After careful consideration...

After careful consideration I have decided to close this blog.  I have been inactive for a while and to be honest I just don't have time to do it.  I haven't been good about making time for it and I don't see that changing in the future.  I am a little sad because this is where my journey started, but it is time to let it go.  Thanks for those of you who came along for the ride, as random and inconsistent as it was.  I will still be posting on my You Tube: www.youtube.com/girlbehindthechair09. Thank you all.  The blog will still be live for now, but eventually I will probably just remove it all together.  Thanks.

Wood Watch OOTD and Review | www.woodwatches.com

Hey guys today I have the pleasure of reviewing this beautiful Jord Watch from www.woodwatches.com for you guys! This watch was graciously sent to me for review, although I am not in any way being compensated for this post.

This watch has a band completey made of of wood, they make all kinds of colors/styles for men and  for women! This watch is from the Sidney series, it retails for $199. First of all a share a bit about the watch specs.

(check out my current giveaway for jord watches here!)

  • The watch is made out of Maple wood and rose gold
  •  Metal deployment push buckle, with all wooden band
  • Sapphire crystal face
  • Seiko Quartz chronograph stop watch feature
  • Swarovski crystals around face 

The watch is made out of gorgeous smooth maple wood.  I love that it feels like the perfect balance between something straight from nature and delicate femininity. It really can be dressed up or dressed down quite easily and is pretty much perfect for any occasion. Although it is a very well made, sturdy watch, it is quite light on the wrist and doesn't weigh me down at all! 

Heres a look at how the watch closes in the back.  Theres this metal band which is comfortably shaped to fit around the curve of your wrist and then both wood bands snap into place very easily! Something you can put on yourself with no problem. 

Today I paired my watch with a turquoise raglan top, that is more casual with a dressy ivory lace skirt.  I love that it fits with each piece and compliments it nicely.  I chose my fold down light tan and floral boots to add a nice edge to the whole outfit.  This also ties the color tone of the watch throughout the outfit.  

This watch arrived neatly packaged in a maple wood box.  It was all secured and had covers on the face and knobs so it arrived safe and sound.  It looks so beautiful on my night stand or dresser that I have been keeping it in its box.  I have had this watch for a few weeks and I get compliments by men and women every time I wear it.  They range from "Sick watch!" to "That is gorgeous!" and I can't agree more with both statements! 

The only problem is now that I have this watch I totally want more!!

This is from the Cora series, it retails for $275 and it is GORGEOUS.  Made out Zebrawood and turquoise this watch is totally drool worthy.

My final pick, for the man in your life, or for yourself if you are a guy is from the Delmar s eries.
They had so many awesome men's watches it was hard to choose one to feature.  My husband is a total watch nut so I know he would be drooling over all of these. 

This one comes in super affordable at $149! It also comes in lots of different face colors and wood colors.  I love that the shape of these one is different and very masculine looking.  Overall I have been so pleased with my JORD watch and defenitley would purchase a watch from them in the future or give them as a gift.  I don't know anyone who wouldn't love these! They are so unique and stunning. 

If you are interested in a live view and description of the watch, you can check out my video down below of my outfit of the day and my video review. 

Afterwards you can head over to www.woodwatches.com to check out all the styles for yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed! 
Thanks so much for joining me today! xoxo happy watch buying!

Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Foundation vs. NEW Smooth Camo Foundation

Hi guys.  Today's video is comparing and demonstrating two products made my Dermablend.  Dermablend is known and recognized globally for having wonderful products to cover acne, rosacea, birthmarks, discoloration, age spots and even tattoos.  It has made a wonderful difference for those people who struggle with skin conditions on a daily basis.

But don't you HATE when they change a product you LOVE? Well thats what happened to me.  I was a user and lover of the Smooth Indulgence Foundation.  It wasn't as heavy as the cover creme, and got the job done.  You can still find it online (as linked above, link is affiliate) but it stores like Ulta, that sell it for purchase same day, you are going to find it replaced by the Smooth Camo Foundation. 

I had a really hard time getting this foundation to work the same way as the original formula did, but however I did find a technique to make it look FLAWLESS and make it last as long as my original smooth indulgence foundation did.  Don't believe it? I did a side by side comparison! Check it out to see the results!

Hello! Today's video is about my project pan, well sort of.  See I didn't do so great so far on my project pan, and today I dive into the reasons...why.  There can be a lot of reasons why people buy makeup, but make sure you are buying it for the RIGHT reasons.  Today's video, is real and raw. Although I show my progress on my project pan I also discuss some emotional things as well!   Everything from weight gain, retail therapy, stress and make up buying addictions.  But most of all I give myself 3 rules for makeup buying! Lets get to it!
