I really have a hard time thinking about which present to give my best friend. It’s quite ironic, really – how easy it is to find a present for a co-worker but difficult to choose one for one of the closest people in my life.
My best friend lives in another country which makes it even more difficult for me to think of presents for her. When she first moved away, I sent her books, makeup, clothes and other stuff for her birthday or special occasions such as Christmas. It was really hard for me to be away from her, especially when times get rough. She’s like my sister, adviser, confidant and critique all rolled into one beautiful person. Continue reading
Halloween has come to be associated more with fun than scares. Over time and ages, Halloween has come to be celebrated among kids and adults alike with fervor and festivity.
However, the trick and treat tradition has never failed to raise its head up high amid all the costume parties and pumpkin lanterns. In case you happen to have been the reclusive neighbor with barely much time for the tiny tots and young adults planning to trick-treat you, you sure must be bugged for landing up ideas on the best Halloween giveaways instead of the traditional candy. More than doing away with tradition, you must have forgotten to stack up on your candy bag. Here are top Halloween giveaways for those trick-n-treating folks that you can get well under 5-8 dollars and yet make a mark!
Life in itself is an inspiration to live. To be born, to have lived for the time that we have, we have already won against a lot of odds. We’ve picked inspiration from around us, at times even without realizing. Here are a collection of motivational quotes for further inspiration. Take your pick and we shall customize a bracelet for you.
1. Keep Life Simple
We are born simple and with time, both we and our lives get complicated. The trick is to keep remembering that life needs to be simple and uncomplicated.
Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light. -Helen Keller
Friendships are perhaps those relationships that last beyond time, above love and over blood. When it comes to making or nurturing friendships, the truest ones come sans any binding, agenda or need. It stems from the basic need for having enjoyable companionship that transcends diverse tastes. When it becomes to celebrating friendships, there is very little hullabaloo involved. You do not need a bunch of red roses or a precious trinket to say that you are friends with someone. You simply need to be a helping hand, a critic, a well wisher and a strong rock rolled into one to become a good friend. However, on deeper thought it becomes needful to sometimes show your friendship off for the sake of the relationship. How about picking up some ideas that could help seal and manifest your friendship while not overdoing the same?
Everyone has that one closet stuffed to the brim with stuff you don’t want to see or even deal with on an everyday basis (you know what I’m talking about), and guess what you’ll find in there – that’s right, those corporate “gifts” that you get a promotional events that really just clutter up your home with useless junk and annoying logos. Frisbees, hats, those poor quality draw-string backpacks, whistles, foam fingers..you get the point.
The reason that all of these are stuffed in the never-to-be-seen-again closet? Because they suck. They’re unimaginative, low quality, and have no purpose.
Enter: the bracelet.
Omg we’re totally stoked to bring you this news! We’ve been working this summer to bring you what has been the festival hit of the summer – these trendy little lace bracelets!
Aren’t they awesome? They look great for guys, and for girls
These cruciani-inspired bracelets took a life of their own when we created something similar, but out of leather!
Right now we’ve got 6 pretty designs for the bracelets up available. They’re all available in two colors. But in the future we’ll put up other options, including customizable, embossed leather with your own message (just like our classic Friendly Bracelets).
Introductions, highlights, and what the future has to bring
After 3 years of developing Friendly Bracelets into the fun-loving, friendship-radiating site that is today, we’ve finally feel like we’re ready to put our thoughts out into the world through this awesome blog! It’s a big task, but we feel like we’re up for it. To get started we figured we should get to know you, and tell you a little bit about why we do the things we do, and some of the highlights so far.
Who are we, and how did we get started?
We are Ieva and Artis. We fell in love with the idea of friendship bracelets when we came across a street vendor in California – we loved the idea of having that connection with you all the time, even when you can’t be together.
You know it’s true love when you can be silly together… Continue reading
