Getting to Brunch on Time with JORD Wood Watches
I'm a total watch-wearing girl - I have a little bit of a knack for taking my time while getting ready and then looking at the clock going "OMG I'm LATE." Having a watch on my wrist is that super easy, friendly reminder to hurry up - I've got a brunch to head to!
I am loving JORD Wood Watches, luxury hand-crafted watches modeled after a modern lifestyle. The company makes its watches for people who don't just have somewhere to be, but for people who have somewhere to go.
And, that's me! As a blogger, I've got an incredibly busy schedule because my own original content creation is one of my top priorities. I review different brunches around Los Angeles very frequently. When I'm not brunching, I'm off to private media tastings, covering events, heading to meetings, networking... the list goes on! It's imperative that I'm always on time. Of course, I love to do it stylishly because.. #armcandy.
I love the Frankie 35 series model in Dark Sandalwood and Mint. It's such a statement piece because the dark color of the wood and the cooling color of the mint combine to create something that truly stands out. The mint color brings an unexpected, eye-catching and visually stunning characteristic to the face of the watch. It's hard not to notice!
I am not only obsessed with stacking it with some of my favorite For Keyps and Riccova Circle Cuff bracelets (because it is such a cool focal point on my wrist), but I love capturing it in my photos because it brings such an outstanding, unique color into the scene.
I became so much more aware of aesthetics, food styling, and how to creatively photograph an every day moment. It's a lot more challenging than it looks, but it's where the fun comes in. It'll be nice to look back one day and remember different random components of a certain day all graciously organized into one photo.
My Frankie 35 series watch makes the perfect watch to include in my brunch flatlays! At my recent brunch venture to Lulu's Creperie Cafe in Laguna Hills, I indulged in some yummy breakfast crepes and (of course) needed to document how pretty the dishes and my watch were together!
This is what a typical brunch with me looks like - endless photos being taken at every angle so I could make sure to get all the details of what's in front of me into something beautiful!
A typical day for me is having a bunch of things going on at several different times during the day, and with my Frankie 35 series watch, I am constantly reminded that I've got places to go and that I need to be on time! It's the most fabulous reminder on my wrist to make sure I'll be where I need to be on the dot... and while I am there, I just might be sneaking in some pictures of it too!
