Positive energy with Alex and Ani

13 October 2013

I am taking a break from my self-imposed blogging break because I just finished watching a really great movie and while I don't feel I can articulate yet the reasons why I loved it, it shook me out of my stupor and reminded me of why I love writing and sharing a little of myself with everything I post here.

It's no secret that I love

lovely things,
and charm bracelets
A quick glance at my sidebar will show you that "chandeliers, cheesecakes, and charm bracelets make me happy."
- and so a work event in Café 1771 last Tuesday to launch Alex and Ani in Manila couldn't have come at a better time. I've been feeling uninspired lately so seeing all these pretty little things in such a charming setting certainly lifted my spirits.
Alex and Ani, LLC manufactures eco-friendly products that adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit, designed by Carolyn Rafaelian and made in America. The brand embraces her personal belied that every individual has a positive message to share with the world. Thus, by incorporating powerful symbolism into each piece, Alex and Ani provides a vehicle for the wearer to express her individuality in an organic, spiritual way.
Personally, I love wearing charm bracelets because - and I'm not gonna lie, aside from feeding my vanity whenever I wear something pretty - each of them holds a special meaning for me. I am a magpie so I have built quite a collection already, but my favorites are my pink/ ultra-girly one and the other one with charms related to movies. As cheesy as it sounds, even on the suckiest of days, one look at them is enough to remind me that everything is going to be okay.

And now, my "League of Krissy's Favorite Charm Bracelets" has a new member.

Om Charm Bangle
Om is an intonation, a sound resonating throughout the body into the soul. It signifies God, higher power, and the oneness of all beings in life's cycle. The past, the present and the future are all represented in this one sound. Adorn yourself with the Om to connect with your inner spirit, accept serenity, and embrace your faith.
The bangles were given randomly that day so I am extra stoked that I got this one. As most of the people I interact with regularly know, serenity is one of my ultimate favorite words. As some of you also know, I have started practicing yoga so seeing this on my wrist is a great constant reminder of the discipline I learned from my lessons. We are a match made in charm bracelet-heaven.

There are also a lot of other designs to choose from. Here are just a few of them:

Celebrate every moment, get one for every milestone of your life, and bring these little reminders and "encouragements" with you everywhere you go. The Alex and Ani collections are currently available at Counter 2, Level 2 of SM Aura Premier.
