Nadine West: May

I signed up for a new subscription service!  I know... So surprising.
This one is Nadine West; it is a clothing subscription service, but unlike many other similar services it is only $9.98 per month!  The items in the package tend to run from around $10 to $30, but if you choose to keep anything then the price of shipping will be deducted from whatever you don't return!  It also comes with a prepaid shipping label and whatever you don't like you put back in the bag it came in, cover the old shipping label, and stick it in the mail!  Easy as that!

Sorry, I couldn't wait to open it to get a really good picture...  But isn't it wrapped super cute?
When you sign up you take a style quiz picking examples of clothes and jewelry you like and how often you would like to receive them, as well as your preference on colors and patterns.  Each month you should receive at least one clothing item, as well as two or three other accessories!

They nailed my taste in earrings!  These were so nice and dainty.  They felt maybe just a *little* bit cheap, meaning they were very light, but I did not put any real wear into them so I can't speak to how well they would hold up. I was very tempted to keep them, but there was another item in here that I liked just a bit more.  These were listed at $10.99, which the shipping would almost pay for itself!

This is the "Beauty Deeply Rooted" necklace.  This was probably my least favorite item in the shipment, but it still wasn't ugly by any means!  This necklace was listed at $21.99, which I feel is a bit high for something like this, but considering I decided not to keep it it doesn't really bother me!

Now this I did keep (and please excuse my lack of shoes...).  So, this was listed as a top on their website, but you all agree this is a dress right?  I even checked on their website at the shipment history to see if maybe I was sent the wrong thing, but it is listed as a top on there as well even though the model is wearing it as a dress!  So who knows, but I like it!

The back is my favorite part though...  You definitely have to wear a bralette with it, but I think that just made it even cuter!  This was listed at $20.49.  I really didn't need a new dress... But it was just so cute!  I can't wait to wear it at the beach! 

This is the final piece they sent me, a color block t-shirt dress.  Though I loved the fit of the dress, I just wasn't a big fan of the pattern.  I really wanted to like it too, especially since it was only $12.99!  Oh well, I rated it pretty high and specified in my feedback that I liked the style but not the pattern, so maybe I'll get another one like it in the future.

Quick break for puppy cuddles!!

Overall I really liked this subscription service, so I decided to keep it for a bit longer.  We will see how the next few go!  If you would like to try it out you can enter the code "Nadine" on their website to get free shipping on your first box!

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.
