It’s been about a month since my last blog post. I’ve become the student teacher in a special needs kindergarten class, and it has consumed pretty much all of my life. I leave the house at 6:45 a.m., and I don’t get home until about 5 p.m. (It’s a +1 school, so student dismissal isn’t until 3:30). Once I’m home, I have to work on my college assignments and lesson planning – so I really don’t get any free time until about 8 p.m. I absolutely love my job, and I am so excited to teach every single morning! However, this requires a lot of energy, and for a while my excitement towards blogging faded. Continue reading “It’s Okay to Take a Break”
Whew! What a month! Between my final projects coming to a close at school, to my wisdom teeth complications (I’m getting them all taken out next week), it’s been a whirlwind of a month. A lot of things caught me off guard, but I still managed to meet my goals that I set up a few weeks ago. Let’s take a look at how things went. 🙂
When I was about 6 or 7 years old, J.K. Rowling released two Hogwarts textbooks: Quidditch through the Ages, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I was already a devout Harry Potter fan, having read The Sorcerer’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets at a young age. My favorite of the two textbooks was definitely Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I remember poring over those textbooks countless times, wishing that the mythical creatures were real and chuckling to myself over Harry’s and Ron’s notes in the page margins.

My boyfriend and I just can’t get enough of the library. We go twice a week when we’re in the area, and pick up 4-5 books each. I’ve reviewed a couple books before, but I’ve never really done a “What I’m Reading Now” post. So, I wanted to just walk you through the books I chose on this outing, and explain why I chose them. If you’ve read any of these, please let me know in the comments! Continue reading “Today’s Library Picks”
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I’m always keeping an eye out for makeup products to try. And, if you’re new to my blog and don’t know me too well; welcome! Good to have you. 🙂 Okay, so this weekend I went to Sephora to pick up a lip product or two. My trusty Colourpop lippies are finally starting to run out, and I was in dire need of something to replace them with. Once in Sephora, I was heading towards the Smashbox liquid lipsticks – but decided last minute to just stick with products from the Sephora collection. You know, to save money and all that.

Okay guys, I’m feeling the itch to buy a new book… But, after booking a plane ticket to Iceland, my wallet can’t really take a day at Barnes and Noble. I always go in expecting to buy one or two books, and I come home with 10! So, I’m going to turn to my old friend, Thriftbooks. Continue reading “Thriftbooks: The Solution for a Broke Bookworm”
Hello, lovelies! This week, I was lucky enough to receive an Estee Edit Voxbox in the mail, full of complimentary products for me to review. (Psst: If you want to find out how to get a box of your own, check out Influenster. ) I’ve tried out all the products, and I’m ready to share my thoughts.
Okay, so first up we have the item I was most excited about: the Metallisadow Creme + Powder Eyeshadow in Cyberella, which retails for $25. Continue reading “Estee Edit Voxbox Review”
