U by Kotex Box

This is a slightly different post than I normally put up, but hey!  It is sort of a subscription box (which I am addicted to) so why not?  These are free boxes of pad and tampon samples that U by Kotex is currently offering, which I will link at the bottom of this post.  They have a rule about one per household like most samples do, so I cheated had one sent to my home and one to my PO Box (which you are welcome to send things to! It is Bethany Allen, ASU Box 09665, Boone, NC 28608)

In case you are wondering, it comes in a box like this sealed, so it isn't too terribly discreet, but it also doesn't scream "I'M ON MY PERIOD" either.

The first box is the U By Kotex Ultra Thin Pads - Regular.  It came with 1 CleanWear Regular pad with wings, 1 Security Regular pad with wings, 1 U by Kotex AllNighter pad with wings, 1 Security Overnight pad with wings, and 2 U by Kotex Barely There liners.  I tend to use pads more often than tampons honestly, and a box like this could get me through a few days of a period!

With this box they were also offering a little present to make you feel better while you are on your period!

These were the options to choose from, and I had no idea what they were going to send, so for this box I just chose "All of the Above," which I think gave me a random option from the other three  So as you can see in the previous picture, they sent me four little mini posters with sweet/funny things on them that would probably fit in the "Tell Me I'm Pretty While I Feel All My Feelings" category!

This was the second box I received, and it was the U by Kotex Click Tampons box.  It came with 2 Click Regular tampons, 2 Click Super tampons, and 2 U by Kotex Barely There liners.  I rarely use tampons, but pretty much my entire supply has been stocked by free samples from Kotex and other brands.  I like these Click tampons because they are so small, but then the applicator expands to full size when you are ready to use them.

For my little gift with this box I obviously chose "An Endless Supply of Snacks" category.  They sent me four little recipe cards with cute snacks!  I like this present better than the last one.

Finally, both boxes came with a dollar off coupon!

I think this is a really cool promotional program that U by Kotex is doing!  There were also two other options to choose from, a Full Sized tampon box, and a Heavy Flow Long pad box, so I chose my favorites from the two categories.  If you would like to check this out you can find it on the U by Kotex website, I highly reccomend it!

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.
