❤ Day Eight ❤
Blogging about an early Christmas present from a fellow blogger friend today :)
Ellie from Ellalogy is one of the first friends I "met" when I started blogging. I stumbled upon her blog and quickly fell in love with it. My favorite Ellalogy posts are her heartwarming diary posts and her sweet & simple outfits of the day. I feel like we share similar tastes in beauty products, so much that I somehow end up loving almost every product she mentions. And on top of that, she's a really sweet girl that I've gotten to know as friend over the past few months of blog comment convos, and emailing back and forth. So when Ellie suggested doing a swap I of course said "yes":)
We were really excited about this swap because 1. it's our first swap (ever!), and 2. we are able to send products that the other person probably doesn't easily have access to (Ellie lives in the US, while I'm in Hong Kong). To make shopping for the swap a bit easier, we decided to focus our goodies on 5 categories - skincare, makeup, accessories, home goods and snacks.
So here is my lovely bundle of goodies from Ellie. I literally squealed as I tore open the package - Ellie chose the perfect mix of products for me! Everything was so nicely packed into the box & makeup pouch that she got me, I was beyond impressed. (Ellie - I really should take notes from you on how to pack a box of swap products...! *bashful smile*)
Ellie sent me:
Forever 21 cosmetic pouch
Forever 21 pocket mirror
Bath & Body Works lavender vanilla Candle
EOS lip balm
Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer
Forever 21 flower bracelet
Maybelline BB Cream
Wet N Wild eyeshadow palette in "Comfort Zone"
A lovely chocolate treat
A sweet card
The package felt like a little slice of home... ohhh how I missed you Bath & Body Works! I've been burning the candle almost every day since I got the package. And Ellie was also sweet enough to send me the Comfort Zone eyeshadow palette that I blogged about back in September... I can't believe she remembered!
Check out Ellie's blog to find out what I sent her :)
Ellie - thank you so much for all these goodies... I LOVE them! Swaps around Christmas time are the best aren't they? I hope you liked everything I sent you too :) May this be the start to much more "blogger pen pal" mail to come! x
5 days till Christmas!
