Wow, I have been slacking. The last Not Another Bill post I made was for August’s surprise, and the last three months have just got away from me.
So September. September was my least favourite NAB gift of all time and I actually asked them if I could send it back – NAB were very gracious and offered to send something different, but I forgot to take it to the post office. Oops.
Anyway, this is how the gift currently looks – a (quite hideous) Dalmatian stapler from Anthropologie. I really really dislike it, which is why it’s still in the box. If anyone wants it, give me a shout. Please.
October was much more up my street – a beautiful rose gold ring from designer Matthew Calvin. Part of his Meteorite collection, it’s such a delicate piece, and really unusual. I’ve already wishlisted most of his items.
Which brings me to November, and the gift that I picked up from the post office yesterday. What looks like a bit of a random selection from Meraki (Danish – WOO!) makes a bit more sense once you read the leaflet – what they’re calling an apothecary set for some ‘me time’, and perhaps a bit of hygge. A lovely smelling sesame scrub soap, a jasmine and sandalwood candle – currently burning away on my coffee table – and a retro enamel bowl which I’m going to use for the soap.
I haven’t heard of Meraki before, so it’s nice to have yet another brand to look out for when I’m in Copenhagen next month.
