Renting college textbooks to save smiles!


A smile is one of the most precious things you can give to someone. A smile can instantly turn someone's terrible day to bearable. Sadly, some kids are not blessed with a confidant smile, but with a cleft lip. A cleft lip is when there is a vertical cut that goes up to the nostrils of the nose, showing teeth and bear gums. There are three different kinds of cleft lips seen below...

Then there is a cleft palate, which starts at the roof of the mouth....

Lucklly, Campus Book Rentals are here to help those in need image They are donating money to operation smile with every college textbook rented. 

Now you are wondering "Renting College Textbooks?"

With the help of Campus Books Rentals and Rent Back. You can save money and make money at the same time.

5 easy ways to help you sleep better (for insomniacs)

I do not think I ever said this, but I am a self acclaimed insomniac. I am the person who forces herself to stay  when I am dying for some shut-eye. Here are some full-proof tips to help you:)

Yes Zooey.....I could not agree more:)

Before I start, talk to me on twitter! I feel very lonely sometimes and would love some companyimage

Close your mouth: Your breathing is better regulated when you use your nose. Keeping your mouth closed also helps with less cavities! I find it hard to explain so I wrote an equation.

open mouth+breathing = dry mouth = multiplication of bacteria

I don't even need to go further because we all know whats the final outcome "cavities." So, basically I am saying close your mouth to have a smooth sleep:)

Pamper Yourself: Doing your skincare regime, brushing your teeth, and cleaning your hair! These are great ways for you to have a clam and refreshing sleep. For me it's a mental thing, I cannot go to sleep without brushing my teeth..hbu?

Pillow Mist: B and BW sells these small pillow mists in the aromatherapy section that you spray on your pillow to help you sleep. They both smell great, but it is important to spritz a little not a lot! Don't use a heavy hand because the sent is very broad, but very gentile. 

Put the Gadgets Away: Have you ever told yourself, "I'll go to sleep in 5 minute." That is probebly what you are asking yourself while on your computer, TV, or phone. When you wake-up with bags under your eyes, then you know why...It's okay I am an Insomniac too.

Eat well: Don't eat too much! You should only eat to 80% of your tum-tum. Not too much where you can't sleep, but just enough where you don't wake up for the late night munchies.

Was that a helpful post? Tell me your tips in the comments below:) 

p.s_ I am your friend, don't forget it!

Update 3: MIDTERMS!

Hello :)

I had recently gone on hiatus again......

I have been working hard on school, such as midterms. So, I will try to get my hands on my blog during the week:) I have been wondering what I should do next... 

I am actually going to put my previous blog skin on blog skins! After I update it, and make it appropriate with it's own awesome name.

Right now, I am pretty stressed with midterms! I am trying to study as hard as I can, but it is pretty hard ;_;

Have a great day, for me!

☆・:*:・゚。Best of 2012 tag。・:*:・゚☆

Hello all!

I hope you guys are having a fabulous 2013. Today I am doing the Best of 2012 tag by Macbarbie07 on YouTube. She was one of the people who inspired me to make a blog, so enjoy.

BTW, I am probably going to mention more than one product. What can I say I am a person who spreads love.....

  • Face product: Revlon Photoready Concealer (Medium Deep)- I basically use this everday to cover-up dark circles and any redness(mainly around nose). The only thing that I do not like about this product is that it contains sparkle and it can only be used around the center of my face
  • Cheek product: Mac Cremeblend Blush (Brit Wit)- This a beautiful dusty rose color. Lovely on dark skin tones, don't let the online swatch fool you. 
          Elf blush (Candid Coral)- A vibrant pink with some gold shimmer. 

  • Eye product: Marabella felt tip Eyeliner (Black) with Wetn'Wild Color Icon pencil eyeliner(Black)- This duo is my everyday (not for school). I use the Marabella eyeliner to create a wing and the base eyeliner look. Then I top it off with the Wet n' Wild Color Icon pencil to create a softer look.
  •  Lip Product: Revlon Lip Butter (Peach Parfait)- This is a lovely color for an everday look. What I love about this product is that I cannot feel the grittiness of the sparkle.
  •  Skincare Product: Clarisonic Plus (Whimsical)- My favorite product for 2012, it really cleared up my acne more than products would really do alone.
  •  Seche Vite Fast Drying Topcoat- This topcoat is probably the best topcoat ever made! It is thick enough to protect the nail, while leaving a brilliant shine. Very fast drying, the best I have tried.
  •  Hair Product: Panteen Style Smoothe Serum-I bought this a lonnng time ago, but I never got around to using it. I just squirt a little, run it through my hair, then blog dry, and bam! Shinny, silky hair....not crispy:)
  • BBW Aromatherapy Sleep Pillow Mist (Lavender Vanilla)- Smells so relaxing! I just spritz it on my pillow for a relaxing sleep.
  •  Clothing piece:Any silky tops!
  •  Accessory:Scarves, I love scarves!
  •  Pair of shoes: Any leather boots in general. I feel they are more presentable than ugg style boots.

  • Favorite TV Show/Movie: Princess Mononoke (Movie)-This will always be one of my all time favorite times. It is 8.4 on IMBD, the highest movie is rated 8.6.
  • Favorite book: I do not read....
  • Food: Apple Sauce :D
  • Beverage: Dr.Pepper
  • Favorite song: Volume up by 4minute

  3. Ella's Diaries
