{LIFE} FREE Amazon Prime for 6 months!

I know that for some of us school is approaching soon. I just want to share with you guys a really helpful service from Amazon that I've been using for the past couple of weeks to order things for school such as textbooks, notebooks, laptop accessories, etc. If you're going back to school soon you probably have a school email address that you're given. Using that email address you can sign up for Amazon Prime for free! You get your first six months free which means free 2-day shipping on all eligible products. This is insanely useful because instead of waiting a week to a month sometimes you get your products in two business days. I have ordered so much stuff and every time it has been delivered on time. I really recommend you guys sign up for this service since it's free. You can go here to sign up or click below!


To ensure that you don't get charged after your 6 months are over you can cancel your service immediately. If you need help doing so, let me know! I just cancelled my future service today so I will have until February 2nd, 2015 and then my free Prime membership will expire.

To sign up all you need is a school email address that ends in .edu. Once you sign up they will send you a confirmation link to your school email address that you click on and ta-da! Your membership is activated. In addition to free 2-day shipping you also get many college student deals, plus if/when you do decide to pay for your membership students get 50% off making it only $49 for year-long membership. And if you don't want to pay for your membership, that's fine, but you should still sign up to get the free 6 months! You have nothing to lose and honestly it's incredibly useful. If you're in high school this is still really useful. I know when I was in high school we were given school email addresses. You might as well make use of it!

{GETS} VS/PINK haul!

So I went shopping last week and stopped by Victoria's Secret/PINK to get my free no show panty but I ended up buying a bunch of stuff. I'm really happy with my purchase though!

I ended up spending $80 total and they were having one of those deals where if you spend a certain amount you get something free with your purchase. This time it was a free getaway bag if you spend $75+. The getaway bag is retailed at $99 so it's definitely worth it if you're already buying stuff from them.

I got two lightly lined bras for $42 and my free no show panty ($9.50 at full price). If you don't feel like buying two they are $31 each I believe. The lightly lined bras from PINK are my favorite bras! They're incredibly comfortable and very smooth. I used to only buy push up bras but I've been transitioning to lightly lined/unlined bras. They are the most comfortable fit in my opinion! If you haven't signed up for PINK nation yet, you definitely should! They often mail you coupons for free panties which is always nice. There's no such thing as too much underwear in my opinion.

Next thing I got was a backpack for $50, which yes I know is pretty pricey. The most I've ever spent for a backpack before was $40, but I really liked the style of this one so I went for it. I loooooooove anything leopard print, I think it's incredibly sassy and cute! This backpack has three compartments and a laptop sleeve on the inside of the main compartment. There's a lot of space and I'm very excited to use this for my first year of college!

Like I said, if you spend $75+ you get a free getaway bag! I really love this bag; I think it's insanely useful! You could use it for vacations, the gym, sleepovers, etc. I used it for camp and it fit all my toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, contact lens solution, glasses, etc.), a comforter, sheets, and 4 days/3 nights worth of clothes, so yes it is very big. I wouldn't ever buy it for $99 but since I was already buying the other stuff it was really nice to get this as a bonus.

Well that's it for this haul, I'm in the process of editing my next haul post (yeah, I shop a lot for a broke college kid lol). I hope you guys liked this post! Let me know what you think in the comments.

{DIY} American flag shorts

So I was commissioned to make these shorts for a classmate last summer and I've finally gotten around to making a DIY post on them. These shorts are super easy to make, all you need are a few things!


  • pair of white shorts
  • blue and red fabric paint
  • paint brush
  • (optional) masking tape
  • star/square studs 

Basically tape off the areas you want to keep white. All areas marked with an A are the areas I taped off to keep white. All areas marked with a B I used the red fabric paint and all areas marked C I used the blue fabric paint on. After you let the paint dry you can then add whatever studs you want! This is actually a really easy project to do. If you try it, let me know what your results are!
