What's in my... Beach Bag!

I would like to start out this post by saying, I don't understand those Beauty Gurus on YouTube who are like:
"I am bringing this hair gel, and this lipstick, and this foundation, and this 500 color eyeshadow pallet, and while I'm at it I might as well bring my blowdryer! There must be  plug-ins under all of that icky sand... Oh! And who could forget their floor length evening gown to just 'throw on' after a fabulous day at the beach!"
..........Seriously?
I love watching YouTube videos, but it is kind of ridiculous how much useless stuff they bring with them down to the Beach.
When I am going to the beach, I am packing the things that it takes to walk from my condo to the beach, and back. That's it. So I don't need a change of clothes or makeup to put on before we go out to eat. Because, more than likely, I am going to go back to the condo and shower before I go anywhere.
Maybe some of you will do that, but while reading this post just keep in mind, i don't.


So here is my beach bag, I am not exactly sure where it came from....

And here is what I keep in the Main Pocket
  • My Sunglasses
  • My Pink Straw Beach Mat, it rolls up into it's own little bag with handles, isn't that cute :)

  • Magazine, I usually just grab one from my carry on/car bag (see that post here)
  • Book, sometimes... depends on the day
  • Beach Towel, I love my Flip-Flops one!
  • Makeup Bag, and I use that word lightly ;)


Here is my Makeup Bag 
Notice, there is no makeup in my makeup bag ;)
  • Bobbie Pins, You will begin to notice that I have these things ev-er-y-where
  • Hairbows, in case the one I'm wearing breaks
  • Headbands, in case the bobby pins just aren't cutting it
  • Bert's Bees Lifeguard Chapstick, because your lips can burn too!
  • Hand Sanitizer, dirty bathrooms, yucky sticky hands, you never know! It's just good to have around
  • Camera, I keep it inside a sandwich bag, inside my makeup bag. I don't want to chance getting water or sand in it! It isn't in there right now because I am using it to take pictures :)
  • Extra Batteries, for my camera, and stored with my camera.
  • Phone... sometimes, I don't usually bring my phone down to the beach but once in a while I will, If I do I will put it in the sandwich bag with my Camera
  • Sunscreen, like i have said before, you need it. No matter what you say, you do burn, and you do need it.
And just a few Random Things you might want to bring...
Beach Toys!! Because what is going to the beach if you don't have toys :)

And that is it!

Talk to you all in a few days!

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…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
