Pandora releases their Cinderella 70th Anniversary Capsule Collection | Disney x Pandora

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time, while enjoying the Autumn season! Today, an enchanting new capsule collection released from Pandora:

As Disney Cinderella celebrates her 70th birthday this year, Pandora and Disney partnered to create a new, sparkling ten-piece capsule collection inspired by the iconic princess.

– Pandora

I am excited to share this capsule collection with you, as well as celebrate Disney Cinderella’s 70th Anniversary! So, make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea and let’s begin!

The Capsule Collection:

Pandora’s design team worked with a Disney Princess Specialist to ensure every piece of jewellery perfectly reflects the beloved fairytale. Each hand-finished pieces are inspired by Disney Cinderella’s journey and feature beloved characters and themes from the film.

Tapping into beloved characters and themes from the film, the designers carefully created pieces inspired by Disney Cinderella’s enchanting journey.

It is very hard for me to pick a favourite from this collection. As many of you know, I am a huge Disney Cinderella lover. In fact, my miniature poodle name (Ella) was inspired by Cinderella herself!

I have two Cinderella themed Pandora Bracelets already and I think it is safe to say that I will be starting a third! I love every single one of these charms! I also love the new earrings, necklace and ring. They have such intricate and whimsical details.

The Bracelet:

I love that Pandora made the Pumpkin Coach into a clasp! I am currently debating if I should change my Ella themed bracelet from my Disney Parks Pandora Moments Bracelet for this one! It is so beautiful.

The Charms:

This dangle reminds me of my guinea pigs and Ella. I am currently debating whether it should go on my Ella themed Pandora Bracelet or add it to a new bracelet design. I will keep you guys posted!

I love openwork charms and this one has the clock tower on the back!

It is so lovely to see little Suzy and a sewing themed charm from Pandora. I have wanted a sewing charm for YEARS! As many of you know, my background is in Fashion Design and I have always been sad that Pandora never released a sewing charm into their Hobby charms. It is finally here and it could not be more adorable or magical! I love this scene from the movie.

The scene where the Fairy-Godmother transforms Cinderella’s torn dress into an enchanting ballgown is iconic and a beloved magical moment! I love how Pandora added blue cubic zirconia’s to represent the Fairy-Godmother’s magic!

If I had to pick a favourite Disney character, it would have to be Gus (Gus Gus). He is so funny and sweet. I love how Pandora added his hat with green enamel detailing. He also has the cutest little expression on his face!

Pandora updated the two-tone 14 ct. gold version of the Carriage charm into an enchanting Pandora Rose version! It looks so feminine and romantic. It will pair beautifully with the Disney Parks Cinderella Coach Charm.

The Earrings, Necklace and Ring:

And that concludes this blog post! I would like to thank Pandora for sharing these photos with me! I am so excited to shop this collection! I currently have a few pieces on hold at my local Pandora store. Will you be purchasing anything from this enchanting collection? Please let me know, down below!

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day.

Halloween Bracelet | Ogerbeads & Corner 35

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

In today’s blog post, I am sharing a look at another Halloween themed bracelet. This bracelet is primarily Ogerbeads, but has a spooky touch of Corner 35. I really love how this bracelet design turned out, but I do have a sad story: I lost this bracelet just over a week ago. But more on that later!

If you would like to see what beads and bangle I used to create this design…make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea and let’s get started!

This post contains gifted items.

The Beads:

The first three beads I have to share with you are some of my favourite Murano glass beads from Ogerbeads. As my centrepiece bead, I have Snowdust Confetti. I love the dotted details and golden sparkle. It reminds me of a cold Halloween Night! Snowdust Confetti is included in the 3=2 promotion from Ogerbeads.

Further spread out from Snowdust Confetti, I have two Snowdust Baroque Festival beads. Both the small core and retiring universal core (3=2 deal) size options are on sale. I love the golden swirls on this bead. It adds a hint of magic and chilling breeze!

To the left of Snowdust Confetti, I have my favourite sterling silver bead from Ogerbeads: Bewitched. You may remember me featuring this bead on last year’s Halloween bracelets YouTube video:

The Bewitched bead is part of Ogerbeads 5PlusDeal (receive a 6th bead free when you order 5). It has so many “spooktacular” details including a menacing grin, witches hat, cobwebs and a spider.

To the right of Snowdust Confetti, we have the cutest spooky friend: Wannabe Ghost by Corner 35.

I love designer Wendy’s description of him:

It looks like a ghost and it acts like one. But if you look closely, you can see his tiny feet sticking out! His arms are ready to grab and terrify you. Aren’t you scared?

Wendy Verkooijen

Isn’t he so cute and fun? Those feet on the bottom are so adorable!

This sterling silver bead is compatible with all major interchangeable bracelet systems.

Moving along, I also have two sterling silver beads from Ogerbeads. They are opposite sides of the bangle. They are Perspective and Universe. They are also included in the 5PlusDeal.

For bangle stoppers, I added two Black Widow Stoppers from Ogerbeads, also included in the 5PlusDeal.

The Bracelet:

Lastly I added the stoppers and beads onto my Ogerbeads Peacock Bangle. If you would like more information about this bangle, I do have a blog post and a Youtube Video:

As mentioned earlier, I lost this bangle bracelet just over a week ago. I was out for the entire day. It was when I got home that night, that I realized the bracelet was missing. I was shocked and heartbroken!

The next day, I tried to retrace my steps. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful at finding it.

How did I manage to loose it? I believe the bangle fell off my wrist on my morning walk with my miniature poodle, Ella. I usually put the handle part of her leash, on my wrist. I hold the rest of the leash in my hand.

Since this bangle is quite flexible, I am confident that part pulled onto the open bangle design (as Ella pulled on the leash) and that expanded it. It would only be a matter of minutes before it would fall off. And since I was already wearing an additional bracelet and had the leash on my wrist, I did not notice it falling.

As some of you know, it is so heartbreaking when you loose a jewellery item, but I like to think that someone found it, who needed a smile in their day. It makes me happy to think someone is wearing it and loving it. And the silver lining is that these beads are currently still available. I will be able to replace them, over time.

I will need to be more cautious with open bangle designs, moving forward. I won’t be wearing them on walks with Ella, that is for sure! It was a good lesson learned.

Have you ever lost a bracelet or jewellery piece? Were you able to find it?

And that concludes today’s blog post! If you would like to see my other Halloween bracelet designs, I have Youtube videos of my Pandora Halloween Bracelet, as well as my OHM Beads Halloween Bracelet.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day.

Pandora 20 | The Swirl Charm

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

This year, Pandora continues to celebrate 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 continue celebrating Pandora‘s special milestone! To celebrate Pandora’s anniversary, each month, I 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 tea…and let me share this month’s charm.

* All 2020 Limited Edition Swirl charm photos are provided by Pandora *

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

I am so happy to see another two tone charm has been added to the Pandora 20th Anniversary collection! I am excited to add this charm into my collection, as I do not have the original. I do have a few charms that are similar to the Swirl charm however, including one of my first Pandora charms, the Rose Leaf style 790136. I purchased two of these charms and I can see myself wanting to pair them with the Limited Edition Swirl Charm!

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 two charms: the Witch and the Hocus Pocus Dangle Charm. I have them on my Halloween themed Pandora Bracelet:

Each charm on my Halloween themed bracelet represents a special childhood memory or favourite halloween tradition or activity. The main colours on this bracelet are oxidized silver, silver, orange and black. It has a mixture of vintage Pandora charms and new charms.

My Story behind the Witch and Hocus Pocus Charms:

Both the Witch and Hocus Pocus dangle charm represent my best friend, Tiara and our favourite Halloween movies: Hocus Pocus and Halloween Town. Each year, we cannot wait to enjoy some delicious Pumpkin Chai lattes and spending an afternoon watching movies together.

I paired these two charms together, since the stories behind them are the same. I also think they look so cute together!

I have created a Youtube video to more personally tell you the story behind these two charms! You can watch it HERE or down below:

The Details…

The Witch Charm

The Witch charm is a sterling silver charm that features a witch in flight, on her broomstick. She has a grinning smile, long pointy nose and adorable witch’s hat. She is now retired and her style number is 790544.

The Hocus Pocus Dangle Charm

The Hocus Pocus Dangle Charm was available in the US. It is a sterling silver dangle charm and has cubic zirconia accents, with orange and black enamel detailing. It features a witch’s hat, bats and the inscription: Hocus Pocus. The style number is ENG792017CZ_10.

Here are photos of other charms on my
Pandora Halloween themed bracelet:

Skeleton Girl Charm is so cute! I have her as the centrepiece on this year’s design. She has heart-shaped eyes and an upside down heart, as her nose. I also love how her lower body dangles, like she is dancing! She came out in this year’s Autumn Collection.

I am a huge fan of the Nightmare Before Christmas and couldn’t resist adding the new Disney Nightmare Before Christmas Double Dangle Charm. He goes perfectly with my Disney Parks Exclusive Jack and Sally charm.

I also have the new Disney Parks Exclusive charm, Halloween Mickey charm. My husband and I love visiting Disneyland during Halloween time! We love taking a photo in-front of the giant pumpkin Mickey. This was a must-have for me!

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 2 months! Pandora will be providing me with 3 of the 12 anniversary charms, in this celebration.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day.

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 Forest Trinity Charm. I have it on my “Enchanted Forest” themed Pandora Bracelet:

My “Enchanted Forest” bracelet is inspired by my love of forests, hiking and fairytales. The main colours on this bracelet are Pandora Rose, silver, gold and forest green. It has a mixture of vintage Pandora charms, as well as some charms from Pandora 2019 Autumn Collection.

My Forest Trinity Charm can be found on the left section of the bracelet, beside the Mystery Moss two tone Pandora charm.

My Story behind the Forest Trinity Charm:

The Forest Trinity charm represents a special trip my mother took to come visit my husband and I. We moved across the country and it had been a year since we last saw her. During her visit, we had so many adventures! Some of the most memorable adventures were hiking in the mountains, and exploring the beautiful sights and sounds. I had to add the Forest Trinity charm to my collection to represent this special time together.

The charm features three dangles: a bird, leaf and peridot. And since my mother, husband and I were a trio…I couldn’t think of a more perfect charm!

I have created a Youtube video to more personally tell you the story behind the Forest Trinity Charm! You can watch it HERE or down below:

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day. Take care, stay healthy and spread love, especially during this time. <3

In today’s video post, I am sharing my Endometriosis Diagnosis Story. I published this video on Friday.
