8.15 | high five for friday!


…one…  we are headed back to school this week with a whole week of inservice ahead of us.  i hate inservice, but it’s nice to get back to work in a way.  i’ve been working on my classroom some this week.  i don’t do as much as elementary school teachers, but i like to make my high school room cute.  i spend most of my day there so it better look cute!  it’s kind of a mess right now, but it’s coming along.  more pics next week!


….two…  my august birchbox came yesterday.  and it was great!  i am seriously considering buying the perfume.  it is a grapefruit sandalwood blend, which is right up my alley.  it smells amazing, and it’s only $55.  the bb cream golden glow and bronzer are a little too much for me, but i think i can use them sparingly and make them work.  i think i might try adding the bb cream to my foundation and see what happens.  the mango lotion smells amazing, and it leaves my skin so soft.  i have yet to try the anti-wrinkle cream, but it smells like grapefruit too so i’m sure i’ll like it.


…three…  i’ve been struggling with my workouts lately.  i just haven’t had much motivation.  however, this week i did a decent workout each day.  they weren’t the longest or best workouts, but it was something every day.  i really think i’ll do better once school starts…

…four…  i found this song a couple of weeks ago and i just can’t quit playing it.  it’s so cute and very texan.

…five…  i was staring into my closet and i hated everything hanging in there.  so i signed up for stitch fix this week.  i am a strict budgeter so i decided to wait until last month to get my first box.   i am terrible about shopping.  i buy things i don’t even really like and second guess myself.  but i’ve been trying to invest in better pieces and things i really love.  i even made a pinterest board specifically for my stylist, as they suggested.  but i’m super excited! i’ll share my pieces when i get my first box next month. (if you have any experience with stitch fix, let me know in the comments!)

  1. I used to love my Birchbox but it seemed like they kept sending me the same thing over and over again, like hair serum. I wasnted more make-up but it looks like you got some good stuff!
    Happy Friday!

  2. It looks like a great box. I never use bronzer but after I saw birchbox talking about this particular one I really would like to try it. I’m curious about that Harvey Prince fragrance, months ago I received the Hello fragance also from Harvey Prince and I loved it!
