5 year anniversary gift - JORD wood watches

6 years ago I met my now husband and 5 years ago I married him. So yes, it is our 5 year anniversary this month - woohoo let's celebrate! In France we call the 5th wedding anniversary "nuptials of wood" were you're supposed to give your spouse a gift made out of wood. A few month after we met and while we were still living far away from each other, on two different time zones, I got Anthony a watch. It was a special one because it had two dials for each of our time zones. One was set to his time in San Francisco, and another for my time, in Paris. So he could always know what time it was for me without having to calculate 9 hours ahead.

When I found out about these unique JORD wood watches I felt like it was meant to be. And I have to be honest with you, at first I wasn't so sure about them and thought they would be too heavy. But they're really super pretty and light. Everything about the watch is made to perfection - from the packaging to the details of the wood. I loved that I could adjust the wrist band to make it fit perfectly.

I wanted to get two different models for us but still wanted them to match as much as possible. I got the model HYDE in Walnut & Black for Anthony and the model FRANKIE in Dark Sandalwood & Smoke for myself. I now love that we have matching watches. And I love that we are now on the same time zone and don't need two dials - I mean life is really much easier and fun that way! ;)

Oh and a small detail but kind of important to me - I never really thought about it before but wood surprisingly matches with lots of colors. So I'm gonna be able to mix and match it with a lot of outfits. Big bonus point!
They are the perfect gift so if you want to make someone else, or yourself, happy just go shop them at JORD. There are lots of options for everyone's taste.

I'm also doing a giveaway on my Instagram soon, so if you want a sweet deal stay tuned! Till then have fun shopping.

Sweet dreams are made of these - Sugarfina

If I had sweet dreams I wish I'd have come up with the same idea as Sugarfina. As a real French girl, I can't help but love delicate sweets that come in such a pretty box. The first time I discovered Sugarfina was over a year ago. I didn't know what the store was, but the beauty of it attracted me. Even before tasting the candies, the store itself is candy for your eyes. And it really didn't take me long to fall in love with the actual products too.

While speaking about our favorite places to go for sweets with my friend Julia, I told her we should do a photoshoot in a Sugarfina store if they let us. And they did - so here we are playing around in what looks like a little dream come true. First we had a blast doing the photoshoot, because who doesn't like some girl time surrounded by candies? And let's not forget candies made of champagne and rosé! And second, we were so happy because the staff was nice enough to give us a huge Bento Box which I'll review in my next post. I got 9 different flavors that I'll have to tell you all about!  I tried to ask Mason what he thought about them too, but he was too busy eating them all. I guess a mouthful with a smile is probably worth more than words, haha!

Back to school - Gabby Box Panda Backpack

It's that time of the year where you have to get ready for school. I've tried not to think about it this summer but I can't keep ignoring the fact that Mason is starting preschool in a week. So I got him his very first backpack from Bessonjoujou by Gabbybox and I think I made the perfect choice because he's been wearing it every single day since we got it even though I told him it was for school and not for now. But I can't go through tantrums now so I'd rather let him have his way! It's supper cute and really well made. The straps are removable and adjustable, you can even attach them together on the front so it doesn't fall off. I love the round handles so it's easy for Mason to carry it around if he wants too. The design is by far the cutest I found online - because this mama is so tired of everything super-heroes related! They had a version with a star you can find here , I went back and force for a while as to get the panda or the star but thought Mason would probably enjoy the panda one more. You can now get one or anything else you'd want one their site Gabbybox for 20% off with code "myloveandbeyond20"

If you get a cute backpack for your little one please tag me on instagram as I'd love to see your pics and how much you love it too!

Midi skirt early fall outfit

I'm pretty excited about this look because I've been looking for a midi skirt for a very long time!
I've always find it very hard to find one because I'm short and not super skinny so most of the time the length is way too long. I've tried many and never found one that fit me. But today I can finally say that I found one. The most perfect and beautiful skirt I've tried in a long time. It was kind of love at first sight! I'm just obsessed! I've been so into skirts lately but really wanted to wear a different length and found it so frustrating not to be able to get something different until today. I got it in a green stripes version but they had a cute light blue one too. The bow tie around the waist completes it perfectly and you just need a simple t-shirt to wear it with and the look is perfect! Oh and I should probably mention my hat too because I'am as obsessed with it! Just the color is to di for. I've been wearing it almost everyday since I got it!

The entire look is shoppable below girls!
