Two Years and Counting!

So as I said in my "Get Ready With Me" post on Wednesday, my Anniversary is actually on a Monday, and that Monday just happens to be his mom's Birthday as well, so needless to say, we chose another day!  We celebrated on Saturday, October 3rd, and let me tell you, it was absolutely amazing!
He arrived at my house more dressed up than I've ever seen him (other than when he is forced to be!)
Aren't we just adorable and matchy? 

We left around seven to make our eight o'clock reservation at The Peddler Steakhouse in Boone, NC.  I most definitely approve of this place!

Considering it was our Anniversary, I didn't feel it would be appropriate to be taking pictures... But I did find this picture online, and it is the EXACT meal I had!
So, I chose Teriyaki Steak with a baked potato, and it was amazing.  I'm not usually a big steak person, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one, and took most of it home for lunch the next day!
For dessert we had a Tollhouse Pie with ice cream! And decided to most definitely come back for dessert very soon, because there were so many that sounded amazing...

After dinner we went back to his dorm and did presents!
Guys, he did so well :)

The first thing he got me is the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2016, because as you all found out in my Disney Announcement, I'm going to be going at the end of this year!  He also chose to get me this, because we have spent hours now, on multiple occasions, cuddled up in Barnes and Noble as I explain to him all the ins and outs of Disney!

Also on one of our Barnes and Noble dates, which are some of my favorites, he read this kids book to me! So he bought it for me, to read to our kids one day :)

The third thing he got me is Honey by Marc Jacobs.  We were just walking through Ulta one day when I pointed out that I thought this perfume was super cute and I really liked it.  I had no idea he'd go back and get it!  But it made me super happy!

The final thing he got me probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense, so let me tell you the story behind it... Earlier this summer I'd went running with one of my friends up our road.  We were about two miles from the closest house, with no cell service, and look off the side of the road to see a mama bear and her two cubs staring straight at us...  We had to turn and sprint away until we couldn't run anymore and by the grace of God found cell service so we could call someone to pick us up!  Since then, everyone has made fun of us for being scared saying that they see bears around here all the time!  Well let me tell you, seeing them two miles from civilization is much different than seeing them in a zoo or from the window of your house.  Maze is one of those people that has made immense fun of me, so to continue he bought me Bear Repellant Spray!
...Which I hope I never have to use.

He probably did the best with presents that he ever has! And definitely beat me this time!  I got him a Beatles shirt, CD, 3D Abby Road Shadow Box Picture, and Yellow Submarine Contacts case.  
After doing presents we hung out at his dorm for a little while, and then he took me home!

Overall, it was an amazing night!

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.
