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!"
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…

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…

SprezzaBox: September + Bonus Box!

You all may remember that I ordered a Sprezza box last year around this time of the year as a present for my boy.  If you want to see that box you can find it here!  I was amazed then, and then I ordered these and have been even more impressed!  These boxes are full of really nice quality products for men, and I love that there is a subscription company catering to the men in our lives and trying to make them dress better. When I ordered they were doing a promotion, which was the current box and a past box for $20.  I'm not sure if it is still active, but I used the code "BONUSBOX20" so you all can give it a shot!

The September box theme was "The Perry" with classic patterns, but heavier fabrics and darker colors for fall.

This box included: Bryt Dress Socks - $11.66FRESHeTech Earbuds - $29.95Peter Daniel Leather Bracelet - $10Sprezza Pocket Square - $18English Laundry Oxford Bleu Cologne - They said this small bottle was worth $20, but the full size 1.7 oz is …
