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 🙂

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 🙂 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 😦 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: 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! 🙂

Makeup & Goodies Swap/ Haul from the US

10 Apr

A mountain (or hill?) of surprises!

Hi everyone! I want to share with you another swap I made from the US. Right at the time when Tiny T of ChromaMeSilly and I were planning to do a makeup swap, another lovely lady (Maria) from the US messaged me if we can do a swap together. Since I like shopping for friends and receiving surprises not to mention the many American brands that are unavailable here, I gladly agreed. After many e-mails of discovering more about each other, we finally did our swap.

I got my package a few days ago and I was so ecstatic. Maria packed them all so beautifully and I was a little embarrassed with the way I just bubble wrapped her goodies. Anyway, on to the products I got!

Lollies!

Let me start with the lollies: Mike and Ike Tropical Typhoon candies and Lemonhead & Friends Jellies. We don’t have these awesome treats here 🙂 My sweet tooth can’t resist them all but I gladly shared them with my friends 🙂

 I’m really so happy and thankful for all the goodies she sent me! I haven’t really used most of the products I got because I’m still in the stage of just admiring them in their pristine condition. I know it’s kinda weird of me 🙂

Like what I mentioned before, I like doing makeup swaps not only for the new products I get which are unavailable in my country but more importantly, I like meeting new friends and having someone to share common interests with.

Maria doesn’t keep a blog but she kindly sent me a picture of some of the goodies I sent her 🙂

Goodies from moi 😉
