Fall Sweet Progress Swap Box Has Arrived!

November 6, 2017MommaBear

Have you ever heard of the Fall Sweet Progress Swap Box?

This year it has occurred to me that I am in love with subscription boxes! I currently participate in Ipsy Glam Bag and Birchbox, which has really shown me that I have been buying crappy makeup all my life, and good makeup makes all the difference! Also, it is such a treat to get a surprise in the mail every month.

This month I decided to join the box swap of one of my favorite sites: Happy, Pretty, Sweet. And it was just as fun as I had hoped. I loved shopping for this box, and I love receiving this box! To see what I sent my partner Carissa, check out her blog here: Green Eyed Lady Blog.

Fall Sweet Progress Swap Box

Carissa must have read my mind when she bought everything for this box, because it was full of things I absolutely love!

Fall Sweet Progress Swap Box

Here’s what was inside my Fall Sweet Progress Swap Box:

Pumpkin Pie Spice and Sour Apple Gum
Holy moly, the pumpkin pie spice gum tastes just like pumpkin pie with with whipped cream, no joke, it is my new favorite thing!

Sour Caramel Apple and Moscow Mule Gummy Bears
How did Carissa know that Moscow Mule is my drink of choice! That’s some spooky stuff…

Binder Clips
These are perfect for my new Bujo obsession! I almost bought these for Carissa!

A pumpkin notepad and pen
This is super cute, I literally opened it immediately to write a note and then my daughter stole it.

Sugar and Spice Candle
I love the smell of this candle, and it’s the perfect size for my bedroom table. It’s not too fragrant where it knocks you out, and it’s just enough to make the room smell wonderful!

Water Bottle
I wish I had a better picture of all of this stuff, but I was so excited when I got it, and my daughter was pawing at it. This water bottle says “Sip, Sparkle, Repeat” how cute is that?!

Pumpkin Bread
I’m making this for Thanksgiving. I make my own pumpkin bread, but for Thanksgiving, I like to have easy go-to’s, so I’m not making everything from scratch.

Ghiradelli Caramel Chocolates
Yeah, these chocolates lasted about two minutes in my house, they were delicious.

All in all, this was a super fun, super yummy experience! I’m so glad I got a chance to participate and find a new blogger in Carissa! Now I’m on the hunt for my next swap. Any suggestions?

      I didn't realize how fun it would be, honestly. I spent way more than I should have but I had such a good time buying everything. And then when I got my box I literally opened it as quickly as I could, I was so excited!

      Nicole, I can't even tell you, this gum is so good. I chewed some this morning and it totally curbed my sweet tooth! It's expensive in the store, so I'm going to buy a variety pack on Amazon. I think they have some pretty crazy selections!

    I am pretty sure I need to join the makeup one!!! I buy crappy makeup but I don't want to experiment with the good stuff because it is so expensive. These look so fun! Tricia Murdock recently posted...The Beautiful Why of PlanningMy Profile

      I didn’t even know I was buying crappy makeup until I tried the Ipsy Glam Bag. I put one of the eyeliners on my top lid and it didn’t rub off on my bottom lid and I literally was like, what magic is this?! Haha

      The gum, is amazing. I can't even handle it, I chew it every day and now that I'm running out I'm hitting up Amazon to get more. It's great for satisfying that sweet craving! No joke, I had a piece of pumpkin pie at work, and was like dang, I should have just had the gum cause it tastes better!

      Hahaha, clever! Well you totally nailed it, so thank you! And I'm officially addicted to the gum, I'm already all over Amazon to get more flavors, haha.

    Okay, I'm totally intrigued by the gum. I've actually purchased the birthday kind, but never tasted it for myself, always as a gift. Hmmm... I'm going to remedy that, I'm on the lookout! :) Those chocolates wouldn't last long here and that candle sounds amazing! I'm so glad you joined us for Fall Swap :) I hope you will be back this winter. XO -Dean

      I tried the birthday cake one too, but I wasn't impressed, so I just kind of forgot about the brand. I see it at Target all the time, and honestly rolled my eyes when I saw the gum. But Dean, I'm telling you, it tastes legit! I'm getting it as stocking stuffers for everyone in my family. I'm glad I joined the swap as well, I will definitely be back for winter! Though, I'm setting budget for myself with that one, haha. :)
