The watch in this blog post was GIFTED.
My eldest daughter whos 16, is currently studying for her GCSE’s. I’m so proud of her, as shes really dedicated and working hard. It’s a big point in her life. We’ve had a bit of jokey countdown together where she keeps saying ‘I’ll no longer be at school in X amount of weeks’ and we both shake our heads in disbelief. Secondary school went really fast! Anyone with older children who have gone through this will know how odd it feels to have a child at that age when they still very much need your support but blimey they’ve nearly left school people!
Nia is on her school Prom committee, which has involved the organising, booking of the venue and everything that’s going to happen as well as the additional fundraising to be able to afford it all. I had no idea this kind of thing happened. Each teen that’s going to attend the prom pays a prom ticket price, but there’s so much extra that they need to fundraise for too. I love that its been really creative though and they are having an Instagram wall and photo booth, so they can get as many memories as possible. Did you know there are pre-Prom and post-Prom parties too?
Well, I wanted her to have a gift that she can use and treasure and that’s why when Adexe London contacted me, I decided to look for a watch for her Prom day. She is going to wear a simple diamond necklace that’s mine and a gorgeous black vintage dress. The whole look is very classic in black and a little pearl white. Whilst we have bee looking for items together Nia had already decided she didn’t want to add a gold or rose gold, so I was on the lookout for a silver watch. This Adexe watch is perfect, as it also has a black face, so will fit in perfectly. Because it’s from the Sistine Minature collection, it’s more of a slim and dainty design which I think looks more feminine and suitable in a prom or black tie situation. It’s also very wearable as an everyday watch.
The watch strap is made of stainless steel, with roman numerals and there is a black gem on the pull out rod that you use to change the time. The watch came with a handy gadget to make changing the strap easy too.
As this is a surprise I haven’t included a photo of Nia wearing it, but I’ll update this with one in a couple of months once she has worn it.
The Sistine Collection of watches start from £79. The one I choose was £89.
