Cara Swap Box Reveal: Going Green!

I participated in the Cara Box exchanged hosted by Wifessionals this month and it was a lot of fun! I was able to meet two new bloggers, Whitney from The Decor Chronicles, who I sent a box to (you can see what I sent her on her post found here), and Hayley from Beautiful Exchange, who sent a box to me! I really enjoyed getting to know both of these lovely ladies this month.

This month's theme was "Go Green" since Earth day is April 22. This was a hard theme for me to stick with, but I was able to find what I hope were some cool gifts for my partner.

I loved the box I received from Hayley! Everything was so thoughtful with a sweet note attached.

Have you even tried that eos lip balm? It's so cool and shaped like a ball. Super fun to put on your lips too!

Some fancy eco-friendly soap for my kitchen! Which was perfect because I've been using dish soap for my hands and it dries them out so badly.

Hayley made these adorable tea towels for me! See her stenciling tutorial here. She made them for my bathroom, and they go perfectly with my new shower curtain...but I actually needed them in my kitchen so it worked out perfectly! They go really well in here as well :)

I love this candle and matching plate! Adorable!

I also told Hayley how I am hoping to start a small garden this year, and she gave me some gardening gloves and daisies to plant! I hope to see them sprouting soon. Thanks so much Hayley! I love all of my gifts!

I really enjoyed this swap and enjoyed meeting new bloggy friends; however, I wasn't expecting shipping to cost so much so I'm not sure if I'll continue to do it. But it was so fun that I just might :)

  6. Looks like you got some great items! I'm thinking about signing up for this month's, but I haven't decided yet. I haven't had the best of luck with swaps in the past and I hate paying for shipping. Maybe I'll try it once...
