A few weeks ago (maybe a month or two now, time flies!) the lovely Lora from Lora Loves... asked if I would possibly like to do a beauty swap with her, intrigued by the idea I asked one of my more experienced blogger friends what she thought, after discussing with her and a little more research I found that these beauty swaps happen fairly regularly in the beauty blogging community, who knew..? I have heard so many things about lots of products that I can't get hold of easily and happily accepted!
For those who follow my blog you will know that I have been on a spending ban for a while and haven't bought myself any beauty products for quite some time, I just couldn't resist this opportunity though and my spending ban will now probably continue until Christmas, I think Lora has well and truly stocked my beauty stash for the next year!
Lora and I emailed back and forth for quite a while, we quickly discovered that we had so much in common in terms of our taste in make up and products, and I felt like I was chatting to an old friend! We gave each other some info about brands and products we were interested in trying, but we were both fairly easy going and willing to be guided by the others knowledge and recommendations. Then we set a budget and hit the shops! Everything with the swap went so smoothly, we kept in regular contact and our packages arrived on each others doorsteps at about the same time, overall, it was a lovely experience and I think Lora and I will definitely keep in touch. I hope if she ever comes to Australia that she will come and visit and I know if I find myself in the UK I will be looking her up for a coffee and Boots date!
Now onto the amazing package that I received...
