For a little while now, I have wished to set up a pen paling initiative, as I think to get letters through your letterbox is something of a dying art; it’s hardly done any more, and if you do receive something, it’s probably a bill or a junk flyer. (As a teenager with Aspergers, I would love to come home from school to letters, or the rare parcel, because they made me feel a lot less lonely..) I’ve teamed up with Natalie from Gorgeous and Geeky (click here to see her blog.) for this box swap; here is what she sent me:
We had agreed on the theme of summer-because after all, what could possibly be more than relevant than at the moment?!-meaning that there was a lot of pretty colours that were in the box. There was a wealth of stuff!
There was a net-because of course-a bath bomb, stickers, a lipstick, a wash bag (fab for a holiday!), a body scrub..
I love the shade of the lipstick in the parcel; the teeny tiny notebook will now sit on my bedside table. (I’m a habitual late night jotter! It’s a way to keep ideas together at the last moment..)
Because why not?!
I was also really chuffed to receive this; Scrub Love is a brand that I keep reading about on various blogs, etc-so I’d love to give this a try!
This was an immense blog box, and I’m very grateful to Natalie for sending me what she did.
P.S This was also inspired by Abbey Louisa’s blog; you can see her post here.
