Fall Accessory Swap...

Hey y'all,

I know it has been two weeks but between preparing for the interview, the interview, stressing about hearing back, finding cute ideas for big/little for my only active grand-little(my first little and her little have both suspended their membership this semester) I have just not really felt like myself. Truly. It might have been the nude nail polish, but I haven't been feeling like much of anything(including reading)and therefore I have not been blogging so I hope you understand. I am still waiting to hear back about my interview but I have a phone interview this week as well, so here is to possibilities!

A few days after my trip to Chapel Hill to celebrate both of my Little's 22nd birthdays (they are within a month of each other) and my baby sister's 20th birthday I was excited to find my swap gift from the "Fall into Fall" Fall Accessories Swap. Due to swap partner problems, my swap was a bit delayed but I was paired last minute with Aimee of Aimee's World. I just want to say that I was so blessed with my gifts and truly love everything. 

Aimee got me this gorgeous scarf and three mini candles from Bath and Body Works! I am a really picky scent person (I think it has to do with my heightened sense of smell) but I really don't like super spice scents which I know is always in for fall but I love the ones Aimee choose for me. 
It is definitely not something I would have chose on my own but I love it and have paired it with jeans and a white shirt when I saw Pitch Perfect with my baby sister. It is gorgeous. 

Look at the cute box that held my candles.
 I am in love with this stationery. 
 I LOVE this candle. It is almost gone. Go get Cranberry Woods!
 Cinnamon Nut Bread. Probably my least favorite scent of the three.
 Plum Wine Amber. 
I am excited to start using this candle. I love fall scents for candles.
Aimee also sent this mini candle sleeve so my mini candles look gorgeous!



  1. You first paragraph is my life, to a tee, lately! Hang in there, girl!!

    and having worked at B&BW, those mini candles are the best! Super fragrant but lets you try lots of scents without being committed to one!

  2. Fingers crossed for you. :) Love the candles at bath and body works.

  3. Ahhh! So glad you liked everything! I'm planning on getting my post up within the next couple days. Actually, you being my "late" swap partner worked out perfectly because after I emailed you my first swap partner emailed me and y'all asked for basically the same things so I got to buy two totally different but totally gorgeous scarves! And the candles I got here were all super spicy scented! It was fun :) I'm so thankful of everything you got me! The mug is PERFECT!

  4. Cinnamon nut bread?! Mmmm I bet that smells heavenly!

    P.S. Make sure you enter my monogrammed ring giveaway--it ends tonight at midnight!


Thanks for the sweet note!
