I used to think time was a thief. But you give before you take. Time is a gift. Every minute, every second. – Alice, Alice Through the Looking Glass
As time passes in my life, I’m learning to appreciate it more. I’ve squandered so much time with assignments I shouldn’t have assumed, events that didn’t evolve my career, and individuals that did not inspire me. However, time has taught me a valuable lesson: the more time you invest in your future, the more you achieve. As 2016 comes to a close, I’ve learned to make the most of every minute, spending quality time with loved ones and taking on projects for a cause.
One cause that matters to me is sustainable fashion. I am once again supporting the sustainable fashion industry (see my other post on sustainable denim) with JORD® watches. JORD’s focus is sustainability, efficiency and experiential living. I love brands that shine a spotlight on environmental resources and the use of handcrafting.
JORD designs wood watches from ebony, sandalwood, maple, bamboo and other fine wood. The wood is imported from East Africa–Mozambique, specifically–imbuing each watch with a one-of-a-kind design. The rustic material is modern and versatile, with a sophisticated finish. The ebony-and-gold watch has a high color saturation and uniform texture, lending a clean design to the watch. A JORD watch is a key addition to a minimalist wardrobe.
Not only is each JORD watch one of a kind, it can also be personalized: both the case back and the wood box can be customized with a sweet engraved message for your special someone.
I’ve teamed up with JORD watches to bring you a special gift, just in time for holiday shopping: Fill out this form for the chance to win a $75 e-gift code to JORD’s online shop. In addition, all entrants will receive a $20 e-gift code.
Wearing a JORD watch, you’re aware of moments, not minutes, like I try to be. Happy Holidays! xoxo
