What I Keep in My Wristlet

Now that Braxton is a toddler I don’t need to pack as much for a trip to the store as I used to. Back in his younger days I was all about huge bags and backpacks, but for now I’m relieved that I can get away with carrying a wristlet!

I had never actually owned a wristlet before Braxton was born, so I wasn’t really sure what to keep in it at first (there’s seriously not a lot of space to work with). And while right now I have three and they’re all different sizes, I try to pack the same essentials in each one of them.

1.) The obvious – Cash, Cards, Drivers license.

2.) A hair elastic and some hair pins. I wear my hair down every single day but when I’m at work or if it’s super hot outside, I like to have options!

3.) Pain reliever!! I suffer from chronic migraines so I can’t leave the house without this one.

4.) A small pocketknife. I haven’t had to use this for anything yet but I’m sure it could come in handy in all kinds of different situations. 🙂

5.) Chapstick / Lip Moisturizer. If you read my latest review you know that I suffer from extremely dry skin all year round. If I don’t have chapstick with me at all times my lips burn!

What are some of the essentials that you would keep in your wristlet? I’d love to hear some of your ideas! ❤️

My Favorite Minimalist Accessory: The Most Versatile Wooden Watch For Spring

Happy Friday! Spring is officially in full swing and in true Ohio fashion it’s been sunny and warm one day then cold and rainy the next! Halfway through April I figured it was time to pack away my winter coat, but I found myself digging it right back out just days later.

My big boy will be two years old this year and because of that, one of my goals as the weather gets warmer is to really slow things down and make the most out of the days we share together. After all, they’re only little once, right? Balancing everyday life and busy little toddlers can make things pretty hectic, but one thing that’s helping me keep track of my schedule is this amazing wooden watch from JORD.

The Koa and Rose Gold wooden watch from Jord’s Cora Collection is perfect for a stylish mom on the go; the Swarovski crystal markers are absolutely stunning, too! JORD makes hand crafted watches for both men and women with wood sourced from all over the world.

This particular watch was crafted from Koa wood – did you know that Koa wood was historically the material of choice for carved ocean-going canoes? That fact alone is enough to trust the durability of this wooden watch!

Then there’s the color scheme. Who would have guessed that warm brown tones and rose gold could look so chic?
