Popsugar: January

Though this box wasn't as good as December in my opinion, I am still loving this!  These are so much fun!!  I would like to apologize for my photography skills this time though... I was trying to hurry and shoot these before I left to come back to school a few weeks ago and I let quality slip.  I'll do my best not to let it happen again!

The theme words for January were new, fresh, detox, motivation, healthy, and revitalize.  That seems pretty standard for January, everyone is making an attempt at getting healthier for their new years resolutions!

This is the Daily Concepts Hair Wrap towel.  I'd seen these before at every grocery and beauty store while they were super popular, but I'd never really bought into it.  They are supposed to cut drying time and reduce frizz, so I guess we can give this a shot!  Though from first glance taking it out of its case, I'm not totally sure how to use it...  Anyway, this retails for $18 on the Daily Concepts website.

This Peppermint Tea by Dean & Deluca is just straight dried peppermint leaves!  I figured there would be other additives or things to make the flavor more complex, but no, just peppermint leaves!  It has a nice flavor, and isn't nearly as strong as I expected, which I appreciate.  This tin is filled to the brim and retails for $10.75 on their website.

This calendar by May Designs is honestly the cutest little thing!  I have it sitting on my desk now, and I love it.  It makes it even cuter that after you are done with the month you can trim off the calendar part and the back is a sweet little postcard!  Apparently it is even hand painted designs!  This retails for $25 on the May Designs website

So I'd like a little guidance here... This is a yoga towel by eQua, but what exactly are you supposed to do with them?  I tried to read up on it a little bit, and it is supposed to be quick drying and slip resistant, and used either as a yoga mat cover or in place of the mat altogether.  But I feel like it would slide around and bunch up!  I don't know, somebody please educate me!  Regardless, this retails for $38 at manduka.com.

Now though these seem a bit pointless, sticky notes are something I can get behind!  Sticky notes are totally my thing, I love them, and these already have cute little prewritten notes on them for you to leave around for people!  These are Instant Happy Notes by Sourcebooks, Inc, and you can get them for $8.99 on their website.

This is the Goldfaden MD Fresh A Peel.  It is a multi acid resurfacing peel which removes dead skin cells and rejuvenates skin!  The information card stated that this retails for $85.... and it is 1.7 oz.  I thought they must have meant the full size was that much and this was a sample, but nope!  So this was a pretty awesome thing to get considering I'd never actually pay that much for a product like this!

Guys, this Glade candle in Coconut and Beach Woods smells AMAZING!  It smells like summertime and the beach and sunscreen... All good things!  This was considered a "Special Extra" in the box and retails for $4.99 on their website.  I honestly can't wait for summer to start burning this!

This box also came with a 15% off Dean and Deluca coupon, which was the brand of tea.

Total, this box retailed for about $190!  I really loved three of these things, was happy with two, and kind of unsure about two.  Those aren't as good odds as the December box, but for the $20 deal I got I would do it again in a heartbeat!  This is such a fun subscription!

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.
