Walmart Beauty Box: Fall

I fully intended to get this up on Saturday, as per usual, especially considering finals are over and I am now I break (!!!), but when I went to start writing Friday night the internet was out!  I go to Appalachian State University, with the possibility of 18,000 students being on the internet at any given moment and it works fine... I come home to a house of four people and it immediately crashes.  But regardless, I wanted to try to get this post up anyway just for the fun of it!  (And because I am a bored college student with no job and nothing to do for the next month and a half so... hit me up!)

This is the fall edition of the Walmart Beauty Box, which is a $5 quarterly subscription. 
 These can kind of be hit or miss, but because they are only $20 spread out over a year and a nice little surprise when they show up, I keep it anyway.  This one was actually pretty decent!

This is a "travel size" tube of the Hello Whitening toothpaste.  I was just about to run out of toothpaste at school, and as I said before I am a broke college student, so this came at a perfect time!  It is just a standard mint flavor.

This is the Dove Nutrium Moisture body wash.  This seemed vaguely familiar to me, and I am almost certain I used to use this at my grandparents when I would shower at their house!  I added it to my drawer of mini sizes for traveling purposes, but it is nice to have.

I was so excited to receive this baby Batiste dry shampoo in the box, but also slightly confused... My Walmart doesn't carry Batiste, and it is my favorite!  They need to step up their game!  This is the original scent, and I have already been using it like crazy! This was my favorite thing out of the box by far.

This is the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for your entire body, not just face.  I didn't realize Cetaphil was doing body products, but I love their face products so I have high expectations!  Sadly this is a pretty itty bitty sample, so it will probably only do for one, maybe two, full body applications.

This is the Clean and Clear Deep Action "60 second shower mask" cleanser.  Nothing against Walmart Box, because this is a nice brand and size, but I have tried this before and am just not crazy about it... I used it for years when I was younger, so maybe it was hormones, maybe my skin just got too accustomed to it, I don't know, but I wasn't keen on the idea of trying it again.

This is a single use packet os the Village Naturals Therapy Aches+Pains Muscle Relief Mineral Bath Soak.  I don't equate this to the other foil packets many subscription boxes send because bath bombs are only single use, and people pay exorbitant amounts for those!  So isn't this basically the same thing?  I thought this was a fun edition to the box, and I'm super excited to try it now that I am home with my own bathtub!

These are Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin, and Nails Gummies, and these I do equate to a foil packet sample.  All I can tell you about these is that they tasted good; one serving of gummy vitamins is not nearly enough to find out if they actually do anything.  Nonetheless, it makes the box eclectic, so they were nice to get.

This is an Eco Tools Makeup Brush Cleansing Cloth, and let me tell you, it works!  I used it to spot clean the other day, and I was able to clean most of my brushes without them feeling overly wet.  These would be nice to have, especially for traveling.

I have tired the normal pore strips before, but never the BiorĂ© Charcoal pore strips.  These didn't seem much different than the regular pore strips, but I love them regardless!  Such a mix of disgust and amazement when I see what comes out of my pores...

Even though a few of the things weren't my style or were single use, I received nine items for $5, and you can't really beat that!  If you haven't ever tried Walmart Beauty Box before I highly reccomend giving it a shot!

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…
