the student teaching essentials

i’ve mentioned here and there that i am now student teaching full time…and that requires a lot of supplies, let me tell you.  aside from all the actual classroom essentials, which include the catcher in the rye, my notebook, and my school laptop, i like to have a whole set of items and products that i may need.  it sounds like a lot and it sounds extreme, but i find i feel so much more confident when i feel prepared and like i have all the supplies i could ever possibly need.  

has anyone ever read the children’s book, chrysanthemum?  well chrysanthemum is a little mouse that is teased at school because of her name.  to combat this, she fills her favorite jacket with all her most prized possessions to give her extra confidence.  and this is EXACTLY what i do too.bb student tch1.jpg makeup items //

bare minerals perfecting veil powder with elf retractable brush // i always carry this bare minerals powder (discontinued) that my sister gave me with my handy dandy elf brush.  i will also occasionally throw in my mineral fusion pressed powder as well, if i feel like i need a little more coverage throughout the day.  i don’t always use a powder, but i have found that something about the school environment/air/lights make me feel a lot oilier than usual.bb student tch5.jpgspot concealer // i keep my sephora concealer in 03 meringue in my bag ALWAYS.  you just never know, ok!  i’ll occasionally pop my nars creamy concealer in there too if i really need it.

mini tweezerman tweezers // you truly never know when you will need tweezers.  a stray nose hair, a makeup brush hair that won’t get off your face, a splinter…you feel me.

maybelline brow brush // i aaaalways need a little brow brush up.

clarins instant light lip comfort oil in honey // this is the lip product that has been on my lips for the past 2 months straight.  it looks like a gloss but feels like a balm and honey is the perfect, almost-clear shade.  it makes me feel put together but also hydrates the lips beautifully.  i transfer this from pocket to pocket and purse to purse, but right now it’s living at school with me.bb student tch4.jpgkorres lip butter in jasmine // another balm that gives me more oomph than just a balm does.  i love the light nudey pink shade of this and it’s one of my all time favorite lip products.  you know i love a lip product that lightens the lips just a teensy bit.  i just wish it wasn’t in a pot because i only use it right after i’ve washed my hands.

sephora coconut lip balm // my mom and i both looove this balm!  it smells amazing and feels amazing.  need i say more?  great simple balm that i always have around somewhere.

super old sephora mirror compact // for when i don’t feel like whipping out my powder.

daily essentials // bb student tch3.jpghand sanitizer // currently using bronner’s.  i don’t know how anyone can work in a school, or really anywhere, without a good hand sanitizer.  life essential, people.  i also carry wet ones hand wipes with me for more serious situations! 

hand lotion // my lotion of choice is a travel size gold bond.  99 cents at target.  yes.  it can also double as a face cream if necessary as it’s not exclusively a hand cream. 

hair clips and twisties // duuuuhhhhh!

mouthwash // DUH!  as a teacher i am super aware of my coffee breath.  mouthwash is an absolute non-negotiable.

the extras that i don’t really use but like to have //

tide to go, lint brush, bandaids, lactaid, imodium, tissues // every single one of these products shows you who i really am.  don’t believe what instagram shows you.  i am a grandma.bb student tch2.jpgso i know this sounds like an absolute load of products, but all my essentials fit into a glossier pink pouch and my makeup items fit into a very small mac travel bag.  i leave everything in my backpack/school bag so i don’t have to think about anything until i need it!

am i missing anything?  what products do you keep with you on a daily basis?

winter lips: how to prevent them from falling off your face

4 of my winter best friends for preventing and treating chapped, sore lips…
babybohemian-lip-favoritesbabybohemian-lip-favorites-img-2

korres lip butter in jasmine // this is a recent purchase but i already bought another one to keep in my purse.  the korres lip butters are a cult item because they are such nice lip balms, but also the colors are so beautiful.  jasmine looks quite peachy in the pot, but leaves a milky pink sheen on the lips.  i like it when my lips look a little lighter than they usually do, so this is perfect.  it’s lip balm, but it makes me feel like i have a little bit of something on my lips.

shea moisture coconut & shea butter lip balm // i picked this up at target because it was right by the checkout and looked really cute – full disclosure.  and i actually love it because it is a balm but shows up quite glossy on the lips.  it lasts for a long time and imparts a nice amount of moisture.  and yes, it’s really cute!

nuxe reve de miel // i’ve had this one since last winter and am still making my way to the bottom of the pot!  this is a love-it-or-hate-it item for a lot of people, but i’m on the love side.  i like that it exfoliates while adding a sort of hydration mask to your lips.  it shows up matte so i wear this during the day or at night, but mostly at night since i like to really layer it up.  after my trip to london my lips were intolerably chapped and no amount of blistex could save them.  unsurprisingly this helped over night, and i think it is because it both exfoliated and healed, and so that just reiterated my love and faith in this product.

glossier coconut balm dotcom // i got the coconut version of the cult balm dotcom last spring and enjoyed it, but it has really become a staple over the past 2-3 months.  like the nuxe, i really slap this on at night and let it soak in, but i like to apply it lightly during the day as well.  i do feel that the coconut is more moisturizing than the original and it has a little bit of a meltier consistency, like coconut oil does.  i’m pretty sure these qualities are in my head as there aren’t any actual coconut ingredients in the formula, but it really does feel different!
