Erin Condren Teacher Lesson Planner





I have been using an Erin Condren Teacher Lesson Planner for years! It is simply the most organized and comprehensive teacher planner I have come across. But this year, it got even better. Erin Condren really listened and delivered a brand new Teacher Lesson Planner, with an updated layout and refreshed design!


How adorable is this cover? I chose the Marquee Lesson Planner with a black spiral. I added my own phrase (which I saw on Instagram somewhere) and voila! My very own personalized cover. Each teacher planner comes with a secure and stylish removable interchangeable cover. So when (if) I get sick of this one, I can switch and swap it out for a new design as often as I like. I save all of my old covers, so I have plenty of options already.


I love the changes inside too - like this one. The lesson planning pages are now predated. No more filling in all of the dates ourselves. The two-page monthly calendar spreads are predated as well. I love using these pages to track meetings, conferences, special events, and more!


This is also one of my favorite places to get really creative and add fun pops of color. The A+ Style Sticker Pad is the perfect way to do that. You get 16 pages of 1000+ stickers to transform any to-do into a stunning can do! 


You can tell that Erin Condren really listened to what teacher's needed. This is evident with the inclusion of must-haves like a communication log. It was designed to log any conflict and resolutions in the classroom. Document everything - and now we can.


I also love the planning pages that come before and after the monthly spreads. This is a great place to make plans for the month, fill out a monthly theme, plan for material to be covered, and more. When I have an idea, I just turn to these pages and jot it down. Easy peasy.


Yet another great feature is the 2018-2019 mini monthly spread at the front of the planner. I recommend using the Colorful Circles Sticker Pack to develop a color-coding system for marking school holidays and breaks. This colorful pack of translucent colorful circles allows you to easily see the big picture and make plans accordingly. 


The new layout makes so much sense! For example, now you'll see your lesson plans for the weeks of that month right behind the month. Set your intentions, see your month and then plan out those four weeks of lessons. This layout is a simple, streamlined, and effective way of viewing lesson planning and I know it will help me be my most productive self.


Are you ready to plan for your best year yet? Along with these great updates, the teacher lesson planner is also full of fun surprises like four pages of coiled in stickers (some metallic) and a dual-sided folder! Track the productivity of your students with the coiled in student checklist pages. You can always upgrade your experience with extra checklist pages, added page protectors, and of course, accessories!


One of my favorite accessories this year has been the Teacher Snap-In StylizedSticky Notes. This classroom-chic set of sticky notes includes modern takes on traditional teaching supplies like pencils and apples with metallic accents and on-trend typography! The whole set snaps right into the coils of your teacher lesson planner. I love them! Happy lesson planning teachers!

Lauren Bashawl Booty Shawl



Stylish hip wraps designed to smooth your silhouette over tights, skinny jeans, or even yoga pants? That's a Booty Shawl. From studio to street, it expands your wardrobe to include your favorite short tops making it absolutely ideal for layering.


So genius! Now you're not limited to those couple of long sweaters that cover your bits and pieces. Available in four versatile styles, you will find that Booty Shawls come in a variety of yummy textures and fabrics. I was lucky enough to try the super cute and flirty - Lauren Bashawl.


What do I love about the Lauren Bashawl? Let's start with the 4” wide, tummy-holding waistband. Yes, please. I also love the fuller-eased skirt that glides over curvier hips. Her slightly flared skirt crosses over on the left leg for flirty, flouncy entrances and exits. Pocket? Absolutely. Lauren’s got an integrated pocket in the waistband that secretly holds your valuables.


You can pair Lauren Bashawl with boots and a jacket for a business edgy look. Or you can take it up a notch for a night out with heels and a blouse. So versatile, try pairing Lauren with a pair of yoga leggings to take your look from class to sass.


I chose the Lauren Bashawl in lightweight black burnout. I love the camo look and this goes with so many things! I wore it all summer long and I am most definitely going to take Lauren with me into fall.


How much do you love the Booty Shawl? Which style is your favorite? With so many style possibilities, I wonder which Boot Shawl I will choose next?

CrapChute Parachute Fabric Bags


CrapChute Bags combine the strength of parachute materials with handy collapsible bags for everyday use. This versatile, light-weight, resilient and incredibly strong catch-all bag is perfect for - well basically whatever you need it for. Take it to the beach, take it to the market, take it to the park, use it as a diaper bag, use it as a wet bag, use it to garden - it is your go-to bag.


The Hand Bag is lightweight, made with a ripstop weave, and will hold a massive load. Like up to 100 lbs massive. This means you can hold a bunch of gear or groceries with only one bag! It folds up into a little pouch you can easily take with you. Then when you are ready to stuff it, just open it up and stuff your "crap" in it. Pun intended.


The Shoulder Bag holds the same amount of stuff but just has a different handle design. Either style you choose features two usable pockets and folds into itself! These handcrafted parachute fabric bags are perfect for your everyday adventures.


Features I love the most? It folds into the attached pocket, it holds up to 100 lbs of stuff, it is made of mildew and water resistant fabric, the parachute fabric also resists tearing, and of course the two convenient pockets! I like to keep a CrapChute Bag with me at all times - in my car, my handbag, my beach bag, my school bag - you just never know when you need that extra bag to stuff your crap in.

Joriki Ikat Yoga Legging


The Ikat Ombre High Waist Legging is both beautiful and comfortable. I received a pair of these leggings featuring an ultra-high five-inch waistband to try. I love them! The thick waistband gives this legging a flattering, modern silhouette. The colorful design was inspired by Ikat textiles native to Sumba Island, Indonesia.


Perhaps what I love most about this yoga legging is the soft, breathable material. It keeps you comfortable wherever and whenever you slip these cozy babies on. You can even keep your valuables safe in a convenient inside front pocket!


Practicing yoga provides a lot of benefits - physical strength, better balance, a sense of well-being and a feeling of empowerment, to name a few. But when you wear Joriki Yoga Apparel, you’re getting more than just a feeling of empowerment, you’re actually empowering the less advantaged around the world.


A percentage of sales from the Sumba Warrior line goes directly to The Sumba Foundation. The foundation is deeply committed to lessening the consequences of poverty on the island of Sumba by fostering village-based projects that impact health, education, water, and income-generation. All of this is done while preserving and respecting the fragile culture and traditions of the Sumbanese people. So as if you needed another reason to try a Joriki Yoga Legging - there you go!

Loving Lately


The end of summer vacation? Nooo! This teacher is bummed. But I still have some things I have been loving lately to share with you. Check out this month's picks!


The ultimate in lip butter goodness, Korres Lip Butter is a rich, buttery lip balm that melts on the lips and offers a shiny, tinted finish. Formulated with natural oils and extracts, these lip butters soothe and condition lips. Shea butter and rice wax provide lasting hydration and softness. 


The color payoff is subtle, yet just enough to give you a sweet pout. Choose from several shiny, juicy pops of color in an array of flavors. Keep one of these handy to treat dry lips.


Image Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque features a natural enzyme that exfoliates to dissolve dead skin cells, boost radiance, and brighten dull skin. This hydrating masque infuses the skin with antioxidants and vitamins that nourish. Retinyl palmitate revitalizes and helps to brighten sun-damaged skin. 


Hyaluronic acid deeply hydrates and plumps to give the skin a youthful, dewy glow. Apply liberally to cleansed skin for 5-30 minutes then rinse. Vital C will rejuvenate the skin and provide essential moisture to thirsty skin.


Iluma is a hydrating eye cream that improves the look of dark circles, puffiness, crow’s feet and lax skin. If you want to restore a well-rested, radiant appearance to the eyes, this is my pick. Apply morning and evening by patting a pea-sized amount to upper and lower eyelids and around the eye area.


Powered by a dark circle fighting peptide, this crème includes a blend of phytonutrients, antioxidants, and botanical brighteners. Patented tripeptide and tetrapeptide technologies support collagen and help to improve firmness. While apple stem cells reduce the appearance of fine lines.


My next choice is a natural resurfacing face mask powered by glycolic acid and pomegranate grains and extracts to purify and minimize the appearance of pores. The Pomegranate AHA & Enzymes Resurfacing Mask is packed with 27.5 percent AHAs/BHAs and active natural skin resurfacers for glowing, pore-less skin. 


Pomegranate grains exfoliate, while glycolic acid and enzymes peel away dead skin cells. White clay and white willow bark extract, both rich in salicylic acid, remove excess sebum and refine pores. The mask exfoliates in three distinct ways: mechanical, chemical, and enzymatic. It balances excess sebum, minimizes the appearance of pores, and improves skin texture. My complexion loves this resurfacing mask!


Fizz & Bubble Watermelon Lip Scrub is a fun and fresh take on the summertime treat! Get luscious lips at your fingertips with this all-natural hydrating and exfoliating lip scrub that includes shea butter, avocado oil, and vitamin E.


Just take a small amount of lip scrub and gently massage into your lips. You don't even have to rinse! You can just lick off the sugar to reveal soft, supple lips! It smells so juicy and delicious too!


Affordable, creamy, and long-lasting, I have been loving the Beauty for Real I-Line 24/7 Eyeliner. This cruelty-free, waterproof eyeliner delivers intense 24-hour wearable color. The unique formula, with conditioning Vitamin E, provides a versatile application for flawless, precise lines.


I have been using the shade Whiskey, a shimmery brown. The application is so smooth with no skipping. Plus it stays on even in the hottest summer sun! Any of the pigment-rich shades will make a statement with an instant color payoff. 


Pairing perfectly with the eyeliner is Rimmel London Wonder'fully Real Mascara‎. This keratin-infused volumizing mascara thickens and lengthens each lash. Whether you're keeping your look natural and subtle by only swiping this on for the day or are adding to a full face of makeup for a more dramatic finish, it's must-have.


I love the brush which glides through my lashes with no clumping. It separates and defines and gives you the option to build it up as much or as little as you desire. 


Finally, Veise Dream Serum was originally developed to fade hyperpigmentation, which is why I wanted to give it a try! This dream serum can assist with acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and even dehydrated skin. It harnesses the power of hyaluronic acid to give you hydrated, supple, soft, radiant skin that fights blemish-causing bacteria and helps even skin tone.


Dream Serum also contains lactobacillus which has been shown to produce antimicrobial peptides which can enhance the natural antimicrobial properties of the skin. Koic Acid helps to even your skin tone, while Vitamin C helps to brighten your complexion. All while providing protection against free radicals and environmental pollutants.
