Candy Swap!

28 Oct

Hi! I’m back with a candy swap which is my very first. This swap is extra special because the goodies I got are from Sweden and most lollies are unfamiliar to me.

Thanks, Zeruda for doing a swap with me. Hope you also liked the goodies I got you.ย Hope we can have another swap next time ๐Ÿ™‚

(Belated) Happy New Year!

27 Jan

Hi everyone! I’m back ๐Ÿ˜Š I know I have been MIA for the longest time. Last year have been eventful which I can sum up in two events: I wasn’t well on the first six months and when I got well I moved to a new job. And six months onward… my new endeavour keeps me busy all the time.

Anyway, I really miss blogging and sharing my simple joys here. Hope you’re still support me like before.

Sharing this photo to remind us how to live well each day.
Thanks again and cheers ๐Ÿ˜Š!

International Makeup Swap – Thailand/ France

24 Jun

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share with you the package I recently received.

Sonam, my new friend from France, messaged me more than a month ago and asked me if I will be interested for a swap. Since I haven’t done any swap from France yet, I willingly agreed. We have exchanged e-mails getting to know more each other and finding out what each of us like. Like with my other swaps, we also did not set any price/ amount of goodies we will send each other.

Before I show you what products I got, I would like to send my appreciation and thanks to Sonam for being so nice and generous. I’m really happy to know you and become your new friend ๐Ÿ™‚

So let’s take a peek of what’s inside the box…

Thanks again, Sonam for all these wonderful goodies. I received so much from you! I actually had no idea what she sent me because I told her I want to be surprised ๐Ÿ™‚ Some items may have broken and spilled but it’s not really a problem because I can still use them all. I’ll certainly enjoy using and playing with them.

She hasn’t received my package yet ๐Ÿ˜ฆ even if I sent it a week earlier. I hope she gets it this week and that she likes what I got her. I had fun shopping for her.

Update:ย Her package was sent back to me. I had to phone La Poste in France and ask them about the whereabouts of the package and I was told it has to be returned since it was not picked up at the post office when my friend did not get any claim stub at all. As much as I want to complain I can’t anymore as the package was on transit. To cut the long story short, I resend the package via EMS and she FINALLY got it after so much drama. If you want to see what I got her, check out Sonam’s blog entry here.

Like I said in my previous swap posts, aside from receiving goodies that are not locally available, making new friends from different parts of the world is what excites me the most! I’m happy to have made a new friend again.

Have you tried doing a swap? Care to share your experience?

Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚
