Valentine’s day is around the corner. It’s the season for roses, chocolate, engraved necklaces, engraved rings and engraved watches.
Around this time, I can’t help but reflect on my past relationships. While this post is not my official 2017 sum up/reflective post (keep an eye out for that next week), I can say that the most useful lesson I learned in 2017 – as it relates to dating – is the importance of WAITING and being INTENTIONAL. Waiting for the right time, waiting your turn, waiting for the right one.
More importantly, I learned that while I wait, I shouldn’t waste.
This is where time management comes in. Time management and planning is so important to me this year. I find that if I don’t allocate my time to accomplishing specific tasks throughout my day, I feel like I’ve wasted my entire day. Who else feels that way? It’s such an annoying feeling.
I know we are in the digital age and wrist watches are almost synonymous to accessories now, as people don’t use them for what they are meant for: time keeping. But, I’ll be the first to admit that once I get curious about the time, my hands don’t reach for my cell phone, instead, my eyes still dart towards the watch on my wrist. Pretty old school, I know.
This is why I was so excited when JORD sent me a gorgeous rose gold, wooden watch. You read right, wooden watch. Don’t you just love when companies are disruptive? In a world of leather and stainless steel watches, JORD decides to make wooden band watches. Pretty impressive and unique, I think.
I’ve never had any engraved watches, or gotten any engraved gifts so I’m quite stoked for my first one! Any thoughts on what I should write on my watch? I have to be careful what I chose! Ha.
The good news is that JORD has also offered to give my followers 10% off their valentines day purchases as well as a chance to win $100 to be put towards any purchases on the JORD website.
With Valentines Day being one month away, I know people are on the look out for heart felt and thoughtful gifts for their loved ones. Whether you are going to be spending this day with your significant other or, like me, you’ll be indoors watching your favourite romantic movies with your friends/family, a lot of us derive joy from making an item on the wish list of our loved ones come to life.
What I like the most about this watch is that it’s customizable. If your loved ones would appreciate something a little more thoughtful, you could also get personalized engraved watches for them.
Head over to JORD’s website to look through their beautiful collection of wooden, environmentally friendly watches and enter the giveaway , if you are interested! You have until January 21st to enter.
Have you gotten any engraved watches or gift before? If so, what did you engrave on it?
