Favorite Things Swap

Last week, I was lucky enough to participate in a Favorite Things Swap hosted by Leeann at Join the Gossip. Leeann paired us with another blogger and we were instructed to spend around $20 [before shipping] on some of our favorite things and ship it off for them to enjoy. I was paired with Leanna, a lovely blogger from DC. Ladies, she hooked it up. I couldn't have been more thrilled with I opened her package! 

I must apologize for the fact that these pictures were taken on my bed. I was hoping to showcase the polish on my nails, the coffee mug with coffee steaming from it, etc. but I have had the worst cold for the past couple of days and just couldn't get around to it. 

I loved everything Leanna sent me! It was as if she knew me! 

First of all, she sent me the most adorable card explaining her reasoning for sending each item and why it was one of her favorite things. I thought that was a very special touch and really enjoyed getting to know her through it. 

Leanna sent me a coffee mug, which I loved. It not only is in one of my favorite colors but it is a larger coffee mug, which I am obsessed with. After reading her card I realized we both share a love for coffee! 

She also sent me a polka dot koozie. When I lived at my old apartment we had a koozie drawer where we put all our collected koozies. I absolutely love them. Aside from that, it is polka dot which makes it even more adorable.

Leanna sent me the most adorable pale pink polish from OPI which I hope to eventually show off to you ladies as soon as I'm well. I love pale pinks, they are perfect all times of the year and go with everything.

She also sent me a journal to write down little blog ideas I have through out the day. This was something I have been needing. I have been storing my blog ideas in a memo on my phone for months so this will definitely come in handy!

One of my favorite items she sent me was a pack of stationary. I love writing snail mail, especially since I moved away from my college roommates. This stationary is beautiful and I can't wait to put it to good use.

Lastly, Leanna sent me her favorite chocolate bar.. which was completely liquefied by the time it got to me. But, chocolate is chocolate. I put that sucker in the freezer and ate it anyways and it was DELICIOUS. 

Thank you so much Leanna for sending me all of your favorite things. I loved each and every one of them! Everyone should definitely check out Leanna's blog, OMG I'm Back In DC,  if you haven't already! She is such a sweetie and has definitely become a daily read of mine as soon as I discovered her through this fun swap!

Sorry it's been so long ladies, I am in fact still alive, and plan to be back to blogging regularly soon!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
