Popsugar: February

The February box is my last one from the three month subscription I received for Christmas, and though that is very sad, we went out with a bang!  I loved every single item in this box, which is an amazing feeling, and I have been so excited about using them all!
First of all, can we notice how much cuter than normal this is?  Look at all of the crinkly stuff!

This candy bar from Chuao Chocolatier is literally heaven in your mouth... It says it is a Cinnamon Cereal Smooch Chocolate Bar, so, Cinnamon Toast Crunch?  My favorite cereal??  I approve.  The retail on this says $6, but I saw this brand at Biltmore going for around $8, which seems a bit steep for chocolate to me... But I guess we are talking about fancy chocolate here!

This is the Tribe Alive Foldover Clutch in the pattern Atitl├ín Brocade.  It is reversible, so if you fold it the opposite direction you basically have a brand new clutch, and it is gorgeous either way.  It is hand woven, and the Tribe Alive brand partners with artisans around the world who hire impoverished women at fair-trade wages to give them access to safer jobs.  I love products like this that have a cool story behind them, and putting it in this box was a great idea to get their name out.  Good job Tribe Alive!!  This retails at $98 on their website.

This is the Juara Skincare Candlenut Body Creme.  If you will remember, a Juara face mask was my present in the December box for joining, so apparently this brand has a very good relationship with Popsugar.  I wasn't disappointed by the face mask, and this lotion is just as great!  It has a very subtle almost coconut-y smell and even though it is thick it soaks into your skin in the best way.  This retails for $35 on their website, but can be find a little cheaper other places online (Jet.com, Amazon... around $27).

This is probably the item I was least excited about in my box, but if I could figure out how to wear fake eyelashes I would be all about these Battington Monroe 3D Silk Lashes.  I mean, look at the packaging for these, they are gorgeous, and the eyelashes are so soft.  Since these are silk you can reuse them up to 25 times, which I think is really cool.  These retail for $28 on their website.  Can somebody teach me how to do this so I can wear them without looking like a crazy person?



I am obsessed with this dainty little necklace!  It is by Kris Nations Jewelry and is the Love Script Necklace.  It has an 18K Gold overlay, and I think it lives up to the "Pretty Little Things" name on the back.  Also, can we just take a moment for the cute little vial?  I mean, come on.  It is all adorable.  This beautiful little necklace retails for $48 on their website.

Finally, the special extra this month was the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in the shade "Love is On."  You all know how I love my lipstick, and my favorite red is actually by Revlon as well!  So I know they are good.  This says it retails for $7.99 on the website, but you can get it a bit cheaper at Walmart or Target.

This box had a value of about $223, and as I have said before, even though I wouldn't pay that for most everything in here, I still love it and seeing the number makes me happy.  To be honest, the only product I didn't absolutely love was the lashes, but I still brought them back to school with me to see if there is some way I can make them work!  I was looking for another Valentine's or President's Day sale to order another few boxes, but they didn't really have one...  At first I was sad, but I decided to order the Special Edition Girls Night Out box instead (which you will see soon).  After receiving that box and then seeing spoilers of what is in the March Popsugar box, I think I made the right choice, I like mine way better!!  But I guess you all can decide for yourselves when I post 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.
