just add color fall swap!

I'm fairly new to the blogging world.
because of that i am always up for suggestions on new blogs to check out, and am happily delighted when i end up loving the ones people recommend.

So maybe a month ago, i forget whose blog i was on but they suggested checking out

..so i did :)

anddd just my luck they were co hosting a blog swap:

i've been seeing swaps all over blogs i follow so this was the perfect one for me to get into swapping because it had a bunch of my favorite things:: scarves, nail polish & new friends!

My swap partner was Gina from desperately seeking { gina }

I'm thrilled to have gotten paired up with her, and feel like I have made a new friend, recipe source, and someone who encourages me when i say i want to pack up and move somewhere completely out of my comfort zone...like oh say, arkansas (where she currently lives) : Hi gina!!

I was soo excited to get my package and couldn't wait to see the treasures she had picked for me, i felt like it was my birthday and i was getting a surprise (obviously I'm still a little kid, really)
Here are my new treasures:

My box was filled with tons of goodies, and was an extra surprise for me

The scarf color is fantastic on me, it complements my skin tone, is a total pop of color AND super snuggly-- awesome choice gina!

the nail polish is trophy wife by essie, which i ironically had made a mental note to get for myself and now im glad i didnt since gina picked it for me.

This was a great first swap experience and i'm so happy I decided to join in on it!

Thanks Jess & Ashlee for hosting it, and Gina for being an awesome partner & new friend
