Hi everyone! I'm back with another blog post two days in a row! Crazy, right? I'm on a roll! This is going to be an exciting post because I know there's been some anticipation about it after the teasers I put up on Instagram and Facebook a few days ago. I'm happy to announce that I've partnered with JORD Wood Watches and I'm glad for the opportunity to tell you more about the company and about my new favourite accessory. The best part is, they're holding a GIVEAWAY so keep reading to the end of this post to find out how you can enter to win your very own watch!
Before I say anything further, I want to let you know that this post was sponsored by JORD Wood Watches; I received a complementary watch from the company, but all opinions are my own. In fact, after I was approached by them (but before entering into the partnership), I coincidentally happened upon the company's booth at the Gentlemen's Expo in Toronto and I got to talk to the reps in person and, most importantly, I got to check out the watch samples they had on display. After seeing them, I knew I needed one of these watches in my life!!! I mean, the photos of them online are gorgeous on their own, that much was already obvious, but after seeing them for real and trying them on, I got to see their amazing quality first-hand.
The watch I picked out (pictured above and below) is the Frankie series Zebrawood & Champagne women's watch. I love it for its neutral wood tone and equally neutral champagne face colour. And let's be honest, I like the name too - y'all know how much I love my bubbly, lol!!! Seriously though, because it's neutral it goes with pretty much any outfit, and the mix of casual wood material and elegant watch face make this the perfect accessory whether you're going for a relaxed weekend look or if you're getting dressed up for a fancy night out. If you're partial to something bolder with more colour, JORD has a variety of watch faces to choose from as well as a variety of wood types ranging from bamboo to ebony, acacia to sandalwood, and many more. You can see more of their women's watches here, and they have men's watches to choose from too!
A couple more things I want to tell you about JORD Wood Watches that I learned from the reps at the Gentlemen's Expo...
The first is a fun fact: the company name is not pronounced the way it looks, it's pronounced like "yode!" Second - and this is very important to me - the company is very transparent about their sustainability practices and they disclose information about each wood source on their website. I was also happy to learn from the reps that JORD makes the wooden watch parts from the remnant pieces of wood that are too small to be used by the original source. Meaning that JORD isn't going around cutting down forests, they're creating products from the residual wood left behind by other companies that would otherwise have been discarded.
Okay, it's giveaway time!!! It's easy - all you have to do is enter your name and email address at this link by December 18th, 2016. JORD will send you an email confirming your entry, which also contains a $25 voucher so that even if you don't win the giveaway, you'll at least get money off the purchase of a watch after the contest closes! These watches are the perfect indulgence as a present for yourself, and are also a good gift idea for that special someone on your list (I'm actually going to be placing an order myself for a Christmas gift for someone). Once again, here's the link to enter the contest:
Good luck! Let me know in the comments below what you think of these watches. Or give me a shout on social.
