Pandora Mother's Day Jewellery Collection


This Sunday is Mother's Day as I'm sure you're all aware, therefore in order to celebrate Pandora is giving you the chance to win a charm from the new Pandora Mother's Day Jewellery Collection as seen above. This collection is so beautiful; I only wish I could treat my mum to everything from it as she deserves something just as special as she is. In order for you to enter and stand a chance at winning one of the charms from the collection all you have to do is write in the comments below the sweetest thing that you have ever done for your mother. The competition will close on Friday 28th March and the lucky winner will be announced on Sunday 30th March; you've only a few days to enter so don't forget to leave a comment below.

This year has been the first real year where roles between me and my mum were reversed. I had to take care of my mum instead of it being the other way around. We of course always look out for each other and are very close but up until now it's always been my mum who is the strong one if that makes sense. I'm lucky in that in the past my mum has been healthy and has never been poorly, however in late 2012 she started to develop a bad shoulder which affected her doing lots of things, particularly driving which was vital for her line of work. I was away at university for the majority of the time however when I came back I knew it wouldn't be long until she had to have an operation. 


Since before the operation and after I have being caring for my mum a lot more than I would of had to in usual every day circumstances. Simple trivial things such as hovering up, loading the dishwasher, cooking and driving her to the doctors to more important things like helping her to dress and to wash her hair. Having her arm in a sling posed quite an issue when she wanted to put on her big heavy jumpers let me tell you! It's a bit of an odd one to be writing this on here as I never really talk about home much on my blog. Yet I guess that this is an appropriate post to mention it on and of course they are all nice things to do, however they're also very natural things for me to do too; I love my mum and would do anything for her. This year really showed me what it was like to have somebody I care about so much go through something a little bit out of the ordinary. It was scary saying good bye to her at the hospital before she went under for her operation, I knew she would be OK and that she was in good hands but I have to say it's not a feeling that I want to have to have again in a very long time.


This Mother's Day I will be treating my Mum extra special, she means so much to me and has had a bit of a bad start to the year. Hopefully she will be feeling better soon and will be back to how she was before, I'm sure some chocolate and flowers will cheer her up on Sunday. So there we have it, perhaps not exactly the sweetest thing I have ever done for my mum but overall maybe the kindest and most caring.

Please remember to leave a comment below stating the sweetest thing you have done for your mum if you wish to enter the competition. I'm not being sponsored in any way for this post for clarification, I was merely contacted about it earlier on today and thought that some of you would like the opportunity to enter it, who can say no to Pandora?

Please note that this competition is now closed.

The competition will close on Friday 28th March and the lucky winner will be announced on Sunday 30th March. Find your nearest Pandora store here. I won't be selecting the winner as that will be down to Pandora, I'm just a friendly messenger!

  3. it's so lovely of you to be so dedicated to your mum. :)

    my mum is really organised and together and works really hard. when an illness struck her in early 2013, she often became really run down. when she finally got an appointment in a specialist hospital in dublin (5 hours away), she left me in charge of my younger brother as my dad had to drive her. she loves being in a really clean house and i knew it would help her feel better, so while she was away i found her favourite movie on netflix, spring cleaned the whole house, warmed pyjamas by the fire and made sure there was tea and snacks for when she got in, as well as fresh bedding. i made sure that she felt pampered & better, thats probably the sweetest thing i've done for her. :)

  5. My mom does a lot for me and even though we don't always get along, we did spend time doing crafts together.

    I'm sure she would love a new bracelet! xx

  6. What a beautiful collection and amazing opportunity. Well my nan is more like my mum. I've lived with her all my life and she has taken care of me like I was her own, she's sacrificed a lot for me. I wouldn't say I know of one sweet thing I've done for her besides put her on a high pedestal, send her on holiday, decorate the house for her, whatever she needs if I'm able to do it, I will. xo

  7. Awwe, poor mom! Sounds like she's had a rough year, but I bet she's so thankful to have you around to care for her and love her like only a daughter can ;)

    I think the nicest thing I've done for my mom is just simple stuff...whenever I'm over I make sure to clean up after myself and my brothers (or rather put them to work too). I like to give my mom a chance to go rest by herself or sometimes I'll make her a little spa package and make sure she has a quiet house so she can go take an extra long bath and not worry about whether or not things will get down. Making Dinner for the family is something I like to do too and I know is a huge load off her shoulders :)

    I love her so!

  8. My mum has always wanted a Pandora bracelet and I would love to be able to give her the opportunity to own one. I have a Pandora ring and she always admires it, so to be able to give her something back for raising me would be amazing. I know normally we don't really make a huge deal of Mother's Day because I am normally working, but this year I booked it off work and it would be amazing to make her day extra special with a Pandora gift too!
    Thanks for the competition! xx

  9. Aw what a wonderful giveaway.

    I don't get to see my Mam very often as she is 300 miles away and a few months ago, I hadn't seen her for nearly a year, I decided to just turn up at home and surprise her, the day before I sent flowers saying "see you soon". My sister who lives a few doors up from my parents met me at the train station the following morning, knowing my mum was out for the day, we got home, did all the housework and when she collected my dad in the evening, he told her he fancied going out for dinner, so I had arranged for all my siblings and their children to all meet at her favourite place and we had a family dinner together, around a table for the first time in about 10 years, not to mention the first time she has had all the gradnkids in one place too. I think it made her day!

  10. What a fantastic prize!!! I always try and bring my mum little gifts every time I see her, whether its a pound of mince, flowers or a cake I've baked, as I know she knows I've been thinking about her :-)

  11. Love this competition! My mom has always loved Pandora because of the idea of adding memories on a bracelet.
    Because of my age, i cannot really afford expensive things so i just give to her simple things but, in the future, i would like to take her to a nice holiday everyplace she wants to go.

    Have a nice day!

  13. Awww, this are all so pretty.
    In 2004, I nearlly lost my mum to a horrible disease and I felt useless, but coming on 10 years later she made it! The heartache you get from such a close call, make you realize how much someone means to you and how important every day really is with them. I could of grown up without my mum, who is also my best friend. Every chance I get, I show my mum just how much I love her. I wouldn't be me without her. She deserves so much, even though I can only give her so little. I love telling people how much she means to me even when everyone has different feelings on things. I love Pandora, such pretty bracelets :)

  14. One day mum was getting restless, so I decided to spend my pocket money on her and take her for a meal, I took her to a restaurant called Mii U, which is basically a Wagamamas and with a oriental supermarket next door. I treated her with a full three course meal, and afterwards took her to look at the oriental supermarket, where I bought some jasmine tea, and some incense, when we got home I made her the jasmine tea and lit up the incense, and we watched good but bad cheesy girly chick flicks. We now do this ever so often.

    I really want to give my mum something special, something that lasts.

    Thank you!!

  15. The most cutest thing I have ever done for my mummy is I made her a frappe because they are her favorite and then I went into town on my own with my own money and bought her some really nice flowers and her favourite chocolates. This wasnt for her birthday or for mothers day, it was because I love my mum and she is the best mum in the world. Our family has been through a really rough time recently with my granny and grandad both died in a car crash the day before there 60 wedding annaversarie. It broke us all they were like the head of the family, i guess it just proves that the people close to you dont last forever so we have to make the most of them while they are here and try and spoil them with things like this

  16. I think the cute at thing I do for my mum is make her home made cards as she says there's nothing more caring and heart warming. I love my mum so much I wish I could do more for her but I'm only a student. She deserves to be treated like a queen because that's what she is to me.

  17. Last year, i made paper rose and card and i got gift voucher and wrapped it around and decorated the wrapping. Because my mum loves my creativity more than anything. Then fpr dinner i baked a cake, cooked some delicous chickens and vegs. Then turned the lights off and lit the candles on the stairs so its leading her to the romantic dinner. Then.when she came in from outside i sang to her a song about mom in my language. And she cried and we enjoyed the dinner, danced and sang together.

  18. My mum is the sweetest person ever. When ever any one needs advice, help, or comfort they go to my mam. She works 40hours a Monday-friday at a school helping vulnerable children, not only to progress their education, but also in supporting them emotionally. Then she works 30hours Saturday-sunday as a support worker helping the elderly, young adults, and people with mental or physical disabilities. After working a 70hour week, she still has time for her family. She never says no, and will help everyone and anyone, no matter what they need.
    There have been a few family weddings this year, and my mam always does the invitations, however this is extremely difficult when you work a 70hour week. However we have got into a routine when it comes to things like this. The last batch of invitations we did, I hand-tied 200 tiny ribbons and did the simple, time-consuming things to lighten the load for her. I know it's not much but in our family we have a few sayings, one of which is 'it's the thought that counts', So even if I don't win this competition, I know that she will still appreciate the effort and the acknowledgement of all her hard work. So if you read this mum, thankyou and I love and appreciate you soooooo much! x
