When it comes to Christmas I'm one of those people who likes to go a little bit overboard when it comes to presents and i always like to send more things to pen pal as a little Christmas treat too. I received a package off my pen pal yesterday and as you can see from the photos she really really spoiled me, I'm actually in shock as to how much she sent me, anyways i thought id do a little pen pal haul and show you all the goodies she sent me!

I received some of the basics like a letter, xmas card and also a couple of postcards from Texas - my pen pal lives in LA but her family live in Texas so she got these on a recent visit there. Also the little beaded ghosts and the robot her boyfriend sent to me as i sent a couple of sweet treats for him as he seems to enjoy all the things i send Ale.

She sent me a tonne of sweets, so rather than talk about each one individually I'm just going to list them all here:
- Ramune Carbonated Soft Drink
- Ramune Carbonated Soft Drink in Strawberry
- Twizzler 'Strawberry' Twists
- Charms Blow Pop Minis
- Palmer Peppermint Bark
- Dark Chocolate Covered Graham with Holiday Sprinkles
- Sour Patch Watermelon
- Wonka Chewy Spree
- Klik Cornflakes
- Twix Santa
- Snicker Peanut Butter Santa
- Nestle Crunch Crisp (I got two of these but i ate one - tasty!)

As well as all those lovely sweet treats; she also sent me Bath petal Vanilla Spice Body Lotion and Shower Gel and a couple of Sonia Kashuk products which made me so excited as it's not a brand that's available in the UK - she sent Sonia Kashuk Moisture Luxe Tinted Lip Balm in Hint of Red and Sonia Kashuk Eye Definer in Purple Passion. I love absolutely everything Ale has sent me and i can't not wait to try everything out.

I feel like I've been well and truly spoiled these past couple of days as not only did i receive this incredible package off Ale but i was really fortunate to win Emma from Glossy Boutique's giveaway (Thank you!!) and i received that the other day too and the prizes are just incredible, i feel so spoiled and so lucky and its not even Christmas yet!

Have you received any lovely packages lately?

  2. I have 4 pen pals from Virginia, Ghana, Finland and Philippines. We like to exchange printed ads such as brochure or leaflet from a supermarket or department store in our town. It's fun to see how different they are from each country. (:

    1. Yeah thats what i love seeing how our lives differ!
