A few weeks ago I received a package from one of my Blog BFFLs which I'm sure many of you know (because she's so awesome). I'm talking about the one and only - my Melody, a lovely blogger from Melbourne (in Australia) who happens to be one of the most sweetest and thoughtful girls I have ever known! So this blog post is pretty much dedicated to her :)
I haven't met her in real life before but we've had countless conversations via Blogger (of course), Twitter, Facebook, Skype and email so from all of that we've gotten to know each other quite well. What makes it easy for us to connect is that we're both from Australia and she's just a year level older than me. Our university courses have similarities and I love how I can talk to her freely about cadavers without her being grossed out xD I can't talk to anyone about it except for her haha. Even my friends in my course don't want to talk about it!
So without further ado, here is the package I received from her:
She used colourful stamps, how cute x] It's so like Melody because her blog posts are COLOURFUL
Usually for packages, they print out a sticker as the stamp at the post office
Items with a sweet handwritten note ♥
Don't mind my dodgy 'watermark' - I got lazy and just used my phone's photo editor xD
The items were all a surprise and I had no idea what would be in it so when I saw the things I was like :O Because Melody specifically purchased items that would 'suit' me or was interested in. I remember having a conversation with her about Chi Chi nail polishes x]
Here are the nail polishes on my nails, 2 coats:
Chi Chi Salon Formula in Cyberrella
Silver nail polish, yay it's so metallic ^.^
Chi Chi Salon Formula in Booty-licious
Quite sheer but buildable colour
And she also got me a Chi Chi eyeshadow dust:
Chi Chi Eyeshadow Dust in Flashy Trashy
One swipe swatch
The pigmentation is pretty good and it is a shimmery yellow with a hint of gold. I never owned any yellow eyeshadow but now I do ='] Aw thanks Mel hehe.
Last but not least item, something perfect for a vain girl like me haha...
A compact mirror!
Even though I'm kind of vain... this is my first compact mirror lol
Naww it's so pretty how it has pink glitter and rhinestones. If you didn't already know, my favourite colour is pink and I adore anything that sparkles and shines :D
It opens out as a double mirror - the top is 1x magnification and the bottom is 2x magnification
My phone is very outdated, about 3 years old D: But it takes clear pictures because it's a Cybershot x]
So many of you might be wondering why Melody sent a package my way. Well, a few months ago she held a giveaway contest which I entered for fun and also as my way to show my support. I wasn't a winner but she was kind enough to send packages to a few close blog friends who also entered as a way of saying thanks for entering. So sweet isn't she!
Thanks once again Melody for holding such a creative giveaway contest and of course, for sending a thank you package to me :] I don't feel that my words can be enough to thank you so I will definitely be sending you back a little something. You've spent time (and money) finding some items for me so I've got to do the same for you too, and reply to your sweet letter ^-^ I'm very grateful for knowing you through blogging, I hope we can meet one day!
If you haven't already, I suggest you check out her blog because it's really interesting to read with informative and helpful posts. She recently made a switch from Blogspot to Wordpress so her efforts should definitely be praised as it's not a very easy thing to do. Her new header and layout is awesome *_*
