Blogger Swap Box! // with vieaveccharlotte


Hello lovelies! So inbetween the dodie chats and cacti rambles we spend forever talking about, last month Charlotte (from vieaveccharlotte) and I decided to do a Blogger Swap Box to send to each other. I was so excited about this as I've never done one before and so throughout last month we each started picking up little bits and bobs to put inside and wrapping them all up. Last Tuesday Charlotte and I opened them up on a skype together and ahhh I am so happy with everything! I love love love receiving things in the post anyway but this was even more special because it literally included so many things that were just perfect for me and I'm still not over how cute this package was. Today I thought I'd show you guys what I recieved in my Swap Box, and if you want to see what I got Charlotte click the link to watch her YT video which is going up tonight!


The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was how everything had been wrapped and numbered in a lil' older for me! It was in green, of course the colour of all things plant related hehe (right Charlotte?) and alongside a little list describing all of the pressies. There was also a card for me that she had written. 


Firstly, in two of the green packages she had got me these two Tea Tree and Creamy Coconut face masks (ahh don't these sound lush!) and the Imperial Leather grapefruit and pomegranate shower cream. Since taking the photos for this post, I've tried the shower cream and it made my entire bathroom smell amazing so 10/10 so far haha. 


Next, paired with a yellow envelope to match - I love all these details so much- she got me this Rimmel Nail Varnish. Now I'm no yellow nail varnish wearer usually but last weekend I went to the Dodie Concert and so Charlotte bought me this especially for it (being dodie yellow 'an all!) and I couldn't be more grateful! I feel like this is also my time to ramble about how BLOODY FABULOUS that concert was by the way but I'll save that for my Love List next week hehe. She also got me this adorable notebook to plan my tea and things posts in she said.


In the box too was this camera bracelet which I just though was so sweet and fitting for me being a photography lover' and that. I also unwrapped something handmade from Charlotte (literally one of my favourite kinds of presents!) which was a camera bag she had made herself, It's so nice and I will definitely be getting lots of use out of a handy cloth bag like that. 


And finally... a selection of green bits and bobs! Knowing how much I love plants, she got me this water spray and a little elephant key ring. The keyring is so cute and it's attached to my keys right now, thank you!

So I hope you enjoyed seeing what was in my Blogger Swap Box! I honestly LOVE my internet friends so much and it's just amazing that I'm even able to do things like this that I wouldn't have if it hadn't been for blogging. Crazy right? Thank you so much for everything in my box by the way Charlotte, and if you guys have not checked out her blog you totally should and I will speak to you all next week lovelies x

  3. Omg this is such a beaut idea and she clearly captured what you like so well- I'm scared I'd do a swap and I'd spend loads of time finding perfect gifts and I'd only get some soap in return lol. I loved seeing it work for you though, fab post (love the camera necklace oh my)
