The Funky Monkey Favorites!


By now you know about my love for all things Twisted Silver.  This one-of-a-kind company has done it again with their awesome Flatiron Rope Duo Bracelet Set.  This rustic set oozes sophistication and class.  I love the mixed metals and each bracelet is fully adjustable.  With a smaller sized wrist, this is a must for me. Of course, no piece of jewelry would be complete without their signature Twisted Silver dangling coin!  


Summer nails never looked so good!  Sally Hansen introduces a new special effect.  Now you can create a radiant, iridescent look with Pearl Crush!  This collection features eight special effect polishes that features a unique combination of pigments that interact with layers of large, faceted glitter particles.  Your nails with have a 3D crushed pearl look.  The lighter colors really remind me of a mermaid! Whether you prefer a light or dark tone, you'll love this new "pearl" effect.  This limited edition collection is available at chain drugstores and mass retailers nationwide.  Get them while you can!


Finally a slim fitting pant that isn't too long!  If you're 5' 4" or shorter, try the Women's Ankle Pant from SlimSation instead of a skinny pant.  This ankle length worked great for me!  I'm exactly 5' 4" and these were the perfect length - not too short and not too long.  They are wrinkle resistant, wash extremely well, and are the ultimate in comfort.  

The SlimSation stretch fabric feels great against the skin and the contoured waistband doesn't dig or sag. These pants stretch with your body with a blend of rayon, nylon and spandex and hold their shape beautifully throughout the day.  Available in classic colors such as black, denim, stone and white, and fun summer brights!


With the summer heat, a foundation primer is a must!  I'm completely sold on the Photo Finish Foundation Primer from Smashbox.  If you've never tried a primer, this is the one worth looking into.  This oil-free, 60% water based primer is perfect for oily, acne-prone or sensitive skin.  It dries quickly and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores, while leaving your skin feeling extra soft. I apply this after my day moisturizer, and it really helps my foundation stay put all day.  My skin stays matte longer and light diffusers minimize the appearance of imperfections.  It's no wonder it has won Allure Magazine's Best of Beauty Award for Best Primer.


As a teacher, I'm always looking for books that will inspire my students.  The sweet book "Gratitude is a Funny Thing" is a story that encourages children to live each day with gratitude and how to learn to listen to their intuition.  The illustrations are simple, colorful and appealing to kids.  Being appreciative of everything around them is a lesson all children should learn.  This heartfelt book teaches children to see the world as a more beautiful place.  Isn't that what we all want for our children?   


The Sprite Scooter from Micro Kickboard is suitable for ages 8-99!  This is their highest rated scooter for 8+! Of course we expect nothing less than superior quality when it comes to Micro Kickboard.  Their scooters are phenomenal and definitely my kids' favorite brand.  The Sprits is light in weight (5.5 lbs) and easy to carry.  My daughter has this in her favorite color, red, and everyone comments on how attractive it is.  The handle bar is fully adjustable and extends 34" above the ground.  


It's perfect for traveling as it quickly folds up for easy carrying and storage.  An adult up to 220 lbs can ride comfortably on the Sprite.  Your scooter will arrive fully assembled with a patented double-button folding system.  This scooter also features a two way kickstand and comfy padded handlebars.


The Violet Tassels Necklace from Noonday Collection is simplistic and beautiful.  This twenties inspired tassel necklace is adorned with delicate violet glass beads and a soft flowing tassel.  The necklace measures 35" long.  This is made with love in India and is now on sale!
