Give the gift of Campus Book Rentals and Create Smiles, too!

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post for Campus Book Rentals but all opinions are my own - Thank you!

I have spoken to you previously about Campus Book Rentals and bring them to you once more as their service really is one I believe you can benefit from both in pocket and mind, all while giving a little back to someone in need at the very same time!

As most of us know, college courses are painfully expensive and the costs keep mounting as we sweep lists for necessary book titles come rolling in every semester demanding big bucks from your wallet, even though yu will probably never open those books again once that particular course is over!

Well, Campus Book Rentals have come up with the perfect solution and have devised a simple, yet clever solution for all of your text book needs and, better still, they want to bring this solution right to your door!

Designed in such a way as to make the acquisition of text books easy and affordable, with anything from a 40-90% savings on the average cost of any materials, Campus Book Rentals offers up one of the largest selections of books in the nation AND Shipping is FREE - BOTH WAYS!

On top of the discounted prices, each book you borrow can be held for a prolonged period of [set] time and you are given a rather generous 15 day grace period in which to return the book if something comes up that hinders the return of the text in a timely fashion! Just hold on to the book for the duration of your semester (or however long you need - prices vary) then pack it up and send it right back! No fuss, no mess and no books gathering dust on your mantle for years to come!

Campus Book Rentals allows you to:

* Have access to live customer support
* Highlight within each text book
* Purchase your books, should you decide that you would like to keep them!

By clicking HERE, you can shimmy on over to Campus Book Rental's website and compare prices of rentals to purchased books! The differences can be huge price-wise and really save you that costly dent in your wallet every time you have to pick up something new for your studies!

The added bonus to Campus Book Rentals is that they also contribute donations to Operation Smile every time you rent a textbook!

Operation Smile is a great cause that puts smiles back on the faces of children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and/or palette and so, by renting with Campus Book Rentals, you are also passing along the savings in the form of a child's happiness and a wonderful smile! What could truly be better than that! You can find out more about Operation Smile, HERE!

For a closer look at Campus Book Rentals, take a loo at the video below, or head on over to their website to find out more! I know that once you get started with their system, you will never want to buy again!

Don't forget about, too! allows you to rent out YOUR OWN books to other students in the same way that you would rent books out from Campus Book Rentals! You may even get up to 2 or 4 times more money in your pocket [renting] than from selling your text books alone. 

To find out more about Rent, take a look HERE and start those savings, today! 

So what are you waiting for!?

Happy renting, happy lending and a happy wallet too - also makes for a great gift this Christmas as you can purchase credit for your loved one, too!

Mantry is the subscribtion box your man is going to love, this holiday season!

Disclaimer: I was able to try out a month subscription box from Mantry in order to provide this review. My views are my own and yours may differ! Thank you!
If you have no idea what to get the men in further than Mantry! is the ultimate in food subscription boxes for men, which you can sign up to for a month or longer, which is then delivered right to your door in a manly wooden crate!
In this box, which is aptly named the "Salty Dog",  I received Bar Harbor Clam Chowder, Island Trollers Wild Pacific Albacore Jalapeno Tuna, Butter and Pure Ocean Sea Salt Halfpops, Liddabit Sweets Sea Salt Caramel, Coop's Micro Creamery: Hot Fudge and White Whale Cocktails: The Filthy Liar.
Personally, I think that this box is amazing and Mantry have gone all out to search around the country for goodies that your man (and you) will LOVE to try! They gather, pack, ship and deliver and take all of the work away from you, leaving you the time to taste, talk about and share the end result!
Hot favorites from this particular box were the Liddabit Sweets and the Jalapeno Albacore, though all went down very nicely and not a single item in the box was any disappointment at all! There was even a menu included with the goodies to let us know exactly where and who they came from, making it that touch sweeter if we want to go out and buy some more! Nice!
The cost of the Mantry boxes are $75 and up, which isn't bad considering the products are sourced in America, from quality companies and with quality ingredients within treats and delights you may never have found had you gone it alone!
A mouthwatering box of deliciousness is waiting to wing its way to you, today, and you can check out more information on the subscription AND the various costs by heading to! Want to see the loot before you get involved? Then why not follow Mantry on Twitter and Facebook, too!!

Here is a great, simple gift to add to your list this season from, which is a solution to the every-growing problem produced by discarded plastic bottles [and other plastics amounting to produce so called plastic islands] and their longstanding impact on the environment.
The Retap bottle, released in 2010, is designed specifically for drinking tap water and is elegantly designed for everyday use and longevity! 

Available in several different sizes, I had the chance to try out a medium and large bottle, with a green lid on one and red for the other, which you can pick and choose to your hearts desire! If you would like an  orange top, they've got you covered! Prefer orange, yellow, black [or others], then they've got you there, too!
If you want to add a sleeve to your bottle, or mix and match with spare lids, then this is as easy as hopping onto their website and placing them in your cart! Once you pay, your bottles will be shipped right to your door!

Not only can you order these fabulous bottles, which are comfortable to use, thick enough to feel sturdy and fun enough for everyday, but you can also have them customized with a brand logo or text to promote a sentiment or business, which means that these also make great company products to disperse amidst employees or friends! The Retap bottle really is the gift that keeps on giving!
If you would like to find out more about these bottles, just head over HERE! You can also follow Retap on Twitter and Facebook to stay up to date with their products and progress!
So what are you waiting for? Drink up and save waste, today!

The Best in Comfort and Style from KidOFit Shoes! Review AND Giveaway! Ends 12/26/14

Disclaimer: I was provided with a pair of shoes in order to perform this review and give my honest opinion. I was not otherwise compensated and all thoughts are my own, thank you!

One of the most important things you could buy for your children as they develop [through any stage] is a good pair of SHOES and when it comes to the best, KidOFit really have raised the bar!

Not only are KidOFit shoes beautifully designed and a real treat to look at, but they are comfortable, good fitting and healthily designed for the best feel and use, while brightening up those tootsies at any occassion!

I received a pair of high topped shoes (Tulip) from KidOFit this past week and I was impressed with them before I even opened the box! The presetation of the shoes in their cute little box, neatly wrapped with tissue paper made them feel very special and my daughter was excited to get to the shoes!

The shoes, which are purple colored high-top shoes, with a pretty floral embellishement on the easy to use strap closure!

Inside the box, alongside the shoes, comes 2 sets of inserts, which are designed to make the fit of the shoe much better by either using 1 insole or the other, which provide a slightly different fit, OR both insoles together for a third fit all-together!

My daughter is a size 8 to 8.5 and so I ordered the 8.5 and we used both inserts inside the shoe to make them a nice, cozy fit!

This particular design is so pretty that they can dress up an outfit for an occassion or be worn every day as a well-fitting, practical-yet-pretty shoe! KidOFit shoes also have a Baefoot Sole™ design with a unique, thin, flexible TPU for natural motion akin to walking with bare-feet!

KidOFit shoes do not stop there, either! The soles of these shoes have a clear design so that it is easy to see where the child's feet/toes land at the end of the shoes to make sure that they have a properly fitting shoe! They also have a wide-fitting shape to allow for natural foot function and wiggle room for those tootsies!

Overall I am so thoroughlly impressed by these shoes and feel that they are so worth the money you pay to buy them! They are just the sweetest pair of shoes and my daughter has wanted to wear them daily since they arrived - they are so easy for her to put on and offer by herself, which promotes her independant streak and they compliment many of her dresses for a party look or her pants for an every-day play-at-he-park feel, too!

If you would like to check out these shoes, and more on offer from KidOFit, then just head on over to their website HERE! You can also follow KidOFit on twitter [@kidofit] and Facebook, HERE, too!
