Sponsored | JORD Wrist Watch + Giveaway

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you've been a follower/reader of mine for some time, you know I'm a big-cheese-type of smiler 😁 Mama Carrizo is the same! She doesn't spend any of her time being upset or down and out because she's a hustler and she goes after what she wants. In June, Mama Carrizo turned 69 and although some ladies don't like to talk about age, Mama Carrizo is proud of how she's spent her time in those 69 years. If you know her in person, you're probably surprised that she's 69 because the lady never stays still. She spends her time working two jobs (gasp, right?), sleeping on a super crazy schedule, and enjoying some hilarious moments with her two daughters. Time has definitely been on her side and so has happiness.

"The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed,
but in being aware of the need to make that time count.
Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time."

Speaking of time, I teamed up with JORD watches to gift Mama Carrizo for her birthday a gorgeous, lightweight, & unique wooden wrist watch. JORD is a St. Louis-based company that is ran by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. They are people focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle like one that Mama Carrizo (& probably you, too) lives! There are woods such as Ebony, Koa, Rosewood, and more like the one she received which is made of Zebrawood and Maple. She picked out one from the Fieldcrest series with a scratch-resistant mineral glass. The Fieldcrest is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3 ATM), which means she can wear it to work or a casual night out with her friends.

Here are a few of Mama Carrizo's favorite things about this watch. Packaging. I know a lot of people don't care about the packaging because they don't plan on upcycling it in some way or even storing the same product in it. But Mama Carrizo and I really liked the attention to detail in this box. It's so obvious from the moment we opened the shipping box that this company cares a great deal about their product. The watch comes in a JORD engraved box where it rests on a JORD stitched pillow. Cute, right? Mama Carrizo told me she especially liked this watch because of it's natural colors. It allows her to wear just about any color combo and attend almost any event without being worried of clashing. She admits that she was a bit worried about the watch being made out of wood as opposed to the usual stainless steel. But once she put it on and realized how lightweight and soft the wood is to the touch, she wasn't worried at all.
