You can get the Rose Buds and Vanilla here. With this perfume, you get the scent of both florals and vanilla. It is not very overpowering, which is great!! You can get the Marigold and Gardenia here. This scent is also floral, but I think it is much more subtle!! Both of these scents are great!

Get this deep conditioning mask here. This is great for all hair types!! After just one use, I could feel and see a noticeable difference in my hair. My hair sees one or two heat products every day, so it is always in need of extra nourishment. This product definitely worked great for nourishing my hair and making it feel healthy again. It also made my hair so smooth!!

Get this product here. Forewarning, this product is much thicker than normal under-eye creams. That being said, it did make my eyes feel much more moisturized. It did seem to smooth my skin some, but I am not sure it is entirely worth the price of a full-sized product.

If you love normal Sour Punch Straws, then you will love these! They are super sour and delicious. It’s hard to not eat the whole package in one sitting – trust me, I tried really hard and failed!!

Because I just got a manicure, my sweet friend Bailey Pettis (@baileypettis) tried these imPRESS stick-on nails. Here’s her review: “I liked them a lot and loved how they made my nails feel clean. I would recommend them to people with larger hands than mine so they don’t look unnatural!” I can’t find these exact ones online, but go here to shop their other colors.

Hey y’all, happy hump day!! After last week’s vacation, this week just seems to be dragging on. Today, I’m going to give y’all a quick rundown on the Splash Voxbox and tell y’all about my favorites!! This box included:

MIKE AND IKE® SOUR-LICIOUS ZOURS®

Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Tapioca Dry Shampoo

Tree Hut Exfoliating Mud Mask Detoxifying Charcoal

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink™ Liquid Lipstick

Nature’s Origin™ Lavender Roll-On

SinfulColors #PRIDE Collection

I’m not going to lie, this was probably what I was most excited for in this VoxBox. I have a major sweet tooth, love sour candy, and love Mike and Ike’s, so this was a perfect combination for me. The box comes with five flavors: sour watermelon, sour lemon, sour cherry, sour blue raspberry, and sour green apple. My absolute favorites were sour watermelon and sour green apple. I don’t like cherry flavoring, so I already knew I wasn’t going to like those. The sour lemon ones were extremely bitter!! The sour blue raspberry ones were okay, but I could have done without them.

This is one of the best dry shampoos I have ever tried. It didn’t leave my hair feeling sticky at all, like some dry shampoos do. It also has the most amazing scent (if you like smelling like a sugar cookie!). This will definitely be a staple in my gym bag and on all of my vacations!

After a week at the lake and in the sun, my skin was desperate for a good mask. This charcoal mud mask was just what I needed. I left it on for about 15 minutes, which might have been too long because my face was so tight at the end that I could barely talk!! However, when I washed it off, my face felt so clean and soft! Absolutely loving this mask!

I tried this in shade 15 (Lover). Personally, I thought the color was a little too dark, especially for summer. It does stay on really well, but it was super sticky on my lips for hours. Maybe I’ll get used to the stickiness if I keep using it!! It definitely does its job though!

I have always been a huge fan of lavender, especially spraying it on my pillows to help me fall asleep. This roll-on is perfect. I roll some on my wrists before I get in bed, and I sleep like a baby all night. This sample isn’t seeming to be lasting me very long, but I’m pretty sure that’s because one of my brothers has discovered its magical powers and has also been using it every night!

This polish is shade “Bon Bons”. I wouldn’t recommend this polish if you’re looking for a long-lasting manicure. It started to chip off of my nails almost immediately. The glitter in the polish also makes it difficult to apply. It takes multiple coats to get a red nail.

I am loving this Save the Fishies water bottle!! It’s made of glass, which makes it super easy to clean and to know how much water you have already had! I love putting some fruit in my water during the summers, especially berries! It makes the water taste great and refreshing, and it makes me want to actually drink water! It also leaves a little treat for when I finish my water 😉

I’m excited to share with y’all that if you use my code, “AlexU25“, you can save 25% on anything you purchase!!

Happy shopping!

Tag me in your Sand Cloud pics so I can give y’all some love!

Hey Y’all

My name is Alex Ussery! I am ending my freshman year at the University of Alabama, and I am an Alpha Gamma Delta. I am starting this blog because my friends and I love to talk about fashion and makeup and all sorts of other girly things. I am looking forward to reviewing the products that companies send me and talking about my life as a college student. First off, I would like to start with letting y’all get to know me. I was born in Chesapeake, Virginia. I lived in Puerto Rico for two years, and I loved my time there! My family currently lives in Alpharetta, Georgia. I have three younger brothers, two of which are twins. I adore all three of them, but they have made it their purpose in life to drive me crazy. My parents are two of the most awesome people I have ever met, and I love them with all of my heart. They have supported me through everything – even my unexpected decision to attend the University of Alabama instead of their beloved University of Georgia. We are obsessive travelers and intend to always keep our family moving and everyone around us on their toes. My life at Alabama is pretty similar to most people who go to college. I love to go out with my friends and my sorority sisters, and we are always laughing and doing spontaneous things. Living three hours away from home is as hard as it seems, but it is an inevitable part of life and is making me a more independent person. I love my life in Alabama, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I cannot wait to get my blogging career started and start connecting with y’all!
