JORD Wood Watches Review

Hello all! Something a bit different today, and *surprise* it's actually some newly created content.  I received this lovely wood watch from JORD a couple weeks ago, and have put together a neat little photo spread to show it off.  I'd forgotten how much I love doing things like this; here we go!

The model I got was the Fieldcrest in Zebrawood & Maple.  The packaging presentation was absolutely beautiful, as you can see below.

It came in a wooden box with the JORD logo on the top.  Underneath the cushion holding the watch, there was a cleaning cloth, a warranty card, and a few extra links.

Inspired by the natural simplicity and elegance of the watch, I painted my nails in two coats of the earthy but rich LaCC 1981, and added a row of gold loose glitter along the base of each nail.  Topped off with one coat of Seche Vite, as always.

Of course I was delighted to find that the watch fit perfectly.  In terms of size, it's a bit on the chunky side for a women's watch.  I personally prefer larger watches, so this was absolutely perfect for me.  However, if you're one who prefers smaller, more streamlined watches, this particular model may not be for you.  (I actually only own one other watch, and it's even larger than this one.) Luckily they have got quite a good selection of models, so I'm sure there's something for everybody.

I've been wearing it around quite a bit over the past couple weeks, and have gotten a few compliments on it which is always lovely.  It is quite a unique piece, and I'm glad to have added it to my wardrobe! They are a bit on the pricier side (for a young professional artist like me who doesn't get paid very much) but if you're looking to treat yourself, this is definitely an awesome piece.

This watch retails for $120 USD, or £77 GBP at the current exchange rate.  You can find this specific model here, and also browse the rest of the JORD watches collection

Skittlette from the Vault

Hello!  It feels slightly strange to be writing a post again, since I haven't blogged since January.  I didn't stop for any other reason than that I found it wasn't really compatible with my work schedule.  Being a professional ballet dancer in a company that does lots of performing has been amazing, but unfortunately I've got to wear nude polish when I'm onstage, which is quite frequently.  I'm not sure if I'll get back into blogging regularly, but I've got quite a few photos piled up in folders that never got posted, so I'd at least like to get those shared.  Beyond that, I have still been doing my nails frequently, so I may pop up from time to time with new stuff.  

There have been some other major changes with me, the main thing being that I'm now living in England as an Irish citizen.  Once I finished the season with the ballet company in Toronto, I moved to London and have been here with my family since May.  I will be starting with a ballet company north of London in just over a week now, which I'm very excited for!  

Anyways, I know you're all just here for the nails (if any of you are still left after my unplanned hiatus!) so here's something I hauled from the vaults.  This was from a week-long stint at the end of January where I went oval before filing them down to nubs again. 

The polishes used here are LaCC 1973 (purple), LaCC 2005 (white), LaCC 2002 (black), and A England She Walks In Beauty.  The houndstooth pattern is from BM-322.  

So I *guess* if I get back to posting enough, I'll be one of the group of English nail bloggers now?  Anyway, I know my performance schedule this coming year will be absolutely crazy, as we're touring all year and doing about 130 performances all over the UK.  But I'll work on clearing out the vaults for now, and beyond that maybe find time for the occasional post once in a while.
Thanks to all of you who've stuck around! :)
