My history of watches:
1988 – My grandpa gave me my first watch when I was 8 years old. He had returned from a business trip in the U.S, and had brought with him a Guess watch, with a gold face and a red leather band. I loved it, and I wore it until the strap ripped.
2001 – My Mum gave me a watch when I turned 21, as is the tradition in my family. It was a brushed stainless steel, cuff-style watch, with an inlaid face. I still have it, but it’s so not my style.
I’m ready for a new watch. A watch that goes with everything, matches all eclectic jewellery collection, and doesn’t make me break out in itchy bumps. (I’m allergic to nickel.)
P.S Mette’s blog is one of my favourite daily reads, so you should definitely take a look. Right now.
