At this point in the year we are starting to change seasons. It’s that point in Winter where even Winter’s biggest fan (me!) starts to think of Spring and bright, light colors. Trees begin to bloom and I daydream about taking my hubby and our sweet little Mila-Raven on her first outdoor picnic! My Mila is adventurous like her Mommy and has already gravitated towards the outdoors, and the woods.
If you’ve been around social media lately, you more than likely have seen a giveaway or a collaboration of absolutely beautiful DARK wood watches from Jord . I know I have and I never tire of it, because of the beauty and because Jord checks off all the boxes on my, “unique watch list”. One thing you might not know about me: I am a watch junkie. I’m hooked on watches. Always in search of that women’s watch that is just right for me or if it’s a gift, who wouldn’t like that – because everyone has their own perspective. I also happen to adore things made from wood. My Grandfather was a carpenter, so my appreciation standard of woodwork is high. I suppose it’s in the genes! When Jord wanted to pair up with me for a Springtime Wood Watch & Giveaway , I happily agreed!
There are many different types of wood that Jord uses in their women’s watches and men’s watches. This particular watch I have received from Jord is a Frankie Series Zebrawood , with a round navy face. The face is a perfect larger round navy. Honestly no picture captures all that this blue contains or does its exquisite navy justice. In the sun it pops just the perfect amount of color . It doesn’t overwhelm, and yet shows a deep blue that bounces with the sun. On cloudy days it seems to match – as though this blue picks up on the light you’re in and morphs to that perfect blue for any setting. It’s everything from wild to the perfect mild. This particular wood has a lighter Springtime feel. My Zebrawood matches everything! I can either go all casual – or I can wear colors that are completely contrary to the light, fresh feeling wood and make the watch pop and be the star of the show. It is light enough to wear all the time, but heavy enough to feel it on my wrist. An important check box on my list considering I have Lupus and how something feels on my body has an impact on me.
This may sound strange, but a cool watch helps me to stay in the moment. You see, if I need to know the time, and I don’t have a watch on, I do what most people do… I look at my phone. Our phones have rapidly become (along with many other things) watches. They even make watches that sync up to everything we do….ie: email, text, tweet etc… While this has its place and is good, this is another reason I love the Jord Wood Watch . I find myself needing to know the time, especially now considering that I am a new Mom and have chronic diseases I deal with daily … and the doctor appointments. I like having a daily watch where I am able to just glance at my wrist- and then continue playing with my daughter or chatting with my hubs or friends. I don’t want to run into a potential text that might take me out of a beautiful moment; however with Jord , I don’t run into that. It is such a versatile watch, and has the right feel, which makes it a great easy to wear ‘daily watch’. I can wear it continuously, from changing the baby, dinner date with the Hubby, and even a night out with the gals. Every once in a while I look at it and enjoy feeling transplanted for a moment to a time when I didn’t have all the hustle and bustle, and it relaxes me.
Let me not forget to mention the the box!! THIS BOX !! The box is an entire gift onto itself! I’m extremely into repurposing what we have and this beautiful wood box could be used in so many ways other than just keeping your watch in it. It has an intricate and a bit darker smooth finish, opening with four unseen and strong, but easy to use magnets connecting the top and the bottom. You could have a new jewelry box. I know I do because I just adore anything that is hand-crafted wood.
To celebrate this welcoming of Spring, Jord has paired with me to do a Giveaway ! This giveaway is Officially LIVE and will run until 3/19. One Lucky winner will receive a $100 gift card, and EVERYONE who enters still gets a $25 gift card. Just for entering you get a gift! You can’t lose!!!
Jord doesn’t just make great watches, they take care of their customers and are some of the loveliest people I have worked with – not just in this giveaway. Anytime I’ve had a general question, the people are wonderful to talk to and do their best to help in a timely manner (Yes, Pun intended!)
While it may seem as though Jord is everywhere and that they are a big company – you’d never think that when you speak to them. They are a smaller group of dedicated people – And they will work hard to help you find a great watch for a gift to yourself or someone else.
For now let’s get you signed up for that SPRINGTIME GIVEAWAY HERE !!!
