GUILTY PLEASURES SWAP

PhotobucketI once again participated in one of Mamarazzi's swaps! In this one, we were supposed to send our partners things that we consider "guilty pleasures."  You know, things like your favorite bath oil that you only splurge on once a year, or an expensive cooking tool, or your favorite chocolate... What are your guilty pleasures?

My partner was Kathleen from Measuring My Life in Love.  She sent me this wonderful group of goodies.  There is a new Christmas Idea Magazine, a thankful journal, a photo album, a romance novel, an awesome apple candle, sweet smelling milk and honey chapstick, Aussie 3 minute miracle and bobby pins to do my hair, Apricot leathers - yum!, Chocolate Bliss, vanilla pudding and some fun purple nail polish that I'll use next week with my pedicure.
I had already wrapped these when I realized I had not taken a picture yet, so you have to imagine the insides of these packages as I describe them. 

To me guilty pleasures means things I wouldn't normally buy myself, but are seriously on a "want" list.  My life is so hectic that there is never any "pamper me time" so the Bath and Body Works Bubble Bath is a true guilty pleasure for those long, but far and few in between bubble baths.  I hate my feet or hands to get cracked from the hot summers or the cold winters and the Burt's Bees salve is so soothing and calming to the skin.  Because of my hectic life the key chain with the pictures is something that I can look at throughout the day to remind me of who I do it all for.  The baking mat is PURE guilty pleasure.  I have never burnt a cookie since I started using these mats so it's a 2 fold guilty pleasure since I have to make cookies to make this one work.  The oval frame I just saw and thought was pretty.

Hmmm. Yes, it was thoughtful for her to send a note, but I've been your partner before, and I know you send good packages, too!

I saved the bag for the picture after I had to throw out the chocolates. Unfortunately they melted on the trip over.
