Lucky Charms

Monday, April 15, 2013

Lucky Cat...Rabbit's Foot...Lucky Horseshoe...Four Leaf Clover...These are just a sampling of good luck charms people from various cultures believe in. Do you have any personal good luck charms or superstitions? Did your family pass any of them on to you? I've adopted some practices from Chinese New Year (CNY) and I pray, but that's about it. Tell me your feelings about this, your story or if you know someone that does believe in good luck practices.

Haha, I think all I do is to keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best ;-) Maybe a little lucky charm might help... Have a lovely start to the week xo

PS: I've emailed Bloglovin' as I'm having trouble "claiming" my blog since it's self-hosted. Hopefully it'll be sorted soon xo

Hi Kim! You know, I havent any of these gogeous charms and I'd love since I really like the bracelets with them! The one with the kitty is my fav, too adorable! Happy Monday dear, kisses! xo

Janice Lunes said...

Looks very nice Kim :)

I only know Pandora when it comes to charms and such but I will check them out because I like what I see haha

I have to admit, I'm not a particularly spiritual person, and I'm definitely not superstitious. Practising yoga is about as close as I get to anything like that :) But I can't resist that good luck cats - Vancouver has a large Chinese population and we see them everywhere. That charm is just too cute!
xox,

I don't actually believe in lucky charms but I value something deeply esp when passed on to me from my parents :))

Tina Bradley said...

I don't have a lucky charm per se... The lucky cat charm featured above is my personal fave. :) http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

I just love Pandora bracelets and charms - perfect gifts!

I think in our family they were all passed down to us! I know if anyone is taking exams or starting a new job we send a card often with a four leaf clover on the front and the bride and groom often receive a horseshoe on their wedding day. Cute charms here Kim.

BIKBIK AND RORO said...

I'm Christian, so I pray, but even in my younger, more "heathen" days I didn't really have a good luck charm. I'm loving the kitty one here though :) (This is reminding me vaguely of a post I wrote over a year ago: http://bikbikroro.blogspot.sg/2012/01/on-superstition-and-faith.html )

Mica said...

The lucky cat is so cute! I gave my bestie a lucky cat charm and she used to clip it on her bags for interviews to give her luck, I thought it was so sweet she did that :)
I make sure to take a bag or a bag with a charm that reminds me of her when I feel I need a little luck too, hehe!

I quite like a lot of the feng shui practices for good luck, keeping doormat and entrance area dust and debris free (especially if you've got a business) two pillows or pairs of things in a couples bedroom, not sitting with your back to the doorway or sleeping with your legs/feet pointing to a doorway! I'm also superstitious about the number 11, and enjoy seeing the time coincidentally if it's 11.11! I also have a little beaded bracelet I wear to work if I think my stress levels might rise, and it reminds me not to stress! Funny. Xx

these are so fabulous, Kim!!

Style Journey said...

I'm not one to be too superstitious, but I do wear my horseshoe necklace. You never know, right? Heather

Sam said...

Ohh these are absolutely adorable, I wouldn't mind a closer or horseshoe and luckily Pandora is a brand we actually get here in SA!

flysongbird said...

i used to be somewhat superstitious during school, specially around exams.i am not so now. i don't believe in lucky charms or colors or objects. i feel like that way i am expecting for something that may not be and i am opening myself to disappointment in case things don't go the right way.

Irene said...

My boyfriend brought me a four-leaf clover pendat from Ireland and I always wear it whenever I'm flying somewhere or having an exam :)
I love Pandora's ring collection and these charms are very beautiful as well!
Have a lovely week, Kim!

I have to be honest, I don't believe in charms unless, of course, somebody is convinced that the one they've got brings them luck. However, I believe in signs and certain things like stones (not too much, but I enjoy learning the meaning of stones, flowers etc.) and I carry two little soft bunnies in my bag and, if I have an important meeting, always wear a necklace given to me by my husband. :) Every little helps, you know. :) :) :)

Lovely charms! I've been wanting a pandora bracelet and still haven't got one, maybe I will soon!

I love charms, Kim ... I've never really had a true charm bracelet that's filled with charms signifying important times in my life but I've always wanted one and I'm sure I'll end up starting one some time soon ... as far as lucky charms? I sometimes save my fortune from fortune cookies (have been known to frame the really good ones!) but no lucky charms that I know of. Just prayer and trusting that all will be fine ;) Thanks for your sweet comment, Kim sweet ... have a great new week! xo ~S

Laura Go said...

I used to carry a felt good luck charm with a few Japanese words in it that was made by one of my good friends. It's too faded and worn out to tote around with me now, but I still have it.

FASHION TALES said...

I still have my charm bracelets from growing up that I love! I am not superstitious, but I do meditate and tend to think of spirituality very much for a balanced life.

Meghan Silva said...

I don't know about lucky charms however I do wear a necklace with a few charms on them which are very special to me and an evil eye charm that I carry with me , these charms are gorgeous.

I love the idea of a good luck charm! I personally do not have any but I think that what's the harm in keeping one around? I wouldnt mind a wishbone perhaps!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

I don't have any good luck charms, but I do have this thing where I have to step on a comb before I pick it up if it falls out of my hand and on the floor. It's a hair superstition.

These are cute! My husband and I both carry blessings in red envelops in our wallets. We get these when we visit the Buddhist temple every Chinese New Year and it's supposed to keep us safe.

Too cute! I'm completely addicted to Pandora charms. I believe in all good luck charms but my personal favorite is the four leaf clover. I'm adding the clover charm to my wishlist, I love the pop of green.
