Life is fast paced and at times relentless, time is one of those luxuries that flashes before our eyes. One moment we have all the time in the world, and in the next instance we are left wondering where those hours, days and weeks have gone. Since Leo came along I have found it a lot harder to keep track of time, sometimes it feels like there are not enough hours in the day. Sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday that Leo arrived into our lives, but the reality is that the world has kept on turning, and the hands of time have kept moving us along.

I have never really been one to wear a watch, and more often than not rely on my phone to provide me with the time at any one moment. It is something that works for me, well.. Until my phone runs out of battery and I have to rely on there being a clock in the vicinity. Even my car has let me down on the time front, and I now need to remember how to re-program it to get at least a rough estimate of the real time of day...I often think that life would be that little bit easier if I did succumb to the idea of having my own personal watch. A means to keeping a watchful eye on the time when all other means of modern technology let me down. 

I think part of the reason I have never really had my own watch is because I can never decide on a style. There are so many different designs, that I find it really hard to find a unique design that I would want to wear each and everyday. For me I would prefer a watch that was pretty and looked more like a bracelet than your everyday watch. I like pretty pieces of jewelry so I would definitely want something beautiful and sparkly. 

Although having such an active lifestyle these days, and by active I do mean chasing a 2 year old around. I also mean the added hazards of wearing anything that I would rather not got splatted with food, or just generally being introduced to my toddler. In the wake of Leo's arrival I very quickly found all of my jewelry had retired to my jewelry box, and it stayed there collecting dust until very recently. It is only now that I am daring to wear my favourite pieces again... 

In celebration of my beautiful trinkets coming out of storage, I have actually been having a browse over at The Watch Hut, and come across a watch that I really like. It's the DKNY Stone Set Ladies Watch and is absolutely beautiful. I am still having a browse but so far this happens to be my personal favourite... And if I do decide to end the days of time just running away with me.. Then this watch is the number one contender for the job at hand.
