Fellowes Vlog Review! Great for your home or school office!

Hey everyone! Long time no see! This post would usually be my Coffee Date Vlog, but today I'm switching things up a bit. Next week I will be back with a coffee date, but today I have a review for some great supplies on shoplet.com!

The two products I am reviewing in this vlog are the Fellowes Document Lift with Dry Erase Surface (FEL9311301) and the Fellowes Laptop Riser (FEL9311201). These office supplies are great for any office, home, work, or school! They are made well, sturdy, and will definitely increase productivity! I love the document lift for small groups in my classroom, and the laptop riser for my personal laptop!

Thank you to shoplet.com for allowing me to review these items free of charge in exchange for my opinions!

Birthday Wishes

Since tomorrow is my birthday, I thought I would share a few things that are on my wishlist! Hey, one can wish, right?!

A Mason Jar Tumbler
I love mason jars, and have wanted one of these for a few weeks! They're perfect, with the handle, they don't sweat, and they hold 20 oz! And monogramming one? Even more spectacular!

I can never have enough dresses! And I'm looking to update my wardrobe to become more professional. But I LOVE this frock from ModCloth! So adorable!

A Beautiful Mess Photo Idea Book
My favorite blogger pair, Elsie and Emma, published their first book! And it just came out yesterday! I immensely LOVE their blog, A Beautiful Mess, and really want this book!

iPhone External Camera Lens
I love taking photos, and without a real working digital camera that I'm proud to take out and about, I end up doing most of my photography on my iPhone. I found this Olloclip, where there is a 3 in 1 lens that clips to your phone! Major WANT.

What else should be on my list? I'm super excited for tomorrow! Great things are coming!

Summer Passion

One of my favorite parts of summer is the yummy flavors it brings! One of my favorite non-coffee summer drinks from Starbucks is the Passion Lemonade. It's basically a mix between their Tazo Passion Iced Tea and lemonade. So simple, yet so refreshing and delicious! Not to mention, it's a bright pink color! The only thing I can't live with is the price. So I ventured to create my own version!

What you will need:
Lemonade (I used store-bought Simply Lemonade)
Tazo Passion Tea (I used hot, because it's what I had, but you can use iced too)
Ice Cube Tray (preferably in cute shapes! :)
A fun glass (or mason jar) and Bendy Straw

Start by making the Passion Tea. Boil about a cup or two of water, and then steep the tea bags for 5 minutes. You want to make the tea very concentrated, so for the cup and a half I made, I used 3 hot tea bags. Double the amount of tea bags per oz on the box.
Once the tea is steeped, pour it into the ice cube tray. I found the cutest heart-shaped tray at the Target Dollar Spot! It was perfect!
I always put it on a tray or plate, especially if it is a bendable tray like mine was, and then pop it in the freezer for a few hours, or as long as you want. I made my Passion Lemonade a day or so later. Once your tea cubes are frozen, remove them from the freezer and the tray. Pour your lemonade in a glass over ice, and add in those Passion Tea cubes! Stir and let the cubes melt a bit before enjoying your delicious and refreshing summer drink!
 I love the hearts in the drink; so much fun!
Price Comparison:

Starbucks Grande Passion Tea Lemonade: around $4
DIY Passion Tea Lemonade: $1 for the ice tray, $.25 for the tea, $.75 for the lemonade= $2 plus you get way more than 16 ounces! Well worth the time and effort! And, to be able to enjoy it in a picture perfect mason jar, priceless!

Also, for parties, you could make tons of these Iced Tea Cubes for a fun summer drink for everyone! Drink up some summertime!

Sunday Social!

Hey friends! Happy Sunday! I haven't done this in a while, so today I'm linking up with Neely and Ashley for:
Sunday Social

Let's get to it!
1. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a teacher :)

2. What was your favorite way to kill time as a kid?
Here are some favorites:

3. When did you get your first cell phone?
I'm pretty sure it was the Christmas of my senior year of high school, though it may of been my junior year. All I remember was BEGGING my parents for one for months beforehand! And then, that year, at the beginning of December, my mom came home with a new cell phone, which made me MAD. I was like "Why do YOU have a new cell phone if I don't have one yet?!" Little did I know, that was when they got me mine! Haha! My first cell phone was a Mint Chocolate LG slide phone!

4. What is your favorite magazine to read?
No contest, definitely InStyle!

5. What is one random object people would be surprised to find in your purse?
The only thing I could think of at the moment would be tea bags. If I want something yummy to drink, but want to be cheap, I'll use those at a coffee shop or something.

Alrighty! YOUR TURN! Go link up so we can learn more about each other!
