Lokai Bracelet Review + Giveaway!

Everyone knows by now that life is full of ups and downs. This past week has been a huge reality check in that aspect for me. It's all about keeping the balance though and Lokai is here to help remind us of that.

About Lokai
Have you ever experienced a moment that shakes you to your core? We all enter moments when we’re suddenly very aware that our lives can take a turn in an instant. That right behind challenges lie times of great happiness – and vice versa.

For Steven Izen, that moment was during his freshman year at Cornell University. His grandfather, “Papa,” was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. It was the first time he felt helpless, knowing he would have to sit back and watch his Papa’s mental faculties and body slowly deteriorate.

Days after he received the heartbreaking news, Steven found himself on the beach with his family and friends. He wondered - how could some parts of his life feel so aligned, while others were so broken?

It was this realization that was the driving force behind lokai, a bracelet that encourages one to be humble through the highs and hopeful through the lows. Drawn to the earth itself and its natural sensibility of highs and lows, Steven set out to give this sense of balance a physical form. Nearly three years later, after countless hours of research and development, lokai was born.

The bracelet is infused with elements sourced from the highest and lowest points on Earth. The white ball, carring water from Mt. Everest, and the black ball, holding mud from the Dead Sea, exist on opposite ends. A string of clear beads link the two, signifying that throughout life’s circular journey, your path is your own. As Steven puts it, “life is about the journey, not the destination.”

Life is marked by highs and lows. And without one, we could not appreciate the other. The lokai bracelet is a constant reminder that no matter how far the scale tips in one direction, you should always strive for balance. 

Wear lokai to remember that life sees many altering moments - it’s how you process them that matters most. Wear it as a reminder that your path is yours alone, or give lokai to someone who might do well to remember the value of his or her own personal journey.

No matter the setback, success or surprise, enjoy your story. Wherever your journey takes you, find your balance.

My thoughts:
I love this bracelet. It's unique and beautiful. I love  that it goes well with all of my outfits.  It fits nicely and  doesn't irritate me at all.  I love that it's infused with elements sourced from Mt. Everest and  the Dead Sea. It adds a coolness factor to it instead of it just being another bracelet. Now it almost makes me want to cut it open so I can see for myself, but it's so cute that I can't do that. Besides, my daughter is begging to have one as well so I can't bring myself to cut it open. We will just have to beleive them.
oh,  look on their instagram account- looks like someone did the hard work for us! That's super awesome!
