Few days late - but #December was an odd month for lots of reasons - but saw travel to #lasvegas for a big international trade show and then a short hop to #athens for the last visit of the year. Then a few parties for Xmas before stopping for a couple of weeks. Now back to the day job tomorrow!

Well that’s the last #hotelstay of 2023 done and the rest of the year will be spent in my own bed. I’ve not counted how many nights I’ve been in hotels this year (I don’t think I want to!) but at least with one chain I have had 70 nights as the app told me this morning!  It’s all part and parcel of the job but also it’s not easy at times either. 
My last stay this year was with #hotelindigo I do love an @hotelindigo hotel. On my blog and on here you can find many stays reviewed at #indigohotels across the world.
Last night was hotel indigo on #leicestersquare. I loved the theming and very apt for my last stay of the year to have all the #theatrical elements around. 
Now a bit of time to rest and recharge ready for 2024!

A busy few days in #lasvegas with work! The city really is like nowhere else on the planet with the wide range of #casinos #shows and #hotels to see. It’s such a mad place. Was a really good show for work with my companies product winning an award as well. A very lovely stay @virginhotelslv

Been quite a manic and busy #November! Trips to #lasvegas and #Germaany. Lit a show for @guildfordschoolofacting and had a busy time at work. @johannaspayne also fell in a tree. @max_theminiweenie just looked cute and we headed towards #xmas.

As we ended our #Route1 journey up the west coast of #usa we arrived in #seattle. It was defiantly one of our more favourite stops of the whole trip even if it was very cold! We spent a load of time up the @spaceneedle with a wonderful dinner on our last night. We also visited Seattle where there was a whole new level of the city created. On our way back to the airport we visited the @boeing museum which was very geeky!

It’s not been the busiest month for October with only a couple of days in Stockholm and then a stag do in London for a weekend, rest of the time has mostly been around home - which makes for a very nice change…. November and December will be very different!

My Tag Heuer buying experience

Tag Heuer Watch

For the last 10 years or so I've wanted to get a Tag Heuer watch. I grew up in the 1980's following Motorsport and watching the great Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost battling - always featuring on the McLarens at the time and of course now more associated with the Red Bull team. But since those early formative dates the Tag Heuer has been something to aspire to... It's a status, a badge of merit, a understanding and a self knowledge that you have done well. This show's nothing more than in the world of sales where things like the watch you wear IS your badge and credibility to open doors....

I've known for a while what watch that I wanted. I wanted to go with something with the Formula One connections but also a classic design. Not something that would go out of fashion. I want to wear my Tag Heure as my watch. Not something that goes in the draw for high days and holidays but something that I can look at on my wrist and feel that I've worked for this. Although not wanting to show off, I want to feel confident that it's on my wrist.

I decided to go for the TAG HEUER FORMULA 1 CALIBRE 5 watch. A metal strap was key and this product came with the option to have a black band on the strap. However I felt that this distracted from the design and also didn't make it such a classic. The next criteria for me was that it had a clean clock face. Yes I could have gone for one with the stop watches, but I much prefer a cleaner image to look at. Finally having a watch that auto charges was key as well for me - this should mean I don't need to replace the batteries as often!

On our recent trip to New York I decided that this was the time to purchase! I could of course bought on line but really I wanted the whole "experience" as much as anything else (and of course the watch!)

We made our way to the Tag Heuer 5th Avenue store (where else is more iconic to go shopping in New York?) to purchase and we were warmly welcomed by the wonderful staff in the store.

Kevin at the store offered us a nice couple of glasses of pink Champagne and talked me through the options with the watches. Although I was fairly set on which watch I wanted having done a load of research - it was great that they talked me through a number of different options and make double sure that I was buying the watch that I wanted.

We picked the watch out and then Kevin talked me through all the benefits and USP's of the product. We then sat down to ensure that the watch fitted just perfectly. One of the other things I wanted from this watch was to move my watch hand from the right to the left. At the moment I take my watch off to use a mouse etc... this one I don't want to so it was a bit weird at first but after a bit of back and forth with adjustments we got it just right for me!

Tag Heuer New York

Kevin and the team at the store could not have been more helpful with everything that they offered and helped with. Nothing was a problem and nothing was too much work. My Tag Heuer buying experience was just as I wanted it to be special and memorable (and in New York)!

As for the watch? I love it!! Its a bit weightier than my previous watch so that's taking a bit of getting used to but looking past this I'm loving wearing it. It's elegant, classy and I know that I've worked hard for it and that's what matters to me the most. The biggest problem? I don't think that this will be my last watch purchase, and just like Women's handbags that starts to get expensive!
