It’s funny to think that you all have been reading my blog post and YouTube videos for a year now, and yet all you really know about me is my Cerebral Palsy side. I mean I suppose that makes sense being that’s the whole reason I created Eyeliner and Empowerment in the first place, right? To spread awareness and give my little tips and tricks about living with a disability. I think that needs to change though, I truly stand by the term “you are not your disability” meaning yes I get it I have a disability but my disability doesn’t have me… at least most days it doesn’t and even when it does it’s not all of me. Cerebral Palsy is not your looks, interests or hobbies. There is still so much about each of us when we take Cerebral Palsy out of the equation.
Like for instance I love all things beauty from hair to makeup and fashion. I love, love. Literally. Everything about it, seeing people in love and being in love. I’m a total sucker for Valentine’s day too. So when I received an email form JORD asking to make my fiancé’s Valentine’s day extra special and to be in a partnership with them I was totally on board. To be truthful, I hadn’t heard of JORD when I received this email, but of course I went straight to the source… Instagram. I was blown away with how beautiful these wooden watches were. I was also extremely excited because I knew my fiancé would love it, especially because since we got engaged he has been saying he wants a wooden wedding ring so it knew this watch would be perfect.
JORD is a watch company that makes hand crafted wood watches that are truly unique, using 13 different wood types used alone or in combination depending on the design of the watch. Don’t get jealous ladies there is also a women’s shop as well as the men’s shop too. The one I choose for my fiancé was from the HYDE series Stacked Sandalwood & Olive with Ivory. When it arrived on our doorstep it was elegant from the start in a black matte postal package with JORD printed in white on the bottom right. When opening the box, you flip up one side and then you see it, the beautiful wooden box with a J on it. The wooden watch was placed perfectly in the middle with a small microfiber cloth and 100% natural finishing oil for your watch as well as well as a smaller polishing cloth for the face of the watch. The wooden box that your watch comes in is beautiful, with a magnetic top that comes on and off and a small draw on the bottom. JORD did not skimp with their packaging, it was truly high quality from the moment the package was in my hand.
Opening up and seeing my fiancés new watch for the first time brought so much excitement to me. It was simply perfect. I like to describe it as the wooden “Rolex”. The quality was strong and sturdy, it was trendy yet beautiful and elegant. The best part is your JORD watch comes sized and ready for you to wear along with the option to have it engraved. It was so perfect and I was so excited to give it to my fiancé I couldn’t wait for Valentine’s Day and decided to give it to him early. To say the least, he loved it, like I knew he would. His favorite part was the large watch face along with the small details that JORD puts into their watches to make them perfect.
