I thought I've been good.. First I resisted the temptation to get a lovely BBK from one of the consignment store. Then the H-store tempted me with a Bamboo lindy in swift (love grainy leather more *phew !*) so I pat myself on the back for being good.

Then last week they teased me again with an éclat Lindy (in colvert & turquoise yummm) but I held my ground. However, dear wallet wasn't completely safe. They managed to source the 3 enamels that I saw on the US website within a week!

So here are my first enamel trio..

Side note: I noticed some bumpy bits on one part of the enamel (near the tail). I don't think it's part of the design. SA said he'll compare once he gets another. Anyone who's bought this can comment?

So I thought yay! I don't have to go on a ban because I technically saved few grand by not buying the Lindy ;P

Then dear wallet was threatened again after an unexpected call from the other H-store. She offered an orange B30 (GHW!) but I forgot to ask what leather. DH & I both dreamt about looking at the B that night (he's so cute!). So we went to the store 2 days ago. Luckily (for dear wallet), I wasn't in love with it as I already have a classic colour. So by this time I was super proud of myself. Decided to reward myself with another first...

Then it all went downhill from there when we decided to go to the other branch... (We have 3 stores :biggrin:)

DH spotted another item that I've never owned before.
Any guesses?

So I'm back to square one & on a ban. At least I lasted few weeks & resisted several temptations :biggrin:

I've been trying to match DH's automatic watch collection (not even close). Eventhough Hermes is not (yet) a respected watchmaker in the eyes of watch collectors, I appreciate the quality & its beauty.

Have also just started organising my side of the bedroom & my storage ladder just arrived (my regular bedside wouldn't fit). The decor is a bit girly but oh well.. DH has selective vision anyway.

Had a bad day at work today & seeing the watch prettily displayed cheered me up :smile: (rest of the house is cluttered aaaahhh..)

wow such resistance!!!

and congrats to your haul - although there may be more?

Thanks Baileylab. That's all for now.. But based on how it's been the past 2 weeks, I have a feeling there will be more temptations in the horizon. I must be strong!
