pampered swap!

The time has finally come. I got my Pampered Swap gift in the mail yesterday (after having a very teary breakdown. It happens.)! It was exactly what I needed to get through the day. It was just like Christmas.
I was lucky enough to receive a package from Micaela of Dolce Vita. She did a spectacular job of putting together every little detail of my package. She. Is. The. Best.
the loot.
Luxurious hand cream, a chocolate mask, exfoliating scrub, chocolate coconut lip balm, Burts Bees soap, a gorgeous bracelet, fantastic red nail polish, Milano cookies, a homemade red doily, a fantastic mix CD and a cupcake card?

I'm a spoiled, spoiled girl.
The mix CD included some of Micaela's favorite songs, which happen to be some of my favorite songs too.
I want to thank the lovely April for hosting this swap, and Micaela for my lovely gift. I think this was a great way to get to know some new bloggers and to get some snail mail. Fact: I love snail mail. I think it's fun. It's creative. And my oh my is it exciting.

Anyone want to be snail mail pals? Let me know. We'll chat. We can buy each other fun things and send each other sweet letters.


  1. aw getting your sweet email made my day! i'm glad everything made it to you safely. i had SO MUCH fun putting a little swap package for you (they are my fave!) and am thrilled/blushing with this post ;)

    is there anything better than happy mail, esp. when having a bad day? so glad i was there for you ;)

    (btw, i love how you take photos!)

    i can't wait to blog about april's awesome swap and link to you :)


  2. Hey, actually, I would LOVE to be snail mail pals! I love writing real letters. Let me know if you want to!

  3. Wow, she sent you some really great and thoughtful stuff! It doesn't get much better than receiving stuff in the mail :)

  4. Yay! I knew Micaela would treat you right. :) She's the best.

  5. Oh my gosh amazing. Receiving stuff via snail mail is great!

  6. I would love to Snail Mail with you! I love that kind of stuff and already am snail mail pals with some of my High School friends! Let me know if you want to! (Hope you remember me haha we went to UHa together :p)

  7. NICE SHIRT! HA!! :P

    And this is the sweetest damn little package EVER! I WANT ONE!

    In theory, I would LOVE to snail mail with you. But I can hardly keep up with my emails, which is infinitely easier then snail-mailing. *sigh.*

  8. I will be your snail mail pal any day darling!

  9. Micaela is always the BEST when it comes to swaps! (Or mail of any kind, really. . . )
    I need to get back in the habit of sending things through the mail. I love sending and receiving packages- but I'm terrible at sending things in a timely fashion! :(

  10. Micaela is the best! I had her for a list swap and she blew my mind with her package! I love, love, love what she gave you! (And what great timing too).
