My Everyday/Travel Makeup Bag

So as I was putting together the list for makeup bag that I will have with me in the car when I go on my trip to the beach this summer, I decided that you might want to know exactly what's in there and why I bring them :)

The first thing I going to show you is this awesome pallet I found in a discount makeup store:
It is a "Sweet by Day, Sexy by Night" pallet. On one side it has a dark brown and a champagne shade eye shadow, a light and a dark shade of bronzer, a light and dark brown shade of lipgloss, and two small applicators. On the other it has a light shade of pink and an almost purple eye shadow, a light and dark shade of blush, a light and dark shade of pink lipgloss, and two small applicators. You can buy it at for $5. I thought this was the most simple way to pack all that i would need!

Next I'm going to show you the face products I am bringing:
They are:
The Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder
The ELF Aloe Infused Blotting Sheets
The Hard Candy Concealer Pencil (Comes with the Glamoflauge Concealer)
My Favorite Kabuki Brush
A Retractable Blush Brush
 My face tends to get oily, actually forget that. My face is always oily! And we are going to the beach in the hot Summer Sun? Bad Combo... So I bring blotting sheets to remove to oil, and Powder to make sure it stays that way. I also bring the concealer because I sleep in the car, and I want to reapply any that rubs off. And then the retractable applicator is to apply the brush or bronzer from the pallet.

Next, the eyes:
I bring: 
The NYC Eyeliner Pencil in 926White
The ELF Regular and Waterproof Mascara Duo
The Hard Candy Gold Eyeliner
A Small Eyeshadow Brush
When you have been asleep in the car, you generally wake up looking more tired than when you went to sleep. I bring a White Eyeliner pencil to apply to my waterline and the inner corners to make myself look more awake. I don't generally recommend this ELF Mascara, but it is convient to keep in my makeup bag and travel with. Since the pallet I am bringing has Eyeshadow in it, I don't bring any others besides that. Also, I am looking for one of the small plastic eyelash curlers, you know the compact easy to throw into your makeup bag kind? If any of you know of a good one comment and tell me below! :)

If you can't tell I like Baby Lips :)
I am bringing: 
The Bath and Body Works Pineapple Juice Lipgloss
Burt's Bees Mango Butter Chapstick
Covergirl Outlast Lipstain in 415
Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss, Pink Punch, and Quenched

For my hair:
Hair Ties
Bobby Pins
A Foldable Travel Brush
Baby Powder
Bath and Body Works Butterfly Flower Hand Cream
Ok, at this point you probably think I'm insane. Hand Cream AND Baby Powder... as har products?? Yep, trust me, I know what I am talking about here! The Baby Powder can be used like Dry Shampoo, only it is more compact and easier to travel with. The Hand Cream can be used as, of course, a hand cream, and in your hair to calm frizz! Cheers for multi-use and compact products!!

Lastly, the miscellaneous things I bring:
They are:
A Mirror
Nail File
An Extra Contact 
Safety Pins
Bath and Body Works Winter Candy Apple Hand Sanitizer
and once again, the Hand Cream :)

And I put most all of it in this bag:
I generally leave out the Hand Cream and Brush, but everything else fits pretty well!
Also if you happen to be wondering, the bag is from Thirty-One. And then the keychains on the side: a string bracelet made and given to me by one of my best friends, a braided blue and green cord from a wedding reception, a Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizer, the wooden one with a turtle is from a souvenir shop on the Outer Banks. Small Back story? I got the turtle one on a class trip to the OBX a few years ago, me and my best friend have matching ones :)

I hope this may have helper you out in your packing endeavors, or given you some ideas as to what you would like to keep in your travel make up bag!
Have an Amazing Weekend!! 
:) <3 (:

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

My Petal Club

A new box!  And a PERIOD subscription box at that!  I love finding new boxes to try out, especially when they are this affordable!  This box is normally $6.99 per month, but if you use the discount code "SUMMER" on, this box will be only $3.50!  And let's be honest, one box of pads/tampons is usually more expensive than that, so why not give it a try??

So this box primarily consists of just the period products with very few extras.  This isn't one of the present, feel-good kind of boxes, it just provides you with the necessary products to get through the month, at an affordable price.
Step One The first thing you do on their website is choose the combination of products you will need.  Be warned, you aren't given as much of a selection if you order through Cratejoy like I did.  It worked totally fine and I still got the products I needed, but I like choice!  So I suggest going straight through their website.  You are going to get 30 products total…

Glossybox: August (A Cautionary Tale)

So let's talk about Glossybox...  Originally I subscribed when they had a special, three months for $30.  I thought it would be a cheaper way to try something new and see how I liked it, and maybe spice up my content.  I was sadly disappointed.  I wouldn't reccomend Glossybox to anybody.  My subscription was supposed to start in July, but that box never came.  I contacted them about it, and it took a month to get a reply simply saying they would look into it and get back to me the next day.  I waited another week before emailing them again, and at this point I was very upset.  After demanding a reply, explanation, and my box which I had paid for, lo and behold I finally received a tracking number, as well as 100 very useless "Glossydots."   I began to understand that this is not an individual problem and there were many people who didn't receive their boxes and were not getting a reply from their customer service department.  Yet they didn't seem to care.
