stepping into summer swap

Anytime I come across a blogging gift exchange I sign up. I probably should read more about said gift exchanges, but I just get so excited. Before I know it I'm fifteen minutes deep in the line at the Post Office ready to ship another $20 limit Target gift. 

I lead a fascinating life. Really. Pilates and Post Office visits. What more does one need?

The most recent gift exchange, Stepping Into Summer Swap, was hosted my Meg and Macy. Two key words lured me in to this exchange: sandals and nail polish. Okay, you caught me. Those are three words, but no tried and true female in the blogging world can say no to those two things made up of three words: sandals and nail polish. 

One quick click on Meg and Macy's blogs, a few questions answered, several emails exchanged, and wam bam thank you ma'am, I was back at the Post Office ready to ship yet another blogging gift. 

Side note: should I invite the Post Office workers to a Christmas party this year? Yes or yes? Yes, obviously, because we're all best friends by now. 

There are several times throughout the year that I get way too excited to check the mail. Those several times include: every single day because I'm crazy and think, for some reason, that I'm going to get mysterious surprise mail 365 days out of the year. BUT the times when I'm waiting for a blog gift are REALLY exciting because I know that when I open the mailbox that there will be something there other than Southwest trying to get me to get their credit card. Real gifts!

I was paired with Macy which means I was the luckiest because she sent the cutest sandals and polish. The cutest! Think of your cutest pair of sandals and your favorite color nail polish, and then just know that mine are cuter. Wink. 

Macy got me these lace-up sandals because she said they reminded her of tying up pointe shoes. They are also a lot more comfortable than pointe shoes so winning!
Fashion blogger. Candid. Blurry phone pic. What what.
Ignore my ugly dance/Pilates feet and just keep looking at the shoes and purple polish.

Thanks, Meg and Macy, for hosting such a fun giveaway! I'll sign up for one or twelve more if you'll host them ;)

This post is brought to you by the season summer, the letter S, and me forgetting to take pictures of gifts I get before I need to post a blog.

I don't think that it's possible to say no to a blog swap, especially when they involve nail polish and sandals! The ones that Macy sent you are so cute, and I love that they lace up! They'll be perfect for this hot summer in Houston, and of course, the hot fall and maybe even the hot winter as well. You never know with the bipolar weather we have!

I can relate to the whole mail thing. I'm not sure why, but I act like I'm going to get something amazing each day, and most days I am disappointed with terrible junk mail. But yay for blog swaps and online shopping to give us a little bit of excitement every once in a while! Cute shoes you got- so adorable!

WAIT WHERE ARE THOSE FROM AND HOW CAN I GET THEM?! Hahaha I am obsessed. I think I'd be too embarrassed to do a shoe swap because #size11 over here. Whoever got me would be like, "How come 90% of shoes only go up to size 10...? Can I trade?" Hahaha.
