Essex, Food and Local Travel with an Alternative Twist!

Sharing A Smile *

When you receive an email from a brand asking you if you want to be secretly paired up with another blogger and send each other gifts, you obviously say yes! And this is exactly what happened when Getting Personal dropped us an email of that nature!

I chose to gift the lovely Lottie L’amour and after lots of stalking, I wandered over to the Getting Personal website and got picking! After some careful consideration and many mind changes I sent her these…


I’m a sucker for giving gifts with names on, as I love receiving them myself so I chose the personalised cup, and went with a few sassy fashion choices as I felt they would suit Lottie down to the ground! And the best bit of it all, I think she really enjoyed them!

We then received a super awesome parcel back from Kellie, Big Fashionista, and she pretty much nailed it! I was so excited to open this parcel that it took me so long to get into it, poor Mike trying to film my excitement…

But when I did, we were bloody impressed!


She had chosen two of our favourite things, food & travel, and obviously tapped into the fact that we do a lot of fitness but prefer eating!

The scratch map is going to take pride of place in our living room, once I get a frame, and update it to where ever we travel together as a lovely keepsake! The travel pad is going to contain all of our plans, and we are well into planning a few trips right now, so it arrived just at the right time! I’m one of those people that plan trips with military precision so we don’t miss a thing. Luckily Mike leaves me to it and doesn’t complain about it… yet!

 The gym bag has come in super handy as we’ve started training over the park so we can chuck in all the bits we need and I still look super stylish! I’m also going to start using the gym near my office so this will be mega handy for on the train! I’ve already had a few comments on it!

The note Kellie popped in with the parcel was great too, and I’m happy to say, ‘Kellie, you’re not a bad person, you did good. Really good!’

A huge thanks to Getting Personal for making this happen, I loved taking part and will be back to your website for gifts for friends very shortly!
