Blogger Secret Santa 2017

Since starting PaleGirlRambling in February I’ve made some incredible friends including my best friends Gemma, Chloe, Emma, Chloe and Paige. The girls and I talk most days about blogging and everything under the sun! We decided it would be a lovely idea to do secret santa this year and I’m so chuffed with all the goodies the lovely Gem treated me to! Em set up it for us using a handy website that you popped your details into and got an email of the person you got. You could also list some ideas for your secret santa but the girls all know me pretty well and as you can see Gem’s gifts for me are perfect!

Could this lamp be any more blogger?? Copper and fairy lights are two of my favourite things! Now I have my own house with a beauty room (how lucky am I?!) I am constantly looking for new things to decorate it with. This cute little lamp has pride of place on my desk and goes perfectly with all my other copper and rose gold accessories!

I was beyond excited to see these little Antipodes minis! Skincare is one of my ultimate favourites and Gem speaks so highly of the brand that I’d always wanted to give some of their products a go. I have such dry skin and this little set is especially created to give your skin a boost of hydration. I’ve used both the serum and moisturiser already and I’m hooked! The serum has a really strange and cloudy and is almost orange toned but when patted into the face it makes your skin super soft and glowy. The cream is light, hydrating and perfect for my sensitive skin. I actually feel it’s taken some of the redness out of my skin so I’ll definitely be treating myself to the full size.

I absolutely adore this cute star notebook from Anthropologie. I’m a notebook obsessive, I always find a reason to get another. The star pattern is so cute and it has a lovely soft back feel. I think this is going to become my new 2018 blog planning book so I get to use it all the time!

The final treat Gem picked for me are these clever little bath bombs in a cocktail shaker! I’ve had a pretty stressful time recently so these bath bombs are the perfect excuse to have a pamper night! I can’t wait to have a warm bubble bath and relax.

I’m so thankful to Gem for my lovely little treats and really hope we decide to do secret santa again next year! It was so much fun picking and receiving our presents.
