Sunshine Time in France & JORD Giveaway

Skiing Val Thorens France Beautiful & Sunny Day

Woosh, the last few weeks just flew by! I can’t believe it’s already three weeks ago that I went skiing in France for a long weekend! It was actually the first time I went to France instead of to Austria or Switzerland for skiing! Turned out that the neighbours of good friends of ours have a chalet in Les Menuires (Trois Vallees), so we thought it’d be fun to fly over for a long weekend :) And it was so much fun! The chalet was really beautiful (you need to look here for some options of chalets that are available to hire for your vacation, as there is nothing quite as magical when it comes to holiday accommodation) and the weather was amazing! Down in the valley in the sun you could just wear a t-shirt – that kind of weather!

We flew in to Geneva on a Wednesday night and then drove to the chalet in Les Menuires where we arrived super late at night. I think it was around 3 am that we finally hit the bed! The next morning we were woken up by birds and sunshine – how much I missed this (it usually doesn’t happen often in London..)!. And as the weather was so amazing and it was already getting a bit late to go up skiing, we decided to spend the day in the sun on the terrace :) We had coffee and got out the sun beds. It was so beautiful and the only thing you heard was the sound of the birds. That’s it. So peaceful :)

JORD Woodwatch Photos - Skiing in France

A few coffees later I realised that the spot was also perfect to shoot some photos of my new watch! I’m excited to team up with JORD, a US label that is known for its luxury handmade and all-natural wooden watches. They have so many pretty watches that it took me forever to choose which one to get! In the end I went for the Koa and Rose Gold watch :)

    I love France! I’ve only experienced it in the summer though. It looks like it’d be amazing to visit in the winter. Although I should probably learn to ski before I book my trip :)

    I have always wanted to visit France. The color combination or the rose gold with that particular wood shade is very nice.

    Drinking coffee and listening to the birds sounds like my kinda thing. It goes to show you don’t have to ski to enjoy the Alps in France! Thanks for the alternative!

    I’ve seen these watches everywhere! I love how classy they are. They can be dressed up or dressed down or dressed for the slopes too, I suppose!

    I haven’t been to France during winter but I would love to go skiing there as well. The Jord watch looks super cute and I didn’t know that they were actually made of wood. Will definitely participate in the giveaway.

    Wow, t-shirt weather in March/April? That sounds incredible. I would love to ski in the French alps – was there a variety of runs there of varying levels or was it all pretty difficult? Beautiful watch too – love the rose gold color.
