Pura Vida Bracelets Are COOL & HOT

Remember those "Friendship" bracelets we used to make back in our school days? They were cool and it seems they still are!
A couple of blocks put a twist on ordinary braided string bracelets from Costa Rica and made a simple thing into a full fledged business.
"Pura Vida" means pure life in Spanish. Enjoying life slowly, celebrating good fortune and not taking anything for granted embodies the Pura Vida Lifestyle.

Pura Vida Bracelets

No two bracelets have the same combination of colors or charms, they're unique and it's difficult to find two that are the same. So, when you choose one for yourself, it'll be uniquely yours.

Stand Out this Summer with Fancy Headbands

Aside from a great hairstyle, headbands are among the things that draw attention to your crowning glory. But it should not be just a typical headband. Disney star Bella Thorne knows this for a fact that is why she chose the one-of-a-kind headband during the Paul Frank 2013 Swim Collection launch party in Hollywood on Monday.

Headbands

Her headband is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before that is why I’m quite amazed! It is made up of stars that cascade down her hair! It’s quite lovely and magical looking. It kind of brings to mind magical princesses like Cinderella, Snow White and others.

This summer you can enhance your look with headbands like the one worn by Bella. If you can’t find one exactly like what she’s wearing, there are other designs that would look just as beautiful! Take a look at this Star Head Band by Made which looks a bit like what Bella is wearing. It features a belcher chain imbedded with star charms in gold tone finish.

Accessorize with Dsquared2 Wooden Necklace

Dsquared2 Wooden Necklace

From time to time my officemate brings some jewelry and accessories to the office. Sometimes I also can’t help but look at the goodies she brings. The ones she brings are usually silver. Silver is great but I usually see a lot of women wearing beaded necklaces, and I mean the really huge ones too! They are really eye catching. Beads are unique and I think wooden necklaces are very unique as well, like this Wooden Necklace by Dsquared2.

This Wooden Necklace is a unique combination of… yup you guessed it right, wood, and especially silver. The wood is crafted into discs and accented with round metal studs in the middle. The discs are also made with holes where the polished silver chain goes through linking them all. And the clasp looks beautiful…it’s an oversized “D2” logo hook and eye clasp.
