Short post this afternoon, as I’m spending as much time outside as possible! But I have some really great stuff to share. :)

Donors Choose

1. My friend Jason’s Donors Choose Project, which ends soon! Jason and I taught English in the South Bronx together for several years, and I simply can’t say enough about him. He’s one of the most caring, passionate and talented teachers I’ve ever met, and I love his current fundraising project: He’s trying to raise money for grade-appropriate nonfiction magazines such as “The New York Times Upfront” to prepare his students for the Common Core, and Chromebooks to use for conducting research and publishing essays. Please help. (We only have a week left to raise the money!)

Every little bit is appreciated (really), and helps Jason spark a love for learning in his amazing students! :) Thank you so much, guys!


2. My favorite Barbour jacket, which is on sale for only $238! Use code “BRRR30” quickly… the sale ends tonight at 11:59 PST! Tip: Size up. I normally wear a size 4 in Barbour jackets, but I went with a 6 in this one. And don’t forget to check out the rest of the outerwear sale, too. It’s crazy!

3. J.Crew Factory’s new arrivals. Take 30 percent off your order of $125 or more (and get free shipping) when you use code “YAYSHOP.”
