The conditioner is called Junglemania, and it smells soooo good! It was 9.95 for 3.5 oz, but again, is supposed to last as long as 3 bottles of shampoo.
Seriously, you should try these things. They are just one of many things that you can buy in order to avoid those pesky 3 oz. rules on planes (especially for long trips where you don't want to check bags). Go to lushUSA.com to order yours! They have tons of other products, too, depending on your fancy.
Once I've figured out the longer term effects of these products, I'll let ya'll know, but so far, they work like a dream!
I work for a dining hall here on campus, and when it closes for the summer it sends everyone willing over to another dining hall to work. So, I'll be doing that for 25 hours a week. Plus, I just interviewed for an internship with the department of rec sports marketing department. They seemed to like me, and I REALLY would love to gain the experience, so keep 'em crossed!
That's 2 jobs at 40 hours a week. THEN there's the job that I took for 40 hours for one week transferring a company here in town from their old operating system to the new one.
I'm gonna have my work cut out for me! On the plus side, looks like I won't really have to work that much during the school year.

Because I've spent this entire year saving every penny for Europe and never once going outside of a strict monthly budget, spending the money gave me INCREDIBLE buyer's remorse, even though I've given myself a shopping budget for summer clothes. Luckily, whenever I look at this picture, I get all thrilled and happy! I hope hope HOPE that it fits well and that my first piece of Lilly turns me into a lifetime lover of it!
When I go to Europe this summer, I'm doing a blog about my travels!
Be sure and check it out here. I'll be posting about everywhere I go!
Be appropriate when commenting, my parents are reading! I don't need them knowing about my alter ego, preppy politico

I just want a good halter top in cute summery colors. American Eagle has like, one, but it doesn't come in great colors, and yes, it's all flowy! I don't know who decided that the female form should be camoflaged like that.
For all of ya'll who look adorable in these fashions, I am jealous because I can't buy a damn thing without looking like a freakin Ringling Brother's circus tent.
If you know where to find this ellusive fashion, please let me know!!
One thing I was worried about was what happens to the "romance" of reading a book? Getting lost in its pages? And the cover completely rectifies that- after my first chapter of my first book, it felt exactly the same as reading an actual book.
Another thing was, I like to read in the tub (my family mocks me incessantly, so consider myself mocked sufficiently), and I was wondering how I would do this with an expensive piece of technology. My boyfriend's mom and I did some research to see what other Kindle users do, and they just put the thing in a plastic bag. I take it out of its case for this purpose. Works like a dream!
The last thing I was concerned about was the whole wireless transfer of books in Europe situation. The wireless doesn't work in countries outside of the US and our territories, but you can buy the books on amazon.com, hook the kindle up to the computer, and transfer them to the device that way.
All in all, the BEST present ever- especially since I didn't have any idea it was coming! I can't wait to use this on the train from Florence to Rome!
housekeeping: When I'm in Europe, this will become a travel blog. I will try to update regularly, but I'm not sure of internet access and I won't have my computer, so I will do my best. I leave May 18 and return June 22. I might make a blog that is accessible to family/friends, so if I decide to do that, I will update ya'll on the address.
Secondly, Lauren over at Lauren Nicole Gifts is hosting an incredible giveaway. This Lilly Pulitzer bag is so cute and, of course, I would love to have it but decided to share the info! Just go on over to her site for info on how to win!
To keep this short I'm just going to post my other blogs separately.
