Common, but Rare: Zumreed

When it comes to music devices nowadays, they can be personalized and customized in many ways. Music devices are available in different colors, styles, and memory programming. iTunes can recognize anybody’s musical tastes and suggest tunes based on what is purchased and downloaded. Then there’s an endless supply of musical accessories available almost everywhere you go.

Speakers, earbuds, and headphones can be found in any color under the sun. Some can be found with unique artwork or brand logos stamped on them. Products from Zumreed are just more musical device accessories in that sea of endless choices. One of the more unique things about these products is that the company is based out of Japan. Product browsing is available online at Zumreed.net, but you cannot purchase anything directly off the internet if you’re not in Japan. Another difference about Zumreed compared to others is that they carry more products. Zumreed is the first I’ve seen to carry all three- speakers, earbuds, and headphones. In addition, other Zumreed “musicgoods” include iPhone stands and carrying cases, phone plug adapters for earpieces or speakers, and cord wraps.

Though Zumreed accessories are like every other audible attachment out there, they’re a rare brand. As mentioned earlier, online purchasing is unavailable in America. Many Urban Outfitter retailers carry Zumreed products, but some states have other carriers. Highlight the “Where to Buy” box on the website to find a Zumreed carrier near you.

Pura Vida Bracelets

If you answered yes to either of those, you  should check out Pura Vida Bracelets! The bracelets are very pretty and hand-made, they are 100% water proof and, to top it all off, the profit the company makes goes to a good cause.

Pura Vida started out when two friends went to Costa Rica in celebration of their college graduation. While there they met a man named Jorge who was peddling bracelets on the streets. It turned out that he had made the bracelets himself and was selling them to support his family, who were living in a single room and sharing three beds. This inspired the two friends to help. They took some of the bracelets home with them and sold them to some friends. Before long they had many people wanting a bracelet. They contacted Jorge and ordered more bracelets and before long it was a business.

The phrase “Pura Vida” is Spanish for Pure Life. It means to live life to its fullest and not let things worry you so much. This is a great name for this company because the bracelets are simple yet beautiful and each one is hand-made and unique. It is also a fitting name because for every bracelet sold, Pura Vida donates 1% to the Surfrider Foundation through 1% for the planet. They also provide full time jobs to the talented artisans of Costa Rica.

These beautiful bracelets are great for completing outfits, stuffing stockings, and even starting conversations. They are durable and water proof and completely unique. If you’re interested in learning more, visit the Pura Vida official website at PuraVidaBracelets.com!

It’s All About The Packaging

How many times have you been out shopping and found yourself drawn to an item just because it has a cool design to it? Even if you do not realize it, the majority of things sold in our global market are sold based on design, not so much for productivity or purpose. I am not saying that something can’t look good and still be useful, take a Macintosh computer for example, it’s elegant and extremely useful! You may not even realize that you are buying something based on it’s looks.

In many aspects of our shopping endeavors the product with the coolest box or the most snappy phrases written on it win our money. I honestly believe that you can have a good product that will not be successful in its sales if the packaging is not worth looking at. Personally, I would choose a drink contained in a modern or newly designed bottle rather than a coke that is in the same old can we see it in on a daily basis. This is not always the case, in fact many people will choose a brand that they know because they are so used to it, but think about it, even coke had branded packaging back when it first came on the market with it’s beautifully crafted glass bottles. It’s all in the packaging, don’t believe me? Take a look at our gallery of amazingly packaged products and see if you can honestly say you wouldn’t want to buy it for the packaging!
