Cara Box Reveal [April]

This is my second month participating in the Cara Box Exchange [my first experience didn't go so well] and I absolutely loved it! If you haven't heard of this lovely little swap, Kaitlyn over at Wifessionals organizes it every month with a different theme and 2 partners to swap with. It's a great way to make new bloggy friends and get awesome, thoughtful gifts in the mail. Who doesn't love that?! If you haven't participated- you MUST! It's fantabulous!

This month's theme for April was "Go Green"
I was partnered with two very lovely ladies that I had a lot in common with!
 I sent a box over to Holly at The Oklahoma Pepplers and she is a divine woman who is doing her very own DIY projects in her backyard with her hubby and 2 dogs.
I received a package from a fellow Army wife- the very chic Samantha over at Hooah and Hiccups!

Okay, this crazy lady has to have psychic powers because it was like she read my mind!
She sent me everything I currently need in colors I adore.
Good job, girlfran!
Oh the suspense of what is inside....

I thought it was very clever [and eco-friendly] to use a recycled, reusable bag instead of tissue paper.
And to top it off- inside that was another bag that held everything!
Clever girl.
So the two bags ended up being gifts as well!
 A reuasble bag, and a cute hot pink lunch tote :)

LOVED everything!

All natural strawberry lip balm
[Which is awesome because I am a chapstick addict and I am on my last one!]

Makeup brushes made from recycled materials
[I was just looking at mine the other day thinking they were old and I needed new ones]

Mini Nail Files
[I chipped my nail the other day and was looking for one like cuh-ray-zee! 
Now I can carry them in my purse!]

Nail polish and a Compact Mirror
[In my 2 fav colors!]

A journal to minimize unnecessary paper messes
[I'm the kinda person who has to write notes and make lists- so this is perfect!]

So thank you Samantha for picking apart my brain and sending me everything I needed to save me a Target trip haha
Love ya, girl!
