#SPBoxSwap: Swap with Dean of Mrs. AOK!

Back in July I took part in the #SPBoxSwap {Sweet Progress Summer Box Swap} hosted by Ashley of Happy. Pretty. Sweet. and Dean of Mrs. AOK, and had the absolute best time; so when I heard that they were hosting another for fall {my favorite season!}, I literally signed up immediately.

This time around I was partnered with one of the hosts herself, Dean of Mrs. AOK, and let me tell you right now, she spoiled me with all of the fall things. Take a peek at the autumn goodness below!

Bookmarks: Re-Marks Cats at Play! Coloring Bookmarks | Chocolate: Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Caramel Squares | Nails: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in MAUVE OVER | LIVE DARINGLY, BOLDLY, FEARLESSLY Journal | Coffee: Starbucks VIA® Iced Caramel Coffee | HELLO PUMPKIN Hand-Painted / Written Mug | Coffee: Starbucks Via Instant White Chocolate Mocha | Socks: XHILARATION Knee-High Socks | Chocolate: Ghirardelli Chocolate Milk Chocolate Caramel Squares | Colored Pencils

As I said, pure. autumn. goodness. - exactly what I was expecting when I read Dean's note saying that she was going for a cozy fall day theme. The cat bits were literally made for me. I want to live in the knee-high socks - which feature cats, tigers, and lions {with a 3D-like mane!}; and the coloring bookmarks already came in handy yesterday afternoon when I came home from work beat, and wanted to do nothing but whip out those colored pencils and play creative. Which I did for a few hours - including time spent doodling in my new journal! I even added a few fall stickers from the pretty sheet included!

Though I am so not a foodie, some of my favorite things in this box were, indeed, the treats. My absolute favorite piece, tbh, is the Hello Pumpkin Mug which, I believe, was handwritten by Dean {you have the most fabulous writing btw!}.

My nephew was over when I opened my box, and he swiped two chocolates from me the second he saw them; but I managed to salvage a few for myself, and let me just say that they are incredible! The Pumpkin Spice Caramel Squares were my favorite - the flavor is just so quintessentially fall! And the coffees? I haven't had a chance to try them yet; but I am super excited to do so - in fact, that White Chocolate Mocha is calling my name right now!

You all know how I feel about nail polish, and Dean did something that no one has achieved yet - she gifted me with a nail polish shade that I don't have; and it's a color that I've coveted for ages. Give yourself a huge pat on the back for that achievement girly! I've been searching for a mauve polish for the fall months {it's the perfect color to pair with oversized sweaters}, and now I finally have one! Expect swatches v soon!

Thank you Dean and Ashley for, once again, hosting a stellar swap! And thank you Dean for being my swap partner - I could not have asked for a better one! Is it winter yet, because I am so ready for next season's swap!

NO WAY!!! Finding a nail polish was the hardest. I kept going back and fourth with my daughter on what color would go best. I had to keep fall in mind and the contents of your pacake, it all kind of had a fall color scheme... that's a little crazy of me...
Anyway, yes, the mug is handwritten by me. :) I tried a new oil based Sharpie that I'm praying to all the Sharpie Gods works. I wanted to make a mug for myself but haven't yet.
I'm glad the bookmarks came in handy. :)
I have a slight confession.... my husband jacked your stash. I purchased some pumpkin spice caramel for apple coating, he thought it was for us. DOH!
It was truly a pleasure to swap with you! Thank you, for such an awesome swap.

I love that these focus on the seasons. Fall was the first one that I was able to do but it's my favorite season. You got some wonderful items. That's awesome Dean got you a nail polish you didn't already have.
