Spring has arrived in China! The flowers have started to bloom, and the park has cherry blossoms hanging on the trees that have just begun to open up. I know it’s only going to keep getting prettier! The sun has also been out more than usual, which is such a nice change up from the smoggy winter.

Today Trenton and I studied language in the morning, then went out to lunch with our friends. We went to a dish style place that we frequent multiple times a month, and we got spicy cauliflower, eggplant, fried potato, and all different types of meat for the table to share. It was so good! We then had a training at our house, and after which the guys played video games while the gals chatted and drank coffee. It was a fabulous day, and a nice break from the normal routine of studying 24/7 haha! Since I finally had a minute, we went outside and snapped some photos!

I am absolutely in LOVE with this JORD watch! It is walnut wood and vintage rose gold, and it is perfect for my spring wardrobe. I must admit, I am a total watch girl. When I was in middle school, my brother had this girlfriend, and he bought her a Fossil watch for Christmas. However, they ended up breaking up days before Christmas so he gave it to me instead! So, thoughtful, right? Ha! I ended up wearing it for years, and I became the girl that literally everyone asked, “What time is it?” I still have that watch, and since then I’ve added a few watches to my collection.

There are a few items I am always very selective with: purses, watches, and earrings. Whenever I purchase one of these three items, I want them to be timeless, high quality, and last long time. And this watch is no exception. This JORD time piece is the perfect addition to my watch collection, and you’ll see me wearing it for years to come. It’s made out of wood, which I think is so unique and beautiful. I love it so much that I’ve teamed up JORD to give away $100 to go toward any watch of your choice!! (Plus free sizing and free shipping!)

  1. Literally have not worn a watch in forever! I usually use my phone to tell the time oops but I agree that a watch is a timeless piece and if I had a nice watch, I would probably wear it. xx

      1. I’m originally from Miami Beach but living in Fort Lauderdale now – we’re moving to Charleston, SC in June though! There was a wild cold snap that hit the Northeast and it made it all the way south to us. Things are finally back in the 70s though.
