Spring To-Do list (ft. Socialite Pink jewelry)

Spring brings in the perfect, ideal weather for outdoor activities. It’s not too hot or humid and flowers are in full bloom so I’m extra happy around this time of the year! I decided to put together a list of different things you can do to enjoy the springtime. Feel free to post pictures of yourself enjoying this spring season on Instagram and use the  hashtag #seasonswithsyd so I can follow along with your adventures!

Spring To-Do List

  1. Go to the park: there’s a variety of trails to go hiking, biking, or take a casual stroll to enjoy the good weather! Be sure to pack a bag full of healthy goodies like trail mix (almonds, dried cranberries, and sunflower seeds are a yummy combo!)
  2. Plant an edible garden and/or flower bed in your backyard! This is the perfect way to put your “green thumb” skills to work. If you don’t have your own backyard, look into local community gardens on how to get involved
  3. Host a BBQ/bonfire outdoors
  4. Explore a local botanical garden or flower field.  The Dallas Arboretum has a whole calendar of public festivities like concerts, tours, etc. And if you’re wanting to have a mini road-trip, there’s also the Tulip Fields a little further out of town in Pilot Point, Texas
  5. Berry picking! You can make delicious homemade jams, jellies, and pie afterwards!
  6. Shop at the Dallas Farmer’s Market for fresh flowers, berry jams, or delicious produce. The rainbow selection of fruits and veggies are to die for!
  7. Spring Cleaning: clean out your closet, attic, or any other storage units to sell items at a garage sale or donate them to Goodwill
  8. Find your new favorite wine bar that also makes amazing charcuterie boards
  9. Plan a tea party or picnic outdoors with your girlfriends. Pink lemonade is a must-have!
  10. Update your jewelry collection by shopping from Socialite Pink’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection!


A huge shout out to Socialite Pink for inviting me to be a part of the photo shoot for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection! The whole picnic scene was set up and planned beautifully from the throw pillows to the jars of pink lemonade garnished with mint leaves and blueberries. Not to mention these stunning jewelry pieces! You can purchase the necklace I’m wearing here, it’s such a gorgeous statement piece. Check out more stunning pictures (taken by Jannet Blas Photography) from part of the collection below. My favorite has to be the dream wrap bracelets, they can also double up as a necklace, how cool is that?!

It’s Spring Time-with JORD!

The warm weather is finally here! With fresh flowers blooming and the invigorating air, I like to use this time of the year to go through a spring cleanse with different aspects of my life. I recently teamed up with JORD Wood Watches for a collaboration and a special giveaway for you guys! JORD focuses on creating classic timepieces that are modeled after our modern-day life. Their collections showcase beautiful, elegant pieces that equate pure minimalism and style. The best part is that they have a diverse collection for both men and women. I know we all have a busy schedule so it’s important to know where you need to be and where you want to go, so why not wear a watch that you’ll always love? I want to make sure every moment and minute counts with this beautiful piece, Koa & Ash from their “Frankie” collection. Check out three different ways to spring clean your own lifestyle with JORD.

  • Fresh Start

This is the perfect time of the year to start organizing your space. Start by de-cluttering your room, workplace, and car. Afterwards you’ll feel great by getting rid of all the junk and you’ll have free space to relax and breathe. Organize things in categories between what you actually need and what is just there for show. Being organized means that you’ll have more time to focus on other important things. You can keep track of that time with an elegant watch like mine!

  • Bloom and Blush

The warm weather is a great time to transition your wardrobe to new pieces. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and mix up different styles until you find something that suits you. One thing I love about JORD Wood Watches is the unique style they create by mixing warm toned wood and contemporary designs.

  • Natural Beauty

All of the JORD watches are made from natural wood: bamboo, maple, zebrawood, you name it! How cool is that?! Little things like this help us appreciate the natural beauty of life. Go on hikes, take a stroll in the park, be comfortable in your skin without makeup; embrace natural beauty. You’ll find it enlightening to see what nature has to offer.

JORD Wood Watch

I absolutely love the packaging for this watch, the whole box is carved out of natural wood and looks gorgeous! This watch is so beautiful and unique; I love wearing it everywhere and I’ve received so many compliments. I’m really into the ash color on the watch face. The neutral, muted color helps me pair this watch with any outfit. Unlike other watches I’ve had, it’s not heavy at all and it fits comfortably. You can also get your own watch sized and engraved before you receive it!
