Sandals & Nail Polish – Stepping Summer Swap Reveal

Sandals & Nail Polish – Stepping Summer Swap RevealA blogger swap where each participant is randomly paired up with another blogger. After spending some time getting to know one another, you then send them a package. This time the package included a pair of sandals and a nail polish.


When Meg and Macy shared that they were hosting a Stepping Summer Swap, I instantly signed up. I have a weakness for cute sandals and colorful nail polishes, so this swap is perfect for me. Plus, I’m always looking to connect with new-to-me bloggers to expand my blogging community. The best part of blogger swaps is getting to know other bloggers!


For this swap, I was paired up with Brianne from North Star Girl Lone Star World. It was fun getting to know Brianne. After checking out her blog, I knew I wanted to stick to a patriotic theme as her blog design is centered around red, white, &  blue with a vintage feel. I found an adorable pair of patriotic sandals and a fun clear glitter polish with red, white, and blue glitter & stars. It couldn’t have been better timing with the Fourth of July right around the corner. I have become a new reader of North Star Girl Lone Star World. (Patriotic photo, curtesy of Brianne from North Star Girl Lone Star World.)


When I received my package from  Brianne, I couldn’t wait to open it. Who doesn’t love receiving a mystery present?? She dressed up the package with colorful tissue paper and included a sweet note. Even though I wanted to tear right through it, I took some quick pictures to document the package. Brianne nailed my style with the simple cognac and black sandals. They have since become a staple in my wardrobe. She also included a foot cream that smells divine! Thank you so much for the perfect swap!
