It was my first time visiting a Shop Disney store since February/stores closed for lockdown. The Shop Disney stores are starting to open back up and I couldn’t wait to go visit! A special thank you to My Pretty Charmed Life and Disney Hungry for letting me know they were opening!
Besides shopping at DAVIDsTEA and Pandora stores, the Disney Store is my favourite place to go to do some good ol’ retail therapy, haha. What about you?
You can hear more about the outfit details and see closeup shots in my recent #StyleSunday IGTV video HERE or down below:
And that concludes today’s Fashion Diaries post! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend and have a great week ahead!

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!
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 Charmphotos 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. The updated version is also made in sterling silver and has the Pandora 20 hallmark displayed on the back of his head. This is the first anniversary charm where the logo is displayed on the back. Previously, the Pandora 20 hallmarks have been displayed near the front of the charm.
Prices from $35 USD and $40 CAD.
Each 2020 Pig Charm comes with a certificate, confirming its authenticity.
The 2020 Limited Edition Pig Charm is available globally only on Pandora’s estore. Very limited numbers are available, so it is best to purchase today, June 20th, 2020…if its not already sold out!
*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.
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.”

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 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
In this video, I share my favourite items from the Pandora Winter collection and why they are meaningful to me! I also show how I chose to design and style them together, on bracelets and with two different outfits! I hope you enjoy this video…I love that Ella was able to co-host with me.
* These Pandora Jewellery items were gifted to me from Gold-N-Memories Pandora for our collaboration on Instagram! They were so sweet and sponsored some of my Instagram content in celebration of their new online store! I have been a huge fan and customer of Gold-N-Memories for around 2 years and I cannot recommend them enough! They have amazing customer service and ship Canada Wide! You can see their full Pandora collection online and can place an order on their estore or feel free to give them a call or send them an email, with your order (that’s what I love to do).
A few days ago, I posted my Autumn Style | Ohm Lucky Red video on my youtube channel. This is probably one of my most favourite videos I have done…because it turned out better than I had imagined and planned out, in my head!
I filmed half of the footage and Snowman helped film the scenes with Ella and I outdoors. He executed my vision perfectly. When I was editing through the footage, I couldn’t be more happier or impressed!!! It was hard to narrow down the footage to be around 6 minutes long…there were so many magical, outdoor scenes! Thank you so much, Snowman.
I love that I get to take you all along with me, as I go on a my daily autumn walk with Ella. The majority of the outdoor shots are taken at one of my favourite parks, that goes around a gorgeous lake. When we were filming, it was right near sunset and it felt extra enchanting…a true golden hour. The setting sun flickered through the vibrant coloured leaves and the wind blew about and it couldn’t have been more perfect or autumn-like.
Ohm Beads was kind enough to send me the Lucky Red Whip Bracelet to review (thank you so much…I would not have these opportunities without each and every one of you!). This bracelet had been on my Ohm Beads Wishlist (you can see it on my Instagram) after I saw it on their Instagram page. When I pulled it out of the packaging, the lucky red colour was even more vibrant in-person. It instantly inspired an autumn style themed video!!! However, I had to be patient because the weather was not in agreement to film, right away. It was stormy for about a week, haha. But I waited patiently and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect afternoon!
I styled my Ohm Lucky Red Whip Bracelet with Ohm Wood Ent, Ohm Thanks A Lot and Ohm Heart of the Woods. I also used the Ohm WHO clasp as a decorative feature.
In the video, I enjoyed Vanilla Cappuccino by DAVIDsTEA. This was a tea my friend, Jo had recommended. When I am not sure how many grams of tea to purchase, I love to try it, “to go”. I decided to get, Vanilla Cappuccino, as a latte with almond milk. It was soo delicious and I am going to be purchasing at least 100 grams! If you are interested in ordering it, feel free to shop my affiliates links below:
A new video is up on my youtube channel! I am so proud with how this video turned out. Would you believe I probably spent about 12.5 hours total with filming and editing? I tend to get these fun ideas and images in my head of how I want a video to look…and I may get a bit crazy with filming and editing to make it as close to the ideas in my head!
I often get asked, “who films your videos”. This is such a compliment to me because…well, actually I film all my own footage and edit it myself!!! I usually set up a tripod and play around with different angles. This may take more time, but it is worth it because I get some lovely shots.
Occasionally, (more so, if I am outdoors), my husband will help take some footage for me. I don’t like leaving my tripod and camera unattended, so I feel safer having him around to guide the camera! However, this can be challenging too because I am not always sure if he is capturing the exact angle I am envisioning. Often, I’ll try to show him first, so he can have a rough idea. But what also ends up happening, is he sees a cool shot or angle and I end up loving that too! In this particular video however, it was all filmed by me!
This particular video features my Pandora Valentine’s Day bracelet (all about the charm meanings and why I put them on) as well as detailed information about my Valentine’s Day outfit and other accessories including handbag, shoes and other Pandora jewellery. Here’s a couple shots:
What did you wear on Valentine’s Day and did you have a special Valentine’s Day outfit?
When it’s a warmer winter day and the sun is shining, it is so nice to go outside for an afternoon stroll. Although, my husband and I love to go on walks (or hikes) together, no matter the weather! It is such a great time to catch up on each other’s lives, share ideas and enjoy one another’s company. AND…to take some fun photos of each other!
While my husband is a bit “social media shy”, he did let me post one photo of him, or rather…his favourite shoes (see below). And he helped me take some photos of my outfit! Usually, I am always setting up my tripod and putting the timer on to take my outfit photos. But wow!!! He was such a huge help and we had fun taking creative shots together. He was so great at listening to my ideas and making them happen! What a difference it makes having your best friend help you!
Following this particular afternoon stroll/fun mini photo shoot, we headed over to a local cafe for some delicious tea lattes. They were wonderful, but sadly…no pictures to tempt you with!
Let’s head over to the outfit photos!
I was wearing a wool coat, but since it wasn’t freezing outside, I decided I could brave a bit more cold…for a few outfit of the day photos! 😉
These flats are so comfortable and easy to walk in. And I love the light blush colour and velvet finish. I tend to opt for flats whenever possible or a nice chunky heel for casual weekends.
My husband loves these shoes. He has had them for over a year and loves dressing them up or down. He got them at the Hudson’s Bay.
Today’s bracelet stack combined my, Enchanted Forest Pandora Rose Bracelet with my Pandora Rose Bangle. I also wore my tan sliding leather bracelet on my other wrist with accompanying rose charms. And (of course) a few Pandora Rings and my fairytale tiara earrings.
I purchased this Nanette Lepore blush pink handbag back in the summer time and what a fantastic purchase it was! I have worn it so many times and I find the colour still works well for the fall and winter, depending on what you pair with it! Blush can be a neutral! And I love how it looks paired with my box pleat pants.
It’s been a bit of a delay since my last blog post! So much has happened the past two months, but the most exciting was my husband and I’s trip to Disneyland! It was the absolute best. Since I wasn’t able to go on rides (health reasons), I took a TON of video footage of all our adventures and I decided it would be fun to start a series called, Fashion Diaries. Basically, it’ll be a look into what I did and what I wore during special events, vacations, day in the life, etc.
So far, I have three videos published in my Fashion Diaries series, Disneyland Edition! I will leave them linked below. I hope to finish up days 4,5,6 either in 1-2 more videos. I ended up loosing the video footage from day 4 (so sad), so it should be easy to put days 4 and 5 together. Possibly, even day 6…depending on how long the footage is!
These videos are so much fun to edit, although they do take quite a bit of time! I have over an hours worth of footage for each day. It is amazing editing the footage because it truly transports me right back into Disneyland…I can relive all the magical moments!
Have you ever been to Disneyland? Or a special place you love to visit? I would love to know!
It finally feels like a proper summer (where I live), so I decided to film another style video showcasing how I like to style my Pandora bracelets, rings and earrings with my favourite summer outfits! I hope you enjoy this instrumental video and the fun locations I was able to film at! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! xx
