5 Super Cute Back to School Teacher Gifts

5 Super Cute Back to School Teacher Gifts | City of Creative Dreams

Can you hear the school bells ringing? I am not ready for my little man to be going to school. He is still my baby but I love the idea of giving your teacher a gift and to start young is even better. I used to give my teacher a gift at the end of the year. Not on national teacher day or on the first day of school, younger me, would get to know my teacher all throughout the year and then get a gift cater to that teacher. If I had multiple I would do the same. Regardless of when you give your teacher a gift, it is the thought that counts. The teacher will just be grateful that your child had taken the time (even if you did all the work) to think about her/ him.

Here are some awesome ideas, I wish I thought of first that will trigger some creative juices for when your little one has their first day of school.






Aren't these the cutest? I love each and everyone one of these ideas and there are so much more to create and design out there. I hope your young ones have an awesome first day of school. To the first time parent... hang in there, remember that everything is going to be fine. Happy first day of school for all!

I hope you have some time, I would love to hear from you. Leave a comment to say how much you enjoyed my post or even say hi, follow me on TwitterFacebookGoogle+PinterestInstagram page or even subscribe. I will do the same! Have a wonderfully creative week!

5 Ways to Being Stylishly Comfortable At Work

5 Ways to Being Stylishly Comfortable At Work | City of Creative Dreams

My friends over at Tommy John are all about the base.... about that base for comfortable men's underwear plus more which got me thinking what is my personal secrets to being comfortable at work? It is no mystery at all. I love clothing that makes me feel good. It is not all about the latest trends or colors or whole production for me. I wear what I love and that is all that matters to me.

Being professional at work... my job is not as professional as you would think because in my day job I work in retail, however, I do like to present myself in a way that I am semi-causal in what I wear. Being comfortable is very important because I am constantly walking. I am walking to the subway, sometimes I am standing on the train, walking to work then spend eight hours walking up and down escalators, going between three floors and then after all that I have to walk back to the station and walk home = about 17000.0 steps! Talk about a lot steps in my day.

Here is my way of staying super comfy:
5 Ways to Being Stylishly Comfortable At Work | City of Creative Dreams
Women's Clothes: TopCardiganJeansShoesNecklaceBraceletBag

1) Finding The Right Shirt
I personally love a soft, flowy shirt and with personality. I love myself a tank top, I can wear those every single day and would be fine, however, at work I am only allowed to wear a t-shirt or a long sleeve. So finding an ultra smooth and comfortable t-shirt is simple. There are fantastic classic t-shirts in silk or cotton that feels great on the skin but nowadays there are also t-shirts that don't look like your basic pop concert tee but gives you a professional touch with personal style. When I get a little chilly at work I pair it with a long cardigan.

2) Pants That Breath
I have to wear pants that allow my legs to breath. In a perfect world I would wear shorts or jeggings all the time,but since I am stuck in wearing jeans only I had to find some jeans that I love and can work in. It cannot be tight jeans. That is number one, you saw the number of steps I walk, there is no way I would be comfortable if I was wearing tight jeans. Make sure the end of your pants have a little flow. I am not talking about bell bottoms but enough to be able to bend a billion times without worrying that your pants will rip. My number one advice is to wear the softer jeans, it is a lot lighter than the heavier jeans, you don't want to feel like you are wearing weights all day. 

3) Undergarments That Hug
I don't usually talk about my undergarments but like everything else, it needs to fit properly. I like to say that is should give you a hug instead of wearing you down or I guess I should say rising up a little too high. You can wear the most comfortable outfit but having two or one undergarments that are irritating you can ruin the entire outfit. Figure out what fabric and style work best for you.

4) Shoes That Remember 
Runners are my go-to because for the reason I am always going to do something. Work is nothing different, I can't wear anything too fancy when it comes to shoes because it will get ruined but that doesn't mean that runners can't be awesome looking as well. I bought myself memory foamed shoes and never looked back. It helps me when I am constantly on my feet and doesn't leave my feet feeling tired. Now that is a shoe that keeps up with me.

5) Accessories That Don't Drag
As for accessories... I like to keep it simple. Lately, I haven't worn anything more than a smart watch and necklace. I was a sucker for huge hoop earrings at one point and then said no more to that. I was getting tired of my son pulling it out of my earlobes. Simple studs would do. Getting to work I love to be hands-free.  I don't want to have to pick up my purse from sliding off my arm. My bag needs to have space for all my things such as lunch, wallet and whatever else is at the bottom of my bag. My favorite bag is a crossbody bag and a wristlet. It doesn't matter how big or small. I just love that I have my hands free to do things with no worry.

How about men? I haven't forgotten you, with the same tips applied I have created another style board to keep men comfy and stylish too:

6 Incredible Tips and Tricks for Your Child's Lunch Box

6 Incredible Tips and Tricks for Your Child's Lunch Box | City of Creative Dreams

One thing I know for sure about school is most kids get tired of having the same old, boring sandwich. I know this more than anything because I was that kid a long time ago. No one wants the same thing over and over again and it gets tough having to think about other alternates to a sandwich that is 1) filling enough, 2) able to be fine without a microwave and 3) tastes great! So I thought I would showcase some mommies out there that thought of lunch box ideas for us and provided incredible tips and tricks to keep us well prepared this school year.
