A package Mail Day

This week I receive a few packages - I actually got 2 of them today as I had to go to the post office earlier this morning to pick them up. Thus, I decided to make a special Package Mail Day =]

The first package I received was from one of my dearest penpal in Germany. Inside this package were a notebook and a CD. 

Here is a picture of the first page of the notebook :) 

My penpal had the greatest idea and we decided to make a "100 questions' notebook project". Each of us writes down 100 questions that they want to ask the other in a notebook and send it out to the other. I have sent her mine and she sent me hers so now what I have to do is decorate the notebook, answer the questions, illustrate my answers... I now have to unleash my inner creativity! I will also be doing this project with my sweet Twinnie. 
If any of you feel like they would love to participate in such a project with me, let me know! 
I will post pictures of the notebook I'm filling in at the moment when it's all done and my penpal has received it. I don't want to post any spoilers! 

Then, today, I went to the post office to pick up 2 packages. One, I was certain of what it was, the 2nd one, I wasn't sure but when I saw the little bow, I knew exactly where it was coming from! 

This very cute package comes from England, from a fellow Blogger who has 2 amazing blogs. Visit her at: Make my Day She actually totally made my day. A while ago, I won an amazing salt & pepper set in one of her giveaways and that's what's in the package. But, what I didn't know is that I also was chosen to receive some amazing ATCs that she created --> Have a look at her blog post!  This was a complete surprise to me. 

The other package was some make-up that I had ordered last weekend. I needed a new foundation and a new powder so I asked for recommendation to a friend and she told me the Healthy Mix from Bourjois would be perfect for me and I have tried it already and it indeed is perfect! Plus, it smells so nice!

Mail Day: February 2012

3 months later, I am finally starting with my "Mail Day" posts again. This one will be different as it's not a real update of all the letters that I have received in those months that I wasn't posting on my blog.

I will show you a picture of the letters that I recently received and are waiting for an answer. If you have sent me a letter and you can't see your letter in this picture, there might be a few reasons to this:

  1. I haven't received your letter yet
  2. Your letter is already answered and you haven't received it yet
  3. I'm currently answering your letter
  4. I don't know who you are and I don't know why there should be a letter from you on this post *lol* 
Here are letters from: Belgium, Ireland, USA, Canada and Colombia <3 

All of you should hear from me very soon as I am in a good writing mood at the moment :] 
And hopefully I'll post a new "Mail Day" again next week, stay tuned!

Adopt a Bee

Sustainability is a word that often comes in Companies speech and is part of every big company's commitment to making Earth a better place.

Would you like to adopt a bee? I have adopted mine this morning and her name is Lilly Bee.
I think this is a funny way to promote a great cause and show your support to a great voluntary organization.

You too can help save lives and build a sustainable future for inhabitants of Uganda. For each bee adopted, SAP will give money to Hives Saves Lives Africa.
