Secret Santa with Figleaves



Before I start this post, can I just make an excuse about the photography? Has anyone ever tried to make a dressing gown look good in a picture? Well don’t bother its impossible.

Way back in October I was contacted by the lovely people over at Figleaves about being part of a Secret Santa game with a few fellow bloggers. Obviously I couldn’t resist, who doesn’t love giving (and receiving) gifts? It was all in aid of their new online magazine which launched this month.


As a website selling predominantly lingerie, I set about trying to find the perfect set of underwear that wasn’t too saucy (that would be weird).  I settled on a pretty soft lace bra with embroidered detail that came with matching pants, convinced that my chosen blogger was going to love it.

So this is when my first shock came, the pants were a thong. Now, I’m not dissing the thong here, if you like thongs, then good for you, I’m just saying that it’s probably not the best thing to gift someone you’ve never actually met before. Regardless, I wrapped it up and took the pictures for the magazine then sent it off to said blogger.

Second shock – when the magazine came out. There were beautiful pictures of everyones gifts they’d brought and the game was that when you got your’s you had to guess who had picked it. Looking through the pictures desperately mine stood out like a sore bloody thumb. Cute dressing gowns, check, pyjamas, check, underwear? Nope, just me!

All I can do now is sit here and wait of the blogger to receive her thong and hang my head in shame. You never know, maybe she likes thongs? From random people?


Anyway, Robyn from Phases of Robyn was my secret santa and she was incredible! I got the parcel when I was in my full flu/bed bound phase so there’s literally nothing more that I could have wished for than a soft and fluffy dressing gown! Well done Robyn, you da best.

    I’m sure the blogger who was your secret santa would have loved it, although I know what you mean about gifting a stranger a thong. Your dressing gown looks lovely and cosy, what a great gift. Li x
