Girl, you know you shine

 I have become very much enamoured by gold recently! I had been eyeing a watch designed by Marc Jacobs for quite some time and was sad to discover that not all of his Marc by Marc Jacobs line was stocked down south. In Australia. But this is where online shopping gives us a helping hand! It really is quite handy (but probably a bad thing simultaneously!) that you are almost constantly a mere click away from being able to buy anything you want.

My boyfriend was lovely enough to buy this for me from ShopBop and I had been waiting excitedly for just over a week for it to arrive in the mail. Sure enough, it came early in the morning at around 8am just yesterday! I was surprised by the large box as it only contained a mere watch but all was explained when I excitedly tore into the packaging to discover that there was a lot of foam and brown paper used to protect your purchase. Of course the watch itself was packaged, but there was also another ShopBop gift box that encased it.

Even the box is pretty!
Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry Glitz Watch, RRP $275.00
The watch itself was beautiful! It was a bit bigger than what I was expecting but it makes it all the easier to read the face. Us Asians are small in general so our wrists are quite tiny. Therefore, the watch was quite big but after watching a handy YouTube video on how to remove links, I successfully removed three links and it now fit much better! I never realised how easy it was and saved myself the time and money if I had gotten it professionally done.

Another purchase I made myself a while ago on Spreets was this necklace. My name never pops up anywhere so when I saw this offer, I found it pretty hard to resist! Yes, it may be a bit obnoxious but it's so Carrie! (Sex and the City)

This deal was amazingly cheap so I had to get it. I waited oh so patiently for this to arrive. It took about a month! But it arrived in the end and I'm very happy with this purchase. I'm pretty sure they have a website where you can customise your own name necklace too. Ouffer currently has a deal for name necklaces too if anyone is interested (:

But for now, I'm going to happily add these to my bling collection :D

Happy Tuesday everyone!


  1. Gorgeous watch. I own 2 MBMJ watches and absolutely love the boxes they come in. And love the name necklace.. I wear mine everyday without fail and have been wearing it for 4 years =)

    1. I thought I was the only one who fell in love with the sleekness of the black box! Name necklaces definitely fall into the classic category. They're so beautiful! (:

  2. I went a bit wild in Hawaii with the shopping. The range over in the U.S. is fabulous! Great purchases!

    1. Thank you :) And I agree! Shame Australia doesn't stock half the things available in the US :( And everything looks so fantastic too! I think I waste too much time online shopping ;)
