I admit that it can be hard to stay motivated or inspired at times, especially as a blogger and creative person.

As I mentioned on Facebook Live a few weeks ago, we have to “sprinkle” self-care into our daily routines. Our souls may not get replenished in one shot. Whether we deal with low self-esteem, mental health struggles or stepping out of our comfort zone, we need daily doses of healthy energy & motivation.

As I flipped through Instagram for inspiration I stumbled upon a company who is totally in sync with my philosophy: how can we keep positivity in our periphery?

La Clé creates action based accessories and apparel that give you the opportunity to Look Good, Feel Good and Do Good. I spoke with the brand founder, Deanna, and was excited to learn more about their products. La Clé (which means “the key” in French) is based in Vienna, VA and started in 2014. She states that the brand’s goal is to encourage people to make positivity and generosity part of their “daily growth strategy.”

What easier way to implement your daily growth strategy than to wear it!


Naturally I was drawn to their Refocus Bands, which was one of the products designed by Deanna. She created fashionable and durable bracelets so people could not only wear them, but also to inspire healthy interactions with others. When she played soccer in college she wrote motivational messages on rubber bands for her teammates. She hopes these Refocus Bands will be the reminder people need to keep their mind and thoughts positive. Focusing on the good things in life is part of the brand’s mission.

Deanna states that we have to take control of what we think. Whether I am writing about healthy self-talk or building confidence, I have also encouraged you to take back control. Controlling what we think, controlling who we allow in our lives and controlling what makes us happy. One of the bracelets I keep reaching for is the Rewire band. The message states, “Change is only a choice away.” When we consciously make positive changes in our life, we make a good choice. Good choices usually lead to good results. Healthy self-talk and a positive attitude actively rewires our brain.

The Refocus Bands can be flipped over to display colorful designs or your favorite inspirational messages. Some of the messages include:

“I am the storm” – Reassure Band

“It doesn’t matter what they think.” – Realize Band

“You’re effin’ brilliant.” – Remarkable Band

“If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a hell no.” – Rethink Band

“Disconnect to reconnect.” – Reboot Band


The Refocus Bands also come in mini sizes and would make a perfect gift for any young person in your life who needs a little boost!

I encourage you to look into the La Clé website and SUPER inspiring Instagram page to choose an inspirational product for yourself or a friend, colleague, family member or mentee. Let someone special know that you are thinking of them and cheering them on!
