Cara Box


I've seen Cara Box around blogland and it always peaked my interest to join, but it's a risky surprise ya know? I mean... it's a complete stranger that you sorta chat via email for a couple days and then they send you a package of things. I've done swaps many many many years ago and I have been jipped a couple times. *shrug* It just happens from time to time. For my first Cara Box swap I got pretty darn lucky because my partner Brittany, who blogs over at Aviation of Love is amaziiiiiiiing! My box? Winner winner chicken dinner. I love... like, seriously love everything I received!

First off, she's also a military wife *thumbs up* It's always nice to have more military friends :)

She doesn't know this, but I was actually eyeing Tree Hut shea sugar butter in this scent on Amazon awhile ago, but I think it was back ordered. So, when I opened my box and saw the scrub? I was literally over the moon excited. Then I got the lotion and body wash from the same line too. The scent? Smells like tropical Starburst and I feel like I should be lying at the beach somewhere instead of being cooped up inside. I'll have to do a review of the scrub on my beauty blog instead. All I will say is that it's AMAZING!

Brittany and I are both really into nail polish... I think if she saw my stash, she'd think I'm crazy. I know for a fact my husband and a couple friends already think I am. She got me this really pretty blue/green color which I actually don't own. I have some a little lighter and some a little darker. Perfect shade for Spring and Summer.

Third, she sent me a jar of her homemade diy laundry detergent + the "recipe" to make my own. I am extremely excited about this. I've been wanting to make my own for awhile now, but I still have a brand new liquid detergent which is going to take me foreverrrrr to finish up. With my hubby gone, I only have so much laundry to do!

I seriously loooove this box and I am so glad to have met you Brittany! Also, Thank you to Kaitlyn for creating Cara Box.

  4. I love receiving mail and packages, especially from bloggers. I've signed up for Cara box once before. I need to again!


    One time, I signed up for a swap, and my partner never sent me anything :-( even lied about sending it.

    1. Ohhhh I had someone do that to me once. I made her an entire layout... worked my butt off and she was sending me goodies from the UK. Apparently "it got lost" which could be true, but still.
