Themed Presents: Beatles

For this music themed present, I chose to do the Beatles.  This was an ironic choice for me, because I hate the Beatles with a burning passion… I know, that is sacrilege to some people, but I just really hate them!  My boyfriend on the other hand, loves them, and takes every opportunity to play their music to get on my nerves!

This present wasn’t as much chosen, as the pieces just kind of fell together.  As I said in my Guide to Christmas Shopping post, I like to get my shopping done early, and when there are sales!

At one the millions of “biggest sales of the year!” at Old Navy over the Summer, I found this really cool Beatles t-shirt for super cheap.  It is so soft, and looks like a movie poster/ticket! This was around $7.

At Ross, which is another one of my favorite stores, they have a whole wall of really nice framed pictures and canvases.  I found this shadow box style picture a few months later, and when I bought it I wasn’t even thinking about the t-shirt, it just worked out!  It is set back in the frame, and the picture is made of the ridged 3D material, so it looks like the Beatles are popping out and walking across the frame! This was $5.99

The silly part of the present that I always have to include, was a Submarine Contacts case!  You know, like the Yellow Submarine? I may hate them, but I’m not completely Beatles illiterate!  This was a couple of dollars from Forever 21.

Finally, the really ironic part of this present was this CD… And there is a story behind it.  Maze and I were in his truck one day this Summer with the windows down, and he hands me a Beatles CD.  I just laid it down, because there was no way I was going to put it in!  He was like “I figured you’d act like you were going to throw it out the window or something!”  So I go to pretend like I am… and then let go… Neither of us could believe it, and he has given me heck about it since! I got this off of Amazon for $8.98

And that was the complete present!  He has really seemed to like it, and displayed the picture on his desk in his dorm.  
This could easily be done around any band, you just have to keep your eyes out!

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.
