Timex Watch

by Mary on September 5, 2014

My current favorite accessory is my newest: my Timex watch.

timex mint watch

I was browsing through my local Target a few weeks ago when I stumbled across this mint green Timex watch. I usually browse through the jewelry and watches area at Target but rarely buy anything other than clearance priced necklaces. However, this watch was calling my name!

Being the good little shopper who paid off a bunch of credit card debt, I don’t do impulse buys over $10. The watch called to me, I admired it, took a photo, and then walked away. I do this often while shopping and it helps keep me on budget despite my love for cute things.

After a couple weeks I still wanted the watch so it became mine! Bought online at Target.com it was reasonably priced and totally worth the wait. As soon as I got it in the mail I squealed with excitement!

timex weekender watch

I’ve worn it with a ton of different outfits so far and plan on getting a couple different Timex weekender straps to switch out with the mint one. The ability to switch out the strap and change the watch was one of the things I liked about this particular watch. It’s more versatile than any other watch I’ve owned! My Amazon shopping cart currently has a tan strap and a navy blue and white strip strap.

Things YOU Buy

by Mary on August 11, 2014

As you may know from previous posts, I’m an Amazon affiliate. This means I get a small commission any time someone buys something on Amazon through a link on my site. It’s not a huge amount of money and mostly comes from book recommendations I’ve made like Chris Powell’s Choose More, Lose More for Life, The Triathlete’s Training Bible, and Beat Sugar Addiction Now!.

However, I the other thing I find fascinating about being an Amazon affiliate is that I can see other items people have ordered. (Not who bought them, just that they were bought.) I find it so interesting and I’ve actually bought several items personally after seeing them show up in the list of ordered items. It’s my sneaky way of getting product recommendations from readers!

Since I enjoy seeing what you’ve bought I figured I should share the wealth of info and list some of the items YOU have bought!

This is such a genius idea. We have the balance balls at work to sit on but I don’t really enjoy it. I’d love to get this chair so I can still improve my core but keep my back happy and healthy.
