Dirty Myrtle 2017: Day 1


7:05 
Good morning ladies, it's beach day!! 


I have been up about an hour now finishing up some last minute things, and I was up until after 1 last night doing the same… it's been hectic, and I'm wiped, but ready to get on the road! 


Kaitlyn should be here in about an hour, and before then I've got to finish packing, get ready, and pack my car! I better get to it 😅

8:15
Beach bound! 

I was actually able to accomplish pretty much everything I needed to this morning and was ready when Kaitlyn got here, that never happens!

9:30
We already made a stop at Denny's for breakfast, and we are barely an hour away from home… This might be a long trip 😂 

We decided to split salted caramel banana shortbread pancakes and an omelet… It was so good, but it was just too much, we barely even finished half!

11:00

We finished breakfast, drove a little further down the road, and then switched drivers because she is better in traffic and more used to this road than me. Our current "estimated arrival time" is about 3:00. Our condo is cleaned and ready, so whenever we get there we can go ahead and check in! After that we will get groceries, and then who knows how the rest of the day will go!

12:45
Stopped at a rest area to stretch our legs… Now back on the road!


Buuuuuut.... Not without Muddy Buddies!

5:15
We made it!! 

We got to our condo about 3:15 and since then we have just been hanging out and enjoying our view. We both had to call parents and grandparents to let them know we were here safe, and then we honestly just needed a minute to relax after such a long day of driving! Now we are about to go grocery shopping, and then we are going to have Chinese food delivered!

9:20
Chillin in tha pool 😎 

After grocery shopping we ate dinner and watched a movie. We are apparently into splitting things this weekend, and with the other restaurants we have picked out I foresee that trend continuing! 


We split a hibachi chicken and steak with rice, and then added another side of rice and an order of spring rolls! 


Afterwards we went down for a walk on the beach and then came to swim in the pool!

10:00

And that, my friends, draws the first day to a close! It has been long and tiring, but totally worth it to finally be at the beach!

Nadine West: Fourth Shipment

So this wasn't the most successful shipment ever, but I still got one nice piece out of it!  And they left me a sweet surprise which I'll tell you about at the end, so I wasn't upset at all!
This is actually two items from my shipment!  This outfit contains both the shirt and leggings from this month, and they kind of go together!  
Though I really liked the pattern of the leggings, they are much more like tights.  They were totally see through, which made me pretty sad.  If they were marketed as tights then I wouldn't be too disappointed, but these were called Leggings.  They retailed for $14.49, and I didn't keep them.
The shirt fit very well and was extremely comfy.  I have been looking for a shirt this color, so I was pretty excited to see it in my bag, even though it is pretty basic.  This shirt also retailed for $14.49, and I did elect to keep it!
These are the "Beauty Within" earrings, and I'm actually pretty sure I received the matching neckl…

Date Box: October

So you may or may not remember, about two Christmases ago I ordered a Date Box!  It had hot chocolate and mugs, with a gingerbread house kit (you can find the full review here).  My boyfriend as I had the most fun with it, and the mugs were gorgeous, so on a whim this October I decided to give it another try!
As stated in the last post, it is about $40 a month, which is a bit steep in my opinion, but if you really need some new date night ideas, then this would be a fun and creative way to get them.  If you search, you can find a discount code bringing the price of your first box down to $5.  I'm not going to post the code because it isn't mine to give out, but they are easy to come by!  They also offer a digital option now, which is $8 a month.  If you scroll down to the bottom of their about page there is a bar where you enter your email and they send you your first digital date for free, which seems to be a cooking class for two!
The experience is significantly more person…

Three Ways to Christmas Shop on the Cheap

Christmas shopping is something a lot of us tend to put off until the last second, and then are scrambling the week before Christmas to buy things just because you feel like you have to.  You end up buying something, at exorbitant obnoxious prices, that you know the person you are buying for won’t even like!


I came up with a few ways you can get awesome presents, not have to kill yourself trying to get them at the last minute, and not break the bank...
My first suggestion, is to shop in advance! I know, this seems super simple, but you wouldn't believe the difference it makes to start a couple months in advance, and just buy things you know the person would like as you see them.  This year, I stopped in an antique shop on my way to work one day, just to look around.  I ended up leaving with this gorgeous bowl, mug, and tea set with I am planning to give to family members, and because the place was about to close down, I got them for half off the original price!That leads me right in…
