Since Christmas is all about sparkles, I thought I'd take you on a sparkly journey. Well, my Pandora journey to be exact....which started in December 2014 when my friends got me a Pandora bracelet as a gift.
Now who can resist when presented with a packaging that says....
It was, of course, a beautiful gift.....but the aftermath of the spending ain't that pretty though...hehe....unless you're one of those who can control yourself at getting just a couple of charms ^_^
I obviously couldn't leave my Moments Silver Bangle (Star) - Limited Edition (that cost RM338 by the way) bracelet looking all lonely without any of its shiny and glittering friends, right?
So, let me take you on my first (and last!) Pandora journey. My journey began with my first purchase of this Midnight Blue Moon & Star dangly charm (RM253) as the centre piece and two spacers, the Blue Pave Inspiration (RM126 each). P/S: For the uninitiated, spacers are smaller charms that are used to separate the larger charms and add a subtle touch of style or colour to your bracelet.
Next for my work-in-progress bracelet came these two shimmering charms...White Pave Ball (RM295 each) and two decorative clips....Sparkling Leaves (RM253 each) for a touch of sparkle and glitter. P/S: Again for the unfamiliar, clips offer balance and safety to your charms (other than the safety chain) in case your bracelet clasp opens.
Since my purchases were made during the festive period, I got a sweet-looking pink box (to store even more charms!) and some lovely angpow packets (that was in 2015).
Then I added two Blue Nautical Pave Stripe (RM295 each) for a touch of elegance. It's obvious by now that I was going for a blue-coloured theme.
And then the prices went up...as if it weren't already expensive enough. T_T So, I had to pay more for these two charms called Dazzling Daisy (RM329 each) to add even more glitz and glamour to my bracelet. ^o^
Finally, I completed my bracelet with two pieces of Abstract Silver Charm with Faceted Iridescent Blue Murano Glass (RM229 each). Even though I could still fit in a few more charms but the bracelet was beginning to feel a bit heavy so these became my last additions. These befitting final two pieces (I felt) brought out the splash of blue in my blue-themed bracelet.
As much as it was stylish, stunning and exquisite with a touch of elegance, I soon fell out of love with Pandora two years later. I guess it was just an infactuation...haha! ^_*
And so, 13 charms...plus a ring later.....and a few thousand ringgit poorer, my love affair with Pandora was over, just like that >_<
For those who wish to embark on a journey of unforgettable moments...it's going to be unforgettable alright....you can't forget the insane amount of money you paid, or going to pay, for the whole bracelet (tears of happiness initially replaced with short-lived happiness in the end...at least in my case)!!! :D :D
To the gals.....
