Birthday Trip: Days 1 and 2

Day 1

Well my alarm went off half an hour ago and I just can't bring myself to get up... But today is the start of my birthday weekend!!
You all may remember the announcement I made that I would be going to Disney this week. Well... We ended up canceling that because my parents were worried about it. So now we are going this Summer, and tonight, we are leaving for Pigeon Forge!
Today I am wearing:
A black shirt from TJ-Maxx/Ross
Leggings from Rue 21
Boots from Belks
Necklace from Belks

Just got out of my English class, and presented my Bio project that I am missing later this week! Now I have to finish a paper and my computers homework, have a teacher proof read my papers, and I'll be heading home!

Im currently having a super interesting lunch of amazing homemade chicken salad and pumpkin dessert from Thanksgiving, with carrots!

Headed home to finish packing!

On our way to Pigeon Forge!

We made it to our room and this place is so cute!!
Parent's bed, we had bunk beds right beside them!


Look at the adorable, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash!

She also left a sample of the Farm House Fresh Sweet Cream body lotion.  It smelled soooo good!

Now we are on our way to eat at the restaurant in the Resort!

A lot of restaurants will leave games at the table, but here they left rocks!  I'm not sure of the purpose, but aren't they cute!

 We did the family style dinner and had tomato cheddar bread with pickles,

 strawberry pecan salad, 

 pot roast, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, 
and apple donuts with custard sauce for dessert!
It was heavenly!

We just finished dinner and exploring, and both were great!
The fountain at the front of the resort...

The outdoor pool

A wall of all of her movies, plays, and records!

The boys found a game room...

So mom and I just chilled!

And then we found the fireplace... And I never wanted to leave.

Currently sitting beside the fireplace in the lobby (in pajamas...) 

finishing the papers I have that are due Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday! If I have to do homework though, this isn't a bad way to do it!

Just got back to the room and finally into bed! These bunk beds we have are sleeping bag style, so I have to zip myself in... This place is just adorable.

Goodnight you all!

Day 2

So we all woke up at 7:30 this morning… 7:30, on a vacation. Why? I do not know! But we just kind of chilled in the room and got ready at a very leisurely pace… I had a pop tart for breakfast, which it super exciting. Now we are off to go shopping!

Today I am wearing:
Tank top from Maurice's
Flannel from Rue 21
Jeans from American Eagle
Watch from Bass
Earrings were a present for my boyfriend from Maurice's
Boots from Belks

We just left TJ-Maxx… 3 hours, in just one store. Now to Ulta and Hobby Lobby!

Lunch at Wendy's 
and a quick trip to Tanger Outlets!

Just left Tangers! I hit up Bath and Body Works, Vera Bradley, Michael Kors, Rue 21 and Kirklands! I only bought things at Vera Bradley and Kirklands though, so not much damage!

On our way to Dollywood! Because we are staying at the resort, they provide transportation and a special entrance, just like a baby Disney!
We were the only ones on the bus!

To the park I am wearing:
Cami from Aeropostale
White shirt from Ross or TJ-Maxx
Flannel from American Eagle
Jeans from American Eagle

Just sat down to watch Dolly's version of A Christmas Carol!

She even put herself in it!

Just got on the trolley to go back to the resort! After the Christmas Carol we rode a few rides, and watched the parade!

We were the only ones even at the ride for Tennessee Tornado

Look at the lights!

And then Rudolph telling us goodbye!


Going to get Krispy Kreme Doughnuts!

Red Velvet!

(And apparently that is where I fell asleep...)

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.
