It has begun!

Hey everyone!
As I have an even number of people signed up for the swap I have just finished assigning each of you to a partner, although I still need to email you all individually with your partners name and what their story is :D Unfortunately, as alot more of us Brits have signed up, not everybody who wanted a partner abroad has been able to have one. I really hope this is ok! But if anyone has a major issue with this then please email me and I'll see if there's anything i can do :)
Don't forget to communicate with your partner to get a better understanding as to the things they like and don't like, and also, for people posting abroad, remember to double check with your partner if anything can't be sent to them due to customs!
I am going to allow everybody 4 weeks until all of the packages need to be sent, so all packages should be posted by the 5th of June :). This should be more than enough time to build up a lovely package :D
I am also planning to set up a Flickr page for everybody to upload photo's of what you recieve ^_^ will post the link up here once it's all set up :D
Well off i pop to send out all of your emails :D let the fun begin!

Just to let you all know, I have now emailed all of you with your partners details :) if any of you have not recieved an email then please let me know! Also, if any body has any problems with any part of the swap, just email me and I'll do my best to help :) Hope you all have a wonderful time with this swap! Thank you all so much for joining in and being so lovely :)

Hey all! I'm going to have a little bit of a random post here, hoping to get a little advice etc from anyone who can offer it ^_^
OK, so here's my dilema. I'm currently on the hunt for a full time job for when I finish uni in the next couple of weeks. The first company I applied for, Dwell, is a lovely shop that specialises in contemporary furniture and home wares. They only have one position available that needs filling soon, and I have the opportunity to go for it. But on the other hand, another place I have applied for, The White Company, are currently building a new store in Nottingham, and are needing a whole team of staff. Because of this, they will take longer to get back to me before I get any interviews etc. I would so love to work for the white company, but am worried that if I turn down the job at dwell, then I might not get in to the white company. But at the same time, if i take the job at dwell, and then get offered a job at the white company, i'd be gutted! I know i'm getting way too caught up in all of this :P but any suggestions etc would be lovely :D Thank you! xxx

seen it, want it, neeeeeeeed it!

I just had to post up these wellies, i want them so bad! I spotted them last week in accessorize, but they didn't have any in my size! :( booo!!!

a new opportunity

Today I'm feeling pretty excited :) I've just recieved a phone call from my local Dwell store, who have invited me in for a trial day, to see if i would like a full time job there :) This will be my first full time job ever, as in a couple of weeks, I will no longer be a student!! Dwell's furniture is so lovely :) it'd be nice to work somewhere so pretty! But i have applied for a few other places too, so we'll have to see what my options are :)

On another note! I have been organising all of you lovely people's entries to the fairytale swap :D I have begun to pair up partners, however, not every option has enough people! And as i like to make sure everybody gets what they want, i am setting you all a mission :D I need to find one more person who only wants to post within the UK (although i'm happy to fill this spot :) ), but I also ideally need about 3 more people willing to post abroad, from outside of the UK :) there are alot of us brits ;) so if anybody has a friend who would like to get involved then send them this way :D

another day of loveliness

Huzzah and Hooray ^_^ about an hour ago my jolly postman stopped round to give me to mysterious little packages! The frst one I opened was from the ever so wonderful Kelly.

She sent me an adorable Cath Kidston keyring, to give my vespa key something pretty to team up with! Just look how good it looks when it's in action hehe!

My second package was actually an item I ordered from etsy a while ago ^_^

it is my very own, beautiful hand knitted panda toy!! I spotted these a while ago in the lovely Yoomii's etsy shop :).
She's made out of lovely soft cotton, and is looking forward to sitting amongst all of my other lttle panda's in my bedroom!

On another note, today and tomorrow I will be organising all information from the fairtytale swap, getting ready to assign partners! If anybody has missed any info etc, then I will contact you :) x

5 more days!

Hey everybody! There's only 5 days left until the fairy tale swap closes, and all of you are assigned to your partners! So let's see if we can have one final push to get all of your friends involved :) I will be posting who each person is partnered with on here, and also emailing each of you, so if anybody has not included their email address, then please either email me or post it on here :)
I hope you are all very excited! I know I am!!
