Pigeon Forge Girls Weekend!

Day 1, Sunday

7:20 p.m.
Surprise, I'm in Pigeon Forge for a mini vacation! 

My best friend in the entire world, Kaitlyn, and I left after church this morning. We wanted to spend a few nights together before college begins, and we live hours and hours apart... We just arrived at our cabin, and we thought since it was in a gated community it would be pretty close together and accessible... No. We are in the middle of nowhere up an itty bitty winding road, but it's really pretty inside and out!

Heads up, I got lazy and did not actually take these pictures, I stole them from the cabin's website... 

This was our bedroom, it was supposed to be a honeymoon cabin, but it worked for us!

Loft/Game Room with it's own private balcony 

The downstairs with the kitchen, dining room table, and living room!  The hall beside the kitchen led to our bedroom, the laundry room, and bathroom.

See the hot tub?  We spent a LOT of time in that

Also, the view from our hot tub, minus the snow, because it was 90+ degrees the whole week

And our front porch which we spent very little time on... But it was pretty!
After finding and looking around the cabin we cooked ourselves dinner.  We bought a frozen pizza, and I'm so glad we did so we didn't have to try and find our way back out!

After dinner we hopped in the hot tub to watch some Netflix (which we ended up doing every single night...) 

I mean, come on, look at that sunset over the mountains!  It was gorgeous.

10:40 p.m.
After dinner and hanging out in the hot tub, we showered, and watched more Netflix! We decided tomorrow to get out pretty early and have breakfast before going to the Titanic museum and then the pool! Goodnight girls!

Day 2, Monday

8:40 a.m.
Good morning girls! I have gotten so used to waking up early and going in to work at 6 a.m. that I was up at 7:45 this morning... But that's ok because we needed to leave early this morning anyway! We have to leave our cabin around 9:30 to make sure we make our 10:30 time at PAULA DEEN'S restaurant for breakfast! I'm just a little excited, because it is pretty amazing. After that we are planning on going to the Titanic museum, and maybe the pool later!

Just finished at Paula Deen's... We are SO stuffed.

Before the meal they give you a cinnamon roll, and it actually might be my favorite thing!

We ordered (from bottom left going clockwise) bananas foster french toast, huge pigs in a blanket, chicken and waffles, biscuits and gravy, brown sugar black pepper bacon

Aft breakfast we headed over to the Titanic museum, which was truly amazing...

As you walk in the door they give you an audio tour and a card with a person's name on it.  As you travel throughout the museum and explore the artifacts you are tasked with finding your person and trying to discover if they lived or died.
I lived!

They also had the violin which was played as the Titanic sank.  It was recently bought at auction and was on loan to the Titanic museum.  It was only out for a short time, and this is the only museum with the rights to it.  Following it's time on display it will return to a vault, never to be released again.

After the museum we went back to our cabin to chill in the hot tub and watch movies for the night, and we made dinner!
I made salad, with chipotle cheddar pasta and garlic citrus chicken! 

Days 3 and 4

So, I kind of slacked off the last two days with taking pictures and recording what we were actually doing...  On Tuesday we went to Gatlinburg and shopped around for a little bit, and then spent the night in as we had the rest of the week, nothing too exciting.  On Wednesday we shopped (TOO MUCH) and then began to make our way home. 

Overall it was an amazing weekend, and I am so glad we got to spend it together before heading off to college!

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.
