Tick Tock

Hello you lovely lot! Hope you've all had a brilliant bank holiday weekend, hopefully with plenty of sunshine in lieu of this characteristically British weather we've been enduring lately. So, today I thought I'd share with you all a little something I treated myself to recently, as up until now I've actually been lacking in one! My dear readers, I invested in a watch. I can just about hear the sighs of broken excitement, as buying a watch isn't pretty interesting, right? Well, guys and gals that's were you're quite mistaken! I've never been fond of having my wrist play prisoner to a constant constricting timepiece, I could just never fathom it as fashionable, that was until the watch of my dreams walked into my life!
*SWOON*


Mouth watering yet? This delicious design is part of Swatch's 'Pastry Chef' S/S collection where their candy, cupcake and confectionary themed pieces are good enough to eat! However, it was the Swatch 'Caramellissa' that had me drooling over the keyboard (TMI?), with it's ooey gooey pastels and nostalgic resemblance of children's candy necklaces, how could I resist?


As I mentioned previously, for me, probably one of the primary annoyances that comes with wearing a watch is the commitment - I could just never see myself routinely wrap one around my wrist for the duration of the day. However, the beauty about the 'Caramellissa' is that it looks and feels more like a bracelet, just another quirky accessory I've added to my collection of all things cute!


Do you wear a watch?



 

  1. This is so cute, it's like the 90s sweetie ones you used to get. It's gorgeous - I NEED IT :)

  6. I try to wear one but in the end I will crack it at some point. At the moment I am wearing a cat face one that the cashier accidentally forgot to scan and I got for free :D

    1. Jemma, I had to. It was one of those 'get it or I'll die' situations! I don't own a watch so I like to justify it that way as well ;)

    1. Yes, you understand! It honestly feels more like a quirky bracelet I'm wearing rather than a constricting watch, plus it brightens up even the dullest of outfits :)
