Pamper Swap

With some trepidation, I put my name down for Michela's Pamper Swap. It is only the second swap that I have done - I get a bit scared by them (don't ask me why!). Anyway, I was delighted to be paired with a blogger that I hadn't met before - Juanita. This meant that I had a whole new blog to discover! Juanita is from Singapore but lives in Switzerland and she has a great blog, so why not pop over and introduce yourself - tell her Diane sent you. I posted my parcel to Juanita yesterday, but her gift for me arrived today. Everything was packaged so beautifully - with a smattering of hearts too. She had also included something for the Dancing Queen.

The parcel contained some fab herbal teas - ones that I haven't tried before. Some gorgeous fragrance burning sticks, a recipe book, but best of all, a wonderful pair of Juanita's earrings and a necklace. I am wearing them as I type. They are really lovely. I wear earrings all the time - I feel naked without earrings and lippy!!!
The package for the DQ contained some funky badges that she absolutely loves.

Thanks again Juanita - you made my day!
And can I just say a very big well done to Michela for orchestrating such a well organised swap!

What a lovely parcel :-) I know what you mean, I have only just started blogging but think I would be so nervous doing a swap, I get worried enough buying people pressies hoping they will like them :-o

Speak of the devil! :)

So relieved that my mail got to you well. Your pictures make the things far better than I remembered them :)

Hey, so I've got a friend of yours pop over to my blog for a visit! Yay for Diane!

Yay for Michela too, for mediating this fuss-free swap; yes it has restored my faith in bloggers, and isn't it nice your 2nd swap has rode out smoothly? :)

Keep in touch!
