My swap package is here - woop woop!

It came faster than I expected, so much so that my camera battery was dead!  Cue over an hour of anxiously trying not to open the box before the camera was ready to capture the moment!

Kaitlyn I'm going to email you as soon as I finish this - you're such a sweetie.  I love the handmade card, the beautiful wrapping and everything you sent.  You got me everything I asked for and some absolutely fab surprises too, thank you so much! 

So here are the pictures of my goodies!  I'll have plenty to get reviewing over the coming weeks!

Pretty packaging awaits inside the mailing box!

The gorgeous handmade card and envelope

Two packages to unwrap - double excitement!

The lid's open... I'm in!

Some things I asked for - Tressemme waterless foam shampoo, Mint Julep masque, Lash blast mascara and Crest 3D whitestrips.  Also, chosen by Kaitlyn, a gorgeous smelling Sephora shower gel.

Sorry for the blurry pic, was too excited to focus properly! Bumpits - can't wait to try these!  I think I might have seen them in the UK now on those JML adverts but I thought they'd probably be cheaper and easier to get in the US.  Amy Winehouse hair here I come!  Also a Crest 3D white toothpaste Kaitlyn picked out to go with my whitening kit - it says it can remove 90% of stains in 14 days - cannot wait to try that!  Plus a really cute make-up bag chosen by the lovely Kaitlyn.

Onto the make-up!  Seche Vite top coat which I asked for.  There are so many mixed reviews on this but thought I needed to try it for myself as I'm a 24hr chipper!  Everything else here Kaitlyn picked out for me.  I really like purple so the nail varnish looks lovely - I love Sephora stuff and wish we had it here in the UK.  And as for the lipsticks, I could have picked those colour out for myself they are so me. I've already done a little swatching... well it would be rude not to!  I was a little unsure about the black and white NYX pencils, but Kaitlyn wrote me a lovely note explaining they're what she uses to create a smokey eye.  I'm rubbish at getting the smokey look (as opposed to the "I've been up all night rubbing my eyes" look) so these will be fab, just need a tutorial on using them!  I also got even more very kind extras, some cute earrings and mini nail files -  I always forget to keep a file in my bag for on the go chips, problem solved!

And finally... the real treasure!  It all looks so yummy!  I'm having a Twilight night in with the girls on Friday night, so these will definately be coming out after dinner!  They'll be so excited.  Peanut butter M&Ms are one of my fave US candies and I remember first having those nerds when I went to Florida when I was 11 =)

Aren't I a lucky girlie?  Kaitlyn you have been so completely fab to swap with, I really hope you love everything I've sent you too!  Must dash, I have lots of new toys to play with =)


  1. yay! so glad you love everything!

    the jumbo pencils do take some getting used to (just play with them in your free time, there's plenty of youtube tutorials too.) but I know love them and have 6 of the 40 colors. hah.

    is all the candy unavailable in the uk? hope so!

    hopefully my package will be here tomorrow!

  2. So I saw your Blog. I wanted to invite you to follow my blog. Where I developed the idea for "Featured Followers by Elle © " This is how I promote all my followers. Check out my blog @ www.edkdolce.blogspot.com to find out more!

  3. Kaitlyn - no I don't think we get any of it here. Possibly the small nerds, but I don't think they're the same flavours xx

  4. I have the bumpits, I got them cheap on ebay. Haven't really managed to get them looking good though, so if you do, please share! My mums comment was, 'You look like you are on hollyoaks' Maybe that was the look I was going for!

    Anna x


  5. hahaha @anna! I wouldn't mind looking like I'm off Hollyoaks, they're all really hot! If I can make it look anything less than mega sh*t I'll post pictures!

  6. You got some amazing goodies! I really want to try Seche Vite but its so expensive here! I also want to try some Marshmallow Fluff! Think I might have to take a trip to America ;)

  7. I've tagged you on my blog :)

  8. Wow, that is one impressive package! I would be so ridiculously excited receiving that in the post & opening it all up - wow :)
