CG Swaps 12 Days of Christmas Swap Reveal

I'm a little late on this because I decided to stay in Milwaukee a little longer than expected, but today, I am excited to show y'all my fun gifts from the 12 Days of Christmas Swap from CG Swaps! My partner was Mistle from Sweet Tea and Hydrangeas, and I had so much fun getting to know her. I could quickly tell we had a lot in common, which made it even more fun to shop for her!

Starbucks Via Instant Peppermint Mocha Latte: I was so excited when I opened this because I love peppermint mochas from Starbucks.
Teavana Passion Tango Tea: This tea smells amazing, and I can't wait to try it.
Wintertime Hot Chocolate Collection: I was so excited to see red velvet hot chocolate as part of this trio. I love anything red velvet, and I have never tried red velvet hot chocolate.
Clint's Texas Salsa: When Mistle and I were getting to know each other, I told her I miss Texas salsa, so I asked her to send me some of her favorite salsa! I loved what she picked out!

Mint Target scarf: This scarf is so soft, and I love the color!
Sugar Paper planner: I love that this planner has so much space for each day. I'm using it as a blog planner this year.

Burt's Bees Cucumber & Sage Facial Cleansing Towelettes: I love facial cleansing wipes, and I can't wait to try out the Burt's Bees ones!
Essie Bahama Mama: I love this color! So pretty and fun.
Que Bella Masks: I love trying new brands, so I was excited to see these!
Colourpop Matte Gloss: This is such a great color, and Colourpop is a new brand to me.
Colourpop Eyeshadow: The color she picked out for me is so pretty!
Snowman ornament: I put the cute little guy on our tree as soon as we got him! He really dressed up our Chicago Christmas tree.

Thank you so much for the great gifts, Mistle! If you want to see what I got Mistle, click here!


  1. Oh man, you were completely spoiled this year! That Essie nail polish color, and I love that she sent you some of her favorite salsa too! I bet that you're getting a lot use out of that scarf with the Chicago winter!

  2. This looks like so much fun! I have that planner and love it =)

  3. That nail polish color is so pretty! I've heard lots about Bahama Mama and how everyone loves it!

  4. I love doing swaps like this. Meeting new people and getting to know them is definitely the best part!

  5. such a cute planner! and ooh i love wipes as well, so let us know if those ones are any good!

  6. What great gifts! Looks like she did a great job especially love the scarf and planner.

  7. I need to see photos of the inside of your planner! I had one from that brand last year and I can't find the exact style anywhere...I don't think they are making it anymore. I'm super sad about it because the 2015 version was EXACTLY what I needed and now nothing else will be good enough.

  8. I love when planners actually give you a lot of space to write! Some of them are so tiny, that if everything you had to do in a day could fit there, you wouldn't even need a planner.

  9. What great finds! I love that she sent you some Texas salsa. Bonding over missing spicy food...I can relate. ;)

  10. omg, I love both swaps! That Texas salsa looks heavenly.

  11. That's awesome! I'm also using Sugar Paper planner this year and I'm pretty happy with it so far.
