A while ago Money Supermarket got in touch with me and lots of other bloggers around the UK. They had an offer for us. One I couldn't refuse.
It was asked of me whether I'd want to take part in a pretty big Secret Santa challenge. Budget themed. It's great that so many businesses are thinking of our budgets and spenditure this year - more of this please?
Money Supermarket gave each of us a whopping £25 to spend on our Secret Santa. It clearly stated we were not to exceed that limit unless we wanted to cover extra postage. Now, me being the die hard budget fiend that I am thought ''whoop! that's LOADS'' and it is. I couldn't wait to start shopping for whomever my Secret Santa turned out to be.
The days ticked by and then the name came over.
My Secret Santa is Danielle from A Blog From Blackpool.
I've read so much about Danielle! I have pored over pictures of her lust lists, I've tried to search her bedroom (shown behind some of her stylish OOTD pics), I've read and re read so many posts I *think* I managed to get a good feel of who she is. It helped that Money Supermarket paired us so incredibly well. We've even both lost weight through doing Slimming World! And we immediately, it seems, starting following each other on Twitter. I'm not sure that particularly helped in present picking... Danielle doesn't give much away ;)
Now, I can't tell you what I got Danielle, you'll have to wait for her reveal post to see but I can tell you I managed to get her a few wee bits and pieces. 2 are useful, 1 (hopefully) is fun and the last is magic (kinda) oooooOOOoooo cryptic! There is 1 of the presents I'm slightly concerned she may already have but I took a chance and I'm sticking with it!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge and I absolutely loved getting to know Danielle through her blog and if you'd like to have a nosy at her scribblings you can do so by following this link:
She is all kinds of adorable!
So, for now, you can call me Santa ;)
