Featured: Unique Wooden Watches by JORD (& A Holiday Giveaway!)

This is my first GIVEAWAY! I wanted to kickoff the Holiday Season by gifting a lucky winner with some of my favorite items that I hope you will love as much as I do! I am featuring JORD Wooden Watches in this giveaway, along with 4 other items. Take a look at what is included in the giveaway below and why I love each item! 

My featured item in this Holiday Giveaway is this gorgeous, wooden timepiece by JORD. JORD makes beautiful men’s and women’s watches that are unique, minimalist and timeless. You know I love myself some staple pieces to go in my wardrobe that aren’t going to go out of style quickly, and these watches are just that: TIMELESS. I need a watch that will work into my lifestyle as a mom and can transition to a dressier outfit on a date night without feeling too “trendy”. The Frankie watch met all my “mama” requirements and has become my latest wardrobe staple! I got the Frankie watch in the color Koa and Ash. The darker wood is such a beautiful compliment to anything I wear it with, and adds just the right amount of contrast to my gold jewelry I like to wear! This watch has held up to wrangling the boys all day, changing diapers and playing outside, as well as dressing up my outfit to go out with Stephen on a date. I am so thankful I’m not sacrificing style when I wear this, it’s just beautiful! I am so excited that the winner of this giveaway will receive a $100 gift card to JORD Watches to purchase your own unique timepiece that best fits your style! They have so many unique wooden timepieces for men and women, it would be the perfect treat for you, or to gift to someone! 

The next item in my giveaway goes perfectly with the JORD watch, a $25 Carly Jean Los Angeles Gift Card! If you have followed me for any length of time, you have probably noticed my obsession with CJLA! Again, timeless pieces that work with my lifestyle as a mama, but that I can also dress up! I’m so thankful that I can still feel cute as a mom of 4 boys! 

The winner will also receive an Overnight Resurfacing Peel by Beautycounter! I am a huge advocate for safer ingredients in the products I use for my family, and Beautycounter is changing the beauty industry for the better. Their products are not only toxin free, but are the highest quality out there. I always hated using the “healthier” beauty options because they didn’t work, but this stuff WORKS. After 4 kids in less than 3 years, little sleep, and lots of stress, my skin has taken a beating. This peel is a leave on, moisturizer type serum that improves skin texture and minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and dark spots without irritation or over-drying. I use it a couple times a week and each time I use it, my skin feels extremely hydrated the next morning and I can tell a dramatic difference in my skins texture, complexion and appearance. You’re gonna LOVE this! 


Lastly, I want to leave you with my 2 favorite reads. I pull out these books OFTEN and they’re a source of encouragement to me as a parent as well as a follower of Christ because we know that this mama over here is livin’ on a prayer to get through these little years!! The winner will receive a copy of my favorite daily devotional, “New Morning Mercies” and a book on parenting that holds so much wisdom called “Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family” both by Paul David Tripp. I hope you find as much value and comfort in these reads as I do!
