It's my Blogoversary!

Hi, my name is Bethany!  

I am an 18 year old freshman currently attending Mayland Community College.  While not at school, I work at a daycare as a teacher of the 5-12 year olds. 
I created this blog three years ago today in 2012.  At the time, I was a high school sophomore excited about going to the beach and in need of an outlet for projecting that.  That, my darlings, is how Summertime Sweety was born!  
Since then, the goals of this blog have slightly changed as I've matured.  Most of my posts now are focused around my life, including travel, as well as daily activities and special events.  I also enjoy posting about baking, makeup, subscription boxes, and hauls.  If you can't tell, it's a pretty eclectic mix, but, such is life!

If you are a returning visitor you will see that things have changed quite a bit over the past year.  Not long ago I completely revamped the look and layout of this blog, and within the last week I have changed a few minor things, and am still in the process of doing so.  I am currently taking an online blogging course in an effort to improve myself for you all!  So, my plan for the near future is to get out two posts to you all a week.  A makeup, cooking, planning, or packing post every Saturday, and lifestyle blog every Wednesday.  With all of the things currently on my plate, I'm not sure if this will be feasible, but I am going to give it my best effort, because I truly love writing and putting content out there for you all!

In closing, I would just like to thank any of you who have been there for me, and with me, through the past three years.  It hasn't always been a smooth and consistent journey, but seeing my original posts and the way they have changed, and improved make it worth it.  By no means do I plan to stop anytime soon, and I hope to see continued improvements  in my writing skills, passion, and quality of posts!

Thank you all, I love you, and Happy Blogoversary!

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 …
