To kick-off this exciting season and the PANDORA Festival collection, we’ve teamed up with Leonie. Hanne from Ohhcouture and Michelle Madsen from Takeaim. We caught up with them behind the scenes of our campaign photo shoot to chat about their style and favourite things… in life and with jewellery.
When Leonie isn’t blogging at @ohhcouture from her base in Germany, she is busy planning her next adventure, like Italy this summer for gelato and pizza, and hopefully Bali later. She describes herself as “bubbly, enthusiastic and thoughtful” and her style inspiration comes from many sources: travelling, seeing new places, people, cultures, which is so fabulously evident from her blog posts and pics.
When asked to choose three words that sum up her style, Leonie picked “feminine, trendy and playful.” She loves jewellery because she can express how she feels and mix and match different styles to upgrade her outfits.
When it comes to festivals and travelling, Leonie’s tips are comfortable shoes and her pillow, which she never leaves home without. Festivals for Leonie are about having a good time with friends. An extra piece of trivia: Leonie’s favourite fashion movie is the ‘90s classic, Clueless.
Michelle is a fashion blogger from downtown LA who artfully takes aim at life with fashion, beauty and lifestyle tips, tricks and challenges. You can find her on Instagram @michelletakeaim. The three words she uses to describe herself are “colourful, casual and fun” and her favourite fashion trend of all time is distressed denim.
Michelle loves city life and her perfect summer is all about “adventure, relaxation and plenty of sun” —especially travelling and going to festivals. In fact, what she loves most about festivals is fashion, food and friends. As Michelle is so festival-savvy, she has many great tips to share. She always packs sunglasses, a camera and a cute hat. And never goes anywhere without an iPhone charger. Her top festival tip? “Hydrate, caffeinate!” In fact, Michelle will be taking over PANDORA’s Instagram page directly from Coachella 2018, so stay tuned…
