Cara Box Reveal

Last month I signed up to participate in the Cara Box swap. Set up by Kaitlyn over at Wifessionals. I thought this would be a fab idea to meet some other bloggers as my blog is relatively new. A Cara Box is almost like a pen pal but with the added bonus of a pressie in the post (and who doesn't love a parcel). Once you've signed up Kaitlyn pairs you up. You have to create a box for someone and someone else has to put together a box for you based around the general theme. This month it was New Years Resolutions.

There were 3 of us taking part from the UK. I had to put a box together for the lovely Rebecca who blogs at Puddle of Grace and the equally as lovely Sarah who blogs at Life in a Breakdown had to put together a box for me! After emailing each other back and forth for a few weeks my box arrived! How exciting! It was like Christmas all over again. And so beautifully wrapped.

Now I will be honest here, the picture that I took of the wrapped contents is rubbish because quite frankly I got abit over excited and couldn't wait to unwrap it all! But it was honestly so lovely. All in coloured crepe paper with cute little notes stating what each parcel was for.

The three resolutions that Sarah went with were:
  • Drink more water
  • Create lovely memories for Ava
  • Get a little more creative & crafty
 First up in my box was this lovely photo album to store some of the many photos that I have of Ava. I was actually in dire need of another photo album so this was fab!

Secondly I received this gorgeous glass! It has imprinted on it "Drink water...pretend it's champagne" which really made me smile. This was such a thoughtful gift as I really do hate drinking water but I don't think it will ever be as bad drinking it from my fancy glass.

And thirdly  I received this amazing set of nail varnishes and nail art tools. I have always wanted to try these out but I have about as much creativity as a potato! I've tried out a couple of the nail shades already and I love them. I can't wait to start experimenting with it.

So there we have it! What a lovely lovely box! I can't thank Sarah enough. She is so lovely, as is Rebecca and I am so glad that I took part and got to know these ladies.

If you are interested in taking part follow Kaitlyn and keep an eye out for the next Cara box post!

Yay so glad you liked it all :) I was the same opening mine just wanted to rip it all open hehe.

I was so worried I had spelled champagne wrong after I ordered it - I was sat thinking I hope if I have they just change it for me lol.

So glad I got to know you and Beccie <3 xx
