JORD Giveaway!

Hey folks! Meet my newest accessory...The JORD Frankie.

I was never much of a watch wearer until I became a photographer. Actually, scratch that; it wasn't until I needed to know what time it was, so pretty much after I started college. It's come in handy I tell ya, those grown ups know what they're doing when it comes to practicality!

Looking back on my early days of mother hood I wish I wore a watch more often. Why? Well to be completely honest I feel like I missed out on precious moments with my baby because I used my phone as a watch. Any honest mom knows how that ends; it became a distraction. As I was supposed to be spending sweet time nursing my baby, I scrolled my phone instead of staring at my baby's face. Shame on me. Those moments will forever be lost, a mistake I won't be making again! 

I have a watch that my husband got me a few years ago for Christmas, I absolutely love it. However it's a little too fancy for everyday wear, I get nervous I'm going to scratch it or get it wet doing the house work. So you could imagine my excitement when I recieved this beautiful baby JORD. I love it! Who would have thought to make a watch from wood? I mean really, it's so creative I'd love to meet these designers. It's practical and goes with everything. Worn by its self it looks classy and fresh, add a a few bracelets and it becomes arm candy!

Anyway enough of my enthusiasm, what's in it for you? How about $75 towards your own JORD watch!  Yup it's true just enter below! You'll even get a $20 e-gift card just for entering! How could you not?!

Spa Day Give Away!

Us girls need a little break here and there, Amen?  Well guess what, I've got just the place for you! 

I'm the first to admit I don't let my brain turn off. It's constantly running, letting me know all the work I need to get done. But every once in a while, I shove it in a box and ignore it. This day, It was for my first ever facial. 

I was treated like a queen at the Woodhouse, It was complete rest and relaxation the entire time. A foreign concept for mothers...right?

The facilities were beautiful. Every room perfectly manicured and cleaned. 

Everything was so cozy. Each element doing its job in making sure I enjoyed ever moment of my stay!

My facial was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

So relaxing, very professional. I'm usually very uncomfortable doing spa stuff, but not here. I felt completely comfortable the entire time. 

They also have some little goodies all girls love in the gift shop!

My eyes lit up when I saw this stuff! Wish I had it when I was pregnant! 

I purchased this little facial sampler and haven't been disappointed! I especially like the toner included, it's a dream.

They have everything from essential oils to slipper here! You won't be disappointed, I promise.

It's been a quiet month of blogging, or not blogging I should say, work has kept me really busy this month. After Christmas life will go back to normal and I'll get back into the swing of things I promise. In the mean time, I think you all deserve the chance to win a little something special this Christmas!

October BirchBox

I finally did it, I subscribed to Birchbox! This is seriously the greatest thing ever, to whoever had the brilliant idea I hope you're enjoying the rewards of your labor. The woman of the world thank you

Look at all the goodies inside this pretty packaged box, it's like Christmas every month!

If you're not familiar with how it works, each month you receive a box full of samples from different name brand suppliers of all things feminine. When you sign up you answer a few questions based on your interest, and they package you a pretty little box that comes right to your house.

So these little wonders...two thumbs up! I have dry, frizzy, damaged hair so I need good shampoo and conditioner. This can get rather costly so I'm always looking for something that lathers well and doesn't require me to use a handful each time I wash my hair. This stuff lathers really well,  it's made with natural ingredients, smells like lavender, and left my hair feeling great.  I'd give it a 8 out of 10, I really like it.





This stuff is a little miracle worker. I can't blow dry my hair without a tamer, a protectant, and a conditioning cream, but with this I didn't need anything else. It hid my split ends and made my hair feel silky smooth ;-) Can't go wrong with that, I'd give it an 8.






Now, I will admit I didn't give this half a chance. I'm an Arbonne user and will be forever. I just don't believe it can get any better when it comes to skin care than Arbonne.

But I did try it, it's good but not as good as what I'm use to. Arbonne sets the bar high and it's all natural. I'll give this moisturizer a 5.





This perfume...not quite my taste. It's really flowery and strong, too pretty smelling. Not so ageless, I'd say a 3 on the ratings chart is generous.







I saved the best for last. I will be saving up to purchase a full bottle of this! I've tried SO many mascaras over the past year and haven't found one that I like until now. This is everything I've been looking for, it's not heavy on my eyes, it stays on when I need it to, and comes off when I want it off. It's not clumpy, the brush is really great and extends those lashes beautifully. I've used it every day since I got it and I don't have one complaint! Can't wait to purchase it, 10 of 10 for sure.

Birch box sends an e-mail each month with all the details on the products you receive. They give you all the information on where you can purchase the products, as well as other related products that you might like. It's a great deal for $10, I'd highly recommend you try them out ;-)

What's in your box?
