I always consider myself lucky that I get to try new things as a blogger and still find it strange that people value my opinion. Every now and then I get to try something that really stands out from the crowd and I fell luckier still, that’s exactly how I feel about El Camino.
The concept is simple, a charm bracelet dedicated to travel, but the reality is fun and stylish and most importantly affordable.
I chose a turquoise blue, double length band and went for the United States Large Step and California Small Step.
There are so many colours to choose from when it comes to the bracelet and you can have either a single or double like I went for, I love that the colour choices and simple woven design makes them completely unisex and easy to wear with any outfit.
As for the steps I didn’t have any issues finding them for all of my travels, the larger steps represent countries with the smaller steps representing states, cities or major attractions like the Great Barrier Reef. You can also get coloured steps for the overall regions you have travelled through, like Europe or North America for example.
The whole idea is that these bracelets tell your story and I went for the USA and California as a major part of my story was visiting my family in Chico, getting engaged at Mount Lassen and getting married at Lake Tahoe. America is kind of a big deal for us.
I also love that I can easily add other important places to my bracelet and will be, Rome was my first overseas blogging trip, Paris was the first city I fell in love with and Barcelona the second. Andorra was where I learnt to ski and Norway was where I actually managed to ski 😉
The bracelets start at £21.99 and the Steps start at £8.49 which is amazing value.
To be fair I was blown away even before my bracelet arrived so when it turned up so beautifully packaged, with each step individually wrapped and not only getting the super shiny country step but also a lovely coconut spacer with each one too I was completely smitten. I’d seen the spacers on the website and thought they were such a fab idea, I just wasn’t expecting to get them as standard.
My bracelet is very me, I feel comfortable wearing it and I love the story it tells and that it allows me to dream of sunnier and happier times even on the dullest of days.
I honestly cannot recommend these highly enough.
Disclosure – I was gifted my bracelet for the purpose of this review, but hopefully you can tell I genuinely love it.
