My Addiction to Watches

If you know me well enough, you would know I am a massive watch lover and a recovering watch addict. I love my watches a lot and I am forever growing my collection. I like my watches fancy and luxurious, so they tend to be pricey.

I think a stylish outfit needs a classic watch to finish off the look beautifully. There is nothing like rocking an amazing beautiful watch with an even more amazing outfit. I would personally be lost without a stunning watch on my wrist!



One brand I am yet to shop as far watches are concerned is the Cartier brand. I have always loved and wanted a Cartier watch for as long as I can remember. I have admired the various designs from a distance for donkey years, and lusted after them. I find Cartier watches so classic and timeless. A Cartier watch is like royalty in my eyes.

I recently came across an article written by Emily Seares, on The Watch Gallery site, which was all about the Cartier watch and how the brand has managed to retain its cool factor and classic status. The article really got me thinking about why the Cartier brand is so special, and this quote right here answers this question beautifully –

Cartier is more than just a timepiece; it is a piece of jewellery, offering the perfect balance of elegance and fashion. The Dior silhouette or the Chanel black dress, a Cartier watch is a style statement so intrinsic to today’s notion of timeless classic that it should be central to every women’s wardrobe.

I agree completely with this quote. A Cartier watch is an elegant fashion accessory, every woman should have. It is a watch for every body and every occasion. It is definitely one of those watches you should spend that little bit extra on. It is worth splurging on if you can afford it, because it is a timeless piece that would probably last you a lifetime.

The look of a Cartier watch is so distinctive, it is impossible to miss. The Roman Numerals are a signature design feature along with a blue cabochon on the crown, and the vibrant, strong red of the Cartier packaging wraps it up perfectly.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you a watch lover like myself? Are you a fan of the Cartier brand?Please sound off in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day.






Felicity Jones Covers Harper’s Bazaar UK November 2016

Felicity Jones is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar November 2016 issue and I like it. I am a huge fan of Harper’s Bazaar magazine covers. I think they are very artistic and creative, and the covers always stand out from the rest. And this cover right here is no exception. I love the background and Felicity Jones’ Fendi outfit; she looks stunning.

I am not a fan of Felicity, I know little or nothing about her to be honest. So apart from the lovely cover, I have no interest in buying this issue. But I would read it if I come across it. If you are thinking of grabbing this issue, here are some quotes from her interview ith Harper’s Bazaar –

On social media:

She doesn’t use social media – “I would feel like I was working all the time”; politely deflects questions about her private life; and can still travel around London alone without getting pestered.”I don’t court that kind of attention,” she says. 

On strong female roles:

“You read things like: ‘He grabs her by the arm and pulls her along’,” she says wryly. “But there’s an appetite for both men and women to be interesting, complicated characters. We don’t want to see stereotypes any more on screen. I become really passionate when I’m playing a part, and I do fight for that role and for the intricacy of that person. Film is very powerful so I do feel that there is a certain amount of responsibility to portray reality. I have had really strong female role models in my life.” 



The special-edition subscribers’ cover features Jones wearing pieces from Burberry’s new collection, which takes inspiration from Virginia Woolf’s novel ‘Orlando’, photographed by David Slijper.

I love this Burberry outfit.

Both covers look great but I prefer the first cover? Which do you prefer?







Designer Watches Wishlist

I am a watch lover. I think watches are great investment accessories, and I do tend to invest quite a bit in them, every now and again. Putting on a stylish watche is one of the easiest ways to take your outfit to the next level. Accessories do have the power to break or make any outfit, so I pay a lot of attention to mine. However, I haven’t bought a new watch in a while and I am currently lusting after quite few now. Come lust with me –


Must de Cartier Stainless Steel Ladies 1330



The jeweller of kings and the king of jewellers; Cartier, is on my designer watch wish list and why shouldn’t it be. I find the Cartier watches so sleek and sophisticated, and I love every piece I see. However, most of them are way above my budget, so I think I will be sticking to the preowned cartier watches, they are still pricey but a lot more affordable than the brand new pieces.

I am loving this Must de Cartier watch, I love the 18K yellow gold bracelet. It will be a great piece to wear this on very special occasions. I am very happy to know this Cartier watch and all the others on the Xupes website – home of luxury preowned watches, handbags, fine art, antiques and jewellery. I will be watching this wrist candy very closely.


Cartier Pasha Chronograph Stainless Steel/18k Rose Gold Ladies 3129


This is another Cartier watch I am loving at the moment. I adore the white rubber strap, stainless steel/18k rose gold case and big dial. It will look amazing worn with a casual outfit. I can picture it looking lovely with a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt. Do you agree?

TAG Heuer Carrera Cara Delevingne Titanium Ladies Watch

Tag Watch


This watch designed in collaboration with the supermodel; Cara Delevingne, is a beauty to behold I love the black strap and gold dial. It will look amazing worn with most pieces in my wardrobe. I would love to own this beauty.


Rolex Datejust Steel and 18ct Gold Automatic Ladies Watch

Rolex Watch

I am seriously lusting after this 18ct gold Rolex with fluted bezel. I think it is so beautiful and elegant. If I won a lottery, I will definitely be spoiling myself with this piece, I love it so much.
