Happy December y’all. My all-time favorite month is finally here! I can’t wait for fires in the fireplace, continued marathons of Hallmark Christmas movies, and hot cocoa on the daily! I’ve finished almost all of my shopping, but I have a couple of gifts left to buy. I wanted to share a great gift idea with you today: JORD watches.

To start, I needed to pick out a watch that would fit my style/aesthetic. I chose the “Cassia” in Zebra & Ivory. You can see my watch details here! If I could describe this exact watch in one word, it would be classic. My watch goes with everything!

THREE reasons I love JORD watches:

{ONE} You can personalize them any way you want

As you can see in the below photo, I chose to have a quote engraved on the back of my watch. I wanted something that really spoke to me on a daily basis. It’s actually the quote that motivated me to start a blog in the first place: “Act like a lady, think like a boss.” In today’s world, I think there’s a stigma about certain jobs women can have. Over half of my graduating pharmacy school class was women. We are powerful, and we need to shine in the work place. This watch gives me confidence to wake up each day and give it my all.

{TWO} The watches are high-quality

I was impressed by the overall feel and look of the watch when it arrived on my doorstep. The included wood box that the watch is housed in is a nice touch. I keep my watch stored in this box so it won’t get dirty and dusty.

{THREE} Customer service is top-notch

From the very beginning, the customer service team was available to answer any and all questions I had. From sizing to colors, JORD is really helpful to customers. Their website is easy-to-use and they have made it simple to find what you are looking for quickly. PS did I mention FREE shipping worldwide?!

GOOD LUCK y’all! XO,


Happy Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend y’all! I am going to admit, I was a little overwhelmed when I looked at my email inbox yesterday morning. I was just like there are SO many sales and it’s awesome. But then I got to thinking…what do I really need? Yes, I do have some holiday shopping to do for others. I am almost done shopping, so I didn’t really purchase much. I did buy this clutch at a steal (you know feeding my velvet obsession), and it’s still in stock! Anyways, what I’m most looking forward to this weekend (and ALL month) is holiday movies & music.

Here are my suggestions to get you in the spirit:

Music: I created a holiday playlist on Spotify with all of the hits. Is there anything better than listening to a little Frank Sinatra and having a fire in the fireplace? THE BEST. I love this time of year!

Movies: I admit that I wasn’t a huge movie person growing up. I think it was just that I spent a lot of time outside playing with my friends. However, a holiday movie is one area that I never skimp. I could watch them ALL day, everyday! And don’t even get me started on cheesy Hallmark movies ;) I’ve separated this list into Non-Hallmark Movies & Hallmark Movies.

Non-Hallmark Movies: Christmas Vacation, Elf, The Holiday, Home Alone, I’ll be home for Christmas, The Santa Clause

FAVORITE: This is a major tie between Home Alone & the Holiday. I feel like they’re so different that you can’t compare them. I still laugh so hard at Home Alone, and I’ve probably seen it 8648629 times. AND somebody tell me that it isn’t your dream to be stuck in dreamy, snowy England and happen to get a knock on your door from Jude Law?! ;)

Hallmark Movies: A Christmas Detour, Christmas Kiss, Christmas Land, Christmas Under Wraps, Crown for Christmas, A December Bride, Fir Crazy, Let It Snow, The Mistletoe Promise, Most Wonderful Time of the Year, A Royal Christmas, Winter Wonderland

FAVORITE: How am I supposed to pick just one? However, A Royal Christmas is probably my favorite. It is pretty hard to see Lacey Chabert in a movie that isn’t Mean Girls, but she totally nails this one. Hey, I woudn’t mind spending the holidays in the south of France with a prince either ;)
