Product Review: REKS Optics

REKS Optics

Good morning, loves! It’s almost the weekend and the weather is beginning to heat up, both on the west coast and the east coast. With that in mind, I wanted to share with you my absolute favorite brand of sunglasses: REKS Optics.

REKS Optics has everything that you could want in a pair of sunglasses! They are completely customizable, so you can design a pair that fits your unique style. How cool is that?! Here are some of your options…

Frame: SeafarerRoundAviatorWrap AroundSport, and Sling-Blade. I prefer the round frames, but it all depends on the shape of your face and your style.

Lenses: Solux (lightweight and shatter resistant), Lumolux (polarized to resist glare), and Chromalux  (darker in sun, lighter in shade). I love the lumolux lenses because they are polarized.

Colors for Shades and Lenses: There are multiple colors available. I prefer to match my frames with my lenses, but you can mix and match depending on the style.

And best of all, REKS Optics are UNBREAKABLE!! Yes, I just typed that. These sunglasses bend, but don’t break! Which is absolutely amazing. These durable, yet stylish, sunglasses are perfect for when I teach, travel, or just for everyday use. I can say this with confidence because when Alejandro and I moved to California, I simply threw these sunnies in the front pocket of my suitcase…AND THEY WERE FINE! And we all know how the airport can treat our luggage.

Finally, REKS Optics are also affordable, with prices ranging from $30-$60! What more could you ask for?

Review of The Dapper Dog Box

Happy Monday! If you’re reading this on the West Coast, I hope you have a warm cup of coffee and are starting your week off right. If you’re reading this on the East Coast, you’re Monday is almost half way over-you got this! For all my fellow dog owners and dog lovers out there, today I wanted to talk about a monthly subscription box that you and your pup will love!

About The Dapper Dog Box

If you follow my Instagram story (@cuteteachings), then you may have seen this fur ball and I opening The Dapper Dog Box. The Dapper Dog Box is a monthly subcription box filled with all natural treats, toys and accessories; all of which are customized for your dog. Each box is filled with five high quality and healthy goodies for your pup. Typically you’ll receive two treats, two toys and a chew or accessory. And all the products found in The Dapper Dog Box are 100% organic or all natural, and made in the U.S.A. These five items have a $60 average value, but the box is affordable and only cost $1 a day. Plus, $1 per box is donated to rescue dogs.

What Piper & I liked about The Dapper Dog Box

Upon receiving The Dapper Dog Box, I loved what was inside! Not only did we get five high-quality items, but we also received a free shamrock cookie for Saint Patrick’s Day. How cute?! Piper was so excited, and was sniffing around like crazy. She instantly took out the blue ball, and has not let go of it since. Seriously. This girl takes that ball everywhere, even to bed at night. What makes me happy is that the ball is made from recycled products, and can be recycled. Also, it is extremely durable. Piper is not one to chew or break her toys. She is super gentle with her things and loves to take care of them. But knowing that she wont destroy this ball, and possible choke on it (yes, I’m that mom), makes me feel even better.

As for the treats, Piper absolutely LOVED them! She has a super sensitive stomach, so we are always mindful about what we give her. I felt comfortable giving her all three of the treats that came in The Dapper Dog Box. The first bag of treats was vegan, gluten free, and grain free. It had no preservatives or artificial sweeteners, and was hypoallergenic. The second bag of treats only had two ingredients, which makes them great for dogs with sensitive stomachs. If you know me, then you may know that I try to eat foods that have less than five ingredients. Any time that I am able to provide these kinds of foods for Piper, makes me extremely happy. The last bag of treats was a great source of protein, was free of grains, glutens, GMOs and glycerin. This bag of treats only had five ingredients. I love that Piper is eating delicious treats that are healthy, and that we may not have found if it weren’t for The Dapper Dog Box. As a dog mom, I am mindful about what I feed her. I’m glad that The Dapper Dog Box sends full-sized, healthy treats that my furbaby will enjoy!

Would I Recommend The Dapper Dog Box?

I would 100% recommend The Dapper Dog Box! I think that if Piper could talk, she would recommend it too. I still keep the treats inside the box, and every time I pull it out, she jumps around with excitement.

Thankfully you can send or receive The Dapper Dog Box, and it’s free shipping! Go ahead and spoil your furbaby-they deserve it!

Five Weeks with Delia Organics


If keeping up with Cute Teachings than you’ll know that I have been LOVING my skincare routine. For the past few months I have been using delia organics, and I could not be happier with the way my face looks and feels. For a review focusing on the products shown above, check out my previous post titled delia organics.

Thankfully, delia organics was kind enough to send me their brand new Bedew Masque and Dose of C Eye Magnify. Guys…these products are an incredible addition to my already amazing daily routine. The Bedew Masque is made with organic aloe vera, cucumber and spirulina to provide the best possible nutrients for your skin. The first time I opened the container, I could not get over the beautiful cucumber smell (same with the Berry Berry Masque I have been using). I mean seriously, these products smell good enough to eat (but don’t). As for the Dose of C Eye Magnify, this was something totally new to me. I had never used a product that focused solely on my eyes. But oh my goodness, I am totally hooked now. The Dose of C Eye Magnify is made with vitamin E and botanical hyaluronic acid.  These ingredients help moisturize, protect and restore the skin around your eyes.

Every morning I add these two products to my routine. First, I dampen my face and apply the Dose of C Serum. Out of the delia organics products, the serum is one of my favorites. It helps me wake up in the morning! Next, I apply the Dose of C Eye Magnify and then the Bedew Masque. And then that’s it! You can continue on with your morning. No rinsing. And best of all, your face feels amazing once you step out into the fresh air.

After using delia organics for five weeks, I could not be happier with the results. My face is brighter and feels incredible. Just take a look below at my Before and After pictures.
