as i look around my apartment, with my floor lamp in the kitchen area because my ceiling light burnt out and i cant reach to change the light bulbs, i realize there are clearly many plus sides to having a man around in life. sure, my toilet seat is always down and i can get dressed in the morning without any side eye glances from someone who just doesn’t *get* fashion, but there are parts to a serious committed relationship that aren’t lost on me – parts i do love. the two that stand out the most? making memories with someone and -of course- stealing their closet 😉 the fun part of a true and serious relationship is building up the “us” bond – checking off destinations on a bucket list, trying things for the first time together, meshing lives…it’s exciting! and if you’re a gift giver like i am, i love to document these moments and chronicle them with a little special something. it could be a memento from a gift shop that made us laugh that you sneak away to buy and remember. it could be collecting all the wine corks of nights that mean something special and writing the date on the end to hold on for a long time. maybe it’s as simple as treating them to a nice gift with some engraving on the back for Valentines Day, like with this gorgeous dark wooden watch from Jord – a way to elevate your mans style while leaving a romantic little note engraved on the back.not only is a nice sleek watch something that your man should own and love, but supporting Jord watches also supports small business – which means a lot to me coming from a small business family myself (my parents owned their own company for 25 years!). they reached out to me with a great Valentines Day opportunity AND A CONNNTTTEEESSSSTTTTT (that says contest)(more on that later) and i thought – what a cool way to support a small business from the city of St Louis where i’m from? the wooden watch i got was this gorgeous men’s watch and i can’t wait to gift this baby to a particular love interest in the life of Ashli Pollard 🙂ok. back to the discounts and fun stuff!! it’s actually easy thank goodness, because what’s worse than a contest that has you flyin all over the internet? well the people at Jord Watches are gems and made this easy. click here, fill out the form and BOOM – yer done. just for entering you get a 10% off code so i guess we’re all winners here! my Valentines Day contest ends Feb 19th, if your name is chosen you get $100 off the watch of your choice – which to me, just means $100 for you to go shopping with and you buy your man a new watch! or buy yourself a new watch and spend the $100 at Sephora like a real grown up.
enjoy your Valentine’s Day week (i’m convinced it’s a thing!) and buy something for you boo that says “i’d like to pinch your butt for a few more years” and is also something you can steal for yourself because this one’s definitely a keeper…and by that, i mean the watch *wink*
