How to Dress Up Your Apple Watch

A few weeks ago, Josh surprised me and let me get myself an Apple Watch! I was so excited because I have wanted one for awhile to encourage myself to get back into shape and to get my daily steps in.

I recently started working for a really big company. My walk from my car to my desk is approximately 1,000 steps…not kidding! So I wanted to really track how I was spending the rest of my day and motivate myself to get up and take more water and bathroom breaks. And it has totally helped!! I could go on and on about how much I like my Apple Watch, but I’ll save that for another day!

When I first started looking into these watches, one thing I didn’t necessarily care for was how big and bulky they are. They don’t necessarily scream “business casual” so I knew I needed to find a way to dress mine up.

QUICK SHOP THE POST:

I purchased the rose gold version of the watch because my wedding ring is rose gold. If you’re engaged or married, I would highly recommend matching the watch to your ring! I used to have a yellow gold Fitbit and I found myself never wearing it because I felt like it clashed.

I absolutely love the light pink band that comes with the rose gold Apple Watch (If you didn’t get rose gold but want the pink band, you can buy one here). If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I love pink! So I wear this band any day that I’m just lounging around.

However, I like to be a little more dressed up at work, and sometimes I feel like the silicone pink band doesn’t cut it (although some days if I’m wearing pink I’ll still go for it!).

After lots of searching, I bought 2 new watch bands and 3 new bracelets!

You know I can’t get enough leopard (I remind y’all in every post), so of course I bought a leopard watch band! Even though this band is also silicone, I feel like it looks dressier on my wrist. It is thinner on my wrist and the color of it really blends in with the rose gold.

Then I found some simple rose gold bracelets to match it at Macy’s! All of these bracelets come in rose gold, yellow gold, and silver! The bracelet closest to my hand is by Guess (currently 40% off!!) and it has a slider in the back instead of a clasp. At first I thought I would be really annoyed by the dangling bracelet but I actually don’t notice it!

The other two bracelets are a set by Charter Club and are also currently 40% off! I can’t believe these bracelets are different brands, because they totally look like they were made to be paired together!

If you’re wanting even more dressy of a look, Amazon has TONS of options for you! I bought a delicate and chic band with 3 thin strands of metal (pictured above and linked here) on Amazon for under $30! It is perfect for work, church, or any other dressy occasion.


In short, dressing up your Apple Watch may not actually be as difficult as you’d think! Simply replace your band with a shiny one and jazz up your wrist with more bracelets!

Treat Yourself With This Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

I totally know the feeling.

It’s the beginning of February. You’re in a slump. The weather is probably still miserable but you’re desperately wishing for Spring. You’re cold. You’re tired. No, scratch that. You’re exhausted. You’re burnt out. You have to balance a full day of work, a full night of sleep, cooking dinner for your family, taking care of the pets, checking in on family, working out, socializing with friends. It feels like if one more person asks you to do one more thing, you will surely lose it.

And then you realize….Valentine’s Day. Didn’t we just finish gift-giving season? How are we supposed to find yet another hour in the day to find the perfect gifts for our spouses, gal-pals, etc.?

If you’re like me (which, by the way, I am all the above), you’re totally ready for some serious self-love right now. In my opinion, January and February are the dreariest and down-right worst months of the year.

Let me tell you about a new tradition Josh and I have started for holidays. Rather than dwelling over the things the other might want as a gift (or might awkwardly return the next day), we pick out our own gifts! At first it sounded like a crazy idea. But listen: you. get. exactly. what. you. want. Get yourself something you’ve wanted for awhile but couldn’t justify purchasing without a reason. For our first anniversary last August, Josh let me pick out my own Kendra Scott Elisa necklace. I was so excited because I had wanted one for a long time but knew he didn’t know what they were or what I would want. So we made a date out of it, went to the store, and picked out my anniversary necklace!

I want to encourage everyone to treat themselves this year! I have pulled together a gift guide for you with things that I think would make perfect gifts, that way you don’t have to take the time to shop yourself – gift yourself, gift them to your gals, or send the guide to your significant other and let them surprise you!

Whatever you choose, let’s make this Love Day one to remember!

How To Incorporate Leopard Into Your Work Attire

Leopard print has been one of the most-loved fashion trends since mid-summer 2018, and it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere! If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that leopard has been my most-loved fashion trend since 1993 and it’ll never go anywhere for me! I am seeing fashion bloggers left and right continuing to stock up on their favorite leopard deals.

As leopard print (and animal print in general) is becoming more and more common, I’m hear lots of ladies wondering how to style it for work. I work in a professional setting, so behind the scenes I’m usually in business casual. I incorporated my favorite business brands into this post and can’t wait for your to spice up your work attire!

Get Ahead of the Leather Earring Trend with Amazon

Happy 2019 and welcome back to One Happy Wife!

2018 was a huge year of accomplishments for me.
When 2018 started, I would have never imagined I would be running around in the fashion and beauty world by the end of the year! I have absolutely loved this little side happy and can’t to see where all it travels in 2019.

One of my favorite things about being a fashion influencer is trying out all the latest trends for my followers. I love seeing how trends develop and change as the seasons pass and how they coordinate with each other.

One of the projected trends for this spring is faux leather earrings. I have never worn leather earrings and I am so excited to jump on this trend before it really takes off!

My challenge for all of you is to try out this trend with me.

My Wedding Day

HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!

(Pretend it’s Monday. I’m finally publishing this 3 days later and pretending like it’s still Monday)

“Happy” and “Monday” definitely don’t go together in my book today. Today was just one of those days where everything went wrong.

To start: I quit my job. This was one of  the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make. But I’ll save that for another day and another post.

I spent my last day at work frantically uploading my wedding photos and honeymoon GoPro videos to my Google Drive and Amazon Photos accounts.  I totally forgot I had all these saved to my work laptop so I spent most of the day in tears after realizing it would take 5 and a half hours to upload and I was supposed to turn my laptop in at 10:30 this morning. Luckily my employer was very understanding about the situation and I only have an estimated 50 minutes left to upload my wedding photos and I decided to use this time to make a wedding photo blog post! It’s so easy for us to dwell on the bad things in life even while there is so much good around us! Instead of sulking about how bad my day was today, I want to remember the good times (oh how badly I wish we were sitting on the beach in the Dominican Republic right about now)!

Our official wedding portrait and my favorite pic from the whole day!

Amazon Gift Guide for Men Under $25

Happy official Christmas time!

As you know, I’ve been releasing several different holiday gift guides for you lately. One of my biggest hits thus far has been my Men’s holiday gift guide. If you haven’t checked it out, you can do so here. I plan on making a few more for you before Christmas, but this one seemed worth diving back into first.

Men are H A R D to shop for. Seriously… they already have everything they need and they’re picky about the things they don’t have (cough cough, my husband), making it hard to buy things out of your comfort zone, especially if you fear you can’t return them. And lastly, most men’s products cost wayyyy more than I like to spend on gifts.

That’s why I’ve pulled together your One Stop Shop, Affordable, Easy, Men’s Gift Guide!

All items are under $25, included in Amazon Prime, and approved by my husband!

If you see an item you like in the picture below, simply click on that item and you will be directed straight to the product on Amazon!

Women’s Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

As a child, one of my favorite parts of Christmas morning was digging through my stocking and finding tons of little goodies! My mom always outdid herself with stockings and it always added a little extra surprise. To be honest, my mom still outdoes herself with stockings because she knows how much my brothers and I love it.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to realize that I have no idea how she does it. Finding useful small gifts is HARD. So shout out, mom, for the inspiration to make this gift guide blog post.  I’ve pulled together a lot of my favorite items I’ve received over the years in my stockings and some things that I know I’d love to receive now!

All items are under $20 each so you can make the perfect stocking for any lady in your life!
