Blog Swap!!!!

I meant to do this post ages ago, however I then managed to get the worst cold ever known to mankind and then be snowed under in uni work and meetings.  So I'm sorry to Holli that this has taken me so long to put together!  Hopefully it's worth the wait.

A little while ago I participated in something called a Blog Swap.  It was organised by the lovely Rachael over at Island Girl Insights.  I was paired with Holli, from Dragon Mommy, who sent me some awesome things!

Everything arrived in a cute little box with this lovely purple pouch inside!  There was a handwritten tag too which added a lovely personal touch.  I couldn't wait to open it and see what was inside!

Look at all those lovely goodies!!!  I'm so glad there were sweets in there too!  I have a massive sweet tooth.

Lets start with the sweets seeing as they were perched right at the top there.  These are some bubblegum flavoured bottles from River Island.  Bubblegum isn't a flavour I normally go for but these were lovely!!!  The sugar on the outisde added a nice sourness which complimented the super sweet bubblegum really well.

Last of the edible items is this adorable, teeny, tiny Lindt bunny.  Holli must have some telepathic powers or something, Lindt chocolate is my all time favourite!!  Especially if it's in bunny form.

Next up is this little face scrub!  I've not tried it out yet but it's just the sort of thing I'm bound to like.  I also have really dry skin so this should be perfect for me!

I also received this purple shatter nail polish!!  I love painting my nails, though I don't have much time to do it.  Shatter polishes are a quick way to make my nails look funky, except I've only had the black one until I got this!  It's from Barry M, my fave, and the number on the bottom is 322 (incase you were wondering).  I just couldn't wait to try it so I swatched it for you all over a couple of coats of Rose (086) from GOSH.

My penultimate item is this eye shadow from MUA.  I've never tried anything from this brand before, I'm not into make up that much.  It's a pale pink (I just suck at colour correcting photos, sorry) with a slight shimmer to it.  When applied it's quite sheer, perfect for me, and looks really beautiful and pearlescent.  Perfect to change up my everyday eyeshadows a little!

Last, but definitely not least, is this adorable owl necklace from River Island.  I don't know if you noticed but I happen to like owls a little bit!  I love the colours on the owl's body and it's big bejewelled eyes!  Definitely my new favourite necklace!

I would just like to say a big thank you to both Holli, for all of these wonderful things, and Rachael, for organising the blog swap in the first place!  You're both wonderful!  If you want to see what I sent to Holli then click here to go to her blog.
