Blogging By Mail



Stephanie over at Dispensing Happiness is holding a blogging event at the moment, called Blogging my Mail. We all signed up and then received emails notifying us to whom we have to send parcel to and then wait for ours to turn up. To be honest, I had kinda forgotten about it as it had been a little while. And, let me tell you she is well and truly dispensing happiness ladies and gentlemen - this week I came home after a miserable day at the office to find a huge parcel from the States, all for me! Check it out! Aren't I a lucky girl? (Hey, yes I'm still a girl, I'm 30 at the end of this year and I'm going to abuse that term well and truly till then!)

My parcel came from a blogger I hadn't come across yet, Angel who has a gorgeous site called Angel's Bento Box. Two things have come out of this event, one I have a new friend and blog I will be regularly keeping an eye on and two, I have a whole basket fully of goodies! Actually, make it three cos goddamn did all this make me grin from ear to ear and forget all about my horrendous day!

Angel spoilt me - I got kitten embossing pages, Victorian stationery thats so pretty, sweet stickers, sparkly green sprinkles in Angel's fav colour green, tea, a candle in my favourite scent, cinnamon, bento boxes, silicone cups that I will find countless uses for I'm sure, miniature cookie cutters and to top it off some yummy US chocolates, like Reese's Cups which we can't get here.

I am so spoilt!! Thank you very very very much to the two ladies, I've never met before, Angel and Stephanie at the Dispensing Happiness. I can't wait to see how my parcel is received.

Dude You guys don't have reeses cups? That is possibly the saddest thing I've ever heard about Australia!

Yep! Peanut Butter + chocolate is a real American thing, I believe. We have other great candy you don't tho, like Tim Tams and Cherry Ripes. I'd possibly trade them for Reese's though...

Aren't those PB cups delicious. That combination of sweet and salty all in one bite. It's a wonder they've not caught on in NZ and Oz. Have you tried Reeses pieces? They're like peanut butter smarties and you sometimes see them here. If you like that flavour combo check out Lis's peanut butter cheesecake on her blog La Mia Cucina.
