International Birthday Swap


I'm back and this time it's an International birthday swap that i did with Emma Lindberg from Sweden. This was actually an un-planned swap, as i wasn't planning to swap with anyone until Rebecca the Admin from Be A Beauty Correspondent fixes my partner for the International Friendship Swap event which is sometime in July.

Emma somehow posted a status that she's having her birthday in May, and guess what we happen to share the very same birth date. We agreed to do a small swap for USD 25, but somehow ended up slightly more with the snacks. Plus it's a birthday swap so i wanted to put in more extra's in the parcel. I ended up getting her more treats than makeup items, but i guess i should have fulfill her obsession for lip balms (bought some lip ice for her).

So anyway's receive this lovely parcel from the posmen on the 6th of May and i couldn't wait to open. The anticipation was killing, but having my niece and nephew around doesn't help either, when the box is filled with loads of treats. So let's start digging in:-


This is the first thing i see when i opened the box.

Emma did messaged me earlier that i should read the card last. And somehow found out that her mom made this lovely vintage card for me, how lovely.

Treats from Sweden, you don't get this all the time. There's chocolates, sweets, hard candy, lolly's and lastly a huge candy cane.

Some small treats for Sofiah. She was practically excited with what Emma got for her. The ones in the clear packet is actually a bracelet made out of sweets.

Some toiletries and makeup from Emma. Wet wipes pure nectar (10pcs) which is just perfect to slot it in my handbag. Lypsyl Berry Blast Lip balm which i can't wait to try. The Essence Mini Lip Gloss which has a wonderful mauve shade. The Weleda citrus Hydrating Lotion - nice citrusy smell perfect size to slot it in my handbag. My first ever IsaDora Mascara Volume 2.0... this was Emma's favourite (can't wait to try it out either). And a pink shower thingy (sorry i don't know what it's called), i don't normally used one of this in the shower, but no harm using it from now on.

A cute silver windmill candle holder, along with two scented candles. This was such a lovely gift from Emma, haven't seen one of this in Malaysia as at yet.

This is another makeup surprise, it's an eyeshadow palette from Farg Cosmetics. Need to try and experiment it, In Shaa Allah will swatch and do a review on it soon.

Comfy blue socks with a Hawaiian theme on it, and beautiful pink rose studded earrings.

Oh and if you guys are wondering what i got her, below is the picture (Courtesy of Emma).

I actually got her some Lip Ice lip balms, mini Enchanteur  Lotions, nail polish, a guardian body wash and scrub set, a maybelline mascara. Some chocolates, sweets, chewing gums, Roller Coasters (which she loves, so got to send her some more sometime soon), DIY album, postcards of Malaysia, a phone hanger with her initial, key chain and a fridge magnet. And not forgetting some beauty samples.

So that's practically what i and she had for our birthday swap, and In Shaa Allah it would be a yearly thing. I guess that's about it for this post, till than 

Assalamualaikum ^_^
