/ December 2, 2014

giftguide I’m so ready to give this year, as I’ve been doing plentiful shopping for myself for months now. With it just being me, myself, and I for the most part, I don’t have the strict obligations of shopping for others. I haven’t really started my Holiday shopping yet, but every year I try to gather some ideas for my lovely readers which results in ideas given to me as well.

Today I am talking about the Victorinox ‘Night Vision’ Swiss Army Watch – a multi-functional piece of art. (more…)
