Another day at sea and the Pandora team organized another pair of events for us ladies. We started out with the “Pandora Find Your Personal Style” session which was a talk given by celebrity stylist Janette Ewen. I enjoyed this event a lot as Janette was a great speaker and gave some very useful advice and recommendations on finding your individual style, decorating around the home, and rebooting your attitude and outlook on life. I think I’ll definitely follow some of her tips when I get back to Seattle!
The second event was the return of the “How to Tie a Knot” workshop that was held on last year’s cruise. As we walked in we were handed a packet containing two cloth lariats as well as the 100mm leather cord, a nice surprise! It was also a slightly different format this time around; the Pandora team spent the first 30 minutes walking us through two simple necklace and bracelet designs that we could play around with using our own charms.
The later part of the hour was used to run a mini-contest where we had some time to create a unique lariat/cord creation of our own that had a story behind it. Pandora staff judged the creations and picked six winning designs to receive a prize. A special prize was also given to one of the six that also had the best accompanying story. The six lucky ladies all received a great looking Pandora passport holder and luggage set that I have never seen before, and the story winner also got a Pandora-branded canvas bag.
The “How to Tie a Knot” session was more fun this year and felt much more interactive – having prizes at the end definitely didn’t hurt :). One change was that we didn’t get any raffle tickets for attending the events like we did last year, and it seems like they haven’t been giving away as many prizes throughout the cruise. I hope it means that tomorrow’s final day events will have lots of giveaways!
