So I’m fresh out of the shower which means I’ve got a fresh shave.
OH MY GOSH AT THIS NEW RAZOR
I normally wouldn’t go crazy about a new razor but I can’t help it with this one. The Schick Hydro Silk has 5 blades which I absolutely love and this really cool moisturizing bar thing (it’s actually like a cool water activated serum thing). My legs have never been so smooth it’s crazy. I suffer from really dry skin and I’m amazed at these results. My legs weren’t screaming at me for lotion the second I got out of the shower either. I would HIGHLY recommend going and picking up this product!!!
Disclaimer: I received this product completely free thanks to BzzAgent and Schick.
Check out my video about this campaign as well !!
Bzzagent has seriously been making my week!! The other day I posted about a Glade Expressions Bzzagent campaign https://theglamorouscollegelife.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/glade-expressions-bzzagent-campaign/
So I went to the post office knowing I was getting another package from Bzzagent and I was sooo excited to find my box for the Schick Hydro Silk campaign. This razor is FULL size and even comes with an extra cartridge!! These razors retail for over $10 in drug stores so I’m so excited to be trying this for FREE.
I have tried this razor before and was very happy with it last time I tried it so I’m so excited to be trying it again!
Check back for updates later to see how the razor is treating me !!!

Well I received another Bzzagent campaign, and it’s a good one!!!
I was selected to try the Glade Expressions collection!!
My package from Bzzagent contained a coupon for a free Glade Expressions Mist Starter Kit and another coupon for a free Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser!! I went to Walmart and got my products and boy do they smell amazing. I put the oil diffuser in the bathroom and the scent is so fabulous. It’s not an overpowering scent at all, and that’s perfect for our small bathroom. I love the Expressions mist because whenever a funky smell comes into the suite (I live in a dorm, so this is common) the mist spray comes right in handy and gets rid of it!!!

So tonight I chose to have dinner in my schools “student union” or “lancer cafe”, which is just basically another place for us to eat. I was sitting in a booth doing some homework when I really started thinking about how expensive everything is in here. We have one of those f’real smoothie/milkshake machines that you usually see in gas stations and what not, and these are priced about $3.69, down the street at Sheetz there $2.69. Longwood, where do you think this money comes from? We’re college students, WE’RE BROKE. You’re probably thinking why I don’t just go and drive down the street to save a dollar, well I can’t because I’m not allowed to have a car up here, so I’m stranded, paying for overly priced food that isn’t that great.
I cannot wait to come home. For good. Hurry up May.
IT’S MY BIRTHDAY WEEKEND !!!!
AND IT’S SNOWING !!!
Hehehehe, just thought I would throw my excitement out there. I am so happy that I’m getting to spend my birthday with my favorite people, and cannot wait for my mom to come visit!!!
So quick update on my life basically!!
I’ve been invited to new NEW Bzzagent campaigns this week, one for the new spring Glade Expressions scents, and one for the Schick Hydro Silk Razor. I’m soooo excited to get to try these new products COMPLETELY free thanks to Bzzagent. If you have no idea what Bzzagent is check out my post about it here !!
So keep on the lookout for some blog posts regarding everything I receive from Bzzagent come the next few weeks!!
Also, I’m sooo sorry for my lack of posts but I’ve been really busy with school work and all my transfer crap to be able to post. But, I’m sooo excited to finally know my plans for the rest of my academic career!! Starting next year I will no longer be a Longwood Lancer. I will be starting at Thomas Nelson Community College this summer to start the journey to receiving my Associates Degree in Human Services. Come my junior year of college I plan on being at ODU to receive my Bachelors in Psychology.
Getting my Masters degree is also a top priority but I’ll start focusing on that when it’s a little closer.
I also want to let you guys know that I will be starting a video series regarding what freebies I receive in the mail every two weeks. I also will be following up with a blog post regarding where I get my freebies and any other basic information like that. So be on the look out!!!
Catch ya later dudes :]
So as you guys are probably aware I love love love love LOVE freebies, and I’ve found a great way to get my hands on some of these freebies is by joining “word of mouth” companies. Now your probably thinking “what the heck is a word of mouth company” and I’ll tell ya!! A “word of mouth” company is a company that works with various companies to help get their products tested by the public, and most of these products are things that aren’t available to the public yet. It’s basically a way to get feedback on products that haven’t quite hit the general public yet, and by giving you free products to try your more likely to talk to your friends about this product, getting the word out!!!
So why am I writing about this?!!?
BECAUSE I LOVE BZZAGENT !!!!
Bzzagent is one of the BEST word of mouth companies out there, and it’s soooooo EASY.
Here’s there official description of their company!!
“Connecting people and their favorite brands since 2001, BzzAgent is the leading social marketing company. What’s that mean to you? We put products in the hands of hundreds of thousands of real consumers and help them share their opinions about them with friends and family via reviews, Facebook posts, photos and videos, blog posts and more. We wouldn’t call ourselves heroes, but it’s okay if you want to.”
I’ve personally had GREAT success with Bzzagent and I’ve only been a member for a few months now. So far I’ve received Afrin Nasal Spray, Neutrogena Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream (which is amazing by the way), and a month trial of Redbox Instant (basically Netflix by Redbox). They have TONS of campaigns going on and to qualify for these you take various (short) surveys to see if your a good fit. It’s an EXTREMEY easy!!!

Let me start by saying that blogging is a form of procrastination for me now, especially when I’m reading (kind-of reading) Gilgamesh. I went to the library in hopes that it would help me focus and knock out this reading and it hasn’t. Well, it did for a little, until I went to the restroom and saw someone blogging, whoops!!
If you understand Gilgamesh, comment below and help me understand. 😀
I wouldn’t be a good blogger if I didn’t tell you about the highlight of my day, and it was my Psychology class. If you were unaware, Psychology is my major and my life dream is to open my own counseling practice one day.
Some background on why that’s my dream:
I went to a counselor all through high school to help me with my depression and anxiety and she changed my life in such ways that I could no longer see myself doing anything else other than helping others with the same problems! I also love the concept of running my own business (I’m about of a control freak, so I want to work for myself) and I’m kind of an office junky who LOVES to do paper work. But after about four years of seeing a counselor and coming out a new person it helped mold my life dream into something I really could see myself doing.
I also have a huge feeling I’m going to love my professor because he was going over something in the syllabus and he said, “Ain’t nobody got time for that” and I was weak. Not many professors would ever say something like that, and flat out say that they don’t want to bore you.
If you haven’t seen the video, check out the autotune verison. Not the ghetto verison, she’s ghetto enough!!!
It’s a good start to a great semester/year. Even though I might be dead by the end of the semester with this work load :p
BACK TO GILGAMESH
RIP DWIGHT K. SCHRUTE THE BETA FISH
So the “official” first day of the Spring semester is here, and it’s such a crappy day to bring it in. It’s cold and rainy (the cold rain) and everyone’s plan of dressing to impress on the first day was completely ruined by the weather. My schedule this semester is much more hectic than last semester so just a warning now because I probably won’t be as post happy as I have been. I’m in the cafeteria (or d-hall as we call it) and I’m completely amazed at some of the changes. In the middle of our dining hall they’ve put this massive pizza center in and it’s equipped with our very own fire brick oven, and oh my gosh, the pizza is AMAZING. I know pizza probably isn’t the greatest choice during my $200 wager with my boyfriend to lose 30 pounds, but I couldn’t resist it.
INSERT BREAK TO GET DESERT HERE 😀
As you may know I did not have a roommate last semester (due to some issues) and I now have a roommate. I’m so so so so happy to say that she’s a sweetheart. They probably couldn’t have paired me with someone better, such a relief!!! But as of right now, my room is a train wreck! I’m having to get used to sharing the room again, and I’m realizing how much crap I have, but it’s coming a long quite nicely!!
Random thought: This desert I grabbed is extremely weird and kind of taste like a soft not as good Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookie.
Anyways back to my room report! I’ll post pictures of my room probably this weekend when my roommate and I are more settled and the room doesn’t look like an unorganized mess.
Well of to World Literature and Economics!!
So it’s really late and my body has no idea that it should probably be sleeping right now, but that’s okay because it gives me some time to think, and enjoy some yogurt. Boy, do I love me some yogurt. Preferably Yoplaits Red Velvet but whatever is free or super cheap that week works 😀
So what’s on my mind tonight? Oh yeah, I have to go back to Longwood tomorrow.
Let me try to explain why I dislike Longwood so much. First things first, Longwood is absolutely beautiful, and I’m really convinced that if Longwood was a little closer to civilization and my house I’d be completely in love with it. But, it’s a party school (shocker, I know right) but then again what school isn’t. I went into college with an “i’m gonna party 24/7” attitude, and boy was I surprised. I found myself in my dorm NEVER going out because it just didn’t seem worth it to go out and f*** up all my parents hard earned money to put me in college just to go out and feel like crap the next morning. Oh, and another thing, I’m not a big drinker (it only took one vomit filled night to make that decision). I don’t even consider myself a social drinker either, because I really do enjoy this virgin drink at Olive Garden and I’ll probably continue to order it when I’m of legal drinking age :]
Longwood’s food is GOD AWFUL. The freshman 15 doesn’t exsist at LU because you really live on a cereal diet and possibly a sandwich every now and then kinda thing. Over my winter break I’ve been eating non-stop 24 hours a day just because I know I’ll be withering away come tomorrow. It’s true, it’s really bad.
Here’s where I started to realize how random and not organized this post was. But it’s 2:32 a.m and just face it, my brain isn’t organized at this point.
Pinterest might be why I don’t sleep too 😀
