Adding to my Christmas Collection


I had been home from work for almost two hours and I knew that I had to write a post for today. However, with no blog inspiration I had nothing to write. I was getting a bit worried and then I received some mail. As soon as I opened it I knew that I needed to write about this.

A few weeks ago Holly Martin ran a few competitions to promote her new book. I entered and I won! I was so excited because the gift was Christmas themed, like her book, and Christmas is my favourite time of the year.

The gift only took about 2 weeks to arrive which is not long at all considering how slow the postal service can be! I opened it up and found the cutest earrings as well as a note from Holly!


Can we just take a moment to appreciate how cute that stationery is?!

I wear earrings every day and I find Christmas earrings adorable! I start wearing Christmas earrings on the 1st of December and I wear them for the entire month. At the moment I only have a few pairs so I am always looking for new ones! These ones will be perfect for the upcoming Christmas season.


Now that I have shared the prize with you I would like to take a moment to speak about Holly Martin, the reason that I won this prize!

Holly Martin is one of the sweetest people on Twitter! She is a wonderful author and, apart from that, she interacts with people all the time! She has never not acknowledged one of my tweets!

If you would like to read a review that I wrote on one of her books, Christmas Under A Cranberry Sky, then you can have a look over here.

Have you ever read a book by Holly Martin before? Let me know what your favourite Christmas accessories are in the comments below!
