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 Poodle Puppy Dog Dangle Charm on my Disney pet themed Pandora Bracelet. This bracelet is a design I started working on this year. It is a “work in progress”, but I love how it has turned out, so far!

I have created a video to more personally tell you the story behind the Poodle Puppy Dog Dangle Charm, as well as the bracelet theme and stories behind the other charms too! You can watch it HERE or down below:

The details…

The Poodle Puppy Dog Dangle Charm

The Poodle Puppy Dog Dangle Charm is so adorable. As soon as it released from Pandora’s Spring 2020 collection, I purchased it straight away! This dangle charm has beaded fur and a cute dangling heart tag on its collar. It is made of sterling silver and features black enamel detailing on the eyes and nose. Prices from $45 USD and $50 CAD.

This adorable charm represents adopting my miniature poodle, Ella. Ella (inspired after Cinderella) is my furry best friend and a dream come true. She has been a part of our family for almost a year. We adopted her on July 28th and she was born on May 26th, 2019.

She is a huge blessing in my life and has brought so much fun into my days. I don’t know what I would do without her! Do you have a furry family member?

In addition to Ella, I am a guinea pig mom. Ella is a little “big” sister to them and loves taking care of them!

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 6 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

Pandora Jewellery Christmas Swap with FierceZhai, MyPandoraCharmedLife and My.Xpressions!

Tomorrow, I will be premiering my last video in this wonderful Christmas Swap series that Elizabeth, Nichol, Jahndra and I all participated in! The creative idea to do a Pandora Christmas gift exchange was Elizabeth’s idea and she passed it along to us girls! I had never done a swap before and I was so excited! In this post, I’ll share a little more detail about the swap experience.

How We Planned It All Out!

Elizabeth and Jahndra had done a swap together before, so they shared all their tips with Nichol and I! We all decided to create wish lists of Pandora items we would love to own (retired, new, hard to find, etc). This way, we could get one another something truly special! We also created separate chat groups (excluding one of us), so we could discuss ideas on what to get and avoid gifting the same item!

Once we settled on who was getting what for who, we went shopping for those special Pandora items!!! And all of us cheated by including some fun, non-pandora gifts too!!! It was too hard not to want to spoil these wonderful ladies!

Shipping All Over the World!

Once we had gathered up our items, it was time to wrap them and ship them off! What I loved most about Elizabeth, Nichol and Jahndra’s gift was how creative they wrapped their gifts. They had so many cute notes and hints on what to open first, etc. If I ever get to do a swap again, I am totally going to do this idea! I loved it and it made the gift opening experience very special and thoughtful.

Shipping was pretty interesting for all of us! Since we all live in different countries, it was quite an experience…especially, at Christmas time! One of the busiest seasons for mail services. For me, I had a few issues:

  • Canada Post was on strike, but luckily it didn’t take too much longer for Elizabeth’s gift to arrive…and it did make it before Christmas, thank goodness. I had wanted to ship with Fedex, but it ended up being crazy expensive, so I decided to try it with Canada Post after they assured me it would make it there before Christmas.
  • Fedex’s systems were down when I went to mail off Jahndra and Nichol’s gifts. They ended up loosing the handwritten paper work I filled out on both shipments. I had to make a few phone calls, but luckily…everything was sorted out, in a timely manner.
  • If there’s one thing I would do differently with shipment, I would have sent my items out earlier!!! But that being said, everything arrived before Christmas.

And What Did We Surprise Each Other With?

Linked below are all three of my swap unboxing videos, with links to each friend’s unboxing video of the gifts I sent her!

I will say this as a tip: make sure your external microphone is fully charged before filming. While I was filming Nichol’s gifts, my external mic ended up dying and it caused some issues with the sound/audio quality. Luckily, I was able to edit the sound to be slightly better…but still not to my normal standards. I was so frustrated, but you cannot re-film a swap/unboxing video!

Youtube Live with MyPandoraCharmedLife!

 

So excited to announce that Nichol and I will be hosting a second “virtual tea date” on Youtube Live! It has been long overdue, since we were planning to make it a monthly event! Both our lives got a bit crazier, over the last few months and we are happy that things have calmed down, so we can put some time into this!!!

In this Youtube Live, we will be discussing the Pandora 2018 Christmas collection, a Q&A and more!!! If you would like to join us, make sure to get a cup of tea ready and free up your Sunday at 5:00 PM Eastern! The live will be hosted on my Youtube Channel, FashionStoryteller, so make sure you have notifications turned off (just click that bell), to get a notification when the live starts!

We are so looking forward to it and hope to see you there!!!

Our Halloween Pandora Bracelets | ft. Pandora Told Tales

One more little post, although it is quite delayed because I published this video a few weeks before Halloween!

My close friend, Tiara (PandoraToldTales) was in town and we decided to film a video together. We actually had filmed a previous video, back in the summer time. Unfortunately, that footage got corrupted and I was unable to recover the video footage (just a few photos). I was sooo happy to finally have the opportunity to film another video with her, but more importantly…to see her and spend some much needed time catching up!

Tiara recently started her Pandora collection and she loves finding and hunting down preloved Pandora charms. She finds such crazy amazing deals on Pandora charms! We are hoping to film another video together, to give you tips and tricks on how to buy preloved Pandora.

Let’s also hope she starts a youtube channel or blog to share all her tips and designs, as well!

Have a lovely evening,

Emily xx

My Husband’s Pandora Bracelet | Mandora

 

On Saturday morning, I published a video that is very special to me: my husband guest stars along side me to show you his “Mandora” Pandora bracelet! I was so proud of him, I think he did a fantastic job since it was his first time on camera. I hope you enjoy watching this mini Q&A with him!

I would also love to know if your significant others like to wear more masculine feeling jewellery…or even have their own “Mandora”.

Have a lovely day!

– Emily xx

Thank you (youtube live was so much fun)!

A huge thank you to everyone who joined Nichol and I for our first official tea/coffee date on Youtube. It was such a fun way to connect and chat with you all and I honestly enjoyed every minute. Nichol and I are planning to do monthly live chats together, rotating on our channels…and I cannot wait until the next one!

During the live chat…quite a few of you mentioned us creating a Facebook group. This is such a fun idea and is something we are going to look into! We would love to know what kind of things you would like to see on the facebook group. Please let us know!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day and a great week ahead!!!

Until next time..

Emily xx
