Sweet Progress Box Swap with Nicole

I’m so excited that today is the big reveal day for the Sweet Progress Winter Box Swap. Dean from Mrs. A.O.K. a Work in Progress and Ashley from Happy.Pretty.Sweet. got together to host this awesome Galentine’s Day swap. I have to say it was a lot of fun getting to meet a new blogger and going shopping for things for the swap. Then receiving my own box of happy mail from my partner.

I have to begin my saying a big “Thank You” to my partner Nicole for sending me a box full of goodies. Nicole is a major foodie and when you visit her blog For the Love of Food you will find lots of yummy recipes. I’m so happy that I got a chance to meet Nicole through this swap.

Nicole was a super partner, she really put together an awesome box for the Galantine’s Day box. I’ll stop my babbling now and get to the reveal. 🙂

Like I mentioned before Nicole is a major foodie and she was sweet enough to send me some homemade sweet treats. She sent red wine brownies and chocolate haystacks. Let me tell you both of them were really Delicious!!!

Nicole also sent a Burt’s Bees Lavender Fields scented candle. I love Burt’s Bees products and I love the smell of lavender so I really love this candle. I’ve been burning it in the kitchen while I clean up.

I really loved the next three items so much. I LOVE reading magazines!!! And Nicole sent me two local Louisiana food magazines. There are a lot of great looking recipes in each of these magazines. Plus, she also sent a bag of Cajun Style Red Beans. I love beans and red beans & rice is so yummy. I can’t wait to try out these beans.

Nicole also sent a cute little notebook with New Orleans on the front, some black & white notecards, an adult coloring calendar, and collagen facial mask that I’m really excited to try out.

But there are even more items to reveal. Nicole also sent me some yummy Brain Boost Super Green Tea and this cute cup. I really love drinking green and herbal teas. So I have been drinking this everyday since I got my box. I also had a bag of blueberry hemp seed snacks that were really yummy which are in the picture below. I took another picture but I didn’t realize it was really blurry until I was writing this post. Unforunatily I ate all of the snacks and threw away the bag before I realized it was blurry. But those snacks were really good.

Wasn’t this box awesome? I’m so thankful that Nicole sent me so many goodies to enjoy. To see what I sent Nicole and what all the other particpants recieved head over Sweet Progress Winter Box Swap Linkup at Dean’s or Ashley’s blogs.
