Themed Presents: Movies

Though the other themed presents I have suggested were versatile, this one can be made completely your own!  It is perfect for the movie lover, and you can choose any movie you like! This was a present for my boyfriend for our first Christmas, and I chose Batman!

Let's start with the basics...
  • Popcorn Buckets - I bought one big one and two small ones to put in the back.  They are a little flimsy, but sturdier than a bag!  They are each from dollar tree for... well I think that is kind of obvious.
  • Candy - The dollar boxes of movie candy (also from Dollar Tree!) are necessary for this present to give it that real movie feel.
  • Popcorn -  You can't go to a movie without popcorn!  You can go very basic and get cheaper popcorn, or go for some crazy flavors (I currently have salted caramel in my pantry!), or be super simple and easy and buy them a bag of the really good already popped stuff.
Now after you've got the basic staging of the presents has been done, it's time to get into the real present part!  My boyfriend already had the movies (just like every other movie known to man), so that wasn't an option...  I chose to get him a gift certificate for two tickets to the movies, a Batman lanyard, and a huge movie poster!  
But as I said you could go many ways with this, and the more popular the movie is, the more options you have!  
You could get them a wallet, Christmas ornament, the actual movies, the soundtrack, a spinoff or cartoon version of the movie, a shirt, boxers, pajamas... 
The possibilities are endless!

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…

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…
