I've been around on this little blog of mine for a while, and over time have become a part of wonderful community. But this year I developed some beautiful friendships with a few other bloggers, including my closest friends - RachaelGemmaChloeEmma and Chloe. Not only are they all incredibly talented bloggers, but they are some of the nicest and most supportive friends I have ever had. We have gone through so many highs and lows together, and spend most nights chatting away in a group chat about absolutely everything! So when someone suggested doing secret santa this year, I was so excited and immediately jumped on board! Em set it up through a website that picks for us and keeps it hush, hush! Being the only non-UK blogger in the group, I couldn't wait to introduce my secret santa to a little taste of my heritage and the every day life I live. I ended up getting Chloe Alice Lily, and Simply Chlo got me, and she sent some amazing secret santa gifts!

The girls would always talk about yankee candles, and I knew what they were, but they are just not available most places in Australia so I had never actually seen one before. I am a bit of a candle hoarder, so when I unwrapped this little candle I squealed just a little! I have always wanted to get some yankee candles, and I was blown away that Chloe picked so well for me - I love the smell of baby powder! It's one of those weird things about me I guess - haha! This candle has already been lit, and I love it! I also got this little bottle of essential oil bodywash and I absolutely love it, it smells very calming and it lingers on my skin all day. One thing people may not know, is that I have always been in to the Wiccan lifestyle - so things like essential oils and crystals have always been in abundance in my home, so it's no surprise that this body wash is now my new favourite! 

My absolute favourite gift of all, was the Harry Potter wand brush set. I am a very big Harry Potter fan and have been since I was about 12 years old. I even have a Harry Potter tattoo! You can just imagine my reaction when I opened these brushes, I feel almost bad using them because they are just so pretty! Definitely one of my most treasured gifts this year. I also recieved some very cute bumble bee earrings, which were in my ears when I took this photo - oops! As well as a very pretty pinky/nude nail polish that is enriched with vitamins and is said to strengthen your nails over time. I have awfully brittle nails, so this was a wonderful gift for me! Chloe did an amazing job picking all these gifts and I couldn't be happier with them!

I absolutely loved doing Secret Santa and can not wait to do it again next year! If you would like to see what everybody else got for their Secret Santa's, including what I got the lovely Chloe, you can follow the links above!

What are your thoughts on Secret Santa? Would you consider doing it with blogger friends?

With love, Paige. x
