It is no secret to most people who know me know that I love giving gifts. I love the process of thinking of something that will make someone smile and either going out and buying it, or sitting at home and creating a little special something for someone special.
This year I got to participate in a fun blogger secret santa from the incredible bgbcommunity that I belong to, and I have to admit that it was a ton of fun to go out and plan a little christmas gift for a girl out there in the world that I had never met before.
I also was SUPER excited when I saw that I received my secret santa package from Emilie from Emilie Eats who has become a new blogging friend via instagram! Her instagram photos always make me hungry and I have no doubt in my mind that this girl is going to do big things in the healthy living blogging world over the coming years. We also share a love for living authentically and following a healthy plant based way of living, so it was really special to receive this gift from someone I already have really come to respect. Emilie blogs about delicious healthy, plant based foods and makes one killer granola!
Emilie is also a college girl from Louisiana, which automatically makes me even more impressed by her ability to create incredible food photos and recipes all while in college. To all the college bloggers out there I don't know how you do it!
Inside my box Emilie sent my some adorable DIY gifts, which I really appreciated because they are my absolute favorite gifts to receive. Emilie really went to town and made me homemade gluten free banana granola (I may have eaten the entire tin in 3 days...), homemade peppermint scrub, and a travel inspired painting. She also included some of my favorite toasted coconut chips (how did she know!), a delicious smelling candle, larabars, and an adorable mug to further feed my new found obsession with almond milk cappuccinos.
I really want to thank Emilie for all of my lovely gifts, which I have been thoroughly enjoying and to the incredible Georgie and Christina who run the BBG Community for organizing this fun gift exchange.
