The warm and sunny days are here! And with that so is my work’s #summerfriday schedule. I used my first Friday to visit the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, an urban tropical oasis located next to the Brooklyn museum, in the Prospect Park area of Brooklyn. 52 acres of lush greenery land with 12,000 plant species make up this wanderlust seeker’s paradise. As soon as you get pass the main entrance you’ll feel as you have been transported to a distant land where it always feel serene and at times uninhabited. This makes it a perfect destination to disconnect from the fast-paced and chaotic life New York City is so well-known for.
One of BBG’s most popular destination since it’s opening in 1928, and now one of my favorites is The Cranford Rose Garden. An out of this world enchanted garden reminiscent of a fairy tale or Shakespeare story. During my visit, the roses were in full bloom! Getting to see these beauties in person made up for the disappointment I felt after missing the Cherry Blossom Festival, which took place during the previous weekend.
The Tropical Pavilion is the largest out of all the pavilions within the BBG’s conservatory multiplex. The 6,000 square feet glass house is made up of vibrant fresh greenery, waterfalls and streams inspired by some of the top tropical regions in the world.
For this adventure, I complemented my safari inspired look with my new Jord Watch from the Fieldcrest series. Hand-finished natural blond maple wood makes up this exquisite versatile timepiece. The minimal and natural piece has quickly become an everyday- wear staple that has provided me with the easiness to wear it everywhere no matter the occasion or outfit. I love its clean and exceptional craftsmanship.
I value the attention to detail given to the creation and presentation of the watch, including the packaging. This would make a flawless gift idea for someone special in your life. Father’s day is approaching and Graduation season it’s still in full swing (Hint Hint).
