Tag Archives: it came in the mail

my-wardrobe gift

This lovely parcel came in the mail last week – a little gift from my-wardrobe.com. What could possibly be inside? I’ll reveal that shortly. In the mean time, I’ll keep you guessing. I also received a physical copy of the Style Guide that I mentioned a few posts ago. Because I’m one of those people who believes that books > e-books, I much prefer this version of the Style Guide. Plus, unlike the online version, there’s no temptation to just ‘click through’ and purchase an item!

mrs. press

How lovely are these Mrs. Press lotions? I received them thanks to a giveaway via Daydream Lily*. Not only do these bottles look pretty, standing there in a row, but they smell absolutely divine. These have only been in my possession for a couple of days but I seriously can’t get enough of them. I’m definitely thinking that Tea Rose will be the scent to my spring. And at the rate I’m going, they’ll only last that long too!

*A big shout out to Liss, for hosting the giveaway; Brooke at Mrs. Press, for sending them over; and the rest of the team at Mrs. Press for creating such lush products!

pick me up

I’ve recently come down with a cold and have not been feeling all that flash. So it was with great delight that I received this package of goodies from Lauren of Your Only Blackswan earlier in the week. The amethyst pendant is exactly what I’ve been after, and the charm bracelet is only too cute. Apparently amethyst also has healing properties? I’m not sure about all that crystal/healing/energy stuff. Let’s just say it does. And maybe if I keep wearing it, it’ll heal me of this cold. In the meantime, I’m going to go brew a pot of tea and catch up on the latest season of Gossip Girl. Yay!

It used to be the case that I never won things. But my luck seems to be turning. Earlier this week I was notified by the lovely Becca Jane that I had won a $100 Shopbop giftcard. Needless to say I was quite surprised (it took me a while to remember I had even entered). Anyway, after much umm-ing and ahh-ing, I decided to purchase these two rings. The one on the left is the Bop Bijoux ‘pyramid’ ring and the one on the right is an Alex and Ani ‘space’ ring. I think they both complement each other in a space-y way. I was also impressed with Shopbop’s quick delivery (less than three days from the USA to AUS!) Shopbop, you were only too right, jewellery does make everything better!

ciao, vogue italia

I received a lovely little package in the mail today. My best friend Bron, who is currently traipsing around Europe, sent me a (fashionably) early birthday present in the form of the May issue of Vogue Italia. I can’t read Italian (bar a few messy translations), but the pictures more than make up for it. This package came at the perfect time because it means I’ll have something to pore over this weekend while I’m housebound with a cold. I know right, trust me to come down with a cold just in time for the long weekend. Boo. Despite being mildly ill, I’ll still be braving it out tonight to see Sex and The City 2 with the girls. There’s nothing that a bit of silliness with the girls can’t fix!

Also, just a bit of housekeeping, but if you check the sidebar you’ll notice that I’ve changed my email address. I’m just in the process of streamlining my accounts, so it would be lovely if you could update your address books and send any mail this new account. Thanks!
