How a watch is improving my self care routine

Wooden Wrist Watch

Here’s something you may not have noticed about me: I rarely wear a watch. But lately, time has felt like it’s flying by… so when JORD Watches reached out to me, I couldn’t wait to collaborate with them! Their range of hand crafted all-natural wooden watches for men and women are truly beautiful and choosing one was a tough decision.

I opted for the Frankie – Koa & Ash as I love the ash face and unisex style. The watch was gorgeous enough already, but I decided to make the most of their engraving service and to have a hidden message put on… A reminder to myself: “Make time.”

Life can be crazy, and you can often forget to enjoy the little things. Looking at this watch, and thinking about the time that’s gone into making it, reminds me to make the moments count and make time to do the things I love… I’ve been spending some me time lighting a candle and rereading one of my favourite books, or enjoying the view from my balcony with a cup of green tea.

As for the actual watch – wow! I couldn’t believe the high quality of the packaging and the attention to detail. These watches really are something special. The wood I chose, Koa, is native to Hawaii – a place I’ve never been but would love to go. I definitely think I’ll have to take my own advice and make time to travel! 

I’m very excited to announce that I’m collaborating with JORD Watches for a giveaway! Click here to be in with the chance of winning a $100 Gift Code (and all runners up will receive a $25 Gift Code!) 

I absolutely love this watch and everything JORD stands for – creativity, uniqueness and sustainability. (Oops, I almost went a bit Ru Paul there guys!) Let me know what you think in the comments!
