RAK Lovelies x

As most of you will have probably read on the other girls blog posts, the lovely Kelly over at Bakes, Beauty and Blog came up with the idea of RAK. Over to Kelly -

"I know how much we all like getting our parcels of goodies from the postman and I know some are currently going though spending ban and p10p so I thought I would try and start a Random Act of Kindness group.  I have done this before and it worked really well.  

So the idea is we form a group I'm thinking about 5 to start off with and then we can build it up if we get more interest."

RAK stands for Random Act of Kindness and the idea was to send a parcel to each person with the limit of £2. When I read Kelly's post, I commented straight away as I thought it was such a lovely thing to be a part of. £2 isn't a great amount of money these days but everyone did so well and we all got some lovely goodies out of it :) and some lovely notes.

The first of my RAK gifts came from Dee over at Confessions of a Makeupaholic. The parcel contained a beautiful charm bracelet and two charms, also some sweeties :) She did extremely well with the budget and I absolutely love the charms, they are so cute.

The second parcel I received was from Leanne over at A Slice of my life. Leanne had sent me a nail varnish from Technic in Strawberries and Cream, a bracelet and an aero lamb (YUM) , I have yet to try the nail varnish but have worn the bracelet.. its so pretty. She also included a Welsh cake which I thought was really thoughtful and I had never tried one before.. they are yummy :) 

My third parcel was from Kelly over at Bakes, Beauty & Blog who had organised RAK :) Kelly had sent an eye liner in Gold Nugget and an eye shadow in Shade 4 from MUA, and also a Malteasers bunny (YUM). I am excited to try the eye shadow and eye liner as its MUA and I have yet to try any of their stuff. 

My fourth was from Rachel from Band of Blushers.  Rachel had sent me a lovely Sparkle Eye Dust in Karat Rose from NYC from . I have yet to try it but will be doing very soon. I love the pot it comes in with a little brush built in the lid, very cute. 

I am afraid the sweets and chocolates have not been included in the photos as these parcels arrived around the same time lent had finished, in which I had given up sweets and chocolate. So they were devoured pretty much as soon as the parcels had been opened, they were very well received :)

As I had mentioned in the post before this I have been having a very tough time so this RAK was the perfect pick me up. It really cheered me up, seeing that people I haven't met before can be so generous and thoughtful. A big thank you to the girls for my lovely goodies, they cheered me up in a big way and I hope you all liked your gifts. Just goes to show you don't have to spend loads to make someone feel good :)
