Bucket list #17 - A new watch

Without realising I have actually completed the first item on my '30 things before 30' bucket list!

Number 17 was to get a watch and this was completed on 29th November. It took me months and months to find one I really liked because I was fussy and didn't want it to be too large or small on the wrist. Also I have not had one for years, so was not used to wearing one and didn't want to invest in something I would not wear everyday.

It all began when I was on Instagram one day and saw a friend post a picture of her new watch. I really liked the design, so looked up the brand and found somewhere I could go and have a look to see it in person - Perfect!

A day or two later I was scrolling through Instagram again and came across a company called Kapten & Son, I instantly fell in love with the brand because of the anchor! I went over to their website and scrolled through their designs, which were very similar to the other watch I had found. Then before I knew it I found the one, it was a rose gold case with a grey vintage strap.

The next decision was to decide on the size of clock face! They have two choices, 40mm Campus and 36mm Campina. I never thought I would worry so much about it because normally there is only one option, but in the end I went for the smaller of the two sizes. The watch was at the top of my budget but it seemed worth it, especially as there was an offer on to get a free scrap with any order. I placed my order and only had to wait about a week for the beauty!

When I opened the parcel, I was blown away with the wonderful packaging. There was a scroll to Welcome me, straw, the extra strap and the main event...the watch!

I am over the moon with it all and now wear it with pride every day!

2017 Goals

Happy New Year everyone! 

As it is already the second day of 2017, I thought I better start to think about what I want to get out of this year. I am determined to make something of this blog and myself in the next 12 months!

2017 is starting off with another huge change in my life, but a happier one to last year. My husband is starting a new job, which is going to have him away from home up to 12 weeks at a time. This is going to be a massive adjustment for me, and of course him, because I am so used to having him around and someone in the house. Also I will miss him!
