Hello Friends! Here it is halfway through the week, and I don’t know about you but I always feel sluggish on Wednesdays.

Details are on my Instagram (click here to go the original post), or you can comment below to indicate if you are planning to join in.

Of Wood Watches & a Bargain

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Hey guys! Two posts in one week? Whatever in the world?!! But I had to share an amazing deal with you… Remember my Fieldcrest Watch in Zebrawood & Maple that JORD Watches kindly sent me to review? A year later and I am happy to report that not only does it still look like new, but I get compliments on it all.the.time. It’s a little expensive (not undeservedly so, but budgets don’t always understand that), but for 24 hours, you can purchase it for less than $100 through Amazon during their big Prime Day sale!

But then I began to ask myself, why don’t I wear comfort shoes? After all, I’m on my feet a lot. And my legs get tired and my feet begin to cramp if I wear shoes that are too attractive (read between the lines: too tight and too tall because I insist on wearing painfully cute shoes). Since comfort shoes are generally not attractive or very versatile, I’ve often shunned them. But I went online and looked at their the mahabis shoes and immediately liked the cool design. Then I went on Instagram to see them on real people. I noticed that they were sporty and cool on everyone. So what about a comfort shoe that’s sporty and could be worn with almost anything? Would I wear it? YES.Read More »
