Snail Mail {August}

For the last three months, I have been participating in something called The Snail Mail Collective. This is kinda like a pen pal program to help bloggers around the world meet each other and send out support to one another. The lovely Melyssa from The Nectar Collective and Chelsea from Lost in Travels have put this collective together. 

Each month you are paired up with someone from anywhere in the world and you get to spend a month  getting to know them via their blog and e-mail. At the end of the month, you are to send a postcard and a little gift to the other. 

For the month of August {yes, I know I'm behind}, I was paired with Nikki from The Delovely Details. I can describe Nikki in one word: Awesome. 

For real, she is awesome. You should go check out her blog and her etsy shop because both are completely great! 

August's theme was Under the Sea, and here is what I got in my Snail Mail package for the month. 

Everything in this package was perfect! The soap smells fantastic and makes our bathroom smell great! I love the starfish necklace, and if you read this post you will understand why. 
And the postcard was perfect! 

The postcard says "Let's go on an adventure." 

Ever since I can remember, my Abuela has been using that phrase. Whenever we were doing something crazy she just called it an adventure. If we were going the wrong way to our destination and were a little bit lost she would just say it's an adventure. Now my husband and I use the same exact phrase. LOVE IT! 

I am so happy I was paired up with Nikki, and if I'm ever in southern California I will be looking her up! 

For my package, I sent Nikki a wind chime with a water lily and fish on it. These are really popular here in Korea. {PS- Nikki you still owe me a picture of it!} 

The Snail Mail Collective is really a cool thing. Every month I have really enjoyed getting to know my partner. For September, I was paired with Cat from Cat on the Wall and I'll share my snail mail as soon as it gets in my hands! 


  1. I love this idea! I've heard about it for months but have yet to participate! As soon as life gets a little less crazy, I will!


    1. Snail Mail is a really great thing. I have done it for three months now and I have loved every single person that I have been paired up with! I hope to see you in the link ups one day!

  2. Alex. I FINALLY mailed your package. Please let me know when you get it! I hope you'll like everything!

    1. Cat- I'll be on the look out for it!!! Thanks.


Thanks for taking the time to comment- I appreciate and read each and every one of them. All replies will be in the comment section, please check back to read them!
