Jord Fieldcrest Watch: First Impression

How is everyone doing?! Today, I'm all about watches. Not gonna lie, my watch game is not that strong yet, but I'm trying to get a small yet carefully curated collection going. I remember my mom always scolding me for not wearing one most days-- apparently she equates watch wearing to being conscious of time, which in return indicates a person's level of responsibility and maturity. Haha. Now I don't really know if that's completely true, but I do know that the right watch can add an extra oomph and polish to any outfit. So imagine my glee when JORD, a premiere watch company reached out to me for a collaboration by reviewing one of their watches. Here's my unboxing and initial impressionsof the Jord Fieldcrest watch in Maple -- read on after the jump for more information!

Family Funday at The Detroit Zoo


Nothing else signals the start of "going out" season (spring, of course!) like taking the family out to see some adorable animals! A couple of months ago, the fambam took our tiny little babies to check out the Detroit Zoo, which just opened for the spring season -- I've been wanting to check out the zoo since we got to Michigan as I've heard nothing but good things about it. And also, seeing a giraffe alive and in the flesh was such an exciting prospect for me! We did have a ton of fun and we did get to visit a lot of the sections, but unfortunately it ended up being a really chilly day still and we couldn't stay that long (Michigan weather, what can you do?). And no giraffe sighting for me, for now! Totally planning to swing by sometime this summer though to finally meet that giraffe. You best be looking out, adorable long-necked animal!

Pro-tip: the Detroit Zoo is HUGE so you have to wear comfortable shoes and bring something to quench that thirst. Take it from me, I came unprepared, definitely learned the hard way.
