Citizen Watch #BetterStartsNow

by Kerri on January 25, 2015


With the first month of 2015 almost completed,do you find yourself sticking to your resolution?

Do you even remember what you would do to make this year better than last year?

Citizen Watch would like you to stay on top of your goals this year with their fabulous collection of watches that will keep you on time and on the go.


I recently visited Citizen Watch brand’s global flagship store in Times Square, New York City. Located at 1500 Broadway, this is the first Citizen Watch global retail concept store in North America. The 1,300 square foot store will feature a full range of watches from Citizen Eco-Drive, DRIVE from Citizen Eco-Drive, and the Citizen Signature Collections.

While at the event I was able to learn about quick exercises that can be done anywhere on the go,  beauty tips to brighten up your eyes, the best ways to accessorize with a scarf  and how to add healthy foods into your diet. And of course we learned about their collection of watches.


Celebrity Trainer Scott Hamilton is a top tier expert whose background includes one-on-one fitness at Equinox, Tracy Anderson and leading New York locations. Scott was able to show us some quick stretches and exercises to keep us in shape in no time.  By using items that you might have around the house such as a towel or scarf you can perform these by adding basic lunges into your routine.  20150114_105524

For those of us who sit at a computer most of the day it is important to do some back stretches.




Christian Zamora is an expert stylist whose work has been seen on the pages of WWD and Vogue. His client list reads like a Who’s Who from the world of movies, music, and TV.  Christian was able to show us some techniques to brighten up your eyes with 5 steps, filling in your brows, mascara for your lashes, contouring, highlighting and adding color to you eyelids.


Lynn Roberts, VP of Communications at The Echo Design Group, handles Public Relations and Communications efforts for the 90+ year old brand. Lynn was born into the business as her grandparents started Echo on their wedding day in 1923. Lynn is the third generation to work for the family business. She got her start in
fashion by working at Harper’s Bazaar and soon after joined Echo. She has been in the fashion industry for many years and brings her expertise and fresh ideas to the fashion accessories and home design company.

Scarves are the easiest way to dress up a look by just changing up the way you wear the scarf you can have never ending looks. From wearing it as a headband, arm decor and the ever popluar loop scarves you will be stylish and looking fabulous in no time.  Visit Echo design for more stylish looks that you can try on for yourself. DSC_1091 DSC_1093

Breakfast is such an important meal, it fuels your day. Try Qia it’s not your grandmothers oatmeal. Don’t forget about keeping snacks on hand. Kind Snacks are great to have for those who are on the go and need that boost of energy.  Check out Mary’s Gone Crackers for those looking for conscious eating choices.
DSC_1122Ellen Seckler, the VP of marketing for Citizen watch was on hand to provide demos of the watches and teach us all about some unique features that several styles had to offer.  I was able to learn straight from the source about Eco-Drive technology.

Did you know that not one of Citizen watches has a battery? They are all powered by light.

Citizen Eco-Drive technology harnesses the power of light – from any natural or artificial light source – and converts it into energy which is stored in a permanently rechargeable lithium-ion cell. It recharges continuously in any kind of light to run forever.

I was able to see how the World Time watch works. With the push of a button choose your current time zone and the watch automatically sets itself no more trying to figure out how many hours ahead or behind you are.  This is an extraordinary watch for any traveler.


Below are 2 of my favorite watches that were showcased during the event. The Sunrise and the World Time A-T Watch are both beautiful and unique in their own way.

Thank you to Megan for her review of the Babblebaby doll. We received a doll for the purpose of review.  All thoughts and opinions are her own.
My 3-year old daughter is a little mommy in the making.  She seems to have a natural inclination toward baby dolls and caring for them. In addition, she is going to be a big sister in a few months. So, it was time for her to have a baby doll of her own.
With my little girl in mind, I was glad to receive a Newborn Nursery Babblebaby from The Madame Alexander Doll Company to review.  The Babblebabies are designed to look and feel like a real baby, weighing a hefty 3.5 pounds.

 With beautiful detail in the face, skin, and hair, the Babblebaby looks and feels real. The most unique feature of this doll is that it babbles and coos when we speak to it.

My daughter is thrilled when the Babblebaby responds immediately to my her questions.

 The doll’s responses always sound unique because it is programmed with over 80 real baby sound combinations.

 The doll also includes an off button, which is perhaps the most important feature for parents!

Our Babblebaby is the perfect life-like baby doll for my three-year-old.
The Newborn Nursery Babblebabies retail for $119.95 and are available at
