Merry Christmas friends!! I’m typing this on Christmas morning with donuts and hot chocolate in hand, procrastinating as always. This year two of my blogging friends, Abigail from Living The Gray Life and Cathleen from Classy Cathleen, put together a Blogger Secret Santa with more than 20 bloggers participating, and today’s the day we reveal our Secret Santas!
my Secret Santa is….
THE AMAZING ABIGAIL FROM LIVING THE GRAY LIFE!!!
The moment I opened the package and saw the coral and purple paper, I immediately knew who it was from. I was like, “ahhhh, I saw this in her vlog I’m the person she’s talking about!!!” (you can check out that video here). We almost met each other earlier this year at the Grace Hopper Celebration, but our schedules just didn’t match up and one of us was always busy! I’m so happy to call her one of my favorite blogging friends and someone I can always rant to about blogger drama or Instagram struggles, and hopefully 2017 we’ll finally meet!!
As for the gifts, Abigail totally nailed it! For one, the packaging was the cutest.
Probably my favorite things in this gift were the custom prints she made me! They’re going up on my bulletin board as soon as I’m back in Austin.
Okay, all the little notes on every gift were the best. I’ve been wanting a festive mug for years and this one is perfect for Instagram and the coffee I’m about to make!
I wish we were having cold winter nights right now, but it’s currently 72 degrees and humid 🙁 Either way, I’m super excited to dig into these teas! If y’all couldn’t tell yet, caffeine is a big part of my life.
Okay, this. I almost always get milk chocolate as a gift, because it’s the go to form of gift chocolate. But dark chocolate is the BEST and will always be my favorite. I’ve already gone through two of these and I need more asap.
If I were to pick one color that describes all college bloggers, it would be rose gold. I’m always down for more rose gold anything, and this stationery set matches my blog perfectly!!
Thank you so much Abigail!! For this gift and for organizing this whole thing! I love how it’s let so many bloggers from around the country connect, and it’s definitely brought us closer! I hope you have a fantastic New Years and here’s to a great 2017!
Happy holidays everyone!!
