Mail Time: TheECPlannerKitLady Sticker Haul

So apparently Halloween was mail day for me!  I checked my mailbox that morning after class and found a few fun things, and then later I got a notification that a package had been delivered, so why not check again?  I found my package and another letter!  It hadn't been such a great weekend, so finding all of the fun things waiting for me on Monday perked me right up!

I got three cards, one from my mom, my mom's coworker, and my grandmother!  I thought it was fun that all three had puppies.

My mother also sent me a huge box of Halloween goodies!  Candy, tattoos, donuts, fake bugs, all kinds of fun stuff!

But now on to the true meat of this post, I recently placed two orders with TheECPlannerKitLady on Etsy!  I know two is a bit excessive, but first she had a sale, and then she offered a discounted grab bag, both just for members of her Facebook group!  Planner stickers can be very expensive, so I jump at opportunities to get things for a better price!  You also may remember early this year I did a large sticker haul, and I'd finally began to run a bit low on those, so I figured it was time!

First Order
These were the things I chose specifically for myself on the sale day, and everything totaled out to about $7.
This is a bit messy, because I cut up the cards to organize the washi tape before I took the picture, but you still get the idea!  She was offering 30 washi tape samples, wrapped around playing cards, for only around $5!  I like some more than others, but it is a fun thing to have!

I also used these before I thought to take a picture... but they are countdown to Christmas stickers!  It came as a set of 24 countdown days, as well as a few activity stickers such as "wrap presents" or "bake Christmas cookies"!  they were only around $1 or $2.  Such a fun thing, I love them!

Second Order
These were the items that came in the grab bag I ordered for $15; it is a random mix of punches, kits, washi tape, and stickers!
This was one of her small Christmas kits with washi and punches.  The punches have a piece of tape on the back to adhere them to the pages.  I usually use them for special events that I want to stand out in my planner.

Similarly to the Christmas kit above, this is her fall kit with punches and washi!  I loved the leaf shapes and designs, and I have already dipped into both of these!

These were the stickers which came with both kits respectively.  They are pre-made, not by the shop owner, and more for decorative than functional use.


This is another fall kit she sent me, but these were all stickers! I love stickers... This kit came with a countdown to Thanksgiving sheet, decorative banners, and "To do" list boxes. 

I thought it was so much fun that I ended up with both the Christmas and Thanksgiving countdown!  They are super cute, I couldn't wait to get them in my planner.

Next, I received TWENTY bobbins with washi tape samples!  Twenty!  There were only a couple of repeats from the washi tape in my first order, but I do kind of wish I hadn't ordered that and just waited for these!  Oh well, I need not complain, I am now well stocked on washi tape!

These two are not a kit that go together, just two more random things in the grab bag!  The card with the nautical themed washi tape actually came in my first order as well, so I ave plenty of that style!
I also received this bag of tiny tiny flower punches... I'm not totally sure what to do with them yet since they are too small to write on, but they are pretty!

The last things in my grab bag was a pretty sparkly gold pen, and a circle clip.  I was a bit disappointed that the ink in the pen was black instead of gold, but it writes smoothly, so I know it will quickly become one of my favorites anyway! 
Honestly, I'm not totally sure what to do with the circle clip, or how it relates to planner accessories...  So I'm open to suggestions!

And here is her card!  TheECPlannerKitLady has a wonderful shop that I've ordered from for years, she introduced me into the world of planner stickers.  I highly suggest you check her out, and if you use the code "Just4U" you can get 15% off of your order!  I used it with both of these, and ended up paying just under $20 for it all!  Personally, I think that is pretty great.

By the way, I went to get my mail a couple of days later and found this fun box that I can't wait to share with you all!  Apparently it is just mail week!

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.
