Now, what seems like such a long time ago (I think in August or September ) I signed up for my second snail mail experience! If you don't know what that is - it's an awesome little thing Gemma from Lipsticks and Lashes
(a blogger you must check out) created, and you once you sign up, you're paired with another blogger. From there, you get to know this new blogger friend of yours through email, texts, tweets, etc, and eventually send a fun care package to each other. I've actually done one before, which you can find here
, and they are seriously so much fun!
For this go around, I was paired up with Tori from the UK! Okay, I'm going to be completely honest and may have been a little too excited when I saw I was paired up with someone from there! I may or may not have jumped up and down out of excitement! :) Going to the UK is one of my biggest dreams, so it was just awesome that I got to talk to someone from there and learn so much about it!
So other than being from my dream place, Tori (who is from the blog 30 Plus and Beautiful
by the way) is so sweet and so much fun to chit chat back and forth with! The two of us never seemed to run out of things to talk about, ranging from traveling the world to college/university. I kind of felt like I had another big sister from across the pond! All in all, I'm glad I decided to sign up again because not only did I make a friend in California from the first one, but I made one in England as well! :)
Now, I mentioned care packages earlier, and the one I received from Tori was so cute! I do have to apologize for the opened packages of candy though. I was really good and took pictures before I opened them, but those pictures go deleted! (Oops) But that's okay, right? hah Along with the candy, she gave me adorable little cupcakes liners since I mentioned I LOVE to bake especially cupcakes, an adorable Christmas ornament, and a teeny pot of really pretty eye shadow! I do have to say thank you so much Tori for all of this! I really appreciate it!
One last thing - After seeing my now two experiences with Snail Mail, I really suggest you checking it out! It's so much fun to get to know other bloggers and the country they're from. Plus, you get adorable little packages as well! :) Here's the link
for the next sign ups, which ends Friday January 29th, so hurry up and sign up!
