When do you feel most free?
"When I’m out and about with my camera. I love to visit new places and discover new cultures…I’m off to Antwerp next week! I love being in forests too and spend a lot of time in woodland back at home getting muddy and soaking up the fresh air! That is when I feel most free!"
"I chose the fte3002 Rose Gold Watch with tan leather strap because I feel that it suits my own style the best. It is also the most flattering to my pale skin tone and I love the look of the tanned leather against the brushed steel watch face. I wear it both to work and socially as it seems to go with everything! I particularly like the subtle detailing of the fte logo on the underside of the clasp and on the back of the watch itself as I’m not a person that’s particularly into brand labelling…but I do look for the quality in products."
