Dirty Myrtle 2017: Day 1

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 😅

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!

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!


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!

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

Buuuuuut.... Not without Muddy Buddies!

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!

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!


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!

SprezzaBox: September + Bonus Box!

You all may remember that I ordered a Sprezza box last year around this time of the year as a present for my boy.  If you want to see that box you can find it here!  I was amazed then, and then I ordered these and have been even more impressed!  These boxes are full of really nice quality products for men, and I love that there is a subscription company catering to the men in our lives and trying to make them dress better. When I ordered they were doing a promotion, which was the current box and a past box for $20.  I'm not sure if it is still active, but I used the code "BONUSBOX20" so you all can give it a shot!

The September box theme was "The Perry" with classic patterns, but heavier fabrics and darker colors for fall.

This box included: Bryt Dress Socks - $11.66FRESHeTech Earbuds - $29.95Peter Daniel Leather Bracelet - $10Sprezza Pocket Square - $18English Laundry Oxford Bleu Cologne - They said this small bottle was worth $20, but the full size 1.7 oz is …

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, 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…
