I spent the first seven years of my life in a communist country. Many things that we considered cool or even magical where abroad. Getting a package from a foreign country even if it was thoroughly checked by customs was a huge event!
Now with online ordering and traveling made easier this excitement of receiving a package has changed… or has it?!
I still see some things as “modern treats” of the Western world and eye brow products are among them. None of my friends back in Hungary use special gels to make their eye brows look more flattering.
When Beth was posting about her make-up and I saw the eye brow gel she uses, I felt the little girl inside me getting excited about someone else’s lovely, grown-up stuff.
Beth made my little girl dream come true. She ordered the gel for me to her address (they do not ship to Thailand) and went to the post office to mail it to me. But before she sent my package oversea, she asked a friend of hers to draw a picture of my husband, Zoárd and I by showing her friend a photo of us. She also slipped a hand-written card in to the package (which was not allowed during communism in Hungary – you had to send written letters separately ).
You must be pretty curious about Beth by now. Beth’s blog is called Beauty in Beta and she just posted about the package I sent her from Thailand.
I would love to show you a few pictures of the night I opened the package from Beth. I am warning you our room has a yellow vibe at night time…
Have you done anything similar?
