Back in October I signed up for my first ever blogger secret Santa. In fact I signed up for two.
This one was hosted by 3 very lovely ladies who I would like to say Thank You too. They coordinated the swap brilliantly and were always available to answer questions when I wasn't sure what was going on. Good work ladies!
I was secret Santa to Jen over at Its a Blondes Life. After reading her blog several times I just knew I had to get her something pink, girlie and oh so cute! I actually got all my gifts from Italy, when I was over there recently, I thought this would be a lovely touch to the secret Santa experience.
This morning I found out who my secret Santa was, Rebecca from Taylor Made Happiness.
She sent me the sweetest e-mail:
How are you? I am Rebecca and I blog over at Happiness is Taylor Made and I am your Secret Santa!!
I hope your presents arrived safe and sound and you like the gifts that I chose for you. I love your blog and have been reading along quietly over the past few weeks, now that you know I am your Secret Santa I will start to follow properly and comment away.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and new year,
take gentle care
PS - although I live in London now I am a Yorkshire lass too ;) "
Thank You Rebecca. There may have been several squeals of delight whilst I was opening the package.
Lots of pretty packaging and candy canes! I actually received this the morning of an interview and saved it until I got back. I didn't get the job, so opening the package was a lovely thing to do.
You all know about my obsession with books. Well I adore a company called the Literary Gift Company. Rebecca just happened to get me a brooch with my favourite ever Virginia Woolf quote on, "books are the mirrors to our soul."
I was also lucky enough to get some nosewarmer punch, which is like a pre-made spice mix for apple cider. It tastes great with apple juice, but somehow even better with Jack (Daniels that is).
Then a cheesecake recipe book. In love! I haven't actually made anything out of it yet, but I will do over the Christmas period.
Thank You once again Rebecca, I couldn't have been a happier recipient.
I'm off to reveal myself to Jen, in a non-nudity way!
