Themed Presents: Truffles All Around!

I know I have mentioned this to you all before, but I love giving presents.
I love giving presents even more when they are themed!  Something seems just so pretty and put together when presents are all cohesive around one theme.
Therefore, this year I thought it might be fun to have a little mini series in preparation for Christmas of some super cute themed presents

And my first one is...
Because who doesn't like truffles?
For this present I chose a combination of bath products called "Tub Truffles", and chocolate truffles!

The tub truffles are a bath melt, you place them in hot water and they begin to melt and flow through the water.  I ordered the Warm Vanilla Sugar scent, and they truly look and smell edible!  As they melt they release their scent, and make the water feel so soft and silky!  They are made from cocoa butter, so not only does the water feel amazing, so does your skin!  You can get them for $14.99-$15.99 on Alexis Clare's Etsy shop, Whipped Up Wonderful
If you prefer bath bombs or bubble bars (both of which I recently ordered!) she has a wide selection of those, as well as perfume, face masks, "bath macaroons," and much more.  She also offers a monthly bath bomb subscription service!  
Not only does this shop provide gorgeous products, she also has free shipping, wonderful (and fast!) customer service, and a beautiful Christian attitude.  We spoke recently, and she was generous enough to provide a coupon code just for you all!  Enter "SAWYOUONTHEWEB" at checkout and you will receive 10% off your entire order!  But here is the catch, if you want to order this for someone for Christmas and insure it arrives in time you MUST order before December 7th!

For the chocolate truffle piece of the present, what you get really depends on how much you want to spend!  
You can go the route I have shown here and buy Lindor Truffles for $3 to $4 a bag.  
You can go more expensive with Godiva truffles and get a small four piece box for $10, a bag of assorted truffles for $12, a six piece flight for $16, twelve pieces for $30, twenty-four for $50, or a gift set that can range anywhere from $42 to the "Grand Holiday Luxury Basket" at $375!!  They are actually running a special right now where you can get a four, six, eight, nine, or nineteen piece set, with a $25 Godiva gift card for $33 to $55, which is a pretty great deal!
Finally, there is always the option of making truffles yourself!  My friend Anina, who did a guest blog post here of Saturday, has a recipe for red velvet cake balls similar to truffles that were amazing!  If you prefer the traditional chocolate route, search "homemade chocolate truffles on Google or Pinterest and you will be flooded with decadent results!
Chocolate truffles can get very expensive, very fast...  But, there are many options and it is completely up to you how much you have to spend.  A box of homemade truffles would be just as thoughtful as a $50 box!  

That being said, in my mind the perfect version of this gift would be a gift basket with a Holiday themed flight of truffles and a gift card, a box of tub truffles (and maybe a bath bomb or two...), and a bottle of champagne (or sparkling grape juice for those of us who can't drink!).  You could also fill it out by adding in a bath pouf, bubble bath, bath salts... the possibilities are endless!  
And this isn't just a "Christmas present," it would also be perfect for a Birthday, Anniversary, Wedding, or Valentines day! This is an absolutely gorgeous gift in general, and perfect to carry straight to the whirlpool tub for a ready made bath!

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.
