The Funky Monkey Favorites


The 100% Pure Argan Oil To Go from Josie Maran Cosmetics has saved my skin!  Now that the fall weather is creeping up, my skin has been so dry.  No matter what I used, the dry patches on my face looked even worse when I wore foundation.  I decided to mix one small drop of Josie Maran's argan oil with my foundation on the back of my hand and it worked like a charm.  My skin was moisturized, hydrated and it helped my foundation look smooth and even.  I'm hooked.   This magical formula is pure, free of chemicals and makes my skin happy.


I have a brand new favorite set of pens!  The highly rated Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pens write like a dream and dry 3x faster for reduced smearing.  As a teacher, these pens rock my world!  I am never without a color I need.  They're so vivid and gorgeous!  The ergonomic comfort grip feels great and the smooth, flowing gel ink brightens up all my notes.  One thing is for sure, I will never be without these fantastic pens. By the way, these make excellent gifts for teachers!

The Funky Monkey Favorites


The Sally Hansen Freesia Your Mind Miracle Gel gave me a full week of chip-resistant nail polish.  That's saying a lot as I'm a teacher and use my hands a lot!  Most polishes I have in my collection don't give me the staying power I found in this miracle gel formula.  This no-light needed polish is easy to use.  Step 1:  Gel Color, Step 2:  Gel Top Coat.  It dries fast and removes easily with regular nail polish remover.  You'll love their color selection and thicker brush.


If you're looking for fun magnet sets, look no further than Three by Three.  I was sent two awesome sets that my students love!  The Jumbo Color Dots Magnets come in a set of 12.  Each one can hold up to five sheets of standard letter paper.  They are made of anisotropic magnet, the strongest rubber magnet material.  I enjoy the color variety and simplicity.  They're fun and add a wonderful pop of color to your office space, locker, fridge or classroom!


Another darling set is Three by Three's Shape-Up! Metal Cat Magnets.  These metal cats backed with anisotropic magnet come in a four pack - 2 black and 2 stainless.  They make a great gift for any cat lover!


The Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub is one my new favorite skincare products.  This powder-to-foam formula with natural baking soda removes dirt and oil, but is still very gentle on the skin.  You can choose how much water you want to add to dial down the scrub's intensity.  This oil-free formula leaves my skin feeling so soft.  I use this after my make-up removing cleanser as the finishing touch to my skincare routine.

LazyBonezz: Style you want, luxury for your pets


Pet lovers, if you're looking for stylish, modern pet products that won't stand out like a sore thumb, look no further than LazyBonezz.  This company sent over some very chic pieces for our cats.


The Cat Scratch Pad in Ebony has been a real lifesaver.  In the past we used cardboard scratch pads, but they left such a mess and weren't very attractive to have around.  Now our three cats use this angled scratching surface instead of our furniture.  

This high quality sturdy piece combines the beauty of wood with a pet-friendly, textured surface cats love.  The high-gloss, non-toxic finish blends nicely with home decor.  This scratcher even features coated bottoms to prevent scuffing our floor.  Also available in the color espresso.


The Croc Lounger in Silver has become my cats favorite place to lounge.  This chic bed features a shiny, patent croc exterior and a soft velour covered cushion that easily zips off and can be machine washed.  This is great for cats and dogs and also comes in black and espresso.

Visit LazyBonezz today to see all of their gorgeous pet designs!

Upholstered headboards are all the rage now.  We purchased a beautiful tuffed headboard from a local furniture store and it really does make our bed look amazing.  I was doing a search for inexpensive headboards and came across this Better Homes and Gardens Grayon Linen Headboard with Nailheads from Walmart.  I've never purchased furniture from Walmart. Anyone have any experience before?



This headboard looks clean, chic and it's on sale for under $100!  It comes in gray, navy and oatmeal.  Great color choices!  The navy would look amazing in a boys bedroom with a sports or nautical theme.
