Okay ladies, lets face it, Pandora are over priced and overrated. I get the emotional attachment to charms, but honestly… pandora are just beads with a rather horrifying mark up. Here in Australia they pretty much made their own market and had no real competitors for SOOOOO long.

I highly recommend you all expand your horizons, save yourself (and your husbands) a considerable amount of money, and indulge in a MUCH more fabulous, meaningful range! Alex and Ani, my new personal addiction, have finally brought their range of eco-conscious jewellery and accessories, created to positively empower and connect humanity, to Australia.

Love, Love, Love

Symbols, birth stones and numerology throughout history have held meanings, personally relevant to individuals. Here are some of my personal favourites, produced by Alex and Ani to empower, inspire and protect the wearer.



One of the oldest mystical symbols in the world, the Ouroboros signifies the great circle of life, representing infinity and the cyclical nature of the universe. Believed to depict the great alchemical union of masculine and feminine energy, it holds the spark of creation itself.



In Old English, “godspeed” was the word one said to bless someone embarking on a journey. The expression bestows good fortune and safety, with God’s grace. Magically sincere, godspeed is the desire to have God’s protection alongside your path.



Rising from its ashes, the Phoenix is an emblem of immortality. Reflecting transformation, the mythical firebird contains the breath of life and is fearless as it bursts into flames. Consider the magical power of the Phoenix as you ignite the passion in your soul and reveal your true essence.
