Instagram Round Up and A ShopBop Sale!

*So this happened this past weekend:
(This was shared on the Facebook page and is my total #girlboss moment of the week)
YES, girl yes, my blog is doing SO well (thanks to you lovelies) I actually needed business cards. Woot, Woot, that's me enjoying my little two second victory jam I allow my students when they have a #girlboss or #bossstudent moment! 

Teach Like a Champion by best-selling author: Doug Lemov provides powerful techniques, that are specific and easy to implement, that assist any teacher in becoming a champion in the classroom. One of the strategies Doug suggests is a two-second victory dance. After some gradual release (I do, we do) the students are now able to complete the "you do" part and successfully and appropriately have a two-second dance party to celebrate any #bossstudent moments! I particularly love this approach because it allows students time to celebrate success without taking away valuable instruction time.  I truly love my job. 

*Also featured on instagram this week:
Yesterday on instagram I shared a sneak peak at some of the details that will be featured in the #SCSpringStyle challenge. I am SO excited about this J.Crew Factory necklace (try this) and floral Kate Spade Bag (try this). I'm ready for spring, now if only the weather would keep up. If you haven't already apply to join the StyleCollectiveSisterhood. I have met so many wonderful blogging ladies. What is unique about this sisterhood is that we work together to support and celebrate each others #girlboss moments. In this group you will be embraced with team work instead of competition. As my lovely friend Janna and I were talking about last night one of SC's mantra's is: "We rise by lifting others." This is SO true. (Go sign up and tell them Lauren from RosesandRainBoots sent you!)
*Today on Instagram:

I chose this collage because it highlights my favorite 3 photos from Instagram. This full body was originally pictured from the clutch down, because I am too tall to fit in the "square" frame Instagram provides... total #tallgirlproblems. I also LOVE this shot of my sock-bun (thanks Hunnie for the great photo). I am a huge fan of throwing my hair into a sock-bun where running late or my blow-out isn't working. It can easily be dressed down or glammed up. I also cheat and picked up two donut holes from H&M to make the process easier. Want a sock-bun tutorial?! Leave a note in the comments section. Lastly, this bag shot has to be MY favorite. I am such a girlie-girl and love anything artsy and this shot totally captures my favorite parts of any outfit, the fabulous arm candy, sequins and statement bag, what's not to love?! 

What are your favorite Instagram photos?!

Are we friends on Instagram? If not, head on over to the social icons in the sidebar or this link and hit follow, I'll follow you back!

For the second part of today's post I have rounded up my 5 favorite items you need to take a look at is having a huge sale! Currently you can get 25% off at ShopBop with no minimum; this is HUGE because usually they require you to spend a certain $dollar amount but not on this sale. This is the perfect time to buy those expensive designer items you have been debating about.  And hurry because this sale is only on until April 7th! 

Rebecca Minkoff Bag 
This BAG is in my shopping cart. I. Am. Obsessed. I can't get over the color. It is amazing. 

Tory Burch Miller Sandals
These are seriously my favorite sandals (not included in the promo). They instantly dress up a pair of cut-offs and a chic blouse. Plus they are Tory's you can never go wrong with a pair of Tory Burch shoes and they are on sale! #winning 

The Sundress Official Beach Cover-Up
I'm telling you, you NEED it, one word= obsessed. I will be having a summer essentials post coming out soon and I promise you this sundress will be on it. Since I only live a block away from the beach this is the perfect cover-up on my walk through town. It is definitely a statement piece. 

My favorite Hunter Boots are also on sale in this pretty periwinkle blue color. 

Lastly, these mirrored sunnies are all the rage this spring. And I'm loving this pair, similar to Jessica Alba's pictured above!
