"making the most of your time, because the days are evil"

Hello Sparklies, today I bring you an outfit post I did a while back. I was sponsored by JORD watch to review one of their timepieces. Since the product is a watch, I wanted to share an inner thought of mine.


 I recall my sister telling me a long time ago, ever since I hit my twenties, that time will speed through so .. do wisely. It's hard to realize sometimes how one decade can create so many changes. It may be early to say but I do feel that our twenties can truly affect our lives the most throughout. In most cases, we complete our post secondary education and thus lead to our careers or bounce back and forth to how we make our living today. Some of us meet our life partners and begins new walks of life such as marriage and parenthood. And it's safe to say friendships come in and out the most during these years as they are being tested against various changes and priorities.  As I'm nearing the end of my twenties, I can say for myself, there are definitely room for improvement to how I could've used my time more wisely. Likewise, I've learned a lot as to how I prioritize my time, how to focus my attention to things and people that are more deserving of me.  

Nowadays, I spend majority of my time working so I can achieve a big goal of mine before 35 (could be faster but I wanted to maintain my lifestyle). Meanwhile, spare time is spent on travelling to enrich myself and to cherish people who truly matter.  Continuously, I work on my relationship with God and live to use the talents He has blessed me with. I came across a quote which went viral last year and I cannot express how much I swear to live by it. Surely, you might have seen it here. I will no longer waste time on people who choose to walk out on me... those who are not willing to grow with me. 


Fashion is all about breaking rules, showing individuality and being true to yourself. It's a form of expression. With that in mind, I wanted to experiment military trends with a bit of femininity by mixing it with pearls and florals. 

REVIEW: JORD Wood Watch - Fieldcrest (Green Sandalwood) 

I was contacted by JORD Watches back in June and after some short discussions on my plans for the blog review. The watch arrived about 20 days after. Sadly, it didn't make it in time for my vacation in Korea, Barcelona and the rest of the Europe trip (hence no pretty photos right now).  I do plan on bringing it to my next vacation so let's hope I catch some nice shots then.

As you can see, the watch comes in a beautiful packaging made of wood. Not a single dent or scratch with the shipping process. Inside the box, you will find your watch and the contents are pictured below. The entire package is super presentable for gift-giving season that's coming up.

JORD Watches offer a sizing service so that it is sized to your wrist prior to shipping. They also have a ton of materials for you so that you know how to measure your wrist. I provided my sizing requirements however the watch came to me at original size - no sizing done. I didn't think it was a big deal so I took it to Watch Repair shops to get it done. The moment they saw that it was wood, they turn me away because they believe it was too fragile for them to deal with. After being turned away 5 times on 3 different occasions (this is a huge reason why it took me forever to post), I decided to buy a kit and do it myself.

Finally, my watch is sized and ready to take on the world with me! I'm pretty in love with it. Received tons of compliments everywhere I go! I find it very it easy to match the watch to my outfits. If I were to try a JORD watch again, I might even try a more masculine watch to play up my style such as their new limited edition Dover Series *to die for!!

Here is the breakdown of the watch below. 


Overall, I'm very impressed with the watch itself. It's just super chic and I can't expressed how well it ties into all my outfits. They are hand crafted in the USA, unique yet practical. What I like most is that JORD Watches uses sustainable resources from around the world and they are committed to the best quality and service. Extremely fast response time to all communication to date. The price ranges from $120-$295 USD with free shipping in the U.S or $20 to ship internationally. I'm really enjoying this watch, you will definitely see more of it in my upcoming outfit post.
