  1. As much as I would love to do another round, I think I will have to bow out for the next one. But, it's been fun!
  2. I have only tried the style extender, which I really liked. I am excited to try these two products!
  3. Wow! Just opened the box and it is jam packed! Will post what I am taking/putting in shortly!
  4. Can't wait to get the box. I actually have to go out of town unexpectedly for work until Monday but I promise to send it out first thing Tuesday after making my swaps!!
  5. Sorry I have been slow to respond, but everything looks great. I am excited to get the box! I have already gone through my stash and picked a lot of good stuff. Let me know if any of the people behind me are interested in anything particular, and I will see what I have!
  6. Count me in! I meant to say that I was not interested in masks but am definitely interested in an everything else swap! I am fine with the dates and also with lightly swatched items if they are clearly marked.
  7. I would definitely be interested in participating in a non-Korean mask circular swap!
  8. I just received the sweetest thank you gift from @@Kelli! She sent it a while ago but I have been on maternity leave and haven't been able to stop by my office until today. She included all sorts of fun things including some sweet gifts for my little boy! Thank you so much, Kelli!!! I love it all!
  9. I am so overwhelmed right now by how incredible my gift was from @@Kelly Silva. She really outdid herself and I am beyond grateful for how much thought she put into everything. Here’s the box and what I found when I opened it! Everything was beautifully wrapped with color coded paper and a note card explaining what was chosen and why. I especially loved this little shark card (perfect for Shark Week!) The first box I opened was labeled “face and hair” and had 1) Lancer Lift Serum 2) Borghese Brightening Makeup 3) Alterna Caviar CC Cream 3) Napoleon Skin Primer 4) ReVive Eye Serum 5) The Balm’s Hot Mama (LOVE!) and 5) SuperGoop Eye Cream. The second box was labeled body products which was full of fun things that I can take with me when I travel. I can’t wait to try out the different washes and lotions including: 1) Caldrea tea olive lime body wash 2) Jergens BB Cream 3) Dr. Haushka lemongrass body wash 4) Bee Kind body lotion 4) Rock Star hand cream and 5) Gilchrist and Soames body lotion. Everything smells delicious and exactly like something I would pick for myself! The third thing I opened was this beautiful Turkish bag with samples galore. The foils are also perfect for travel! I also adore the bag! I know I will use it a lot! Kelly also included a stash of tea and some delicious snacks. I already tore into the sea salt caramel popcorn (and am now typing this with sticky fingers.) She also included a spicy mango chili sauce (sounds delicious) and a baggie of candies, including some See’s orange cream lollipops. (I love See’s Candy!) The next thing I opened was this beautiful Gorjana jewelry roll. Kelly was worried that the color would be too bright but I LOVE it!! I love reds and hot pinks and so this is perfect for me. I will definitely use this when I travel. Next was a box containing some of her favorites (to the left) and some of mine (to the right.) In it was the Balm’s Mary Lou Manizer (something that I have been dying to try), a Garden of Evil whipped body cream in “Make it Rain” (I love the scent), a Rainbow Honey French lavender soak, the LAQA lip pencil in Menatour (which Kelly knows I have been wanting to try!) Vasanti Brighten Up and the No. 4 Prep & Protect (both of which I love.) The next thing I opened was a little bag containing various lip products including: 1) a Yes to Carrots lip butter 2 ) a limoncello lip butter, since I had to postpone my trip to Italy this spring (so sweet) 3) the cutest Cynthia Rowley lipgloss 4) a Maybelline lipstick which she picked out because it was the closest thing she could find to the YSL lip color that is impossible to find (it looks pretty darn close!) and 5) two lip scrubs that she made in frozen margarita and guava!!! I can’t wait to try these out! So, the final gift was almost too much for me to process. She labeled it the “ultimate box of awesome.” I literally opened the top of the box and then quickly closed it again. I just had to give myself a few minutes before diving into it. First up were five beautiful nail colors. The first four will be perfect for the fall (as you can see I couldn’t wait until fall to try them out- please ignore my ragged cuticles and my fat pregnant fingers) and the last one is the perfect match for Dior color that I have been dying to try. She also included some perfume samples- including two of my favorite (Folle de Joie) and another of Atelier’s Rose Anonyme. There was also so many wonderful eye products including: 1) a blending brush 2) LaSplash eye shadow sealer/base 3) a Chella eyeliner pen in “indigo” and 4) Sumita eye pencil. I also got a Coastal Scents palette which contains the perfect shades for me and also the Stila “In the Moment” eye palette which has been on my wishlist forever! I feel completely spoiled. There was also an Honest Co. toothpaste for my baby to be. Finally, Kelly included two more things that she made—a blood orange foaming sugar scrub and a body butter that smells absolutely divine – blooming dogwood with a hint of ocean spray. I cannot wait to use them! Kelly also included several of her favorite recipes for Thai Style Pork Salad, Mushroom and Swiss sliders, Toasted Israeli Couscous, Honey-Sriracha chicken wings and Peach Whiskey Bourbon chicken. I really loved all the personal touches she included in the box. Not only did she pick gifts that were perfect for me, she shared with me some of her loves, which I know I will love as well. I cannot express enough how overwhelmed and grateful I am. Thank you, Kelly from the bottom of my heart!
  10. Eek! I got my box from @@Kelly Silva! I was on vacation last week so I just got to the office now and will open it and post pics as soon as I can. I am so excited!
  11. Yay!! I am so happy you like everything! It was so much fun shopping for you. I really feel like the gifting is the best part of the exchange. I was so excited for you to receive the package and "to see" you open everything! I love the reveals!!!
  12. Will be shipping today! It was actually cheaper to send my box via Priority Mail (in a non-flat rate box) than via parcel post, so it should get to my swap buddy sooner than I thought! Eek! I hope she likes what I picked for her!
  13. Thanks! I will work it out with Babs!
