Beautycounter: 3 Minute Face


Wow! 

My #3minuteface kit from Beautycounter came yesterday and I was so eager to put it to the test! I mean, THREE minutes…. Really?!?

Well here’s the result….!

I just did a before and after using the #3minuteface kit before work this morning! 

Before applying the #3minuteface kit, I used #beautycounter’s Routine Clean face wash and Everyday face moisturizer. 

Can you believe 5 products made such a difference?? 

Get yours now – it’s available while supplies last. You get a tint shade, blush, touchup skin concealer, brow pencil, lip gloss and a cosmetic bag all for $125 (a $195 retail value).

Calling ALL Teachers and Parents!!!! Should We Implement Universal Preschool?


IMG_4257

Currently, I am studying education. I am curious to know what your thoughts are about this topic – especially parents and teachers!
In one of my classes we have been discussing the importance of schooling and various school systems across the world. For example, in Mexico, children attend preschool from 3 to 5 years of age. The third year of preschool at the age of five, is equivalent to our kindergarten. There, students are able to interact socially with others of the same age, and also build a solid foundation for grade school.

In conjunction, we have also been discussing the roles of parents and how this has changed dramatically over the past 50-100 years! Women’s roles have also shifted in being accepted into many powerful positions in their careers. Further, with our economy, The need for two incomes, or two working parents is more of a necessity now. Thus, the need for childcare or, better yet, the cost of childcare is a rising concern!

On the flip side, what would this mean for our taxes? Would it affect smaller day care institutions? Does that mean less flexibility in the type of pre-school a child can attend?

I am interested to know if you are or are not in favor of a universal preschool? I would also like to know your reasons and thoughts! Please and thank you. 🙂
