Many of you may remember when I had “Wine Week” on the blog around this time last year. That was back when I received my first opportunity ever to earn money as a social media influencer. Wine Week, as could have been predicted, I mean, “What’s not to like about wine?” was a big hit! Since then, I’ve grown as an Influencer, primarily as a result of the lessons that the wine week experience taught me and the success I had with that campaign. Not to mention the delicious wine that I received!

In the meantime since Wine Week, I have been offered other collaborations. Wonderful companies and groups have reached out to me but they just weren’t a good fit. Literally. Case in point, several Bra Companies wanted to work with me, ME! I declined. I know this is TMI (too much information), but I feel I must elaborate, especially after I tell you why. I don’t wear a bra. I wear undies, yes, but they aren’t “bras”.
My mother understood really quickly that bras just weren’t for me!
Maybe someday I will explain in another post more in depth why I don’t wear bras but, long story short — it started when I was very young and the “training bras” that I wore as a pre-teenager caused a mole on my back to get very angry and I had to have it surgically removed only to have other moles become angry at the chafing from the bra straps and they also had to be removed, so much so, that I started wearing tank tops instead and still do to this day. There is more to the story but enough about bras . . . For now.
This past year, as I filtered through the many offers I received to collaborate I wanted to work only with companies whose products and /or services I really use or wear or would like to use or wear, so I reached out to several brands that I already use and like but unfortunately I wasn’t a good fit for them – This influencer stuff works both ways – Still, I bided my time (PUN!), and recently I was approached by a wonderful watch company. I only wear watches occasionally but I do wear a watch, so I was very interested. I was even more interested when I learned some great things about the company but wouldn’t you know it? None of their watch faces have numbers, only sundial lines, and I felt if I wanted to be honest in my collaborations this wouldn’t work for me because I won’t wear a watch without numbers. But the watches are so gorgeous! So, for a nanosecond, I actually thought I might change my habit and wear a watch without numbers. Then I thought better of it.
Before declining collaborating though, I decided to ask if I could use the watch as an important gift for my friend who is a watch collector and absolutely loves wearing watches without numbers. I had already been shopping for a gift for her and a watch would be perfect on so many levels since my best friend of almost 40 years is retiring in a few weeks from 32 years of service, employed with the same city, and more than 35 years in the same industry.
A monumental event like this just cries out for a (rose) Gold Watch! Nordgreen of Copenhagen responded that they thought it was the perfect gift as well! And our collaboration was a go.
So, welcome to Nordgreen Watch Week at Edgehill Herb Farm!
I will take this week to introduce you to Nordgreen, their watch products, their design and business ethos and tell you how you can support both myself, and therefore my mother’s long term care fund — which is the reason why I am earning money as an influencer, and the charity of your choice from Nordgreen’s three offerings in their ‘Giving Back Program’ that they include with every watch purchased through my link. http://bit.ly/2BfOo57 Your exclusive 15% discount code is: EDGEHILLHERBFARM15 This link and code will be good through the holidays, perfect for optimal gift giving and available beyond just this “Watch Week”.
