Hey guys! So today I received a package from my lovely blog friend and follower Chanel, known as @CutieCocoChanel on Twitter :) She is such a sweetie and we've had great chats on Twitter and although I haven't known her for that long, we've gotten along really well. I'm so glad to have gotten to know her!
Chanel was planning to give out Christmas cards so instead of just giving Christmas cards, this turned into a package swap. We decided to do a swap because she's from the UK and I'm from Australia. The things are quite different in these places, especially cosmetic items. I've povided her with some Aus-branded cosmetics and she has done the same with UK items. I was eagerly waiting for her package to arrive and although I didn't receive it before Christmas, I'm just grateful for receiving it finally =]
So here it is:
Such a cute card! Hello Kitty ♥
I love the way she folded this mini letter!
More writing on the inside
- ELF Therapeutic Conditioning Balm in 8004 Blackberry Creme
- Barry M Nail Paint in 272 Shocking Pink
- My Beauty Diary Strawberry Yogurt Mask
- White Rabbit lollies (I haven't had these in ages!)
- Haribo Starmix Lollies
- Haribo Tangfastics Lollies
- Galaxy Bubbles Milk Chocolate
I love how Chanel provided me with an ELF product! I have never tried anything from ELF before and I was curious to know what they were like because they're quite inexpensive :)
Oops I didn't realise how shaky this picture was until I edited it after :S
I couldn't retake a picture because the sun already went down :(
It's so smooth and I can definitely see it doing wonders on my lips. I love the scent, I like how it's not too strong and quite subtle after I apply it. Never had a blackberry-scented product before:
Ahh so moisturising :D
You can finally see something of me - my lips!
I've had a red sty-like lump under my eye. Now it's fading and size has decreased. Thank goodness, I'll be able to show my face again hehe
Everything in the package is completely new for me to try and I have never had anything from Barry M before or a My Beauty Diary mask so thanks so much Chanel! Love you lots haha. I'm going to give this mask a try and perhaps do a review if I have a good experience. Hopefully my sensitive skin won't react to this *crosses fingers*
My chocolate is melted LOL! Of course, it's so hot here in Australia so the chocolate wouldn't have been able to withstand the heat x_x I can imagine Chanel packing the chocolate into the package with it being fine because it's apparently freezing in the UK with minus temperatures!! Completely opposite to here xP
So squishy and flat teehehe
I told Chanel that my favourite colour is pink, so I figured that she chose a pink nail polish for me hehe. Here's the swatch on my thumb:
1 coat only and I'm very pleased with it
I am a massive fan of lollies so I'm glad that she packed me some sweets from the UK :D I will try them soon and wait for the chocolate to set again haha.
Once again, thank you Chanel! We actually started talking via Twitter and I remember that she tweeted me first x) She's got a lovely blog and she's recently tagged me as a 'stylish blogger'
I hope you receive my package soon Chanel! I've provided a some Australian-branded products, hope you like them :)
