A Valentine’s Day Gift He Will Love & GIVEAWAY c/o Jord Wood Watches

The Infamous Story About A Vacuum

There was this one time where I bought my husband a vacuum for Christmas. A vacuum. Now if I explain the backstory behind it, it would make total sense (at least it did for me! He still brings it up in jest. Often.). Before we had kids and had lots of spare time on our hands, Marcus was really into cleaning his car. He would spend hours every weekend meticulously cleaning his car, inside and out. So newly married little me on a teeny little budget thought that getting him a hand vacuum was brilliant. Imagine my surprise when he couldn’t control his laughter on our second Christmas as a married couple! Needless to say that I am a little leery when giving him gifts…

Let’s talk Valentines Day. While I am a huge fan of love and love to celebrate it, there is a part of me that gets anxious about buying a gift for my husband (I mean, you can imagine why…). He has everything he wants, and if he does actually need something, he buys it for himself. Consider this girl stumped. Until. UNTIL. This watch. My man doesn’t collect things, but he does have a nice little collection of watches. So I figured I would add to his collection, this time with wooden watches, which is totally different than anything he has!

Wooden Watches

Jord contacted me at the perfect time before my Valentine’s Day gift-giving slump hit. Have you seen their watches? They are superior quality wooden watches and some of the coolest designs I’ve seen, and for a great price! They are unique and personal, most of which you can have engraved with your husband’s initials or name, or even a little love note (perfect Valentine’s Day gift, amiright?!). Marcus loves the watch! It is so unique and very light, so a much different feel than any other watch he has. I would say I (finally) got a slam dunk for gift giving this holiday!

 

Marcus is wearing the Frankie Zebrawood with the Navy face. Sexy, right? If you are interested in this watch you can check it out here!

You can check out their entire collection for men here. They also have a collection for women too! Check it out here. I’m a little sad I don’t have one myself now… Also, side note darling husband if you are reading this: I just noticed they sell an apple watch band. But I suppose I need an apple watch first… 😉

GIVEAWAY TIME!

Who wants to win a gift card towards a JORD WATCH?! Obviously that was rhetorical. Anyways, Jord was generous enough to offer up a $100 gift card to one lucky winner! There will be one lucky winner, but all entries will receive a 10% off discount code once the giveaway is over. You can enter by clicking here. It will just take a second, promise! Easy! Contest ends 2/11/18.

Great (& Inexpensive!) Blanket Scarf Roundup

Blanket scarves are something that initially overwhelmed me, until I tried it out for myself.  Once I figured out how to wear them, they quickly became one of my favorite cold weather accessories! For someone who runs cold but also has to chase around (aka keep from committing suicide) three toddlers, sometimes heavy layers aren’t ideal. Blanket scarves are a great way to add some texture and color to an outfit!

There are a lot of tutorials to show you how to wrap them if it is a new item for you (see here and here – also total sidenote, but these girls are also great ones to follow!). Most of these are under $10 and I own (and love!) one of them! Now to choose which one to add to my collection…

Top Left This looks so cozy! And the colors could be tied into so many outfits.

Top Center I love the colors on this! The maroon is perfect for fall/winter wardrobes.

Top Right Sometimes simple is better! I love the texture on this and this is a perfect neutral.

Middle Left This is the one I have and love and wear all the time!

Middle Center I reeeally love this one! I love the camel and black combo.

Middle Right This is really similar to another blanket scarf that I have and wear all the time! The pale ocean blue is gorgeous.

Lower Left Another good, simple scarf! This would be so great with a holiday outfit. Great texture!

Lower Center No, this one I need! The colors in this are amazing!

Lower Right OK. This one. I definitely need this one. A plaid doesn’t get much better than this!
