Women’s Watches: Where to Shop for Unique Timepieces this Summer

When I opened up the beautiful cedar box to see my FRANKIE series JORD watch inside, I was so excited! As soon I saw it I was very impressed by the timepiece. If you think it’s beautiful in photos, wait till you see it in person!

Everything was packaged perfectly. It came with a 100% natural finishing oil to care and condition the wood watch. The box also included, polishing cloths for the wood and glass. I loved the mini pamphlet provided because I could read about the story of JORD, facts about the watch and instructions on how to operate it. It even came with extra link pieces, just in case I’d want to adjust the sizing.


One of the things I love most about this wood watch is that you can style it with many outfits. The natural wood blends in well with dressy and casual attire. This timepiece is so unique and perfect for me to wear this summer! You cannot go wrong with JORD because it’s so tasteful with a variety of outfit choices.


I did not want a watch that only looked appealing, but something that felt comfortable too. What is awesome about this watch is that it easily slides and snaps together nicely. Unlatching it is simple and taking it off is not a hassle. The watches movement makes it fit perfectly around the wrist. It’s definitely comfortable and stylish.

JORD has a series of men watches and a series of women’s watches. If you are on the search for a watch I highly recommend JORD. They also make the perfect gift! JORD even provides a special engraving service, which allows you to personalize a watch or cedar box.

The Homeless Heart


Have you ever heard the saying, “Home is where the heart is?” When we hear the word heart in that sentence we know it’s not literally the organ beating in the chest. Where your heart lies in this sense is directed towards what you love, what guides you and brings meaning to your life. It’s tied in with the soul.

From Identity Crisis to Identity in Christ

My mom knows I love planners, so she bought me one for my birthday. Its front cover says, “Plan out your future and make your dreams reality.” Whenever I read these words my mind goes to these two verses:  

“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.” Psalms 37:23-24(NLT)

Comparing Squares

Comparing lives through social media has been an ongoing issue. One thing I can say is that I get it! I’ve experienced thinking I wasn’t good enough because I’d see someone else’s”perfect life” in those squared photos.  At least that’s what I thought. We do this on Continue reading

Do Your Thang Mama

Motherhood has always come with its challenges. People will always have opinions on what a mother should or should not do. Five people on the right will be suggesting one thing while five on the left suggest the complete opposite. Hey I’m all for being teachable, but if you see a mom that prefers to do her mommy thing differently than you, you can’t force her to do what you would do as a mom. Every woman is made to mother in a unique way because her child is also uniquely made and different from yours. Each mom has her own style. Being welcomed into motherhood isn’t meant to be like entering into a competition. Continue reading

The Years I Allowed Flaws, Fears And Rejections Defeat Me

When I look back I start remembering it all so clearly and the feelings of being so embarrassed. Since I’m a grown woman now it does make it easier to share and honestly a good amount of time passing by always helps.

It all started in the 6th grade when I was going through the “awkward stage.” It was the first day of school. I recently got braces, never used a hair straightener and my favorite songs were probably from a Lizzie McGuire soundtrack, which was not cool anymore. On the first day of school I’d say Continue reading

Chasing After The Root of Life

While scrolling through social media there’s a good chance you’ve seen the image of a pineapple with the quote that says: “Be a pineapple: Stand tall. Wear a crown and be sweet on the inside.” I mean, who doesn’t want to develop into that?  Did you know pineapples roots can extend past its leaves which can reach up to 5 feet long? It takes about six months just for the seed to sprout. During that time the baby plant can even be planted carefully into temporary growing containers.  We see it takes a pineapple time to mature into what it’s supposed to be from the inside out.
