Throughout July, I was very lucky to receive some amazing things in the post. As a blogger, as I’m sure a lot of you will understand, post time can be your favourite time of day and the postman can become your best friend. I get along really well with my postman now as he’s always bringing me parcels! Anyway, I worked with some great brands and received some amazing books in the post this past month so I wanted to share them with you here along with some other goodies! I’m also thinking of maybe doing one of these ‘stuff hauls’ every month! What do you think?
I think the most incredible thing to grace my front door this month was the giveaway prizes I won from @LadyWrites_Blog on Twitter. I’m not new to the odd giveaway win but this was £150 worth of beauty products and it blew my socks off. I was so incredibly lucky to win all of this and it included products from M.A.C, Rimmel, Paul & Joe, Kiko, Mugler, Clinique and so much more. I’ve already started using some of the products and I still can’t quite believe I won them all. I also won a few books this month including, “The Dry” by Jane Harper which im’m incredibly excited to read and “George” by Alex Gino which looks incredible as well.
I also worked with a couple of brands this month which I’m not going to go into huge detail about here and I will have individual blog posts up for each of them – which are either already up or will be up in August some time – but here’s a few photos of the products which were sent to me, including: Rhodiarama Pocket Notebook, Urtekram’s Nordic Berries Organic range of products, which I will be reviewing this month and a bunch of tea’s from We Are Tea which again, I will be reviewing this month (and you’ll also see much better photos of these products than the quick ones I took for this post!)
I’ve also been extremely lucky to receive some review copies this month and I’m going to start with the one that literally made me cry which is the proof copy – the first ever physical proof copy – of Lynsey James’ new book, “The Season of Hopes and Dreams” (I know the cover says different but the title got altered shortly after printing!) and a lovely letter from Lynsey to go with it. I am so proud of this girl and I can’t wait to read this book. Also, how stunning is the cover?
I also received Last Seen Alive by Claire Douglas which I have already read and reviewed here (spoiler alert: it’s incredible) and Close to Me by Amanda Reynolds which I’m super excited about starting!
I also ordered myself some really cute paper and envelopes from eBay as I’m going to start a little letter writing project (which should be semi underway by the time this post goes live). I love these and can’t wait to get some sent out! I should have a post up with more details about this project this month, yay!
