Imagine having all of your memories right on your wrist, fingers or neck. Pandora gives you an opportunity to take your memories and the love of your family with you wherever you go. The sleekness of their jewellery pieces is appealing and stands out in any arm party.
The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson is a woman I have admired since I was a child. Her red hair was fascinating to me and the fact that she was a real princess was even more fascinating. Sarah’s last visit to Toronto was 20 years prior and many of her friends and fans were present to welcome her back.
The high tea reception with the Duchess was a treat. While sipping on tea and eating scones, jam and clotted cream, we listened to the purposeful work Pandora is doing to join women together through the love for jewellery. The Duchess asked about the progress of women in Canada and was impressed with the level of women’s involved in government, boards and in the community.
Her story is a whirlwind of ups and downs, struggle and triumph but some way or the other she was able to end up in the midst of a place called happiness. Here is an uncommon fact about the Duchess, though divorced, she and her form husband Prince Andrew live together with their lovely daughters. Not typical but it works for them and is a hint to her willingness to put her family first.
The Duchess spoke about the horrific conditions in some of the children’s orphanages in Serra Leone, the high level of childhood cancer in Poland. Her lecture was followed by a question and answer period hosted by Bloomberg journalist and TV host Danielle Bochove.
I didn’t want the evening to end. I didn’t want the Duchess to leave but she had to catch a flight that night back to the UK. It is comforting to know that the Duchess will be leaving a piece of herself in Toronto by introducing her dessert teas in the Canadian market with proceeds going to the women of the Congo.
Pairing both Pandora and the Duchess was an excellent idea because it was the perfect fairytale princess with a brand that presents itself as royalty. Pandora was gracious enough to provide some giveaways to the women in attendance and guess what, I won. But I want you to win too.
