Keeping Time with My Jord Watch + GIVEAWAY

Featured Image (1)

This post was sponsored by JORD. I received a timepiece in exchange for an honesty review. All words and opinions are mine and mine alone. Please see my full disclosure statement for more information.

I want to be that virtual best friend for all of my Royals in reality. (more…)

If you’re anything like me, you’ll sit there for about 20 minutes, then conclude that this isn’t meant to happen right now, and tell yourself that if you put it off a little longer, something will come to you. By the time you’ve done this process three times, you’re beyond frustrated and just want your linguistic masterpiece to be done. (more…)
