Jord Wooden Watches – For The Modern, On The Go Mom

I am not one to over accessorize. I usually just have one to two bracelets and a hair tie wrapped around my wrist at all times. That is the extent of my mom accessory style. To me, watches either look too sporty or too fancy on my wrist so searching for the perfect combination was either a hit or miss.

Being that I am always on Instagram, I had come across the company Jord Wooden Watches and got to look at their selection of watches. I had never owned a wooden watch, and the idea seemed so innovative and eco friendly to me which made me very intrigued. As I looked through their gorgeous selection, I was drawn to the Frankie and the Fieldcrest the most – but ultimately decided that the Fieldcrest in the tone of dark sandalwood was for me.

What I love about Jord watches is that I can wear mine with a fancy outfit, or just my usual mom uniform of a t-shirt and jeans – and it just works! It looks great paired with any outfit, for any occasion. I love that it is versatile in that way and I don’t have to over think it. With other watches, I’m limited to what outfit I can wear each with and I’m so glad that I don’t have that problem anymore. As mom that is always on the go, I’m glad that I’ve eliminated that process.

Just opening my Jord package, not only does it come in a very well thought out wooden box – but it is so modern in its design.

Make Friends While You Drive with CarMoji by MotorMood

Being on the road could be very stressful sometimes, especially when you are driving by angry drivers full of road rage. When I used to get cut off by other drivers, lets just say I would have my choice of colorful metaphors to exchange with them. Now that I’m a parent, I try to just keep it as calm as possible so that I prevent any accidents because I have my kiddos to keep safe.

That is why I think the CarMoji is such a unique product. MotorMood has come up with such a fun product that any driver can use! The CarMoji is a light up “emoji” face that you attach to the rear mirror. You simply touch the remote button that is placed on your window visor (much like a garage door opener) and your CarMoji lights up its pretty little emoji face.

The CarMoji has interchangeable color faces, I have the blue and the red face – which works best at night for me since my car windows are tinted. There are also other emoji faces available, as well as a “thumbs up” icon. The remote is battery operated but the neat thing is that you only have to replace the AA batteries about twice a year.

Honestly, it makes driving something to look forward to and my son loves seeing the CarMoji face light up! I got a few friendly waves from using it, making friends on the road – now that’s something new for me!

So”kill them with kindness” if you will. Or use it as another way to give a friendly thank you to that driver who let you in the lane the very last second. Check MotorMood here out and get yourself a CarMoji! Make sure to use coupon code “THANKSGISELLA” to get $5.00 off your purchase!!

 

Printed and Proper

I always try to stay true to myself and my personal style. I love rocking graphic tee’s that express more than just a trend, but that just personally get me and exude my personality. Now to find both of those things in a brand and on top of it, add faith to its purpose – I’m sold!

Printed and Proper not only offers pieces with a purpose but some of the shirts have some of the most funny slogans for us foodies who just love to laugh and a good eat. When scrolling through the brand’s site, it was really hard to just narrow it down to just two pieces to pick out because her line is so adorable and has a broad range of cute tees to fit any personality. Whether you are strong in your faith, need a rocking mom power tee, or are just looking for a shirt to express how much tacos mean to you – this is the shop to buy from!

One of the first pieces that stood out to me was the “Be You Bravely” tee. One of the reasons this piece resonated with me was the Bible verse that it represented – which is:

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Romans 12:2

This is one of my favorite Bible verses, mostly because as a young girl and throughout me growing as a Christian – I felt the tug and pull of being a Christian in this modern world. Being of the flesh but trying to live in Christ is a huge challenge, especially for young girls. It is important to “not conform” to what this world expects of young women, many things that are not godly – such as premarital sex, promiscuity, vanity, etc. I have always struggled to be myself, sometimes not so bravely – so I feel this shirt is an awesome message for not only young women, but all women. Because even when you grow up and become mothers and wives, we still have to hold true to the will of God and the examples we have to uphold in Christ.

I also fell in love with the t-shirt “Taco’s Are My Love Language” because, well who doesn’t love tacos? I know I do, I especially gravitated towards this graphic tee because tacos has been my number one craving this pregnancy. So, it was only natural to pick this baby up!
