Spring Break Essentials (Vegas Edition!)

When going on Spring Break there are some basic essentials everyone needs, but when going to Vegas on Spring Break?  You have to have your packing list down to a "T"!
I was inspired by's One Bag or Bust initiative, along with multiple other bloggers, to each pick up to five of our own Spring Break essentials, and these are mine!
  1. Cute Koozie - This would have to be my first essential, because no matter what kind of drink you have on hand, it is going to get hot quick in that Vegas heat.  Keeping it iced or frozen and in a Koozie is an essential for keeping your drink... drinkable.  They have a set of two super cute and girly ones in the Target dollar section right now for $3!
  2. Water Bottle - Along with that Koozie, you are going to need a good water bottle to stay hydrated!  The heat intense and will quickly dehydrate you, but if you are also drinking?  That is an all day hangover waiting to happen...  So, go one for one.  For every alcoholic drink you have have a cup of water, and make sure to pregame your pregame with plenty of water as well.  You might pee your brains out like this, but won't it be worth it to be able to function the next day??
  3. Your ID - If you plan on using that Koozie or putting the water plan into action, you are going to need your ID.  This is probably a given, especially if you are planning on being the DD (designated driver), but it is worth giving your wallet one last check before leaving the house and hotel, just to make sure.
  4. A Cute Bikini and Cover Up - Moving away from all of the drinking, it is going to be HOT, and if you are lucky enough to be staying at one of the hotels with an awesome pool, you need to put that to use!  Pick out your cutest bikini (or buy a new one) and wear it with confidence!  Also, make sure to pack a cover up like a little dress or sarong which you can throw on and wear to the poolside bar, snack bar, or up to your room without feeling self conscious.
  5. Sunscreen - Finally, if you are swimming or not, you have the potential to be out in the hot sun while shopping, walking to your hotel, or visiting attractions.  Pick a high SPF with a more natural smell, that way you can prevent sunburn while not feeling sticky or smelling like a tourist. 

I don't know about you, but of all the Las Vegas Hotels, I'd love to say at the Venetian... I would also be making a beeline for the best Spa I could find, possibly Canyon Ranch, but hey, I'm not picky!  I'd love to try out the casinos... but with a set amount of money, because I'm not going to loose all my money there!  Shopping is also a must, probably a live show or two, and definitely dinner at Hard Rock cafe!
I have made my imaginary trip plan.

I hope these essentials help you out, and that you take advice from some of the other ladies who have contributed as well!

**Small Disclaimer: I am in fact underage, and don't plan to be drinking or gambling like this any time soon!  Regardless, these are tips (such as with the water) I have read up on, learned, and been given that you can still trust!**

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…

SprezzaBox: September + Bonus Box!

You all may remember that I ordered a Sprezza box last year around this time of the year as a present for my boy.  If you want to see that box you can find it here!  I was amazed then, and then I ordered these and have been even more impressed!  These boxes are full of really nice quality products for men, and I love that there is a subscription company catering to the men in our lives and trying to make them dress better. When I ordered they were doing a promotion, which was the current box and a past box for $20.  I'm not sure if it is still active, but I used the code "BONUSBOX20" so you all can give it a shot!

The September box theme was "The Perry" with classic patterns, but heavier fabrics and darker colors for fall.

This box included: Bryt Dress Socks - $11.66FRESHeTech Earbuds - $29.95Peter Daniel Leather Bracelet - $10Sprezza Pocket Square - $18English Laundry Oxford Bleu Cologne - They said this small bottle was worth $20, but the full size 1.7 oz is …
