May Day Blog Swap!

Hi girls!

Way back in March I spotted a post by the lovely Louise over at Confessions Of A Secret Shopper about a blog swap! I hadn't done one since before Christmas, so I signed up straight away! I was paired up with an amazing girl called Amber from In Love With All That Glitters, who has become a bloggy pal of mine (yay for making new friends!!). After sending loads of emails back and forward chatting away and deciding on what to swap, I recieved my parcel last Thursday! I totally LOVE getting mail, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw it!

Amber did so so so well. I could totally tell she put a huge effort in, by reading previous posts etc to get to know me more than just through the emails. She honestly spoilt me!! We had decided our swap would be make up with some other fun bits and bobs thrown in too. Here is what she got me!



So as I said, I was a very lucky girl! First up are some fun bits and bobs Amber gave me; three cute friendship bracelets. These cute little bracelets are everywhere at the moment, its all about stacking them up, so I can't wait to start playing around with these I love the colours! Next up are these little cupcake bites, which really intrigued me. I have yet to try them, but I know I will probably love them! hey are little bite sized pieces of cake! Yum! Amber also got me a Chococat notebook (I love notebooks and cats, so she got this spot on!!) and a scarf, which is a dusky pink leopard print, another item spot on!!


Now onto the first make up item, which is the MUA Artiste Collection palette! This is the first MUA piece of make up I own and I am definitely not disappointed!! In this set there are two blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter and then 6 eye shadows. You can see swatches of them below!


Next up was a Sleek True Colour Matte Lipstick in Papaya Punch, which is just the most gorgeous bright coral!! I have not tried a matte lipstick before so I can't wait to try this!! I absolutely love Sleek's blushers and eye shadows, so I'm sure this will not disappoint!


Above you can see the last item I got from Amber. It is a cheek and lip tint from Me Me Me another brand which I haven't tried before! Many of you know that I love the tints from Benefit, but those are in liquid form, so I can't wait to try this one, which is almost a cream consistency. The colours are gorgeous too, a light baby pink and then a bright coral!

I just want to say another huge thank you to Amber!!! You did so well and your little note was just so lovely! Girls definitely go check out her blog, she will be doing a post on what I got her!! SHe also is doing very well as a Youtuber too, so please go check that out! She might even be doing a video of what I got her rather than a post, I'm not sure!! Hope you liked this little post and I can't wait to see what all the other girls got when Louise does a round up post!!

Didn't I do well?! Hehe, thank you Amber!
