It's the big reveal day for us Bloggers check out my Secret Santa experience!! #IrishbbloggersSS14


Hello lovelies,

Before we go any further I want to say a huge Hi and THANK YOU to Aisling from Total Makeup Addict for organising this event once again! Be sure to check out her blog, it's fab as is Aisling herself as I have been lucky enough to meet her a few times during 2014 and most recently at our Bloggers Christmas dinner we sat next to each other. 

I think it's fair to say with bigger numbers this year, there has seemed to be a lot more stress and I just hope everyone who signed up to take part has sent a gift as well as received one!! Fair play to Aisling for coping with all this as Christmas just wouldn't be the same without an ould Secret Santa :) 

So what did I get? Well I was so excited when I arrived home one evening to see a parcel waiting for me. The wrapping was just so well thought out at each of the 4 items were wrapped individually with little mini crackers added to the package. I love the pink and black combo and totally kept the ribbon for my hair! Now I am a sucker for a good wrapping so I really didn't want to open them but the Christmas urge took over and it was time to delve into my goodies...

The first little packages I unwrapped I could smell before I saw them.. two beautifully festive Yankee Candles which are just perfect for my little lantern I recently bought in Ikea.

Next up was the cutest little self made cracker which turned out to be loads of little Kinder sweets which is just brilliant as I love love love Kinder chocolate!!

Following on from the sweets was an OPI nail varnish gift set themed by the Muppets and the colours are just brilliant and deffo something I will get plenty of wear out of. And... it's Disney!!

Personalised gifts... ladies I melt! Just look at my little fairy decoration which has my name on it. She was straight up onto the tree and I just love her, such a personal touch was so nice!!

I left my biggest package until the end to open and was so happy to see a big makeup bag, it's so wide it'll hold brushes perfectly.

Overall I was so delighted with my gifts, I haven't met my Secret Santa before but I think she did an absolutely amazing job. I was really happy with everything I received and I loved the card, just so sweet.

I realise this blog post is full of words like 'love' 'amazing' & 'beautiful' but I am being totally genuine here, the gifts were well thought out and I felt really spoilt by my Secret Santa so thank you so so much!!

The big question of course you all now have is....Who was my secret santa... well I am delighted to tell you that it was Roisin from The Fashionista Observer You can follow her on twitter @FashionObserver. Roisin writes a wonderful fashion beauty and lifestyle blog and I deffo encourage you all to check her out and be sure to get following.

I really hope you enjoyed this Secret Santa post and once again a huge huge THANK YOU to Aisling for organising such a brilliant event. If you want to see how all other bloggers got on in their big reveal then check out the #irishbbloggersSS14 on twitter!
