Disney 2016: Beach Days 1 and 2

Day 1

3:40 a.m.

We are currently headed to Daytona beach for two nights before the Disney vacation part begins, and then we will be in Disney from the 31st to the 11th of August!

I set not one but two alarms to get up this morning so we could leave by 3, and still did not get up until late... They didn't even phase me with two hours of sleep!

The plan to day is basically just driving aaaaaaall day... But it's all worth it for Disney!

6:35 a.m.
We just stopped at a rest stop somewhere in South Carolina! Now we are back on the road and headed to a Cracker Barrel on the other side of Colombia, South Carolina. It is a tradition that we always stop and have breakfast there on the way to vacation, and we aren't breaking it now!

We got to see the prettiest sunrise while we were stopped!

9:00 a.m.
Cracker Barrel time!

2:25 p.m.
It's been a while since I last checked in, but truthfully not much has happened… We stopped at a gross rest stop in Georgia, and then drove a few more hours. Around 1 we stopped at the official Florida visitors center, which is always fun to do! 

I picked up a few more Disney brochures that I didn't need, and baby cups of orange juice!

Now we are back to driving...

3:45 p.m.
12 hours later, we are here!

Dad wouldn't really tell us where we were staying, and it turned out he had gotten us a really nice resort in Daytona!

Here is the bedroom...

And the kitchen...

And the gorgeous view from our Balcony!!

7:45 p.m.
Since getting here we have unpacked, been to the beach, showered, and now we are on our way to eat.

We decided to come on in from the beach because this big storm was rolling in... Kind of scary, but also gorgeous.

9:45 p.m.
We ate at I-Hop...  But it's ok! Because here we are, 18 hours later, about to go to bed on the first night of our two week vacation!

Day 2

Good morning! We have been up for about two hours now and are just about ready to go to the beach! We woke up late and had a leisurely morning getting ready and having Breakfast at our resort, now we are headed down to the beach!

3:00 p.m.
This has been the most chill day... We went to the pool around 12:30 and then up to our room for lunch about 1:00. After lunch we've just been sitting on the beach and playing in the ocean!

Mom went into the Happy Hour at our hotel and asked for two "pink virgin fruity fizzy things."  I was pretty happy about it!

I love my floppy hat <3

Have to read up on Disney before we get there!  The water kept coming up higher and higher to my chair and towels!

7:45 p.m.
We came in from the beach about 6:30 and since then have been getting ready to go out and eat!

9:15 p.m.
We picked Crabby Joe’s in Daytona! I had clam strips with mashed potatoes, which is pretty much the only seafood I eat, and it was pretty great!

11:15 p.m.

We are back at the hotel and just chilling before bed. I know today was pretty boring and uneventful, but tomorrow we are off to Disney!

Thank you all so much for reading! I thought it would be fun to have a little summer Disney sun to brighten up snowy winter day!  If you miss any of the coming days you can go to the Disney 2016 tag to see the full series!

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.
