I haven’t participated in a blog swap in awhile and I was so excited to sign up for Elizabeth and Courtney’s Mother’s Day Exchange! I sent a gift to Andrea and I received from Erica – who does not have a blog. Funny story – at first I thought I was sending and receiving from the same person, so I asked Erica for information in order to send her a gift. Luckily I realized that I was not supposed to send one to her, because otherwise Andrea would not have received from anyone! Erica’s gift arrived when I returned from my trip and I was excited to open it and see what was inside!
Erica sent me things that I likely would have bought for myself – which is awesome! Inside a cute flowered tote bag was a matching stationery set, a candle, a heart note pad, a cute pack of note cards, and a coloring book – I’ve been wanting to try one of those!
Thank you Erica for the gift!
Speaking of Mother’s Day, I kind of sort of bought myself a present! Dave and I aren’t very big gift givers and tend to just buy ourselves the things we want when we want them (without going overboard of course). For awhile I had been wanting new earrings because the ones I wear most all the time were kind of boring me after I’ve worn them every day for 11 years! Larger diamond earrings proved to be too expensive, so I decided I would buy myself a nice pair from Pandora. I chose these!
And to go with them, I got a new charm for my bracelet:
Speaking of buying myself presents, I also ordered this:
To be honest, I’m supposed to be saving up for a new camera, which is still number one on my wish list!
But I also really like these bracelets!
One thing that I want isn’t available until August, and that is the Kerry Washington OPI Collection!
Since my wish list is basically all fashion inspired, one other thing that I want is to try out Stitch Fix.
You get a personal stylist who picks out clothing items for you and you get to try them on and decide whether to keep them. You pay a styling fee, but that fee is applied to your purchased clothing. The only reason I haven’t done this yet is that the clothing items are all more expensive than I usually like to pay!
What are you wishing for this Mother’s Day?
