Friday Favorites 1/24

Happy Friday Night,

Here is your reminder that, if you haven’t already, you can enter my JORD watch GIVEAWAY! I am giving at $100 towards a JORD watch of your choice. That could cover an entire JORD watch or I also want you to know that they have amazing Apple Watch bands as well! You can enter via think link: www.jordwatches.com/g/sincerelysydblog It’s as easy as one, two, three! Enter now!

Okay, now that that’s out of the way, happy Friday to you. You know, I though that, after the craziness that was the end of last year, things would start to slow down a little work wise. The exact opposite is my life right now. Check back at the end of February, I should be back to breathing normally by then. In all reality, being busy is good and I’m not complaining! It just means that when weekend time comes, I’m taking full advantage of the two-day mental break.

Speaking of, I cannot wait to get my hair done tomorrow. I usually go about every 6-8 weeks since my hair is naturally dark and I like being blonde, but with holidays and time of the year, I haven’t been since mid-October…yikes. Glad to get that fixed and then spend the rest of the weekend getting my life back in order. What are your plans? If you find some time to take for yourself, here are some great links around the web to keep you entertained! Happy Weekend!

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. All you have to do to enter is click this link www.jordwatches.com/g/sincerelysydblog and fill out the short form. It will take you literally less than 30 seconds. If your uber excited about what JORD has to offer and can’t wait until the giveaway ends, just by entering the giveaway you will receive 10% off gift code for your future wrist piece.

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. Most watch backplates can also be engraved for personalization. All of the Cedar humidor presentation boxes have the ability to be engraved, as well! Every watch comes with a one-year warranty and options for return and exchange, can be sized for the recipient and JORD offers free worldwide standard shipping. They really are in the business of making you look and feel fabulous!

I am honestly so pleased with my JORD piece. It has exceeded my expectations and I cannot wait to style it in the new year. Enter my giveaway via the above link so we can tell time together!

Thank you JORD for partnering with me on this post!

Sincerely,

Wooden Wrist Watch //www.jordwatches.com/widget-article/sincerelysydblog|
