A couple months ago some wonderful bloggers Kiana and Madeline reached out and asked a group of bloggers if they would participate in a mail swap. Everyone that agreed got together and decided to send each other a box of our favorite Spring items! After we figured out our Spring box we were all emailed who the blogger was that we would be sending our items to and made sure to keep it within $20. The boxes had to be sent out by a specific date and then you waited for your box!
It seriously is like Christmas getting a package in the mail full of fun goodies! I sent my box to Jessica at Mason Jars and Lemon Bars and received a box from Erica at Good Job Momma. Erica got me super excited to receive my box because she did a sneak peek on her Instagram story. So when I saw it I knew it was coming soon and anxiously checked my mail every day. When it finally came my sister sent me a snap chat asking if she could open it and, if anyone is as protective with their packages as I am, I quickly said no!
When I finally got home I ripped open the package and was excited to see the fun colors right from the beginning. Erica had sent a cute bag (perfect timing since my makeup bag just broke!), some EOS lotion, a cute succulent plant, nail polish, lemon hand sanitizer, the letter “L”, and some super cute socks! I took the plant to my office at work and it is the perfect little addition to my space. Plus I don’t have to take care of it – win win! The “L” I am planning on making into a bookmark by adding a little ribbon, and I have worn the socks probably 100 times already. Nothing like pair of fun new socks right??
I had a lot of fun putting together my box for Jessica but loved getting a box even more! You can tell that Erica really put some thought into her items by researching what I might like on top of her favorites. I love these mails swaps because not only do you get fun new things but you also get to meet new bloggers! I was already a follower of Erica’s blog but there were a few ladies in the swap I had never had the chance to see before. It was great seeing the list of everyone involved and being able to check out their blogs and connect with other influencers.
If you would like to sign up for the next mail swap you can do so here. This box will be for June/July and everyone is welcome. See the other Spring mail swaps by checking out the other blogs:
