Happy Release Day to OHM Beads! Today, their January 2021 Release launched. This release has 3 collections: OHM Chinese New Year, OHM Beauty and OHM Rawr. If you would like to see a detailed look at the pieces in this release, I do have a Youtube video sharing closeups in motion:
In today’s blog post, I am sharing how I styled my OHM Rawr beads with an outfit of the day! I also share two other bracelet designs using the beads from the OHM Chinese New Year Collection and the OHM Beauty Collection.
This blog post is also co-hosted by the sweet Alice Haenim. When I was taking photos for this blog, she came right over and wanted me to pick her up. She was quite curious about what I was up to!
If you would like to know more about her (she is a rescue dog from Korea) and hear her adoption story, check out my @fashionstoryteller IGTV video or my pet account, @pawfectella.
So, if you ready for today’s blog post…Make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea (I’m enjoying some Buddha’s Blend from DAVIDsTEA) and let’s get started!

OHM Rawr, OHM Beauty and OHM CNY collections were gifted to me by OHM Beads. OHM Bird Cage was sent to review.
Outfit Styling with the OHM Rawr Collection
I love the glass beads in the OHM Rawr collection. The earthy, stone-like colours look so cool paired with the sterling silver beads. The names of the three glass beads are: OHM Gondwana, OHM Rodinia and OHM Pangaea.
As soon as I saw these glass beads, I couldn’t wait to pair them with my dress from American Eagle. It is called the Soft and Sexy Plush Tunic Dress. The tunic dress and colours of the OHM glass beads match so well together! This tunic dress is a few seasons old, but you can find a similar version HERE. I actually am tempted to purchase this tunic dress too.
I love the Soft and Sexy Plush line from American Eagle, especially during the autumn and winter seasons. They are made of 74% Viscose and 21% Polyester. They are soft to the touch. I have a few pieces from the collection and each one is cozy and comfortable. I find them especially perfect if you work from home or for a casual weekend!
I also love that the pieces in the Soft and Sexy Plush line are basic wardrobe staples, making them great for layering with a faux leather jacket, favourite sweater/cardigan, scarf or vest!
To accessorize my tunic dress, I decided to add a statement necklace. I chose the OHM Bird Cage. This pendant is unique. It also has a “locket-like” quality where you have the option of adding something special inside of it. The door opens and it has a little lock to keep it closed. I chose to wear it with nothing inside and without the lock.
If you would like to hear more about the OHM Bird Cage, Nichol of @myprettycharmedlife and I did an Instagram Live video on it, as well as a few other BBQ beads. You can watch it HERE.
Also, to accessorize (and stay cozy), I added my La Vie En Rose Knitted Knee-High Socks in Grey. I love the cute pom-pom details! Do you prefer cozy socks or slippers? I love both!
Here is a close up of my OHM Plain Bangle with pieces from the OHM Beauty Collection. Each bead in the OHM Beauty Collection comes inside its own magenta pink box. I love this pop of colour! As mentioned in my Youtube video, I would love OHM Beads to come out with a magenta pink (or rose pink) OHM Whip Bracelet!
Not worn, but also released today is the OHM Chinese New Year collection! I had so much fun styling these new pieces onto my Lucky Red OHM Whip Bracelet. I am excited to share another outfit of the day, styling this bracelet. Stay tuned!
And that concludes today’s blog post! Do you have any favourite pieces from this release? If so, how would you style them?
Have a wonderful rest of your week every one!
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time. I hope this blog post adds a smile to your day!

Sharing a life update and a heartfelt thank you to this community for getting me through this heartbreaking time.@fashionstoryteller
It’s so crazy to me that my bead collaboration #OHMDONTGIVEUP with @ohmbeads is re-releasing on November 25th…. literally at a time where I need to hear the message, “Don’t Give Up” so badly.
In this video, I talk about that, share video memories of @pawfectella and also talk about what happened. ????✨ I also share my new bracelet design featuring the Poodle bead and two beads from @ohminaustralia.

The 2020 Limited Edition Stars Charm
It’s November 20th! Today we celebrate the relaunch of the Stars charm! The original style number of this vintage charm was 790348 and was originally known as the Seeing Stars charm. It was made in both a 14 ct. gold charm, as well as a sterling silver version. The 20th Anniversary Stars charm is done in sterling silver. The Pandora 20 hallmark is displayed on the front of the charm, near the far left corner.
Prices from $35 USD and $40 CAD.
Each 2020 Stars charm comes with a certificate, confirming its authenticity.
The 2020 Limited Edition Stars Charm is available globally on Pandora’s estore and in selected Pandora stores. Very limited numbers are available, so it’s best to purchase today, November 20th, 2020…if its not already sold out!
This charm has to be in my top three favourites of the 20th Anniversary charms! This charm speaks to my heart, as it reminds me of a special Eskimo Proverb:
“Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.”
I have heard this proverb before and it has always made my heart smile. It has only been a few days since my dear miniature poodle Ella, passed away. This charm could not have been released at a better time for me. It will serve as a reminder that she’s looking down on me now, shining brightly. I would love to get two of these charms, if I am lucky. I want to add one to my “PawfectElla” themed Pandora Bracelet, inspired by her. I would also like to add it to my Pandora 20 themed bracelet too.
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 the Inspirational Stars Dangle Charm. I have them on my When You Wish Upon A Star Pandora Bracelet:
Each charm on this bracelet represents going after your dreams and making the seemingly impossible, possible. It is also inspired by wonderful memories of visiting Disneyland.
My Story behind the Inspirational Stars Dangle Charm:
I have created a Youtube video to more personally tell you the story behind this charm! You can watch it HERE or down below:
The The Inspirational Stars Dangle Charm is a sterling silver dangle charm with shimmering blue enamel, as well as sparking cubic zirconia stars and bale detailing. On the back of the charm, it reads: Dream it, Wish It, Do it with a small star on the top. This charm is inspired by the night sky.
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 excited to share exclusive Pandora 20 content and moments with you, for the month of December! I cannot believe that the year is coming to an end! Pandora will be providing me with 3 of the 12 anniversary charms, in this celebration.

Yesterday (June 28th, 2020), we celebrated Ella’s “Gotcha Day”. I had never heard of a “Gotcha Day” before adopting Ella. A “Gotcha Day” is like a birthday, however it is celebrated on the day you brought your furry friend home.
Ella’s “Gotcha Day” was so fun! I made sure the day was extra special for her. We have Ella some special new treats and bones! And I also had a fun virtual Tea “PAWty” for her. I filmed the Tea “PAWty” for my #TeaTimeTuesday IGTV series. If you would like to join in on the celebrations, you can watch the video HERE or down below:
Have you heard of a “Gotcha Day” before? I think it is such a cute idea!
I had so much fun enjoying tea and treats with Ella and Georgina. I hope you did too! xo
Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and well, during this time. It is summer time here in Canada and I have been enjoying as much time outdoors, as possible! This includes lots of my favourite summer activities, such as: hiking mountains, exploring outdoor gardens, having picnics and patio dining with Ella. I have also had too many delicious iced teas and iced matcha to count! What are your favourite summer activities?
In today’s blog post, I am sharing a look at Ogerbeads‘ newest Spring/Summer release: The Blossom Collection. This collection features 10 new Murano glass beads and 2 silver beads. This collection was delayed due to COVID-19, but I am so happy it will be officially launching today, Friday July 10th at 12:00 Amsterdam Time (6:00 AM EST).
So, if you are ready to see the beautiful new beads from Ogerbeads, make sure to grab a delicious cup of iced tea and let’s get started!
A special thank you to Ogerbeads for letting me use their official stock photos for this blog post.
#BlackLivesMatter | To learn more, click HERE.
The Blossom Collection features 6 vibrantly coloured floral glass beads and 4 pastel glass beads.
The Collection Overview:
A Closer Look:
The Pixiedust Fragment Beads:
I love these new pixie dust fragment beads! I love pastel and neutral colours, so I instantly gravitated towards these beads. They are feminine and remind me of the spring time. They look magical with that touch of golden sparkle.
They are also very elegant and I can see myself dressing them up for a romantic evening or spring/summer wedding.
The Blossom Beads:
The Blossom Beads offer a refreshing pop of colour and make me think of running in a field of flowers or my mother’s garden back home! I can picture myself wearing these with one of my favourite white blouses or dresses.
I love the swirling white details and lifted bubble accents. They really evoke that “feeling” a summer breeze.
The Silver Beads of Spring and Summer:
The Tree of Love
The Tree of Love looks beautiful. It has heart shaped leaves and tree roots, a lovely symbol of connection and family. It reads: “Tree of Love” along the sides of the bead. I am looking forward to seeing this bead in-person! Love takes root and grows in so many amazing ways, I love that this bead is a reflection of that!
The Bee Hive:
The Bee Hive bead is beautifully detailed! I love the floral and vine accents going over the bee hive. There are a few bees with their wings spread out, buzzing about their home…such a sweet detail! I am curious to see the size of this bead, in-person. I am also intrigued by the doorway, into the hive…is it oxidized or can you see inside the bead? I cannot wait to find out!
And that concludes a look at the new Ogerbeads collection releasing today! What do you think of this new collection? Do you have any favourites? Please let me know down below!
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this outbreak. I hope this blog post adds some happiness into your day. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone.

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 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
Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and doing well, during this time. <3
In today’s blog post (and in honour of #TeaTimeTuesday), I am sharing my recent DAVIDsTEA* haul order (with the help of Ella the Mini Poodle). I needed to stock up on some favourites, but also wanted to try out some new teas too!!!
*As some of you know, I am a huge DAVIDsTEA fan and this past year, I had the amazing opportunity to become a DAVIDsTEA Affiliate. Some of the links, in this blog post will be affiliated links.
So, if you are ready: make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea and let’s get started!!!
The Matcha Teas:
I ordered three matcha teas from DAVIDsTEA. I am a huge matcha lover and enjoy it daily! It provides wonderful health benefits (check out my IGTV video to learn more), but also tastes soo so delicious too!
One of the teas I had to stock up on is Raspberry Matcha. You might remember seeing me review and talk about it on my IGTV videos, as well as my last DAVIDsTEA Youtube video.
On IGTV, I made it iced and in the YouTube video, I made it hot. I absolutely love both options, but if I were to recommend how to try it first: make it iced! It is a refreshing, satisfying treat!
We’re taking energizing matcha to new heights. Fuel your morning with this fruity and invigorating blend of Matcha Matsu powder, pure cane sugar and the natural flavour of ripe raspberry. Whether you sip it as an iced latte or in your post-workout smoothie, this finely ground flavoured matcha is an easy & delicious way to enjoy the feel-good benefits of green tea.– DAVIDsTEA
This time, I decided to purchase the limited edition tin of the Raspberry Matcha. This is a tea I plan to always have at home, as long as DAVIDsTEA has it in their collection!
You can also shop by gram below:
Another matcha tea I needed to re-stock on was Blueberry Matcha. I was long overdue to order some! Like the Raspberry Matcha, it tastes amazing iced or hot. I also like to add it to my vanilla protein smoothies or my dairy free/gluten free muffins.
Kick your summer vibes up a notch with our sweet and revitalizing Blueberry Matcha. Bursting with freshly picked blueberries, mega-healthy matcha green tea and pure cane sugar, it’s an iced tea latte waiting to happen. The best part? This deliciously fruity blend is packed with all the energizing and metabolism-boosting benefits of matcha for an instant pick-me-up. Good vibes all around.– DAVIDsTEA
I ordered 50 grams of Blueberry Matcha. But that was pretty silly of me! I regret not ordering more since I tend to go through it so quickly.
The last Matcha tea I ordered is one that I have been quite curious to try! I had attempted to order it, on my past DAVIDsTEA order, but it sadly was cancelled. This time, I got lucky and was able to get it!!!
Bubblegum Matcha does not sound like a drink I would enjoy hot, but as an iced matcha or popsicle, it sounded very appealing! Both Linda @LSN2 and I were so curious about it. I decided to order 50grams to try it out.
Blue bubble gum fan? Go retro with this cool novelty fruity matcha. It’s made with a lively base of finely ground green tea powder – hailed for its energizing & detoxifying benefits – plus a sweet hint of natural apple, pineapple & vanilla flavouring. Try it on ice or add to homemade ice cream or popsicles. No matter how you enjoy it, this one-of-a-kind matcha is the nostalgic treat your taste buds have been waiting for.– DAVIDsTEA
It is available by the gram or inside a special limited edition tin:
I have not had a chance to make it yet, but I will keep you all posted! Have you tried it? If so, what do you think?
The Green Tea:
I also ordered another favourite tea of mine: The Countess of Seville. I tend to stock up on this tea quite often! It is a delicious blend of green tea with bergamot and light citrus notes.
This tea is an online exclusive. It does not always show up on DAVIDsTEA’s estore, when it is sold out. If you don’t see it right away, make sure to check back! As I write this blog post, it currently is sold out and it was harder to find! I ended up doing a google search to find a link for it!
There are so many rumours about Earl Grey and his gallivanting ways. We like this one, about a trip he took to Spain. It’s said he fell for the Countess of Seville, a beautiful, dark-haired woman with a penchant for oranges. But did he really woo her with this green tea scented with bergamot, orange oil, cornflowers and orange zest? Either way, it’s a sweet, romantic twist on his original recipe. (MK Kosher).– DAVIDsTEA
The Fruit Infusion Herbal Teas:
The last two teas I ordered were both fruit infusion herbal teas.
A new fruit infusion favourite is Unicorn Dream! I ordered it in my past DAVIDsTEA order and I became addicted! I especially love this tea iced, but it is delicious hot too. This tea is quite sweet and very flavourful. Usually, I am not a fan of teas that have stevia added, but this one is an exception! I also think it would taste delicious as a popsicle too.
Warning: This tea will add some magic to your day. Our caffeine-free fruit infusion is filled with smile-inducing ingredients – from blue butterfly pea, yellow everlasting flowers & pretty pink hibiscus blossoms to unicorn & heart-shaped sprinkles. The result is an enchanting & addictive herbal tea that’s tart and lightly citrusy, with dreamy notes of sweet cotton candy and creamy marshmallow.– DAVIDsTEA
Not only does this tea taste magical, it looks magical! It is very colourful and has adorable unicorn and heart shaped sprinkles, marshmallows and even glitter balls that add sparkles to your tea!!!!
You can watch my reaction to the sparkle in my IGTV video.
Unicorn Dream is also available inside a limited edition tin, but you can also purchase it by the gram, like me:
The last tea I have to share with you is one that is also packed with flavour. It is called Rainbow Lemonade.
I could not wait to make it! I made it iced first and it had a delicious tangy, but sweet vibe to it! I also think it is beautiful to look at!
I also enjoyed it hot and it was delicious too, but honestly…I think this tea is a great iced tea choice for your Summer afternoons!
Get your ice cubes ready – this next-level lemonade iced tea is about to add a mouthpuckering twist of flavour to your summer sipping. Think ripe and juicy citrus, a tropical splash of pineapple, and a sweet hint of raspberry. Tart and refreshing, this caffeine-free tea tastes amazing straight up iced or with a little extra somethin’ somethin’. Get ready to see some rainbows with this one. What makes it great With its fruity twist, this lemon iced tea is a fresh and delicious substitute for the classic store-bought lemonade. For those days when you’ve got company, cool off your guests by brewing up a big pitcher with ice and lemon slices. It’s caffeine-free so the kids can get in on the action too!– DAVIDsTEA
And that concludes this blog post! I hope you enjoyed seeing the selection of teas I ordered.
Have you tried any of these teas? If so, which ones do you love?
