Summerswap 2014

 

:sunshine: Summerswap Reveal thread :sunshine: (click on the link)

Because Midsummer Night’s Dream (Secret Santa Summer 2014) had such high interest but was designed as an intimate way for Secret Santa 2013 participants to reconnect with other participants, we had the great idea of SUMMERSWAP 2014! Summer is a great time for music festivals :mussical:, beaches, the pool, hanging out, and of course – friendship! :hugs3:  Who doesn't love to shower and be showered with pretties?  Please join us for SUMMERSWAP 2014!  

 

SUMMERSWAP 2014 will be open to all MUT members who meet the following criteria:

                -- A minimum of 45 days membership with MuT (Must be a member since April 15, 2014)

                -- A minimum of 50 meaningful posts

                -- Members must be in good standing with 0 warning points and/or no negative trade ratings

 

Think of SUMMERSWAP 2014 as a great big festival where we all get together for fun and sharing in our common LOVE  :luv: of makeup in the style of a Secret Santa (Stealthy, stalking, ninja :ph34r:  :santa: like Santas, so we can each surprise our giftee!). 

 

The following is our timeline:

May 20 - June 2 : sign ups (in the sign up thread) & simple questionaire fill out

June 9 - 13 : SUMMERSWAP buddy information sent out

June 14 - July 26: Shopping for your new SUMMERSWAP buddy

July 27 - Aug 8 : send out gifts; reveals posted

 

 

Questions can be posted here or you can PM me (@babs28) or @!

 

NOTE: Please do not contact magicalmom, meaganola or allistra24 REGARDING Summerswap 2014. Also, DO NOT CONTACT THE MIDSUMMER'S FAIRIES either!  It is a COMPLETELY SEPARATE event from Summerswap. They have enough to do dealing with the Midsummer's event. They don't need to be redirecting questions, etc., back to us. We will post "Roadie" (helpers) signups in another thread shortly.  

 

Happy Summerswapping!

How exciting! I'm not 100% sure I'll be able to participate but I'll figure it out as the sign up deadline approaches :) I didn't get to participate in the Secret Santa so I'm glad to have this opportunity! Thanks for organizing this!

So, is this working exactly like Secret Santa? Or is it a 'swap' where you'd buy a gift for the person who's buying you a gift?

I've never done a Secret Santa type thing on MuT so I am super excited about it!  I didn't have enough time here at MuT to participate in the last Secret Santa but it looked like so much fun!!!

 

I'm so excited for all of you who are joining in on the fun! :)

Me too!  I've already mentally started figuring out where I can get the most bang for my buck and pulling out some unused gift cards!!  ;)

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
