Celebrating Friendship with PANDORA ESSENCE

Coming from a thousand miles away and finding a home away from home is really incredible. It is almost 10 years that I live in England and it was the best decision I could ever have made… I had to be ready to “reconstruct” my life, create some roots even if I was already grown up, be completely open about meeting new people, new things and new cultures. May I tell you, it is a great thing. When you are open, no judgments, no past behind and blockages you get to know more yourself and what you like and dislike. On the way to new discoveries I’ve learned a lot! Firstly that travelling is always a good way of starting over, not that I had a particular reason to leave as I love my golden friends and I am the most attached to my family and it will always come first, all I wanted was a fresh experience, a new language and a couple of other amazing things I would bring back in my baggage. I actually never thought I would stay, it was all temporary, it just happened! Secondly, you realise that after a while “moving away” it is not all a dream but more of a roller-coaster with bad and good moments and that is what life is… And even though, these experiences are treasure and you learn that you can go so much further!

Fast forward to the present day, and it has been ten years that I have lived away from home! A decade is a long time and it was only possible because of all the special moments and people that passed through my life. To celebrate the special women that have supported me on my journey, I’ve partnered up with PANDORA for their new ESSENCE collection, which is all about appreciating the inner values of those I am closest to.

Now, let me introduce you to two people who are very important to me: Emma and Maria. They have made my new life that little bit easier and far more enjoyable. Although I know I am living away from home, they provide me with the love and support I would receive from my own family. They are my home away from home, the one’s that I choose to eat every Sunday Roast with, spend special holidays with. They keep me company during both memorable and casual days. They are part of my British family, as we are not only friends but sisters-in-law too! I couldn’t feel more blessed to have them in my life, as they have welcomed me into their family with open arms.

I am here cherishing life and the charms you will find in the bracelet I am wearing are friendship, loyalty, wisdom, passion, compassion and balance! Aren’t they just a great reflection of everything I talked about?

Thank you PANDORA for giving me a reason to celebrate all these incredible moments! It has been an amazing journey and I can’t wait to collect more charms aka values on the way!
