Spoil Dad this Father’s Day with a Jord Wooden Watch!

jord in box

Father’s Day can be tricky. Your dad and/or husband  do so much, but a tie or a round of golf don’t show your appreciation for all they do. Well spoil him this year with one of the fantastic wooden watches from Jord…. yes you heard that right, wood! I was given the chance to review one of these watches and they are as cool and unique as I imagined. In Oregon I think owning a watch made out of wood I officially just became royalty. Just refers to me as Countess.

Let me tell you a little about JORD watches, they are made from different woods from all over the world including bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, and teak. The glass is made from scratch-proof blue film glass. The best part is that each one is hand-crafted from natural materials making each one truly unique.

The watch in this post is the Delmar Series in green model. The Delmar comes in five design options at the affordable price of $149 USD.

The watch is really amazing in person and its really all made of wood. I love how unique it is and while the watches are a great size the wood makes them lighter than your average watch. The JORD watches are very wearable and a great conversation piece. These are extremely well made watches and would make a wonderful gift for dad, grad or a groomsmen gift.

To clean your JORD Watch you mix two tablespoons of olive oil and lemon juice and apply the mixture to a cotton cloth and then to the watch. Jord watches are splash proof, meaning they will withstand some water being splashed from a kitchen sink, but they are not designed to be submerged in water.

If you are looking for a gift he won’t forget, head over and check out all the great wood watches available from JORD!

Korres Greek Yoghurt Cooling Gel Aftersun

korres after sun

We enjoyed a beautiful and sunny Memorial day in Oregon yesterday. And unfortunately as I forgot to reapply my sunscreen I was a little red by the time we packed up the BBQ. I grabbed my Korres After Sun Cooling gel and applied it as soon as I noticed the burn.  My skin drank this lotion in! Its so light and fresh and felt so great on. Its not stick and has a fresh and clean scent that smelled as great as it felt on my skin. I used it on my face, lips and shoulders and they all felt better right away.

Today the redness is gone and my skin feels moisturized and soft. This will be a staple for my beach bag this summer!

Kate Spade Live Colorfully

Kate-Spade-New-York-Live-Colorfully-Perfume

I generally have a hard time with floral fragrances and at first sniff I thought Live Colorfully would be the same.  At first application I wasn’t in love with Live Colorfully but within a minute the dry down I was in love with this amazing scent. It’s a crisp floral  that is fresh and sexy without smelling like an old lady.

This is now my go-to fragrance for day or night, I can’t get enough! If you are looking for a new summer fragrance check this out, a great scent that lasts all day.

Kate Spade ‘Live Colorfully’ eau de parfum $75-$95
Layered with bright florals, citrus and musk for a dazzling lift of life, the fragrance plays upon the skin the way light plays upon the bottle. It dances and shifts in olfactory notes that vary throughout the day. Inspiring the wearer, it interacts with the world as a slightly mischievous yet eternally chic reminder to live every moment in color.

Notes:
- Top: sparkling mandarin, pink water lily, star anise.
- Middle: tiare flower, golden gardenia, coconut water.
- Base: sheer amber, musk, Tahitian vanilla.

Visit your local Nordstrom store to check out Kate Spade Live Colorfully or purchase online at www.nordstrom.com.
