The fun sweetie Swatch watches initially caught my eye in Paris, when I was browsing through the design pieces in concept heaven Colette. Here they stood out as cheap and cheerful amongst the luxuriously expensive jewellery.
Switzerland is renowned for watches, and Swatch has always been a popular brand with an accessible price mark and collections to suit all ages. When I was younger I loved my Flik Flak Swatch watches, which were available in varying endearing designs, often decorated with sparkling gems. For adults the colours and styles are endless, some are classic others very unique.
The current ‘Pastry Chefs’ special collection features 11 watches. This series is particularly nice for Spring and Summer, filled with the soft, sweet colours and illustrations of a candy shop. The designs are bright and tantalising, using favourite sweet treats like macaroons and liquorice to entice you. My favourite is the Sprinkled watch, in which the clock face and the plastic strap are covered completely in a photo of hundreds and thousands. This multi-coloured accessory will brighten up your wrist
The ‘Sprinkled’ Watch costs £44.50 and is available online here.
I rarely wear heels, and usually only brave them in a safe environment that is with no stairs, road crossings or grassy terrain to negotiate. When I do decide to be extra girly and don a pair of stilettos I will always carry a sensible substitute for when my feet give up for the night.
It’s never pretty carrying a scrappy plastic bag and clutch bags definitely don’t have space for shoes, so girls are left with the dilemma of what to do with their heels after they have made their appearance for the night. Shusac was invented by Nadine, clearly a woman on a mission who created the product with a personal need in mind.
She came up with the idea after meeting too many women who either:
– carried heels around in plastic bags
– wrecked precious heels in unsuitable environments
– have given up on glamorous shoes after experiencing high-heel pain and gone barefoot!
ShuSac is the ultimate shoe bag specially designed to transport high heeled shoes with ease and style. A very light and comfortable to carry bag with separate compartments for each high heel, it is ideal for all occasions. The separate compartments prevent scuffing and a front zip pocket keeps smaller possessions safe. ShuSac has a sporty look, with a shoulder strap and is available in a variety of colours to suit business and fun occasions.
This is a perfectly practical present for a heel lover. Priced at £29.99 with free UK delivery.
