Friday Five & A Pretty Little Beauty Swap

Let's get right to it!

Linking up with Lauren @ Lauren Elizabeth for High Five for Friday as well as Darci and crew for

{one}
The Spring Style Me Challenge started on Monday with Alison @ Get Your Pretty On
I love receiving an email every night giving me an idea of what to wear the following day!
I did purchase some of the items on the shopping list, but most I already had :)
Check out my recreations every Wednesday along with some other fabulous bloggers :)
Read all about the first couple days here.

Wednesday was my last day of the 24 Day Challenge!
Can't wait to recap my final results for you on Tuesday :)

We had a cold and snowy day on Tuesday, but the weather is finally starting to look and feel like Spring around here!
Sunny days and warmer temps! YEH!

{four}
I celebrated my first day off of the challenge with Chipotle!
While always good, I wasn't blown away by getting to half it.
Kind of made me want healthier food :)

{five}
It is Easter weekend!
That means coloring eggs, maybe an egg hunt, yummy food, and fun times with X!
I can't wait!

How was your week?
Do you have big plans to celebrate Easter or do you keep it low key?



Linking up with Justine @ Sleepy Single Girl, Chelsee @ Southern Beauty Guide, and Ange @ Hairspray and Highheels.

I mentioned here that I was participating in a fun little swap this month. The rules were simple: Get to know your partner's beauty likes/dislikes over a month and then send them a package of goodies :) Two products were to be full size and the package should total in around $15 or more.

I was paired up with Rachel @ Rainy Days and Rubber Ducks :)

Here is a sneak peek of what I sent her....
Guess you will have to stop by Rachel's blog to see what she received from me :)
And of course I sent something that was orange :)
Die hard Cleveland Browns fan here people! ;)


Here is the package I received from Rachel...



WOW! There is a lot of new things to try!
Earth Therapeutics Loofah Exfoliating Soap-Aloe Vera & Kiwi
Essie nail polish in Bikini So Teeny
Studio Gear CC Cream Natural
Dr.Jart+ Ceramidin Cream sample
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo & Conditioner samples
Harvey Prince -Journey Perfume sample
Maybelline Baby Lips-Rose Blush

Being that I was in serious need of a Spring shade on my toes, I immediately painted my toes when X went to bed the day I received this package!
The polish is the perfect light blue shade for the season!

I also opened up the Baby Lips and tossed it right into my purse.
I can never have enough chapstick/balm around!
It has just a hint of color, which is perfect for me.

I also tried the Kiehl's line reducing cream and the dry shampoo.
I love how easy the Kiehl's goes on and immediately looks like it is working! I have only used it for a couple days, but I already see improvement! I am kind of skeptical of dry shampoo because it tends to weigh my hair down. This spray was powerful, but light and had a very faint smell. Again, just how I like them!

Can't wait to try the rest of the products over the next few weeks or so :)

Did you participate in any blogger swaps?

Have a wonderful weekend!
