It’s the Great Fall Box Swap Sign Up, Bloggers! #SPBoxSwap

It’s Fall Y’all!!

Fall box swapAnd it’s been too long since our last seasonal box swap. Heck, it’s been too long since my last real post. My life has been a bag of jelly beans- all mixed up, colorful, with a few yucky flavors, but nonetheless full. I plan on sharing it all, but honestly I haven’t had time to sit still and let it out. Along with that: the world, people, the world! Things have been crazy, right? What the world needs now is love sweet love… happy mail works too. 🙂 Or at least that’s our hope, to bring some smiles, happiness and possibly new friendships into this world.

We missed summer, but we’re ready to welcome in FALL!!

It's already the 20th day of APRIL!! This means it's the perfect time for a Currently post and an UNBOXING. :)

Currently {April 2017}

Hey, hey, it’s already 4-20-2017! I figured this was the best time to go ahead and share what I’ve been up to currently.

{Flashback: Currently April 2016}

Currently April.

Currently….

Wondering

If I can use these books as inspiration for my swap box partner’s #SPBoxSwap box. 🙂 I am partnered up with Carly-Ann and I’m super excited to pull together a fun box to send to her. 🙂

Watching

Too much BRAVO. 😀

Apparently I was behind on the Housewives, so I’m getting all caught up.

via GIPHY

Also, Once Upon a Time. I’m a few seasons behind.

VEEP IS BACK!!

Wanting

More time to create. I’ve been having so much fun painting.

Currently wanting do more art.

And claying? 🙂

Currently April Fun with Clay

Wishing

Currently wishing that you would check out this month’s posts. 🙂

I shared Two Truths and a Lie Part 1 and Part 2 (The Whole Truth).

I’ve been busy over on my other blog with Phyllis: Living a Positive Lifestyle. You may want to check out some of the posts I’ve posted over there, too. 🙂

5 Ways to Embrace Spring

5 Ways to Start Your Day Off with Positivity 

 

Working

On me! That’s right, this lady needs all the work. I’ve been really trying to stick to being more positive, which means self-care, gratitude and trying oh so hard to filter out the negative. Seriously, it’s hard to filter out the negative.

 

via GIPHY

Along with trying to keep things positive, I’ve been doing pretty good at keeping up with my kettlebell workouts. I could use some more work on organization and I need to work on my ETSY SHOP. I’ve been a slacker there and on my shop’s Instagram account. I’m always a work in progress. 😉

But you know what’s not work? Happy Mail. 🙂 I was so happy to receive this complimentary Charm VoxBox from Influenster.

Charm Voxbox

Currently loving this Charm Voxbox

 


Here’s what was inside my box of FREE goodies:

I currently do not own perfume, so these samples were perfect, because they gave me an opportunity to explore if Vera Wang was for me. Influenster sent me Embrace Marigold and Gardenia and Embrace Rose Buds and Vanilla. I love all things vanilla ( 😀 TWHS ), so I thought naturally I’d gravitate to the Rose Buds & Vanilla, but actually, I think I like Marigold and Gardenia more. With the name Embrace Marigold and Gardenia you may think it smells like straight up flowers, but really it doesn’t. It’s light with a sweet musk, I love it.

The Wet N’ Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel Nail Polish {Periwinkle} was the perfect shade to match this beauty….

THE UNICORN FRAPPUCCINO

Currently April

I’m going to let you in on a little secret, and this big because I’m a Starbucks shareholder, but I think we like the nail polish better. My daughter’s nails look so pretty and shiny;  she is totally happy with the polish. The drink, it’s good, but it’s a little too much for me. PLUS, there’s no coffee! However, it’s awfully gorgeous. 🙂

Okay, Ifluenster won me over with EVA NYC! I’ve never tried this brand before, but I’m in! I loved both the shampoo and hair mask. I do NOT wash my hair every day, I have crazy curly hair it, that’s just not good for it.  The Clean It Up Shampoo gives a GOOOOOD clean to my hair and the mask helps to moisturize. I’m loving my curls right now. 🙂

Can you go wrong with Natural NO SUGAR ADDED Mott’s? My son’s answer: NO! He gobbled that pouch up before practice. 🙂

Sending ME taco mix is kind of funny. 🙂 No? I appreciated that the mix was organic. I used the mix this week, TACO TUESDAY! The tacos were a hit, but they always are. I can’t tell you it was solely the mix, because I always add my own flair, but I’m sure the taco mix helped. 😉

These PEEPS Delights were a hit! I didn’t have any, but I hear they were yummy. 🙂

 

Are you a part of Influenster? If not click my link and sign up, because who doesn’t love {free} happy mail? 🙂

What are you up to Currently?
