Homecoming VoxBox

I was so happy to have received another awesome box of free stuff in the mail!!
I love getting mail... Especially packages!

This is called the "Homecoming VoxBox"
I'm assuming this means it contains things such as school essentials, and things to make yourself look super cute for Homecoming court and Homecoming dances!  
Oh, and food, what High Schooler doesn't love food.

I'll start out with the given product description, and then give my personal opinion...
"Luden’s throat drops offer deliciously soothing relief of irritated throats. Enjoy 4 new flavors: WATERMELON, Strawberry-Banana, Blue Raspberry, and Green Apple."

I am not the type of person who reachers for cough drops every time they get sick, because I think they are disgusting, but apparently these taste like candy! 
So Watermelon for the win!

"Red Vines candy is the deliciously rewarding treat that has been making special moments even sweeter for generations. Whether you pick-up the classic tray at the movie theater concession stand or bring them on a family road trip, Red Vines candy has been an essential part of celebrating life’s sweet moments for decades."

I'm not a huge fan of these, but I also don't really like Twizzlers...  From what I have read though, these are much different than Twizzlers, and taste much more like licorice.  All of this aside, my boyfriend loves them so he will enjoy receiving these! 

"Discover a rush of moisture with new Olay Active Botanicals Refreshing Gel Cleanser. This gel cleanser washes away impurities, leaving skin soft, fresh, and ready or the next step in your daily skincare regimen. Restore hydration with the Olay Active Botanicals moisturizing hydra complex formulated with Snow Mushroom—a naturally-derived botanical that can hold up to 500x its weight in water. Used for centuries by women in China, this ancient secret has been updated for modern skincare. "

So... I have actually yet to try this because I have a very big event coming up and don't want to alter my skincare regimen before it, you understand right?
Despite this, I am very excited to try, and am expecting magic things to happen because of those mushrooms!

"Our Jalapeño chips have a zesty, south of the border flavor. Striking a perfect balance between fresh, well-rounded flavor and the clean, spicy bite of jalapeño peppers, these all natural chips are easy to eat with a satisfying burn that sneaks up on you."

Guys... my bag was open when I received them!  This made me very sad, but I decided to take my chances and try them anyway, for you all!  Consensus, they are super spicy, but really good, and surprisingly not stale considering the bag was open!

"Get over the top shine! Introducing SinfulColors SinfulShine 2 step manicure with with GelTech. 
Step 1: Apply 2 coats of our 27 vibrant colors!
Step 2: Seal with our top coat for added shine and wear!"

I was probably most excited about these.  I love red nail polish, and have actually been needing to buy a new top coat!  I can not answer for the wear right now, but overall I am super excited to see how it turns out!

These were the less fun paper things I received in this package.  The top card is talking about a scholarship that I am ineligible to apply for, the bottom left is the product description card, the bottom right is an advertisement for Sinful colors, and the middle is a laptop sticker!

Remember, all of these products were sent to me for free to review, but the opinions were completely my own!

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.
