New Years Resolutions

I have been so M.I.A the past... what? 6 months? Year? I'm pretty sure if I was an actual missing person I would be assumed to be dead by now.
Are we past the point of apologies? Because I think we are. If I did it again you probably wouldn't even take me seriously, so I'm not going to! 

If you haven't already noticed there have been quite a few big changes to the layout of this blog! As for the core, important things, they are the same, I just figured it was time for a new look! I have grown up quite a bit since I created this blog, and not only this, but the content and goals have been slightly altered since the beginning as well, so along with that I reformatted and am going to try to turn over a new leaf :)

In my College Transfer Success class this past semester, I learned something very important.  Goals need to be specific, they need to be time bound, and they need to be feasible.  
My first goal for the new year is to improve upon this blog so that I can be like the YouTube stars who don't work and spend their life on their websites.
But does that meet any of the above criteria?
My first goal is to create one well written post per week, so that by mid year I can have 20 subscribers.
Does that meet the criteria?

My New Years Resolutions are...

  1. My first goal is to exercise 1-2 times per week, not necessarily yo lose weight, but to gain muscle and become more fit
  2. To drink 1-2 cups of water per day, and drink one soft drink or less per week
  3. To finish assignments when they are assigned (therefore not procrastinate) so that I may be overall less stressed
  4. To take one day per week to work on college and scholarships
  5. To read my Bible or Devotional and pray daily, as well as work harder at paying attention and being more involved with my church 
  6. And finally, to create one well written post per week, so that by mid year I can have 20 subscribers.
I hope you all had a wonderful New Years, and I hope that whatever Resolutions you have made for yourself you can stick to them! :)

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 …
