I remember going off to college as if it was yesterday! Shopping for dorm life essentials like bedding, furniture, new clothes, and decorations was so fun to start my new life at the University of Nebraska Kearney. I was scared and excited all at the same time; leaving the farm and moving to Kearney, though a small college town, it sure felt like a big city to me back then!

 

Today I’m photographing some new “Beauty Don’t Come Cheap!” products that have arrived and I’m realizing how many items I have that are PERFECT for the little college diva in our lives! Soooooo I’ve created my “Dorm Room Gift Pak” just for her!

 

The Pak includes 5 items, ALL custom embroidered with the fun logo I’ve created to promote my song “Beauty Don’t Come Cheap!”.

 

•  My travel laundry bag is an absolute necessity! It’s not just any travel laundry bag, it’s OVERSIZED and measures 24″ wide by 36″ tall, with a draw string closure at the top and a handy over the shoulder strap. The fabric is a soft waffle weave cotton/polyester blend, this is a must have for trips to the dorm laundry room OR weekend trips home so MOM can do her laundry…

 

• Choose between a plush embroidered robe or the diva robe wrap for your dorm room diva! Both items are made of the same waffle weave fabric as the laundry bag, very absorbent with minimal shrinkage and wrinkling because– Diva’s have no time for ironing! The embroidered robe has 3/4 sleeves, above the knee and has two pockets on the front, while the wrap has a velcro front closure and an elastic band on the back. And guess what?! One size fits all Divas!

 

• To match the embroidered robe or diva robe wrap- these comfy bath slippers that have an open toe with velcro to adjust for size, and skid resistant rubber soles. Available in S,M,L/XL.

 

•  One of my favorite items is the weekender cosmetic bag is so roomy, 9x6x4 inches, zipper closure across the top, with inside pocket and easy to wipe clean plastic lining.

 

• The Dorm Room Gift Pak is not complete without the absolute best sleep maskever!  Hand made with love out of luxurious minky fabric that resembles real mink to the touch, and has a pretty lace elastic band. She will be styling and profiling for her late night study sessions for sure!

 

Dorm Room Gift Pak” is available at CandyCountry.com in the Candy Shop, of course! All five items normally retails for $189, but for a limited time, I’m discounting the pak $50! For $139, choose between a robe and a wrap, Hot Pink, Lime Green, or Tropical Blue pak. For the extra special diva in your life, I will accept custom orders; choose the color of embroidery thread she would like on a white products.

 

I am also including a FREE download of my song, “Beauty Don’t Come Cheap!” which is the inspiration behind all these fun products! And one final item, I’m tossing in a mirrored compact for our Dorm Room Diva’s purse…and I said, “Honey, Beauty Don’t Come Cheap!”.

Gone Fishin’

We all have a story about the one that got away
There’s more fish in the sea is all I hear ‘em say
Time to put myself back out there today
As I dip my toes in the dating pool
It’s a brave new world with online tools
Everybody’s doin’ it so it must be cool

 

GONE FISHIN’
Throw my line and start wishing
I’ll catch what I’ve been missing
I got a nibble a wink, will we swim or sink,
I’m Gone fishin’

 

No worms or flies gonna hook my mate
I’ll post a few pictures cause that’s my bait
Cast my line then sit back and wait

 

Beware of bottom feeders huntin’ sugar mamas
Cradle robbers and prima donna’s
Playboys hauling all sorts of drama

 

GONE FISHIN’
Throw my line and start wishing
I’ll catch what I’ve been missing
I got a nibble a wink, will we swim or sink
I’m Gone fishin’

 

I’m just a country girl that likes to rock
I’ve got a few more tricks in my tackle box
I’ll be reeling in the catch of the day
He’ll measure up or be on his way
Size does matter what else can I say

 

GONE FISHIN’
Throw my line and start wishing
I’ll catch what I’ve been missing
I got a nibble a wink, will we swim or sink, I’m Gone fishin’

 

Fishin’… fishin’… fishin’… Gone fishin’… yeah…
Gone fishin’… fishin’.. Gone fishin’… Gone fishin’…

Drinkin You Out of my Mind

By Candy Fernaux and Wyatt Easterling
© 2015

 

I’m gonna get dressed up to paint this town
Stay out all night and burn it down
No more sitting around singing the blues….
It’s time to face the cold hard truth
And get started getting over you
There’s a brand new fairytale about to begin….
 

Tonight I’m drinkin’ you out of my mind
Working on leaving your memory behind
I’ll raise a glass and you can kiss my ass
For treating me so unkind
Tonight I’m drinkin’ you out of my mind
 

Prince charming sits on every stool
Buying me drinks and playing it cool
I wonder which one will be the first out of the chute….
When you get bucked off and hit the ground
You’ve got to saddle up for another round
What better way to leave you behind….
 

Tonight I’m drinkin’ you out of my mind
Working on leaving your memory behind
I’ll raise a glass and you can kiss my ass
For treating me so unkind
Tonight I’m drinkin’ you out of my mind
 

Tomorrow I’ll wake and swear I’m done with men
Kick him out of the bed and vow to never drink again
And this is where the vicious cycle begins
 

Tonight I’m drinkin’ you out of my mind
Working on leaving your memory behind
I’ll raise a glass and you can kiss my ass
For treating me so unkind
Tonight I’m drinkin’ you out of my mind
 
Tonight I’m drinkin’ you out of my mind
Tonight I’m drinkin’ you out of my mind

Sweet innocence

By Candy Fernaux and Wyatt Easterling
© 2015

 

In the beginning, there’s a girl
Innocent and young and she rules her world
She’s sugar, and she’s spice
She’s precious and everything nice

 

She has sweet innocence
She don’t have a care
Sweet innocence
She don’t know it’s there

 

Then one day there comes a boy
Who breaks her heart and steals her joy
She hurts and she cries
She swears she’s going to die

 

He takes her sweet innocence
He no longer cares
Sweet innocence
She’s alone and scared

Gone are the days where she feels free
So full of doubt and agony
She’s like a ship lost out at sea
Living day to day aimlessly

 

She wants her sweet innocence
It always seems to flee
She cries for sweet innocence
She wants to be free

 

But the world, it doesn’t end
The Son comes out she finds a friend
Shining bright all around
He’ll never ever let her down

 

He brings her Sweet Innocence
She no longer cares
Sweet Innocence
She don’t know it’s there
Sweet Innocence
Sweet Innocence
Sweet Innocence

Beauty Don’t Come Cheap

By Candy Fernaux and Wyatt Easterling
© 2015

 

He complains about women being gold diggers
They want dinner, drinks, and flowers go figure
He brags about the dates he’s had this week
And bitches about the money he’s blown on each
Obviously he hasn’t a clue
About all the things we women do

 

I told him before he rambled on anymore
What a woman spends before she walks out her door
From the top of her head to the soles of her feet
I explained the cost to look so sweet
I said honey, Beauty Don’ t Come Cheap

 

I’m slavin’ on my figure nearly every day
‘Cause I’m not naturally built this way
And this pretty face takes a lot of product
With facials and peels and did I mention make up
Victoria’s Secret gives me more than I’ve got
And I know you men love that a lot

 

I told him before he rambled on anymore
What a woman spends before she walks out her door
From the top of her head to the soles of her feet
I explained the cost to look so sweet
I said honey, Beauty Don’ t Come Cheap

 

Joe makes Jeans that fit my tush just right
Jimmy Choo gives me just enough heighth A mani, a pedi, bikini wax
Then I’m off to the spa for an herbal wrap
And all this is only what you can see
You can’t put a price on what’s beneath

 

I told him before he rambled on anymore
What a woman spends before she walks out her door
From the top of her head to the soles of her feet
I explained the cost to look so sweet
I said honey, Beauty Don’ t Come Cheap
Honey, Beauty Don’t Come Cheap Cheap Cheap don’t be so cheap
‘Cause nobody likes a cheap man…..

West With The Night

By Candy Fernaux and Wyatt Easterling
© 2015

 

He flew an old airplane and could land on a dime
A long haul trucker most of the time
He wore pearl snap shirts, a white Stetson hat
He was a maverick and a saint

 

He’d come flying in Sunday’s and circle the house
All of us kids would come scrambling out
We’d run to the field and watch him sailing in
Oh the stories ‘n the trinkets from the places he’d been

 

Then it was up to the clouds and away he would go
Or kicking up dust in his truck down the road
Coming or going he was always a sight
Riding into the sunset…West with the Night….

 

A flat top Gibson never far from his side
A black saddle with silver whenever he’d ride
You could say that Gramps was one of a kind
The silent type ‘til he spoke his mind

 

Then it was up to the clouds and away he would go
Or kicking up dust in his truck down the road
Coming or going he was always a sight
Riding into the sunset…West with the Night….

 

He stood ten feet tall in everyone’s eyes
A cowboy gentleman – his way of life

 

Then it was up to the clouds and away he would go
Or kicking up dust in his truck down the road
Coming or going he was always a sight
Riding into the sunset… West with the Night….
…………………West with the Night…………………….

farm girl

By Candy Fernaux and Paul Jefferson

She put a six inch lift kit
On her daddy’s old Ford truck
She’s got a boat hooked on the hitch
She can back it up (she can back it up)

 

She can drive a stick shift
Four on the floor
A V8 or a slant six
An’ she can change the oil

 

She’s a farm girl
From Texas up to North Dakota
A farm girl
God broke the mold when He made her
A Farm girl
Can the chick get a hallelujah
Farm girl
She’s a farm girl

 

She followed the bright lights
Out to the big city
They said she’d make the big time
All she’s got to be is pretty (and she’s so pretty)

 

Wasn’t long ‘fore she was missin’
Home on the rural route
Take the girl out of the country
But you can’t take the country out of a

 

Farm girl
From Texas up to North Dakota
A farm girl
God broke the mold when He made her a
Farm girl
Can the chick get a hallelujah
Farm girl
She’s a farm girl

 

Homemade hot as cherry pie
She’s a spoonful sweeter
If you been looking in a stack
You just found a needle

 

She’s a farm girl
From Texas up to North Dakota
A farm girl
God broke the mold when He made her
A Farm girl
She’s a farm girl
God broke the mold when He made her
A Farm girl
Can the chick get a hallelujah
Farm girl
She’s a farm girl
She’s a farm girl

Hard Candy Christmas

By Dolly Parton and Carol Hall
© 1982

 

Maybe I’ll dye my hair
Maybe I’ll move somewhere
Maybe I’ll get a car
Maybe I’ll drive so far
That I’ll lose track
Me, I’ll bounce right back

 

Maybe I’ll sleep real late
Maybe I’ll lose some weight
Maybe I’ll clear my junk
Maybe I’ll just get drunk
On apple wine
Me, I’ll be just

 

Fine and dandy
Lord it’s like a hard candy Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down
I’ll be fine and dandy
Lord it’s like a hard candy Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow get me way down

 

Hey, maybe I’ll learn to sew
Maybe I’ll just lie low
Maybe I’ll hit the bars
Maybe I’ll count the stars until dawn
Me, I will go on

 

Maybe I’ll settle down
Maybe I’ll just leave town
Maybe I’ll have some fun
Maybe I’ll meet someone
And make him mine
Me, I’ll be just

 

Fine and dandy
Lord it’s like a hard candy Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
Still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down
I’ll be fine and dandy
Lord it’s like a hard candy Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down

 

I’ll be fine
I’ll be fine
