Fifty Shades Of Grey - Trailer





It's finally here! The teaser trailer of the much anticipated triology Fifty Shades of Grey!

I am still not completely sold on Dakota Johnson playing Ana Steele but I guess I will have to go and see the movie my self to see if she pulled it off or not! :) Who's going to see it this February?!

And I read that Beyonce re-recorded her song in this version just for the movie specifically! She makes it fit with the movie so perfectly!




The time you move across country for a job, only to turn around and go right back to where you started...

Without getting into to much detail, I am just writing a small update-- to get my feelings about the lastest events going on my life.

My husband recently took a job that moved us across country, only to arrive and have it "not work out" to simply put it. (I can't give much detail on it, as we are probably going to take legal action regarding the events) 

Our home in Phoenix never sold, so we have somewhere to go home to, and thankfully my husband's previous job are rehiring him back. 

As for me and my job, I am not so lucky, and was recently told by my former Principal that he filled my spot only a mere few days ago. I was devastated to say the least. 

Right now most slots for teaching have been filled, and I am probably going to be job less when school resumes. Not a good feeling. I can sub, at least that will bring in something, but the downside of course is that most teachers don't miss any school till Nov/Dec! 

Prayers and positive thoughts are much needed and welcomed. 


If any of you are in Arizona, and know someone who knows someone who is a Principal that needs an art teacher, don't hesitate to give them my name! Obviously my blog showcases much of my student's work and achievements! 

I know there is the old saying "Everything happens for a reason" and it will all work out, but I am terrified at the moment, simply because I have always had a teaching job for 9 years! 



So long Arizona, Hello Ohio!



we-moved

After 9 glorious years in AZ, my husband has taken a job relocating us back to his home state of Ohio. Oh Ohio. We have such a love hate relationship. Sans Snow. Sans humidity. Sans many overcast days. I thought long ago to myself "Hey I did my time 4/1/2 years of college here was plenty!" Eh wrong! Somewhere into the journey of growing up, having my own job, getting married, being a fur momma (and all other adult responsibilities that come along with it) I got the gentle reminder about family and how important it is to have family around you.

By relocating back to Ohio, my hubby is able to be reunited with his family, and what is now my family! I've always been a loner with my folks not living in AZ and my brother also living in a different state, I've never given to much thought as to not having family around me. I thought it was normal. As we age, and in hopes of starting our own family, we knew that having family around needed to happen. The good thing if my hubby and his career in the medical field is his ability to bounce around pretty easily. Me in the teaching career however is not so easy!!

I've already taken all the necessary steps into getting my teaching certificate to transfer over, but finding the job bit esp as a special area teacher is no easy task! 

I don't know how many readers I have in the Cleveland area, but if any of you know of an opening for an art teacher, please let me know! It's very difficult to get a leg up when I am an outsider coming in to this city. I think all my posts and pictures on my blog speak for my integrity and passion I have for my job! :) 




Just call her the ninja hula hooper





If you haven't seen this already, you MUST check out this Ohio girl named Rachel Lust she has MAD SKILLS at hula hooping! Hula hooping is a great core work out for your abs along with a great cardio work out! The music she has in this video is SICK! Very catchy and good to work out to! 

Last Post

If you follow me on instagram, I made the annoucement that I have officially decided to shut down the blog. ( At least for now!) 
 Well, upon making that decision, I had people emailing me left and right saying they couldn't find "pins" from pinterest from my blog etc etc since I had "deleted" the blog! I know how frustrating that can be esp if you are a teacher trying to find directions or info on a potential art lesson and then wham! The picture is a dead end. So rather than cause frustrated teachers who apparently still view my blog every now and again for art ideas, I "undeleted" it, but am letting most of you fellow bloggers know I won't really be updating it anymore. 

What was once fun 4 years ago (blogging) isn't really all that fun anymore and has really died down compared to other social media outlets that are all the rage these days. 

So, for all you fellow art teachers that do follow me, I will still continue to upload all my art photos to my flickr account so you can find them there. As for all you bloggers/twitter peeps, you can still find me on instagram. 

The beauty of instagram is that it's short and sweet and to the point. Picture plus caption. That's really a shortened form of blogging these days anyway. 



Let It Go

If you have kids, you are probably "Frozened" out! Or, if you are an educator like me, you can also recite the words from the replay button in your classroom due to the overplaying of the soundtrack during art lessons! 

I found this a month ago and forgot to share, but this man has some serious talent! 


Makes you feel like if they ever wanted a sequel and an actor couldn't make it to fill in their voice they could totally hire this guy! 

The guy? Brian Hull is actually just 22 years old and is a vocal performance student! I'd say he has a bright future as an impersonator! 

American Blogger

I haven't been on facebook a ton lately, (can you blame me!?! Everyone is pregnant or knocked up or on kid 2,3, or 4!)  but I did log in and see a friend post the trailer to Chris Weigand's American Blogger documentary.

As I scrolled down to read the over abundant comments, I couldn't help but shake my head in disgrace. TONS of women were BASHING the women that were "chosen" to be in the documentary. Basically saying all the women weren't "real" women or "barbies" and real women bloggers don't look like that.
See for youself 
Exhibit A (Haters)




Are you serious? I couldn't believe it. All I gathered from it was your typical HS drama of girls being jealous of other girls. Girls being jealous that they weren't "picked" to be interviewed. Girls being angry at other women of having overly clean and neat houses. One comment I read of someone being pissed that they chose all RICH people. Are you kidding me?! Ladies! Retract those claws! You are an embarrassment to blogging if that's the kind of attitude you have!

Here's the trailer below. I personally am quite excited to watch it in June, and think Casey and her husband are good people. When are we going to learn to not be so judgemental of each other? Oh wait, that's right, never. Merica' people. Gotta love it. (sarcasm)




Watch it. Thoughts? 

Pharrell - Happy (Puppy & Doggy Version)







For all you dog lovers out there and lovers of Pharrell Williams "Happy" song this one's for you! :) 

I heart Kristen Bell aka Veronica Mars

One might ask, did you do anything for your spring break? And my response would be yep, sure did-Watched all 3 seasons of Veronica Mars starring one of my girl crushes Kristen Bell.

I was sucked in from the moment I started this show. The love affair between Duncan and Veronica the potential of them being half brother and sister...the death of her best friend her best friend's boy friend and his crazy life. What could one not love about this show!? 

So I finally made it to the theater to see the movie. I just had to see how "Veronica" was doing 9 years since the show ended. I was really hoping that Duncan Kane would somehow come out of the woodwork and be in the movie..perhaps a triangle in Veronica's love life between Logan and Piz. Didn't happen. :( Sad face.

The infamous black bag/purse made it back into the movie. Cool points in my book!

KRISTEN BELL at The House of Lies Press Conference

1AB0B2D1

Did I mention Kristen has the best hair?!?! Seriously...I die! Best styles and cut ever. She always looks impeccable. 


I will say, when watching the movie, you could definitely tell she had just had her baby. Her boobs were HUGE in the movie and you can tell they did their best to "cover" her body up. Didn't faze me at all though. 



On a random note, I cannot find these ANYWHERE!!! Everyone remembers these cardboard shoe boxes for storage right?!?! Seriously I searched every where online and in stores. No luck. All there is plastic and who wants that heavy crap in their closet? Not me! 

Cardboard shoe storage
And there's my random post for ya for the weekend! 

Haves and have nots

I did a little spring cleaning this evening and decided to share some purchases that I regret buying and purchases I consider my holy grail of beauty! 


1. I've tried many many make up removing wipes. This one was by far the worst. Maybelline make up removing wipes. A total bust. Since I've tried so many, I have to say that the Neutrogena wipes win my vote hands down, the best make up removing wipes out there! 


2. Baby Lips. HUGE let down. They don't moisturize at all. They do the opposite, and I find myself trying to reapply all the time which is super annoying and not good for your lips in all actuality! 

3. High Beam. I just don't seem to really use this one. Saw it a long time ago on Pink Lou Lou's blog.

4. Laura Mercier lip gloss. Bust. Doesn't stay on AT ALL. 

5. Chanel lip gloss. Same problem. Huge waste of money in my opinion. 

6. Tarte pencil. I saw this pencil on a youtube tutorial for make up and thought I'd give it a try. You get any of this in your eyes you will feel like a cat scratched your eye. Not a good product for the eye area in my opinion.


I didn't number this picture but most items are easily identifiable! 

The Lorac Pro pallet is a holy grail product for me. I use it every other day for my eye make up and love the colors! This was worth the price tag!

Righteous Butter by Soap and Glory. I'm on my 4th tub of this lotion and I don't ever intend to use any other lotion ever again. Some of you asked how I use this with the Banana Boat lotion. I apply the soap and glory (pink tub) first, right after I get out of the shower. Then immediately apply the banana boat tanner lotion right on top of that. Use liberally and rub rub rub in! Wash your hands immediately after using (unless you are cool with tanner between the crevices of your fingers!) 

It's a Ten spray (been using this for the last 4 years) don't think I'll use anything else either. Spray on after getting out of shower on your damp hair. 

Kenra spray for blowdrying your hair. I dry my hair every other day and need top notch heat protectant. This product takes the cake! Smells great and leaves hair shiny. 

Oscar Blanti silk cream is good stuff too. I like to change up my hair stuff every now and again so this one I haven't been using as much as of lately but still a great great hair product! 

What are your must have and have nots for beauty products!?
