The Pebble Steel Watch Review & Giveaway


Thanks to Orin from the blog Thrifty Nifty Mommy for sharing this review and giveaway. So I've spent the past week running the new Pebble Steel through the paces. I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to watches and I prefer models with an automatic movement over anything else. That being said, competition for the real estate that is my wrist is incredibly competitive. To be very frank, the Pebble had an uphill battle that I couldn't see it surmounting. Much to my initial surprise, the Pebble won ... ...continue reading

Most years, there was one special toy that I wanted more than anything else, and ... ...continue reading
