Happy Thanksgiving!

I know this post is a little later than it would usually be, but I just wanted to tell you all how thankful I am for you. My blog has grown by leaps and bounds recently, and all of the credit goes to you all! I am so thankful for the opportunity to write and create, and share it with you.

 I am also very thankful for the friends and family I was blessed enough to have spent time with when we celebrated yesterday. We had some of the most people for dinner we'd had in years, and our house was overflowing with love, food, and thankfulness to be there together. 

I am thankful for my friends who I did not spend Thanksgiving with, as well friends who have been gone to college and returned safely for the Holiday.

I am incredibly thankful for the amazing boyfriend I have had for two years now. He has been such a blessing in my life, and I hope I have the chance to spend many more years with him!

More than anything I am thankful for God, my salvation, and all that he has blessed me with. This has not been an easy few months for my family, and we could not have made it without his help. I thank him for allowing my grandfather to survive the massive heart attack he had. I thank him for keeping my grandmother and dad safe during their time in the hospital. I thank him for helping me adjust to Community College and giving me a better attitude about it. Most of all I thank him for working within those around me who need him more than anything.

Finally, I would like to wish you all a happy and blessed Thanksgiving! I pray you have ample amounts of food and love in each of your houses on this day, and remember how blessed you are to be here in this world God created for us!

Also, if you are crazy enough to venture out Black Friday shopping tonight as I am, I wish you all the best of luck, and here are a few coupons to help you find those amazing deals! Be safe!

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…

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…
