If you’re a regular reader, you’ll have read about my pen pal initiative that I wished to set up; in collaboration with Abbie from Abbie Chic, we swapped boxes. (Click here to see my post.) The idea is to choose a theme, set a budget, and then send it off to the person in question… and you may exchange letters after! (Click here to see what I sent Abbie.) I teamed up with Emily from Thoroughly Modern Emily (visit her blog by clicking here) ; she’s a blogger with an uber cool sense of vintage style. Here is what she sent me, all the way from Chicago, United States!
I think I need to work on my presentation of blogger boxes.. this is what was in Emily’s parcel. I will admit to feeling a little bit bad, as I had bundled everything in in her parcel; I had been in a dash, a rush. Look how pretty this paper is!
This was the card; I love cityscapes like this! I’d love to go back to the States…and Emily is really funny; her card made me smile.
We had decided on a dual theme; stationery and beauty. As a female, I’m not the most feminine; I don’t ‘get’ make up, but I was delighted to receive this Eyebrow kit. Very easy to use…
Emily also sent me this eyeliner pen; I just had to try it out, there and then. The pen is thin enough to slip in your bag, and has a slightly springy cap. I love it, as I had been in need of one for a while.
Just how cute are these tiny noteletts ?!? (I think that’s how you spell it…) Emily noted how these reminded her of corresponding with a relative. These now are a permanent fixture in my handbag.
Thank you to Emily Hallock for sending me these!
