From one Brittany to Another

This week, my Cara Box came in the Mail. Cara box is an exchange between bloggers in an attempt to meet  & get to know one another.

Cara (car-rah) noun : beloved friend. 

My gifter was Brittany, over at Blissfully Britt. She was the sweetest and made me feel so special. Some of my favorite posts of hers talk about Personal Space, her and her s/o's archery date and quite the  weekend of celebrating.

The theme this month was your initial. So everything in my box starts with the beautiful letter B.

Brownstone NYC Nail Polish
I love, love, love painting my nails. Never do I feel better and more beautiful than when I'm wearing a rocking outfit with my nails well-groomed. That being said, I am so excited to try out this new color because my wardrobe basically consists of the colors found out in nature (ie. greens, browns, blacks, dark blues and reds.)
Bracelet, Black Gold Enamel Link Bangle (see here) This thing is one of the cutest pieces I now own. Want to know the best part? I just got a new black and gold watch a month or so ago, and have absolutely no other jewelry to pair it with. I'm a big silver gal and had nothing else with a stitch of gold on it. Enter, this guy. 
Beverage; Stash green & white Tea
I am quite the fan of green tea - so I am not surprised to see this lovely friend in my box this month. Probably every month. I love to have green tea for breakfast every morning, and the can work through a box pretty quickly. The truth of the matter is, you can never have too much green tea. Pair it with some white tea, and it sounds like my kind of rendezvous.

Burning light - Glad cashmere woods candle
(not pictured) But when I whipped this baby out the whole box smelled like it. It was beautiful. Its kind of a mix between woody / clean laundry. I have become relatively obsessed with lighting candles lately and was pleased to see this guy.
EOS strawberry sorbet lip Balm
I am a chap stick fiend. I sometimes find myself putting it on repeatedly every few minutes. I just love my lips to feel very soft and very moist. My sister and her friends rave about EOS, and are always telling me I should trade up from my average chap stick. I have been stuck in my ways!! But now I have no choice but to try it, and I am excited to see what all the hype is about.

AND... along with all of this wonderful gifts came a sweet letter of encouragement from Brittany herself. It was so sweet finding her blog and getting to see a little of what her daily grind is like.

I felt so special receiving and tearing through my box, and she did such a clever job of making the whole thing, just, perfect.

(Thank you so, so, SO much)
Did any of you participate in the Cara box exchange too? what kind of goodies did you get!?
