Cara Box Reveal - Finally!

My sincerest apologizes for the delay on this post! I feel so horrible. It has just been so ridiculously crazy as posted here, then right after that post, both Baby S and I got sick and are still sick **sad face**

I cannot express how thoughtful this Cara Box from Amber @ Assorted Whimsy is.  We only exchanged a few emails, but each item has really touched my heart.

Insulated to-go cup with reusable ice cubes
If you follow me on Instagram, you know my love for all things coffee.  What totally bums be out is that when I take iced coffee to work, I basically have to gulp it down before the ice melts and it ends up being a waste.  This item is not only perfectly functional, but it decreases my carbon footprint (i.e. no more mid day Starbucks runs for iced coffee and wasteful containers).

Super cute gardening gloves
Okay, Amber...are you totally spying on me or something?!  I've been doing a lot of research on container gardening lately.  I don't have a yard or anything, but I really want to make a little shift to sustainable living.  I'm not unrealistic, I know I'm not going to grow enough food to feed my family, or myself for that matter.  But I thought it would be a fun, therapeutic project that would benifit my family's lifestyle.  So needless to say, these gloves will definitely come in handy!

Felt flowers
These felt flowers with rhinstones in the middle are absolutely adorable!  Can you believe that she even kept my daughter in mind?  I love to sew and do arts and crafts so I can't wait to use these and show you guys! Plus, they are made from 100% recycled fibers.

Decorated mason jar
This mason jar was one of the centerpieces from Amber's baby shower.  By sharing this with me, I really feel the love of this blogging community.  When I started my blog a few months ago, I was really scared to communicate with other bloggers.  I was afraid of what they might think and maybe they wouldn't want to communicate with me and my little corner of the internet.  But Amber and a few others have really made me glad that I started my blog.  I love this mason jar, not just because it's so cute and will go perfectly in a few areas of my home, but because of what it represents to me.  I've seen mason jar crafts on Pinterest that I wanted to try.  This one is so cute; I can't decide if I want to put a candle or flowers in it.  When I do decide, I will be sure to share!

The Gnarly Whale lip balm
Since I found out I was pregnant, I have been very wary and cautious about what I put on and in my body. This lip balm is from an Etsy shop called Gnarly Whale. They provide vegan bath and body products.  The flavor I got is cherry vanilla.  I must say, YUM! It smells so good that I could eat it. I love lip balm. I literally keep them everywhere! I'm typically really picky though because a lot of them leave my lips feeling waxy - but not this one!  It goes on really smooth and doesn't have that waxy/coated texture. They have such an array of flavors to try, too. I'm definitely going to have to order some - Asian Pear, Coconut, Pomegranate and Strawberry Champagne to name a few!

Thank you Amber for the wonderful Cara Box and for touching my heart.
