Outer Banks 2013: Day 9, Saturday June 15th

6:00 AM
We woke up early this morning so me and mom could walk down to the beach and watch the sunrise :)

7:00 AM
Just got back :) we found a lot of really pretty seashells and watched the sunrise behind buildings/over the water ;) 

Now we are getting ready to leave and finishing up our repacking. I got most of my stuff packed up last night, but I have a few things left. I just had breakfast, a Krispy Kreme Doughnut again :)

9:00 AM
Finished packing any getting ready, we just loaded the car, and we are now ready to go! We are on our way up the Outer Banks today, but first we are going to stop off at Emerald Plantation again :)

11:00 AM
We just left Emerald Plantation, and now we are on our way off the Island :( We are heading up the coast to the Roanoke Aquarium, and then on over the Kill Devil Hills to stay a few nights!

4:00 PM
Well instead of going straight to Kill Devil Hills, we ended up stopping at a shopping center in Morehead city... Which kind of messes up our plans to go to the Aquarium today, but who cares! I got to go shopping :) We went to Ross and TJ-Maxx, and then I found an Ulta and I used the rest of an old gift card, and of course we had to hit up a Walmart while we were there! ;) We let my little brother pick where to have lunch, so we ended up at a McDonalds -_-

7:00 PM
At this moment we are driving throught Kill Devil Hills and Nags head looking for our hotel, and I am hungry! ;) I have read and slept for four hours and I am ready to get out of this car and do something! :)

9:00 PM
We ended up eating at Applebees, which was good :) Me and mom shared a three way sampler platter. It had Spinach Dip, Quezon Dip, and Cheeseburger Sliders. This is the first night that we ordered a dessert and ohhhhh my gosh! It was so good! It was Cheesecake filled fried tortillas that had been rolled in cinnamon sugar, and served with cooked apple and ice cream... We ordered it to share but I could have eaten the whole thing by myself!!

11:00 PM
We are back at our hotel and we are all tukered out! The hotel is nice, just a basic hotel room :) well I think I am going to bed... 'night guys! :)

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.
