What would you buy with a gift certificate to Fred Flare?

25 Mar

The kindness and generosity of those involved in the blogopshere never ceases to amaze me. The other day, I sent e-mails to people, blogs, and businesses whom I had recently featured on my blog, as I routinely do. To my amazement, I received an e-mail response from Fred Flare which included a $10 gift certificate to spend on their website as a thank you. So now the question is… what should I get???? Here are some of the cute goodies I’m contemplating:

These adorable Elephant earrings are only $10!

I’ve become a little obsessed with feathers recently and this necklace is just darling… and also $10 :)

Interesting fact about me: I have an odd collection of unusual sleep masks… blame the desert sunrise. $14.

My minor is creative writing and I would love to flip through this novel writing kit! Especially since I’m taking screen writing next semester… $20.

Don’t you just love these? What would you select? Help!

Bisous,
Rachel

Website I love: Paperback Swap

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, the classic romance novel I selected for reading this week while cruising through the Virgin Islands.

By now we all know how much I love a) things that don’t cost a lot of money, and b) things that make my life easier. Well today I’d like to tell you about a website that does both: Paperback Swap. Karma is essentially the currency on this website, which allows you to request other people’s recently read books for free, under the assumption that you will send people paperbacks you are through with. When you sign up (for free, of course) and list 10 books you’re ready to get rid of, you’ll start out with your first two credits to request other books. When someone requests one of your books, you pay the shipping, and when you request a book that person will pay the shipping for you in return. Continue reading

Website I Love: Bloglovin’

23 Sep

bloglovin

I have a confession: I am addicted to blogs. I have been reading and following many blogs almost religiously for well over a year now. Not only can checking each website on a daily basis get time consuming, but it can also be a bit tedious to go through my bookmarks and make sure I get to everything. Enter bloglovin; http://www.bloglovin.com is a handy website that manages all the blogs you follow and transports all of their latest posts to a facebook-like news feed of sorts. Continue reading
