My belated 21st birthday present



My 21st birthday was back in January, but I finally got round to going to the Jewellery Quarter with my parents today, to choose my birthday present! I wanted a nice watch for my 21st as you''re supposed to get something special and I thought a watch is something I'll wear every day and hopefully it'll last for a very long time!
We went round a few different shops and tried on loads, but this was actually the first watch I saw. I was torn between this one and an almost identical one with diamonds around the face, but this one won in the end as I thought I would be more likely to wear a less bling-y one every day. 

I didn't think I'd ever go for a mixed colour watch as I always wear gold jewellery, but none of the gold ones I tried on looked quite right. I love the mother of pearl face and the hands are glow in the dark! (I feel like a little kid but that's the best bit :D haha), I tried to get a picture of the glowing hands, but it just resulted in me and my mom giggling in the bathroom in the dark. What do you think? :) What did you get/will ask for for your 21st birthday? 

I'm at my parents at the moment, so I get to play with my mom's lovely Nikon camera. It's making me want one so badly! I'm taking full advantage and taking as many blog photos as possible haha. What's everyone else up to this Jubilee bank holiday weekend? I hope you all have fun! :) x

  4. I really love this watch and that is saying something because I am so fussy with watches! I was going to get one for Christmas but I went round every jewellery shop in town and could not find one I liked!! I think what I want doesn't exist (: Maybe by the time I turn twenty-one next year I'll have found the perfect one (: xx

  11. That's a great present, and you picked a really gorgeous watch. My 21 birthday present was jewellery too, I picked a ring that I wanted (and love)which is an awesome reminder.
