We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...... I have finally stopped being a little Grinch and gotten into the Christmas spirit. Not sure what started this joyful attitude, but I can assure you that the Moneysupermarket: Secret Santa Challenge definitely had something to do with it.
What's the Moneysupermarket Secret Santa challenge you ask? well about a month ago Moneysupermarket chose a handful of bloggers to participate in a Secret Santa challenge for bloggers. We were paired up with another blogger, and given the challenge to buy a gift which was no more than £25! If you've been following me for a while you know that I love a challenge, so I snapped up the chance to be involved.
I was paired up with Tara, one half of the duo of the infamous The Style Rawr! I was pretty excited when I got Tara as I have been reading her blog for some time now. At first, I wasn't sure how I would approach this challenge. It would be easy to just buy a nice gift for £25 but I wanted to create a concept with my gift and a storyline, which fit in with the presents. Also I wanted to get Tara something she liked (hopefully). Scouring the highstreet for presents under £25 was hard,but I just made it by spending £24.84 on all of the presents you see before you.
I was chuffed and surprised when I saw how much effort Tara went to with her present in her post. It was good to know that shared some similarities like a love for Leopard Print! So Tara, your present is in the post and I hope you like your presents as it was fun coming up with the concept! I look forward to receiving yours too :)
