Live Free With Pura Vida

April 29, 2014 — by Griffin Thall


Live free with Pura Vida!  What makes you happy?  Happiness is key to living a healthy lifestyle.  Here are 5 ways to live free and happy this summer-

1. Enjoy the outdoors- Get out and get moving!  Try taking an early morning stroll along the beach.  Or explore your local farmers market.  Anything to get out and enjoy the sunshine.

2. Eat healthy- Eating healthy can be both fun and rewarding.  Fruit is the perfect snack for those hot summer days.  Slice up a watermelon and bring it along on the go.

3. Be creative- Do something creative!!  Try a new DIY project.  Pinterest is a great source and is home to thousands of DIY projects.  Painting is also a great creative outlet.  Try breaking out those watercolors you’ve had stashed away.

4. Become one with your surroundings- Slow down your pace and enjoy the flowers you pass by everyday.  It’s amazing what we miss while in a hurry.

5. Good company- Spend your time in good company.  What’s better then having your good friends by your side?

Happiness is contagious and happy people radiate.  Show us what makes you happy and tag us on Instagram #puravidabracelets

Five Best Swimwear Brands of 2014

March 3, 2014 — by Griffin Thall


Yes, it’s winter. Yes, the east coast is going through a debilitating blizzard/snowstorm at the moment, and yes, it is even starting to rain in San Diego, but why not give every one something to look forward to? Because we love the beach and all things that come with those beautiful sunny rays, here are five swimwear brands to know. What better time than now to order a bathing suit for the upcoming summer months? You’ll be ready to go, when every one else will be rushing to find the perfect fit.

Mikoh Swimwear: 
The beauty of Mikoh swimwear is that it is seamless and hardware-free. The suits are soft, inspired by different cultures from around the world, yet the play with prints and cutouts makes them one-of-a-kind.

Triangl Swimwear: 
Triangl swimwear is vibrant and fun, mixing an array of bright oranges, pinks and blues, outlined with a thick black border. They are slimming, well fitting and make you feel good – and their easy to mix nature makes them ready-to-wear.

Acacia Swimwear:
Acacia swimwear combines classic swimwear pieces with the low-cut Italian flare and the sexy, classic Brazilian fit. Mixing sexy string cutouts with high-waisted bottoms and cheeky one-pieces, each swimsuit is seamless perfection.  

Lolli Swim:

Lolli swim is a little more retro than the other three. Inspired by an earlier time, vintage-like bows, girly ruffles, feminine prints and heart-shaped cutouts make this brand one to look out for.


Playing with fringe, bold colors, tribal prints, and of course, the Chloe Wrap Top, what’s not to love about L*Space Swimwear? For the girl who fears nothing and loves everything, this is the brand for you.
