Mug O' Comfort Swap: The Reveal

I love blog swaps...not only are they fun, but they are a great way to discover new blogs and 'meet' new bloggers! The last swap I participated in was the Spring Polish Swap, back in April of 2014...too long ago!! So, back in February, I signed up for the Mug O' Comfort Swap hosted by Chaotic Goddess Swaps.

I was partnered with Mickey from Lunar Liongodess. Unfortunately due to our busy schedules, we weren't able to exchange too many emails, but I enjoyed getting to know her and it was fun putting a package together for her.

Mickey, completely spoiled me!! I am so in love with everything she sent. What did she send?

  • Kentucky Derby Festival 2015 mug...I LOVE the Kentucky Derby, which I didn't tell Mickey, so I was beyond words excited to get this mug!
  • Earthy Browns Beeswax Lip Balm...we still have cold days here in Canada and lip balm is a must!
  • World Market Dark Chocolate Cocoa Mix...I love hot chocolate and I can't wait to drink this out of my new Derby mug!!
  • Red Hot Roasters Organic Coffee...this is Kentucky roasted coffee, which I can't wait to try.
  • Walkers Shortbread Cookies...shortbread is my favourite cookie, it reminds me of my childhood.
  • Rosemary Shortbread with Coarse Sea Salt...these are supposed to be sweet and savory, can't wait to try them!
  • Variety Tea Sampler...this has 5 flavours: Earl Grey Lavender Tea, Tropical Green Tea, Golden Chanomile Herbal Tea, Sweet Ginger Peach Tea (cannot wait to try this!!) and English Breakfast Tea
  • Blackdog Candles in Creme Brulee...this smells divine and portions of the proceeds are donated to animal shelters.
  • Old Honey Barn Kentucky Mint Julep Mixer...I was so excited to see that Mickey had sent this!! I love Mint Julep's (because of the Kentucky and Derby connections) and cannot wait to try this...after I get some Kentucky Bourbon, of course!
  • Louisville that Mickey sent a postcard representing her home with a note on the back. 
Seriously, how awesome is this basket?!?!? I told you that Micky spoiled me!! I have always loved Kentucky and I've always loved the Kentucky Derby...and I love that Mickey was able to tie both of these things into the Mug O' Comfort package she sent me. I am so excited about and in love with this swap package!

Thank you so, so, so much Mickey. I truly appreciate all of the effort and thought that went into this package, and I really love everything!

Go here to see what I sent Mickey!
