Adventure in style this summer with Pura Vida.  We love our solid and original styles mixed together.  They look great with just about every style imaginable.  The color options are endless!  They also look perfect in combination with our beanie collection.  Pura Vida beanies come in many different colors, to match perfectly with all your outfits.  We are obsessing over the Teal Beanie paired with jeans and a basic tee.  It’s simple, yet adds a pop of color to the whole look!  We also love the Heather Blue Beanie matched with jeans and a flannel.  It’s just right for those colder evenings.  The look is stunning mixed with pinks, purples, and blues.

Check out some of our favorite collections before they sell out!! Pura Vida Beanies, Original Collection, Solid Collection.

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.

10 Fun Things to do in May

April 28, 2014 — by Griffin Thall


May is here! Which means good weather commence. Here are your 10 fun things to do – May Edition. Enjoy!

1. First and foremost, do something fun with your mom.  Whether you take her out for a mani/pedi or you two go get dinner and a movie, do something fun with/for your mother. It is in fact Mothers Day May 11 – so don’t forget!

2. Host a dinner party. Here is a great article on how to design the perfect dinner.  Why not gather your friends and attempt a classy evening together?

3. Try a new cocktail recipe. Ever made a Mango-Raspberry Mimosa? Or what about a cilantro- pineapple margarita? Or even a spicy-soto sangria?

4. Take a painting class. Painting classes like Paint A Dream are fun and cheap ways to get out of the house and explore your creativity.

5. Go to a baseball game. Baseball season is here and tickets are cheap! Teams usually offer college night deals, or you can get a seat at the top. As long as you are with good friends, are drinking cheap beer, and eating yummy hot dogs, you can’t go wrong.

6. Look out for spring/summer sales. Since summer is coming up, new stock is coming in. This means look out for spring and summer sales – save yourself some money and go forth, into the light that is your nearest mall.

7. Mail a postcard or a letter to a friend/relative. Nobody gets snail mail anymore, yet everyone I talk to always says how much they love to receive it. Make some one’s day and write him or her a letter.

8. Do a fun DIY project. Casa & Company has a ton of cute DIY projects you can do. They make perfect gifts for friends, and since mothers day is coming up, you can make your mom something special.

9. Start planting a garden. GardenWeb is the Internet’s largest home and garden community. You can look up any plant name and where to get it, it is the perfect resource for people just looking to get started.

10. Go rollerblading/roller skating. Rollerblading may in fact be one of the most fun things ever. So rent out a pair if you don’t have one and skate on.
