Ever spot an item that just stuck with you for days and weeks after you left the store? Festering in the back of your mind to the point where you try to reason with yourself about which takes precedent: rent for the month or this particular indulgence.
Yup, it’s happened, and I’m assuming more than once. This time it struck me for an everyday essential: a silver linked watch. Now, not just any silver watch—lord knows that would’ve been too easy. A watch with a simple white face, no larger than 38mm, an uncomplicated link pattern, and quartz movement. Enter Nixon’s Kensington:
Too simple to wear on its own, paired with a leather bracelet this is my perfect wear-to-work watch.
…now Nixon, if only you would re-release the Kensington in an all-black or black/gunmetal design you will have a lifetime customer. Remember these? Yeah, I’m drooling. Please?
Have you ever been struck with the “want, lust, need now” feeling? What items are you lusting after this fall?
First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in
which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I
was curious to know how you center yourself
and clear your mind before writing. I have had a hard
time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
Thank you, I’m happy you enjoy my writing. My posts kind of just come to me throughout the day–I always have a notebook with me or I type a note on my iPhone to remind me later. If I’m writing on the weekends, I brew my favorite green tea, get comfortable and start browsing some of my favorite stores online–may sound weird, but it calms me and often inspires a post!
