All Experience is an Arch – JORD Watch Giveaway

It’s been a while friends!

I’ve been so overwhelmed with my many responsibilities (as a mom, a wife, a sister, a friend, an employee, a social media influencer) that the blog has fallen to the wayside… but I’m back & ready to share what’s been going on in Jen-land.

One of the biggest developments in my life is that we’re expecting baby #2 in about 3 weeks! I know, I know…I should have posted about it sooner on the blog…but MOM LIFE! Well, be prepared to be spammed with baby news, baby products & new mommy stories, because baby girl is coming and I’m going to overshare like usual. To stay up-to-date on all current life events, make sure you follow me on Instagram.

This brings me to the point of this blog…TIME. The expression “Time Flies When You’re Having Fun” has never been truer. The last 9 months have literally flown by in the blink of an eye. Charlotte’s pregnancy seemed to go on and on, but baby girl 2’s pregnancy is FLYING by.

I’ve been stylishly keeping track of the time with my new JORD Watch. I’m wearing the SIER ARCADIA and have gotten so many compliments! It’s classic minimalism designed for versatility. The JORD watch face is a beautiful white marble, and battery-powered quartz analog movement keeps the minimalist silver hands ticking. It actually comes with interchangeable leather and metal mesh band. I prefer the leather for every day as it’s a bit more rugged (I wore it apple-picking this week!), but will definitely be wearing the metal for special occasions.

In addition to beautiful natural watches for men & women, JORD also has Apple Watch Bands and a variety of accessories, including exotic wood sunglasses. One of my favorite things about the company and their watches is that they are sustainable, made of natural materials and offer free engraving to make your watch extra special. 

I actually opted to engrave my JORD watch with a quote that has a lot of meaning: “All Experience is an Arch.” It’s from Tennyson’s “Ulysses” – I know I’m fancy…but actually my grandfather used to say it to me all the time, and it basically means that everything we experience is just a tiny glimpse of something much bigger, but because we experience it uniquely, it’s like looking into a world where nobody has been before. If that’s not the truest quote about motherhood, I don’t know what is!

So for all you mamas, looking to stylishly keep track of time, JORD Watches & I are hosting a giveaway!

We want to give you a $100 off any watch or accessory of your choice. And after this giveaway is over, all participants will receive a 10% coupon code so no one is left out. It is open internationally to men and women ages 18 and up. To enter; CLICK HERE (www.jordwatches.com/g/justjenp). Good luck!

Fox + Wit

Wow! To say it’s been a busy month would be an understatement. Between the frantic driving to/from daycare, a grueling social schedule on the weekends and mastered a fledgling work routine, I don’t know where the time went. The leaves seem to have turned colors overnight and we’re one step away from a snowflake here in Montreal.

The last thing on my mind recently has been blogging (but I have been ALL about Insta-stories, so if you don’t follow me, you better!) But when I came across this online boutique, I knew I had to hop on here and share. Fox + Wit is for all my size 12 and up ladies, for those that love one-of-kind plus size pieces that make you feel like a million bucks. AND, they’ve even started to offer extended sizing (sizes S-L), so everyone can wear fabulous clothes. I connected with Janean, the Fox + Wit Founder, through Instagram because we share the same motto: when it comes to fashion, size doesn’t matter! Her mission is to find unique, modern and fun pieces that you can’t find anywhere else.

Love how different these pieces are! The sweater has a cool, lace-up detail at the back and would look equally great with jeans. The skirt is vegan suede and features a patchwork detail at the front; I took a close-up to show you how pretty the detail is. And the blanket scarf I’m wearing is literally the scarf of my dreams! Not only is is my fave plaid print, I love how cozy and soft it is. The clothes fit true to size, which is rare for a plus size boutique. I wear a 14-16/1X and that’s exactly what I’m wearing here. Also, I’ve been a big fan of tucking in my tops recently. It used to freak me out that my baby belly would show, but I’ve been owning it more and more. Like RuPaul always says, “If you can’t love yourself, then how the hell you gonna love someone else?!”

As a special treat to you, Fox + Wit and I have teamed up to give away a 50$ gift certificate to shop online!
