Summer Secret Swap Revealed

I was lucky enough to receive my secret summer swap parcel organised by CPA Mom. Beth over at ice cream mama sent me the most wonderful summer package full of lots of lovely goodies:


Silly face candles. I don't what the weather is in Ireland but here in New Jersey it can be pretty bad. Citronella candles help a bit. (It's been a long wet summer so far but I'm hoping for an improvement if not I'll save them for next year. We used these candles in France and they were great).


Uv protection for your lips. I sent you a few because if your kids are like mine you'll be lucky to get one. (Or I could keep one in different bags then I'd always have one to hand)!


Marble mix ins. Great ice cream topping-well I am the ice cream mama.(Looks delicious).


Mints, junior mints. Not much to do with summer but you love them and I can get them. (A huge box as well).


Even more mints. Enough for the whole family. Yeah, a lame stretch I know-I blame pregnancy brain. (Even more big boxes, lucky me! OK so I may share one box with my family...if they're good...very good).


Receptacle's for ice cream. I would have sent the ice cream too but I'm afraid you'll have to provide that. (Glad you didn't because it would have melted over all my other gifts).

Beth, thank you so much for my parcel, I love it.

If you want a peek at the parcel I sent it arrived last week.

Looks like a fun swap. I noticed the Maeve Binchy book you sent. I haven't read that one. I love her.
