Around the World from Home: 2019 Texas Cultural Events & Festivals

As far back as I can remember one of my favorite outdoor things to do was/is attend festivals. Growing up I looked forward to the Houston International Festival every year. The music, the food, and the cultural exposure...there’s usually always something fun to do and cool to see at festivals. Here’s a list of some cool festivals taking place in the Houston, Texas area or within driving distance of the Houston, Texas area this year. Some of these events are free and tickets to some of the events that aren’t free can be purchased at a discount on Groupon so be sure to do a little research before you plan your next adventure. #liveItUp

JORD Watches

This is a sponsored post.

Butterflies, I like to have unique accessories I can wear daily that are distinctive but simple; St. Louis based watch brand Jord (pronounced Yode) which I recently discovered offers an array of watches to match everyone’s personal style and they are constantly developing new designs. These watches are a highly-developed mix of natural, and recycled materials, combined with quality movements and parts.

I was sent a wooden wrist watch from JORD’s Cassia series, in ebony and sable. This particular watch features their signature full Roman numeral concave dial encased in a domed sapphire glass with a metal and wood link interlaced band that conforms seamlessly into the rounded case. Of all the amazing timepieces JORD has, the Cassia and Frankie (in ebony) are my favorite. The design of both of these pieces perfectly complement my minimalist style and the only major difference between the two are the bands.
