fossil 30 years

Happy Friday guys! We have finally arrived at the weekend and it’s also the last weekend for November! Personally I can’t wait for November to be over, it’s been a tough month and I am so ready for December and the holidays! I am sure most of you have heard about a little brand called Fossil, and many have bought something from there over the years. This month Fossil celebrated their 30th anniversary, they are officially in their dirty thirties 😉

I went into one of the Fossil shops recently and took the liberty of snapping up some photos of the items they have available, so you can get the idea of what to get your loved one for Christmas 😉 I recently got a gorgeous Fossil watch for my birthday (see it in my post here) and Steve has always loved Fossil stuff so I have gotten him everything from his wallet to his travel bag from Fossil. Let’s take a look at the Fossil timeline (see the play on words here ;)) and check out how the brand has grown and what it has available.
