Cupcakes, Doughnuts & Kisses from New York

Ding Dong! Ding Dong! I opened the door yesterday evening and found my mailman holding a package wrapped with pastel cupcake gift wrap. The look on his face was priceless! HaHaHa The package was from fellow blogger & friend Corinne of Cat Eyes & Thigh Highs of New York. Corinne sent me a BIG BOX of happiness with all kinds of goodies & treats: a "birthday diva" card with a beautiful message, doughnut coasters, mini-matchbook nail filers, pink & white candy sticks, caramel filled kisses and a soap cupcake gift set of AJ Sweet Soap. The cupcake soaps smell sooo good! I can't wait to try them! And they're vegan! That is so cool! Corinne, thank you so much! I've truly enjoyed reading your blog and getting to know you from day one. You're unique, highly creative, possess the coolest style and have the best boyfriend any girl could ask for. I'm truly proud of your accomplishments and how you've grown since I started following your blog. What you wrote in my card, truly touched my heart. Thank you doll!

What a wonderfully generous - and absolutely delicious-looking - gift Corinne sent you! Seeing this post really just reinforces what I've always believed about blogging, which is that when you put good things out there, even more good things will come back to you! You are so deserving Kim, I hope you really enjoyed being spoiled by your blogger friends for your birthday :)
