December Date Box

Datebox is a subscription for primarily married couples, but it works for anyone with a significant other!  The point, is to get married couples to sit down once a moth, and have a date night to themselves.
I had never heard of this subscription box before, until I was scrolling through my Instagram feed one day and saw someone promoting it, with a promo code!
You all know how I can't resist good deals...
This box is normally about $35 per month, plus $5 shipping... That is expensive.
But I paid only the shipping! And that makes it fun!

So as you could probably guess, this month was Christmas themed...

Here is the look at the inside, and let it be known that I cleared out an abundance of bubblewrap before taking the picture, so it was well packaged!

The first thing I pulled out was these two mugs that say "Baby it's cold outside" and "I've got your love to keep me warm," so sweet!

And then they sent hot chocolate to go in them!

I was super excited about the main gift though... Maze and I had just been looking at one of these in a store last weekend, and talking about how we hadn't built a gingerbread house since we were kids.
And then Ta Da! This appeared

It even came with tons of candy and icing to put it together with!

They also sent a card with the url to a Christmas Playlist you have access to, as well as information about the Gingerbread House contest they are having! With the grand prize being a trip to Maui!
So if you love me, head over to my Instagram (www.instagram.com/bethanyallen15) tonight and like our Gingerbread House, because the contest is based on likes!

So would I have paid $40 for this?  Not a chance, but I am really really excited about it for $5! I understand their prices have to be higher than some boxes because they are a newer company starting out, but still.
So, if you would like to try this for only $5, go to www.getdatebox.com, and enter "Bethke" at checkout!

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…

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…
