It’s time for the Galentine’s Box Swap Reveal #SPBoxSwap

Box Swap If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or you’ve read the last eh… hem… five posts I’ve written, you have certainly heard me mention the Winter Box Swap Galentine’s edition. But in the event you missed me talking about it, here’s the original post about what Galentine’s is and why we decided to go with this theme this winter. Each season my lovely partner in happy mail Ashley (Happy.Pretty.Sweet) and I host a box swap for bloggers to connect via good old snail mail. It’s a great way to connect and bring joy to a fellow blogger. We love it. We started our swaps this Summer and we’re extremely excited to see that things are growing! With this growth it means more mail, more happiness, and maybe a little change (maybe).  But enough about that, let’s get to the reveal!

I was partnered with Chantale, a lifestyle blogger. 🙂  Chantale’s blog is all about self discovery, love of books, and happiness. You know I can totally get down with that, because HELLO, work in progress over here. I appreciate that not only does she challenge herself, she challenges her readers too. I’m currently guzzling down water to keep up with the water challenge. 🙂 And who doesn’t love a good book list? If you’re looking for book reviews or want to help add to her list head on over to Iridescent Rebel.  I think I kind of ran with a self care/positive energy theme with her box, you can check that out here. But before you go check out what I sent, take a look at the goodies I received.

My goodies, my goodies, here’s my #SPBoxSwapGoodies…

(Who remembers old school Ciara?) 

It's time, it's time!! The Galentine's #SPBoxSwap Reveal

My goodies:

♡  Haribo Gummy Bears

♡  Planner book

♡  Valentine’s Stickers, or should I say Galentine’s? 😉

♡  The cutest gummy bear notebook

♡  Post-it sticky notes

♡  Paper Mate Ink Joy Pens

♡ Pen pouch

It's time for the #SPBoxSwap {Galentine's} Box Swap Reveals!!

I’m quite sure I did not state how much I love gummy bears on my questionnaire (everyone fills one out to help their partners), but somehow Chantale knew I love gummy bears. AND to top it off the gummy bears were SOUR 😍 . Anyone else out there love gummy/sour candies as much as I do? I’ll admit it, I steal the kids’ fruit snacks from time-to-time, because close enough. 😀

You know what else I didn’t tell my intuitive partner? I did NOT tell her or… shall I say I’ve never admitted to anyone that I have a healthy obsession with Word Streak with Friends. Word Streak formerly “Scramble” is a word game that I’m addicted to, I enjoy beating my family. The Word Scramble activity book is totally appreciated. Plus, I’m trying to keep my mind sharp. Yes, I’m already worrying about my memory. Anyone else?

Gummy bears and pens! Yes, please! The Galentine's Box Swap Reveals are live. :)

My notebook mantra: YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY. I’ve already put this cutie to use. 🙂 Paper Mate InkJoy is one of my favorite pen brands. Sharpies and Paper Mate all day everrryday. 🙂

Got some drawing in today and it felt good. I’m thinking of adding some more drawings to the shop. Thoughts?

I’m glad I have an extra place to store some of my pens, because it’s getting a little out of control over here, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Thank you so much for all my goodies, Chantale!!!

Don’t forget to check out what I sent. 🙂

  1. Awesome.
    For Valentine’s Day, Scarlet made me buy a bunch of bags of gummy bears, just to take out all the red and green ones for Cassidy. Also, there are Gummy Bear leggings out there!!

    1. I would’ve happily taken all the red ones for you. 🙂 Red is my favorite, I usually just pick through for reds, and that goes the same for Sour Patch kids and Starburst (when I get them). Starburst made a red pack! When I’m feeling sneaky I grab a pack… FOR MYSELF. (That was said in an evil villain voice, because I hardly get candy to myself.. kids.)
      Speaking of evil villain, do you watch Once? I thought I remembered you saying you did, if so I’m finally on the bandwagon and I’m loving it. We (my girls and I) are on season 3.

      oh and I must find these leggings. 🙂

      1. For mostly everything, red is my favorite! I gave Scarlet the Starburst Reds for Valentine’s Day and got myself a secret box!! (what a treat)
        In Skittles, I only like the red.
        With Haribo gummy bears, I like red AND green, but probably because green is based on a “red flavor.” They’re tricky!
        As for Once Upon a Time, I’ve always watched it but it’s gotten worse in the newest season. I miss it when it was still good!

    1. Thank you so much for joining us, Chantale! I’m so glad you participated and you and I were partnered up. Those gummy bears had zero chance of surviving in this house. 😀 They were gone ASAP… my kids got into them.. {insert side eye here} It’s okay I had already taken out most of the reds. 🙂
      Thanks again for everything!

  2. YAY! I love everything she sent you! Especially that notebook! Man, those gummy bears would have lasted about 5 minutes in my hands! Thank you, as always, for the opportunity to do an amazing swap!

  3. You got a great box! I love the gummy bear notebook and I don’t think anyone can every have too many colorful pens. This was a another great swap. I’m looking forward to the Spring box swap. 🙂

  4. Awwww, so cute! Love the gummy bear notebook 🙂 My mom always tells me that was her pregnancy craving when she had me. So random, eh?

    I always love to see what you girls are swapping — hope you have a fabulous weekend, my sweet! XOXO

  5. I’m a bit obsessed with sour gummy candies. They are by far my favorite, and I’ve had to wean myself off of them. True story: we went away for the weekend a couple weeks ago and Eve asked for a bug of sour gummy candies. We let her have a few and then put the bag away (because she already has enough energy without being amped up on sugar), and then the next time my friends and I (and mostly I) finished them off. Two days later Eve was telling someone about the candies and told the person that we forgot them at the house. :-O
    What a fun box swap, love that gummy notebook!

    1. OH NO, we’re not getting rid of the swaps!! We just have to make changes to the way we work them, to make things work more smoothly on the other side of things ( meaning for Ashley and I). 🙂 We just hope y’all will be okay with our update.
      We are SO EXCITED that the swap is growing, this was the biggest swap with over 20 swappers.
