Good morning babes! Are you already excited about the weekend starting in a few hours? I am absolutely sure you are! Nevertheless, I hope to have your attention for todays special post. If you coincidentally came over my social media platforms yesterday you already got a sneak peek on what I am going to tell and show you right now.

Let’s start from the very beginning for all those who have not noticed yesterdays snaps on facebook and instagram (if you count yourself to these people make sure to catch up on it and follow my facebook here and instagram here!). Yesterday I had the honor to attend a flying breakfast with the lovely Pandora team as well as a handful of other swiss bloggers at the “Schminkbar” in Zurich where we got spoiled with delicious mango lassis, fresh berry smoothies, crispy croissants etc. etc. Basically everything the heart desires.  Even a quick manicure was done by the lovely Schminkbar staffers – To be honest, it was my first mani ever. Yay! – I went for a hot pink color matching with my pink Saint Laurent heels (Outfit post comes later by the way).

From tasty food and manis to the actual theme of this post: the Essence Collection by Pandora! At first I must admit that I have never been a charms person. Even since they became super duper trendy a few years ago I never counted myself to the charm lovers. I don’t know why, I just never found a really strong connection to them. But yesterday when I got introduced to the Pandora Essence Collection and its background it suddenly made “click”. You may know these moments when you completely change your mind about a thing in a flash – it was one of them. The collection consists of 24 symbolic charms while each one stands for one value. All 24 values are evaluated by 7500 different women from all over the world to cover all the values of women in every culture or age. Passion, freedom, health or peace are just a few of them (Take a closer look on the picture above and you will spot some more). Thanks to these individual meanings of every single charm, you are able to create a bracelet which truly expresses who you are. Luckily I had the chance to put together my very own bracelet and my choice fell on the faith, honesty and strength charms which are three values that accompany me in my life since I can think!

Faith does not only stand for religion rather for faith in myself, faith in my skills, faith in people surrounding me and faith in generally everything I do. In my opinion faith is pretty similar to hope but it is a much stronger word with so much more power. Having faith in what I do serves me the energy to always continue and always improve to do it even better. Without doubt this charm was my first choice

Strength stands for willpower, for standing up whenever I fall and for standing tall for what I do and who I am. I had to learn to be strong in the past couple of years, especially when I started with the blog and everyone was like “oh, she think she’s something better now” or “ok, she must be so egocentric to open a website about herself”. Even if I lost some (allegedly) close people through the decision to start with the blog, I can stand over it now and I am proud with what I reached. At least I know who are my real friends now – those who are still around me and still supporting me!

Honesty is a characteristic I call one of the most important in so many parts of life. In work as well as in friendships or relationships! I seriously can’t handle with people who are constantly hiding the truth and I simply can’t understand the reasons for it. Being honest turns out to make life so much easier. Speak your mind and you will come much much further as when you talk behind someones back. Lying, whitewashing will stuck someone in place sooner or later. Therefor honesty is a value that shall always accompany me.

So ladies, I hope you got a well insight into the Pandora Essence Collection through this post! If I awoke somebodies interest, the whole collection is available in stores as well as online. You can find more informations or start to create your own bracelet that truly expresses yourself here!
