Pranava Beauty - Serenity Charity Bracelet by Carli Bybel

Hey everyone! Carli Bybel recently launched Pranava Beauty which is a website where you can see her latest projects as well as find out more about the WAH Foundation which I will expand on further down into the post. I am all about supporting a good cause and I definitely had to purchase the beautiful Serenity Charity Bracelet!

The Charity Bracelets
Carli came out with 4 gorgeous bracelets that all have a meaning behind them and each piece includes a real semi-precious stone. They are gold plated and they look great stacked (which you can see on Carli on the Pranava Beauty website.) They are limited edition and if you are thinking about getting one, I suggest that you do so before they are all gone! The best thing is that 100% of the profits will be donated to help bring girls to school in Cambodia and the goal is to raise $100,000 which she definitely surpassed!

I chose Serenity after viewing all of the other bracelets for several reasons. Green is my absolute favourite colour and I was instantly drawn to the jade stone. I have taken this directly from the website and you can read more about it on Pranava Beauty: "It is a protective stone, which will keep the wearer from harm and brings harmony into your life. Jade brings good luck and friendship." That  definitely stood out to me and ultimately helped me make my decision. This bracelet will match just about every single outfit and the gold will really compliment a nice tan! It was also packaged well in a white branded box with some removable cushion for the bracelet.

Bracelet Details
I have very small wrists in general and most of the time, I cannot wear bangles because they will slide right off my wrist. This bracelet comes with a lobster clasp that helps you adjust the size of your bracelet to your liking. The bracelet measures 7" in length and has a 2" extender. This is a very well constructed piece and it is very delicate. This sits closer to my hand for the reason that I just mentioned and I do wear my bracelet on the first link which is the smallest that it can go. The Om symbol hangs down and it placed on a gold circle which is a stunning detail. 

There is a rhinestone crystal beside the word 'serenity' and the brown fabric is braided into three appearing that it will not fray. There are 4 circular gold accents on either side of the jade stone which is a detail that I think is brilliant! Another great feature is that if you are wearing this bracelet either with a sweater or long sleeves, the links that drop down may get intertwined with the rest of the bracelet at the back but it actually looks fantastic like that! Some bracelets look messy or the wearer may get annoyed when that happens but in this case, it almost looks better that way! I don't know if that was done on purpose or if it was done without knowing, but it looks great either way!

Price & Shipping
Each one of her stunning bracelets retails for $20 USD. On the web site it says, "ships on or before March 27th." My shipping date was on April 6th, but that was fine with me. This is a new project for her and I honestly didn't mind waiting for my gorgeous bracelet to come in the mail. I placed my order on March 21st and I received my bracelet in the mail on April 13th. It took 22 days from when I placed my order until I actually received my bracelet in the mail so keep that in-mind when you are ordering. Especially if you plan on ordering a bracelet as a gift for a loved one. 

If you are wondering how much shipping costs, it was $9.95 USD to ship from the USA to Canada. That is the international shipping cost and Pranava ships worldwide. If you live in the USA, then shipping will run you $4.95 USD. Overall, my total come to $29.95 USD and with the conversion rate, it ran me a total of $41.20 CAD. They ship from Los Angeles, California.

WAH Foundation & Pranava Beauty
Carli has been named the Global Ambassador for the WAH FoundationShe also launched the Carli Bybel Scholarship program which will send 120 girls to school in Cambodia which includes: books, tuition, housing and meals for 4 consecutive years. Even though she reached her goal, she still wants to help send as many girls as she can to school in Cambodia and will continue to do so as long as there is still stock available for her bracelets! She recently flew to Cambodia to deliver the check for $100,000 herself in person! 

If you are wondering, Pranava means 'cosmic sound' in Sanskrit and is the name for the mantra Om. The great thing is that her products are 100% vegan and 100% gluten-free. She goes more into depth and elaborates more on her Youtube video titled, 'Big Announcement + New Product Launch!' that I have linked for you. She is definitely putting her platform to good use!
I have been watching and supporting Carli for many years. I purchased her first 14 Colour Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette that came out on BH Cosmetics web site that I have an entire review on. Right now, you can pre-order her new palette on the Pranava Beauty website which looks stunning with the marble detail! There are 21 eyeshadows and a gorgeous range of highlighters! Some of the shades are the same as the first palette and some are new. It retails for $19.50 USD and there is a limit of 2 for each customer.

Carli will definitely be coming out with future projects in the upcoming months and there is even a 'perfume' section on her web site that sounds very exciting. I absolutely love my Serenity Charity Bracelet and it is even more fulfilling to know that will my purchase, it has gone to an amazing cause helping a girl across the world in Cambodia, to be able to go to school!

Until next time,
