Spring Break 2016

Well I just finished an extremely short Spring Break... I was only given two days last week! Isn't that sad?  But hey, I had the most of it!

I started out Spring Break (on Wednesday night) with a bonfire for my friend's birthday!  We have the perfect bonfire spot beside a river, and in the river lives otters!  It was too dark to see them that night, but they are my favorite animal, and I am looking foreward to many Summer bonfires with our otter friends! 
I have never really been into the whole eno hammock thing, but my friend brought a double so I though, why not??  It was surprisingly comfortable, and we had a lot of fun celebrating her birthday together!

But now the main event of Spring Break... On Thursday Maze (my boyfriend) and I went to a Flogging Molly concert in Charlotte!  

But first I made him take me to South Park Mall, because it looked insane!!  And it was, though it took longer to get to Charlotte than we thought it would so we only got to spend like an hour...  But I made a plan and I hit the stores that I wanted to see most in that hour!
First we went to Lush, which I'd looked at online but have never bough anything from before.  I limited myself to one bubble bar right now, and I chose "Pop in the Bath" which is described as orange flower and bergamot.

I have been hearing about The Container store from Jen from PrettyNeatLiving on YouTube for years now, but I don't have one near me!  So I made sure to hit up this store, but I could have spent much longer and much more money than I actually did...
So I found a trashcan for my dorm next year

As well as a paper sorter which was on sale, this cute little white bowl (that I wanted, but don't know what to do with!), and a tin for my Lush Bubble Bar!

So how about a little concert OOTD to go with the mini haul?
My tank top is from American Eagle
My cardigan was a Christmas gift
My jeans are American Eagle from TJ-Maxx (!)
My shoes are Sanuks
My phone case is Dooney and Bourke from the Dillard's outlet (I got it for $2!)

But anyway, it was a wild concert... Like mosh pit in the front, throwing alcohol kind of wild... But we stayed towards the back of the scary-ness and it was really awesome!  If you haven't ever listened to Flogging Molly I suggest giving them a try, they have been around since the late '90s and have a really classic Folk Rock Irish sound, it is really interesting!

The Charlotte skyline as we left the concert... As pretty as this view is, I could never handle living in the city!  After the concert we went to something similar to an amped up Waffle house for dinner (at one in the morning), and maybe it was just because we were really hungry, but I was impressed!  We both had omelets (mine was a Greek with tomatoes, spinach and feta) with hash browns, it was the perfect post concert, half asleep before a three hour drive home food.

And then Maze was sweet and let me sleep all the way home while he drove.  I woke up to this Snapchat... I love him :)

Other than that my weekend was pretty uneventful!  It was Maze's Spring Break as well, as we hung out every day from the Sunday before mine started until he left on Saturday night!  We had a lot of fun hanging out together hanging out and going on picnics, but the concert was by far the most interesting thing we did.

After he left, I spent the day Sunday with my family, and we went to see Zootopia!
It was the second time I'd seen it, and it was just as good the second time!  If you are planning on seeing it, make sure and watch out for the two Frozen references and the Breaking Bad reference.

And then on Monday, life went back to normal with school!

Oh, and by the way, #AppSaidYes!!
When I announced to you all in my January and February Life Update that I would be attending Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina in the Fall, I actually didn't know if I was in yet... But I was staying positive and praying for the letter to come, and on Monday it finally did!

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 mypetalclub.com, 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.
