I recently took part in Rachael's Island Girl Insights Blog Love Package Swap. 
I just had to sign up on her blog and leave my details and then she paired me with Ashlie. I think she will be holding another one soon as it proved to be very sucessful.

I was paired with the lovely Ashlie from Just Another Day Dream. I was blown away with what I received! Our budget was £15, which generous Ashlie did not stick too! I was ecstatic to see she gave me a Maybelline Baby Lips in the colour Peach Kisses! These are not yet available in Ireland and it is in a colour I normally would not choose for myself but when I put it on it is beautiful! It is my new favourite lip product! I like these way more than the Revlon lip butters. 

Next she gave me a Bath and Body Works body lotion in sweet pea which I was delighted with, as I see loads of fantastic reviews on these on You Tube and have always wanted to try them. Although now I think I am addicted! It smells gorgeous and I was amazed to see the scent lasted all day! 

She also gave me a beautiful make up bag which I can not wait to use as I mentioned in a previous post my current make up bag is looking a little worse for wear. Next in my package was two beautiful Sally Hansen nail varnishes in colours that I most definitely will wear.  

Next up I got Allure magazine, which I can not wait to read in the bath with my face mask on when I finish my exams! I am counting down the days!! 

Finally she wrote me a beautiful letter. There is something lovely about receiving a handwritten letter. I honestly can't not remember the last time I received one and she gave me some beautiful stationary which to be honest I will have to keep as it is too nice to write on!

Thank you so much Ashlie you made my day! And also a huge thank you to Rachael who arranged the entire blog swap as without her I don't think I would have had the opportunity to be involved with a swap. It has been such a lovely experience and I have gain a new friend from it which is amazing.
