Beauty Box ♥

Earlier this year, my sister did a blog post on her blog regarding her desire to do a drugstore beauty box swap with someone from a different country. You can read her post here. At this point, I was considering doing one myself because it has been something I had been interested in for quite a while. Josie received many responses, so I asked if I could do one instead of her. So, Josie e-mailed the lovely Alannah at Keddie's Closet and Alannah very kindly said she would be happy to swap with me! YEY! I had already visited Alannah's blog several times, and loved it, so it was nice to already know the person I was swapping with :)

We set a £30/$50 budget, and we exchanged many e-mails. Last week, just after I had posted Alannah's box, I received mine! Literally, I just don't even know if I can explain to you how excited I was to see it had arrived, and it arrived without any breakages, or it getting lost in the post!

Alannah sent me so many lovely items, complete with an adorable belated birthday card :)

I absolutely love everything that I was sent, and I cannot wait to send another one to Alannah this summer. I thoroughly enjoyed buying all of her items too, it gave me brilliant ideas of what I need to buy! I will definitely stay in contact with Alannah - as I said I will be sending her another one in summer - as I feel as though I have made a friend out of this experience too :)

Another note to add, both myself and Ellie really want to do this (again for me). So, if you are interested in doing this, please feel free to comment with your e-mail/e-mail me and I will let Ellie know too. I would love it so much to experience this again, with another person, so please don't be shy!

  4. Yay! I'm so glad everything got to you in one piece! I hope you like everything! I had such a great time doing this swap with you - I cannot wait for mine to arrive! :)

    P.s I know you mentioned you were in the market for a bottom lash mascara so that's more or less what the yellow CoverGirl mascara will be best suited for :)
