Trollbeads Arm Candy

Hello My Lovelies, 

I hope you are all doing well? Today I have for your some gorgeous personalised arm candy by Trollbeads. Personalisation in any brand is something I absolutely adore, I mean who doesn't like something that has a special meaning or memory held to it. Trollbeads are a brand I have know for many years and I absolutely love their concept of collecting a bracelet that fits your personal style, memories and personality. I was recently contacted by the lovely Trollbeads team on choosing a bracelet and selection of beads for me to review over on my blog. I was so excited as I have hit a lot of milestones this year and I wanted to find the perfect beads to match those memories and just overall personal traits.  

Trollbeads are an exquisite set of interchangeable jewellery pieces which let you create your own look. At the heart of the collection are the beads themselves. Each piece in the Trollbeads collection has its own little history, taking its inspiration from mythology, astrology, fairy tales, fauna, flora, cultural diversity and the familiar things of everyday living. 

I decided to give the leather style bracelet a try because I already have a collection of classic silver bracelets from various other brands and I wanted to be a little different and give something new a try. I absolutely love my silver bracelets but I adore this leather style and how it could be worn on a more everyday basis alongside and array of different outfit looks. This particular bracelet is available in a variety of different shades but I decided to go for a classic neutral colour so I could wear it with pretty much anything. On the wrist the bracelet feels completely secure and comfortable so you can wear it for hours with ease. 

Browsing through the website and deciding which beads I wanted to add to my bracelet was the hardest task ever. You wouldn't imagine it to be but I wanted to make sure I chose the right beads to mark the milestones I have achieved this year and essentially I wanted it to look perfect. After a few days of deliberating (yes you read that right) I decided on the above selection. The first bead I chose was Graduation; I included this bead on a whim because it was actually sold out on the website. To me this bead holds such a huge meaning and alongside my degree and dissertation marks my university journey the past 3 years. If you follow me on various platforms of my social media then you will know I just completed my final year at university and graduated in July with a BA (Hons) Business Management degree. This bead is absolutely gorgeous and a great size with lots of detail. It is three sided with a graduation cap, scroll and book. I just love that it is something I can look down at to remind me that Yes I did it! The second bead I chose was the Letter Bead S; I think this bead is quite explanatory considering my name is Sophia which starts with an S. I think this was just a fun personal bead to include to mark that this is my bracelet. The bead itself also has such beautiful detailing. The third bead I chose was the Rosary; when I saw this bead I instantly fell in love because the detailing is just stunning with the ten small beads with the dangling crucifix. Religion is something I rarely speak about on my blog but I felt the need to add this to my bracelet because I am Roman Catholic and sometimes just looking at a cross when your feeling defeated can just uplift your spirits. The fourth bead I chose was Drops of Delight; when I saw this bead it instantly reminded me of something from a fairy tale with the beautiful flacon silver and rose quartz. I love how it sits differently to the other beads and hangs slightly off the just looks so graceful and glistens in the light. As Trollbeads uses genuine natural stone they are completely unique. They vary in colour and have unique inclusions and features that show their great ages and natural beauty. The final bead I chose was the Prince & Princess; I think I chose this for a mixture of reasons, I mean look how adorable this little tiara is and the detailing is beautiful. Sometimes I still think I am child and with this bead my inner child shines through...I think there is a little something in all of us who wants to be a Princess or Prince haha. It does come in smaller than the other beads but none-the-less it is still gorgeous and looks amazing on the bracelet. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post!
