Trollbeads LE Pastel Agates Review


A few weeks ago, the Trollbeads limited edition Pastel Agates were released out of nowhere – first at Danish retailers and then making an appearance at select UK stores.  Even though I was on vacation, I knew these would disappear soon and ordered a set from Perlen where they quickly sold out.  These never did […]

Pandora Essence Zodiacs Preview


I first introduced the new Pandora Essence Zodiacs a couple months ago, I’m excited to present a full preview of these upcoming beads!  So far, it seems like the Pandora Essence Collection has been hit or miss for fans with the top complaint being that it’s incompatible with the traditional Pandora bracelet and charms.  I […]

Happy Easter with Pandora, Ohm Beads, & Trollbeads


Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating this holiday!  I’m quite envious that Europe observes Easter with a long holiday, whereas we don’t even get an extra day off.  When I was a kid, I would decorate eggs and participate in the fun Easter egg hunt, but as I’ve gotten older, I generally enjoy Easter […]

We just got home from the exciting Pandora Unforgettable Cruise, and boy was it exciting!  This year, we sailed from Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida which is a bit further away than Port Canaveral, our starting point last year.  Since I didn’t realize that fact until too late, we made it to the ship barely […]
