Recently I’ve been loving to add a watch to my looks, its a simple way to make your look more classy and sophisticated. And it’s a functional accessory!

I discovered JORD Watches and instantly fell in love with their brand, message and watches! JORD is known for their hand made, customizable wooden bands. When I tell you the packaging and watch smelled like it was take straight from the forest, I mean it!

I wanted to get a watch that would fit with my style, something not too small, but not too large and a metal that already matches the majority of jewelry I wear. So instantly the rose gold popped out to me! I find rose gold to be easy to style and the Koa wood band compliments the rose gold perfectly!

You can bet this watch is going to be making several appearances in my upcoming looks.

My watch is the Koa & Rose Gold from the CORA series. For each of the different woods used, JORD has created an amazing guide describing the wood and level of sustainability! You can see more here.

Koa is a finely ground golden wood, with rose tones. It is native to Hawaii and is their second most common tree, it is a flowering tree and is a part of the pea family! Koa means brave, bold, fearless and comes from the Hawaiian language.

New Years Eve Outfit and Giveaway

New Years Eve Outfit and Giveaway

I can not believe it is almost 2015! From the end of November tiil the start of the new year is when everyone is rocking the sequins. It is the time of year when you can go all out, and why not start the new year with a bang!
Today I have found a few of my favorite looks for this new year, and they are all centered around a gorgeous gold Rolex men’s watch. I was recently introduced to a very neat company called Invaluable, a site where you can actually bid of an array of luxury items from pretty much all of the designers out there, including this gorgeous mens watch. And though this watch may be a mans watch, any confident lady could totally rock it!

Check out the end of this post for a New Year Giveaway!

One can never go wrong with an all black dress on New Years, the sequins are festive and the low neck line adds a lot of glam to the outfit. This would be a great outfit if you are going to a nice dinner with your significant other or maybe even a nice office party. Paired with some high black heels and the gold Rolex watch would finish off the look. (Shop here)

Yes everyone knows that black and gold are the go to colors for this time of year. But adding a pop of color is fun and will stand out against everyone else at the party! A great look for a night with friends or family. This would also look great with a big gold watch and some high gold heels.

If you are not into the super sparkley holiday outfits than this might be the one for you. You do not have to be sparkling to get all the attention in the room. This all white outfit is sure to be an eye catcher against all the black dresses this year, and this look can be used for any plans you have that night. Gold accessories are a must for this! (Shop here)

This is probably my favorite outfit of the bunch! The sheer black top adds a bit of sexiness to the outfit, but the long sleeves and pockets tone it down just the right amount. Pair this with the gold watch and some heels and you are ready for the night.
