    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…
