Ipsy October

First of all, the bag for October? Super cute.
I mean, they have all been adorable, but this would be such a cute pop of color kind of clutch!

As far as the bag goes, it wasn’t my favorite, but I liked it!

The first thing I pulled out of the bag, also the least impressive and most expensive, were the tweezers.  They are from a company centered in another country, and with the exchange rate equaled out to about $20! 
I don’t generally pluck my eyebrows, and the tweezers I had weren’t great.  So though they aren’t my favorite thing I’ve ever gotten, it is a really nice product which I will put to use!

The next thing I got, which I was super excited to see, was an It Cosmetics Hello Lashes Mascara!
This is the first really nice makeup item I've received, and I am loving it! Just a couple of coats and your lashes are super long and dark.

I also received this Eve-NYC Hair Mask.  This is like a very thick conditioner, and smells faintly sweet, a bit like candy and vanilla.  It was a nice hair mask, but I wouldn't run out to repurchase it.

One of the things I have used the most and been the most excited about is the Peter Lamas Pumpkin Facial Scrub.  I swear, I could eat this stuff!  It smells so amazing.  It's not as course of a scrub as the St Ives Apricot scrub (my favorite), but it has been a fun little treat for the fall!

The final thing, which I have been using nonstop, is The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Committed.  This is the perfect your lips but better fall color, and I've really been loving it!  It is a mini sample size, so though that means there is less product, it is the perfect size to just stick in my wallet and go!

Overall, it was a really good bag!

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.
