Summer’s right around the corner which means swimsuits, beach bods, wavy hair, and pops of color are going to be EVERYWHERE! In a (digital) sea of striped bikinis, crop tops with shorts, and #bodygoals make yourself stand out from the crowd with a bright white smile! What’s one of the first things you notice when you meet someone or look at a photo? Their features! Eyes, hair, face, SMILE. So what better way to catch someone’s attention than with your gorgeous smile. Imagine all the compliments you’ll receive and the confidence boost you’ll gain. Who WOULDN’T want that?! Right??
What if I told you that you could get shampoo and conditioner made JUST FOR YOU? I’m talking fully custom – you choose the specific concerns it targets and takes care of, AND the scent! Haircare that’s made specifically by you, for you. If you’re like most other women, you want your hair to look it’s best and smell gooood. Amiright? Well what better way to do that than with a custom made-for-you formula?? A full size set of shampoo and conditioner formulated for you by an expert chemist. Sounds awesome, doesn’t it?! I thought so. So without further ado…
Let me introduce you to Formulate Co.
Formulate Co. is a cruelty free, environmentally friendly haircare company that creates a custom shampoo and conditioner formula based on your hair type and the concerns you wish to target and fix. The materials used for the bottles are environmentally friendly and the formulas are naturally derived. Their products are also paraben and sulfate free. Formulate is all for recycling and reducing waste, so if you happen to receive a re-formulation, your previous one can be used as a cleaner (I have a few sets :P)!
Formulate is the first custom haircare system that allows you to select the top 5 “benefits” you need for your hair. You can choose from benefits such as volume, color care, dandruff control, split end mending, moisture, and so many more. The process is super easy. You’ll fill out a hair profile with the details of your hair, select your main concerns, and then choose from a selection of scents (shown below).
Formulate is driven by individuality, positivity, and improvement. They want to help you end the “guess and test” way of buying and trying hair products. Their goal is to create a product that’s perfect for you so you don’t have to keep guessing. They currently only have shampoo and conditioner, but additional products are in the works.
My personal hair profile
I’m sure we can all agree…
That fall is an all-around amazing time of year. The vibrant colors of the leaves, the smell of cinnamon and pumpkin, and the perfect weather for busting out those adorable sweaters and boots you’ve been waiting all summer to show off.
But how do you stand out in an ocean of oversized sweaters, knee high boots, and suede skirts? With a statement piece that will catch their attention, duh! So enter JORD – a company that makes GORGEOUS watches from 13 varieties of unique, natural woods.
Whoa, A Wood Watch?!
Yep! That’s correct. All JORD watches are made from naturally sourced woods from around the world, and a sapphire glass that is “second only to diamond as the hardest and most scratch resistant [material] on earth (1).” Needless to say, these are quality pieces and you truly get what you pay for! Not to mention how stunning and intricate the wood colors and patterns are. And these watches aren’t just for the ladies. They have just as many cool choices for men too! You can shop them by style, social media posts, and materials. So are you curious what they all look like?! I knew you would be! You can view all of the women’s styles here and the men’s styles here.
Oh, you know… just sharing the coolest watch I’ve ever owned! This gorgeous piece from @jordwatches is made from real wood and custom sized to fit your wrist. There are a variety of colors and styles available with unique wood patterns that you won’t find in other watches. The one I’m wearing is the Frankie Purpleheart and Plum (see it here), and my other favorite is the Fieldcrest Maple. (You can check out all styles here). No matter which style is your favorite, they’re all perfect statement pieces to show off and get people talking all season long.
So are you convinced yet?
If not, let me explain a few other reason why you will absolutely love your JORD watch. Not only will it be the star accessory of your entire look, but it will be custom fit for you, it’s a top quality stunning piece that will last years, and it comes in a marvelous solid wood keepsake box (keep reading to see it)! Below I explain all of the special options that make these watches so unique and desirable, and why you’ll be so thrilled that you decided to purchase one. I promise you will NOT be disappointed!
Choosing Your Watch
There are a variety of unique, fashionable designs to choose from for both men and women. There are classic solid wood watches, watches with a square face, watches with sophisticated metal accents, and there’s even one with a “zebra” design. They have options with large watch faces, or small; light colored wood or dark woods. What’s really neat is that no two watches will look exactly the same because of the wood grain and natural patterns in the wood. So you’ll have a custom watch, and nobody else’s will look exactly like yours!! Once you’ve selected your favorite design, the REAL customization begins.
My watch is the Frankie Purpleheart & Plum
Custom Ordering Options
There are a few special options and perks when ordering your watch. You have the option to get an engraving in your watch to make it extra special, and it will be custom fit to your wrist measurement (so no sliding around)!
If you want to make your watch truly memorable, you can choose to have an engraving on the back of the watch, or on the presentation box. Engravings are the perfect option for birthdays, anniversaries, or simply for a cherished memory. Choose to have a name and date, a quote, or a personalized message engraved – it’s fully customizeable and up to you! You have the option of block text or script writing for both a classic or elegant look. There are some beautiful examples of engravings on the JORD engraving page.
I think my favorite thing about JORD is that they make your watch custom to fit your wrist. I have tiny wrists, so I’m always having to put watches on the tightest setting with a long band piece sticking out. Not with JORD! They have a sizing ruler for you to print out and measure your wrist to make sure you get the best fit for your wrists. When you print the sizing ruler, DO NOT “fit to page” because that will mess up the sizing on the ruler and your watch won’t fit! When mine printed, part of it was cut off, so I measured from the other end and simply counted the number of marks in my measurement (mine was 15 and I have small wrists). Your size, this number from your measurement, will be needed when ordering your watch – it is very important! Also, think about what you’re going to be wearing your watch with when you measure. If you’re going to wear it straight on your wrist, measure normal. If you plan to wear it over a sweater sleeve, take your measurement over a sleeve to make sure it will fit.
When I opened up my watch for the first time I was thoroughly impressed. In this short unboxing video I show you exactly what you can expect when your watch comes in the mail, and why you will not be disappointed! (Excuse the quality and the pause in the middle)
Every watch comes in a supreme quality durable wooden presentation box complete with a magnetic lid and pull out drawer to keep the small pieces in so they don’t get lost.
It also includes a towlette, microfiber cloth, wood polish, extra links, and a pillow for quality safe-keeping. You have everything you could possibly need to care for your watch and keep it in top condition. Not to mention the fancy new box you’ll have to display on your dresser now! *wink wink*
These watches are so versatile that you can wear them with pretty much anything. Since I have the purpleheart wood watch, I decided to pair mine with rich fall hues like burgundy, emerald, and hints of blue. All of the watches come in natural colors and easily pair with other neutrals, or complement vibrant pops of color.
If you need some color inspiration, here are some fall colors that go well together (you can mix and match, choose a few): burgundy, navy blue, cream, olive green, brown, mustard yellow, grey, white, emerald green, denim blue
These are some of my favorite color combinations with outfit examples:
- Burgundy, navy blue, and brown – burgundy tee with navy blue pants/jeans and brown booties
- Olive green, denim blue, and cream – olive green tank top with a cream cardigan and denim blue jeans
- Mustard yellow, navy blue, and burgundy – Mustard yellow top with dark blue jeans and burgundy boots/booties

Are you a watch person? What is your favorite JORD watch? If you’re looking for a pop of color, I recommend my Frankie Purpleheart & Plum. If a neutral color is more your style, my favorite is the Fieldcrest maple, which also has a smaller face for smaller wrists. If you need additional ideas for styling your watch, there are styled photos at the bottom of each watch style for further inspiration.
