It’s a Happy Mail Fiesta!!

It’s a Happy Mail Fiesta! Sadly, there will be no margaritas. But we will have happy mail, coffee, candy, and other fun goodies. I know one thing that will definitely be at this party, good company. I’m hosting this fiesta with my dear friend and fellow happy mail lover, Ashely of Happy Pretty Sweet. Ashley and I are coming up on one year of hosting our seasonal blogger box swap!! We started this swap last summer and I have to admit it’s been tons of fun. ANNNND the last two swaps were international (U.S and Canada). 🙂

#SPBoxSwap SPRING Blogger-to-blogger box swap

I was partnered-up with Carly-Ann. 🙂 She writes about her life’s happenings over on her blog TDTFYH (The Day to Follow Your Heart). It’s been enjoyable getting to know more about Carly-Ann through her blog and her Instagram. I also got to find out a few things about Carly-Ann via good o’email. My intent was to send things based on what I learned about her. I hope I did a good job. 🙂

Fun fact: This was my first time having an international swap partner. 🙂 Getting my box to Carly-Ann was an event, as it was for her to get hers to me. Although, I think maybe, just maybe, the Canadian post may have their process a little more put together than ours here in the U.S. Yup, I said it. Anyway, when Carly-Ann’s box showed up I was super excited. SHE. DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT. 

You can already tell that this box was packaged with warmth and kindness, right? Me too. 🙂 Are you ready to check out my goodies?

Of course you are!!


My goodies:

  • Starbucks Vancouver Mug “You are here collection
  • I <3 Van Coasters
  • Starbucks Canada Gift Card
  • Orange Zest Essential Oil Candles
  • {Magical} Saje Peppermint Halo
  • Cute Bunny Ring Holder
  • Coffee Crisp
  • Kleenex


I REALLY LOVE COFFEE. My affinity for coffee gave Carly-Ann some yummy inspiration. 🙂 She totally spoiled me with coffee goodies. Let’s start off with my new Vancouver mug!! I’ve been eyeing-up the Seattle one at my local Starbucks. When I was opening up the box at first I thought it was the Seattle mug, but I quickly realized even cooler it’s VANCOUVER! I haven’t visited Canada yet, this will certainly serve as daily inspiration to finally go. It’s not like Canada is too far from me, I’m only about 2 hours away from Vancouver. 🙂 Cool, huh?

The coasters will come in handy, because kids, amiright? You can never go wrong with a Starbucks gift card, I’ve said that countless times, but I know for sure I’ve said it here. The Coffee Crisp are new to me, they’re a Canadian chocolate bar made with wafer, chocolate, and of course coffee flavoring. Turns out you can find these in the U.S, but they’re not readily available everywhere. However, you know good o’Amazon has your back.

Oh Happy Mail!

The little bunny ring holder is TOO cute!  What better represents spring than a bunny? Oh and Kleenex totally screams spring to me, because kiddos with allergies.  I’m totally IN LOVE with Saje Peppermint Halo Headache Remedy roll on ( <-this is not an affiliate link, this is a get-yourself-some-of-this-magic link, because this stuff is the you know what!) I joked to my kids saying Carly-Ann sent it to me because I have kids. 😀 Carly-Ann wrote in her sweet letter explaining all my gifts that this blend is also good for any kind of pain and clarity. I couldn’t agree more, Carly-Ann! I’ve been using it like I’m going to lose it. Love it. I totally believe in the power of peppermint and lavender (wrote about that here)… and rosemary too! I haven’t used the candles yet, but the already smell heavenly. 🙂



You sincerely blew me away with your sweet and thoughtful box. I love everything including the darling card and handwritten letter. I can’t believe I forgot to take a picture of the card!! Anyway, you made me so happy. Happy Mail, indeed. (Also, I thought it was funny that you and I had a few somewhat similar items for each other.) You can see what I sent Carly-Ann here.

  1. You got some great items! I really want to visit Canada someday – I mean my grandma is from there, and I’ve never been!!!

    It looks like Carly did a great job. Yay! I love getting treats from other countries. 🙂


  2. Ooooooh a Mail fiesta, I likie I likie. 🙂 This international box swap is so exciting Dean, my heart is racing a little. I love that Starbuck Vancouver Mug 🙂 and that bunny ring holder.

  3. Dean! I’m so glad you enjoyed everything! 😀 It was so much fun to put your package together and such great anticipation waiting for yours to arrive (just in the nick of time!) And if you ever feel like adventuring north, you let me know! <3

    1. Enjoyed almost sounds like an understatement, I’m so in love with it all. Thank you again for everything! I’m so glad you joined us, I hope you’ll be back for the summer.

  4. Awwww, such a great swap <3 I love the mug, too! And it looks like it's a bit on the bigger size, which is how I like my mugs 🙂

    And the coffee treats! SO many lovely goodies. And I agree, our US postal service sometimes is a lot sucky 🙂 ha!

    1. I like big mugs and I cannot lie. 🙂

      The US postal service can be 50 shades of sucky sometimes. If you only knew what I had to deal with to send a package overnight to my friend’s baby shower.

  5. Hey there! I hope I didn’t miss the sign up for the Summer box swap. Wanted to see if it is still a go and make sure I’m on the list! I’m ready! I’ve been picking out summer related things all summer!
