The Beauty Gift Swap! 

Hey guys! How’s your Sunday going? Today I want to post about something I’m a part of and I’d love for you to be a part of it too! I’m admin for  a beauty swap box group on Facebook where each month members are teamed with a buddy and you each put together a box filled with lovely beauty, skincare products and other little gifts that you think your buddy will like. The amount you want to spend on your swap box gifts is entirely up to you and your buddy!  You don’t have to join in each month, you can just do it the once if you’d like. 

It’s lots of fun and it’s great making new friends in the process. If you’d like to join or want to know more then click on one of the pictures to take you to the group. Sadly, because it may be expensive to post to other countries, the group is for UK and Ireland residents only.

Gifts For Book Lovers…

I love my books and I love escaping into a whole new world that isn’t my own. I find reading really relaxing and can be, more often than not, found with my head stuck in a book rather than my eyes glued to the TV – unless it’s the Winchester brothers, the Salvatore Brothers, Klaus, Daryl Dixon, Oliver or Barry and then maybe, juuust maybe, my attention may waiver just a little to the TV. 😉

I love books so much that I would probably be considered a geek as I love anything book related too! I recently found myself trawling through several shopping sites for all things book! I came across sooo many things that I wanted and I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you all.



This Hoody from Look Human is me all over! I can see me wearing this at the weekend doing just what the hoody suggests! And to be even more ironic, I can also see me wearing this on a trip to Waterstones, then once I’ve had a lengthy browse through the books, I’d  go upstairs to Cafè Neros, enjoy a lovely cup of Chai whilst reading whatever book/s I’ve purchased!



I love the classics! Although I love Pride & Prejudice, it is my sister’s favourite book and I saw this Cushion from Look Human and thought of her. The quote suits both her and me down to a tee!



This Books and Tea One Cup Teapot from Etsy is so darn cute and perfect for those who love their tea like I do! Hah I could be wearing the hoody from above whilst making a lovely cup of Chai from the teapot!



I love Etsy for their unique gifts and this Bracelet is no different. The quote is so true! I still have a tonne of books that I need to read haha!



These stud earrings from Etsy are so quirky and I love anything quirky! Might just have to buy these as they are so me!



I love Game of Thrones and although I am yet to read the book series (they are amongst the books on my bookcase that I’ve still to read), I felt this quote from A Dance With Dragons is so apt for fellow book addicts:

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”

This Bracelet was another awesome find from Etsy.



I LOVE this Scarf! Also from Etsy. It has a beautiful quote from my favourite of the classics, Romeo & Juliet, which reads:

Romeo: O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?


Juliet: What satisfaction canst thou have to-night?

Romeo: The exchange of thy love’s faithful vow for mine.

Juliet: I gave thee mine before thou didst request it:
And yet I would it were to give again.

Romeo
: Wouldst thou withdraw it? for what purpose, love?

Juliet: But to be frank, and give it thee again.
And yet I wish but for the thing I have:
My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,

The more I have, for both are infinite.”

*sigh* There’s just something so romantic about the way Shakespeare writes.

So those are just a sample of what I found and love. What do you think?

Guys, I need your help!



Here in the UK, Mother’s Day is just around the corner (15th March) and I have no idea what to get my mum! I don’t want to do the usual like flowers or pandora charms/jewellery, typical card shop Mother’s Day gifts or perfume. I’d like to do something different but I just don’t know what! She likes cats, she’s quite the sentimental soul, she wears a little moisturiser with a bit of makeup each day but I wouldn’t say she’s cosmetics obsessed. I thought about gifting her a subscription box but I’m not sure which would be right for her. Maybe something that doesn’t solely focus on cosmetics. Eek please help! What would you suggest?
