Jord Watch Review + Giveaway

A few weeks ago JORD Watches reached out to me. I have followed their Instagram for quite some time and have always loved seeing other bloggers feature their gorgeous wooden watches, so when they asked if I would like to receive a watch to style and review the answer seemed almost inevitable. I have been wearing my watch for a couple of weeks now and am ready to share my thoughts with you!

To begin, I decided to get the Frankie 35 Zebrawood and Navy.  It’s a sleek, gorgeous dark brown watch with a navy face and silver hardware. The best part about this watch is that I was able to get sized right on their website! It came in the mail within five days and arrived in a gorgeous wooden box with two extra links if needed. I was super impressed with the shipping and JORD’s packaging! As far as quality goes, I think this watch is great. It is super lightweight and easy to wear. I would definitely recommend these watches if you are a watch lover yourself or are looking for a watch that is a little less flashy.

If you love these watches as much as I do, than I have good news for you! I am teaming up with JORD to offer you an incredible giveaway!

One lucky winner will receive a $75 e gift card to put towards their purchase of a JORD wooden watch. But that’s not all…. everyone that enters automatically gets $20 e gift card emailed to them for they next JORD purchase!

This is an incredible offer and if you’re interested in these watches I would definitely recommend checking out entering this giveaway!  Click here to enter!

If you own a JORD watch or are thinking about purchasing one, be sure to let me know! I would be happy to chat about them. Thank you all so much for reading, I hope you all have a fabulous day and take part in this great opportunity! With love, McKenz.

October Favorites

Seriously how is October already coming to an end… it just started like a day ago?! However, the end of the month gives me an excuse to share my current favorites with you all which I enjoy, so I’m not too disappointed. Plus there’s Thanksgiving and Black Friday to look forward to in November!

For clothes this month I have been loving my olive-green hat from Old Navy and my nude lace up heels from DSW. They are so chic, I wish I had more excuses to wear them. I also have really been loving my maroon booties from Old Navy this month.

For makeup, I have been wearing my NYX Lingerie lipsticks like crazy. You definitely need to check them out if you haven’t already, they are seriously the best!I also really loved using my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette this month. They have some of the best shadows.

I cut my hair the month into a lob and am in love with it. I have been blowdrying it and then curling it in big loose curls which are my obsession right now.

These were a few of my favorite outfit this month, if you want to see my outfits of the week, be sure to read Weekly Wrap Ups every Sunday on the blog! It’s been fairly warm this October, mostly dipping into the sixties which allows for legs to be uncovered once in a while. I really haven’t been able to break out the riding boots yet, but hopefully soon!

As far as music goes, I have been LOVING Calum Scott, Vance Joy, and The paper Kites. Seriously the best music to cozy up in bed too. I have been reading The Perks Of Being A Wallpaper again and am really enjoying it. For my Bible, I haven been really enjoying reading random scriptures. Flipping open to a random page and reading that has been my go to tactic recently.

Well that’s pretty much all of the favorites I can think of at the moment. I have lots of exciting stuff planned for November so be sure to stay tuned for my upcoming posts. Thank you all for the continuous love and support; I am so thankful for all of you! If you have any questions, comments, or requests please leave them below! Sending all my love your way; with love, McKenz.

PS what do you all think go blooms or the 12 days of Christmas!!??

Collective Haul

Lately it seems like every weekend I find some treasure that I insist I must have. Almost always it’s a piece of clothing or a new makeup product. As I was cleaning my room I realized that over the last few weeks I have collected the perfect amount for a haul on the blog. These are some of my favorite posts to read because I love seeing what everyone has been picking up recently. Anyways, without further ado, let’s get on into it.

On the left is my new poncho/cape/sweater?! Not exactly sure what it’s called but it’s from TJ Maxx and absolutely to die for, it’s so soft and so in style at the moment! I’m wearing a size small and it was $25.00. Another TJ Maxx steal of a deal was this overused bomber jacket! I have been eyeing bombers for quite some time now and when I saw this one was on clearance for under $15 I knew I needed it!

On the left are another TJ Maxx pick up. They are fake Yeezys! I’m all for a cheap knock off and these shoes were so affordable and comfortable that I had to pick them up. Talk about stylish for those chill days spent running errands! On the right I have a poncho that I picked up from you won’t believe where…. AC Moore!! Crazy to find at a craft score I know! It’s so soft and the colors are gorgeous.

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset*I also have gotten my JORD Watch in the mail this past week. I chose the color Frankie 35 Zebrawood and Navy and am so in love with it. I will be styling it with some Fall outfits soon.*

CVS has been breaking my bank recently. Madison and I are obsessed with the NYX Lingerie Lipsticks so we bought three more in the colors Corset, Embellishment, and Ruffle Trim. I also picked up a NYX Lipliner in the color Vanilla Sky. I also got two lipsticks from Wet N Wild in the colors Mocha-licious and Cashmere.

IMG_1169.JPGI also picked up a new Maybelline Color Tattoo in the color Barely Branded, it;s my absolute holy grail makeup product. I also got the gel eyeliner from ELF.

Well, that’s it for todays haul. Please note I am not trying to brag or show off in any way, shape, or form. If you have any questions, comments, or requests please leave them below. Thank you so much for reading; I hope you have a fabulous day. With love, McKenz

5 Halloween Costume Ideas

With Halloween being nearly right around the corner, I figured what better post to do than a Halloween Costume Ideas?! First things first, you’re never to old to dress up. Maybe to go trick-or-treating, but never to old to throw on a costume and take some pictures with your girls! Also, be creative! These are only five of the hundreds of opotions you can choose from. Be creative and get inspired!

Costume #1- Sandy from Grease

I was Sandy from Grease last year and loved it. I took the cutest pictures and came up with the best Instagram captions for them. I simply wore an all black outfit, a leather jacket, and red heels. Curl your hair and throw on a red lipstick and bright blush to complete your look! Note: I did not do this step for the sake of having to look the part for other costumes as well.

Costume #2- Minion

Everyone loves the little minions from Despicable Me! For this costume I wore overalls, a black tee, and some black Converse. I ordered these glasses off of Amazon as well as the hat which I DIYed by sticking black pipe cleaners through the top in order to make the Minion’s hair.

Costume #3- Cowgirl

This one is a classic, cowgirls are super simple because you more than likely have everything sitting around your house already. Throw on a pair of boot cut jeans, a flannel, and a straw hat and you’re good to go for the night.

Costume #4- Hippie

Now my family is not one to buy our costumes from the store but this one was my moms from before I was even born so it’s an exception. We all know that the fashion world loves to throw in a blast from the past every season so my hippie costume seemed pretty appropriate. I honestly have no idea where this costume was bought but I felt so groovy in it… lol.

Costume #5- Gossip Girl Characters

Being a character from Gossip Girl is another easy costume. I took all of these costumes straight from my closet. A white button up, loose tie, skirt, and some back shoes are all you need to complete this costume. Don’t forget your headband unless you want to lose your spot on the steps. (,:

Ahh I hope you all liked these costume ideas, I had so much fun with this blog post! I’m still deciding whether or not to be Lucas Scott from One Tree Hill or to be Little J from Gossip Girl with Madison as Blair and Celia as Serena. I’ll keep ya’ll updated on what I decide! If you are in need of any more costume ideas be sure to check out Pinterest and YouTube, they always have a ton of ideas! Thank you all so much for reading, have a fabulous day. With love, McKenz.

The Fall Tag

Hello everyone, I thought today it might be fun to answer some questions fro t he Fall tag that I have seen going around YouTube and WordPress. I love meeting new bloggers and reading everyone’s answers so stay tuned to see if you’re one of the five bloggers I nominate to answer these questions!

1. Fav Thing About Fall? By far my favorite thing about Fall is the household decorations and the fashion. Both are so cute and fun!
2. Fav Fall/Halloween Movies I love Halloweentown, it’s by far my favorite Halloween Movie, Forrest Gump is definitely a good one to watch around this time of year too.
3. Fashion Trend You’re Loving For Fall I am loving the velvet trend and over the knee boots, I totally want to purchase a pair. I also am loving the bomber jackets so much that I’ve already boughten one for myself.
4. Fav Fall Drink Salted Carmel Mocha Frap from Starbucks or a Salted Carmel Hot Chocolate from Dunkin.
5. What is fall weather like where you live? It’s usually about 40 in the morning and 55-60 around three in the afternoon here. We don’t get too much rain and we definitely experience all four seasons.
6. Apple picking or hayride? By far a hay ride, they are so fun and festive!
7. Rain or fog? Rain, cause that gives me an excuse to break out my Hunter’s.
8. Hocus Pocus or Halloweentown? Halloweentown for the win!
9. Corn Maze or Haunted House? Although I’m not a huge fan of all things scary, I think a haunted house is way more fun than a corn maze.
10. Halloween or Thanksgiving? Hmmm this is so hard. I love Halloween because I get to dress up, take corny pictures, and get candy but thanksgiving is so festive and family oriented. I’m not sure I can pick.
11. Coats or Oversized Sweaters Coats; whether its utility, leather, bomber, or denim I love layering with jackets!
12. Apple Pie or Pumpkin Pie? Apple pie, it’s so much better.
13. Cool Crisp Mornings or Cozy Evenings Cozy evenings, there’s something so enchanting about them. Mornings where I live are a little too crip for my liking.
14. Fav Fall Candle? Anything with pumpkin in it is to die for! I love almost all Bath & Body Works candles.
15. Favourite Thing To Do in The Fall Go pumpkin picking and watch football; two of fall’s necessities.

Homecoming GRWM (hair, makeup, outfit)

Hello everyone, as you probably know from my last couple blog posts, Saturday was my school’s homecoming! It felt so good to get all dolled u with my friends and have a night out. I wanted to do a Get Ready With Me because they’re some of my favorite posts to write and I figured you all might be interested. Before I talk you all’s ears off, let’s get on into it..

Hair-  I got my hair cut into a lob midway through last week and am so in love with it. For the dance I curled my hair and then shook out the curls as much as  possible for a very full and voluminous effect. I curled my hair with a 1/2 inch Conair Wand and kept my curls in place by using the Got2bGlued Hairspray. img_0595

Makeup- For my makeup I knew I wanted to use a bit of Naked 3 to match my dress. I aimed for a super sparkly lid and a brown matte crease with a matching liquid lipstick. I lived up to those hopes most;y, and came up with the following makeup look that I am so in love with:

face primer: Nivea Men’s Shave Balm
foundation: Maybelline Matte Fit Me mixed with Loreal Infallible Pro
face powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
contour: Lumene Bronzer
highlight: “Champagne Truffle” eyeshadow  from Too Faced
eye shadow primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion
eye base: Maybelline Color Tattoo ‘Barely Branded’
lid color: Naked 3 ‘dust’
glitter: Wet N Wild ‘white’
crease color: Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette ‘milk chocolate’
outer V color: Naked 3 ‘mugshot’
mascara: Maybelline Great Lash, Covergirl Flamed Up, Too Faced Better Than Sex
brow bone: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil ‘milk’
brows: Anastasia Dip Brow
liquid lipstick: NYX Lingerie

dress: Kohls, lace up heels: DSW (clearance), nail color: Sally Hansen

Pictures before the dance-

Homecoming was such a good day and I am so glad I am able to share my day with all of you! I hope you guys have a wonderful day, thank you so much for stopping by. If you have any  questions, comments, or requests, please leave them below I am happy to chat with you all. Wishing you all the happiest day. With love, McKenz.
