About a month ago, I set up the Christmas Blogger Gift Swap where all types of blogs/bloggers could get involved: each blogger was paired with another and they exchanged gifts for Christmas.
I was paired with the gorgeous Megan from beaut-iful-you. After texting and emailing, we decided on a budget of £15 (which I may have exceeded).
As soon as the package arrived, the first thing I opened was the card. It was an uber cute reindeer.
I had mentioned these in my Christmas wish list I sent Megan and so I was pleased that she had purchased two pairs for me. They are so cute and black is the perfect colour for me!
I took both pairs with me to Boston and they are super warm and comfy – I love them!
Lush bath bomb
When I was unwrapping the presents, I could smell a gorgeous (but really strong) citrus-y smell. Before even opening it, I knew it had to be from Lush.
This is called Dashing Santa and I can’t wait to use it this weekend. I’ll be sure to post a review on it.
Another thing on my Christmas list was stationary (specifically from Paperchase). Whilst I hadn’t planned on getting any more notebooks
(I have far too many as it is), I know that it will come in handy sometime soon since I’m forever making lists. The design is so pretty as well!
I’m really pleased with my presents and I hope Megan likes the ones I got her!
I’ll be doing a Christmas Blogger Gift Swap (#apovgiftswap) round-up post in the near future with links to everyone’s posts!
