Watch Giveaway and Winning the Weekend

First of all, there is an amazing giveaway opportunity for someone to win a beautiful, wooden Jord watch in today’s post! I am wearing the Ebony & Sable watch from the Cassia collection. It was fun to swap my Apple watch for something a little fancier for the weekend! (I also have world’s puniest wrists and Drew loves to make fun of them and say he could snap them like twigs….thankfully he hasn’t tested the theory)

Some topics are disputable, but I think we can all agree that weekends are welcomed by everyone and never seem to stay long enough.

At-Home Teeth Whitening & Tanning: GIVEAWAY

Beauty-related topics aren’t really my niche, but these are two things that go a long way in my opinion-- a good tan, and a white smile. Those are probably high on my priority list because they stay put even when everything else sweats off. I’m embarrassingly minimal with my day-to-day routine and nothing that slows down my 25 minute shower + hair + makeup whirlwind routine in the morning will last long. Thankfully, I run around with kids most of the day and their expectations are pretty low in that category-- a rousing game of dodgeball and they are more than impressed.
