Thankful 4.16.15

It's sad how unappreciative I can become when I've a hard week. I'm thankful for the people in my life who encourage me to keep looking up. 

What are you thankful for?

Have a happy weekend!

Thankful 4.9

Hey everyone--

I am so thankful for those little unexpected moments of happiness in life.

 Like when a bad day ends in joyful conversation, or when you realize a shrub that has been bare all winter is now a blooming rose bush! I have beautiful roses outside of my apartment that I've been enjoying on my way in and out. They just showed up one day, like most good things do. I cherish those surprises and tiny joys.

What are you thankful for this week?

Thankful Thursday

Hey everyone--

I'm starting a new series on the blog to help cultivate a thankful spirit. I've been wanting to do this for a long time, but I haven't been sure how to go about it.

Wednesday Inspiration

Hey guys--

Here's a little inspo from Elvis to help you get through the week!

 I've recently been struggling through a lot of setbacks and I've been fighting the urge to dwell on negative thoughts. It's a struggle to stay positive in the midst of trials, but it's always worth it! Let's strengthen and encourage each other to not go bad!

Happy Wednesday!

Black x White

Hey friends--

It has been a rough couple of weeks here lately. Thank you, thank you to all who have sent well wishes! 

Brrrr it's also been so cold in my little corner of the world. I have to layer up every morning before leaving the house. I love finding cozy pieces like this cape/poncho that makes bundling up look a little cuter. Plus it makes me feel like I'm wearing a blanket all day & I am A-okay with that.

Stay warm everyone!

Campus Book Rentals & Operation Smile Collaboration


Hey friends--

I've partnered up with Campus Book Rentals to let you know about their awesome company and partnership with Operation Smile! If you're in the market for textbooks, Campus Book Rentals has some really great perks for students!

Some of these include:
- Save 40%-90% off bookstore prices
-Free shipping both ways
-You can highlight in the books
-Rental periods are flexible
- Donation to Operation Smile with each textbook rental

With Campus Book Rentals, you can save a great deal of money on textbook rentals! Even better, you can help a very worthy cause while you shop. With each textbook rented, Campus Book Rentals donates to Operation Smile. 
Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that transforms lives through surgery. They perform safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries and they deliver medical therapies to children in low and middle income countries. Every 3 minutes, a child is born with a cleft. A child born with a cleft has increased odds of dying before their 1st birthday. Many children that survive with a cleft condition have difficulty eating, speaking, hearing, or breathing. In many of these cases, parents and families can't afford the surgeries to help their children. Operation Child is being very proactive about this issue and our working in over 60 countries to heal children's smiles and bring hope where it's needed. 

You can help them make the difference in these children's lives! 

Check out their site today to rent today!
  & Check out Operation Smile's website and adorable blog (The Smile Blog) for more information on the charity!

Happy reading!
