JORD Wooden Watch Review

Hello everyone!  I hope you've been enjoying your summer thus far, because I've been enjoying mine. Anyway, recently I was contacted by JORD to participate in a collaboration with them and their beautiful wooden watches. YEAH! For those of you who aren't familiar with JORD, JORD was derived from a desire for timepieces that model their modern lifestyle. Sustainable, efficient, simple, and influenced by experiential living. Also, these wooden watches are simply beautiful you'll want to run to your nearest computer and purchase one.

I chose the Ely Series in Dark Sandalwood, which retails online for $129. Also for an extra $10, your watch can be sized for you. SCORE! No visiting a local jeweler to have your watch sized. When my watch arrived, it was packaged in a beautiful little wooden box, that I couldn't wait to try on. All I can I truly say is, JORD's Wooden Watches are truly beautiful watches, that are sized just right, and I look forward to incorporating my watch into my wardrobe. Also, for more information about JORD and their beautiful watches, please click here.

Here are several photos of my JORD Wooden Watch...

After opening my Reese's Spreads box, I decided to use my spread on Ritz crackers & sliced apples and I loved it. Not only did it taste good, but it was easy to spread on my crackers and apples. Hands down this is one of the best spreads I've tasted and I definitely plan on buying a jar for my family and I. Also, my boys enjoyed it as well :)

Look What I Got! JCrew Herringbone Vest

This particular vest I wanted so bad, but I didn't want to pay the $120.  So, I watched it sell out in store, online, and go from being a JCrew Factory Outlet backorder item to selling out again. However, this past year I decided I wouldn't wait like I did last year, and I just went ahead and bought it ;) I bought my Herringbone Vest for $109, now it's on sale here for $69.50. Good luck!

Linking up with Penniless Socialite & The Tiny Heart for Look What I Got! Hope to see you there ;)
