Hi peeps, so glad you found time to pop in during your busy Friday.
I've got some bits n bobs for you today.
Firstly, mindful of the need to post an OOTD, here's me layered up in a navy linen-blend cardi and a little floral print camisole over a navy longline camisole, all from Next, worn with the old trusty Peacock jeans. It's been a tad overcast these past few days, hence the jeans and cardi-cover-ups, but fortunately the weather has changed today, so hopefully this is my last cardi shot for a while!
So, OOTD, done.
Next up, dear readers, I have a sad tale.
Sitting comfortably? Tissue box at the ready? Then let's begin.
Last week when I was rockpooling with GS I fell on a jagged rock and grazed my arm rather badly. It was gushing with that red stuff, so I threw a few buckets of seawater over my ba-ba. Forgetting that I was wearing my non-waterproof darling Skagen watch. Despite nursing it for days in a plastic bag filled with rice, the watch never recovered.
I was sad.
But out of bad comes good. Yesterday I bit the bullet and ordered a replacement watch from Amazon.
It arrived today. How quick is that!
For several reasons, it's slightly different to my previous one but cute all the same.
And I am happy.
Skagen is a Danish brand and produces super watches and equally super jewellery.
I love the straps on these watches. They are so slinky. I love the brand and I love my new little watch. There's a lot of love in the air, eh!
Do you have a fave watch brand, BTW?
Have you tried anything from the Skagen range?
So, having now set a Danish theme to today's post, I'd like to sign off by sharing these pics with you.
I collect stones as mementoes of places I've visited.
I mark them with the place and date. These are from my recent holiday in Denmark.
If they're big enough, I write more detail. The larger one at the back I found three years ago. I know which beach I found in it and when. I know the type of stone it is (gneiss). Because it's all been neatly logged on the stone with a white pen.
And that makes me happy too.
Lovely, meaningful memories.
Just felt inspired to share this with you.
I collect pine cones and little stones as holiday mementoes.
Do you have favourite things that you take home with you from holiday?
A la perchoine.
