The #beautydistortionban Mieroglyph Giveaway!

Happy hump day, beautiful! You're halfway through your busy week and I'm halfway through my last first week of classes EVER! That's right... This time next semester I'll be starting student teaching and this time next year I'll {hopefully} have a job! {Prayers welcome and personally requested...} And in honor of our reigning victory to conclude the week, I've got a special treat for you.

Drumroll please...

It's Taxis, Tots & Polka Dots' first GIVEAWAY! 

Allow me to be blunt... I don't often accept affiliate partnerships because I run the risk of making my blog a pretty spammy place, which is the last thing I want for my site and my readers. But when Mieroglyphs contacted me with a potential partnership, I simply couldn't pass it up. {And no, I'm not getting paid to promote or write this post for them.}

The first thing that caught my attention was their mission: Goods for the good of this world. Wow. Now there's something you don't hear very often in today's twisted society. But what did they do? What did they sell? And most importantly, what did they really stand for? Were they actually promoting positivity or was it a nice little surface mission with the primary intent of growing a big business?

I contacted a brand specialist and was absolutely blown away. Mieroglyphs is a cork-leather products company, dedicated to retailing sustainably made, socially-conscious bracelets and dog collars. Each product features a unique pattern and custom made quote on the inside of the band. I love this idea, because what can be perceived as a cute little fashion statement to the rest of the world serves as a personal daily reminder for the wearer him/herself. If you struggle with beauty distortion, script the bracelet with a quote regarding self love. If you struggle with anxiety, customize it with a gentle reminder. Especially as a teacher and a writer, I don't look at a single place more often than my hand/wrist, and the daily reminder that I am more than enough for this world would be just enough encouragement to get me through my academic-stressing, gossip-hearing, coffee-spilling days.

I immediately ordered two.

I was going to customize it with my own quote (because that's another featured option that doesn't add a single cent). But when I read their stock quotes, I realized I didn't have to. One bracelet serves as a reminder for me: Be you, the rest of the world will adjust. The other serves as a reminder for my young students: Imagination is more important than knowledge. 

I did however take the time to add another bracelet to the order with the mission of my blog. I now have another bracelet that reads Song of Songs 4:7 #beautydistortionban. 

The order was processed, made, engraved, shipped, and received in a matter of only 5 days, and all information/communication regarding the order and shipping updates can be responded to via email and Facebook. Truly a brand after my own heart... I am not good at checking my personal email, but I'm always on social media.

Since receiving my two Miero bracelets, I've used them far more as a ministry and encouragement tool than anything. Yes, they're cute accessories, and yes, they go with my outfits exceedingly well. But there's nothing cooler than when someone says, "Hey, I like your bracelet!" and I can say, "Thanks! My students love it because it reminds them that creativity and imagination is more important than school and scantrons," or "Thanks! I love it because it reminds me that there's a uniquely shaped space in this world that was made just for me."

Conversation takes off. I've talked about beauty distortion. I've talked about education. And I've talked about God's love. My top three passions have been given more attention in the past few weeks than they have in months, but Mieroglyphs aren't just being gracious to me. They're being gracious to my readers.
