Outer Banks 2013: Day 5, Tuesday June 11th

9:00 AM
Just woke up :) I am learning to sleep straight through my brother waking up at ungodly times ;) We made a run to Food Lion again last night to get some more of the Blueberry Cream Cheese muffins for Breakfast, so I had one of those. I think I am in love! They are just amazing :)
The more I look the more places I find on me that are sunburned! We decided to spend the day off of the beach today, so maybe it will feel better by tomorrow :)

10:10 AM
I know I don't usually do favorites posts or anything, so can I add a small one into here? It is the L'oreal Magic Skin BB Cream. 
I had never really fallen into the BB Cream craze because I have oily skin and it just sounded like a tinted moisturizer. My mom bought this one and I just decided to try it, I love it! It has a very matte finish, so it is perfect for me :) My only issue with it is that my mom got the medium shade and I think it might be a little dark/orange-y on me. But either way, it is a great product :)
Now that that little rave is over, we are on our way to the Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium! :)

1:10 PM
Just got out of the Aquarium! I love that place :) All of the fish just look so pretty :)

Otters are my favorite :)

Something left a trail...

NC's official bird -_-

My favorite animal at the aquarium :) This poor little turtle has to many problems to count!

Elijah taking care of his turtle :)

And now we are off to Dairy Queen for lunch! That is one of the higjlights of coming to Emerald Isle, because we don't have one at home and we love it! :)

2:45 PM
Just got out of Dairy Queen! I had a Chicken wrap with fries, and for desert I had a s'mores blizzard.  

Ohhhhhhhh my gosh guys, it was so good!! It had gram crackers and pieces of marshmallow filled chocolates. I want another one this week definitely :) We just crossed over to the mainland, getting ready to go bowling at Mac Daddy's! :)

4:00 PM
Just finished bowling! 

...and I came in dead last

...and fell on my butt. I blame these ugly shoes!
Now we are headed to the Emerald Plantation Shopping center! :)

7:00 PM
Just left Emerald Plantation! They have a lot of cute stores, that aren't neccesarly chain stores. One of my favorite ones to go to is the Country Store, because it has rows and rows of tacky beach junk ;) But I did buy stuff there, so apparently I like tacky beach junk! :) They also have a combination Candy Store and Toy Store, so I got some candy :) They are one of the candy stores that have bins of the "old" candy, and I always like those :) Now we are on our way to go eat at Port of Call! :)

8:30 PM
Just finished dinner! :) I had "Burried Treasure" which is just potato wedges with cheese, bacon, and onions :)
They were good, but I got full quick! :) I really liked that we got to sit beside the window and watch the sun set while we ate, which was pretty :)
Now we are on our way to play putt-putt golf again!

10:15 PM
Just finished playing at the Lighthouse, which was a lot of fun :)
I am the only one out of my family who has yet to get a hole in one... I need to work on that ;)

1:00 AM
Wow... this is the latest I've stayed up in a while! Once again, I got caught up in reading :) Well I think I am going to keep tonight's farewell short and simple, because I am tired! Goodnight everyone, love you all :)

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.
