Positivity na ang game ng mga tao ngayon. Gone are the days when emo parati ang mga tao--ngayon "Look up!" na, "Excelsior", yolo!, and of course The Secret! na ang motto in life ng marami. And I lovet. That's why when I got an invitation to an accessories launch that promotes positive energy, can't miss et! ;p
Event's host shows off her Alex and Ani bangle--with a seashell charm. She told us na she's a water baby at heart (love love her tan complexion!), and a conch shell to remind her of the sea is what she'll wear everyday around her wrist.
This is the idea of American lifestyle brand, Alex and Ani. With an iconic line of bangles in signature finishes (sourced in the United States from eco-friendly materials!), this Rhode Island-based company takes more than a free-spirited approach to design by adorning the body, enlightening the mind and empowering the spirit---by providing charms that have meaning to the wearer!
Started in 2004 by Designer, Founder and Creative Director Carolyn Rafaelian, Alex and Ani is named after her first two daughters.
“The idea behind our charms is to create a completely customizable stack of expandable bangles in which you choose pieces that reflect your individuality and tell a personal story.”
Aquarius, from their Zodiac Signs:
Letter "A" (for Anagon, haha)
Fleur de Lis:
Four-Leaf Clover Charm:
Charms with positive words:
Lotus flower (bilang I love the concept "lotus flower in a murky pond" :))
Birthstone Charm Bangle:
Roles in life charm, like "Mom" and "Daughter" (pedeng pang gift)
Places you've been to:
The concept is to get a charmed bangle for every special occasion or milestone in your life--new work, new place you've been to, etcetera. I love that idea talaga, na always ka inspired when you wear your reminder bracelets. :) I randomly got the "Tree of Life" bangle during the event. I can have it exchanged, but I decided to stick with this baka may ibig sabihin sha sa life ko. Inside the nice box packaging of the bangle, Alex and Ani describes this charm as a symbol of hope and growth....
