Mario is a huge watch lover and for the last couple of years I have slowly been getting into watches myself. I used to think that wearing a watch was literally just to tell the time and so why would there ever be a need to own more than 1, let alone a nice one! However, since Mario has opened my eyes up to the watch world, I now realise the error of my ways and I love watches!
When I was 21 my mum took me out to by me a watch as a birthday present. I chose a small silver one with a purple face which was lovely and don’t get me wrong, I wore it every day, but it wasn’t very interesting as I didn’t really know what I was looking for!
By the time I was turning 30 I had my eye on a rose gold Micheal Kors and Mario bought me my dream watch for my birthday! I was so excited and I still wear it a lot! It’s rose gold with a big oversized clock face and goes with pretty much every outfit I own. It actually now has a scratch on the clock face as I hit it against a door one day (I can’t be trusted with anything!). But I still wear it!
As my day to day watch I wear a Fitbit Charge 3 as it tracks everything I need it to on a daily basis. It too is rose gold with a navy-blue strap. It’s really pretty to say it’s a fitness tracker and it also goes with most outfits, however I stick to my Michael kors for nights out!
When our local jewellery shop was having a closing down sale, my sister said they had her favourite watch brand on sale (Olivia Burton) so we nipped in to get her one as a gift. While we were in there, I fell in love with a plain rose gold (yes nothing else!) oversized clock face watch with a navy-blue strap. It is so pretty, and I wear it for nights out and special occasions. I am so pleased with it!
Olivia Burton watches are famous for being pretty and vintage and are renowned for their floral and bee designs, making them instantly recognisable. There is literally a watch for everyone, and every occasion and I already have my eye on my next one! I have definitely found my love for watches!
So, what do you look for in a watch?
