12 Days of Christmas: Goodies Reveal

I mentioned taking part in the Chaotic Goddess Swap's 12 Days of Christmas Swap a little while back and now I'm here to share the fun goodies that I received. My swap partner was Montana from The Book Belles. I think this was the first time I got someone who ran a YA book blog, and I was super excited!

I wish I knew what order I opened my gifts in, but I'm afraid I only took an after photo with everything mixed together. Regardless, Montana had everything wrapped really cute and we even used some of the bags for other gift giving opportunities! hah! Neither of us gave each other numbers for what to open each day, so it was fun to just reach in and grab something.

I talked to Montana for awhile via email getting to know her and allowing her to ask me questions so we could try and find the best possible gifts for each other. I hope she enjoyed what I sent, since I loved everything she gave me.

I got an awesome book all about One Direction (I admit it, I love them), two books from my wish list (The Archived and Kill Me Softly), Victoria's Secret Perfume (mmm mmm) The Princess Bride on DVD (I think I saw this when I was younger, but it's been forever), Sheldon 'That's My Spot' bookmark (Love the Big Bang Theory), purple nail polish and filer, two hand sanitizers, a Sephora lip gloss, See's Candies, Truffles, and a red ornament that I put on my tree right away! Whoo, a whole lot of awesome goodness!

Definitely check out Montana's blog!

I'm linking my reveal over at Chaotic Goddess Swaps. Feel free to check out what some of the other bloggers received for their 12 days.

Wow this is a great gift you got. I know that Montana is a great person and she seems to hit all the right notes with this gift. I hope you'll enjoy your books and that perfume sounds so good! :)

This is SUCH an adorable idea! I'm so glad that you were matched up with somebody who runs a YA blog and that you loved everything that you received. =) The Archived is wonderful, and the sequel is coming out this month, so it's the perfect time to read it if you haven't! I have Kill Me Softly on my Kindle, and I really need to get to it soon. Victoria's Secret perfume is ah-mazing, I'm jealous! And lol at the One Direction book.

Thanks for sharing, and I hope you enjoy all your lovely gifts! <3

I love Princess Bride. It has been ages since I watched it, now I might have to watch it again soon.

VS perfume is amazing. I actually even gave some out for gifts this year!

OMG that package makes me giddy! I loved loved loved Kill Me Softly, and The Archived looks excellent. Plus, The Princess Bride is a classic- I hope you enjoy watching it again! (I was practically raised on that one)

Thanks so much for joining us for this swap, and we hope to see you for future ones, too. :D
