Oh, the Joy of Swapping! + Award 。◕‿◕。

I just did my first swap ever with the lovely Evie of A Sidewalk Cafe. She's so sweet and I'm so happy to have met her! We had so much fun emailing each other about what makeup we liked & such. I've also gotten to know her a bit and it makes me truly appreciate blogging. I never thought I'd make friends on the internet! XD

I had a ton of fun picking out stuff for her to try. I think I had more fun than when I shop for myself. Never thought I'd say that did you? XP
Check out what I got her here!

Evie was way too generous and sent me a huge box all the way from Singapore. Her DIY box was quite uniquely put together and she taped it so well I had no idea how to open it gracefully. In the end, I just ripped it open lol.
The box was filled to the max with goodies ^o^

She was so thoughtful and wrote notes on everything she got me. I didn't even think to do that -_-
Here's the card (omg pop-up card yay!) she included, for all you nosy folks out there n_n

I saw her review on the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and have been wanting to try it forever. Bourjois isn't sold in the US anymore, for some odd reason. Evie picked this up for me and the color match is great! I love this foundation, it's very thin so it's easy to blend and it smells so good!
I use #51 Vanille Clair

Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner!! Have been dying to try out but it's always sold out on Sasa. This is even LE packaging hehe you know me & my sick obsession with all things LE!

Some things from Daiso that she loves & got for me to try. The blush is so pretty!
I love nose packs. Ripping out all that gunk out of your nose is the most satisfying thing ever!

Hada Labo travel set! This is perfect since I am going to be going on a trip in a few days. It's like she can read my mind XD
Been wanting to try out Hada Labo for a long time, can't wait!

Koji Spring Heart Lashes 
I have a pair that I got a few years ago and loved them. The band is very flexible. If I can apply, so can you!

I swear this girl can read my mind. I love Majolica Majorca and Canmake products!!
She got me the Canmake Cream Cheek in #07 & the Majolica Majora Jeweling Eyes in SV887.

Skin79 Miniature BB Cream Set
I have the gold version and I really love it. Can't wait to try the other types.

Sunscreen...SPF 130! This will be the highest SPF I've ever tried hahaha

She also included 2 Etude House polishes for me try out.

She knows I am obsessed with sheet masks so she included a ton! I've never tried these MBD masks before. So excited (★^O^★)

Thank you for swapping with me Evie!!! Glad I "met" you and got to know you better through this swap!!
Will have reviews of everything as I use them ^_^


The lovely Erika, owner of Fashion Herbal Soup, gave me an award!! Erika always has amazing fashion sense and I always love her outfits. Check out her blog! Thank you so much for the award Erika!!

So here are the rules for this award:
  1. Thanks and link back to the person who awarded you
  2. Write 7 random things about yourself
  3. Spread the love to 15 other bloggers ;)

So...7 random things about me:
  1. I have the worst bird phobia ever, especially pigeons. If I see a pigeon like across the street, I'll start worrying that it will start coming near me and attack me. Or it'll fly so close to me I'll feel its feathers *shudders*
  2. I tend to talk really fast. People who don't know me well have trouble understanding me.
  3. I would like to live in a different country at some point in my life.
  4. My favorite TV show ever is Friends. Best! Show! Ever!
  5. I have always wanted to take an entire birthday cake and eat it all by myself. I would like to start in the middle and dig my way through with a fork. One of these birthdays...I will do it. 
  6. My favorite ice cream flavor is Baskin Robbins Cherries Jubilee. I have eaten that flavor since...my entire life.
  7. I am obsessed with 6-pack abs. Call me vain, but it is just a lovely site. P.S. I ♥ 2PM
