Lisa’s Letter 08.07.23

a weekly newlsetter

Hello everyone! August has begun with cooler temperatures and sunny skies, creating beautiful beach days. As a teacher, I am shifting from summer to a back-to-school mindset. I read somewhere that August is like the Sunday of summer, and I can relate to this because my mind is transitioning from relaxation mode to preparing for the new school year. This week’s letter includes some things to help me get motivated and organized for the transition back to work; I hope you enjoy it.


I needed some mindless, laugh-out-loud fun, and Jury Duty did not disappoint!

Started The Bear and really liked it but got distracted by Jury Duty.


Just ordered How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease because two friends recommended it. Have you read it?


Beaded necklaces, like this green one

Or this rainbow beaded necklace.

And this single pearl choker.



Updating my school desk with this basket organizer.

I chose to use a simple teacher planner for this year with a matching desk calendar.

These fruit and veggie storage containers for the fridge.

Best fine-point pens in vintage colors.

Cutest notebook for all the meetings.

There’s no need to purchase a new school bag as I already own the best one. I wrote about these bags before because I’m obsessed.


These easy dinner recipes will help with the transition back to work.

All things prosecco. National Prosecco Day is on August 13th; what does your favorite prosecco drink say about you?


All things easy means a cute throw-on-and-go dress.

This flutter-sleeve swing dress from Loft

tie belt shirt dress from H&M

a beautiful coral and turquoise tunic shirt dress
