Jord Watch

Jord Watch

Hello Everyone!

Sometimes, a beautiful watch is just the accessory you need to complete your fall look. They are the perfect juxtaposition of function & fashion, helping us look professional & put together while adding that extra, elemental detail that looks amazing in photos. This time of year, when all I want to wear are knit sweaters, camel coats, & roll necks, I find that a chunkier watch fits right in & really helps a look come together.

In the spirit of Christmas that is quickly approaching, I’m happy to announce that I have partnered with Jord Watches as a part of their Holiday Campaign. I’ve always loved the look of a wood watch, & the craftsmanship & care put into these beautiful products is unmatched. (*Read through the end for an exclusive holiday discount!*) My watch is a gorgeous zebrawood with a bold navy face. Navy is one of my very favorite colors to wear year-round, so when I saw this one, I knew I needed it in my collection. The coolest part about Jord Watches is that they are actually made of real, hand-finished wood! I’m in awe of the quality of this product, & even though is it wood, it’s splash-proof! (phew! Although…better not submerge it in water.)

The watch itself is great, but another selling factor is the packaging! Every watch comes in it’s own wooden box that acts as a humidity control home for your wooden watch. The bottom has a drawer with vents & is equipped with humidity packs to ensure optimal humidity when storing your watch. The top secures by a very satisfying magnetic pull, & looks perfect displayed on a bedside table or vanity.

A nice, hand-crafted wood watch makes the perfect holiday gift for someone special in your life. I know my boyfriend already has his sights set on the Hyde Series watch in walnut & black, which will probably be making it into his stocking this year (hopefully he isn’t reading this!). For women, I would suggest the Frankie Series (like my watch), or the brand new slimmer band Cassia Series. The walnut & vintage rose has my name written all over it!

Since this partnership is for their Holiday Campaign, they very kindly gave me a coupon code for 25% off your entire purchase! Just click here, & you will be emailed with your very own discount code. This is their biggest deal of the year…so don’t miss out!

Fall Makeup

Fall Makeup

Hello Everyone!

I’ve been dying to share some of my fall makeup favorites with you guys!  These faves include a few lipsticks, eye products, & a new blush that I have been absolutely living in recently. It’s so fun to change up your makeup looks when the seasons change. This fall, I’m loving berry tones & deep red lips with jewel tone eyes & glistening cheeks. These products are just heavenly…let’s dive in!

I would have to say that this blush/lipstick combo is my perfect quintessential fall look. This Mary Kay lipstick in the shade Midnight Red has been my most worn lipstick over the past few weeks, & with good reason. First off, the color is just gorgeous. It’s the perfect matte bold lip. They advertise this as a semi-matte lip, but I find that it’s quite matte, just a comfortable matte. This product is effortless to wear, & I love that the formula does not dry out my lips! Thank you!

Now, when I first saw this blush, I couldn’t stop gasping! It’s in the shade Golden Copper, & if that doesn’t already scream fall…I don’t know what does! This product has amazing pigmentation & color pay-off, & blends like a dream. It’s so nice to have a blush that you know when you put it on in the morning, that it’s going to last the entire day.*

I purchased this lipstick a few years ago while dancing on tour, & every year around this time, I get so exciting to bring it back out. This dreamy, berry toned lip is none other than the Too Faced Melted Fig. I have nothing bad to say about this product. I love the application, the wear, the feel, & I get compliments on it every single time I wear it! It really has a way of effortlessly completing a look.

This bold matte lip is slightly brighter than the Mary Kay product mentioned above. I believe this Maybelline lipstick in the shade Divine Wine goes best with blue eyes. Whenever I wear this product, I feel like it truly makes my features pop. If you’re a fellow blue-eyed girl, this lipstick is one you need in your collection, & for under $6…you really can’t beat it!

 

Some other honorable mentions include my all time favorite copper eyeliner that actually stays in my waterline, my navy eyeliner to define my eyes (though softer than black), & my favorite fall Marc Jacobs lipstick in Headliner. I also love adding a little bit of a glow to my skin to freshen up my face on chiller days with the bronze shade in this glow kit. All I need is a very light dusting to top off your bronzer, & I’m radiant, & ready for the day.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. If so, let me know in the comments below!

Year 26 Goals

Year 26 Goals

Year 26 Goals

Hello Everyone!

I turned 26 last week! Since then, I’ve been doing some thinking about what I want this next year of my life to look like. Setting goals is something I love to do. Goals encourage growth, remind me what is most important in life, & help me keep my passions & dreams alive. I am a very goal driven person, but most of the time, I keep track of them in my head. This year, I want to do things differently. I believe writing things down holds power over the words written. Sometimes just seeing your thoughts on paper (or on the internet) gives them more weight to then turn those words into actions. So today I want to share with you a few of my goals for this upcoming year in hopes that these words spark true action in my life.

Get A Haircut

I have skimped out on a proper haircut for YEARS! Yes, I’ve gotten nice “haircuts”, but none that required more than a straight chop or trim. This year (& soon!), I want to get a nice haircut with proper layers for better styling. Since I’m actually fixing my hair (thanks to my amazing curling iron) more these days, I would like my curls to give my hair some body rather than just hanging out at the bottom because my hair is basically all one length. Maybe I’ll post some haircut inspiration in my Instagram stories soon…

More Videos

Some of you guys might have seen my recent Q&A on my Instagram stories, which was a huge step for me. I typically shy away from speaking on camera, but I want to give it a fair try. In order to get better at it, I have to just keep trying & putting myself out there. I want to get to know you guys more & let you get to know me as well, & I believe things like being more present on my Instagram stories will help make those things happen. Who knows…maybe I’ll even start doing live tutorials?!…

Build Community

To carry on with what I was saying before, I want to build a community with you guys. I want to provide an environment here on F&F for honest communication & true friendships. Maybe that looks like responding to people faster & with more thought out answers, but that also means I need to hear from you. In order for me to achieve my goal of building a community here, I need to hear feedback from you. If you liked a post & you want to see more things like that, tell me! Maybe you didn’t care for reading something, tell me that too! If you have a question about a post, or really about anything…like my favorite cereal or something…just ask me! I want to hear from you! Let’s build an F&F community together!

Give Back

I’ve been thinking about these two words for quite some time now, & wondering how I can accomplish them in my day to day life & also here on my blog. Whether it’s making more meaningful relationships, encouraging those around me, or volunteering somewhere, I’m searching for ways I can give back to my community to help better our world. I’ll keep you updated on this one…but in the meantime, if you have any suggestions on ways to give back, please leave them in the comments below.

Write More Letters

I honestly think this is a goal every year for me. I don’t know why this doesn’t come naturally to me, but I want to be a meaningful letter writer so bad! My thought is that if I have some really beautiful stationary, I’ll be more inclined to write…do you think it will work? Any advice? I feel a stationary haul coming up soon…

Travel

This one is a little cliché, but in my 25th year, I traveled to New York, D.C., Oklahoma, Maine, Paris, & Africa! Now I don’t want to stop! I am wanting to travel near & far. My goal is to save money & miles to be able to take weekend trips places closer to home, while also taking a trip or two out of the country. A few places on my list include: Spain, London, Japan, PARIS AGAIN, Boston, Charleston, & Nashville. Here’s hoping I’m able to travel more this year!

Are you a fellow goal-setter? What are some goals you have for this year? xx

RVA Fall Flavors: @ Can Can

48 Hours In Richmond Guide

RVA Fall Flavors @ Can Can

Hello Everyone!

It’s time for my second RVA Fall Flavors!

I have gone to the beloved Can Can twice recently to test out some of their seasonal drinks, & I have no doubt that I will be back again soon. They are offering 5 fall drinks right now, & the two I have tried have been absolutely delicious.

My first choice was the Harvest French Press. I have to admit, I’ve had this before, & it’s now an all time favorite of mine. My boyfriend even loves it! They have a small & large option which is perfect for either going solo or sharing with a friend (or date). For me, it’s perfectly sweetened & spiced to add just a splash of cream & call it good. Such a special fall treat!

For my second choice, I ordered the Maple Spiced Chai, & it surly didn’t disappoint! I love a good chai latte, & the hint of maple was just divine. I will say, if you don’t love sweet drinks, this might not be your go-to, but I quite enjoyed it on my lovely Sunday morning brunch date.

My sweet treat of choice with both drinks was a chocolate croissant. This was not a seasonal treat, but a good year round choice that I just couldn’t resist.

How To Find Quality Pieces At Affordable Prices

Hello Everyone!

It’s about time for another Instagram Outfits update!

I have really been embracing fall tones this past month, hoping that the weather will change with me. The leaves are starting to change around here, getting me all excited to break out my chunky sweaters & boots. But until then, I’m embracing the colors & textures of fall in the lightest way possible.

I’m really into the look of mini skirts with long sleeves or sweaters. The bare legs gives a really cool vibe while the sleeves provide the warmth on top.

I have also been loving this burgundy bag, as you can see. It just goes with everything! This crossbody is the perfect size because it’s small, but still big enough to fit everything I need in it. (& more…you know what I mean if you’ve seen my Instagram stories lately…lol)

The Wrap Dress

*Major sale on dress worn above^*

Hello Everyone!

Today’s Dress Week post is dedicated to the beloved wrap dress. (Catch up here & here.) When I think of a wrap dress, my mind immediately goes to DVF & her icon wrap dresses. There is something so classic & elegant about a wrap dress. The shape it creates on a woman is so flattering, it has no choice but to empower women. No wonder I feel all the Parisian vibes while wearing one. It’s the, “I just threw this on” look, while also, “I look good & I know it.”

Basically this silhouette is magic. No wonder I have literally been living in them recently.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to wrap dresses! They are everywhere right now. Coming in a variety of forms, you can find one that suits you best. Stock up on a few casual ones like this one or this one  for those day when you don’t want to fuss with an outfit, but you need a good one. Purchase a fancier option for your next date night, or invest in the OG of wrap dresses. (This one is giving me all the DVF vibes at a fraction of the cost!)

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites down below. I already own a few of them…but I’m dying for the rest of them to find a home in my wardrobe! Maybe they can find a home in yours? xx

Stay tuned for more fall dresses all week long! xx
