Hi guys!
Me and Ariel from did two beauty swaps last year when I had my old blog, we did one in the summertime and one at Christmas and I was so excited to do another Christmas swap this year! If you don't know what beauty a swap is, it's when two bloggers (usually from different countries) pick out beauty items for eachother and send them over for them to try out. It's great because it gives you an opportunity to try out brands that you can't get in your own country. For example, Ariel sends me a CoverGirl mascara in every swap because it's my absolute favourite and you can't get it here!
In this package Ariel sent me;
Popping Corn (intrigued!)
Essence Nail Polish in Chic Reloaded
Essence Stay All Day Eyeshadow in Coppy Right
NYX Cream Blush in Boho Chic (prettiest colour EVER)
Bath and Bodyworks PocketBac in Apple Wreath
Bath and Bodyworks Shower Gel in Pink Sugar Plum (Just in time, I've just finished LUSH Snow Fairy, but I actually think Pink Sugarplum smells better! I'll be so sad when this runs out!)
NYX Jumbo Shadow Pencil in Milk
Covergirl Lashblast Mascara
Physicians Formula Plumping Palette in Browns (I'm usually scared of brown shades but these are stunning, they're pretty much all 'your lips but better' shades)
Physicians Formula Baked Wet or Dry Shadows in Ginger Snap

She also included a couple of things for my twin sister Hannah, which was SO sweet of her. Also, how cute is the wrapping paper she used? I'm such a sucker for Hello Kitty - so cute! I think Ariel may be my Canadian twin, she always seems to pick out perfect items for me. Thanks so much Ariel!

I'll definitely do some full reviews, let me know if there's anything you'd particuarly like me to review.
Definitely check out Ariel's blog and send her some love!



  1. This is such a good idea! I may have to start hunting for my own little blogger to do a swap with!
