Frequently Asked Questions

Hi All! I've been receiving a lot of questions lately on my Instagram and through emails so I thought I would answer some of the most common questions Today! 

What grade do you teach? //
I teach First Grade in Vermont. This is probably my favorite grade to teach. They are full of so much excitement for learning at 6 years old that it makes my job so fun. I also love to read Children's book and this age group enjoys read alouds. 

How old are you? //
I am 23 years old. I was always the youngest in my class so most of my friends are almost a year older than me! 

What camera do you use? Who takes your pictures? //
All of my images are taken with a Nikon D3300 using a 35mm 1.8 lens. My Boyfriend Kyle works as a photographer as well as Real Estate agent so he takes all of my pictures- I'm lucky! 

What size do you wear? //
I wear a size small in tops and bottoms and a size 0 or 25 in denim. Sometimes I will size up to mediums in tops as I don't like my clothes very tight fitting. I always size up to a 26 in shorts- they are much more flattering when they have a looser fit!

Where do you get your nails done? //
I get my nails done at Bella Vie Nail Spa in Williston, Vermont. I can't recommend this place enough! So clean and great service. 

Any TV show recommendations? //
I'm currently watching Imposters which is a Bravo show- they have the first season on Netflix and it's so good! I'm hooked. I also started watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt- very funny! 

Where is the best place to buy designer denim? //
I like to shop for high-end denim at Nordstrom Rack. They always have the best selection of the most current styles. 

Where do you get your hair done? //
I get my hair done by Savannah at Lavish Hair Studio, you can contact her at 802-310-8681. She has been doing my hair now for 3 years after a botched coloring job, I will never go to anyone else! 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Straw Accessories for Spring

Straw has been popping up everywhere this year and the perfect time to try out this trend is with your accessories this Spring! I've put together some of my favorite accessories that won't break the bank. I remember years back when straw totes were in- they were gigantic, you could seriously fit a small TV in them! This year straw bags are coming back in styles such as small crossbody and clutches. I'd encourage you not to spend too much on these pieces as straw doesn't hold up the best- no matter how much you pay for it. Check out my picks below! To shop the items just click the images below the collage.

Thursday Thoughts

Happy Thursday & almost weekend! I hope you all had a great week! 

Things I did this week //

* I had a three day work week because we had a surprise snow day on Wednesday and an in-service Friday. The week goes by really fast when there are only three days with students! If you're a teacher you know it can get kinda tough constantly having missed school days- we still have the same amount of curriculum to teach, just in less time. 

* Reorganized my kitchen cabinets so now I have room for all of my snacks in one of them! It was stressing me out having all my granola bars and trail mix sitting on my counter. 

* Made a list of items to purchase for this Spring & my upcoming Vacation. Does anyone else love to make lists? I have an ongoing list of things on my phone that I either want or need. I'm really in need of some cute spring pants! I'm thinking some ankle length pants would be perfect. 

Things I'm doing this weekend // 

* Saturday Mani! This past time I got an OPI gel color and it has lasted SO well. I'd been using Essie gel polish prior and kept having issues with it peeling up on the edges. If you're looking for a great gel polish definitely try OPI. 

* Perusing the bookstore for a new read aloud for my classroom. Part of the reason I love teaching first grade is because I love the stories I get to read to my class. Do you have any books you remember loving when you were younger? Let me know!
What are your plans for the weekend? Anything fun?!
