YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME


This morning I seen a story about Abercrombie & Fitchs new padded swimwear for little girls..we are talking girls the ages of 7-12....are you kidding me with this???? I realize that this brand has become popular by sexualizing young people....and Im not one that agrees with that either but now for girls of this age..I truly feel they have gone too far!!! There is no reason that a young girl needs to be wearing a so called "push-up" bikini.....what is this world coming to???? What ever happened to letting girls just be girls and allowing them to grow up slowly.....why are we insisting on making them grow up so fast..or having them see them self sexually at such a young age....or feel that they shouldn't just be proud of who they are without coming up with something as ridiculous as push-up swimwear. Oh let me state they did decide to remove the word push-up in their advertising and just use padded instead...yeah that makes me feel a whole lot better!!! I don't know about you but I find this completely despicable!!!!
Children's lives are being polluted by pressure and a false perception of beauty. Being manipulated in this way, by things such as media and fashion can lead to less obvious effects, such as, damaged self esteem and lack of confidence. I'm sure this wasn't intended when the "push-up" swimwear was being designed. However, I believe people in the industry should have thought twice before letting a product such as this go ahead and be made and sold. I just hope there are enough parents out there that feel the same way as I do.

HELP JAKEY

As you know we sell online...we are doing this from one of our stores in an effort to help out this little guy fulfill his wish!!!



Jake has an aggressive form of cancer called Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma.

One of the things that makes Jake happy is helping others. That’s pretty awesome. He is so loving and caring that he wants to make other kids who are sick feel better, despite feeling sick himself. Jake has been taking his dinosaur Pillow Pet plush animal with him when he goes to the hospital to take his medicine. Jake and his mom thought that every child at Riley would like a cuddly pal to hug when the medicine they’re taking makes them feel so yucky and when the doctors start using some frightening words. So, Jake decided he would make sure every child at Riley Hospital would get a Pillow Pet.

Jake’s goal is to collect 1,000 Pillow Pets by the end of this month...and we want to help him do that....if you purchase a pillow pet from us and have us send it to the collection center in Carmel Indiana (we have the address) we will give you a 20% discount on any of the Pillow pets we have....AND if you would like one for your own child we will give you the same discount of 20%...just enter code helpjake during checkout!!!


ONLY TAKING ORDERS UNTIL MARCH 26th SO I CAN GET THEM ALL MAILED BEFORE THE END OF THE MONTH…I WILL INCLUDE A NOTE FROM YOU STATING YOU DONATED THE PILLOW PET!!!

broken inside


Here I lie,
Broken Inside,
Nowhere to go,
Nowhere to hide.

I'm left here all alone,
With no one by my side.
All I do is sit here and cry,
I'm so broken inside.

Too many problems,
Too many tears.
I'm bleeding blood and crying tears.
Unbearable pain, through all of these years.

No one in my life,
Really seems to care,
They go throughout their day,
Hardly noticing I'm here.

I'm alone in this world,
With nowhere to go,
Filled with so much sadness,
No one will ever know.

You can read it on my face,
You can see it in my eyes,
But no one ever takes the time to notice,
I'm broken inside.

Lost inside myself


Right now in my life....nothing is making sense anymore....I feel like people always use me...they take advantage of my kind heart and suck away everything I have.....I tell myself Im going to just stop trying to help people, Im going to stop giving so much of myself...and yet I continue to do it...and now I feel lost...and it makes me feel bitter and yet I have no one but myself to blame..because for whatever reason I feel it is my place to fix everyone that comes running to me...and yet I cant even fix myself!!!

a positive thought


"Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can't change. Kiss slowly, play hard, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything and have no regrets. Life's too short to be anything…but happy."
