Package Pals!


When the lovely Gentri Lee first posted about Package Pals, I signed up right away!  For package pals, we were paired up with another blogger and after getting to know each other a bit, we sent each other little care packages.  I love sending and receiving packages in the mail and I loved getting to know my package pal- Cat of One Hand in my Pocket!  Here’s what I sent her:

Cat is from the UK and has never been to New York, so I thought it would be fun to send NYC to her in the form of these vintage inspired postcards!  Also, when I discovered that we shared a mutual love for nail polish, I knew I had to send her a bottle and I picked out this pretty purple color from Essie.  I also sent along one of the bows from my shop because I saw that she loves bows too!  Here’s what Cat sent me:

I just love the things she chose for me!  She sent me several lovely makeup items, including a pretty pink nail polish, a shimmery lipstick, and a glittery chocolate brown eye liner.  She also sent a delicate pink cameo necklace- it’s my first cameo piece and I’ve wanted one for a while!  Let’s not forget a classic UK symbol, the red double decker bus- so very cute!  Thank you so much Cat for all the thought and care you put into my package :D

I absolutely loved chatting with Cat and I want to thank Gentri Lee for organizing such a wonderful project!  If this sounds like something you’d like to do, don’t worry- Gentri Lee will be hosting another round in the future! =)

  • HOORAY! I love it all Nnenna! This is so fantastic. :) Thanks so much!

  • i love the idea of putting together packages and sending it to each other! this is so cute. what a fun thing to do! that nail polish is gorgeous!

  • This is such a cute idea! Sounds like a lot of fun putting together your own package and of course receiving your own package! I love receiving packages, parcels make me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. Unless their bills, no fun in that.

  • That shade of Essie Nail Polish that you sent Cat is a gorgeous color :) This is such a genius idea, it sounds like a really fun project <3 There's a new outfit post up on my blog and I'd really love to hear what you think of it. Feel free to stop by!
