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.

The Style Icon: Jada Pinkett Smith

Age is nothing but a number they say, but some people never seem age, regardless of how old they are. Jade Pinkett Smith is one of those people. This 44-year-old Style Icon has not aged a bit. She still looks as young as she looked in the 80s. I love Jada’s fashion sense, she has an incredible style. She has a very petite frame, at 5ft,Β  but she knows how to dress it all up, and make it look very pretty. I love everything about this Style Icon, can you tell?

I have followed and admired Jade Pinkett Smith for as long as I can remember. I remember watching A Different World back in the day, and wanting to be like her. Not to forget her amazing performance in the movie Set It Off. There is something so edgy and captivating about her. I find her intriguing. She is one woman I would love to meet in real life.

Jada slays every time she steps out. She knows what looks on her, and she delivers. I love the way she puts her own unique spin on classic looks, like the outfit above. She wore mismatching earrings to this event. She has on a small earring on the left ear, and a long earring on the right. It is her own way of ensuring her signature look is on every outfit, and it works.

Apart from her amazing style, Jada Pinkett Smith has one of the most amazing bodies in the whole of Hollywood. Even after having 2 kids, her abs are so firm and well toned, she is so fit.

I have been paying attention to general fitness, and I mentioned I would love to work on my abs in my last sportswear/fitness post, so I went digging into Jada’s fitness routine. She has a strict fitness routine, she is a regular at the gym, and she eats a lot of super foods. I am not surprised she does all these things because her amazing body looks it.

What do you think of Jada Pinkett Smith? Any thoughts?
