Introducing Jord Watches

Jord Watch

 I recently got the opportunity to try out a Jord Watch, and I’m so excited share it with you! All of their watches are made from wood, which gives them such a unique style that you won’t see anywhere else. You can custom order the size so it fits your wrist perfectly. (If you’re like me and like big faces on your watch, this is huge. No more watches sliding halfway up your arm throughout the day!) It comes in a beautiful wooden box ready to style. The one I ordered in particular is the Fieldcrest in Zebrawood & Maple, $120. I’m also smitten with the Cora (you know that’s my color!), priced at $275.

The day I got mine, The Boy and I had dinner plans. I paired with a new dress I got from the Warehouse Sale, some simple pearl studs, and Jack Rogers. I received so many compliments, and someone even stopped me on my way out of the restaurant to ask where I got it! Overall, I think it was a beautiful watch, and the price is really fair for what you’re getting. Which one is your fav?

Lilly Warehouse Sale Recap

 I finally got to go to the Lilly Warehouse Sale this year! I’ve wanted to do this for years but have never actually, so when my friend Courtney asked if I wanted to go, I was game. And guess who else was there? The always-hysterical Becky! Needless to say, even before we got in, it was a good time.

lilly pulitzerMy thoughts on the sale itself? The prices really weren’t that different than the online sales, especially considering how long we all had to wait. However, it was really nice to be able to try everything on instead of hoping for the best. And it was a crazy experience. The volunteers kept everything stocked pretty well, but girls were going nuts over the popovers. It was like Lilly for Target on crack. They were literally chasing after the volunteers as they brought out racks. In spite of the insanity, everything was pretty organized, and the checkout lines were super fast. Overall – would I go again? You bet!

Lilly Warehouse Sale

2015whsale1

Since I graduated college and have been back in central PA, I’ve wanted to go to the Lilly Warehouse Sale. However, I wasn’t quite brave enough to go alone. Thankfully, this year, I have a friend! I’ve never been before, so I have no idea what to expect. (Although, after Lilly for Target, I have a feeling it’s going to be insane!)

I imagine it’s going to be a lot of their fall/winter stuff, but a girl can dream of finding these new arrivals, right?

 

Memorial Day Sales + I’m Officially A Grownup

I was really excited to wake up to so many sales announcements on my birthday. Nordstrom having their Half-Yearly Sale on my birthday? Now, that’s customer service. In all seriousness though, I’m officially a grownup as of today. I’m no longer eligible to mooch off of my parents’ insurance, and, in today’s day and age, I think that’s the start of adulthood. As a grownup, I should know better than to blow my whole paycheck on clothing, but there are so many sales right now that I can’t pass up!

Blossom Vox Box

I’ve been part of this really awesome program, Influenster, for a while now. Basically, they send boxes every so often with really great new products to try, and you share it with your friends on social media! (If you’re interested, you can sign up here.) This time, I got the Blossom Vox Box, a box dedicated to spring.

Contents:

Beanitos bean chips: These are so good! I love tortilla chips but rarely divulge in them, but the protein and fiber in these made me feel a little better about eating the whole bag.

Clairol Hair Food Root Cleanser: I have long hair that tends to get pretty oily at the roots after a day. I’ve only used this once so far, but I washed and styled my hair Monday morning and, as I’m writing this Tuesday night, my hair still looks good. Plus, it smells great!

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs: They call this leg makeup, but it’s essentially self tanner that doesn’t smell bad and washes off once you hop in the shower. I’ve actually been using this since last spring, and I love love love it. If you’ve seen a picture of me in a dress on Instagram, you’ve seen me with this on.

Bear Naked Granola: I added this to some Greek yogurt, and it was perfect on-the-go breakfast! Very tasty, even to someone who isn’t a granola lover.

 Nasoya Zero Calorie Noodles: I was gluten-free in college (Celiac’s runs in my fam, but it turns out gluten isn’t my issue, so I’m not anymore), so I was very familiar with these before the Vox Box. They’re a great gluten-free, vegan, low fat, and low calorie pasta alternative. Nothing will ever truly replace pasta in my mind (I’m part Italian), but these come closes!

NYC New York Color City Proof 24HR Eye Shadow: True story. I really don’t wear much makeup. Mascara, always, but that’s about it. However, I did want to give this a try before sharing anything with you. I was really impressed with how long this lasted and that it didn’t cause creases on my eyelids – two things that have long prevented me from wearing eye shadow. While I still won’t wear it every day, this is great for special nights out.

Australian Gold Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30: I was really impressed with how moisturized this left my skin. I usually only put sunscreen on when I know I’m going to be in the sun all day, but this is great for everyday wear when you know you’re probably going to be in the sun but not enough to warrant your normal sunscreen. Perfect for parties that start during the day and transition into evening soirees.

Thanks to Influenster and all these great brands for letting me try their products!

Charles River Apparel Giveaway

Giveaway

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed I’m hosting a giveaway with Charles River. If you’re not, why are you even on Insta? I kid, I kid. It’s literally the easiest giveaway you’ll ever enter. All you have to do is like the photo and follow both of our accounts, and you’re set! You can win extra entries by tagging friends and reposting the photo.

Can’t wait to see if you won? I don’t blame you. You can get the New Englander (pictured above) here. This is the perfect jacket for spring. It’s extremely lightweight, and it keeps you super dry. I packed it for my Costa Rica trip, and, even though it looks like it was sunny above, I got caught in a few thunderstorms and was saved by this jacket! Another one of my favorites is the Heathered Fleece Jacket, and the Fitness Jacket makes me actually want to try working out.

Good luck!

Tory Burch Sale

I finally checked the weather for my trip, and it’s going to thunderstorm literally every day. Hopefully, it’s like the Dominican and it’ll just rain for an hour or so. Anyway, obviously I was in a bad mood. That is, until I checked Twitter and saw that there’s a Lilly sale! Take 30% through Monday!

Scroll below to find my favorites:

Lilly for Target

Lilly For Target.

Lillygate.

Targhazi.

What an experience! I’m in utter shock over the outrage the release has caused. As someone who deals with the Lilly sale every year, I’m totally used to the website crashing and missing my must-haves, so I wasn’t too upset about that. However, what happened at my local store was nuts. I showed up at 7:45 (The Boy was running late!), and I wasn’t very far back in the line, but there were no clothes left by the time I got in. I meandered over to that area, found one shirt, started to pick it up, and another lady grabbed it from my hands. Insane.

Shift-Dress-Happy-Place

So while everyone hit the bags next, I walked to the home section. Hoards of women started running past me. Everything was gone. Thankfully, while they were checking out, the (very patient!) Target employees brought out another box, so I was able to score the blanket and mugs before the girls came running back. There were women waiting outside of the dressing rooms hoping people would change their minds. Yikes.

Overall, I’m very pleased with what I did manage to score from the internet and store. The home items I got – the mugs, cocktail glasses, the basket, and the blanket – are great, and they came just in time for the new place. So far, two of my dresses have arrived. Target’s sizing is a bit different than Lilly’s, so I ordered 2s instead of 0s, but the fit is almost identical. And, not to rub it in for those who didn’t find dresses, I’m seriously impressed with the quality. I purchased a shirt from the Jason Wu collection, and it split at the seams after one wear. It was a loose-fitting blouse, so certainly not an issue of being too tight.

I hope that all of you were just as lucky! And if you scored the napkins and/or hammock and decide to sell it, please let me know :)

Shopbop Sale

  My favorite designers – all at 25% off? Is this another April Fool’s joke? (I swear I fell for all of them this year!) Nope – it’s Shopbop’s Friends and Family sale. Take 25% off with code SPRING25. Check some of my spring favorites below:
