Friday Favorites: JORD Wood Watch Giveaway, Etsy Shop Discount + More!

Hey friends! Hope everyone has had a great week. I have a giveaway and a coupon code in this post for y'all, so keep on reading for that goodness! :) 

A precious blog reader, Ashley, sent me these adorable mason jars + the faux flowers to decorate my home for spring. She has an Etsy shop, ATZ Home Design, and is offering y'all a 10% off coupon for anything in her shop! Just use the code BRITTANY10 (good until May 31, 2019)

I absolutely loved getting my house spring ready with these mason jars and flowers! Thank you, Ashley! 

I was so excited when JORD reached out to me about their beautiful wood watches! If you haven't yet heard of JORD, they are the creators of unique, hand-crafted, all-natural wood watches -- and they are gorgeous!

They sent me the Frankie, which is dark sandalwood with an emerald face (with sapphire crystal glass), and I absolutely love it! It's so lightweight (but doesn't look that way at all) and is just beautiful! I have worn it this week and received so many compliments on it. And in fact, I personally think it could be worn by a guy, too. JORD watches make great gifts for any girl (hello, Mother's Day!) and guy (hello, Father's Day!) on your list; the options to choose from are endless. And they also offer watch engraving for an additional cost. 

The process to measure my wrist was so simple; I just printed out their handy ruler and measured my wrist size in centimeters, and the watch arrived perfectly sized to fit me. Included in the box it arrived in was a cloth to clean the watch and wood preserver oil to ensure the watch is always looking as beautiful as the day it arrived to me. 

JORD has been so kind to host a giveaway for y'all! You can enter it HERE. But it doesn't stop there: they will send everyone who enters the giveaway a 10% off discount code, while one lucky winner will receive a discount code for $100 off of a JORD watch! 

*I partnered with JORD for this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

We have been trying to be a little better about what we're eating with swimsuit season quickly approaching, so our recipes lately have been healthy (well, most of them, anyway), yet delicious. 

Here are some recent favorites: 

+ SkinnyTaste's Dijon-Maple Chicken with Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash
This is not only easy, but delicious. I could eat the sauce with a spoon! Even the boys enjoy this dish and it tastes even better heated up for leftovers the next day. 

+ Low Carb Crustless Taco Pie 
This is actually a Keto recipe, but we all love it so much! It's so easy to put together and again, my boys love it! We serve each portion with some guacamole, sour cream and salsa. It's delicious! 

+ Salmon Croquettes 
I don't have a recipe for these exactly, as I melded Natalie's recipe with a family recipe to add some flavor. I don't normally fry things, but these were 100% worth my house, hair and clothes smelling like fried food. So yummy and Brandon took a couple to work for leftovers for days!

+ Almond Flour Banana Muffins 
We loved these this week! In fact, I made 12 on Sunday evening and by Wednesday morning, these puppies were gone! The boys love them and I love that they're pretty healthy (made with almond flour, bananas and sugar-free chocolate chips), but still a nice treat. 

A few recent Amazon favorites: 

+ Cactaki Water Bottle

I struggle with drinking enough water throughout the day, and this handy BPA-free water bottle has time markers to remind me when it's time to chug. It's 32 oz. and you fill it up once a day for a full 64 oz. of water a day. (And trust me, I can tell that I'm drinking much more water this week! I've been back and forth to the restroom and my skin is already looking better!)  

+ Hold.ME Three-Ways Hairspray

My hairstylist used this on me when I had my hair done a couple of weeks ago, and I loved it so much that I purchased it on Amazon on the drive home. It smells SO amazing and holds my hair without being too stiff or tacky. But the cool thing about it is that it has three levels of hold: light, medium and high, and you simply choose which level you want by twisting the nozzle. So cool! 

+ Beauty For Real Lip Revival Sugar Lip Scrub (Orange Spice)

My lips were just generally dry and I wanted something to exfoliate them and ensure my lipstick goes on a bit smoother, so I found this one on Amazon and not only does it work, but it smells delicious! I use it about once or twice a week (as needed) and it makes my lips so soft and smooth. 

We have absolutely been living outdoors this week, and I couldn't be happier that spring has officially arrived (and am praying it stays weather-wise for the time being!). We have loved getting back out on walks, playing at the park and even eating supper outside on the patio before it gets to be 100+ degrees with 100% humidity and the dreaded mosquitoes are back! Spring, we love you!

These are my sunglasses I found in a little EZ Mart in Angel Fire. Well, Knox broke them soon after this picture was taken and I was so bummed! But, I did a. little research and what do you know, Amazon had them for a little over $9! I quickly scooped them up and was so excited I found them! Here is the link if you want them, too!

Hope everyone has great weekends!

Wooden Wrist Watch



  1. the weather has been amazing and I love it oh so much. Jason has a wood watch I bought him in Hawaii and its so cool, I need to look into these ones.

  2. Those jars are so CUTE! Our weather has been all over the place and ended with snow today... hopefully it will all melt tomorrow when the temps are supposed to head up into the 60's. You just never know with spring in New England.
