So I have an exciting post today!! I took part in a secret santa which was hosted by the lovely Janna from Perception is Everything, the awesome Kelly from Messy Dirty Hair and of course Tabitha from My Cliffnotes, who I wrote about here!! As soon as I saw this gift swap I quickly put my name up and then realised that it might be a USA swap only, but thankfully two other UK bloggers put their name down for it too and it seems that we created a little gift giving triangle!!
As I can now reveal I sent a little package of goodies to none other than the amazing Rebecca from Happiness is Taylor Made! Yay!!! Although you knew that already... Haha it seems after certain things linked into place and then my little clue in the card I sent to her, she sent me an email basically saying it is you that is my secret santa isn't it!?!?!! Have a little looksie on her blog to see what I sent her!! I am also super super pleased that she loved all the little things that I sent!! I am so happy about that! Yay!! When I got told that Rebecca was who I was to send a gift to, I ended up getting so into her blog I read all of her past posts!! She is a great writer and her blog is just so easy to read, I bought her things that she had wrote about liking. And Rebecca since talking to you through email, I have tried to pin point where you said on your blog you loved stars and I still couldn't find where I saw it! Its in there somewhere!! Hehe!
So now here is what I received in the mail!!
I was told in my card to open the gifts first and I did as I was told!! Hehe, because after I had opened them the card told me more about the gifts I received! When I saw my parcel on my doorstep, I was just so excited!!! I had been wondering where my parcel was and had actually wrote on that days post I was wondering where it was (my Friday's Letters post)!
So in my card it said that the scarf, nail polish and bracelet had been bought when she was in Italy!!! I have been to Lake Garda before and absolutely loved it there so I was super pleased to have received such pretty things from a country I love! The scarf is just completely my thing, I always have a scarf on and I think this will just look super cute on during the spring summer time! The nail polish is just my perfect colour! I love having pink nails! I have not had a chance yet to try it out, but I will definitely be sporting this colour on my nails soon! The little bracelet too, is so cute and is a style of bracelet I would definitely choose for my self!
The next two items were a tissue holder and earrings, which were made by my secret santa!! I am super impressed by this and have no idea how you made that tissue holder!! Hehe! The pattern and colours on it are completely my thing and it just looks like it has come out of a Cath Kidston shop! So cute and she did very kindly put a bunch of tissues in it for me, but as you can see I have used them all up and this has been in my bag full of tissues since I got it in the mail! So thank you very much and my poor dribbly nose (sorry girls, but its true!) thanks you very much too!! Then the earrings she made were just so delicate and pretty! Sadly though I do not have my ears pierced, but I do think my mum will love them! So if you don't mind secret santa can I pass these onto my mum, she will love the pearls and that they have been handmade! I think I am the only 22 year old woman who does not have her ears pierced!! Hehe
I am so happy with my gifts and they are all exactly my style and things I would buy myself (with the exception of earrings! Hehe) Thank you oh so very much and I will now need to find out who you are and come and say thank you!
I loved taking part in this swap and will definitely be doing more in the future! It is a great way to make new bloggy friends!
Love, Jen x
