If Science Icons Had Instagram {Part Deux}

I was elated and surprised to be contacted by Educational Innovators, an educator's website to use my idea I blogged about at the beginning of the year, If Science Icons Had Instagram.

I have used Instagram throughout the year as my theme. Themes help to keep the students interested throughout the year. It also allows me to focus and to remain organized on my numerous bulletin boards all year long.

You can see their post HERE.

It is always nice to be recognized for my initiative and creativity in the field of education. I try my best to remain relevant and motivated, but at times it is hard.

Educational Innovators, y'all!

Sippin' in Seersucker

I absolutely love to don my seersucker suit. It is one of the most comfortable suits that I own.

I also love to mix it up while wearing the jacket and a bright color pant - green, royal blue, orange. I also like to wear the pants with a navy blazer. I also love a themed pocket square. Seersucker is very versatile from Easter to Labor Day.

I recently read this from WGNO, a local news ABC affiliate:
(WGNO) - It all started when Joseph Haspel, Sr. recognized the "power of the pucker."
His goal was to create clothes that could withstand the heat in New Orleans, and after founding the brand back in 1909, Haspel's seersucker became a hit in the fashion world.
"It was never pretentious, but it was always sophisticated and he was really proud of that fact," said Laurie Haspel Aronson, Haspel’s president and CEO.
Laurie is Joseph Haspel's great-granddaughter.
She said the seersucker was initially a laborer's outfit that transformed into a hot-weather-ready suit.
One time, Aronson said, Joseph Sr. actually dove into the ocean to prove his seersucker would be cocktail ready that evening. Apparently, it worked.
Former presidents Harry Truman and George W. Bush even rocked Haspel's seersucker.
And while the Haspel collection focuses on men's fashion, creating a line for women is something Laurie is looking forward to.
She recently collaborated with a New Orleans-based company, and she says it’s just the beginning.

I do love to sip in seersucker.

Scored! {Bottle Fed}

I've waited. I scored.

I am so happy to finally add a piece of art to my growing collection by Ashley Longshore. Ashley's pop art style of painting is totally unique. One of my favorite series is her Bottle Fed series. The art features Veuve Cliquot, my very fave champagne. Cheers!

Today, she offered a one time offer for an acrylic Bottle Fed tray in several colorways. I was overjoyed to snag a gold leafed one. This sale was red hot.

More here: In celebration of Ashley hosting Veuve Clicquot at her studio, we have this special opportunity for her collectors to snag a limited edition "Bottle Fed" tray.  This collection celebrates the good times in life.  Popping open that bubbly and celebrating with friends and family.  Ashley thinks everyone should be bottle fed...and now you can be.
