Present DIY: Mugcake

So I understand that this is staged fall instead of Christmas, but I made this and took the pictures before my anniversary in October! Sadly, very few people have holidays in October, so I decided to hold on to the pictures until Christmas when it could actually be useful!

Aaaaanyway, this is my version of an easy double chocolate mug cake!  This is an easy present you could make for someone in no time for under $5.  If you gave them this and a nice mug that would be an awesome present!

What you will need:
  • Angel Food Cake Mix
  • Devil's Food Cake Mix (Or any flavor really! This is up to you as long as you have the Angel Food in there)
  • Chocolate Chips (Optional)
  • Pretty Container 

From this point it's pretty easy!  Just mix a full box of angel food with a full box of devil's food, add as many chocolate chips as you want, and you are done!  Because this isn't a super dense cake, the chocolate chips will fall to the bottom giving it a chocolate lava cake kind of consistency; if you don't want that then leave them out!  

Now you need to package it!  I bought this plastic clear container at the Dollar Tree, it doesn't get much easier than that!  A mason jar would also be super cute.  After putting it in something you can decorate it as much or as little as you want.  I added a little bit of red sparkly washi tape, and a chalkboard label on the front with the name and on the back with the directions.

Now, about the directions.  To get the perfect consistency you have to mix it a certain way, and it doesn't get much more simple than this... 

3 Tbsp of Mix
2 Tbsp of Water
1 Minute in the Microwave

And that is it!  Super simple right? 


Now let's talk a minute, I am home for Christmas break for almost a month and a half!  So, hopefully during that time I am going to return to posting on both Saturday and Wednesday for fun!  Also, after Christmas I plan to FINALLY get up my Disney blogs for a little bit of summer fun in the winter!  Even though most of the writing is done, putting together something like that is a huge time commitment, and that is time I just don't have during the semester, so I thought during winter break would be the perfect time!  So in the the next month you can look forward to hauls, present ideas, maybe something birthday related, Disney, and of course more subscription boxes! 
Hope you all enjoy!

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…

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…
