If you would like to see how I styled her and the other charms on my Pandora Bracelet, make sure to grab a cup of tea and let’s get started!
Re-live the memories of watching iconic Disney’s Aristocats with this hand-finished Disney Marie charm from the Disney x Pandora Favourites series. Created in collaboration with Disney’s in-house toy design team, the cat’s design is centred on her bow details and long lashes that highlight her ladylike expression. The Marie sterling silver charm features hand-applied enamel details as well as an enlarged head and smaller body. Wear it with your favourite Disney x Pandora charms to create your own style adventure.
Happy May Long Weekend! I hope that you and your loved ones are safe, healthy and doing well.
In today’s blog post/video, I am sharing a Pandora unboxing of a special charm I won through Pandora Las Vegas‘ BINGO Giveaway. It was hosted on their Instagram page.
I still cannot believe I won!!! I think the last time I won a giveaway was when I was 8 years old. I made a YouTube video of when I first unboxed the charm. You can watch it HERE or down below:
The Pandora Charm I won is a Las Vegas exclusive. It is called the Lucky Dice Charm. It retails for $50 USD and the SKU is: 791269CZ. It has 14 handset cubic zirconia accents that sparkle when they catch the light.
This charm totally makes me think of my husband and I. We both love to play boardgames together and I think we were both “lucky in-love” to find each other!
I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe, during this outbreak. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I also hope this video adds a smile into your day!
In this video, I share my Pandora charms haul from their early March 2020 promotion, here in Canada. I am over a month late in getting this video up, but I hope you still enjoy seeing the different charms that I picked up! I purchased charms from both from my local concept store and from Gold-N-Memories Pandora. It is so crazy to think that early March, the stores (in Canada) will still open. Things have changed so much…in such a short time!
A few weeks ago, Snowman (AKA, my husband), was able to find the Pandora 2020 New Year Dangle Charm, for me. It had been on my Wishlist, but I wasn’t in a huge hurry to get it, when it first released. With the busy Christmas/New Years season, I had been so busy and didn’t have time to pop over to a Pandora store! Well, once February was nearly here, I realized I better get the charm, before it sold out! BUT…ALAS, it was sold out every where I checked, including online. I was so frustrated that I didn’t purchase it, as soon as it came out!
Luckily, my husband was able to find one, during a business trip. It was the last one. These are the types of situations that I call the, “meant to be” ones!
Why was this charm on my Wishlist? 2020 is a huge year for me. There’s so much going on, this year and I wanted this charm to represent that! And don’t worry…you’ll hear all about my 2020 year adventures on here, Instagram and YouTube!
This charm is elegantly detailed with beautiful blue cubic zirconia surrounding a classic Pandora heart shape. In the inside of the heart, there is a dangling 2020 detail. I especially love the bale details, which is what first attracted me to the charm. It reads: “Happiness, Health & Love”. All three of those words summarize some of the things already planned or currently happening this year, for me.
Here is what Pandora has to say about this charm:
“This limited edition Pandora Moments 2020 dangle charm in sterling silver is the perfect way to celebrate and commemorate the start of an exciting new decade. The sparkling heart frame features the numbers 2020 designed in elegant script, while the blue cubic zirconia that surround it create a beautiful ombré effect. On the top part, the silver heart dangle charm is engraved with the inspiring words: “Happiness, Health, Love” to remind you of everything that matters in the upcoming decade.“
This charm retails for $55 CAD. You can find the ALE and S925 markings on the front, right side of the bale. It is a lighter weight charm and really catches the light!
I plan to put this charm on a 20th themed Pandora bracelet. Currently, I am thinking it would make a nice centrepiece charm, however I’ll have to wait and see. I do plan to add all the Pandora 20 Anniversary charms to this 20th theme, as well (if I am lucky to get them all).
I still have to add my 2020 dangle to a design theme. For this post, I just added it to my Pandora medium sized O pendant. I am excited to design with it afterwards, and perhaps pair it with the, We Can Do Anything charm. I think they will compliment one another beautifully, especially with the blue cubic zirconia details.
I currently have a mini design with my Pandora 20 charms (on my open bangle) and I would also love to find a way to incorporate my 2020 dangle and the, We can Do Anything charm to these, as well.
For Pandora 20th Anniversary charms, I have January’s Strawberry and February’s Frog. I paired them with the two Rainbow muranos (retired), two Hearts All Over charms, the Blue Water Heart charm and added them onto my Pandora Open Bangle. I am excited to pair all of theses pieces with the 2020 dangle charm, but perhaps on a Moments charm bracelet. I just need to decide on which one!!!
Speaking of which, any one else hoping that Pandora will do a 20th Anniversary bracelet? I really hope they will!!!!!
Below, is the January Pandora 20th Anniversary Strawberry Charm, followed by February Pandora 20th Anniversary Frog Charm. I still cannot believe how lucky I was to be able to add them to my collection! There is such limited stock available, all over the world!
And that’s it for today’s blog post! Do you plan on creating a 20th Anniversary or 2020 themed Pandora bracelet?
Last week, I published a new YouTube video: My Harry Potter themed Pandora Bracelet. You might remember the blog post I did…well, this is an extension of that post, as well as showing how I styled my bracelet with a Harry Potter inspired outfit! You can watch the video, HERE.
In this video, I unbox the Pandora 20th Anniversary Strawberry Charm, as well as a special charm for my “Ella/Dog” themed bracelet!
This year, Pandora celebrates their 20th Anniversary of the, Pandora Moments charm bracelet. 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 and very limited quantities available. Each charm will be available only until it has sold out, which makes all 12 charms an absolute must for a Pandora collector! To learn more about Pandora’s 20th Anniversary, CLICK HERE.
I ordered my Strawberry charm at 9:00 PM EST on January 19th, 2020. My friend, Linda helped me find it on the Canadian estore. I had no issues with my order! However, I heard from a few Canadian and American friends that their, Strawberry Charm orders were cancelled, sadly!
This video was filmed the last week of January and I hope you enjoy seeing my unboxing and first impressions of the Strawberry charm! I also compare it to the original, retired Pandora Strawberry Charm.
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).
Happy Weekend!!! I hope you are enjoying a relaxing and cozy Saturday as I write today’s blog post. And what is that blog post about? Well, if you watched my Instagram stories, you would have seen a mini unboxing of my Gold N’ Memories package that arrived on Thursday. It was my order from Pandora’s Boxing Day sale!!!
I really love ordering through Gold N’ Memories, far more than the Pandora estore. The staff are very personable and take the time to get to know you and help you out with your choices, whether it’s through email or the phone (I have yet to shop in person, but I am certain it is a great experience too). My absolute favourite to work with is Stephanie. She is just the best and is so genuine. Another great thing with ordering through Gold N’ Memories is the shipping! I find it much faster than the Pandora estore AND…you guys, they package it all so beautifully and securely. I never worry about any of the items getting damaged on the way.
Anyway…let’s get to what I picked out! Disney x Pandora charms were included in this sale, so I had to get the Mickey Mouse Spacers (two, of course), I got the Fairy Godmothers from Sleeping Beauty as well as the Aurora Murano.
I also picked up the Positivity Essence bead. I’ve been told I’m an extremely positive person, so it made sense to add it to my collection…not to mention it is gorgeous!!! I love the white and grey detailing.
The last charm I picked out wasn’t actually part of the Boxing Day sale…it is a new release from the Pandora Valentine’s Day collection 2018. I just had to get him…I couldn’t wait for a promo!!! His name is Rob Bot (but I prefer to call him, Mr. Robot) and he reminds me of my husband. I am going to do a separate blog post on him, so stay tuned for the meanings behind him and some cute photos!
Anyway, that’s it for my mini haul…so curious to hear what you picked up from the recent sale!!!
Well, it has been a very “Disney-fied” time on my youtube channel recently. I am slowly finishing my way through my Disneyland videos. As of most recently, I have published both my Disneyland and Disney x Pandora Park Exclusive charm videos to youtube (see below). And I am currently working on my final instalment of my Fashion Diaries | Disneyland series. With this instalment, I am trying to fit days 4, 5 and 6 together. Here’s hoping I can edit the footage so it is not too long. The only sad part is, I ended up loosing my day 4 video footage, so it will be mostly photos on that day.
Once I have finished editing and uploading all my Disney content, I will be in full Christmas mode. I am really looking forward to filming some fun Christmas content for you…and (of course) that will include my updated Pandora Christmas bracelet!
