๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

So it looks like unicorn mail is taking over the Party Thread.  A while back @Mcakes suggested to me that it should have it's own thread. I also saw a few people mention it too since then.  Well I think it's time because the love is overflowing and everyone likes to see an unboxing! I know it's one of my favorite parts of BT. 

 

๐Ÿ–ค๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿ–ค Post your unicorn mail here!!!! ๐Ÿ–ค๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿ–ค

Unicorn Mail: A random act of kindness. Essentially a gift/token of appreciation/pick me up/treat received from a fellow member of the community.

@lmaster love all the love you are getting with the Unicorn mail. @faeriegirl did such a great job selecting perfect products for you. 

Re: ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

Thank you @SportyGirly125 I'm just so taken aback by @faeriegirl s generosity

Re: ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

So little did I know that when I was planning to surprise @faeriegirl with some mail, she was also shipping me a package! Knowing how kind and sweet she is, I was so excited to get my mail today. Of course I had an HOA meeting that delayed me from posting but that didn't stop me from opening it in a hurry before I left.

 

Look at the detail in just her card..she knows how to add special touches:

look at that cute little unicorn - perfect for unicorn mail!look at that cute little unicorn - perfect for unicorn mail!

But inside the box was something even sweeter:

But wait there's more in the bag:

I'm not surprised but yet I am. This is above and beyond and so many things I love or want to try. The DevaCurl WAVE MAKERโ„ข Touchable Texture Whip

has been doing great for me - I just started using it in May. I'm happy to have these extra ones. I haven't tried the oil but can't wait.

 

Also I'm really curious about the Supergoop sunscreen. And so many new to me eye masks. Wow, just wow! Thanks again @faeriegirl, I will enjoy all of this so much. And I've already eaten some chocolate! ๐Ÿ™‚

Awww this is so nice!!! Great mail day!!! @ShortErica 

Re: ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

Unicorn mail is the best type of snail mail @veronika23!

Re: ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

It sure is!!! ๐Ÿ˜„ @ShortErica 

Re: ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

@veronika23 I see you started the thread so I was curious about how and when did the unicorn mail concept come up on BIC? Or is it from before when it was..Beauty Talk? Whoever started this idea has created so much sharing and joy.

Re: ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

@ShortErica  I think this might have started when it was BT and we used to post them in the party thread... but it got so busy in there that @Mcakes  suggested that we should have a dedicated thread for it.  Pretty sure I was the one who came up with the name which is why I started the thread... I am definitely the one who posted it on the urban dictionary website. ๐Ÿ˜„  I know in general people have always been nice and helpful on the forum and sent each other stuff but I don't think it was always posted. All I can really remember is that we had a discussion in the party thread and I had suggested a random act of kindness gift exchange... I didn't host it though because I didn't know elfster. I think after that we really saw more packages sent and it became unicorn mail???? I can't really remember though if it was after that or some were sent prior to that as well.  I also remember sending out a lot of Canadian treat boxes with coffee crisps because we were always talking about it and people wanted to know what it tasted like.  I think that came about after I had an exchange of coffee crisps and oreos with @pixiedust2. That was probably back in late 2016 or around that time. It's really hard to remember how it really came about but I know I was one of the people who started it. Back in like 2013-2014 (I think) when it was BT we used to celebrate people's achievements and stuff a lot and there was a lot of life and fun in the community but the section of the community that had that fun was removed from the main feed (long story) so people kinda forgot about it. So when I became more active again I felt something was missing... the community didn't have that fun friendly vibe anymore so I decided to  start the party thread and made sure it would show on the main feed. I felt the community was missing some life and you couldn't really build relationships like we used to. It felt cold to be honest. So I thought a thread where it's more fun and relaxed could help build those relationships... plus sometimes for new members it can be intimidating to post in a beauty community... but if you post a joke it's not that bad right? So the party thread was meant for like an ice-breaker, celebrate people's achievements (community related or not) and say thank you to helpful members of the community... so I think that might also have something to do with the unicorn mail... if that make sense. I tried going back in the Party thread to get some dates but the thread is messed up and not in order so there is no way I can find the posts I am thinking about that might situate me better with dates and stuff for this. As you can see I've been here for a long a** time. ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐Ÿ˜„

*waves* and @veronika23  still surprises me with giant boxes of Coffee Crisp and skull goodies! Just out of the blue. Sheโ€™s the best Unicorn mailer out there โค๏ธ

Re: ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

Awwww you are too sweet!!!! @pixiedust2 ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

Re: ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

I love this @veronika23! As a newbie, I'm curious about how things have changed over time and you've given a great recap. I also love that you added it to urban dictionary. @missjeanie sent me coffee crisps! It's amazing that this has continued for years and I hope it stays around for many more to come. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ“ฆ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆ

Things have definitely changed a lot...   Hahaha yeah I thought it would be fun to add it there. ๐Ÿ˜„ Did you like them?  Very popular in the community... kinda like the llamas are... they're also from the BT days.  It's fun that some stuff stuck around. ๐Ÿ™‚ @ShortErica
