a fun blogger swap!

In late March, I decided to take part in a blogger swap hosted by Lin of Linny's Vault. I've seen so many blogger take part in something similar so I decided to try our for myself. This one seemed easy enough - select a few of my favorite things within the $15 budget and send them to the blogger I was paired with. But once I decided what I wanted to send to my partner Kristin of Kristin's kNook, I realized that $15 didn't allow me much wiggle room to get the things on my list. I was happy with what I picked for Kristin {I hope she was too!} and I most certainly loved what I got!

{Look at that adorable packaging! Happy with this already!}

{Starburst Crazy Beans Jelly Beans, Carmex chapstick, Target scarf, pink & yellow notepads, pens in fun colors}

I love chapstick but have never tried Carmex so I'm excited about this. The Target scarf is light and gauzy, perfect for the unusually warm April weather! The notepads and the pens are so fun. And those Starburst jelly beans? I've never had or seen them before, but I love them! No, really. I opened up the bag to try a few and these have found their way onto my list of favorite candies. If you haven't tried these, I suggest finding yourself a bag ASAP. They are that good.

Kristin, thank you so, so, so much for everything you sent! I'm so happy with everything you sent!


  1. Holy cow she managed to get you lots for the budget! Good work, Kristin!

  2. I totally love this idea! How awesome!!! A fun bag of treat.


  3. I love this! I also did Linsey's swap and am so excited for my partner to receive her package!

  4. Look at all that awesome stuff, wow! I love Starburst jelly beans too. I actually have to hide them from the hubs if we buy a bag because he'll inhale them in a few hours.

    Scarfs aren't usually my thing but I'm definitely diggin' the colors on that one. Totally cute. Thanks again for participating, I'm so glad you had fun! Hope to see you around for the next one in July :)
