Dorm Life VoxBox

I got another VoxBox from Influenster!  This is a company that sends complementary products to a group of people in exchange for reviews and posts about them.  So this is sponsored in a way, but all opinions are 100% true and my own!  If you want to see allllll of my sponsored posts then check out my Instagram, because they are coming!  I am @bethanyallen15.

This is called the #DormLife VoxBox and it is themed around all the different kinds of things a college girl might want or need!

Look at all of the stuff in this box!  It is packed to the brim, and with a large variety of things, so let's get into it.

This is the Not Your Mother's Naturals Tapioca and Rice Dry Shampoo.  I loooove dry shampoo and use it on the daily, but personally, I am very loyal to Batiste brand.  I have tried a couple others and not really been impressed, but Not Your Mother's is usually a very nice brand, so I was super excited to give this a shot.  This retails for about $9.

This is the Alba Botanica AcneDote Face and Body Scrub.  It has a very nice lather, which I find to be lacking in a lot of facial scrubs.  Though the particles are smaller than a scrub like the St. Ives Apricot, it is still quite abrasive.  This might be a bit rough for regular use on the face, but I feel as if can really get in there on the body!  This has Salicylic Acid in it, which isn't always my favorite since I try to stick to natural treatments like tea tree oil, but if you like this ingredient then it will be great.  It retails for about $6-$7.

TMI Alert
These are the Tampax Pocket Pearl Regular size tampons.  These reminded me of the U-by-Kotex Click tampons.  They work the same way, where they are only the size of the tampon in the wrapper, and then once you open them you pull the handle of the applicator out until it clicks into place.  I actually really liked these!  I am not the biggest fan of tampons because I think they are uncomfortable, but these actually weren't!  Though they did leak a bit initially.  Overall though, I would buy these again, and it came with a coupon!  A box of 34 of these is about $7, but this only came with 3 so I don't have a price for that.

These are the Sour Punch Mini Bites in Assorted and Ragin' Reds.  These come in like an Oreo package where the top peels back and is resealable.  I am not the biggest fan of these already, but that is just a personal preference.  I gave the assorted ones to my roommate and kept the reds, because red is always best.  I looked, and I couldn't really find a set price for these.

This is the Balance Cookie Dough protein bar.  It had 15 grams of protein and 23 vitamins and minerals.  I love the idea of something that's a bit healthier tasting like a dessert, but I'm just not sure I believe that... Protein bars tend to always have a mealy texture that I'm not a fan of, but I'm totally willing to give this one a shot!  A box of six bars retails for about $5, which isn't too bad.

Finally, I received a color from the new Sinful Colors line called Punk Yourself.  The blue is actually a top coat, and it is in the color Rebel Rebel.  It also came with the color Snow Me White to use as a base.  So the thought is, you are supposed to paint a thin coat of the blue topcoat while the base is still wet.  In theory, the blue is supposed to bubble and pull together giving it a tie dyed look, but sadly, it looked more like I'd colored on my nails with a marker.  I'm going to give it another shot because I like the concept, but this just wasn't the best.  I usually love the Sinful Colors brand because they are good quality for a good price, so I'm not hating on the brand! This just wasn't my favorite polish line they've ever released.  If you do want to try it out they are only about $2 each, so you wouldn't be out much!

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…

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…

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…
