Back in July the lovely Rhiannon of The Sparkly Panda invited bloggers to take part in a swap. I love this kind of thing so I passed on my details and excitedly awaited my parcel. In the meantime I took my £5 and busily went shopping for a blogger in Italy!

I was getting anxious about my delivery when Dixx from I Meow Life sent me an e-mail explaining that my parcel would be a little late. I had no idea who had me in the swap until then so it was even more exciting knowing it was coming all the way from Romania!

My parcel arrived last week and the sheer number of stamps amazed me!

I was like a kid at Christmas! I opened my parcel very slowly and laid all the lovely wrapped mini-parcels neatly on my desk.

What could they be?! I unwrapped all the little treats one by one and here's what Dixx had sent me:

A pretty floral coaster, some candles, a bath fizz, a bracelet, some stationery and a chocolate bar!

Where to begin?! I started by sniffing the gel pens (as you do!) which are fruit scented and I opened up the pad and found a lovely message from Dixx. I love all the teapots!

I tried on the bracelet and it fits perfectly. I love the colours too, they're so pretty!

Next thing to go was of course the chocolate bar! It had truffle inside and a nice rum kick, which was a good start to my Sunday!

I poured myself a nice big bath and dropped in the fizz then lit the Summery Apple tealight. My bathroom smelt amazing!

After a nice long soak in the tub, I relaxed in front of the telly with a cup of tea on my new coaster and the Cozy Vanilla candle burning in my living room. I love candles, you know?!

I want to say a big thank you to Dixx for my wonderful parcel and to Rhiannon for arranging all this along with Ella of Hello Ella, it was great fun!
