With a new semester approaching, I wanted to let all my readers know about a text book rental site, campusbookrentals.com.
Some perks are:
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-we donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
How does Campus Book Rentals work?
So you've heard that they donate to Operation Smile, but what is that? I'll tell you...
Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives. Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children will die before their first birthday. The children who survive are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a productive life. Operation Smile provides these services to children in need.
CampusBookRentals.com now has a new program, RentBack. This allows students to rent the textbooks they own to other students. It would bring in 2-4 times the money compared to just selling a book back. And what college student doesn't jump at the opportunity to make more money???

So once he's made up his mind on where we will go that day, I have to think about what to bring. Always diapers/wipes and his blanket and of course, food! I don't usually know what to pack, so it's almost always peanut butter crackers or peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but now that I have some Hillshire Farm Naturals® honey smoked and black forest ham available at Safeway, I can make a ham sandwich for each of us and take it with us in an insulated lunchbox. My son doesn't eat many meats, but ham is one that he really enjoys, so this is a win win. He's getting more protein in his diet, and he's happy!
I recently made him a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, and used a heart cookie cutter to make the sandwich heart shaped. He loved this!!! And so as not to neglect my husband or adult food, I decided to make a ham and crustless ham and cheese quiche for the "big people." Because even though some days it feels like our lives revolve around the little person in our life, we can't neglect the adults in our home. It's so easy to make fast meals the whole family will love with Hillshire Farm Naturals® !

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I received product free of charge, but all opinions are 100% mine

It created a warm tan (not orange like others I've tried), but I had streaks where you could see the difference between my natural skin color and the manufactured tan from the towlettes. It didn't have an odor the first day, but the next few days I smelled like tanner, but no one around me noticed that I'm aware of.
I used a glove so my hands didn't turn tan, so that worked well, as suggested. I also exfoliated before applying, but after applying these tan towlettes my stomach got very patchy, but thats just how my skin is I guess.
They do produce a nice tan, if applied evenly, and if you prepped your skin correctly!
I received this product at a steep discount, but the opinion expressed here is 100% my own.

What is the Together Counts™ campaign?
It's a nationwide program by the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation to inspire active and healthy living via physical activity and nutrition, a fundamental underpinning of efforts to reduce obesity. The principle behind the program is called Energy Balance, which just means balancing the calories we consume with the calories we expend. It makes perfect sense to me. If you eat more than you burn off, that's how people gain weight. Adults and children alike should be aware of how much they are consuming and how physically active they are, to make sure they have a balanced life.
How is Girl Scouts of the Nation's Capital getting involved?
In partnership with the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation, Girl Scouts developed three "healthy habits" booklets to easily incorporate energy balance into meetings, outings, events and adventures. The free booklets help guide girls as they learn to lead active, healthy lifestyles. Through the use of these free resources for Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors, Girl Scout volunteers and families can guide girls in fun, easy ways to achieve "energy balance."
The three Healthy Habits booklets available for download include:
o Between Earth and Sky with Healthy Habits - girls learn about the many plants, trees,
and animals that flourish in nature, and also build important leadership skills.
o WOW! Wonders of Water with Healthy Habits - girls discover the many forms and
paths that water takes and how to protect it. They also learn how to engage in teamwork,
speak effectively to convey a message, and inspire others
o Get Moving! with Healthy Habits - girls learn how to use their energy to protect Earth’s
energy and build important leadership skills.
Why Girl Scouts?
Health and fitness have been part of Girl Scouting since girls ran foot races in 1912! I was never a Girl Scout growing up, but my step sister was and really enjoyed it. I always looked forward to the cookie selling time of the year, of course!!! But I like knowing that they put an emphasis on being outdoors and being active! After all camping is essential to Girl Scouts mission. It is about the outdoors, and developing a deep appreciation for nature. Girls enjoy camping with their troop or attending a Girl Scout day and evening or resident sleep-away camp. From high adventure with kayaking, archery and rock climbing to traditional camps with crafts, singing, hiking and cooking over an open fire, Girl Scout camps give girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults. Find your local council to enroll girls in camp programs.
Another nice thing about this organization is that Girl Scouts’ leadership program is girl-led. And Girl Scouts sure do a lot with guidance from caring adult mentors! From national badge programs to council-wide events, each council offers a variety of exciting program opportunities for girls of all ages. Volunteers are supported with program level and subject training courses online and in classroom settings. There is a lot of peer-to-peer support and mentoring, and quality publications to support the delivery of high quality programs.
To locate the council nearest you, see the Girl Scout Council Finder.
