Win a set of Christian Lacroix Correspondence Cards


Christian Lacroix, Riviera Correspondence Cards, GiveawayI have always loved paper. As a teen I used to write letters to an assortment of penfriends all over the world and receiving a letter in return was often the highlight of my day. This was back in the 1980s when email, Facebook, Twitter or any other social media network for that matter had yet to be invented.

Fast forward more years than I care to remember and receiving a hand written letter or card is still a thing of beauty. Although, sadly it's becoming increasingly rare as social media and email take over as more efficient means of communication.

How many of us will remember an email or message via social media in years to come I wonder? Whereas a letter or card can be cherished forever and reminisced over whenever you feel the inclination to riffle through a box filled with memories.

Keeping in touch
While my daughters were away at university I wrote to each of them regularly. Letters were mostly filled with snippets of news from home, random doodles and nonsensical gossip. As Sophia is away working at Camp America for the summer, the tradition continues. Her weekly letter is eagerly anticipated and helps her feel not so very far away from home.

Win a set of Christian Lacroix correspondence cards
To inspire my readers to make the most of snail mail and make someone's day with a personalised note, I have a set of Christian Lacroix Riviera Correspondence cards to give away. These are perfect for informal invitations, short notes, or simply to say thank you.

  38. Last week - I had to write a difficult letter-card to a friend whose elderly mum had died. It was a reminder that with writing letters you do need to keep your hand in to reach the right tone. I had a really positive text reply though, so with that in mind, have vowed to write more, happier, cards and letters between now and Christmas.
