Over the last few months, I’ve seen loads of my favourite bloggers collaborating with each other on posts and quite frankly guys… I felt a little left out *wipes tear*. I kid but seriously, I’ve seen a ton of blogger collaborations and I wanted in because they look fun and it’s always a chance to support another blogger at the same time so win, win in my opinion! Lisa from Lisa’s Notebook, who’s became a good blogging friend over the last year asked me if I’d like to collaborate in October so of course I said yes and of course I suggested a Autumn-themed collaboration.
Originally we had set a budget of £10 and all the items in the box had to be Autumnal themed. We quickly realised that £10 was utterly ridiculous and I literally couldn’t find anything so we upped it to £18, which was far more reasonable and realistic! I loved searching for the bits and bobs I was going to send Lisa and chose some things I knew she’d like (well, hoped she’d like!) steering well clear of anything that smelt like pumpkins. Lisa definitely did a much better job at budgeting and finding better value for money items than I did, I honestly don’t know how she managed to get this much for so little! But anyway, here we go, here’s what’s in my Autumn themed box swap!
KIKO Milano Green Me On-The-Go Masks
I don’t use face masks but I really do want to start so these will definitely get used! There’s a yellow, pink and blue clay mask in the box which look idiot proof to use (thenakfully) so I’m looking forward to giving these a try!
DW Home White Pumpkin Scented Candle
I’ve never smelt a White Pumpkin candle before but wowzers! What a scent! This is definitely a very Autumnal scent and something that will definitely get used, either in my room or no doubt my Mum will pinch it for the living room!
Dusky Pink Scarf
I’m not sure which brand this is as there wasn’t a label but this was a really good find from Lisa because it’s my favorite colour and definitely my style of scarf! I’ll 100% get a lot of use out of this in the Winter!
Again I don’t know which artist this was but this is such a bloody cute little print! Look at his little face! Definitely Autumnal, definitely cute and I’ll definitely be trying to find somewhere nice for this throughout Autumn!
Hardy’s French Truffles
Chocolate or edible items always go down well with me so I was looking forward to trying these. I love truffles and rich, creamy chocolate and these were very, very rich! If you love chocolate orange these will go down a treat with a cuppa!
Décopatch Mini Kit
Lisa very kindly remembered that I had mentioned on Twitter a few times that I was looking for more screen-less activities to do because I literally stare at a screen all day every day so including this kit was a really good shout and perfect for Autumn too because it’s a cute little bat!
Christopher Robin 3D Stickers
I’m totally ashamed to say that I haven’t seen Christopher Robin yet (I know, I wanna punch myself too) but I will eventually and I know I’ll just love it. These 3D Pooh sticks are so cute, I’m not sure where I’ll use them yet but I certainly will!
