Goodness, I can't believe February is almost creeping up on us! It feels like just yesterday when we were all busy ringing in the new year. As a sweet little pick me up , I'm teaming up with Jord Watches to give one of my readers a $100 towards their very own timepiece. As some of you already know, I'm always wearing a watch; it's the only accessory I wear religiously. Having been someone who has always gravitated towards leather watch bands, I was blown away by the extensive his and her wood watch selection over on the JORD site. It was the vibrant emerald-green watch face from their Frankie series that caught my attention first.
This dark sandalwood & emerald watch from JORD is one of the most unique pieces I have come across in a very long time. Their watches are made from different types of wood such as maple, rosewood, walnut, zebrawood, sandalwood, to name a few. This one is dark sandalwood from Mozambique, East Africa! At first, I was a little skeptical about how a wood watch would look and feel on me. Would a watch made from wood look good on my skin tone? What if I picked the wrong type of wood, and it didn't quite fit with my wardrobe? Now that it’s here, I’m so happy I decided to try them out! They're currently offering personalized engravings just in time for Valentine's Day.
The look of this watch is perfect for the winter weather, and has been pairing perfectly with all my winter knits. It instantly adds a touch of comfort to my outfits that I haven't been able to achieve with my leather watch bands - people won't stop commenting. The watch is just as sleek in person as it is in pictures, and the double clasp makes for such a comfortable pinch-free fit! I have baby wrists, and the watch was sized to perfection. Usually, even after I tell someone my wrist size, I find that I still have to re-size it smaller. I was so happy to try on the watch and find that it fit perfectly the first time around. It's clear that whoever handles these watches knows exactly what they're doing.
If you’re someone who enjoys a simplistic watch that is great for everyday life but still want something with its own distinct look, JORD watches are definitely worth looking into. Lucky for you, JORD is giving one of you a $100 towards a watch of your choice! Everyone who enters will get $25 towards their purchase in the form of a consolation code! To enter the giveaway, all you'll need to do is enter your name and email address over on this link here: https://www.woodwatches.com/g/nerokrishna
The contest will close on 2/28. Both the $100 and the $25 codes will expire on 3/31.
Good luck my beautiful friends + happy almost Friday to you!
