Hope Bracelet

Before I get to the main point of this post I think it's important for me to tell you the reasoning behind it.

Two years ago I went through an extremely hard time. I found out that my brother who was six at the time had a very rare and incurable syndrome called Sanfilippo (MPSIII). We always knew he had something wrong with him, however because it was such a rare syndrome it was hard to diagnose. Long story short he will eventually lose his ability to talk, walk and eat by himself and his life span is drastically lowered, with the majority of Sanfilippo children not living past their teenage years. He means everything to me <3

Two weeks ago I was stalking one of my favourite blogs Zoella when I came across a post about a 'rose gold bracelet' that she bought online. I've wanted to get a tattoo with my brothers name 'Noah' on my wrist for a while now but I am the biggest chicken ever and every time I go to book the appointment I back out. So when I saw Zoe's bracelet I thought it would be a perfect substitution of a tattoo until I build the courage to actually get it done. 

The website Etsy is where I ordered my bracelet from. Etsy is a site where  small businesses can make and sell specific items. These bracelets have words bent into them such as love, faith, hope and you can even customise one and have a word of your choice. I chose the hope bracelet, as all I can do is hope for a cure for this horrible syndrome. So yesterday my bracelet arrived and I am very happy with it! 

So happy that I have ordered another but this time a customised one with 'Noah' bent into it. You should definitely check out the shop on the Etsy website and also check out Zoe's blog, it's fab!

Adios xx
