Who Do You Want to Be? Back-to-School with Warby Parker 
College is one of the few opportunities where you get to create your identity. Who do you want to be? Small town kid sampling life in the big city? Shy, self-conscious bookworm trying to get through the year? This is your time to step up and take charge of how the world sees you, not to mention how you affect the world, and if you wear glasses, you should look into Warby Parker

Warby Parker is a globally-minded, trend-setting eyewear company that is changing the way the world sees glasses. Their ultra-hip eyewear is popping up on celebrity Instagram feeds and getting noticed in fashion circles. (Check out the Karlie Kloss x Warby Parker Collaboration.) Warby Parker frames are sourced from sustainable materials and manufactured by family companies. For every pair purchased (and they are all absolutely affordable), they give a pair of their own eyeglasses to VisionSpring, a a charity that trains people in low-income communities around the world to conduct eye exams and set up businesses selling glasses for a few bucks a piece. They have already donated over a million pairs. And,they have a Home Try-On program where you pick five styles online that you like, they send them to you, you try them on, pick out your favorite for purchase online and return your samples… the entire home-try-on program is FREE! Warby Parker cares about eyewear, cares about the planet and cares about you.

So, when you return to school this year, who would you like to be? The self-indulgent adolescent who looks as if they’ve stepped from the pages of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or the mindful, young adult ready to take on the world Clark Kent-style? Let Warby Parker help you choose.

What if...? by Jessica Barondes

The Buzz About the Book

What if…? is a bittersweet and sometimes comical tale of a tween girl, P, who must come to terms with the loss of her mother as she navigates the world of dating, puberty, school, and friendships. P will absolutely warm your heart and the ending is guaranteed to leave you teary-eyed. While I sometimes felt that the themes were more appropriate for teens, I also came to realize that tween girls will also really enjoy reading about the world that they are just on the cusp of entering. *shudder* Ages 10+.” ~ Renee @ Mother Daughter Book Reviews

“What a treat to fall in love with a character from the first second you begin to read her story. P has wit, charm, pluck, charisma–and a lot of things to learn. I totally loved her voice, world, friends and the many ways in which she drove her father Georgy insane. Full of laughs and love this charming book is a wonderful read–no matter what your age.” ~ 5 Star Review, Blue, Amazon

“This is a charming and delightful read from start to finish, filled with characters you really care about, especially the unique girl “P” at the center. You don’t have to be in this age group or life situation to relate to the sweet and heartfelt story about wanting the best for those you love. It’s timeless and inspiring and may bring a tear to your eye!” ~ 5 Star Review, Susan A., Amazon

“Witty, intelligent and edgy coming-of-age book for girls (and parents!). This little book is a real gem. I bought it for my nieces too in hopes that they will appreciate their moms more! (and give their dads a chance to be a true hero, like the dad in this book!) I would bet that school libraries, teachers, parents and girls will rate this book a favorite for years to come.” ~ 5 Star Review, Louann B., Amazon

“I was absolutely enchanted from the first page. This book made me cry! It was delightful. The story so sweet and the characters endearing and so real. By the time I got to the end, I just wanted to burst out in applause. This book is a joy to read at any age but perfect for the “tween” reader.” ~ 5 Star Review, Jen W., Amazon

“Both my 11-year old daughter and I loved this wonderfully written book. Charming and exciting from beginning to end, this book is a real treasure.” ~ 5 Star Review, Susan L., Amazon

Surprise Ride Subscription Box Giveaway

 

Welcome to the Surprise Ride Subscription Box Giveaway

Hosted by Miss Frugal Mommy & Sponsored by Surprise Ride

About Surprise Ride

“The idea for Surprise Ride came when we, sisters and aunts of two active and curious boys, struggled to find unique gifts that would add value to our nephews’ lives. Having experienced tremendous economic hardship during our own childhood, we remembered a simpler time when what we enjoyed most as kids was getting immersed in activities with siblings and parents. We were fortunate to have a dad who was an artist by profession and facilitated DIY activities. He always encouraged us to bring our imaginations to life. Those projects shaped who we are and our view of the world. We want to help busy parents give their kids that same opportunity to evolve through play. Surprise Ride was born from the desire to have a lasting impact on the lives of children, beyond the latest toy or video game.”
