Hello beautiessss ❥
"Know who you are & know its enough"
If you're a big fan of ciaoobelllaxo on youtube then you would've probably have heard of Alex and Ani because she has mentioned them in her videos a few times. When I saw the store in Vegas, I completely freaked out and rushed over. I absolutely love the concept of the company and what they do. Make sure you read more about them on their website linked above.
What I learned about the company from the salesperson who helped me out in the store is that all the bracelets are made from recycled metal. But what I loved most is that each charm has an amazing message. This is great because it allows you to really personalize your own stack of bracelets.
"Alex and Ani is pioneering its own definition of corporate consciousness with sustainable initiatives and the creation of high quality, thoughtfully manufactured pieces. We are committed to building a culture that focuses entirely on mindful actions."
"To us, sustainability is an essential idea that means contributing to a new way of thinking and acting that considers the wellbeing of our planet, our communities, and our individual paths. We empower individuals to actively create the world they want to live in. Alex and Ani’s ethos is living consciously, turning a lifestyle brand into a way of life."
I wanted to buy so many more but I settled for buying three bracelets for right now. Each bracelet is $28, which is quite affordable but they are meant to be stacked so it can get pretty pricey. However, you can slowly build your collection, which is what I plan on doing because I will definitely be purchasing more.
Below are the three bracelets I choose and the description of their meaning.
Path of life: Strength, motivation, knowledge. Emblematic of life's zenith and nadir moments, the Path of Life is representative of an infinite number of possibilities and expressions of love. Illustrating life's twists, turns, and unexpected winds, wear the Path of Life charm to proudly celebrate your own willingness to travel towards life's fruitful moments."
March Birthstone (Aquamarine): Peace, courage, health. The most powerful meditation stone, March's aquamarine brings great peace, serenity, and harmony. Wear aquamarine to clear the mind and build courage.
Endless Knot: Wisdom, compassion, destiny. Representing the interweaving and ever-changing spiritual path, the endless knot expresses boundless wisdom and compassion. It illustrates an eternal pattern in its design, connecting one's destiny bound by time and change. Wear the Endless Knot Charm to remind you of life's journey and the entanglements of fate.
I almost forgot to mention that my boyfriend bought them for me! While I was still admiring all of these bracelets, he completely surprised me and already paid for them with another salesperson. It just so happened to be our 5 years and 8 months anniversary that day, so he thought it would make a great present and I could not be more pleased!
Another interesting fact: I mentioned my new bracelets on twitter and tagged Alex and Ani and they replied to my tweet. How cool!
Hope you beauties enjoyed this post & thanks for reading!
