Recently I was given the opportunity to test out and review two different products. I have no clue how these companies found me, but I'm going to try not to be offended (lol!) since they are a teeth whitening company and a skincare company. First, I tried FRÉ Skincare. They graciously sent me their 123FRÉ … Continue reading Clear Skin and White Teeth…? Yes, please.

The differences between my first year of teaching and my second year of teaching are so dramatic that its almost insane. I honestly cannot remember how I managed to survive the stress of my first year, because now I feel like I'm floating on by! The biggest differences I've noticed are: I actually enjoy spending … Continue reading First Year vs. Second Year
First, the apology: I promised that during the summer (when I had all of this glorious, amazing, wonderful free time that is coming to a close) that I would blog more often. Well... I LIED.
