Today’s post sees the next instalment of my monthly Pandora haul post, wherein I share what I added to my collection last month and encourage you to share yours! :) I’ve just accepted that this is a post that gets later and later each month – especially when there is a LOT of Pandora news to blog about!
My haul for July mainly consists of my choices for the UK’s leather bracelet promo – my first bracelet promotion, ever, in fact! :)
So, first up is my only non-promo purchase: the gorgeous Cherry Blossom clip, which I have loved ever since it first came out in Spring 2013. I have never had a bracelet on which I could use it, however, until now – I’ve added it to my Pandora Rose bracelet alongside the similar-looking Darling Daisy clip.
My Rose bracelet has now acquired quite a girly look, which is different to what I originally intended for this bracelet but I like it! I took apart another design to add some more charms to it, including the adorable Bicycle and Love Note charms. I’ll be adding more Pandora Rose pieces to it when the collection sees its official debut in October.
However, my biggest purchases were to make up the £85 spend I needed to get a double leather bracelet! I took this picture on the day of the promo – I got the double purple leather free, and I purchased the teal and white faceted muranos, plus the little Camera charm.
With the charms, I’ve created a kind of summery teal and white colour scheme along with a travel theme – for a bit of a twist and added contrast, I’ve added to them the darker oxidised bracelet. I really like the contrast between the bright colour of the faceted muranos and the oxidised chain. I intend on getting another set of white and teal muranos, making four muranos in total. This bracelet works well with one of my new Essie nail polishes, which are nice and bright for summer!
In contrast to the Pandora Rose bracelet, my new teal oxi theme is not very girly at all (or at least, I don’t think so!). It’s more of a fun little bracelet, although it’s still in its infancy. I absolutely adore the vibrancy of the teal faceted murano – it’s one of my favourites, so it’s great that I’ve finally found a way to use it in my collection. :D
I’m happy with the starts to both of these bracelets, and I guess they’ll be what I’m working on for the moment – the Pandora Rose bracelet especially! My Pandora bracelet collection has now hit double-figures, however – this is a shot I took of it (before I rearranged the Pandora Rose bracelet):
I really don’t know how that happens. :S
So, what have you been buying lately? What designs are you working on? How big is your collection? Please feel free to share!
