Cara Box: August!

Happy Wednesday, friends! I am still adjusting to this new schedule/house/life, so things might be a little inconsistent around the blog for a few days. But I promised to show you my Cara Box today, so that's what I am going to do!

Not familiar with Cara Box? Basically it's a blogger (and non-blogger) exchange that gives you the opportunity to make friends and get presents! This link will explain it a little better.

This month I was paired up with Kara, who I sent a box to, and Jameson, who sent me a (super awesome) box! I loved getting to know both of these ladies. Kara and I had a lot in common, and she was so sweet. I really enjoyed picking out some fun things for her, and I even got my craft on a couple times! Go check out her box here.

Jameson was also wonderful.  She has such a joyful attitude and I loved getting to know her this month. She filled my package with so much fun stuff- definitely one of my favorite Cara Boxes to date!

She sent me:
  • A tiny calendar from Italy because I told her I like to travel
  • A cute little notebook that it PERFECT for in my car- I'm always needing to make notes and grocery lists!
  • Some very fun nail polish
  • A cute little tin with bobby pins in it- I LOVE THIS! It is so perfect, my mom even asked if she could have it!
  • Wine glasses
  • A crystal growing kit that looks so neat! Can't wait to try it out :)
  • little things that make your wine bottle tilt up
  • Some super cute coasters
  • NOT PICTURED- a bath bomb that smells SO good!
She also sent me a birthday car in addition to her letter (too darn sweet), and she packed it all in that super cute box which is perfect to store all my knick knacks in.

And wanna know the most exciting part? She said she forgot to put in something, so I get another surprise :) My first mail at my new house!

Okay, let's back track to those wine glasses.

Jameson made me an adorable set of glitter wine glasses! I was so excited when I opened them up, and I thought it was so cute that she matched the polishes to the glasses. My mom and I had a couple glasses of wine after the move, but the blue and green glasses haven't been used yet! So, who wants to come over for a girl's night? :)

My August Cara Box experience was so fun, and I can't wait for next time!

Now you want a package in the mail, right? Well good news! I want to invite you to join Influenster! Influenster is an interactive service that sends you free items in the mail to test and review! So far I've gotten a few boxes, but some of my favorite items were the Sally Hansen Nail Effects (love them!), a full-sized bottle of bath and body works body spray, delicious snacks, the Olay Fresh Effects system, and sea salt spray for my hair! (That last item I didn't end up enjoying, but at least I found out for free- I'd been wanting some for ages!)

It's fun, and completely free (my favorite), but the only bummer is that it's invite only. However, I have five invites to send out, so the first five people who comment or email me their email address will get an invite from me! :)

Don't you want a box of goodies?
