Get Ready with Me: Prom Edition!

Yes it's been a month since I've written a post, I'm well aware, but I am coming back full force with one worth waiting for!! Who doesn't want to relive prom again, and this time you can relive it with me!

A little OOTD pre-prom edition.  
The flannel shirt is from American Eagle
The shorts are Nike
The Hair and Makeup are nonexistent
The planner is my most favorite possession!

As you can see, I am putting my planner to good use.  I had planned the heck out of this weekend, mostly because I was so excited!! See all the little sticky note lists covering all other days besides prom?

Prom Festivities began that morning as I woke up at 8 a.m. (after staying up until 1 the night before prepping...) when I went to pick up Maze's boutonniere.

And then went to get my hair done!
This is what I saw when I came in and just had to share a picture of it! My best friend and I decided to get ready together, which meant taking turns getting out hair done, and then her coming back to my house to do makeup!





Snacking through the primping

Makeup!


And then Maze came :)

Giving him his boutonniere...

Getting my corsage...

Shoes!

Corsages!



With my Memaw :)

So, we had to take a redneck picture, just as a joke :)


Fixing each other and making funny faces, just like always :)

Playing Cinderella!

Let's go!

My neighbor, who is like my sister, just had a baby, so I had to go visit them at the hospital :)  

They were all joking that this could be a teen pregnancy awareness or birth control ad!

Finally, it was time to meet up with my big group of friends.

In honor of our favorite Marine History Teacher!



Such a personality picture...

Let's go eat!

Before prom I went with a group of fourteen, I repeat fourteen, people to Outback in Johnson City, so we had to meet early.  It truly could not have been more perfect, we had so much fun!

I love how the actual time at prom is such a minor detail of the day.  Our prom theme this year was "Love You Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran... do you know how that can be a prom theme? Because I still don't! From what I can figure, there were lot's of flowers, so our theme was like English Countryside maybe? They had good intentions, but a low decoration budget. We had a lot of fun though, and were the last ones to leave during the last song! 
Plus, my best friend was Prom Queen!!

After prom the same group from before prom, minus a few, went to my friend's camp up in the middle of NOWHERE to play paintball after prom.  Hear that? Paintball. In the dark. At 2 a.m. On the side of a mountain! In theory we thought it sounded really fun, the execution was a little fuzzy... We were just shooting through brush in the general area of glowsticks. Once most of us (besides Maze and my friend) ran out of ammo we had to regroup to get more.  But then decided we were bored with this and just unloaded on the two of them!  They weren't exactly happy...

After Paintball we all went back to the Bonfire to hang out.  About 4-5 a.m. everyone had slowly left or went to sleep leaving me and two of my friends.  It was then we made the horrid decision to stay up all night and watch the sunrise!  We spent the remainder of the night stoking the fire, avoiding the smoke and rain, talking out of our heads, and planning the next day!

We left my friend's camp around 7:30 in the morning to go home and sleep a couple of hours, before festivities began again!

The three of us slept like 4 hours, got up, and went to Linville Caverns with my boyfriend and his friend!


Overall, it was truly an amazing weekend, and I couldn't have asked for a better one :)

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.
