now!

Hey Dolls,
I'M MOVING! My husband and I found a great apartment in a fun location and I can't wait to decorate it. After changing my mind - no less than a million times - I finally decided on the "theme" of my new decor and took to Google to search for the pieces I would need. 

I'm always on the quest to discover unique and creative decor. During a search one evening I found the site Minted is a marketplace of individual artist. They source creative content from a global community of independent artists, then sell the best content in the form of art, home decor, and stationery, directly to consumers.

I want our new place to be an authentic reflection of us individually and as a family so I was excited to see that some of the pieces from the Minted art collection would represent us perfectly. My husband and I decided to do all black and white wall art. Here are some of my faves from Minted!

 Black and white not your thing? Minted offers beautiful wall art in an array of colors and styles. What I love most is the option to pick the print size and frame style of your choice! You need to go check them out now!

p.s. stay tuned for a post of my new digs when I get it all together (these things take time). Here's a sneak peek...

Hey Dolls,
I recently received 4 product lines from the New Motions Hair Care Line and let me tell you -I'm addicted. The NEW Motions has an updated modern look and improved formulas that offer endless style possibilities without compromising the health of your hair. 

Please, please, please, don't limit yourself to thinking that Motions only works on a certain type of hair. No matter what your hair type or texture may be, these products will have your hair looking the bomb dot com. My daughter and I both use Motions and we have totally different hair textures. My hair is straight in some areas and wavy in others while my daughter's hair is very thick and curly. We both agree that our favorite products are the Motions Active Moisture Lavish Shampoo and Conditioner from the Nourish and Care line because it leaves our hair so soft and moisturized. 

Below are the descriptions for each product line:

1. Treat and Repair is specially formulated for color treated hair.
