It’s a wonderful time of the year, to be enjoyed by all. Whether you are spending quality time with friends and family or just taking this time for yourself to relax, December can be one of the best months of year. It’s also a time for giving. Giving back to those you love and appreciate, and more importantly, giving your time, which is so precious. If like me you live in London, you will know that time here stops for no one and I’m sure that we could all do with more hours in a day. I have zero awareness of time and it’s one of the reasons I have become so dependent on my phone- I always need to know what time it is. This is one of the reasons why I’m now so in love with having a watch- I’m less reliant on my phone and I am more appreciative of time.
Why did I go for the Frankie watch? I love finding things that are slightly different and unique and I had already heard such great things about the wood watches from Jord. So of course I was delighted when Jord contacted me to review one of their watches. There is so much choice on their website (here) and the watches are all so stunning that I spent days going back and forth trying to decide which one to go for. I eventually decided to go for the Ebony and Gold watch which I thought was just so unique and I am so in love with it! The watch arrived yesterday all the way from the US and although I did have to pay a customs charge (£13.60 to be exact) it was totally worth it and I will definitely be investing in other colours and designs! The watch is very lightweight yet sturdy and it is made from the highest quality wood. It even comes in its own luxurious wooden box so that you can store your watch safely. I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received since yesterday and now my boyfriend even wants a matching one!
The best part? The watches look so much more expensive than they actually are, and although the Frankie watch is still $189, it looks like it could be worth a lot more whilst still being understated. I won’t be taking this watch off anytime soon (except to shower- you don’t want these wooden watches getting wet) and I can’t wait to show you other ways I style and wear my beautiful new timepiece.
