Unique wood watches by Jord, a must have accessory

Hi there,

I first heard about Jord watches on Instagram. It really intrigued me, a watch made of wood, it’s so unique! They look so pretty and versatile.

I was excited to have partnered with Jord watches. When I received my watch it came in a cedar wooden box that smelled amazing! The storage box has a draw and plenty of room for all of the accessories. It included extra links, 2 cloths and finishing oil. Shown below are all the items the watch came with.

These watches come in all different styles and sizes. I chose the Frankie series watch #35. Since blue is my favorite color it was a no brainer.

Here is an up close picture of the watch I chose. We just had a snow storm prior to when I received the watch. You would think wood would be rough on your arm but it is so soft that it doesn’t hurt at all. Sometimes I forget it’s on, it’s that light! Another thing that makes this watch special is the clasp to close it. It’s so unique and easy to close it by myself. It really is a great watch, you won’t be disappointed.

Here is the link to this watch:

Frankie watch 35

This watch is made from zebrawood and has a navy face. It is splash proof but should not be submerged in water. I think the prices are reasonable for a custom made wood watch.

Here is the link to all of Jord’s unique watches: Jord watches. Take a look at the men’s and women’s watches.

They also offer a one year from date of purchase warranty.

Jord also offers engraving their unique wood watches and/or their cedar watch box making a great present for a loved one.

Jord is offering my followers a chance at winning $100 off one of their watches! Listed is the link below:

This contest will close on 4/8/2018 at 11:59pm CST. Good luck!

Hope you enjoyed this review of Jord watches, why not give them a try!

Hi there,

I hosted my first Sip and Style at the Loft! I was so excited for this event. It was held at the Paramus Park mall in New Jersey. I invited my friends and family. The staff at the Loft couldn’t be any nicer and easier to work with. I was couldn’t wait to see their spring line, it just came out. When I first got to the Loft, it was all set up with snacks and drinks. Perfect combination eating, drinking and shopping! I love all three.

Next the guests started to arrive. It was great to see everyone and share this special night with them. We were ready to start shopping!

Midori Linea – New York fashion week event

Hi there,

I was so excited when I got invited to my first New York fashion week event for the Midori Linea jewelry line! This is a big deal to me. I started blogging in May 2017. It really has been taking off and I’m so happy that all my hard work is paying off.

This event was held at the W hotel in downtown Manhattan. My first thought was what to wear and then who to invite. I decided to wear a black lace dress because it was a big event and it was a fun night out. I invited a great friend because she is the one friend who has supported me from the start.

This event was on a Friday night. I worked during the day then we headed into the city. It was on the 5th floor of the W hotel. The room we were in was really cool. Here is a picture of the living room bar area and it had panoramic views of the city.

When we got there I met my first blogger babe Ashley. Her Instagram handle is AshleyJennany. She is super sweet and has great fashion style.

After chatting with Ashley my friend and I got magical galaxy makeovers. The makeup artists added some shimmer and shine to our faces. Magical galaxy was the theme for the event.

Since we were the first 30 people to arrive we got a gift. It is the Montana Cecelia bracelet. The gem is such a pretty color.

Next we met Sakura who is the designer of this jewelry line. She was really nice and explained to us how she got started and then showed us some of her beautiful pieces. All her jewelry is handmade.

I had my eye on this Anya choker. It looked so pretty on and it is lightweight.

I then met another blogger babe Nicole. Her Instagram handle is stayathomestylist. We are both from New Jersey! She also has great style and is so sweet. We chatted for a bit.

The room was dimly lit so unfortunately my pictures are darker than usual.

It really was a great night meeting some of these ladies I interact with on a daily basis. They all have amazing style, are sweet and up lifting.

The last blogger babe I met is Tammy. Her Instagram handle is houseofleoblog. She is from New Jersey as well! I love her fashion style and she’s so sweet too.

My friend and I hung out for a little while longer before we headed out to eat and then home.

This night was a great experience and I really enjoyed myself. I was honored to be invited and grateful to meet such wonderful ladies. Thank you to Sakura for creating this beautiful jewelry line and it was a pleasure meeting you. I wish you all the best.

Here is a link to her website Midori Linea. Take a look at her beautiful handmade jewelry.

Ruffles and more

Hi there,

Well here in New Jersey we are in the middle of a bomb cyclone! I never heard of this term something new to me! It is a snow storm with a lot of wind. So needless to say I’m staying warm inside and taking the pictures in here. I hope where ever you live it is warmer than here.

I’m loving ruffle tops these days. The ruffles could be on the shoulder, arm, across the front or back of the top. It gives the sweater or top a feminine detail.

I paired this sweater with a black pair of leggings and black riding boots since it’s so cold out! You could also pair this with jeans for a more casual look.  The purse I’m wearing is a Christmas present from Santa!

Here is a closer look. This bracelet I have on is a wrap bracelet that attaches by magnet. It’s very easy to get on by myself.

If you are interested in this look, here are the link below for these items.

Shop this look…

Parklane Jewelry -Necklaces

Hi there,

I got together today with Helen a Park Lane jewelry stylist/director. I had so much fun trying on new pieces of her collection, I wanted to share these with you!  I paired them with some of my outfits. We also tried layering necklaces. You can dress these up or down. They are versatile for every occasion.

This one was one of my favorites!! I’m all for anything blue. My birthday is in September so I’m partial to blue since Sapphire is my birthstone! This is the nightingale necklace.

This next necklace is a genuine stone that comes in a few different colors: blue, white, pink or green. I happen to like the white one. This is the sunstone necklace.

We layered this next necklace. The first one is the sacred eye. The long one is the blushing necklace. They both have crystals in them and the chains are rose gold in color.

I really like how delicate this next one is. It’s 3 necklaces in one. It is called the Arianna. The beads are made out of glass. It light in weight.

This last necklace is called Sheen. It is made of crystals and the pendant is adjustable. The back of the crystals have gold, rose gold and silver colors.

If you are interested in any of these pieces or would like to look at Park Lane jewelry here is a link: http://parklanejewelry.com/cart/start/id/58994/fsib/239307-9

They have good quality jewelry and great prices! Take a look!
