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!
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
On April 16th, 2020, Pandora released their Mother’s Day Collection 2020 in Canada and the USA. In today’s blog post, I am going to share the inspiration behind the collection, as well as a look at the new jewellery pieces available!
I hope this blog post adds some fun into your day and that you and your loved ones are safe, healthy and doing well. <3

Our biggest support and greatest inspiration…at Pandora we believe mothers should be shown every day that our love for them is forever.
The Mother’s Day 2020 collection is inspired by two symbols: the infinity symbol and the love knot symbol. The infinity symbol represents eternal love, while the love knot represents connection. What better choices to signify the everlasting bond of love between a mother and child?
Pandora’s VP Creative Directors Francesco Terzo and A. Filippo Ficarelli explored the idea of an infinite and mutual love, begun from the time a child is born. “We thought about the fact that once you become a mother, you are one forever more and so the idea of the infinity symbol linked to a mother was a beautiful sentiment for us.”
These two symbols were used together to create a timeless, yet modern look to the collection.
The Mother’s Day collection release is separated into the following categories: Pandora People Collection, Pandora Timeless Collection and Pandora Colours Collection. Here they are below:
Pandora People Collection
This collection showcases family themed charms to add to your Pandora Moments bracelet! There is also a new Pandora Moments Charm Bracelet, as well! Here it is:
I love that both the charms above and below are two-tone with Pandora Rose and Sterling Silver.
This Sterling Silver, Love You Mum Infinity Heart Charm is one of my favourite choices to surprise your mom with. I love that it is an openwork design and that it incorporates the infinity symbol as a knotted design! It is a perfect example of Pandora’s inspiration for this collection.
Pandora also brings us another sterling silver openwork heart, but exquisitely detailed with floral accents:
I LOVE the Chunky Infinity Knot Chain Necklace. I have officially added it to my Pandora Wishlist and I hope my husband (AKA Snowman) will surprise me with it for an anniversary, holiday or birthday surprise!
This beautiful Pandora Rose ring, features a row of daisy flowers with sparkling cubic zirconia in the centre. I love the colour combination of light pink and magenta pink, set beautifully in Pandora Rose. It is such a romantic ring! And one that is top on my Pandora Ring Wishlist!!!
