This post was in no way sponsored by Pandora. Goodie bag items were received as a gift for attending a ticketed event. Tickets for the Pandora Galentine’s event were paid for by the attendees.
No matter what your relationship status, I’m a firm believer of always celebrating your loved ones, whether they be your Valentine or Galentine.
It was during my morning Facebook scroll a couple of weeks ago the Pandora Galentine’s event popped up on my timeline – immediately I knew it was something myself and best gal pal Laura would be interested in. So we bought our tickets online and began to decide what it was we would undoubtedly treat ourselves to.
Arriving at the Pandora store in Newcastle’s intu Eldon Square we were warmly welcomed by staff and surrounded by an immediate buzz in the atmosphere. The music in-store was perfectly setting the tone for a cheerful celebration.
When not serving eager customers (and a few last minute Valentine buys – oops!) staff were circulating with a very delightful fizz for us to sip on – Krispy Kreme doughnuts and macaroons were also available for our delight while we scoped the shop taking in both new and classic Pandora collections.
At the back of the store you could take the opportunity to have a pamper and get your make-up done, a perk that was extremely popular as there was always someone getting painted. After perusing the collections and coming up with our top choices Laura and I headed for the queue. Laura deciding on the Hearts of Love delicate open ring – not the item she went in with the intention of buying, but we’ve all done that! For myself I decided on a pair of classic Lunar studs. You can’t beat classic.
Just before we left to continue our evening with a Galentine’s dinner, we were given our eagerly anticipated Pandora Galentine’s goodie bag. I mean who doesn’t love a goodie bag? Here’s a peek at what it contained:
A girl can never have too many bags, especially tote bags! (Seriously, I’m thinking of doing a post dedicated to all my different totes, it’s hilarious) This Pandora branded #LOVED tote is made of strong fabric and is a good size with side panels to make sure you can get all your treat yo self treats in there. The Pandora branded lined notebook is perfect for those lists I’m always making and losing on scraps of paper! Pamper time is imminent with a new Nails Inc nail varnish, whilst allowing a bit of time to indulge on a few Lindt milk chocolates. If that didn’t satisfy a sweet tooth enough, they even popped in an individually boxed Krispy Kreme Original Glazed doughnut. I mean, do they know how to win a girl over or what?!
How did you spend Valentine’s and Galentine’s? Or do you avoid it in all commercial senses? Let me know in the comments!
