Jord Watch Review

When JORD watches approached me to do an unbiased review of one of their watches I was honestly delighted at the opportunity. You may have seen my JORD Wood Watch on my Instagram lately if you follow me. JORD has given me the opportunity to give away a great discount on their watches and a giveaway for the holidays. Keep Reading to get the details on this watch and what I honestly think...

 Again, if you have been following me for a while you will likely see my love for watches. I love them all and I usually have a watch on at all times. Casual or glammed up I have a watch on. One of my favorite parts of the watch is the size of the face. JORD is a Swedish word meaning earth, soil or land, so highlighting natural elements is a defined priority of the brand. Some of the most sustainable-harvested woods used to create the watches include bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, and teak. I decided to go with a darker larger watch this time around and I wanted something different than what I've seen floating around lately. These watches are ever so popular in my little blogging world. I typically see the lighter wood watches when scrolling through my feed. A little bonus: the glass is scratch-proof! This is huge for me because it's not uncommon for me for throw my watch in my purse while traveling or on the go.

Styled with the Frankie watch 

Jord watches come in a series of wood colors and styles, with several options to choose from. The prices are anywhere from $139 and up. The cost of my Frankie wood watch: $189

 This watch isn't one you can go swimming with or even wash your hands with. I've read on other reviews that the wood will expand when wet so it's safe to say keep the watch dry at all times. I'm ok with that one. I usually only get my Michael Kors silver/gold watch wet or what have you. It is made of wood so you will need to keep this watch out of the sun (no tanning). You can keep your watch clean with the cleaner they send and with the cloth that is included.

 My honest review of JORD wood watches:
 Each watch comes with an authenticity card, and a 12-month JORD warranty, which was unexpected and something that many don't come with. I’m happy with my watch selection of the dark stained wood, as opposed to the beautiful green or natural light color that many styles are offered in. It’s very richly colored, but still looks like a luxury watch for $189, this is a great investment if you’re in the market for a watch either for yourself or as a gift. I am now considering getting a few more as gifts for Christmas after looking at the guys selection.

Hackamore- The Zero Calorie Energy Boost

Hackamore Premium Energy 
If you're like me, the hustle, bustle, and business of the work week make you feel like you're just trying to keep up. Between work, travel, family time, friends, dogs, blogging, and everything else we do during the week I'm exhausted. I'm always trying to catch up on sleep which I hate. I've always believed you can sleep when you’re dead but I can’t function most of the time with little sleep and little energy. I hate wasting away my weekend by sleeping through it.

Hackamore smooth packaging 

 Implement Hackamore Energy, a premium, non-alcoholic energy beverage with no sweeteners, sugar or calories. While it can be enjoyed solo in small shots or sipped on the rocks for a caffeine boost, it's even better enjoyed in a mixed drink.

So I typically have zero energy and rely solely on coffee to keep me going most days. I'm excited to implement this new product and see how I adjust with less coffee in my life. I will likely have a few adult beverages here and there too with this new product. With all that said I've partnered with Hackamore Energy to share a tasty, refreshing drink version that can easily be transformed into a cocktail with a single shot of vodka:

What is Hackamore?
 Hackamore is a premium natural caffeine drink in its purest form. A shot of ( 2 fluid oz) is equivalent to 80mg of caffeine or a cup of coffee. All of the caffeine comes from coffee beans. They describe their drink as a “shot of clear coffee”.

Is it healthy?
 This product has zero calories and zero sugars but it also has no artificial sweeteners. I would say it’s very healthy off that alone and is way better than the sugary coffee I have twice a day every day.

How does it taste?
 No taste in my opinion but maybe somewhat similar to water with lime.

How do you drink it?
 However you like. You can take a shot or mix it into a drink. They actually include a sheet with drink recipes to try. There are some recipes with alcohol and some without. My signature drink while drinking vodka or alcoholic beverages is a "Dirty Shirley".


-1 oz vodka

-5 - 6 oz Sprite® soda

-1 dash grenadine syrup

Pour the vodka over ice cubes in a highball glass. Fill the glass the rest of the way with Sprite. Add grenadine, garnish with a cherry/lime and serve.

I did find several recipes that looked interesting but this one below caught my eye and I will be trying this one next. 

"The Heart Room”

 - 1.5 oz of Hackamore

 - lemonade

- 4 pieces of watermelon

 -4 leaves of basil

-Add vodka or another liquor if you want an alcoholic beverage....

My thoughts...

I'm excited to implement this into my day and have some added healthy caffeine to help me with my busy schedule. Anything and everything helps seriously and if it's healthy even better.
