JORD Engraving – The Perfect Gift

jord-wood-watch-2 jord-wood-watch-4 jord-wood-watch-10jord-wood-watch-8 jord-wood-watch-5 jord-wood-watch-1 I have a coworker named Stephanie, who has turned into one of my very good friends.  When I needed help transitioning into my new job and had a ton of questions, she was happy to answer them.  When I started my blog and Instagram, she was one of the first to subscribe and like every single post.  When my dad was having health issues, she was there to offer support.

When I found out JORD Wood Watches now does watch engraving, I jumped right on it.  After my original JORD Wood Watch post a few months back, Stephanie always commented on how much she loved my watch. I figured, this is the perfect gift to give to thank her for all that she has done for me this past year!  The wood engraving that JORD does is great.  You can get it on the back plate ($35.00) or the side of the cedar wood presentation box that the watch comes in ($45.00).  There are two engraving styles – block and script.   It takes up to 7 business days for your watch to be ready to ship after the engraving, so make sure you order early for the holidays!  This is not a last minute gift.  However, it actually only took about 4 days for my watch to ship.

When it came time to pick a watch for Stephanie, I picked the Frankie 35.  Why?  Because she loves rose gold and has casually mentioned that the face on my watch is too big for her.  Also, I love my Frankie watch.  It’s lightweight and really unique because of the wood band.  I decided to have Stephanie’s name engraved on the back of the watch.  I mean, who hates having their name on something?  NO ONE!

I got the watch in the mail and had to open it to make sure that everything was in tip top shape.  I was incredibly jealous to see that JORD had updated their presentation boxes.  The watch now comes with a magnetic top (instead of the sliding top), a drawer on the bottom to hold supplies, an oil pen for the wood band, and a cloth to clean the watch.  WOW!  If Stephanie’s name wasn’t engraved on the watch, I may have kept it for myself!!!

It’s the perfect engraved gift!  Lucky for my readers, I am working with JORD Wood Watches again this holiday season.  Sign up and you will instantly receive a $25 e-giftcard to use towards the purchase of one of their watches or services like engraving.  I am already thinking of purchasing a few for my close friends and maybe even a new one for myself!

I cannot tell you how long I have waited to wear all black again.  Summer is cool and all, but the light and bright colors just ain’t my thing.  What is my thing is ALL BLACK.  #alldayeveryday

No, but seriously…I love black.  You can ask my coworkers.  I wear black probably 4 out of the 5 days that I work.  I wear it so much people probably think I wear the same exact outfit every single day.  Black just makes you look put together, chic and did I mention slimmer?  Who doesn’t love that?

I was in Little Tokyo during the summer and my good friend who I stole this dress from, was looking at a green bomber.  I had always wanted a BLACK bomber – so hence, that’s how I got this nifty little jacket.  I have been waiting so long to wear it and now, I can wear it!  It’s supposed to “rain” today in LA.  Do I believe it is going to “rain?”  No, but you can bet that I will be wearing boots and this bomb ass bomber!

Also, I must mention that I am wearing my new Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl.  I will be doing a review very soon on the items I bought during my haul, but it’s my new Fall Lip Color and I love it!

JORD Wood Watch Review + Giveaway

I love watches.  I wear one EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.  When I used to work at the big fancy, we had to look at the sales numbers every hour.  Sometimes if I forgot to wear a watch, I would actually go and buy one because I couldn’t be without one!  I would literally keep looking at my left wrist with nothing on it.  So I guess you can say that I grew accustomed to wearing a watch and checking to see what time it is all the time.  Also, I don’t like being late and I get anxious if I think I don’t have enough time so…. watches are my thing.  You can guess my excitement when I was contacted by JORD to do a review of their wood watches.

I requested and received the Frankie Watch in Zebrawood & Champagne ($189).  It has a big face which I LOVE and has my favorite metal!


Now I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical before I got the watch.  Having worn metal band watches for the last 15 years, I wondered how a wood band watch would withstand every day wear.  Well, I have been wearing mine for about 2 weeks now and I have to say that I am a fan now. Here are a few reason why I love this watch.  It’s light weight, splash proof, and made out of really great materials.  My band is made specifically out of Zebrawood, which is a luxury hardwood.  The face of the watch is made out of Sapphire Glass, which is one of the hardest and scratch resistant materials on earth.  


The best part?  JORD has offered to sponsor a giveaway for my readers!  Simply CLICK HERE to enter.  One winner will be chosen randomly and win a $75 e-voucher for a JORD Wood Watch!  Everyone who enters (excluding the winner) will get a $20 e-gift card that can be applied to any watch on their website!  The winning e-voucher will expire after 1 month after the ending date.  Giveaway ends 09.18.16.
