Valentine Swap Fun!

This year I found a blogger who was doing a Valentine's Swap box and wanted to know who would like to join. I had never really done a swap before but it sounded like fun so, I joined in.

I was partnered to swap with Olivia aka Liv. I emailed her and found out some things about her. We chatted a couple of times over email. It turns out she was a swap box newbie too. This was going to be interesting!
After a couple of emails, we exchanged addresses. We had to spend at least $10 but not obligated to more unless we wanted to.

Well, Liv wasted no time. I mean the gal was on the ball! I received an email from her saying she had ordered my box and it would be there in a few days. I was giddy to say the least to wonder what I was receiving. In the same sense, I was in terror as I wanted to make her box perfect! I sort of failed. Yes, I did!
The deadline for sending approached and passed after I realized when I was supposed to have sent something. Ahhhhhhhhh......I made it up to her though. Instead of one box, she got a box and a gift card too! :) She loved what I sent her, which I will not tell because she is supposed to write about it.

So, what did she send me? Well, this....

I like Bath & Body a lot but often will not get stuff for me. She sent me this whole thing. The candle makes my whole apartment smell wonderful! She did not know but the Japanese Cherry Blossom lotion is my favorite!

The experience was great and I would do it again for sure. We are no longer swap box virgins! LOL
Thanks Liv and Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Bath and body works has the best candles!

  2. Thank you for participating in the box swap! I'm so glad to hear you had an enjoyable experience! Japanese Cherry Blossom is my favorite scent, too! Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. What a nice thing to do. Sounds like fun, and what neat things she sent you. Happy Valentines Day to you and the Hubby. I hope it was a nice one. We stayed home made a pizza from Walmart with ice cream after (in celebration of Valentines of course hehe), and he got me one red rose that lights up when you push it and some new flowers for my vase on the table. I don't like real ones cuz they die (well once in a great while is not bad), but I like these better from the dollar store. They're beautiful!!! And it's the thought that counts right? :)

  4. Love bath and body works and its even better when you get it and you didnt have to buy it.

  5. This is a great time of year to be surprised with a package in the mail. I'm glad your swap went so well for you in the end! Liv made a great choice!
