Box Swap!

Recently, the lovely Elle (xgardenofedenx) and I decided to
do a box swap. They are mostly beauty related, but we have
each included a few non-beauty items too. I had
so much fun doing this and I adore my box, so
thank you, Elle! So, what's inside?


Well, first of all my absolute FAVOURITE thing is
The Goddess Guide by Gisèle Scanlon which I have wanted
for ages, and it has definitely lived up to expectations! It looks so
pretty on my bookshelf and it is so interesting and full of
gorgeous photos and useful tips.

Also non-beauty related was an adorable little heart shaped
coin purse, which I am going to use to hold change in my car
because I always forget money for the car park. Inside was a cute little
sticker, an adorable silver ring which I have been wearing
on my pointing finger, a really lovely friendship bracelet
and the loveliest owl necklace which I am going to
be wearing A LOT! Oh, and she included a big box
of Berry Burst Jelly Beans, which are my all time
favourite!

Okay, on to the beauty stuff... She popped in 3 nail varnishes,
including a gorgeous Essie polish in shade Neo Whimsical,
a Seche Vite polish in Nouveau, and a mini
Nails Inc top coat. These are all gorgeous, especially
the Essie polish which is a perfect base colour
for summery nail art!

Also in my box were three lipglosses, one of which is the
MUA Out There Plumping Lip Gloss in Sienna, which is a
stunning burnt coral/pink shade. I was also really thrilled to
see two Rimmel Stay Glossy lipglosses, in Timeless Allure and
Orange Your Life, both amazing summer shades which
I will get lots of use out of.

I am super excited to try out the VO5 Hot Oil, which
is an in-shower treatment with five natural
oils that restores the hair's moisture and doubles its strength. I am
a fan of anything which has those benefits for my hair! Another shower
product is Anatomicals Don't Just Clean It Woman,
Scrub It Body Scrub which I am thrilled
with because I am currently coming to the end of a sample size
I have of this and I love it!

As an extra, she also put in a travel size Burts Bees
Milk and Honey Body Lotion, which is going straight
in my travel bag! And it smells divine, so bonus. I am also
really happy that she included a St Tropez Instant Glow
Body Lotion as an extra (she owned it but didn't use it) because
I have ran out of mine and I really like it.

I have wanted to try Maybelline Colossal Mascara for
a very long time and never got around to it, so I was so happy to see
that she bought it for me! I am so excited to use it! She also put two
Barry M Dazzle Dusts in my box, both in beautiful pink
shades which I am loving at the moment!

So, as you can tell I am absolutely over the moon
about my box from Elle, and I'm so grateful! I will be posting
reviews on some of the products in it, and also a post on
what I included in her box (when she's opened it!)

Thank you, Elle! X
