Easy Easter Inspiration with JORD


Jeans // Top // Scarf // Necklace // Mules // Watch

I'm loving all the Easter dresses popping up on social media lately, but let's get real... How many of us have a formal holiday anymore? My family's gatherings are full of food and fun, so I'm always looking for something polished yet easy to wear. My guess is a majority of you are in the same boat. Today I'm sharing some inspiration for a simple Easter outfit that can be re-created with things already in your closet. There is one thing I'd recommend you add though, and that's a unique timepiece by JORD Woodwatches!

This super cool "Cora" watch is crafted of Koa wood, which is full of rich, warm-tone hues. The rose gold face and Swarovski accents make for the perfect spring accessory. As a young professional, I appreciate that the aesthetic allows for a seamless transition between both work-appropriate and casual looks. Another plus is how lightweight the watch is. I have a Michele watch that I adore; however, the weight of the metal ultimately results in me taking it off midday. JORD watches are so comfortable that whether I'm feverishly typing away at work, or running errands on the weekend, I can move without restriction.

While a JORD watch is certainly an investment, it is well worth it in my opinion! To make a timepiece more accessible, JORD is offering one of you a $100 gift card towards a watch of your choice. All you have to do is submit an entry via the link here. It expires on Sunday, April 9th, so be sure to enter ASAP. Also, everyone who participates will receive a $25 gift card just for showing your interest. All codes will expire on June 9th.

What are your Easter plans? Thoughts on the wood watch trend? Let me know in the comments below! Thank you for reading. Please share and subscribe.

Huge thanks to JORD for partnering with me on today's post! While I did receive the Cora watch gratis, all opinions are my own. I sincerely appreciate your support of brands that keep my blog up and running.

$4 Shampoo & Conditioner: A Kardashian-Jenner Staple!?

Yes, you read the title correctly...Finesse shampoo and conditioner costs approximately $4 per bottle, and Kendall Jenner swears by it (so she says). Brandbacker provided me with an opportunity to test it out for myself, and I must admit, it's pretty damn good! Here's everything you need to know:

~ Fresh scent
~ Softening
~ Volumizing for fine hair
~ No residue/Washes out clean
~ Amazing price
~ Very accessible (available in stores; here and here)
~ Hair stays clean for approx. 3 days with a little dry shampoo

~ Need a lot of product to get the job done due to watery consistency
~ Hair fall out from conditioner

Now that I put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, my list of pros is significantly longer than my cons. As much as I hate to admit it, I have to agree with Miss Kendall... Finesse is fantastic. I'd highly recommend you trying it for yourself. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Do you use any products approved by the Kardashian-Jenner clan? What are your thoughts? I'm pleasantly surprised by my Finesse experience, and even happier to share such a great shampoo and conditioner with you. Thanks for reading! Please share and subscribe if you enjoyed today's post :)
