Secret Sweetheart Swap : What I sent & What I received

When I saw Lauren's blog post about the Secret Sweetheart swap I had to take part, I love taking part in blog swaps especially ones with a low budget as I enjoy the challenge. The budget for this one was set at £5.

When Lauren first emailed me to let me know that I would be buying for Ashleigh I was a little concerned as I had absolutely no idea what to buy her! One trip to Tiger later and I was very satisfied with what I had picked. Everything bar the teabags and lollipop came from Tiger, the teabags were stolen (!) from the set that I bought for Spencer and the lollipop came from Home Bargains - I'm hoping that it arrived in once piece! 


I received my goodies from Kate. I love that Kate sent one parcel with just my gifts and a separate postcard to let me know that the parcel was from her, it was a real exciting mystery for a moment! Kate kindly sent me some items to pamper myself with because "we need some love too" - such a lovely thought! 


I received two packets of Love Hearts, a gorgeous nail varnish and a Yankee Candle (can't go wrong with any of these!). Thank you so much Kate - I love my gifts and the amazing packaging! 

I'd also like to express my thanks to Lauren for organising the swap, I know from past experience that it can sometimes be quite a stressful task! 

Bloopers...

I really struggled to take the photos for this post because Bob wanted to be in amongst it!
