Two weeks ago I spent an evening out with Pandora at their Wishing Tree event, alongside fellow blogger May from Red Velvet London and Hanh from Hanhabelle. Apart from honing my origami skills (that pesky jasmine flower has been an unattainable origami goal of mine until the helpfulness of the Pandora team rectified the situation), the evening was all about making wishes. We were asked to write down our wishes for 2015 on a piece of paper, fold it into the shape of a flower and add it to the wishing tree. That got me thinking about all the things I want to receive and achieve in 2015. I want to travel. I want to see, experience, photograph and, of course blog, all the amazing destinations across the world. I want to stay creative, and inspired. As my final year at art school is catching up with me I need to keep things fresh and inventive for my assessments, my upcoming job and have enough left over for the blog. But the message I wrote down for the wishing tree, was the one I felt was the most important form be both for 2015 and for years to come: it was wishing health and happiness to all of my family. These are the people you might have disagreements with during the best of times, but they are also the ones who will give you help and support during the worst.
So with this in mind, I walked away thinking about how to put a big smile on the faces of the ladies in my family for 8th of March (Women’s Day) and 10th of March (UK Mother’s Day). And Pandora’s handy gift selection is at top of my gift ideas list.
