Citizen - The Royal Shop

CITIZEN is one of the most well known watch companies in the world and I personally have owned a few over the years. In fact I still have one that I was given for my sixteenth birthday - it still works and the classic design is still relevant all these years later! The Royal Shop has been teaching me more about jewellery and watches over the past few months and today we explore a little bit more about this brand and their story.  

Since its foundation in 1930, CITIZEN has promoted a multi-cultural mindset that fosters excellence and creativity. The very name of the brand conveys a deep respect toward craftsmanship and considered as familiar by citizens the world-over. CITIZEN’s Brand Ambassadors are always striving for the next ‘better’ and the new ‘now’. This simple belief that no matter who you are and what you do, it is always possible to make something better – and now is the time to start doing it. Fresh determination to perform at their best. Passion driving improvement. Determination to succeed against all who stand before you. 

Citizen Brand Ambassadors include Eli Manning, Victoria Azarenka, Matt Kenseth & Kelly Clarkson. See some of Matt and Kelly's favourite timepieces here. Seen above - Three Time Grammy Winner Kelly Clarkson & the World Time A-T Watch. This is their first Eco-Drive Atomic Time Piece for women. With soft lines and shimmering mother-of-pearl dial, this is the go to piece for the international traveller.

The Crane Barbados - One of the best beaches in the world!

I love my island and I was incredibly proud to see The Crane Beach nominated by USA Today as one of the top beaches in the world. I visited The Crane hotel a few weeks ago and as I sat at L'Azure Restaurant overlooking the beach I was mesmerised by it's beauty. I often take my beautiful island for granted and I was glad that I took the time to reflect and truly appreciate my surroundings. The Crane Beach is located on the southeastern side of Barbados and features dramatic natural scenery and a stunning sea of blues.

One Kings Lane Living Room Update

Interiors are my first love and I am always on the lookout for beautiful spaces. My aesthetic varies but as mentioned in a previous post I have recently been drawn to simplicity. This space has lots of interesting elements but the choice of furniture, fabric and accessories make it very laid back and simple. This space is a collaboration with One Kings Lane and Erica Chan Coffman of Honestlly WTF. Erica had a common problem: She couldn’t decide how to set up this all-important room, so One Kings Lane style team got to work. See the before and after and shop the look on One Kings Lane.

New Year - Time to DAZZLE!

I am beyond excited to share with you my first ever magazine cover! When Dazzle editor, Ryan Wills called me I thought he was calling to ask me to write for his magazine. I was beyond shocked when he explained that they were interested in doing a piece on me. I was sure they had made a mistake but at the same time I was very excited and incredibly flattered that they thought I was worthy of their pages. DAZZLE is a bi monthly publication which features young professionals, entrepreneurs, and established businesses. See more of DAZZLE on their Facebook page, view the issue online and stay tuned for the print copy coming soon !

I was so humbled to be featured on the cover. Previous covers have included the incredibly inspiring and successful Matthew "Fewwture" of Dream Real Projects along with equally impressive Amanda Reifer of "Fantasy" the band.
