I’m sorry... how is it only Wednesday?!?
About last night..... this dress.... that’s all (and dogs ) 👗 🐕
I had the most incredible day today in #marcelacastillos third grade class. Marcela is the amazing teacher using #harrypotter books as a way to encourage literacy. After @zimcares and @jakkstoys heard about this class, they wanted to help. So today I got to give these special third graders their own wands and Owls (no #howlers delivered ) We read a book, had a long conversation about bullying and other things on 8 year old minds, and most importantly we talked about spreading the love of reading to their siblings and friends. I won’t bombard you with a million pictures (well here anyway... I might in my stories ) but I promise my excitement and smiles were as big as theirs. Thank you to LaLa Charter School and all the kids and their parents.
Oh hello #tuesday. Who is “screaming with me”?!? #coffee ☕️
You can tell who the strong woman are, they are the ones you see building up one another, instead of tearing each other down. I would be lost without my #girlgang, both east coast and west coast.
We all want a beautiful white smile, but not all teeth whitening products are created equal. That’s why I am so excited to partner with @colgate Optic White High Impact. This whitening toothpaste has hydrogen peroxide and whitens teeth both inside and out! It really is #WhiteningThatWorks. Oh and the best part...it's super easy to find in any store. #ColgatePartner A smiling face, is a beautiful face.
It doesn’t matter what you wear, they’re checking out your savior faire (But it doesn’t hurt when the dress is this good )
#publicserviceannouncement Parents, a warning, this is what you will look like if you take your kids to @theadventuredome (bring extra suitcases ) #bestday #bestbirthdays
Let’s hope what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!!!
Ten years ago today, Charlotte Grace Prinze entered this world, and my heart. I thought I had experienced a lot of amazing highs in my life, but nothing prepared me for this. They say a mom gives the gift of life, but life gave me the gift of you Charli ❤️ #happybirthday
Three horrible facts. Today is not Friday. Tomorrow is not Friday. Even the day after tomorrow, is not Friday. #monday
Even the darkest night will end, and the sun will rise. Every 40 seconds someone loses their life to suicide, so today we take 40 seconds of action. As someone who has personally been affected by suicide, on this day #worldsuicidepreventionday I beg you to reach out. Whether you need a hand, or you know someone who is suffering, please reach out. This isn’t how it has to end. #wspd
@csiriano I’m coming for you #nyfw
Everyone needs sweet love
A smile is the best makeup a girl can wear!!
Only 22 hours, 34 minutes and 53 seconds until my kids go back to school..... but who’s counting?!?
I recently heard about this incredible movement on social media #clearthelist, to help teachers obtain the school supplies that consistently go uncovered by their school districts. Did you know that teachers on average spend almost 500 dollars a year of their own money for these supplies (and often a lot more ) Instantly I knew just the teacher I wanted to help- Marcela Castillo. She’s a dedicated educator, with a passion for all things @harrypotterfilm and has found a way to engage her students using this magical story (a passion I share, and I’m sure many of you do too ) Below I’m going to share a little note from Marcela and I will attach her @amazon wish list in this post (and in bio and a swipe in story ) Pls help #clearthelist and give her deserving students every opportunity to succeed. From Marcela- Hi my name is Marcela Castillo, and I’m a 3grade dual immersion teacher at Los Angeles Leadership Primary Academy in Lincoln Heights LALA is a title One school, meaning (they receive federal funding ) I work with a diverse population and most of my students come from low income families. As you know for some students school is a place where they spend most of their time and have a safe space with someone to trust. I make it a personal goal to make my room inviting. This year we have a Harry Potter themed classroom, where all students are no longer Muggles but WIZARDS. I also incorporated the first Harry Potter book (and on audio to use for their comprehension skills ) It is my goal to have two class sets of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer‘s Stone for my students, to allow them to track along with the audio too. But like every teacher, I would want my students to have their school supplies to start the year off on the right foot and not have anxiety for missing supplies. Any little bit helps. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/21QBIUDMXYQ5L?ref=cm_sw_sm_r_wl_ip_aYk5nsYkVQmtX
When you take your daughter and her bff to @americangirlbrand and realize you dressed in their colors #girlmom
My perfect Sunday. Beach and a new book. Always looking for new suggestions......
Thank you #colorado and @thebroadmoor - you make a perfect getaway for this city girl
Colorado you are pretty. “Traveling is about finding things you never knew you were looking for” #colorado
And on the seventh day, she rested..... just kidding- need to take the kids to sports clinic, do laundry, prepare camp lunches and I’m sure a million other chores
My dramatic goodbye to #nyc “there is something in the New York air that makes sleep useless”
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard... well actually @blacktapnyc #blacktapnyc #milkshake
Well well well upper east siders. S and S spotted on the steps of the Met XOXO
Falling into Monday like.... @colorfactoryco
Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible. (Maya Angelou )
So, full disclosure, @theprommusical wasn’t necessarily on my list to see. My daughter saw the performance on the @thetonyawards and was adamant we see it. Boy am I glad, because I was blown away. It’s truly an important show. Thank you, truly, to the cast of the Prom. I cried hard, but I also laughed hard. And my daughter walked away understanding that she has a voice, capable of making great change. Acceptance, selflessness, compassion, all themes we can always use more of. And on top of all that, the song “we look to you” perfectly encompasses every reason I love Broadway. Please see this show.
That hotel life though
#weekendreading Sometimes a book just speaks to you (dare I say chooses you ) #chosenone
Help me wish a very happy birthday to my dear friend @kchenoweth Not only is she an incredible human, and fiercely talented... she is the only person in my life that constantly makes me feel tall. #goodthingscomeinsmallpackages
Who needs #faceapp?!? I have the internet, which loves to remind me what I look like 20 years later 😂 😂 😂
