What's in my... Carry on/Car Bag/Purse

This is the first in my new packing mini series titled "What's in my..." This series will continue through the first day of my vacation in about a week and a half!
This is a list explaining everything I am taking and showing you pictures if you would rather just have a collective list, click here
Are you excited, because i am! :)

This is all of the stuff that I want to have to keep me comfortable and entertained in the car on the way to the beach. This is a lot of stuff, and for some of you it might be too much, but this is what I like to take so I am :)

So this is the bag I am using. It is from Del Sol and it changes color in the Sun!! This is everything I am bringing as well, Watch me fit it all in there! ;)

This is the main pocket, in here I have...
  • A few different magazines, Seventeen, Vogue, that kind of thing
  • A Notebook, because my life would be over without a notebook, and I also have some stationary in the pockets
  • My book, right now I am reading Lord of The Rings! I know... I'm a dork ;)
  • My Kindle, if you have a tablet or smartphone I suggest updating it before you leave so you will have something to do on the ride or flight there
  • My Wallet, with cash and my I.D.
  • Phone, in the pocket of my wallet
  • Shiny Pennies and Quarters, for the penny squishers! (I will explain later...)
  • DVD case, we have a mini DVD player in our car
  • Earbuds
  • Extra Batteries for my camera, you can see them tucked down in there under the earbuds
  • Camera, becuase I would die without it!!
  • My Sunglasses will be floating around somewhere...
  • Chewing Gum
  • Travel Makeup Bag
  • Pencil Case

This is my Pencil Case, I use this for pencils and that kind of thing, but also for all of my smaller electronics that i don't want just floating around in my bag, in here I have...
  • A Travel Notebook, I got this on the Outer Banks last year, you can use it to record all of your vacation memories
  • Pens and Pencils
  • Lead and a Pencil Sharpener
  • Tape, because i could fix the world with tape...
  • Scissors, a lot of beauty gurus bring small scissors in their makeup bags, but I would rather have full size ones in here
  • My Penny Book. You know those penny squishers they have at memorials and theme parks? I collect those :) 
  • My Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Games, because I get bored easily :)
  • Booklight
  • An Extra SD Card for my camera
There are a few random things that I just like to have, that don't necessarily fit into my bag, or that has been packed somewhere else. 
Those Things Are...
  • Two Blankets, Because someone always ends up using the other one
  • Two Pillows, Because I am weird and have special pillows I want to have with me ;)
  • Snacks and Drinks, so you won't have to stop as often, but can stay full and hydrated

And that is it!! I hope you all enjoyed this post, look forword to more like this for the next week! 
:) <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…

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 …
