Favorite Things Blogger Exchange.

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

A couple weeks ago, Jessica and Sarah had posted about having a favorite things blogger exchange. The idea was simple : I pick a favorite thing(s) of mine ($10 or less) and purchase two of them. Then Sarah and Jessica would pair me with two different bloggers and I would send my favorite thing(s) to them. In turn, two bloggers would send me their favorite thing(s). Sounded like fun to me! I love sharing my favorite things with others, so I signed up.

Technically tomorrow is reveal day, but I have something else planned for tomorrow so you get to see mine early!

I was paired with Jessica from Secrets of a Stay at Home Mom (one of the hosts!) and Sara from Crazy Cozads. These are my favorite things that I sent to my partners.




I sent my partners : some EOS chapstick, some Trident gum, some Justin's peanut butter cups, and a make up brush.

EOS chapstick is my favorite because it comes in this little circular container. The top never falls off and the lip balm stays nice and perfect until you are ready to put it on your lips. I also love this flavor (scent?) because it's cooling and minty.

This Trident gum I was actually introduced to by Erin. She let me try a piece a couple months ago and ever since, I've been hooked. It has the BEST watermelon flavor!

I actually prefer the big Justin's peanut butter cups to the small ones because I feel like the peanut butter/chocolate ratio is better, but I couldn't find them, so these would have to do. I recently discovered them and they are my new favorite! I like to pretend they're healthy for me when I inhale them by the handful :)

And this make up brush. I recently discovered e.l.f. brushes at Target when I was shopping for my $10 at Target post and have since fallen in love. I mean, can you really go wrong with a $1 make up brush? I think not. No more expensive make up brushes for me... I've been converted!

Jessica and Sara, I hope you like my favorite things as much as I do!

My first partner match who sent me her favorite things was Dara from Not in Jersey. Here's what she sent me.


She also sent a sweet card explaining why each of these things were her favorite. She said these are her favorite make up removing towelettes, her favorite nail polish in her favorite color, and a journal because one of her favorite things to do is write. I have to admit... she hit pretty much all of my favorite things too! I love Burt's Bees and am excited to try these make up removers. I love to paint my nails and am excited to have a fun new color to try. And I, too, love writing (#blogger), so this journal will be really great to jot down my ideas in. Thank you Dara! I love them!

My second partner match who sent me her favorite things was Paige from New Momma Notes. Here's what she sent me.


Paige also sent me a sweet card explaining why these are her favorite. She said that the "Everyone Lemon and Coconut Lotion" is a recent find that she's been loving for summer since it's natural and has essential oils. I must admit that I, too, love it because it smells so good and is not sticky (my pet peeve with lotion!). She also sent me this Babyganics Hand Sanitizer. She said she keeps these everywhere and uses them all the time. And I have to admit... with a three year old, I, too, use hand sanitizer or wipes ALL THE TIME and carry both with me everywhere. I'm excited to try this brand of hand sanitizer too! Thank you Paige! I love them!


A huge thank you to Sarah and Jessica for organizing this exchange! It was a lot of fun!

  19. Love what you sent your swap partners! I need to try those chocolates. They sound delicious! And I love what Dara sent you. You can never have too many notebooks or nail polish. The items that Paige sent you are things I have never tried before. I think I would love the scent of that lotion! So fun!
