Influenster Dorm Life Voxbox

Last week I received my first Voxbox from Influenster! If you guys don’t know what Influenster is, it is basically a website where you fill out surveys and give reviews. Every once in a while you will get an email that will ask you to take a survey to see if you are qualified for the next Voxbox!

My box took about 2 weeks to get to me. I think this is because I go to school in the middle of nowhere.

Here are all of the FREE goodies I received from Influenster! I actually got two different packages of Sour Punch Mini Bites BUT I ate the other package before taking this picture (oops).

One of the items I received were these tampons. Not much to say about these because, well, they’re tampons and they get the job done. But, this is the brand I ALWAYS use.

Next up is this acne body & face scrub. I have crazy skin. Sometimes my skin is oily and then its dry. Honestly, I cant remember when my face wasn’t broken out. This scrub leaves my skin feeling so nice. I’ve only used it twice so far so I don’t know if this stuff actually works.

I was really excited when I saw I got nail polish! I honestly paint my nails a different color every other day. Only because I pick it off but, I still love to paint my nails. The pink is in the color 24/7 and the purple is in the color PURPUNK. The purple color is an overcoat & it gives your nail a shattered effect.

OKAY now, this dry shampoo is SO SO SO good! It’s been super humid where I am at for the past week & this stuff has been amazing. The only bad thing about this product is that it is white. So you really have to be careful about how much you put in your hair!

Another thing that was in my box was this protein bar. I normally don’t eat them because they’re normally super chewy and gross But, this Balance bar in the flavor cookie dough wasn’t too bad.

Lastly, I recieved this yummy pack of Sour Punch Mini Bites. I actually got two different packs but, I ate the other ones. I shouldn’t be eating these at all because I have braces BUT I couldn’t resist!

That is what I received in my Dorm Life Voxbox. Thank you so much Influenster!! I can’t wait to see what I get in my next box!

Be on the lookout for my September monthly update!

As a junior in college, I now live in a one bedroom apartment! I have actually lived here since last semester. My apartment is still considered on campus even though it isn’t actually “on campus”. This just means I can’t paint or have an animal (which sucks).

My apartment did come fully furnished! I did buy a couple of pieces though just to make it more like home and for storage reasons. Ya girl has A LOT of stuff.

I am still in the process of decorating and changing the vibe of my space. But here is what it looks like now!

Outside of my door, I put this cute little mat! The first night back at school someone moved it but hopefully, no one messes with it anymore.

This doormat will add character to any door! Especially in a boring college hallway.

I’m currently trying to find an inexpensive cow hide rug. I am also trying to make my living space match my tapestries and cow skull! Slowly but surely my space will come together. But for now, I am very happy with it!

” You Gotta Nourish To Flourish”

As August comes to an end I am feeling both sad and happy. August marks the end of the summer but is the start of my junior year in college. This summer was magical for me and was the best summer I have ever had.

Throughout the summer I spent most of my time at my internship. When you think of an internship you think of working in a large office and doing tons of paperwork. My internship was the complete opposite! My internship with Live Nation was extremely rewarding and fun at the same time.

This summer I was able to attend 19 concerts! These concerts were:

  • Chris Stapleton
  • Train
  • Chance the Rapper
  • Florida Georgia Line
  • One Republic
  • Kings Of Leon
  • Lady A
  • Chicago
  • R Kelly
  • Sam Hunt
  • Foreigner
  • Boston
  • Warped Tour
  • Nickelback
  • Shaggfest

& TONS more

My favorite concerts would have to be Chris Stapleton, Kings Of Leon, and seeing Nelly. But, production wise, One Republic was by far my favorite!

This internship allowed me to meet professionals in my field, meet the acts, and learn SO much. I was able to meet people who worked with the radio stations & interact with individuals who were extremely passionate about what they did.

When I wasn’t at my internship I was able to spend time with my boyfriend and my family.  I went to some baseball games, kayaked, and spent time at the beach.

August 21st marked my 20th birthday. I have lived such a fulfilling life these past 20 years. My birthday isn’t considered a large day for me, but I am thankful for the people who made it special for me. Also, the solar eclipse took place on my birthday so that’s pretty cool!

Monthly Update: May & June

Life has been moving extremely fast for me lately. I have been so busy with my personal life and career that I haven’t had time to actually sit down and get my thoughts together. Let me catch you up with what has been going on.

I officially started my internship

Some of you already know about my internship. But, for those of you that don’t know, I am a marketing intern for Live Nation. As soon as I came home from my sophomore year of college I started my internship TWO days later. Crazy, I KNOW. I was just SO excited about this opportunity so naturally, I had to start ASAP.

I’m not going to go into much detail about what I do but I will tell you the perks!

  1. There are dogs in the office
  2. Free dinner every concert night
  3. Free concerts ALL SUMMER

My daily commute

There is only one negative to my internship and that is actually getting there and waking up. Due to the fact that it is an hour away from my house. I have to wake up 2 hours in advance. Traffic is always awful getting there and coming home. I waste about 4 hours of my day driving their and back.

Workin’ on my fitness

If I’m not sleeping or at my internship, there is a 99.9% chance I’m at the gym.I’ve  become a little obsessed with it but, that’s because I’m actually seeing results! I have lost about 25 pounds and have dropped 3 pant sizes. But, I am no fitness guru nor am I buff.

A loved one became ill

My grandmother needed to have open heart surgery and a pacemaker put in. This was extremely hard for me due to the fact that my grandmother is my best friend. Growing up, I didn’t have many friends. When I wanted to go shopping with someone, eat lunch, gossip, or watch The Kardashians I ALWAYS called my grandmother (Grammy). She was basically a second mother to me. Thankfully, I have a great family unit and we were all there to support one another. Now, my grandmother is on the road to recovery and is doing so well!

Hopefully, the month of July isn’t as stressful as these past 2 months!

“Old ways won’t open new doors”

I’m sorry I’ve been MIA again! This month has been extremely busy for me school wise. So what that means is me trying to get my shit together.

Since my sophomore year is coming to an end I thought I would reflect a little on how this year went!

I started this year extremely excited and open minded. I was going to be living in a new apartment with 3 other girls and I could not wait! Here is a list of juicy and exciting things that have happened!

1.The apartment of 4 turned into an apartment of 2. I don’t want to go into much detail but, let’s just say this situation was MESSY.

2. Since this issue happened I was out of school for 3 weeks. This made my first semester extremely difficult.

3. Halloween came around and that was fun. Here is a photo of my costumes. Yes, that is plural.IMG_1917IMG_1899

4. Two weeks before the end of my first semester I made the decisions to move to a one bedroom apartment.This was by far the best decision I have made in a while.

5. Because of this decision, I had to pack ALL of my stuff up AGAIN and take it home just to move it back a third time. So yes, I had to move 3 times.

6. I killed all of my exams and went out with a close friend of mine to celebrate (those are virgin drinks btw).Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

7. Christmas break was fun and all but I was ready to move into my NEW space!! Here are some photos of my new crib.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb1 presetIMG_3026IMG_3028

8. Second semester classes were great except for one. But no worries I already gave that teacher a bad review.

9. I received an internship position through Live Nation for marketing and Social Media.

10. I was able to help with Spring Weekend. We had bands such as Small Pools, The Ying Yang Twins, and Bowling For Soup.

IMG_0135.JPG

10.  Greek Week happened and well, that was a mess. But a fun mess.

IMG_0133.JPG

As you can tell my life isn’t too exciting. This semester I learned a lot about myself. I lost some close friends along the way but, I have also gained new ones. Nothing is wrong with out growing people. With that being I said I wish them nothing but the best.

Now, with summer a week away I can’t wait to share my experiences with you and to actually start blogging more!

“Inhale confidence, exhale doubt”

First, I want to apologize for the fact that I have been MIA. March has been one hell of a month that has been filled with so many exciting and stressful things. Let me break it down for you.

  • I had to create a big girl resume and cover letter
  • I had to actually apply to internships
    • Anyone who has been applying to internships knows how stressful this is. You proofread your resume 5 million times, you question if that’s how you actually spell your name,  and you question whether or not you can actually do the work.
  • My phone screen and battery are pretty much dead. Therefore I have to come up with the money to buy a new iPhone. Who knew that the iPhone 7 was $900?!?
  • Last week was honestly the week from hell. I had a stats test AND a Spanish test the same day. Let’s be real math is pretty much a language within itself.
  • Spring Break was a blast BUT I had 2 interviews for 2 different internships. I was sweating bullets.
  • After the interview,  I was checking my phone and email every minute

Honestly, when I read that list it doesn’t seem like much has happened this month. But, when this is all happening at once it can become overwhelming.

In regards to the 2 internships, I landed both of them!! I will be helping a local brewery with their social media and possibly helping with a wedding reception. My other internship is a marketing one with Live Nation. So hello to adulting, beer and concerts all summer long!

Now that I have successfully landed 2 internships I can kind of relax. I say kind of because my Spring semester ends in May. So please say a little prayer for me because that means tons of final projects and tests.

Here’s to March and the many opportunities it brought me!

PHOTO DIARY | COLONIAL WILLIAMSBURG

Over Spring Break I made plans with my sister to take some cute photos! We both decided that going to Colonial Williamsburg would be the best place. This is because Colonial Williamsburg has a lot of history, cute brick roads, and a ton of Instagram-worthy photo opportunities (because that’s what matters).

One of the cool parts about Colonial Williamsburg is that you can basically walk anywhere! You can walk in and all around the houses. Also, you can go through gates that sometimes lead you to beautiful gardens like the one pictured behind me in the photo above! You never know what’s going to be around the corner!

While my sister & I were exploring we ran across a T.V set! My sister wanted to sneak in and snag some food but, I chickened out! I was afraid we would get caught because we would stick out like a sore thumb. Below is a photo of the catering truck! I bet the food was yummy.

*I believe they were shooting for a T.V show called “Turn: Washington’s Spies”. I regret not trying to sneak in with my sister!

My sister got some awesome photos of me in an elevator. In the first photo, I look a little scared because I was afraid that the elevator was going to go up or I was going to accidentally press a button! We weren’t supposed to be in there BUT it was totally worth it! The blue background really makes my shirt pop!

While we were shooting in the elevator we heard a loud buzzing noise and ran off! While we were running off we found another cool place to take some photos.The two photos below are definitely the ones that I love the most!

While walking around Colonial Williamsburg you will always see characters walking up and down the streets! It’s so cool to see their cute little costumes.

*I didn’t really think that woman was Little Red Riding Hood btw.

Exploring new places is always fun! I really enjoyed taking these photos with my sister. It was nice to just enjoy the beautiful weather we were (it was 30 degrees today)having!

It blows my mind that people travel from all over the world to take a tour of Colonial Williamsburg. I think this is because I live about 20 minutes away and take it for granted! But, now that I got to a college in the middle of nowhere I am very thankful to live so close to multiple historic areas such Colonial Williamsburg!
