When all hope is gone, how do you survive?
Before the war, Eden’s life was easy—air conditioning, ice cream, long days at the beach. Then the revolution happened, and everything changed.
Now a powerful group called the Wolfpack controls the earth and its resources. Eden has lost everything to them. They killed her family and her friends, destroyed her home, and imprisoned her. But Eden refuses to die by their hands. She knows the coordinates to the only neutral ground left in the world, a place called Sanctuary Island, and she is desperate to escape to its shores.
Eden finally reaches the island and meets others resistant to the Wolves—but the solace is short-lived when one of Eden’s new friends goes missing. Braving the jungle in search of their lost ally, they quickly discover Sanctuary is filled with lethal traps and an enemy they never expected.

You will be able to find them below with the schedule of the survivor week as well as a graphic quote card that you will have to share in order to win these amazing giveaways!
Our stop today is the “Fashionable Survivor” Post!
Who loves fashion?!
Usually, when we’re hanging out with friends, someone asks “If you were alone on a deserted island what would you bring with you?” This question is often followed by “What books would you take with you?”, “Who would you want to be with?” or “What would you do?”
To be honest, we don´t have an exact answer for this, for some reason, it always changes, ALWAYS. But then we asked ourselves, “What clothes would you bring to an island?” What would YOU guys bring? If we ended up on an island survival or not. We think of the perfect clothes and accessories. Without further ado, we present to you the Fashionable Survivor guide! Because what else hee-hee!
We have here is a Serious part of the survivor guide
We’ve all seen the movies and the shows on how to survive. I give credit to people that do this for a living. The Survivorman (Les Stroud) is an Experienced Survival Adventurer, He Demonstrates True Survival Techniques and not to Take mother nature for granted. If I were stranded on a deserted island I could survive for a Few weeks, that’s if I had the supplies. Without them I don’t know… maybe a week haha.
Trying to get that Perfect tan and not turn Lobster doing it.
Granted this really isn’t surviving the wild, But it’s still survival. Surviving the Beach, One of the various sections of the island. I can’t possibly tell you how many times I got burned or lost things at the beach. When I headed out to the beach I don’t think of the mishaps that are going to accrue. What’s on my Mind is “Can’t wait to enjoy the day at the beach, “work on getting a tan” and “Finally get some quality book time at the beach”. (You know I had to add a bit of booknerdiness) It can also turn to be a Nightmare hopefully, these survivor guides will help you.
The perfect date
Let’s not forget “The perfect island date night”. Being on an island with someone you care about, at twilight walking, looking over the horizon, Feeling the breeze in your face and hair, Taking in the salty air and feeling the warming sensation through your skin. You want to be comfortable, you want to be carefree and get the most out of the experience. I hope you all enjoyed our fashionable survivor guides. You seriously don’t have to take them as a guide. I’m not a professional, only someone that’s been there, done that.
