Schoola Promo: 50% off at Schoola!

If you've read this blog before, you know that I love thrifting! While I do buy a number of items at Goodwill and other local resale shops, I also really enjoy thrifting online. I've gotten some great things at Schoola lately - including my polka dot chambray, tan cardigan, and khaki Pixie pants. My daughter also has a number of Schoola items in her wardrobe, mostly dance tops from Justice. :)

I wanted to share about a great Schoola promo going on right now! You can get 50% off plus free shipping with the code SPRINGBRK. My affiliate link is above and you can also get $20 to use at Schoola if you sign up and make a purchase using my link and haven't purchased through them before!

Have you ever shopped at Schoola before? Any favorite purchases?

Book Review: Whatever is Lovely: A Coloring Book for Reflection and Worship

We've all seen how popular adult coloring is these days! A couple of months back, I had the opportunity to review the coloring book Whatever is Lovely: A Coloring Book for Reflection and Worship. The book is beautiful. It contains a variety of lovely pages that are based on Bible verses, hymns, inspirational quotes and more. The book is a larger size, approximately 9.5" square. Designs include animals, flowers, trees, geometrics, and more. The pages would be lovely framed once they are colored. I have to be honest; I am not much of a color-er. :) I gave this a try and while coloring is not my favorite thing, my mother really enjoys it, so I will be gifting her this book. I only colored on one of the pages.

I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for this review; all opinions are my own.
