Influenster Chapstick VoxBox

This was a fun VoxBox to be a part of!  
Before these three new Chapstick flavors were released to stores, I got to give them a shot!

These Chapsticks are actually different from your everyday $1 chapstick beside the register at Walmart.  These are 100% natural lip butter "with naturally sourced ingredients, including Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, and Beeswax for healthier looking lips."  I was sent three flavors, Green Tea Mint, Sweet Papaya, Pink Grapefruit.


By far my favorite of the three flavors was Green Tea Mint.  I didn't really get much green tea flavor, but it had a nice minty tingle.  The Sweet Papaya was good, nice and fruity.  My least favorite was the Pink Grapefruit... But I'm not a huge fan of the fake grapefruit smell/flavor regardless.  You know those Grapefruit Bert's Bees makeup remover wipes?  The smell makes my stomach turn!
As for the actually quality of the Chapsticks, I'm honestly kind of torn...  I have very sensitive lips, and after beginning to use these my lips dried out even further, becoming tight and rough, and then they began to peel.  This isn't the first brand of lip products to cause this, but it is the first problem I've had in years.  I am a fan of the Chapstick brand in general and own many of the original flavors, and they haven't ever given me a problem before!  After my lips go back to normal I plan to give them another shot by themselves, so nothing else can interfere with the experiment!  It made me sad that this happened because I genuinely enjoyed the subtle flavors and smooth moisturizing feel they give.
Therefore, I suggest you try them.  They have wonderful reviews and I haven't heard any other odd cases which match up with mine, so consider me the exception instead of the rule.  I will try them out again, and hopefully report back to you with better news soon!

*Update*
I think my lips are just in a weird state of chapped and the mix of too many different chapsticks!  Therefore, please try these out for yourself because they have a wonderful feel to them!

Despite some difficulties, I was still thrilled to receive this box!  Thank you Influenster, and once again, if you'd like to be part of some their future campaigns you can sign up here: www.influenster.com/refferal 
Disclosure, I received this products for free from Influenster for testing purposes, but all opinions are my own.

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…

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…
