Autumnal box swap with Lisa’s Notebook

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.

What I got Carl for his birthday

I know a lot of people think these “what I got my Mum/Dad/boyfriend/girlfriend” type posts are braggy because we’re just showing off all the wonderful, lovely gifts we can afford to buy but I can straight up tell you that this is not the case. With me and probably not for a lot of other people that do these sort of posts! I love other people’s birthdays (although I don’t really like my own!) and I love treating someone on their special day. Buying gifts for people I love is one of my favourite things to do because I love spend time and effort on getting them the perfect things and making them feel really special when they open them.

Magic Chest book subscription box review

I have reviewed a couple of bookish subscription boxes before in the past and I bloody love them – definitely more so than beauty subscription boxes. That’s obviously the bookworm in me talking but there’s nothing quite like getting a package and knowing there’s so much bookish goodness inside waiting to be opened! When I was contacted by Magic Chest*, a Fantasy based book subscription company, I was on it like a car bonnet. As it usually works with these types of boxes, each month is a different “theme”. I was given the option of the May box or any of their previous boxes so I went with one of their older “Fairy Tales” themed boxes. You all know I love fairy tales; Disney, magic, re-tellings. Give me it all. So I was super excited to receive this box and see what was inside.

24th Birthday Haul!

10 days ago, it was my 24th birthday (I wrote a post here) and I’ve never done a birthday present haul before due to a fear of it appearing show-offy or something but I figured it’s my blog and I can post what the hell I like. Yes, it’s taken me 3 and a half years of blogging to actually realise that. As I said in my birthday post (which you should have read by now, if not I’m totes disappointed), I’m not a huge fan of my birthday and I didn’t ask for much. In fact, of all my presents I actually only asked for 2 of them, the rest were surprises which I am very thankful for.
