I love doing box swaps (which blogger doesn't?) and when I came across "snail mail" the way to meet new friends around the world I was super excited and signed up straight away! I got paired with Daniel and although he is from the UK he has Nigerian roots and he speaks many different languages! I feel sorry for him being paired up with boring little me, but we actually had a great chat over email for a few weeks, it was super fun and he is really lovely- we talked about pretty much everything from music to our families! This months theme was gratitude and it was around the same time as the disaster in the Philippines so we were talking about how we were grateful for where we live and how we have a roof over our heads etc and it was really nice! And finally the swap came to an end *sad face* and we sent our gifts to each other *happy face* I sent Daniel a Christmas card, some chocolate santas and music notebook- not as near as good as his! Here is what he sent me:
Lets start with the "born lippy" from the body shop, I thought it was really nice that he read my blog and learnt what I liked and went and bought this! I really like body shop items and I am currently wearing it!
The lollypop from Starbucks I'd say that lasted just long enough for me to take these pictures before I demolished it yummy! The postcard from london he's so lucky he lives in London you can get post cards and little gifts easy I couldn't imagine there's a postcard of Stafford! How boring! Mini Notebook I love notebooks so much so I own 20, I am not even joking- this one is special though as it has a lovely quote on the front and as it's small it will be great for storing my blog ideas in when i'm out and about! Guitar Pick I used to play when I was younger which reminded me of then I might even pick my guitar back up sometime, might need a bit of tuning first? haha! and finally the letter and christmas card really nice to read and made me smile so thanks Dan! (If you're reading this) I'd recommend the snail mail collective to anybody who loves box swaps and getting to know new people!
