What I Cannot Travel Without

To travel is to live. Traveling opens up your eyes to new cultures, people, and experiences. While I love traveling I always need to have a few key items with me which are essential to the trip. Here is one item I cannot travel without:

Jord Watch

Traveling with a watch is essential! Not only is it a great fashion accessory drawing my whole outfit together, but it is always reliable and helpful. Whenever I can’t use my phone, my watch is always there. Lately, my JORD watch has been stealing the show. JORD makes some incredible watches made out of species of wood. They created timepieces meant for a modern lifestyle, yet using the highest quality crystal, wood, and movements. JORD values sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living because the value of a watch is greater than just telling time.

I ordered the Frankie Dark Sandalwood & Smoke JORD wood watch and absolutely love it. This gorgeous, automatic watch is beautifully crafted if I do say so myself. It is sophisticated as I can’t keep my eyes off of it when wearing. The watch pairs up nicely for a casual day out, important business meeting, or a romantic date night. Triple win! So often we see watches with metal or leather bands, but rarely do we ever see any wooden watches out there. I feel that wooden finishes are so much more versatile and unique.

NOW CLOSED: Okay it’s giveaway time! I am so excited to share with you that my friends at JORD and I are giving away a $100 gift card to one of my readers! I know what you’re probably thinking, “I never win giveaways” but don’t worry I got you covered. Every entrant will still receive a $25 gift card to JORD just for entering, pretty cool right? 

What are some items you cannot travel without? Let me know!

    This is such a timely post. We’re getting ready to leave for spring break in just a couple of weeks and I always love to read what everybody else tucks away in their suitcases. ps: the little bird on your hand made me smile!
