You know I am all about luxury, so when Welly Merck contacted me and taught me all about their luxurious watch line; I was intrigued. Not only does Welly Merck make luxurious watches which are beautiful and keep accurate time, they make them affordable too. Love!

The Welly Merck story is one of true love. The company was born from a loving marriage between two people who traveled the globe to be with one another. Rather than re-tell someone else’s story, you can read about the romantic tale online here.

From this love, a fabulous and luxurious watch company was born. Welly Merck watches are nothing short of fabulous! They offer thin watch faces; and my Mother always told me, the thinner the casing, the more expensive the watch! There are watch styles for both men, and women, in sporty and dressy styles. I love these watches!

The sleek, metallic and leather watch offerings fit any taste in watches. It was really difficult for me to pick just one watch! The gold watch shown in these pictures is what I ultimately chose since my only gold watch is vintage, and I don’t like to wear it that often. My Welly Merck watch is classic, sleek, luxurious, and easy to wear every day. Love that!

If you can’t choose between watch straps, Welly Merck also sells watch straps, so you can buy one face, and multiple straps, to give your watch all different looks; depending on your outfit or mood. They offer metal, leather, and fabric straps. I love the metallic watch straps. This gold strap is so chic! I love how it compliments the hardware on my favorite handbag.

Welly Merck watches are so luxurious and chic. I am in love with my watch! These watches would also make great gifts for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, as well as Birthdays and Graduations. Love that!

Lacoste has introduced a fabulous new fragrance for the spring 2017 season; Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Pour Elle Magnetic edp. This pretty scent is both feminine and athletic; reminiscent of Lacoste tennis apparel. Love that!

In the spring season, I am always looking for a fragrance which is floral, warm, and ideal for moderate weather. I love Lacoste’s new Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Pour Elle Magentic edp because it offers a floral fragrance experience with slight spice from the Patchouli, and a smooth, warm base from the Vanilla Accord. Love!

Top Notes: Pretty lady Flower

Middle Notes: Violet Leave Absolute, jasmine

Base Notes: Vanilla Accord, Patchouli

 If you love florals, Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Pour Elle Magnetic edp is a fabulous spicy floral for your fragrance wardrobe. It has moderate strength, making it easy to wear daily, or in the evening. It is not too strong, so you can easily wear it in tight quarters such as the office or a theater.

I am looking forward to wearing Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Pour Elle Magnetic edp throughout the spring season, as well as into the summer season. It is a pretty floral to wear in both moderate to warm weather. Love that!

Also, this is a great fragrance to keep in mind for Mother’s Day. If you are looking for the perfect gift for Mom, this is a great gift!!!

Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Pour Elle Magnetic edp can be found online here or here.
