As a military family we value gift of time, we always cherish being able to celebrate holidays together. With Valentines day just around the corner, I thought a really unique watch would be the perfect gift.

Thanks to Jord Wood Watches I was able to surprise my husband with an engraved JORD watch for Valentine’s Day. He was totally surprised and lets be honest this unique wood watch is definitely going to help Kale elevate his daily wrist wear!

Kale’s engraved watch is the newest style in the JORD collection, the Hyde series, is a model of minimalism. Like most men my husband is all about minimalism when it comes to anything fashion. Even though this watch is simple the details of the sapphire crystal glass, metal tipped hands and real wood are just beautiful. Another special touch that JORD offers is personalizing the box your watch comes in with an engraved message! If your in the market for a unique men’s  or women’s  watch, JORD’s watches are timepieces pieces meant for a modern lifestyle!

Tone it Up: I really want to tone up this year so I’m now a Tone It Up Girl and loving it!

Think Dirty App: Scan the barcode on your product and you will receive a rating of 0 (clean!) to 10 (dirty). It’s amazing you’ll find yourself scanning everything in sight.


One Word: Influenster ( look for more info in an upcoming post)

Kerastase: Fibre architecte reconstructing serum for weak hair and damaged hair. Because after years of hair extensions my hair needs some major love.

LANCER: The Method is a skin game changer. My skin has never felt smoother. Yes, it’s a little pricey but worth it. Try out the limited addition mini set at Sephora and see what you think.

Self Acceptance in 2018

Happy New Years Eve Friends!!
I hope your holiday season has been wonderful, it has been so fun around here!
I can’t believe tomorrow will be 2018, this year flew by
I am not a huge fan of New Years resolutions, but in 2018 I really feel like I need a LIFE resolution… not just a New Years resolution.
Self Acceptance is something that I have never had, I’ve struggled my whole life with my ever changing body which led me to an eating disorder and body dysmorphia. As a mom I play such an important role in my little girl’s life, mama is who she looks up too! If I can’t learn self acceptance of my body, how can I teach Blaklely to love and accept herself! I have a feeling 2018 will be filled with a lot of personal growth and maybe some tears. Lets just say it will be a big year for us and I’m looking forward to it. Have a great time ringing in the NEW YEAR, I’ll see you in 2018!

Vivora Luno Ball For Luxury Active Sitting or Exercise

Happy New Years Weekend! Like many of you know I am a fan of using an exercise ball for at home workouts. It’s a great tool for toning from head-to-toe while engaging your core, so I was thrilled when I was introduced to the Vivora Luno ball. The Luno ball does everything an exercise ball does and more! Besides using it to workout I have been using it as a desk chair, which is so nice because it allows me to shift and wiggle while constantly engage my core! You can also find the Luno rolling around our living room at times because it makes the best footrest! What also makes the Vivora Luno different than other exercise/ stability balls is the fabric cover. It’s so appealing unlike the typical plastic exercise balls, it adds that extra bit of flair to your house.  Check out the variety of colors and styles that Vivora offers here. They now are offering a worn hazel suede leatherette cover, which is my personal favorite!

Vivora also offers something for your kiddos, Niko buddies with cute animal faces are perfect for kids with problems such as ADHD or kids who have a hard time focusing and sitting still! The Niko ball allows your child to wiggle while they work, releasing that energy in a positive way. Check out the variety of animals faces they offer Brown Bear, Koala, Panda, or Polar Bear and Polar Bear cub buddies! Click below to order the Niko and my Luno favorites on Amazon right now!!

Today it’s all about the 5 items you need to make the Ultimate Momiform!! The Momiform changes with the seasons so for a perfect winter momiform, you’ll need a basic cozy sweater, the perfect bag, great pair of jeans, and of course comfy shoes!! Click the Pictures to SHOP!

A cozy sweater should be a staple in every women’s closet, living San Diego my closet is starting to fill up with them. Here are two of my faves that are easy to pair with any denim or leggings .They truly make for a great staple piece for your closet.

Second every women and mom needs a killer bag! I actually never carried a real baby bag. I will admit I bought a great Tory Bruch baby bag but I always just went back to carrying a big cheap reversible tote or a backpack! I guess I am not the traditional mom in the baby bag department! Click the photos to shop my favorite bags!!!!

We all need a great pair of denim– distressed denim happens to be my favorite right now! You can’t go wrong with a good pair of distressed jeans. My favorite picks are cozy & stretchy which is what you need as mom, heck it’s what every woman wants!

And to top off the perfect momiform, you need definitely a comfy and cute shoe. I happen to be obsessed with Targets shoes, my recent favorites have all come from Target! Click the pictures to SHOP!
