Planner and Decor Haul

So, I have done some (meaning way too much) shopping recently, and I thought it might be fun to let you all in on some of the purchases I have made that are slightly atypical for me!  Usually when I shop I am focused on buying obnoxious amounts of clothing and makeup which I most certainly do not need.  Instead, I have recently been purchasing obnoxious amounts of room decor and planner accessories, that I also do not need!
Along with the clothing and makeup...
Good trade off right?

The first store I hit up (twice actually) was Target.  You guys, that dollar section at the front of the store gets me every time! It is like a vortex that slowly sucks you in until you are buying fairy wands and bowls with straws and believing that these things have completely legitimate purposes!

A bought quite a few things from that dollar section on this trip, including: Chevron Burlap ribbon, a bronze cut out candle holder, a metal bucket, and polka dot coasters!

The burlap I have used as a runner on my bookshelf, under the candle holder!  To be a dollar each, they have made very cute fall (and possibly beyond) decorations!

The coasters I saw the first time I was in Target, carried them around, and then changed my mind because I didn't think I needed them.  When I got home I noticed the water rings on my bedside table... therefore coasters were purchased.
The bucket has yet to find a place or a purpose, but it's cute!

I also ended up buying a few random things, which consequently, were the only things bought out of the dollar section!

I bought two tank tops that can be worn in the Summer, or layered in the Fall, as well as a gap shoulder shirt that I have been loving!  All of which were on sale, the only way I like things!
Finally, I also bought a Rimmel Matte Kate Lipstick in Rosetto

I truly love this store...  

This first things I bought, which I plan to use to decorate my planner!
There were so many to choose from, but I finally decided on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Mickey Christmas Sticker books!
See the Mickey one in the middle?  I plan to use those during the week we go to Disney!
Planner Stickers on Etsy are crazy expensive, and you don't have to have those to make your planner cute!

In the decorating department I bought a "B", because I am the epitome of white girl, and it was $1.50

My random purchases from this store included blank cards that were on sale, because I'm a horrible person and still haven't written thank you notes for graduation presents, and an adorable glass cup!

For some reason, my Walmart has had crazy sales on some furniture items recently!

My room is crazy dim, and I have been wanting to buy a lamp for a while, but have just never gotten around to it.  I was going through the sale section and found this 5'11" silver lamp (which I put together myself) for $5!  To be a cheap Walmart lamp, it helps the lighting in my room tremendously.

I also bought Candy corn to out in a dish in my room as decoration, because it tastes like sugary wax and I don't recommend eating...

I am so incredibly in love with this Etsy shop, I just placed my third order this week, and my second ever was within the past month! 
My planner is an addiction which I just can not overcome...
But do I really want to?

In the second order I placed I bought: Disney Countdown Stickers(middle), 50 random punches(bottom), a pocket and washi planner kit(top left), a Christmas punches and washi planner kit(top right) and a random washi sample card(top middle), and a sticker sample gift from her(right middle)!

I placed my third order through a crazy Facebook sale she was having.  I ordered a Cupcake/washi/sticker planner kit, and Halloween washi tape, which I haven't received yet to take a picture of!

If you would like to see my first order ever from this shop check out this post!

And that is basically all I have bought!
Though I shop on the cheap, I have done entirely too much of it recently and I need to stop...  But I'm so excited about all I have gotten, and definetly suggest checking these things out!

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…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's

Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
