Can you believe it?! It's only 4 more weeks till Christmas!! How crazy is that!? Sooner or later, after all the honey ham and cracked bon bons, New Year's Eve will be here. A tad bit scary I'll say!  However no need to fret! To help kick start or inspire your Christmas preparations, I was delighted to be invited by the jewellery and watch giant Fossil to get the low down of their latest "Be Charmed" collection. I have always been a fan of charm bracelets and necklaces, though this stunning range from Fossil has a very unique offering. Packed with personality, Fossil’s silver, gold and rose gold charms are quirky and fun making them the ideal gift. The lovely Danielle from Fossil offered me the wonderful opportunity to create my very own 'charm story'. Who would of thought it would be a challenging task!!? Unique and full of character, each charm really has a story in itself. With many styles including the hot air balloon, world globe, tea pot, suitcase and gumball machine I was somewhat overwhelmed in choosing my picks. The first and easiest step was to choose the metal colour of choice - mine being GOLD! After much swapping and deliberating between charms, I found trusting your gut and first instinct was the way to go! In the end, I narrowed it down to these 3 charms, each holding resonance with my life at the moment.

Cupid's arrow for true love, headphones representing life's soundtrack (the ear buds actually move!) and the giraffe, representing my desire for the exotic. With all 3 grouped together, I knew these were 'the ones'.  I find it really nice that these motifs are visual reminders of what is special in your life.


More cute and quirky charms! Check out the cute pinecone and teapot!

Today I wore my Be Charmed bracelet, layered over the top of my Marc Jacobs watch. The gold and white detailing from both my watch and headphones charm are a match made in heaven I'll say! Don't think this combo will leave my wrist!
Fossil's Be Charmed collection also offers many cute silver and coloured detailed charms. If I were to create a silver version, I would definitely include the airplane, wishing well and hot air balloon below. But if you're feeling bold, why not mix up metals! There are really no rules to create your own charm story. To see the full range of what Fossil has to offer, drop by their website here or get up and close in store.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was scorcher of one here in Sydney! I went out for drinks in Surry and Kings Cross, had a big family do and went to see Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2. (Loved the battle scene I must admit!)
