Beach Prep Haul! Walmart, Ulta, Target, TJ-Maxx...


Big Lots
  • I only got one thing specifically for the Beach from here, and it was the e.l.f. Eyeliner Smudge Sponge. I have wanted this for a while, and was so happy to finally find it in stores! :) I got it for $0.95

Ulta
  • The only thing I got at Ulta was NYX Cream Blush in I've been looking for a cream blush and this one was really pretty so I got it! It was originally $6.99, but I had a 20% off coupon and got it for $5.40 instead!
Walmart
  • The first thing I got was the equate Travel Sized Makeup Remover Wipes. It has ten wipes in it, I have never tried them before but I thought it would work just fine for my trip :) They were about a dollar.
  • Next, John Frieda Frizz-Ease Travel Size Curl Reviver Mousse. I have had one of the travel sizes of these before and it works well, so I bought another one. I got it for about a dollar as well.
  • I got the Maybelline Baby Lips in Grape Vine because I left my first one at my ex's house and I am obviously not getting that back ;) It was $2.99
  • I also got a double pack of Maybelline Baby Lips in Coral Crush and Twinkle. I now have every single color!! Except for the clear one and the peppermint one that is. I got these two for $5.98
  • If you remember in my "What's in my Makeup Bag" post (If you didn't see it, click here) I was totally and completely out of my Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Sandstorm, so I got another one! :) It was $3.97
  • I got a big 'ol bottle of equate Aloe Gel because no matter what I always get burnt! I am actually not really sure hom much this was...
  • Finally, I got the Coppertone Tanning Lotion SPF 15. I am so ready to go get tan on the beach!! :) It was $6.97

Tj-Maxx
  • These two things aren't necessarily mine, but I thought I would go ahead and include them in this anyway because they are Beachy and fun :) My little brother got a two pack of Goggles for swimming. One pair is only eye covers, the other pair covers his eyes and nose. He said I could have one pair, isn't that sweet :) They were somewhere around $6
  • We also got him a set of Arm Floaties. They are bands that go around his arms, you blow them up like a balloon and then they keep him from sinking! I know, something to keep him above water, and something so he can see under water, kind of confusing :) I'm not exactly sure how much they were.

Ross
  • I got the Bed Head "Dumb Blonde" Leave in Conditioner. If you saw my Packing List (before I updated it with this product, if you want to see it now click here) you saw that I was looking for a new good leave-in conditioner, so I am really excited to try this one! :) It was $4.50 at Ross, but is $14.99 at Ulta, so I would say I got a pretty awesome deal! :)
Local Discount Store
  • The first thing I got here was the combo pack of Bert’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus and Rose. I have two other colors and I really like those. They are normally $9.99, but I got mine for $4.00
  • The next thing I got was a repurchase, it was Covergirl Nature Luxe Foundation in Aspen. I was originally in Flax, but I couldn't find that color anywhere (since they are discontinuing this product) and I got aspen instead. It is originally $9.00 at my Walmart, but I got this one for $3.00
  • The last thing I got here was the Banana Boat Protective Tanning Oil SPF 8. I want to get tan this year!! :) I got this one for $1.99

Target
  • I thought this was the coolest thing ever!! It holds hairbows and it is called a Hairbow Doughnut. I got it for $2.50

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 mypetalclub.com, 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.
