A Box of Love from England

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I believe one of the best things about being a blogger is "meeting" like-minded fellow bloggers and readers whom I would probably never meet if it weren't for my blog. My blogger friend, Ashi,  is one of those people to me. I often tell her that if we knew each other in "real life" we would be best friends. You know, hanging out and sipping chai all the time. We had this uncanny connection from the get-go.  She's kind, humble, sincere, funny and smart. Plus, I'm pretty sure she has a cool British accent. Who wouldn't want a best friend like her? While I was away in Korea she went through all the trouble to send me this parcel and I was overjoyed to receive it when I returned from my trip. I love snail mail! 



Wanna find out what's in this candy cane reminiscent parcel?



A beaded floral jewellery box filled with gifts and Thorntons chocolates! If I were to package Ashi's sweetness it would probably look a little like this.



A card with a lovely message.



Ashi went above and beyond with these necklaces and rings. I love them so much!
Ashi, you're either really good at telling what I like or you have great taste. I say... both! ;)


As much as I love the chocolates and the above accessories, my favourite gifts are of course from Roshni



What's Roshni, you ask? Roshni means 'light' in Persian and Bengali. It's also Ashi's very own etsy shop (masha Allah).



Roshni custom-made handmade notebooks


Roshni custom-made peacock feather necklace. The chain is very long so it's perfect for hijabis.



Roshni custom-made Bollywood style thread bangles



Roshni Aisha Jade Lace Drops necklace


All the beautiful custom-made items in this post are not available in the etsy shop (yet... I hope!) but I think Roshni is awesome because not only are the products super pretty, they're also reasonably priced. I can see Ashi takes custom-made orders as well. She's really creative, right? Well, I think you ought to know she's also a Law graduate. The perfect woman, much? *sigh*

I'm feeling pretty lucky right now. I always receive the sweetest presents from my blogger friends but the best and most meaningful gift of all is their friendship, for sure. Alhamdulillah. 

Thank you, Ashi, for bringing 'roshni' in my life.

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed. ~ Khalil Gibran 



(I couldn't wait to use the notebook!)
