Tick, tock, tick tock... Valentine's Day is coming up just around the block! Ok, that was a little cheesy, but anything for the rhyme... Am I right? While I believe every day is a good day to show love to the ones you care for, Vday is the perfect day to shower those people with some extra special LOVE! Sweets and flowers are fantastic and I'll have some great recommendations for those coming up shortly, but if you want to treat your favorite person to something extra special this year... May I suggest a classically stylish ARVO watch?
ARVO creates timepieces for both men and women, but this blog's for the boys... Don't worry girls, cupid has something amazing for you coming up in the next post! I discovered ARVO last year via instagram while searching for the perfect accessories for an editorial photo shoot at the Atlanta History Center's magnificent Swan House Mansion.
Initially I was attracted to their brand's classic and simplistic style, but once I did a little more research I fell in love with their purpose: be good, do good. Founded in Salt Lake City, Utah, co-founders Jake and Ashley Nackos seek to "spread positive action" within their community and beyond. Not only do they create a stunning, quality product, but they also use their platform as business owners and creators to fund charitable projects around the world. A portion of each purchase goes towards funding these projects and to date have helped to "clothe the homeless, raise money for education in India, promote community involvement with Utah's refugee program, help fund missions to end child extortion and slavery, teach leadership and team working skills to our future leaders, and fight in the battle against cancer." This alone is reason enough for anyone to purchase and wear an ARVO watch with pride, but did I mention they are also gorgeous???
So what are you waiting for? Show the special man in your life just how much you love him this Valentine's Day with a stylish timepiece and spread that love into the world by purchasing from a socially conscious and charitable brand. And, if that isn't enough to get you buying, what if I told you that you could also treat yourself in the process? Click here for their Valentine's Day BOGO special, choose one for that special someone and then choose one just for you! May I recommend the Matte Gray Awristocrat with a Gray Felt band? It's my current favorite <3 Happy Valentine's day y'all, take some time this week to spread the love!
