    Is a Menstrual Cup Actually Life Changing?

    I heard about menstrual cups a couple years ago when Diva Cup started to get popular. At the time, I had no interest in trying one. I was completely content with my tampons and pads. Then, a couple months ago, I got tired of paying the $8-$10 for a box of pads or tampons. Around the same time I saw Kayla was trying out a menstrual cup and so I was pushed over the edge and bought one myself.

    I took the Put A Cup In It quiz to help me pick a cup, and then get a discount. HOLLA! Shout out to Kayla for telling me about it and inspiring me to use a menstrual cup in the first place.

    After taking the quiz, I decided on the Lena Sensitive Large out of the three I was recommended. I was recommended this cup because I have a heavy flow and a high cervix.

    Putting it in isn’t hard. Getting it to open is hard. However, this is just my opinion and not all girls agree.

    DIY Salon Acrylic Nails At Home

    diy acrylic nails

    I have always dreamed of having long beautiful nails. You know, those nails that you can tap on everything and that make you seem so elegant and put together?

    Like I remember forcing my mom to buy me those stick on nails as a kid. And I also remember being so frustrated when they would fall off every five minutes. So when I heard my co-worker say she used glue-on nails I was skeptical. Turns out, they’re one of the best things that I could have tried.

    What kind of nails do I use?

    The first pack I bought were the Kiss Naturals in the stiletto shape. After I used all of those, I ordered two one-hundred packs off Amazon of the stiletto shape again. However, this time they weren’t the natural nails, so they aren’t as thick, and look strange when worn without polish. They are longer and pointer though. Neither differences were a big deal for me since I always paint them and always file them down quite a bit.

    All of Kiss’s nails have a tiny number on the bottom to tell you the size so you don’t have to waste time trying to sort them yourself, too. The smaller the number, the larger the nail. I haven’t tried their already painted nails, but I feel like they would work the exact same, you just can’t buy them in bulk.

    Christmas Wishlist 2018

    *Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. If you click on a product link, I may receive a small compensation at no additional cost to you. I only recommend products I love or use myself!

    I wasn’t positive if I was going to be doing another one of these posts this year, but y’all asked for it on Twitter so here we are.

    This year I really thought I would be asking for mostly practical things. But here I am, 21 years old, still asking for Shawn Mendes merch and a novelty lamp. Although I would like to argue the lamp is practical since my bedroom is always so dark. Just watch my Vlogmas vlogs and you’ll see.

    Which yes, I am doing Vlogams!! I didn’t think I would be doing as well as I am, but we’re on day 9 and I’ve uploaded every one or two days!! So proud of myself honestly.

    But now what you really came here for! Here’s my Christmas wishlist for 2018:

    Team Peter Kavinsky

    The only way you wouldn’t know my love for TATBIL and Peter Kavinsky would be if you live under a rock. Or don’t follow me on Twitter.

    Peter quickly became every girl’s dreamboat, but I would like to use this time to state he was mine first. Thank you.

    Moving on, I found this absolutely perfect tee from My Oh My Supply Co that says “Team Peter Kavinsky” and if someone were to buy it for me I would love them forever and ever. Read more…

    Formulate Review: Is Custom Shampoo and Conditioner Worth the Hype?

    Formulate Review: Is custom shampoo and conditioner worth it?

    *This post is in collaboration with Formulate. I received the products mentioned for free to review. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that support College with Caitlyn.

    We all know I never wash my hair, but when I do, I only use products I know will keep my hair looking great for the five or six days I don’t shampoo. But I decided to take a risk and try out a new product. For the last five weeks, I’ve been using custom shampoo and conditioner from the new company Formulate.

    I had super high hopes for Formulate’s formula (oooh that was fun to say) because they specifically engineer your shampoo and conditioner to account for your natural hair, your hair goals, where you live, and your lifestyle. Sounds promising right? So let’s get into this review.

    formulate custom shampoo and conditioner

    Pros

    No sulfates. Sulfates are the things in shampoo that make your hair feel knotty and slick while trying to wash it. I haven’t used a shampoo with sulfates in years so I was glad to find out Formulate doesn’t use sulfates. Formulate is also free from preservatives and parabens and is cruelty-free. These are all super important to me because I try to live as natural a life as possible and try to live as vegan a lifestyle as possible.

    You choose the smell and they are all as strong as you want them to be. I chose medium and it’s not overpowering, but you know how in books people in love say their crush’s hair smells like oranges or something? Well, since I chose the Freshly Squeezed scent, my hair really does smell like oranges for the first day or so after washing!

    The different scents they have are : Green with Envy (green tea and honey), Verdant (grass, lilies, eucalyptus), Tidal (coconut, sea, warm sand), Shoreline (spice, citrus, sea), Freshly Squeezed (sweet orange, tangerine), Burgeon (blooming orange blossom), and At Dawn (green apple, pear, rose).
