Every summer, I write a round up of all the summer products you need to keep yourself safe. At this point, everyone knows exactly what they need and it is already July. Since summer is in full swing, we all know what every beauty babe is focusing on. They are focusing on making sure their skin is protected, but also is luminous. Bare Republic is a line of mineral sunscreens that have been one of my go to's for the past few summers. Having been featured in those annual round u
Summer is coming. What that means for me is figuring out what to wear that does not turn me into a puddle. That means dresses. For me it means dresses and shape wear. I wear it for multiple reasons, to help smooth everything out: my lines and my walk. It has always been my go to.

Some say that Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer, but us teachers know the truth. The true start of summer is when the last bus pulls away or the dismissal gate is locked one last time. As I turn my alarm off and silence my work email notifications, I ease into summer mode. This means beach reads and minimal make up.

Would it replace my staple? And it did! The Sun Bum Hair Lightener Blonde Formula ($15) is part of a new hair li
I could have written this post Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer; however that would be cliched. Summer has officially started today, and today is the day you prepare yourself to have the best summer since last summer. How?

So, I am sure you have seen the commercials where women are given a free designer piece of clothing with the stipulation that they MUST spray it with deodorant. Oh, the horror that strikes their faces. I recently received said Invisible Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant ($7) from Dove and was excited to add it to my collection of spray deodorant. Why? Not for me, but for my students. In my classroom I have created a culture of hygiene. I mean I am the beauty blogger at my sc
As I am sitting here sweating, with 3 fans and an AC roaring in the middle of the first of what I can only imagine are many NYC heat waves, I am thinking about the beach, the pool, the summer of my dreams. Oh, and it happens to be the night before the L.A.S.T. D.A.Y. O.F. S.C.H.O.O.L! What better way to celebrate the end of school and the start of summer with a fresh manicure and pedicure.
