Disney 2016: Day 3

11:15 a.m.
Good morning lovelies, it's Disney Day!!

I have had a countdown going on my phone for almost a year now, so seeing that 0 was the greatest thing ever!

I got up about 8 this morning and went for a walk on the beach before it was time to go, and you will never believe what I found...

A baby sea turtle! I was running/walking at the edge of the water and just happened to notice it.  I know you aren't supposed to touch them, but it looked dead so I went ahead, and it moved!  I think it must have washed up and couldn't get back, so I just wanted to help...

I put it back in the water and it swam a little, so I hope it made it...  Seeing a live baby sea turtle not in an aquarium is a total dream of mine, and the fact that I got to pick it up and feel it's little heartbeat amazes me!

After that we got ready and went down for breakfast, packed up our things, and are now on our way to Disney!

Today I am wearing my favorite romper from Forever 21, my FitBit, and my magic band and ears since I can finally do that without people thinking I'm weird!

12:10 p.m.
We just got out of Walmart (there has never been a quick trip to Walmart...) and now we are on our way to the Disney Outlet before we go in to Disney!

3:30 p.m.
Well that was an ordeal and a half but it was definitely worth it! The outlet mall where the Character Warehouse is was a madhouse! But I got a couple of cute things, and a few presents, for significantly cheaper than they would have been in the parks, so I'd say that it was a success!

5:15 p.m.
We are here! We are staying at Allstar Music resort, and of the ones we've been to it definitely is not my favorite... But we are at Disney so it doesn't matter!


Tonight we are going to dinner at Captain Cooks at the Polynesian resort, and then watching the fireworks!
I had Nachos on homemade chips and they were really really good... I'd heard Captain Cooks was good, but I was impressed!

9:45 p.m.
We finished dinner a couple hours ago and since then we've been resort hopping between the Polynesian and the Grand Floridian.

Resort hopping is always a lot of fun because we get to enjoy a lot of the amenities of the deluxe resorts without paying the exorbitant prices!  Things like the live music at the Grand Floridian.

And the floor... I love the pretty designs on the floor.

They also have their own Basin, similar to the one in Disney Springs, but this is Basin White with cleaner scents and a few different products.

This is a view of the Grand Floridian after dark, it truly is a gorgeous resort.

We also spent some time at the Polynesian, my dream resort, before the fireworks and did some pictures at sunset!

I thought the sunset in this picture was gorgeous... These deck chairs are also where we watched the fireworks from with our Dole Whips!  They pipe in the music and you can just relax without any crowds and enjoy the fireworks. 
Afterwards we headed back to our resort to get ready for our first day in 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 days!  If you missed yesterday you can see Days 1 and 2 here, or 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 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…
