My Summer makeup, outfit of the day and new JORD watch!
28 Jun 2016
Summer is finally here and it’s heating up here in California. I’m 27 weeks pregnant now and I feel like a whale… My outfits have been very simple and my makeup has been very minimal. I suspect this will be an everyday thing this Summer. Even though nothing is really that exciting, I did want do this blog post, because I’m sure all moms (to be) can relate. Hot day, active toddler, baby bump…who has the energy to dress up? Keep reading to see my makeup and outfit this past Sunday! Also, I have a new watch that I want to show you guys. 🙂
Look at my toddler’s face in the back…haha! That’s his ‘mean face’

–JORD Fieldcrest Watch in Zebrawood & Maple
Here’s a close-up of my new watch. 🙂 I love it! It’s unique, lightweight and totally my style. It was sent to me by a company called JORD. You can find the watch here on their website. The reason why it’s unique, in my opinion, is because it’s handcrafted and made from wood. Specifically, it’s made from ‘Zebrawood’, a luxury hardwood from West Africa (Congo) and ‘Hard Maple Wood’ from Northeastern North America. How cool is that?
JORD uses only 100% natural wood and have stainless steel (304) clasps. They do not use toxic chemicals to either treat or protect the wood, so I do have to make sure not to expose it to sudden changes in temperature and humidity (I shouldn’t leave it in my car on a hot sunny day for example, because the wood might swell and crack). Besides that, this watch is very durable and definitely original.
This particular watch is from the Fieldcrest series in Zebrawood & Maple. You can find the exact features HERE. It retails for $129 and the company ships worldwide (free shipping within the US). When you place an order on this site, you have the option to use the “SIZE THIS WATCH FOR ME” feature on the site and have JORD size the watch for you before they ship it to you. Very handy. 🙂
I received my watch within a couple of days after I placed the order. It comes with a one year warranty, which is great. By the way, if it still doesn’t fit out of the box (this happened to me), you can take it to any local jeweler, who will be able to adjust the pushpin links that the watch is held together with.
