For today's first mini-challenge, we're going to be doing a Mash-Up. We're asking you to mash-up your bookish life with a non-bookish hobby or passion or talent! I'm going to be touching on two of my favorite things - travel and shopping. In each collage, I've included one book, one travel photo and one item that reminds me of the book!

Unbreak My Heart || TRIP: Boracay, Philippines 2009 || Sailboat Charm Bangle

Anna and the French Kiss || In Bonjour Dreams Pillowcase Set || TRIP: Mel, Paris, France 2011

Eon: Dragoneye Reborn || Brave Reviews Flat || TRIP: Japan, April 2009

Brooklyn Girls || Postcard from New York top || TRIP: Brooklyn Bridge, New York, 2013

Unleashing Mr. Darcy || TRIP: Bacolod City, Philippines, 2012 || A Doggone Good Morning Mug

For Darkness Shows the Stars || Galaxy You Later Night Light || TRIP: New York, 2013 (Mel's post)

Stealing Parker || New York Yankees Cap Logo Charm Bangle || TRIP: Yankees Stadium, New York, 2011

Wanderlove || Meet Your Map Bookends || TRIP: Phuket, Thailand, 2009

Reunited || TRIP: Boracay, Philippines, 2010 || The Busk Stops Here Turntable

Drama || Lights, Glam-era, Action! Lamp || TRIP: New York, 2011

Hope you guys enjoyed checking out these collages! I've included individual links in the captions, but generally the items you can buy are from Alex & Ani or Modcloth. I can't wait to see what you all come up with and celebrate the other passions we have apart from books!
