The Art Oblivion | Superimpose

In today’s video and blog post, I am sharing a closer look at The Art Oblivion‘s release of their new glass bead: Superimpose. I also share how I styled TAO Superimpose on a bracelet design.

So…make sure to grab a cup of tea and let’s get started!

* A special thank you to The Art Oblivion for sending me this bead to review and style with!

TAO Superimpose

If we live in the here and now, each moment is a surprise, every instant a new wonder. But it often fails to work this way. Onto the present we superimpose our expectations and opinions, based on the past or future. 

– Piero Ferrucci

The Art Oblivion released a new murano glass bead in their collection, today! It is called, Superimpose. It features a beautiful deep blue core with soft blues and hints of green in the centre. It has a pebble-like detail that is repeated throughout the centre of the glass. When I saw these colours, it immediately reminded me of the ocean and inspired a bracelet theme!

To see more details of Superimpose, as well as my bracelet design, I have created a special YouTube video. You can watch it HERE or down below:

I styled Superimpose with TAO In Search, TAO In Flow, TAO Roar, OHM X TAO Unveil and the OHM Mermaid. The bracelet I chose is my sterling silver Plain OHM Bangle.

TAO Superimpose retails for $65 USD.

In celebration of the launch, The Art Oblivion will be offering 20% on all TAO beads (including Superimpose) on August 1st and August 2nd, 2020.

This is a wonderful promotion, especially if you have been tempted by any of TAO beads!

The Inspiration behind
TAO Superimpose:

There is an art in laying an image or an idea over another to create something different and beautiful in its new complexity. 

There is a way in which one must understand each individual element on its own to be able to keep what is essential from being lost or misunderstood in its new form. 

I offer you SUPERIMPOSE as a talisman, reminder and invitation to stay present, to take all of the time necessary to understand individual elements as they are. Once we have gained this mastery, we can SUPERIMPOSE wisely to create something new that retains the essential elements of what has come before, and transform it into something more.

I have an exciting Ogerbeads announcement to share! If you are like me, I have long awaited a new charm bracelet from Ogerbeads. That day is finally here! Ogerbeads is proud to announce their first bangle: the Peacock Bangle. It is inspired by the last name of the designer: Evelien Pauw.

The Peacock Bangle:

The Ogerbeads Peacock bangle is available in 5 different sizes: XXS, XS, S, M, and L. It is sterling silver and it retails for € 75.

It officially releases today, Friday July 31st, 2020 at 2:00 PM EST, 20:00 Amsterdam time.

The bangle features beautiful peacock feather detailing with tiny little hearts. It is an oval shape and is similar to the Trollbeads bangle in-terms of sizing and shape.

The Vanity Stopper

With the launch of the Peacock bangle, Ogerbeads is also releasing a new stopper: The Vanity Stopper.

The sterling silver Vanity Stopper is also peacock inspired and designed perfectly for the bangle. It has beautiful feather-like detailing with hearts, as well.

The Vanity Stopper is designed to keep your Ogerbeads bangle design stationary and prevent beads/charms from falling off. Each stopper has silicone inside, that allows you to slide the stopper on and off the bangle, when needed.

The new Vanity Stopper retails for € 32.

The True Colors Charm

Also launching, along with the Peacock bangle and Vanity Stopper is the beautiful new charm: True Colors. It is a sterling silver charm that perfectly matches the new bangle and stopper.

Beauty reflects from the inside when you show your true colors. Be proud of who you are!

Trollbeads Haul | Summer Sale

Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and well, during this time. 

#BlackLivesMatter | To learn more, click HERE.

Back in June, Trollbeads had a wonderful summer sale on their retired beads! I found out about this sale through my friend, Linda @LSN2 on Instagram. After watching her IGTV videos on the beads she purchased, I could not resist logging onto the Trollbeads website and seeing what else was available. As soon as I saw that 4 of my Wishlist items were included in the sale, I could not resist!


In today’s Youtube video, I share an unboxing of the four new beads I ordered from the Trollbeads sale. I also share how I incorporated these beads onto my existing Trollbeads foxtail charm bracelet.

You can watch the video HERE or down below:

The four Trollbeads I purchased were: Wilderness, Noble Deer, Crown of Leaves and the Unicorn. I had also hoped to get the English Tea Party bead, but unfortunately it was already sold out! I have seen it available from some US retailers (with the help of Linda), but with the current Canadian dollar, I am going to wait for a better deal to come along. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be!

Did you order anything from the Trollbeads sale? I just looked on their website and it looks like the summer sale is still going on!

Tea PAWty | Ella’s “Gotcha Day” Celebration

Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and well, during this time. 

#BlackLivesMatter | To learn more, click HERE.

Yesterday (June 28th, 2020), we celebrated Ella’s “Gotcha Day”. I had never heard of a “Gotcha Day” before adopting Ella. A “Gotcha Day” is like a birthday, however it is celebrated on the day you brought your furry friend home.

Ella’s “Gotcha Day” was so fun! I made sure the day was extra special for her. We have Ella some special new treats and bones! And I also had a fun virtual Tea “PAWty” for her. I filmed the Tea “PAWty” for my #TeaTimeTuesday IGTV series. If you would like to join in on the celebrations, you can watch the video HERE or down below:

Have you heard of a “Gotcha Day” before? I think it is such a cute idea!

I had so much fun enjoying tea and treats with Ella and Georgina. I hope you did too! xo

Have you ordered anything from Shop Disney lately or have had a chance to safely visit your local Disney Store? If so, I would love to know what you picked up! There are always so many temptations when I walk into a Disney Store, haha!

I am so excited that the Disney Stores are opening back up! I have missed visiting them. But even more so, I have missed visiting Disneyland.

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your Monday night and a great week ahead! I am going to enjoy the rest of my Glitter and Gold tea from DAVIDsTEA. Cheers!

Fashion Diaries | Style Sunday Outfit of the Day + Photos from the Event!

Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and well, during this time.

This past Sunday, I took my best friend, @teafortiara out for a birthday lunch at Seasons in the Park. It is located inside a park/garden.

It was a beautiful summer day and for the occasion, I decided to wear a blue floral dress from Faithfull the Brand, my Loeffler Randall straw bag, Pandora jewellery and a blush pink straw hat I got at Marshalls Canada.

You can hear more about the outfit details and see closeup shots in my recent #StyleSunday IGTV video HERE or down below:

Pictures from the Birthday Celebration:

We had such a lovely time dining out together. Her husband also came and we enjoyed a delicious brunch. Tiara and I also both treated ourselves to a delicious mimosa!

It was also cute because Tiara and I both were “twinning” with our blue and white floral dresses! Totally unplanned. Great minds think alike 😉 Also: Can you spot her Cult Gaia bag? Love it!!!

Look at that gorgeous mountain view behind us!!!

Where I live, Covid-19 cases are currently low. Many restaurants and stores have opened back up, with strong social distancing and safety measures being taken.

At Seasons in the Park, all the servers wore plastic face covers, in addition to their masks and all guests were seated within a safe distance from each other. Since the restaurant was serving at half it’s capacity, it also made for a very intimate birthday celebration!

What is Covid-19 like in your area?

Time for Gifts and Cake with the Birthday Girl:

And that concludes today’s Fashion Diaries post! I hope you enjoy the rest of your Tuesday and don’t forget that a new Tea Time Tuesday is up on my IGTV!

PANDORA 20 | The Pig Charm | My Fairy Garden Pandora Bracelet

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time, while enjoying the Summer season. I hope this blog post adds a smile to your day!

This year, Pandora celebrates their 20th Anniversary of the Pandora Moments charm bracelet. This charm bracelet was first released in 2000. To celebrate 20 years of collecting, Pandora is going through their archives and bringing back a vintage charm every month in 2020. All 12 of the charms will be limited-edition. Each charm will be available only until it has sold out, which makes all 12 charms an absolute must for a Pandora collector!

I am so excited to join Pandora in celebrating this special milestone! To celebrate Pandora’s anniversary, each month, I will share a special story behind a charm in my collection, and reveal what the limited-edition Pandora 20 Charm is!

So, make sure to grab a cup of iced tea…and let me share with you what this month’s charm is…

* All 2020 Limited Edition Pig Charm photos are provided by Pandora *

The 2020 Limited Edition Pig Charm

Hello June 20th! Today we celebrate the relaunch of the Pig Charm! The original style number of this vintage charm was 790214.

Previously, the Pandora 20 hallmarks have been displayed near the front of the charm.

*please note that these charms are very limited. Until supplies last. 

The Limited Edition Pig Charm looks nearly identical to the original design of the Pig Charm. I love his wide grin and upright ears. For me, he represents fairytales, reading Lord of the Flies in high school and a cute nod to my guinea pigs: Harlow, Zooey and Georgina.

Celebrate #Pandora20 with me:

Each month, I celebrate Pandora’s 20th anniversary by sharing a special charm in my personal Pandora collection. For this month, I am telling the story behind my Fairy Pixie Charm. I have it as the centrepiece charm on my Fairy Garden themed Pandora Bracelet.

My Fairy Garden Bracelet is inspired by my sister and my mother. Each charm on this bracelet represents them. The fairies represent my sister and the flowers represent my mother and her beautiful garden.

I purchased the Fairy Pixie Charm when it was first released. It reminded me of my little sister, who is in heaven. Fairies and Angels have always made me think of her because I see her as my guardian angel.

“Sisters are like angels.
They sparkle, twinkle and glow,
they are the greatest gift our
hearts will ever know.”

– Author Unknown

Sadly, this charm is now retired, but I am excited to share more of the details and story behind it, with you! It is one of my favourite charms, in my collection.

I have created a video to more personally tell you the story behind the Fairy Pixie Charm, as well as the bracelet theme! You can watch it HERE or down below:

Garden Fairies come at dawn, bless the flowers then they’re gone!

The Details…

The Fairy Pixie Charm

The Fairy Pixie Charm is a two tone charm. The fairy is sitting with her arms tightly wrapped around her knees with a 14 gold ct. heart. She has a thoughtful expression and her hair is tied up into a bun, Tinkerbell Style! Her wings are beautifully detailed, almost like a butterfly. She is wearing a flowing dress and is barefoot.

The Fairy Pixie Charm reminds me of the same fairy seen in the Forest Fairy Pandora Charm. This charm was released after the Fairy Pixie Charm. I love that the Forest Fairy is sitting on a mushroom! It is such a sweet detail.

Do you own either of these charms in your Pandora Collection? I can never resist a fairy charm from Pandora!

For today’s blog post, I styled my Fairy Garden Bracelet with my Pandora Open Bangle (with floral themed Pandora Murano charms) and my Pandora Essence Bangle. I also added two of my favourite floral Pandora Rings and Pandora Daisy Stud Earrings.

And that concludes this blog post! I would like to thank Pandora for the opportunity to be a part of their 20th Anniversary celebration! I am so excited to share exclusive Pandora 20 content and moments with you, over the next 5 months! Pandora will be providing me with 3 of the 12 anniversary charms, in this celebration.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Take care, stay healthy and spread love, especially during this time…praying for the world. <3
