Hi everyone! I have a slightly different post to share with you today!
So you know my revolves practically 89% around books…because I have excellent priorities. But I’m breaking theme today on the blog to talk to you about my collab with Jord Watches! They’ve sent me a super exquisite watch that, when I put on, I instantly transformed into a professional author, here to meet all deadlines, with my super sleek and powerful timepiece. 😌 Truly! It is the kind of watch you wear to feel like you’re here to conquer time and dimensions.
I also fully confess I’m a person who is notices what time it is very intently. I like schedules and rhythms and routines (my family comments that they basically know what time it is depending on what I’m doing because I’m just. that. punctual 😂 🙌🏻). I like packaging my day into manageable piles so I have time to both write and read. I like to turn out at least 3 novels a year, plus I read 200 books. (And hello, yes, I am reading my 185th book as we speak and on track to finish the 200 before 2020!)
Before Jord sent me this watch, I just had this shoddy little plastic watch that is 5mins fast and refuses to calm down. It also beeps at me. I do not like to be beeped at, thank you.
So you know I’d be hyped to have an exquisite quality watch in my life.
So for today’s post I want to give you a bit of a review of the Jord watch I’ve received!
I usually review books, but stretching my creative wings today. I also had a long and serious talk to my hand about how veiny it is. Like could those veins please just lie down. Thanks.

Jord (pronounced Yode) is based in St. Louis, where we are constantly developing new designs. The watches are a sophisticated mix of natural, and largely reclaimed materials, combined with quality movements and components.
I’ve always been a watch person but never owned a decent watch.
➢ I’m pretty effortlessly converted too. It just makes me feel important and I do love the feel and weight of it, compared to my old flimsy plastic thing.
➢ Ngl the walnut finish attracted me like nothing else. WOOD, alright. I blame a childhood obsession with Narnia for this, but I want everything to be wood and/or capable of magic…or of turning me into a professor.
➢ I wouldn’t wear this watch as I knocked about doing chores though. But it came in a nice box, which I straight up am obsessed with. (I also collect boxes. My room is far too full of them and I can’t be stopped.) It also has a little draw to keep cleaning supplies in (which come free with the watch). So you know, it is super nice and sleek, but something you’d be careful with.
➢ HOWEVER. It’s water resistant! There’s so much comfort in that!
Holiday Gifting & Customer FAQ:
