Inspire

Hello Loves, 

Today, I want to share with you about this bracelet I received from my friends at Impressions.  The company that created the bracelet is all about "spreading kindness woman to woman!" Which I absolutely love! My favorite part about this blogging community is how women uplift and inspire each other. It's not about competing, but being an inspiration to all in our community.  So I chose "inspire" as the motivational word on my bracelet.  There are many different words you can choose from for your own bracelet.


Now let's talk about how the bracelet works.

To me it is like a cross between a 'Flat Stanley' (from when I was a kid) and a 'pay it forward' at Starbucks.  Has anyone else ever experienced a Flat Stanley? It was a paper doll that was snail mailed around the world and when you received it you took Stanley on an adventure and took a picture of him! After that you would add to his story and mail him on to someone else for his next adventure.  We all know the term 'pay it forward' like when you go to Starbucks and pay for the order of the stranger in the car behind you.  It's a small way to show kindness to someone you don't know.


Each Little Words bracelet comes with a gold charm. On that charm is a tracking number.  So you log on and enter your bracelet's tracking number and your location. This way you can track your bracelet's adventures just like a Flat Stanley (we just have awesome technology now!). Next, you wear your bracelet filled with kindness and when you feel the time is right you pass it on to someone else. It may be a friend in need of some kindness or even a stranger.  They then can log on and enter their location for the bracelet. How cool is that? Watch kindness spread through a simple act!




I have chosen to send my bracelet on a special journey.  Its first stop is to someone who has been my rock lately in this blogging community and full of inspiration! Whenever I get down or discouraged, she motivates me to keep going! I appreciate this person's friendship more than she will ever know!  I hope that one day we meet in person, but until then we will keep inspiring each other. Of course we will always stay up too late texting!

I hope you will follow my bracelet's journey with me! I will keep you updated with a picture once the next person receives it!


I would love to inspire others to start a bracelet within their community! Call my friends at Impressions (1-479-442-2044). They will be happy to help you. Each bracelet is $26.99.   Think about all of the kindness you can spread with one little bracelet.

  4. This concept sounds like the bracelet form of The Giving Keys! Love them and I could totally get on board with the Impressions bracelets. With the blogging world being semi two-faced, it's good to know that not all bloggers are. Such a great message to post about!

  6. I love products with a story to them and showing kindness to a stranger is one of the nicest things you can do, whether it is by paying for someone else at Starbucks or getting a bracelet like this! Love the idea!
