What's the time Mr Wolf?

28 August 2011

...Dinnertime! Well, that's judging from all the photos that are yet to come from HK. It's kind of embarrassing as my friends and family keep asking me what I did other than eat and shop. I really have to think long and hard to tell them what else I got up to because even meeting up with friends involved eating, shopping or BOTH! Well, errr, I think they are perfect partners, don't you agree?

Dress (HK), Cardi (Oasis) Belt (Vintage) Shoes (Nine West) Watch (c/o Guess)
The dress with it's paintbrush-heart print was a cute little find in the mall at Causeway Place that I keep mentioning (I told you it's my favourite mall!). On the very first day we arrived in HK, we headed straight to my family's apartment, dropped off all our luggage, greeted my family and then swiftly hopped in a taxi for Dim Sum with my grandparents in Causeway Bay. I remember feeling ravenous and my sister and I devoured our favourite dim sum but sure enough, the jet lag was starting to kick in. Much to the amusement of my grandparents, we fought against the sleep and we headed straight to a busy Causeway Bay and we BOTH picked up a dress each. Hardcore! This was within 3 hours of getting off our 12 hr flight but we did feel like zombies at the end of the day.

While I was there, I was lusting over some of the white toy watches that were sold everywhere and featured on too many wrists to mention. So imagine my excitement when upon my arrival back to the UK, H Samuels asked if I would like a new watch from the full range of Guess watches that they now currently stock. Well, what else is there to say other than 'yes please'?!

I was so excited to receive this watch as it's something I wanted but don't have the money to treat myself. One thing is for sure, I need to get out of the habit of pulling my phone out to check the time or even worse when people ask me what the time is and I say I don't know, only for them to stare at me and then at the watch on my wrist that is most definitely there and not a figment of their imagination. Sorry!

I'm impressed too, the only thing I can't do with it is snorkeling and scuba diving. I'll just make sure I do the washing up, walk in the rain, wash my (dad's) car, have a bath and go swimming with it on. It's OK, I'm alright with that.

  11. Hong Kong is all about the typical food, shopping and major sight seeing. I've never been to The Peak....can't wait to go. Is it true that Hong Kongers eat Dim Sum for breakfast?

    Ooooo I do love your new watch.

  15. Winnie boo! I was out last night and i got miserable sitting in this pub, so what did i do? I went on my phone and read your blog! Honestly, i was losing the will to live at one point and then someone commented on my phone because it's not an iphone, it;s a nokia. I got embarassed and i went back to being miserable again! I am such a betty buzzkill.

    I like your watch, i had a few Guess watches in my time. i lose things all the time so i think i might get a big one like yours so i don't "misplace" it as often! I'm utterly useless, so untidy and unorganised!!!!! I lose everything! xxxx

  33. Woohoo, outfit post :)

    I love these watches that are making the rounds. I'm a huge fan of bold, fun digital ones. And the bag it comes in is as adorable as the watch itself.

    Love the dress from HK and of course it was shopping and eating! It was a holiday, after all :) Can't wait to see more pictures.

  42. That dress is adorable, and so are you! I want to carry you around in my pocket, please x

  43. That's a guy snorkeling? Oh, I see it now. When I first looked at the picture I thought it was some kind of mythical sea creature! "This watch is perfect if you are the creature from the Black Lagoon with a need for efficient time management".

    Jet lag shopping is the best, whenever I arrived in Kuala Lumpur I always managed to hit several shopping malls before I collapsed. Although some of the things I bought were, um, unusual to say the least! Clearly my brain was slightly absent. I love this dress of yours, clearly you had your jet lag well under control! xx

  44. Wow I can't believe you got a free watch, how lucky are you!
