 A good friend of mine named Ruby decided to start a Facebook group that would allow like minded bloggers to be apart of the group and be able to support each other and show each other some LUV. The group has definitely been a success, I feel like I have a group of sisterhood. 

A while back I came up with an idea of doing a gift exchange kinda like a Secret Santa and blogging or vlogging about it and I pitched it to the group. Unfortunately, it was a great idea but definitely bad timing so it got put off. Recently my friend Ruby from Growing up Blackxican and Xenia from Raised by Culture decided to put the gift exchange back in motion and do it for Valentines day. I was so excited about it and I hoped it would go well. (So far it seems to be going pretty well)

When I arrived home from work today a red box was waiting for me and I knew exactly what it was. I was so excited and I couldn't wait to open it. I knew it was my Valentine's gift from my "Secret Valentine" Laura from My 3 ring Circus. What a sweet lady she is, please stop by her blog and show her some luv. I personally am excited to continue reading her blog.

After prying open the box, I saw a bag full of what appeared to be some great goodies.

Boy was I right, after I pulled out what was in the bag, I held in my hands a polka dot little basket with an out pour of stuff. I was happy about the basket because I can definitely find some uses for that.

After pulling everything out one by one I was so happy that Laura knew me so well LOL. My favorite scents from Bath & Body Works, my favorite candy, especially the chocolate w/peanut butter. YUM-O (gotta hit the gym after but who cares haha) a pretty sparkly headband that I can't wait to wear because it surely will bring out my natural hair (by the way an update on how I am doing with that will be coming soon) and my favorite color in nail polish! I am definitely a happy camper and I can only hope Laura is as happy with her gift as I am with mine. Thanks Laura!!!! 

Happy Valentine's Day everyone
