Celebrating Halloween with arm candy


Every year I’m always incredibly enthusiastic for Halloween and I spent a good majority of October featuring scary themed charms and bracelets.  Today is Trick o’ Treat night and even though it’s pouring cats and dogs outside here, I am still excited for All Hallows’ Eve.  It’s been quite some time since Pandora has released any […]
