Out of control

As a watch addict, I really enjoy looking at photos of watches (I know, I know, I'm completely out of my mind) Here are some of my favorite photos that I've spotted and collected this week.

Rose Gold


The one thing I don't have in my watches is rose gold. I never really thought much about it. I suppose its because it's not the kind of metal you see in stores all the time, so getting a watch in that tone never really crossed my mind. Now I am certain that I need to add a rose gold watch to my collection because they are beautiful

I found a really cool list of watches at this site. They are all really pretty and it's given me a starting point for what styles I like the most. I seem to like the Anne Klein ones. Maybe I'll get one of those. They're not very expensive either, which is my favorite. I'm the cheapest collector you'll ever find.

I'm really drawn to the rose gold color at the moment because it's so uncommon. Yes it's trendy, but I also feel like you still don't see it very often. If I get a watch in this color, it's going to be spending more time on my wrist than in my box. I do wonder if I should hold off until spring however. It seems like more of a springy tone, but I think I might be able to pull it off in the winter if I put it together with dark colors. Hmmm. Tough decisions, y'all!

Why I love watches.


It all started as a kid. I can't even remember why I became so fascinated with watches. I just loved the way they looked and felt. I loved wearing them and having different watches to go with the different things that I wore. I specifically remember my favorite watch as a kid. It was a watch I received from my mom for christmas. It had all these little silver links that could be connected and taken apart. All the little links had different designs and there were several watch faces. I wish I still had it, or even a picture of it. It's starting to fade from my memory.

Now as an adult, I still love watches. I'm not much of a watch snob though. You won't find my collecting tons of luxury watches. I'm more of a visual person. If I find a watch in a cool color or a unique style. I have to have it. My collecting of watches has gotten so out of control that I have 4 watch boxes filled with watches. I like to think it's kind of acceptable just because I've been gathering them for so long. 10 years + 4 watch boxes is not so bad right? Every now and then I give away some of my watches to my friends. I guess that's a good thing about being a watch addict. I always have a gift to give (don't worry I'm not giving away broken old garbage, all of my watches are in fabulous condition)

My addiction also branches out to jewelry. I love collecting really funky and fun jewelry. I don't mean stuff like diamonds, but the kind of stuff you can find for cheap at stores like forever 21. The only problem with that is they're not really that long lasting. Oh well, I get bored of jewelry faster than I do with my watches!

An introduction

Hi there and welcome to my blog. I started this blog as a place to discuss my favorite thing. Watches and jewelry. I started collecting watches and jewelry pieces over 10 years ago, and figured the next step to my obsession would be writing about it. I thought a hello was appropriate first. Hello blog. We're going to be very good friends.
