JORD Watch Review & Giveaway!

Since my husband Cary and I met, I have always gotten him a watch as his birthday present. They have been really nice watches too, in a variety of styles. Well, this year was the first time I hadn’t gotten him one because it just felt like he had one for every occasion but he seemed a little surprised not to open one this year.

When the kind people at JORD Watches reached out to me to see if I wanted to collaborate on a Father’s Day campaign and try out one of their men’s watches, I was really excited.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with JORD, they are unique wood watches that are built for the modern lifestyle, handcrafted right here in the USA. Sleek, lightweight and sustainable. Their mission statement is what really sold me on the collaboration. “The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.” Do we need much more of a reminder to slow down and enjoy every second of each day we are given?

Since Cary is a bigger built guy, he always tends to gravitate towards watches with a bigger face but the downside is he stops wearing them after a while because big face usually correlates with big weight. Not this JORD watch. Again, it’s so lightweight, comfortable and seems to match with just about everything. Dress it up, dress it down, it’s still perfect.

Cary’s watch is the Conway Series Walnut & Jet Black. Aside from the weight and overall comfort of the watch, one of his favorite features is the sapphire crystal glass face and luminescent hands. This has been some of his biggest complaints on prior watches I’ve given him and it comes standard on this watch. So it means no scratches on the face plate and no having to find a light to check the time.

The wood on these watches is super easy to clean and just takes a little bit of lemon or orange extract oil since they are made with 100% untreated wood. Because of this, you likely won’t have any type of skin reaction to wearing it like Cary has with many other watches.

If you are looking for a really unique gift or still searching for a Father’s Day gift, I highly recommend one of these watches. Plus it comes with a pretty amazing watch box and FREE shipping. The only downside is that I didn’t get a women’s watch to review but Cary is obsessed and is thoroughly enjoying his early Father’s Day gift.

  • It's been over a week since I was diagnosed with Graves Disease and having to start what feels like an extreme diet list of "no's" and I started out feeling so defeated. The first few days I felt awful. Headaches to the point of nausea and vomiting as my body was detoxing all the things I now couldn't have. Today I'm feeling like I'm getting so much energy, I don't feel as foggy or heavy with that blah feeling. I have been really strict and not "cheated" because cheating now feels like I'm failing myself and my health. Ironically enough, I'm eating MORE at every meal and drinking more water. I've been using my essential oils as the doctors ordered on my thyroid area as well as for other wellness purposes, cooking, cleaning and in my beauty regimen. I feel like the direction of this page and my blog is now shifting. It will always serve as a place to share my motherhood journey but part of that journey is now much more about health and wellness and less about testing and reviewing free stuff. I'm still genuinely angry and upset about the diagnosis but sometimes the bad stuff we go through serves to be beautiful life lessons and good in the end. Here's to one week down and forever to go to restoring my health and life from the inside out! I hope everyone has a great weekend☀️
  • Happy Birthday my sweet KDK! Things sure have changed over the years but one thing that hasn't is what an amazing person and friend you are. Thank you for always listening to me rant, being there unconditionally, and bringing the sunshine and happiness to every early morning! I hope today is as special as you are 😘😘
  • I received some pretty devastating news regarding my health this past week. While it's left me feeling so sad, it's also been a wonderful reminder that we are only given one body to live this amazing life and we need to treat it that way. I decided to open up #ontheblog about the whole ordeal because it's too long of a story for an Instagram post. As @s.chilva would say "one life, one chance." 💕
  • My heart is so heavy with the news from Las Vegas today. I feel sad that my sweet daughter is growing up in a world so full of hate. We are not born to hate. Hate is a learned behavior. Remember that our children are watching every single thing we do and listening to every word we say and from us is where they will either learn to love and respect everyone equally or not. I hope that Teagan always treats everyone how she wants to be treated. 💕 #prayforvegas .
