JORD Watch Giveaway

Hi Friends,

I often think as the day as a deposit of time. Each day, each person is allocated seconds, minutes and hours and what we do with those precious moments are up to us. Will we spend them wisely or withdrawal without caution? Especially around the New Year, time is all anybody can think about. I’ve decided to be more intentional about mine. I want to keep a close eye on each interval, and what better way to do so than with a stylish timepiece that accentuates every ensemble.

I am a serial minimalist. I don’t wear a lot of accessories or extra, unnecessary articles of clothing. When I do, they have to be worth it. I discovered JORD (pronounced Yode, like Yoda but without the -a) in the one place I discover a lot of new brands, on Instagram. I was immediately attracted to their sophisticated mix of natural and largely re-claimed materials while still holding stylish design in high regards. Compared to others I have seen, the JORD wood watches stand out in terms of impeccable craftsmanship, classic style and top-tier quality.

I personally have the Cora Polaris Walnut and Midnight Blue JORD timepiece. This watch sets your eyes to the stars quite literally as the face is adorned with Swarovski crystals that align in a way to depict the Little Dipper. The earthy walnut accents are complemented with the rose gold tones to emulate the evolution in feminine design. It is strong, mysterious, subtle and illuminating, all the qualities you want hugging your wrist every day. It is a constant reminder that the universe has a lot to offer, something I think more of us need to hear at this time.

For me personally, I would style my Cora Polaris one of two ways:

1) I would pair this piece with an outfit that includes pink accents to enhance the rose gold tones of the metal.

2) Because of the subtle complexity, I would pair my watch with a monochromatic neutral outfit meaning head to toe black, white or camel pieces.

If I haven’t convinced you yet to invest in these beautifully-crafted watches, maybe this will aid in your decision. I have partnered with JORD and am gifting one lucky winner $100 off any JORD watch of your choice.

While you are perusing the exquisite JORD options, keep in mind that most watches have additional options for customization by mixing and matching faces and woods.

Gifts Under $50

Me Again,

Now three times in one week?! Must be the holidays or something. Or it’s just me freaking out about buying presents *typical* I just HAD to post one more time for my last minute Christmas shoppers. If you’re stressed, take a deep breath because it is going to be alright!

The holidays are a rough time for our wallets. From normal monthly bills, to events, gifts, traveling, the list seems endless and money seems to spontaneously grow wings.

But just because it’s the most wonderful time of the year doesn’t mean that every gift you buy has to be $100+. There are plenty of fantastic gift ideas out there that you can purchase for $50 or less. Stocking stuffers, small wrapped presents or handouts to colleagues, I have scoured the internet to bring you the best of the best. Here are my top picks for gifts $50 and under.

*None of the above images are my own. They are from the retailer’s site or are stock images.

Sincerely,
