Nadine West: Second Shipment

This was my second shipment of Nadine West, which is a styling service which sends you clothing and accessories for about $10 a month (or every two weeks if you prefer).  You have about a week to a week and a half to try on the cloths and decide if you like them enough to keep them, and if you do the price you paid for shipping is subtracted from the total cost of the items you elect to keep!  What make it even better?  Everything is under $30!

Can you see the disdain on my face? I hate skulls and was really disappointed to see this print top in my bag.  It was also suuuuuper tight.  This might be some peoples style, but not mine.  And it seems so off the wall!  Everything else in my bags have been so bright and cheery, and this is so dark.  Regardless, this is the Ailsa top and it retails for $17.49.

This is called the Elena romper and it retails for $29.99. So, I kept saying in all of my reviews on Nadine West that I wanted rompers and I liked off the shoulder tops.  In theory they found me the perfect one because it is both!  But sadly, it is also the EXACT same print as the dress I kept from my last shipment.  I didn't really want two clothing items this similar, so I was forced to send this one back. (Oh, and sorry about the lighting!)

This is the Summer Mornings dress and it retails for $29.99.  I was so excited when I pulled this out of the bag, I loved the print!  But then I put it on... I get the whole baggy style that is in currently, and I can get behind it, but this was huge!  It came too low in the back to work, but not low enough to justify a bralette.  And do you see the way the armholes gape?  I wasn't too excited about that...

These are the Morning Dew Sparkle Drop Earrings and they retail for $9.99.  I think they look like coral and were kinda cute, so I kept them to justify what I paid for the shipping of this bag, but I wouldn't necessarily have bought them if I'd seen them in a store somewhere.

And I forgot to take a picture of this necklace close up, but you can see it in some of the outfit pictures above!  This is the Morning Dew Sparkle Necklace, which goes with the earrings, and it retails for $18.99.  I thought this was a really pretty necklace, and the price wasn't awful, but I just didn't really want to shell out extra money this month, so I sent it back.


If you can't tell, I was wasn't nearly as enthralled with this shipment as I was the last one.  Even the things that stood out to me, such as the romper and dress, fit weird or had something holding me back from keeping them.  Oh well, I figure I will keep it for a bit longer and see how it goes!

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.
