This Christmas I had the privilege of being involved in the Irish Bloggers Secret Santa 2014, organised by the lovely Aisling from TotalMakeupAddict. The task was to buy a Christmas present, on a budget of €20, for a blogger who was assigned to us. A total of 56 took part this year! I was assigned to Kelly Petit from monptblog– you can go to her blog to see what I got her.
One thing I really enjoyed about doing this was how it allowed me to discover so many great new blogs that I never would have found otherwise, even through engaging with the hashtag and seeing others tweeting about it. It’s always great to find blogs that I find I want to go back to after.
Earlier this month I was delighted to come home from school to a package from Sarah (from ClassicWhiteMilkshake). I was so excited to see what was inside! When I opened it I found that she had gotten me a lovely wash bag with a really cute flower pattern, which was filled with lots of different beauty items – 2 P.S I Love nail polishes, a P.S I Love lipgloss, 2 nail files (with christmassy designs on them), a reindeer bubble bath, make up sponges, and a little sachet of shampoo. The best part, however, was the really nice message on the card and the christmas decoration tucked inside.
I really enjoyed taking part in this, it made me feel so christmassy and really gave a good start to the christmas season. I hope I get the chance to do it again sometime, and I can’t wait to read everyone else’s posts.
Are you feeling Christmassy this season? Have you done all your Christmas Shopping?
