Jord Wood Watch








Dress | Watch

Today’s post features an exclusive wooden timepiece by JORD. This unique watch is by the Cora series in Zebrawood & Turquoise; it’s truly like something I’ve never seen before. To me, an eye catching watch is a reminder to be present and to live in the moment. I remember seeing an illustration of a dog and human sitting together and why dog is happier than a human in that scenario. The human is shown to be thinking about everything else BUT sitting with his dog, whereas the dog is thinking of nothing but sitting with his human. The dog has mastered the power of presence and therefore is truly content and happier. When you’re truly present in everything you do, you get much more out of your time. This is something I’m working on and I encourage you to try to soak up every moment by enjoying the now rather than thinking about anything other than what you’re doing now. Your time will be better spent and you will be much happier for it.

I’ve also teamed up with JORD to host a giveaway. All entries can be placed here by July 20 11:59 pm. The winner will be chosen at random & will receive a $75 giftcard, but everyone will receive a $20 giftcard just for entering :). Good luck everyone!

    I love this story! It is so true that we forget to live in the present. It can be difficult clearing our minds of all that clutter. But I do appreciate how loving dogs can be and you are completely right. It’s because they are capable of focusing on the here and now. I bet you’re more able to do that now that you have your baby girl! Each moment is precious, right?

    • Shveta Sontakey

    I absolutely adore your JORD watch, beautiful! I love the minty color of the face and it look perfect worn with this dress! I also love the story you’ve shared here, which ties in perfectly with the watch. I struggle a lot with enjoying and embracing the now, I often focus too much on the future, like most of our society and it’s definitely not a good thing. It robs from us the present moment, which we’ll never get back. Thank you for the reminder, I definitely needed it! I hope you’re having the best week so far, gorgeous!

      Aww thank you so much, Jalisa! <3

    Wonderful words to live by. Living in the present is such an important exercise of life, but it’s definitely a hard thing to practice and master.
