#photoadayMAY: Part Two

I showcased my first half of the Photo a Day Challenge pictures in my blog post here. Now I'm coming back to share my second half with all of you! This challenge has been so much fun, although I missed quite a few days in this half. My life has been pretty crazy busy lately!

But I'm definitely going to be doing the #photoadayJUNE so stay tuned!

Current Crush Thursdays


My current crush this week has been neutrals. I LOVE wearing neutrals in the winter, but I love them even more so in the summer. They are so classy, but versatile so you can pair them with neon or floral in the summer for that extra punch!

Secret Blogger Swap: The BIG Reveal

Earlier in the month, I announced that I was coordinating a Secret Blogger Swap. When I first launched the idea, I only expected about 30 bloggers to sign up. So you can imagine that I was blown away when 90+ fabulous ladies signed up to participate! This swap was so successful and I'm definitely planning on doing another one soon, so stay tuned.

For the Secret Blogger swap, everyone who signed up was given a person's name of who they would be sending their package too. They were also provided with that blogger's URL and five of their favorite things to get to know them better. Each blogger was also assigned someone who would be sending a package to them, but this part was meant to be a secret.



The purpose of this swap was to have fun and meet some new bloggers. Speaking from my own perspective, I read about 40 blogs each and every day. Then there are the other 60 some blogs that I have signed up in my GFC or Bloglovin feed that I read throughout the week.

Even though I read about 100 blogs per week, I'm always looking for some new ones. I love meeting new bloggers, especially those in your own blogging "niche" which is why I thought this swap was such a great idea.


Now for the fun part...

Today is the BIG reveal! So go ahead and link up your posts below on what you received in your package. Feel free to include that person's blog URL, pictures of your package, who you sent to, etc. The possibilities are endless. I just hope you all had fun doing this!

If you'd like to be a part of the next Secret Blogger Swap, be sure to sign up for the e-mail list HERE. I'll be sending out more details later on!
