So on Saturday, I posted about meeting my Pen Pal in Brighton; Abbie from Abbie Chic had organised a meet up to celebrate her blog birthday. Whilst there I was lucky enough to be gifted a goodie bag; therefore, I thought I should write a post about ‘unpacking’ it. It was very sweet, fabulous, and had a lot of ‘swag’ in it.
Abbie had designed the bags herself; aren’t they just the coolest thing?! (Definitely my favourite superpower.) There was also a tiny badge attached-right hand top corner in the photo-with the words ‘Eat, Sleep, Blog, Repeat’. Zazzle is a gem that I have yet to fully explore.
And the inside…
Dr Paw Paw, 10 ml multipurpose balm:
Dr Paw Paw, as you probably know by now, is one of my favourite things; with regard to that, I felt very lucky to receive this tiny tube. Nicer than the pink tint version I have, this version is ideal to tuck into your bag.I also like how it doesn’t have a smell, is slightly thicker than the pink version, and is clear. Perfect!
I love stationery, enough so to maybe start a collection; one day it could start a Museum. Anyway, I received a pink notebook, a green sketchbook notebook, a pencil, a bulldog clip, and a dog paperclip. I like the feel of the pink notebook in my hand; although a little bit small, I intend to save it for when I start a new project. The pencil is really nice to write with; because we all forget how nice an HB can be. The dog paperclip now has pride of place in my Filofax. Abbie had also wrapped this parcel up in tissue paper and washi tape, which was to keep it all together.
Abbie is my pen pal; it still delights me to receive fairly regular letters in the post. I was due a letter from her; instead of posting it, she gave it to me, and for safekeeping it was put in my goodie bag. I loved the pink ink (Paperchase’s!) and the feel of the paper in my hands.
As with any goodie bag, there are the PR cards; always useful, they often have the brand’s information, as well as maybe having instructions as to the products in the bag. Abbie also put in her business card and a note saying about what’s in the bag.
Nakd Snack Bars:
Because as a Blogger, I adore food. I was grateful to receive these.
Doctor Kimoto Original Hot Eye Masks:
Now I can’t find any website or social media for this brand, but if you do see it about, I cannot emphasise how great they are; essentially an eye mask, they heat via the air, and are relaxing. I got home from a networking event, and despite being knackered, used one. It calmed me down, and was relaxing.
If you read this blog regularly, you’ll know that I reviewed the Spongedry a little while ago; it’s an incredibly nifty device, and is ideal for a make up addict.
Little Known Box.
Little Known Box is a brand that I love, simply for how universal it is. There was a small bag of beauty products, and I can’t wait to try them out.
Thank you very much Abbie for inviting me, and gifting me these products; to see and visit her blog, please click here.
