I can’t believe it but my oldest son is a freshman this year. I actually have a child in high school, I still can’t believe that is true. Just around the corner will be college and in case you haven’t heard, college is EXPENSIVE!! I get overwhelmed just thinking about the cost to college so I get real excited hearing about places such as CampusBookRentals. A website where you rent your textbooks and save up to 80 percent on your book cost!
The wonderful benefits of Campus Books are: -save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own – to other students… which is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they’d make through buyback options! (selling their books back at the end of the semester) Isn’t that awesome?
Below is a video to show you how Campus Books Rental works!
I also love the fact that CampusBookRentals is keeping their partnership with Operation Smile and have committed to donate a minimum of 80 additional surgeries between June 2013 and June 2014.
They are an incredible organization that forever changes children’s lives through reconstructive cleft lip surgeries. The long-term improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. It is so wonderful to see a company that gives back in such an incredible way-a way that changes lives for the better!!
If you have a child in college or one that is about to get there you need to check this site out! It can save you SO much money!
This post was compensated but all opinions are 100 percent mine!!
Winter time can be so rough on my skin and my lips. They get chapped SO easily so I was excited to receive four different kinds of Carmex Limited Edition Ultra Hydrating Moisture Plus Lip Balm. These are moisturizing lip balms with a sleek dash of style, from our satiny clear gloss to just-right sheer colors that also add Vitamin E, shea butter and sun protection.
I loved the beautiful cases the Carmex came in, they are slick, stylish and fit easily in my pocket or purse. I love the fact they don’t look like chapstick, they look too stylish for that!
Each one of the four limited edition designs is meant to represent a different personality trait.
FAB – This one is a purple geometric print that is for the girl who likes to be up on the latest trends.
ADVENTUROUS – The animal print is for the girl who likes to take a risk and try new things.
CHIC – The black and white pattern is both modern and classic.
WHIMSICAL – The colorful design is great for the free-spirited girl.
Carmex Limited Edition Ultra Hydrating Moisture Plus Lip Balm:
Has Vitamin E
Contains Shea Butter
Soft Vanilla Flavor
Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen
Satiny Clear Gloss Finish
I really liked the soft, texture to the Carmex Moisture Plus lip balm. It has a nice scent and I like the way my lips tingle with it, like they are being medicated but not in a bad way. I have seen a big improvement in my chap lips since using it and I try to put in on during the day and especially at night before I go to sleep. It is working!!
These would make great stocking stuffers or present toppers!

The children of today are impressively tech savvy. Their approach to technology is intuitive as they have, in many cases, grown up with things like the internet and home PCs. However, this doesn’t mean every parent is eager to hand over an expensive gadget at playtime! Rather than risking your pricey and decidedly ‘grown-up’ iPad, [...]
Recently I told you that I was a part of an ambassadorship for my favorite drink in the world, Diet Coke! I love Diet Coke for its unique taste and just the right amount of sweetness which is only possible because of aspartame. Aspartame is 200 times sweeter than sugar so only a very small [...]
