Pura Vida Review October 2016

Pura Vida Review October 2016

Believe it or not, I never use to wear bracelets. I don’t know if it was the idea of them getting caught on things, or the fact that I was just being lazy when it came to accessorizing my outfits. But, since reviewing subscription boxes, I have received some really cute bracelets and realized how much I actually really like wearing them. Today we are looking at Pura Vida – a really cute bracelet subscription.


If you aren’t familiar with Pura Vida it is a monthly subscription for handmade bracelets. Pura Vida means “pure life”, a Costa Rican philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life’s simple treasures. The site offers thousands of bracelets with unique color combinations that represent different aspects of the Pura Vida Lifestyle and allow you to mix & match to create endless style options! Every bracelet is as unique as the artisan who made it and the person wearing it.


The Box: Pura Vida

Cost: $14.95 per month

What You Get: Each month embers get 3 bracelets that are hand-selected by Pura Vida’s top Instagram influencers (up to $50 in value, that’s 70% savings each month).

Ships to: Worldwide

Shipping Cost: FREE to US & $5 International


Pura Vida ships in a plain ol’ blue package, and it was covered in mailing labels so I didn’t take a photo of it. The subscription is pretty straight forward, there’s one option and you can cancel anytime.

Limited Edition Black Cat Seed Bead Bracelet – Value $26

Fall is here! Show your Halloween spirit with our Limited Edition Black Cat Seed Bead. Get yours before the Full Moon hits!

Ummm….normally I don’t like charms on my bracelets, but this one is freakin’ cute and it’s perfect for Halloween. I like that it is simple yet festive at the same time. I really like it.

Coral Studded Bracelet – Value $18

Take your look from day to night with these new studded bracelets! The subtle braid on these beauties adds class to any wrist. Every bracelet is 100% waterproof. Go surf, snowboard, or even take a shower with them on. Wearing your bracelets every day only enhances the natural look and feel. Every bracelet is unique and hand-made therefore a slight variation in color combination may occur.

Even though this is coral, it also kind of looks orange, which makes it perfect for the month of October. And how cute does it look stacked with the cat bracelet. Absolutely loving the festive vibe.

Solid Vanilla Bracelet – Value $5

Lastly we have a simple, cream color, multi-strand bracelet. This one will look beautiful when stacked with a gold watch and gold bangle.

Pura Vida Review October 2016 – Final Thoughts

I am really, really loving my first Pura Vida delivery. These bracelets are so darn cute, and I was so happy yo see that this month’s selection had a Halloween theme. Bracelets like this are perfect for me because they are easily adjustable. I have extremely tiny wrists and usually have trouble with bracelets fitting me properly. I also like that these can be worn together, separately, or stacked with bracelets I already own. Such a cute idea for a monthly subscription!
