For my final swap this month, I was paired with Allison from Because I Said So! This was a new swap experience because I was already a reader/fan of Allison’s blog. She posts about just about everything, from her new apartment, her adult braces (poor thing!), and other fun life happenings! She is every so awesome – as evidenced by her post of Easter photo bloopers!
Allison sent me some of the sweetest spring items:
Upper left: Eos Sweet Mint lip balm and Essie’s Sugar Daddy. Sugar Daddy is a translucent jelly color – it would be perfect for professional settings or weddings, when I want something more than bare nails, but don’t want too much color. Allison has totally nailed my current love for blush!
Upper Right: Pretty cupcake wrappers so I can made sweet snacks! I love baking chocolate chip muffins, so these are perfect.
Lower Left: Cat toys! Allison knows who is the boss in our house (my baby cat)! These have a little raffia straw tails that Minnie just love.
Lower Right: How sweet are these little notecards?
The other thing in the box from Alison was the candle holder in the center of this picture. I, like many, am a candle-addict and this little white tin looks so cute with or without the lit candle. (And like all good decorators from Texas, I have a wooden star on my mantle…)
