Hey  There,

I am so happy you made it here! Let me introduce myself, my name is Kat, I am the creator of Live to Thrive Blog which is where I spend most of my energy. But, when I am not blogging you can find me daydreaming about saving the planet, taking way to many pictures (of who knows what), fiddling in my garden, & eating one of my beloved yogurt bowls.

Pura  Vida Bracelets

Bracelets with a meaning or a story are the only ones I wear! Like, I have this leather braided bracelet that I had made in Clearwater, FL by an artisan on a pier. I love it! Because I know it came from a purpose & I supported a talented artist.


I have always supported Pura Vida Bracelets & their mission to make the world a better place, one bracelet at a time. There is nothing better than original pieces that were not made in a factory, but by someone who is passionate about their work. Keep reading to find out why...

Their Story


Pura Vida began in 2010 when 2 college friends, Paul & Griffin, returned from Costa Rica motivated sell bracelets struggling artisans had created. 


Within a few days, all the bracelets sold out! Which is when both men realized they have created something bigger than themselves. They were not just selling friendship bracelets, but bracelets with a meaning and a story, to live a Pure Life.

Pura Vida is a brand that values the power of giving back. They...

  • Use sustainable packaging

  • Employ over 650 artisans worldwide

  • Work with over 170 charities

  • Have raised over $1.7 million for causes that make a difference

  • Offer WAY more than just bracelets: patches, rings, shirts, towels, necklaces, and more
