Sweet Progress Fall Box Swap

You may or may not know, but chances are you do know that I make up half of the fearsome duo of Sweet PROGRESS Box Swaps. You know that, right? Because you visit me often, right? Well, if you didn’t know that we need to chat more often!


The other half of  Sweet Progress Box Swap is Ashley from Happy Pretty SWEET. Ashley is such a dear, I adore her! I’m happy to partner with her to spread blogger mailbox love every season. 🙂 And this season… this wonderful season we’re celebrating…

I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in LOVE WITH FALL AND I don’t care who knows it!!

But you know who knows it, Erika. Erika of Cat Eyes and Skinny Jeans, who has never ever met me in real life, she gets it. She knows my love for fall is deep and you know what she did, she showered me with fall mail. LIKE INSANELY AWESOME FALL MAIL!! But before I start gushing over how awesome my fall box is, let me tell you a little bit about Erika and her super cool blog. When I visit Erika’s blog I’m instantly inspired by her fashion and her impeccable nail polish skills!! I want to one day achieve fashion and good nails like Erika. Seriously, you have to check out her beautiful nails. Besides being super stylish, she’s super sweet, loves cats, and HAPPY MAIL!

My Sweet Progress Fall Box Reveal

So what did Erika send me….

Is the suspense killing you? Because my girls couldn’t take it, I was snapping pictures of the process and they were right next to me waiting impatiently to see what was in this superbly packaged box. Also, Erika left me a sweet note on each package explaining why she sent the corresponding item. So sweet.

Isn’t this box AWESOME!?!

Okay, okay, here’s what was inside my fall box swap box:

♡  One Bad Apple by Sheila Connolly

♡  Forever 21 Rusty Red Infinity Scarf

♡  Forever 21 Layered Leaf Necklace Set

♡  Donut Key Chain

♡  Ciate Dangerous Affair Nail Polish

♡  And Herb the Turkey and Pumpkin Spice Lindt CHOCOLATES


How adorable are these boxes?!?

One Bad Apple seems like a deliciously suspenseful autumn thriller that pairs well with my pumpkin spice chocolates and a good cup of coffee. I can’t wait to dive into this read. The scarf will be worn over and over I’m sure. Because I love fall so much Erika wanted me to wear my love of fall and fall leaves all year round. I’m thinking of splitting up the leaves and giving one to each of my fall-loving baby girls. 🙂 THE DONUT KEY CHAIN… has someone visited my Instagram. 🙂  I hope I can make my nails look half as good as Erika with my luxurious new Ciate nail polish. Herb, my new turkey, is already hanging up waiting for all the turkey love that is to come this Thanksgiving season. Time to put away all the spiders and all things Halloween. Because it’s NOVEMBER!!!

  1. I am so, so glad that you loved everything, Dean! I think this was my favorite box to ever put together – I had so much fun choosing everything; and yes, I did get the doughnut idea from your Instagram!

    Counting down the seconds until the winter swap!


  2. Another great swap in the books! I love shopping for others and can sometimes get carried away, but it’s worth it. Love all the goodies I received and looking forward to the winter swap!

    1. 🙂 This was such a fun swap. I’m so happy to see everyone’s reveals.
      Your swap was awesome both what you gave and what you received. I cannot wait for the winter swap!!

  3. I love your Box Swaps Dean, and I am already looking froward to the winter box exhange. That donut key chain is adorable and that scarf is perfect for these cooler fall days.

    1. Thank you, Mary! I would love if you joined us this winter. But no pressure at all. 🙂
      I cannot wait to wear the scarf, the keychain hangs on my computer currently.

  4. Whoa. She did a really great job. Now I want a do over 😀 Wrapping the stuff was a really nice touch. I will remember that for the winter swap!

    1. Erika did such an awesome job! I was totally spoiled. The wrapping was a nice touch, I was kinda of lazy and purchased little burlap bags for my gifts. 😀

      I lost my freakin’ mind last night!! We celebrated with pie at 10:00 (pst) last night.

      I loved it all. I’m such a sucker for swaps/happy mail.

    1. Yes, she did. I love it all.
      Thanks for stopping by, my sweet friend!
      Have I told you lately I’m excited for DECEMBER?!?!?

  5. Oh, my goodness.. your box is so cute and your gifts are wrapped so beautifully <3 I actually just saw Akaleister's box, too! Love this swap you ladies participate in 🙂

    XOXO and hope you're having a great week!

    1. Erika did such a wonderful job of making me feel all the fall feels. 🙂
      I’m loving our box swaps too. It’s so nice to connect other bloggers and HAPPY MAIL!!
      Wishing you a lovely week too, my dear friend!

  6. This is the first that I have heard of a box swap, but then again, I am a business blogger. It seems too risky for me since I am so particular but I am happy to hear that you (and others) love it.

  7. What a cute box. I love all the goodies included as well. It’s a great collection of everything you need for fall. I think my favorite items are the turkey, necklace and ciate polish.

  8. I love seeing what these boxes are! I don’t subscribe to any monthly boxes so I need to get on that trend. Its a fun surprise.

  9. That has got to be the cutest swap package I have ever seen! I love how everything is wrapped! And I didn’t even know they made pumpkin spice Lindt truffle!

  10. This reminds me of something I took part in about 10 years ago when I was part of a scrapbooking/cardmaking community. We called it “happy mail”. So fun to get goodies in the mail!

  11. Aw, I love Erika! She found some great goodies for you, and man, her packing game is on point! I love it. It was so much fun doing this swap – so thanks for helping put it together. I’ll have to try the Winter one if I can!!


  12. Oh wow, what an amazing box swap!! Erica is so beyond thoughtful!! So many cute goodies and all wrapped up so pretty! I love the little touch of adding a note explaining each item. ^^ I would love to participate in one of these some day! I love finding unique and interesting gifts for people! I do get nervous sometimes looking at these posts and worry that my packaging or presentation won’t be cute or creative enough lol. I don’t want the other person to feel gypped especially if the one they give me looks amazing! >.<

  13. I’m reading all these at once, and quite enjoying them!!
    The Lindt chocolates intrigue me. I’ve had every other of their flavors and I’m a bit obsessed. To think this exists and I didn’t know!

  14. This box swap is an awesome idea! I love that people are doing this. I think it’s a really nice way to enjoy the season and gain friends. Looks like you received a lot of goodies as well!
