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…

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…
