The Favorite Color Swap Reveal

  Oh my gosh, you guys! I've been stalking watching the Chaotic Goddess Swaps since I started blogging. Whenever I saw that this month they were doing one based on favorite colors, I knew I had to join in! And I'm so glad I did.

  My swap partner was Beverly from Booklady's Booknotes. I chose teal/seafoam/mint green (because who can pick just one shade?), and she chose pink! I had a lot of fun learning about Beverly and hunting down pink things for her!

  I didn't get to take any cool pictures of the box or opening it. Sadface. The mail lady met me at the door and had already stamped "Delivered Damaged" all over the box. Beverly had included a set of mugs and painted wine glasses. USPS was not kind to the package. They ignored the fragile warnings on the box. All four items were broken and shattered. Because Beverly is awesome, she's filing an insurance claim with USPS and sending replacements. She's awesome, I know!

Dove Dark Chocolate and Mint. I'm not a fan of chocolate. But I'm addicted to Andes Mints. Beverly must have read my mind because the chocolate she sent tastes exactly like an Andes mint! I devoured these. No shame.

Nail Polish. I love nail polish. I have crazy strong and resilient natural nails, so I'm always painting them. I loved both of these colors. I'm wearing one as I type this!

Sand and Sea Candle. Who doesn't love candles, yeah? This one smells so good. I've stashed it for one of my candles and incenses moments that will roll around soon!

Finn Finnegan by Darby Karchut book. I was so excited to see this book in the package. It's more middle grade, but I'm sure I'll love it.

Cake Plate. You guys. I know you can't see it well, but the cake plate. Beverly used a candle stick and a plate to make the most adorable cake plate. I'm already making big plans for it for the wedding. :)

  Beverly also included a very sweet card! I loved doing this swap and getting to know Beverly! Thank you so much for my wonderful gifts! I can't wait to join in for the next swap. :)


  1. Oh that is such an amazing collection of goodies, it's too bad the mugs and wine glasses got damaged. Hopefully the post office will take care of the damage and you can get some new ones. Where did you sign up for the swap? I've heard a lot about people doing them but have no idea where to go to sign up :D

    1. is the host of this one. We have different ones every month! :)

    2. What Beth said! Next month it's a book themed swap, so you should definitely join. :)

  2. YAY! Beverly is an awesome swapper, and I'm so glad she filed insurance with USPS (who are bastards for the amount of swap packages they've busted and lost over the past two years).
    I love that cake plate (what I can see of the rear of it looks scalloped and pretty), and Sinful Colors (is that Mint Apple?) is awesome. YAY!

    1. I was SO frustrated! The mail lady was extremely apologetic, though. So there's that.

      I loooove the cake plate. I put it on our bar with the chocolate on it, but the chocolate didn't last long. ;) And yes, mint apple! It's the color I have on. It's my new favorite. :)

  3. Sad to hear about your mugs, but I'm really glad that she's so awesome, and all of that other stuff is wonderful! :D
