Sunshine Time in France & JORD Giveaway

Skiing Val Thorens France Beautiful & Sunny Day

Click here to enter the JORD watch giveaway :)

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 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 :)
