    Thanks @Mamabean ! The watch is a 31mm Rolex and the bracelet is 14k white gold from a local jeweler that my husband gifted me years ago. I wear them together almost daily (I am terrible about rotating my jewelry...unlike my bags! LOL). I haven't had any issues with scratching, though I don't think I could ever bring myself to stack a bangle bracelet with my watch. :shock: I rarely wear bracelets on my right wrist. I think I need to make it a goal to rotate out my jewelry more. I do pretty good with necklaces, but that's about it.

    Thanks for the pic! I love it!
    I force myself to rotate because I do the same thing and just keep wearing a combination I like..;-)

    Real life perspective from last night. Cannot miss her. Even I don't need my reading glasses for this pic :lol:
    Excuse my goofy expression. My dh was making me laugh lol.

    You can also sort of see the little necklace I was wearing and my earring showing there just a bit too.

    Haha... @pearaffair you’re too kind:kiss2:
    My regime is nothing special, I think I’m blessed to have good genes and I love dabbling in trying out new skin care products. I never go out without wearing sunscreen, rain, hail or shine, it’s a must living in Australia as the sun is so harsh.

    OMG ladies !! You make me believe there is a life out there ! I am almost 32, two small kids back to back , exhausted , without a good sleep in a last five years :eek2: , I cannot say my body falls apart ,but every once in a while I see those body changes ,skin changes ,new gray hair and it’s kind of scary !!!!!!!! So what’s your secrets ?? No food ?? My biggest concern is that I cannot lose weight that easy as I used to do . I never restricted myself with any foods , but I guess ,now it’s time bcs my yongest is 2 , and I still have those extra 4-5 pounds in me and they don’t wanna go away .

    I always protect myself from the sun. I don't smoke or drink alcohol. I laugh a lot every day. I workout every day. I find something to be grateful for every day. I am in a healthy loving relationship and that goes a long way to being content and feeling good IMO. And lol not having kids. That has helped I am sure.:lol:

    Sleep is a critical component but not one I get to enjoy quality wise nor quantity wise so luckily so far it hasn't caught up with me but it might one day...

    And genetics matters too but I definitely think environment plays big role and you can control a lot re aging.

    As for the weight I eat healthfully and workout every day and it is second nature to me now. Which is a good thing because I am hypothyroid and have Hashimoto's so it is very easy to gain weight.

    And @Golden_bird if I may add don't be tough on yourself. Be kind to yourself as you would be to other people. I bet you look great and a few extra pounds can be helpful as one ages. It softens the face. Having kids puts a toll on you but it is a priceless gift that you would never trade just to look younger!

    I am right there with you... but two years and one kid behind you ;-)

    When I start to feel bad I just remind myself of that big warm squishy mom hug feeling. So comforting. So if I grow older to be a big squishy mama providing the warmest most cushiony hugs, I can live with that! But I certainly appreciate people that look great at any age!

    It’s a small Cartier Tank watch. The brass cuff is a small as well. The pear ring on the stack is a 2.5 carat with a 1:1.70 ratio if that helps, it’s a fairly long pear.
