When I was single and this blog was self-indulgent, I used to post about my outfits, lookbook, #ootd—call it what you want but those posts were more for me to keep track of my current fashion (since fashion to me is a form of self-expression) and see how my style has evolved through the years. Of course, motherhood happened and I dealt with some sort of anxiety and post-partum issues with my body so I didn’t dress up for a while. You could say I was uninspired, I didn’t feel to good about myself and my body but after baby #2 I learned a whole lot about self-love and also learned the importance of practicing self- care. I’m proud to say that after 3+ years, I’m learning to love my #mombod and have embraced my battle scars (stretch marks, loose skin, weight gain, etc.) from both pregnancies.
Through those years my priorities have changed and my style has also evolved to reflect that. Nowadays I find myself preoccupied with house chores and play dates I no longer have time to think of what to wear and have resorted to a more timeless wardrobe , ‘ the basics‘ as others would call it but think of it this way—they’re reliable and you can never go wrong with it. In my journey of slowly ridding my life of clutter and creating a semi-capsule wardrobe I found myself investing in pieces that will last me a life time and that includes my JORD WATCH. I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about them for a while and so I was overly ecstatic when they reached out to me. I already got myself a Jord Fieldcrest in Maple prior to this collaboration and I wanted Marco to enjoy the same classic timepiece I had so I opted to get him the Jord Hyde in Kosso &Gray . These beautifully designed wooden watches have a wide array of options for men and women (as you can see) and they also ship worldwide for FREE so go check them out.

As parents, we cant help but wear different hats multiple times a day. Sometimes I’m a blogger, an influencer, a mom boss and I find a few minutes in those days where I can dress up and look decent like a normal human being. (Even do #OOTDs like the good old days)
But for the most part I am a mother and I try to tend to my kids 24/7 wether we’re at home or out traveling, busy making memories and treasuring the moments that they still enjoy being with me and Marco.
…And lastly, I am a wife. I know life can be overwhelming, for a SAHM watching the kids is a full time job, then you have emails, collaborations to tend to on the side plus house chores to top it all but it’s always important to take the time with your significant other. Even when we’re too busy to have date nights, we take a few minutes to just snuggle, talk about our day and laugh at the crazy things our kids did—these are the moments that count.
In celebration of these special moments in our life and just living life in general I have partnered with Jord watch to give one lucky winner $100 off their very own timepiece selection. Click the link below to join the giveaway:
