October Currently

October already!?
Not that I'm complaining... but September flew by!

I am finally getting back into the swing of teaching and blogging and have lots of new ideas to share :)  But today I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the October Currently!


I'm never listening to anything while I write my Currently's so I am sharing songs I am loving this month instead!

Good For You by Selena Gomez feat. Rocky: My boyfriend sang this song last weekend and ever since then it's been stuck in my head!! I've been singing this one while I staple bulletin board borders! haha

Cheyenne by Jason Derulo: If you see a girl driving down the street in an orange Chevrolet Sonic singing at the top of her lungs... it is probably me and I am probably singing this song lol 

and of course I am still in love with everything Ed Sheeran!

Loving: My New Shoes

My boyfriend bought me these shoes from J.Crew for my birthday and I am in love! The picture does not do them justice.  They are super sparkly especially in the sun but they are a mix of gold and silver so they go with everything! They were also super comfortable right out of the box! I have a hard time finding comfortable flats for my wide feet so I am so happy with these! I might just get them in other colours like black, rhubarb and desert pink!

Thinking: I need to collect books, videos etc. to start our apple/space/animal inquiries!

Although we try to start inquiries organically when possible we were having a difficult time uncovering wonderings from their play this year.  So I pulled each student aside and we talked about what we wondered about... and they came up with some cool wonderings! 

From this three general themes arose: apples, space and what animals eat.  We are going to try investigating all three simultaneously and see where it will take us!

If you have any recommendations for kid friendly videos or books that explain any of the concepts above I would love it if you could leave me a link in the comments below!

Wanting: More Fall Clothes!

Even though I just went shopping... I still want more new clothes! Here is what is currently on my wishlist!

Here are the links to the items above if you are interested!

Needing: A New Eyeliner

I recently stayed in a hotel and left my favourite eyeliner (Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner) there by accident :( I've been using just my pencil liner for now but I'm hoping to get a new eyeliner next time I can get to the mall! 

I had black before but I'm thinking about getting brown this time so that it is more everyday friendly!

Boo-tiful: I feel boo-tiful when I wear make-up and my hair down!

When I'm working I almost always wear my hair in a ponytail so my kinders are always surprised the first time they see me with my hair down and my co-workers always ask what I'm doing after school if my hair is down :P 

I also definitely feel a million times more boo-tiful with make-up on! 
Here are some of my favourites!

Here are the names of the products above, left to right and top to bottom:

Benefit Posietint
Benefit Lollitint
Benefit Sugarbomb
Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush in Petal
Urban Decay NAKED Palette (My favourite colours are Naked, Buck and Virgin)
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Covergirl Lashblast Mascara
Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
Covergirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

I'm lacking favourites in the lipstick/gloss department and the powder foundation department! Let me know if you have any recommendations!

That's it from me!

Don't forget to link up with Farley with your October currently! Happy Thursday!


  1. I'm so happy I discovered your blog through the Currently linky! Do you know about BrainPop (or BrainPop Junior for your age group)? They have some excellent short, kid-friendly videos that explain all kinds of topics. (Love the "I Wonder" cards btw!)

    1. Hi Erica! Thanks for visiting! I have heard of BrainPop Jr. but since it is subscription based and cost money I have never checked it out :( I have heard such great things about it but I'm sure my principal would say I could find free videos and books to use instead... although it doesn't hurt to ask so maybe I'll try :)

  2. Oh my, your new shoes are gorgeous! I think everyone needs a pair of sparkly, shiny shoes!!
    Have a nice evening. :)

    1. Aren't they!? I just loooove them!

      Thanks for visiting!

  3. I love your new shoes - how pretty! The combo of silver and gold is always a good one - one should always have a pair of sparkly shoes! I also hear you about wanting new clothes. I probably need to do a clothes shop soon.

    Happy October!

    1. Thanks for visiting Stef! I love clothes shopping but nearest good mall is far away... so I guess I'll have to wait for a while! I hope you are able to snag some new clothes soon :)

  4. Love the shoes! I'm addicted to my Naked 3 Palette!

    1. My friend actually just recommended the same palette when I asked about make-up recommendations on my Instagram! I'll have to check it out next time I have some Sephora gift cards :) Thanks for visiting!
