A bookish box swap.


By now, you’re probably familiar with the idea of a Blog Box Swap; with another Blogger, a theme is agreed, you set a budget, and sending a parcel to who you’re paired with on the date set.
Myself and Rebekah from Rebekah Gillian (fellow Autism Blogger; click here to check out her blog) and I paired up; I can’t really remember how, it was possibly via Twitter. Anyway: we agreed on the theme of books (we’re both bookish) ; here is what I received:
Personally, I think Rebekah is psychic; I love Coconut Ice, and I think the last time I had some was when I was ten. (Nearly a decade ago!) Anyway, I loved the box included, and stupidly stuffed myself the afternoon I received them, and felt a bit sick..
The marble notebook is lovely; although slim, it’s now my poetry album. Here I plan to collate the odd verse that I write-maybe one day it could be a volume sold in Waterstones. (Because wouldn’t that be nice?!)

I also think she chose a really good book for me!

Blog boxes are something that I really enjoy; to get something that’s a surprise, and choosing something for someone on the other side, is possibly one of my favourite things to do. Besides, it’s always nice to get a parcel, right?

    First time hearing of this, it seems like a really fun thing to do. That parcel is pretty fantastic 🙂

    This looks like fun! I tend to do beauty swaps but not for ages.
