Fashion Fridays Fancies & Favorite Things

Sorry that title was a mouthful, huh? Let me explain, I'm linking up with Blonde Episodes for Fashion Friday, Long Distance Loving for Friday's Fancies, and posting a blog hop for my Favorite Things Swap. Whew. I hope you're not too tired already!

Let's start off with the fashion. The weather is cooling down (but only a bit in Southern California) and I am ready for a full-blown fall. I love autumn attire, like this outfit.

Cozy Clothes for Fall


Be sure to link up with these wonderful ladies and play along :)




Now onto the swap!


A BIG thank you to everyone who participated in the swap. I was scared to host because I wasn't sure anyone would sign up but I was so excited that nearly 40 of you played along! That's amazing. Thanks so, so much!

I was paired up with the adorable Ashlyn of My Unrehearsed Life and received a great package of goodies!

She spoiled me with a funky, fashionable, rainbow-colored leopard scarf, gum, candy, lip gloss, and Essie nail polish! I love everything so much :)

Unfortunately I didn't think to take pictures of the package I sent Ashlyn, but the contents included The Hunger Games book, and fall scented candle, and argyle socks. Three of my loves!

Now it's time to show off what you received in the swap. Link up with your Favorite Things Swap post and show off the goods (you can list your blog name instead of post if you'd like). Be sure to link to your partner's blog so they can get some exposure.

I hope everyone was able to make at least one new bloggin' buddy as a result of this swap!!

If you haven't entered my giveaway yet, check it out here!

P.S. No Man Candy Monday this upcoming week. I'll be doing a Hart of Dixie review instead. Be sure to stop by to check out what it was like meeting Rachel Bilson!

P.P.S. I have another giveaway in the works for next week and an awesome clutch is up for grabs. Here's a sneak peek!
