Shop “The Speranza Project” on Etsy to Help Fight Cancer

This is a sponsored post. However, all opinions are my own.

The Etsy shop The Speranza Project is helping to fight cancer. What’s better than shopping and helping a good cause?!

The Speranza Project donates 20% of its sales to a different organization that fights cancer, through research, offering financial support for families, offering personal items for patients, etc.

The shop offers hand drawn mugs, ceramics, accessories, and more! Most of the products display quotes from your favorite TV shows and books. Some are for the holidays. Popular movies and books on the site include “Harry Potter,” Doctor Who,” and John Green’s novel (and soon to be movie – yay!) “The Fault in Our Stars.” I received a mug featuring a popular “The Fault in Our Stars” quote saying, “My thoughts are stars that I cannot fathom into constellations.”

The other side of the mug featured another popular quote from the novel:

This mug is the PERFECT size! I am not a coffee drinker, but I do love hot chocolate! I cuddled up in my cheetah print snuggie, my Nook, and “The Fault in Our Stars” mug as soon as I came home from school for winter break.

As I got more engulfed in my book, the large size of the mug kept up with me as hours passed. There is nothing I find more annoying than running out of whatever you are drinking while you are all comfortable reading a great book!

The design on the mug was also very neat and professional looking. You could tell Alanna, the shop owner, had taken her time while doing this. Her patience in making it was definitely appreciated as the consumer.

For all you other book lovers out there, I recommended checking out The Speranza Project ASAP!

Clothing and other accessories are coming soon to The Speranza Project, so keep this in mind next time you are shopping. The store is definitely a place you will want to keep checking back with to help support an incredible cause!

My Monday Musts

Happy Monday, everybody!

Last week, I posted my first ever set of Monday Musts and it turned out to be a huuuge success. Yay!

Now this week, my last full week before heading back to college for my sophomore year, I have a new set of obsessions to share with you all.

And they are…..

1. “Spring Breakers” Movie

So I have been impatiently waiting to watch this movie, and I finally did! Over the weekend, my best friend and I decide to stay in and stuff our face with appetizer foods and Red Lobster biscuits, bake a cake, and watch the movie in our sweats. Now, honestly, it wasn’t what I was expecting – I mean, who would be expecting an ex- Disney Channel star and a Pretty Little Liar to be walking around shooting people with giant guns?! I’m still questioning what exactly the plot was, the accuracy of the story, and how James Franco still managed to look so attractive while looking so disgusting. However, I still managed to be obsessed with the movie and want to rewatch it over and over again. Spring break forever!

2. DSW

As I said, I move back to school next week! That means last minute shopping for clothes, dorm accessories, and of course, shoes! I really wanted a pair of black wedges to try and wear with everything for when I was going out, but since I am on a budget that meant that I couldn’t get too crazy (because I will drop a ton of money easily on a cute pair of shoes. Oops!) and be smart. That’s why I decided to go to DSW – where I could get super cute shoes for super cheap. Plus, the Shopping Gods led me right to the sale rack where I fell in love with a pair that was an extra 40% off! I managed to save over $55 on these Guess wedges – paying only $25 instead of $80. I know where I will always be going for shoes now!

3. Looking for Alaska by John Green

When I first read John Green’s novel The Fault in Our Stars when it first came out a little over a year ago, I quickly fell in love with the book, the characters, Green’s writing style, just everything about it. I kept telling myself that I had to read another John Green novel ASAP, but whenever it came time for me to download a new book on my nook – I always ended up picking a newly released novel and not just browsing for a John Green novel. This past week I finally reminded myself to download one of his books and I fell in love with this book and these characters just like I did The Fault in Our Stars. The novel follows around a wallflower, Miles, who transfers to a boarding school, Culver Creek, in order to find his “The Great Perhaps.” Culver Creek holds so much more for Miles than he could ever expect. Through every twist and turn in growing up and falling in love, Green keeps the reader so drawn in that the reader can’t help but to fall in love with the novel. It’s a must read for everybody.

This past week has been one to remember with a bunch of last minute memories to make in the summer of 2013 and was able to bring along this week’s set of Monday Musts!  I wonder what the next week will have in store for me!

Have a great week, everybody! XOXO
