August Cara Box Reveal: Seasons of Life

August 28, 2013


I had so much fun this month participating in the Cara Box Gift Exchange started by Kaitlyn @ Wifessionals.  For the month of August we were paired with bloggers based on age/stage of life.  (Stage of life=single vs. married, kids/no kids.)

Last month I was paired with Suree who blogs over at Tucker Joy, and she bought for me.  This month, it was my turn to send her a gift.  It was nice to be partners with Suree again and I enjoyed getting to know her even more.  She really is a sweetheart!  To see what I got Suree, click here.

I also had the pleasure of meeting Jasmine who is a funny MBA student from Chicago.  It was fun being paired with her because she blogs mostly about beauty related topics, and that is also an interest of mine! Check out her blog, Green Eyed Monster, for some great beauty tips and for some book reviews.

The reveal:



Jasmine knew that I am not allowed to wear nail polish at work, so she got me some cuticle cream and other tools to help my nails look great without polish.  What a thoughtful gift!


She also added some Naughty Nautical polish for when I can sneak some on or for my toes. :)  This was an item that I had posted on my Summer Beauty Wishlist.


She put in a candle to "help light" my way since I recently graduated with my Master's in Education.  I'm onto a new stage in my life since I am no longer a student and will be subbing and eventually looking for a full time teaching position.


This cute little magnet was also included.  It is handmade from Chicago, where Jasmine lives.  


Jasmine recently started making some changes towards leading a healthier lifestyle, and so have I, so she included this recipe for Baked Tilapia.  I cannot wait to try it out...I never have good ideas for recipes, so I was thankful that she included this.


Finally, she put in some locally made soap from Evanston, Illinois.  I love homemade items!


Like last month, I was lucky to be paired with two amazing gals!  I hope this trend continues next month when we will be partnered with someone from the state we live in, exciting!!

    2. I feel like we have all the same Essie colors! I'm wearing naughty nautical on my toes right now! I actually hated the color the first I used it, it looked way more green than I expected! I gave it a second chance and I am glad I did! I really liked it the second time around! Your box looks like it contained all kinds of thoughtful goodies :)
