Loving my new Seizmont Moment Watch from Trendhim

Collaborative post:

I had been wanting a new everyday watch for a while and I had received a few pieces from Trendhim for my husband before so decided to check out their watch range to see if I could find one I liked.

They have so many great watches to pick from, a good variety of colours and styles. I really wanted a watch that could be worn everyday and be causal but at the same time look smart enough I could wear it to meetings for work or smarter events.

Trendhim have a really great range of watches to choose from and they supply lots of different brands. They have a lot of leather strapped watches as well as metal ones and so a great range of pocket watches. I decided to filter by metal straps to try and find the perfect one.

Trendhim is an award-winning men’s accessories brand established in 2007 by Co-Founders Sebastian Petersen and Mikkel Andersen in Horsens, Denmark.

Their mission is to inspire all men to express themselves by offering a diverse range of fashionable and affordable men’s accessories. That’s why they have a diverse product portfolio with products ranging from suit accessories and jewelry to bags and wallets.

Their range includes a total of 13 house brands only available through Trendhim, and their products are shipped to a total of 28 countries around the world.

The house brands are:
● Waykins
● Lucleon
● Fawler
● Sidegren
● Seizmont
● Arkai
● Otsu
● Bohemian Revolt
● Lazy Bear
● Salt & Hide
● Northern Jewelry
● River Grooming

I went for the Seizmont Alfred Moment Watch which I think it’s absolutely stunning and just what I was looking for. It’s a mens watch but can be adjusted to fit most wrist sizes so suitable for women too!

– Water resistance: 3 ATM
– Japanese quartz movement
– The strap is interchangeable

This watch is comfortable to wear and can be adjusted to fit my wrist. I like how good quality the watch is and how expensive it looks.

I have always been impressed with things from Trendhim. They always have great deals and free delivery over £29

A few new clothes

This post contains gifted products:

If you read my posts regularly you would have seen me mention Femmeluxe before and I had recently picked out some really great co ord sets, as well as tracksuit bottoms, knitted loungewear, tshirts and jeans. I wanted to pick up some more loungewear and a jacket. They always have so many great things to pick from but for now I wanted to get some more comfortable pieces.

Red With White Stripe Lounge Wear Set – Lexi

£14.99

These can be worn separately or mix and match making them great value sets. They are really comfortable and soft, which is what you want from a tracksuit. These type of sets are ideal when working from home through the cold months and can also be worn when going out to exercise.

Sage High Waisted Seam Cuffed Joggers – Roxy

£8.99

I love wearing joggers, either to lounge around the house in or to go for a walk in as well as if I need to pop to the supermarket for anything so these are a great staple for my wardrobe. I prefer high waisted ones and love the cuffed detail. They fit well and are very comfortable.

Grey & Black Reversible High Neck Zip Up Sleeveless Padded Gillet – Dani

£29.99

This is a really comfortable padded gillet and my favourite feature is that it’s reversible so can be worn as either grey or black so it’s a good investment rather than buying two jackets in different colours. It fits really well and keeps me really warm especially in this cold weather.

The delivery is always really quick from them which is great, it only takes a few days to arrive. I hate having to wait ages for online orders to turn up! The prices are always really reasonable too and considering how cheap they are, they are really great quality. I like to size up in the clothing from Femmeluxe as I find they come up slightly small.

A Brief History Of Bracelets

Collaborative post:

Image Source: Pixabay

Bracelets are a common form of jewellery that is highly popular today and has been popular for thousands of years. Archaeologists have found bracelets from various civilisations and made them by using numerous materials, showing humans have worn this type of decoration for a long time. Below is a brief history of the different kinds of bracelets, so you understand the origins of the jewellery you wear.

The Earliest Bracelets

Archaeologists have found evidence of bracelets that can date back up to 7,000 years, and these early bracelets were different to what is worn today. The earliest bracelets were made using tree limbs, shells, and grasses, and it was quite a while before metal was used to create them. The oldest ones have been found in China, Mesopotamia, and Egypt, and it was not till after the Bronze Age (2000 to 1400 B.C.) that you find precious metals being used, such as gold and silver.

Reserved For The Privileged Few

We find that the earliest bracelet designs from metal were often only available for people with a certain status, such as royalty. The skill and work required to create intricate bracelet designs meant that most people could not afford them. As a result, the poorest people continued to use natural materials such as wood and grasses to make their bracelets. In contrast, the fewer, more privileged people had beautifully intricate designs of antique bracelets created from precious and semi-precious metals.

A 17th Century Revival

When the 17th century came along, metalworking techniques had improved immensely, and it was now much more affordable to have intricate jewellery created. However, it was still out of reach of many of the population, so although they did have metal bracelets, the designs were often plain and simple. It would be a couple of hundred years before bracelets can be produced efficiently and at less cost, opening the doors for the masses.

All these antique bracelets can still be valuable today. The beauty of these pieces of jewellery is that when they’ve been well taken care of that most of their original parts are still intact, they can be sold at a higher price today. If you think you have one, you may wish to have a professional check it out for you and see its value.

The 20th Century

With the 20th century came a significant increase in technology, which also affected the available jewellery. In addition, the mining for the precious metals and gems used in the bracelets had increased, which meant more materials were available. The skill of the artisans creating jewellery also improved, and with an abundance of materials, lower costs, and increased demand, many more people started to wear beautifully designed bracelets.

As you move towards the latter half of the century, jewellery started to become mass-produced, flooding the market with affordable jewellery. However, the quality of the jewellery went down considerably, and many people still prefer handmade jewellery, especially those crafted prior to the 20th century, as these pieces have more character. 

Modern Day

In the modern age in which we live, we now have many choices when looking to purchase beautiful bracelets. There are many types of mass-produced jewellery available to buy, but there is also an increase in skilled artisans creating beautiful handmade designs. 

Many people still love antique designs over modern ones, which means there will always be a market for them. For more information on the history of bracelets through the ages, a search on Google should lead you to more articles that talk about this topic.

First Class Watches

This post contains gifted products:

First Class Watches are one of the UK largest online retailers for designer watches. They are authorised distributors over 150 different brands!

I am really impressed by how many different styles and brands of watches they stock and most of them are a better price than buying elsewhere. They offer free delivery and if you are ordering a watch on a bracelet style band they will adjust the sizing for you for free too.

They also offer a price match service so if you see it cheaper elsewhere you can send them a request to match it! They also have a lot of codes dotted around the site, the one I chose had a code just for that brand for 10% off but if not there was a pop up to get 10% off your first purchase.

I had wanted a new watch for a while but couldn’t justify buying one as I wore my Apple watch most days but I wanted something cool to wear when I wasn’t wearing it. I don’t usually go for typically feminine watches so the one I picked out was this Nixon Time Teller in this stunning galaxy print. It would be suitable for both men and women.

Here are some details about the watch I went for:

Core Features of a Nixon Time Teller Watch:


Nixon watches are created through a collaborative effort between the brand’s designers and artists and athletes around the world.


The Time Teller watches are inspired by minimalism.


24-hour markers are placed on the inner bezel for easier access to military time.


Water-resistant up to 100 meters or 10 bars.


The watches are powered by a quartz movement.


Model Specifications: A327-2336-00


The tonneau 40 mm case of the model is made of acetate with splashes of blue, navy and black.


Securing the watch is an acetate strap with the same design.


The black dial is contrasted by white-coloured indices and hands.


Placed at the 3 o’clock position is the brand’s name.


Functions of the watch include hours, minutes and seconds.

Overall I am really impressed with the look of the watch as well as the quality but also how quickly arrives and how well it was packaged. It arrives wrapped up like a little present!

Are you looking to start your own fashion business?

Collaborative post:

Many people have taken the time during the UK lockdown to take up new hobbies or even start a new business. I have seen lots of people wanting to start their own fashion business but they just don’t know where to start. It can be hard if you have no where to turn to for guidance.

Image credit : Pexels

I wanted to share with you some tips I have put together on how to start a successful fashion/ clothing business without breaking the bank with additional start up fees and being able to take it slowly.

The first thing you want to do is pick a name and design a simple logo, this can be done on Canva or you can often find free websites that you can create a logo on. You can then sign up to an online store website to manage your shop or sell your products on Etsy or Ebay if you don’t want to set up your own website.

You may want to start off selling wholesale products to get into the swing of managing online sales before you venture into selling your own designs. A good place to start would be to find a reputable supplier of wholesale shoes online where you can get your stock from.

This would give you a great range of shoes too ok sell on your website or online shopping account and means that you have a guide price of what to sell things for when you want to start selling your own designs too.

One way you can raise some money to get yourself started is by setting up a kickstarter account. You could offer a free item or accessory to anyone that donates to a kickstarter fund and promote it all over your social media.

Have you ever thought of starting your own fashion brand?
