The Perfect Father’s Day Gift

I’m not sure about you, but I always struggle with what to give my dad or mom for their respective days or birthdays. Coincidentally, my dad’s birthday is around mother’s day and my mum’s birthday is around father’s day. No. They did not each get a gift for each day. Like the child whose birthday was around Christmas, they had to suck it up and just get one. With father’s day approaching, JORD Watches sent me one of their beautiful wood watches and I think it would be the most unique gift for this father’s day and I thought I would share it with you!


The watch they sent me was the Olivia & Acacia from their Dover series and their men’s collection. It is a stunning watch. The detail that has gone into everything from the packaging to the wooden band and the hands of the watch is amazing. I was first impressed by how the package came in. I received it in a branded cardboard box, inside this box was a wooden box which stored the watch, a natural finishing oil, and a cleaning cloth. The box is strong and firm, and it even has a little drawer where you can put the cleaning cloth and oil, or even repurpose the box for something else.

If the detail in the watch is not enough for you, you can turn it into an engraved gift. When buying your selected watch, you can enter any text you would like to have engraved, how big you want it, and the placement of it on the watch. I think that adds a lot more touch and sentiment to a gift and I love that JORD offers this service. You can also engrave the box it comes it for an extra touch of love.

Not sure about you, but my main concern when shopping for anything wrist related is the fear of it not fitting right. I have a tiny, bony wrist and things usually don’t fit right. JORD has a measurements table you can use to know what will fit you best. The box also comes with some additional links and pins if you need to make it bigger, or they can be removed by you (or if you’re not comfortable, you can take it to a jeweler and they can do it for you!)


My dad is not really into watches or anything that goes on the wrists just because he finds them uncomfortable, but as soon as I showed him a picture of the watch, he was interested. My brother wants it, my boyfriend wants it, they’re all in love with this watch.

As part of this campaign, I have partnered with them to help you give dad the perfect gift this year! Every person who enters will be entered to win a $100 gift code to use on the JORD site. There will only be one lucky winner, but everyone else who participates will receive a $25 gift code. It is really simple – you have to fill out this form and that’s it! If you follow @jordwatches on IG that will be counted as an additional entry.

I would love it if one of you is the lovely winner as these are gorgeous watches, and their women’s collection is stunning as well. Really versatile and there’s one for everyone. Leave a comment below with any other father’s day ideas you have!

  • #BECCACosmeticsgiftedme The beautiful highlighter in #ChampagnePop. I already had it in Opal, but I’d heard so much about this shade. If you’ve yet to try @beccacosmetics highlighters, these are some of the most beautiful out there. The finish is stunning.
Have you tried #BECCAcosmetics highlighters? #BECCAGlow #OctolyFamily
Los iluminadores de @beccacosmetics son de los más lindos que he usado. El acabado en la piel aunque muy potente se ve muy natural. El tono Champagne Pop es un poco champaña, sin verse muy dorado.
  • #invisibobblegiftedme Ending the day with a little bit of makeup, a little bit of skincare, and my favorite hair the #Sprunchie. I love the original @invisibobble hair ties but I couldn’t resist wanting to try their sprunchie. Basically a scrunchie with an invisibobble inside. The pink is beautiful and I haven’t had any trouble with it stretching out or anything. Love it! They are available at @sephora so make sure to take advantage of the #sephorasale this weekend!
Spot any of your favorites? What do you use to keep your hair up?
Terminando el día con un poco de #maquillaje y de #cuidadodelapiel. Espero estén teniendo una linda noche!

  • #quipgiftedme Never thought I’d be reviewing a toothbrush on my feed but dental hygiene is also beauty okay?! This is @getquip, the prettiest #toothbrush I have ever used. For the last few months,
I haven’t been satisfied with my dental hygiene and decided to give #getquip a go as I had read so many good reviews. I received the electric brush and the toothpaste and have been using it for over two weeks now. Is it weird that I now look forward to brushing my teeth? I do. After I use it, my teeth feel SO clean and I can definitely notice a difference. I will continue using it and will@keep y’all updated.
You can use my promo code: getquip.com/treatyourteeth: Free $10 Refill #OctolyFamily
Nunca pensé que estaría escribiendo una reseña de un cepillos de dientes pero... hoy es el dia! La limpieza dental también es belleza. Llevo usando @getquip ya más de dos semanas y la verdad que SI noto una diferencia en la limpieza de mis dientes. Se sienten super limpios después de cepillarlos.

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼
Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.
