    Swapper Overload!

    SO….I entered a few swaps recently.  All with completely different send and post dates.  Somehow, due to delays in the mail, the linkups all ended up on the same day!
    Crazy!  So I’ll just start with the first one I received!
    All Laquered Up Polish Swap
    I don’t really have a lot of nail polish and tend to stick with the same colors year round.  I wanted to branch out so I signed up for 2 polish swaps.  For this first one, hosted by Megan from Shine On and Angela from Hairspray and Highheels, I was paired with Katie over at Katers Potaters.
    Now when I got the package I kind of panicked….
    But as I opened it and soaked the bottles in polish remover, I realized it was like opening another whole package!
    I love the colors…nothing like I already had.  Plus a cute nail file/tweezer set!
    Thanks Katie!
    Spread The Polish
    This one was hosted by Carly from Lipgloss and Crayons and Rachel from LaLa Lists.  Ms. Heather over at Gurlee Girrl was my lovely swapper!  I hope she loved her neons!  This is what I got!
    Please notice that the card matches…Heather, you are fabulous!
    The Essie is seriously my new favorite!
    Thanks Heather!
    The Mug Swap
    This was a secret swap.  These are SO MUCH FUN!
    Who were the hosts?  The wonderful Dalayna from Pointing Up and Rachel from Yellow Umbrella!
    It is no secret that I LOVE coffee.  I need it, crave it, etc!  So I’ve been looking for a mug swap for awhile and this one found me!  
    I sent a mug to The Thriftiness Miss…..you can see it HERE.
    Mine was from the lovely Amber from One Life to Live!  She sent me this GORGEOUS gem!
    Hello!  LOVE IT!  
    Thanks Amber!
    Side note: I love how my swappers totally get me!
    And last but not least…
    The Postcard Swap
    Our two fearless leaders?  Hayley from Hayley’s World (you may remember that she was the lady I sent my Jewelry Swap to!)  and Kim from Pink, Pearls, and Polka Dots.
    My swapper was Kendra from Kendra Kay.  All the way from CALIFORNIA! This was a coast to coast swap!  She’s from southern Cali and while looking through her pics on her blog, it seems like a crazy fun place!  Since I couldn’t find a single place that sold postcards, I ordered and sent her a really pretty (at least I think it’s purdy!) vintage Atlanta card.  
    Here’s what she sent me!
    Thanks Kendra!
    Okay…That’s it!  All of them in one day!  Are you tired? I am!  These were fun but I think I’m gonna take a small break from swapping.  (That is unless there’s a really awesome one that I can’t pass up!)
    You can find all the link ups on the hosts’s pages!

    My Instagrammed Week #11

    It’s was a pretty good week I’d say.  
    Painted my toenails (first time since FEBRUARY!)
    Found something I’ve been looking for!
    First Pumpkin Spice Latte of the year for me…it was glorious!
    My mug swap mug came….and I love it!
    Tried bubble tea for the first time.  Pretty sure it’s my new favorite thing.
    Started to teach myself how to play my ukelele!  It’s on my Life List and I figured why not?!
    How was your week?

    Saw It, PINNED It, Tried It: The Sharpie Mug

    First I’d like to make the wonderful announcement that I have opened up sponsor ad space!!!!  Go check out my (super cheap) ad sizes on my SPONSOR page! 
    You can go now if you like…I’ll wait…no really go, I’ll wait….
    Wasn’t that AWESOME?! 
    Now onto the DIYing!
    Recently I joined a mug swap and I have to say that it may have been one of my favorites!  I was given Jessica over at The Thriftiness Miss.  I thought her style was clean, simple, and feminine and I decided to reflect that in her mug.  I found this super cute and dainty mug and, you know me, I had to DIY it!

    I used the tutorial over at A Beautiful Mess as my guide.

    Be sure to hand wash only to preserve the design!
    I hope she loves it!  I almost didn’t want to send it cuz I loved it so much.  However, seeing as I am not The Thriftiness Miss, I had no reason to keep it.  šŸ™‚

    Stay tuned, the reveal link up is soon and I’ll show you what I got!
    PS: you may have (or maybe not) noticed that there is no link up.  Sadly the link up was a bit of a flop so I’m forgoing it for awhile.  I may do a completely different linkup on a different day…we shall see!
