My 5...Correction 6 Favorite Things- Totally Unrelated to School

This post is all about me.
Sometimes you just want to share about great products that you use and love. Here are some products or websites that I've started to use this year and have shared with friends, family and now YOU!

1. Plexus- Yes, I started taking Plexus 3 months ago. Plexus gives me lots of energy, a great mood, the ability to not get hangry in between meals and has cut of cravings for me. Before Plexus I would drink between 3-4 sodas each day. While on Plexus I've been able to cut the sodas completely out of my day. The best part of Plexus has happened this month. They have 3 new products and the one that I have experienced so far is the new Slim. It takes so good and gives so much energy! I am absolutely floored by the difference that the New Slim is making in my life.
If you'd like to try Plexus but are unsure where to start, know that I started with the Triplex

If you'd like more info about the products or are interested in ordering check out the website below and feel free to message me with questions.

2. Ok, other life-changing revelation has been this amazing bra from True and Co. The True Body V-Neck Bra. It is so comfy! No underwire and looks great with t-shirts. I appreciate that it has FREE returns and even comes with a package for you to use if mailing it back. After trying this bra on, I kid you not, I immediately called my sister to tell her. Now, that's love.  Find it HERE

3. This year, I decided I needed to splurge on my skin and find the best moisturizer for myself. I found that I really enjoy Image Skincare. Specifically, the Ageless Cleanser and Vital C Anti Aging Serum. My skin loves this stuff! I order mine on amazon, but I think you are "supposed" to buy them from a salon retailer.

4. I've had a few people recently compliment me on my make up and ask which brands I use. Well, I use a mishmash (This is a word. I googled it, just to make sure) of things. I'm always interested to see what everyone is using, so I thought I'd share the whole shebang (yes, I googled to make sure). 

Foundation- IT Cosmetics CC Cream
Concealer- Make Up Forever Full Cover
Blush/Highlighter- Smashbox Spotlight Palette
Primer for eyeshadow- Mac Prep and Prime
Eye Shadow- I like Urban Decay
Lipstick- Burt's Bees (this color is Blush Basin)
Mascara- Urban Decay Perversion

5. Erin Condren Life Planner - Erin Condren's Life Planner allows me to get excited about organization with the easy lay out and fun colors.

6. I was going to end this post with 5 things, but I just can't leave out eyebuydirect.com They have the best glasses for the outright best prices. I am questioned out in public by strangers and by my colleagues constantly about where I purchase my glasses. 
The post at the top shows me wearing their "Chilling" frames, they start at $15! Below I'm wearing their "Palette" frames (sadly, out of stock, but they started at $9!) with my teacher bestie on the last day of school. I also ordered sunglasses, but I don't have a picture yet.

I hope you've enjoyed reading about some of my favorites. I admit that some of these have referral links that I earn $10 if you use, but honestly I'd share about these products and websites with anyone regardless.

Teacher Appreciation 2017

I work at the best school ever and we are spoiled during Teacher Appreciation Week. Here's a recap:

The Friday before was Pay Day and my principals always perform a "Pay Day Song"

We each received a golden ticket to have lunch provided each day during Teacher Appreciation Week.

We were greeted by Willy Wonka (my princiapl) and an oompa loompa (assistant principal) as we entered the school the following week. 

Here was our crazy Willy Wonka Schedule for the week:

The Super Secret Staff Adventure reveal was terrific. Our principal rented the entire skating rink for us to skate and play laser tag!

During "Violent" Violet we popped balloons with scissors and found prizes on the inside. I won jeans for the rest of the school year! 

As the Media Specialist, you really don't get the Teacher Appreciation gifts from students compared to a classroom teacher, but I truly enjoyed some sweet letters and a homemade gift. 

Overall, I feel extremely appreciated!
