Secret Santa: Gifts Under $10

This secret can’t be kept… For all of you who participate in the old tradition of the Secret Santa Gift Exchange, whether with your family, friends or coworkers consider picking up your Secret Santa present from the The Cayman Islands Humane Society Book Loft. I had a blast browsing the store for items that would make great gifts- everything is under $10. Most Secret Santa gift exchanges have a budget limit so this is a great place to go. Added bonus of Christmas cheer, all proceeds benefit the animals at the shelter. Checkout what items made the list. The Book Loft provides an array of gifts that make anyone’s eco friendly holiday gift guide.  All items were once loved by someone else, and now passed on to someone new to love them. Please support The Cayman Islands Humane Society Happy Shopping at the Book Loft! Merry Christmas! with love, from one animal lover to another, xo

Birthday Wishes, With Love xo

    On this lovely Sunday Morning, I am thankful to be celebrating another birthday.  My birthday wish this year, is more compassion and selflessness in the world.  A couple of years ago I started a tradition on my birthday, and that was donating to different charities.  The older I got, the less I was interested in presents for myself, but rather I wanted to focus on how I could give back.  God has truly blessed me, and there really are no gifts that I need, a lot of wants but no real needs.  I believe in blessing others with the blessings God has given me.  So for all of my lovely friends, and family who are reading this if you feel inspired to make a donation to one of the charities I have mentioned below in honor of my birthday please do.  It is far better that we give, even on a small scale, than to give nothing at all. Now, I would like to share with you the charities/ non-proift organizations I have …
