So my mailman randomly just showed up super-early today, and I had a few packages. Yay! Haus of Gloi order: check. Some free sample thingies: check. But wait... what's this third package? Mysterious. Opened it up to find... a camera lens coffee mug! HOW COOL IS THIS?!?!

But wait a hot minute...

 

I remember seeing @@wadedl receive one from my giftee @@msambrosia and thinking it was awesome, and I remember commenting on how bad-ass it was. And then I remember shopping around for one... but I didn't actually order one, did I? I think I'd remember that.

 

Sooooo.... anyone care to fess up? ;)

 

(Side note: #nomakeupprecoffeeselfie = EEK!)

LOL! Wooohoooo! It was me :)  I randomly saw it on a flash sale site and remembered that you liked it from a previous reveal!

Aw, thank you SO much! That was so unnecessary, and so sweet, and such good timing because I've been having a bit of a rough go of it lately. A random act of kindness was just what the doctor ordered! Aw, MUT warm fuzzies ---> sniffles ---> dang it, someone must be cutting onions somewhere, because my eyes are watering just a smidge.

My box arrived today! My buddy was @@heath67013!  Thank you so much! I love everything & will post pictures this evening.

 

I didn't notice my box at first because our cat was napping on top of it. :lol:  The mailman had left the box in one of her favorite spots, so I guess Kiki was claiming it as her own.  I tried to get a picture, but she ran to her food bowl when I walked back outside with my phone.

Here are my goodies from @@heath67013!

 

 

All my goodies in the box! Love the wrapping paper!

post-107565-0-65877800-1408163628_thumb.jpeg

 

My note from Heather, cute little notebook, and some samples! 

Freeman Chocolate & Strawberry face mask, Sparklehearts Sweet Hearts sparkly body lotion, Julep hand scrub & Coastal Scents palette sampler in Sunset.My husband thought the face mask was candy. lol I had to grab it away from him before he opened it! 

post-107565-0-03357700-1408163722_thumb.jpeg

 

Two pretty Essie polishes - Watermelon & In the Cab-ana! I've never tried Essie before so i'm excited! 

post-107565-0-87459500-1408163953_thumb.jpeg

 

Lip balms from EOS & Chapstick.  I LOVE EOS!  My nurses laughed at me when I was in the hospital back in May for gall bladder surgery because I had 4 EOS balms with me. I don't have this flavor though - blueberry acai!  The Chapstick is Green Apple & Caramel, which is PERFECT for me.  I kinda want to eat it.  lol

post-107565-0-66970300-1408164086_thumb.jpeg

 

EcoTools! My favorite!!! I don't have these yet. I actually haven't even seen them before! 

post-107565-0-95128500-1408164243_thumb.jpeg

 

Yarn! This is the exact brand I used to make my swapbuddies scarf!  You were right, Heather. 1 skein makes a scarf!  Both of these skeins are so pretty, but i'm loving the black one. I haven't seen the metallics before. 

post-107565-0-73125000-1408164338_thumb.jpeg

 

Check out this awesome NYX palette!  I love the NYX brand, but have really only bought their lip products so i'm excited to try the shadows & blushes.  I've never watched the show Revenge, but my friend Ross is a big fan. I sent him a picture and told him, "LOOK! I'm going to be Emily Thorne!" haha.

All my goodies! Thank you so much for everything, Heather! I love it all. :)

My Summerswap Buddy is @@dancersmum who is the BEST EVER!  Reveal coming shortly - after I figure out how to post pictures (a lot) from my phone.  My favorite little person, Z (my son), spilled SWEETENED iced tea all over my laptop which has my whole entire life on it!!!  :(  I"m waiting for it to dry out completely before I attempt to turn it on!

Oh no @@Babs28 !  I hope it dries without any problems.  I managed to spill a giant mug of (hot) tea all over my phone, laptop AND TV remote all at once.  I scrambled to dry my laptop and phone, but delayed on the TV remote... and then it wouldn't work right for two days!  I'm happy to report it's back to normal now!

 

Sending happy computer vibes your way!  pc.gif

I was WAY too excited to remember to take a picture of the unopened box! I looked at where it came from and knew who my Swap Buddy was right away!  My box traveled 3/4 of the way around the world to get to me!  It came all the way from HONG KONG...which meant that my Swap Buddy was @@dancersmum:D This is the first look after I opened the box! What do I see?! Butterflies, Dragons and a HUGE Lolipop!!!  A few of my favorite things!!!  post-104869-0-54457800-1408217124_thumb.jpg 

 

I open the card! I love the cut outs and pop outs! Just beautiful!  There's butterflies on the card!  Yay!!

post-104869-0-09137300-1408217127_thumb.jpg 

I unpacked the box and there are lots of individually wrapped presentst Quite a few are in what I *think* are really cool bank envelopes!  At this point I have PMed Dancersmum to gush and I mentioned the dragon bank envelopes (shown in picture below). She tells me to be patient and that they are explained at the end in a letter. She included 2 big butterflies, one is a magnet, one has a pin on it. i LOVE THESE!! They are awesome!!

 post-104869-0-55387800-1408217127_thumb.jpg

She included a dragon card for my son and some awesome gifts for him too which he loves! She got him a skull bracelet that I love too so sometimes Z will *let me* wear it! ;) I have to promise to take good care of it and not lose it when he offers to let me wear it!  It's so funny!  :)

 I didn't open anything until I had a chance to take everything out of the box! Some of the packages and goodies that I have taken out:

I see Tokyomilk!!!! :D :D

And there's a Bite lippie!!  :luv: I just LOVE those decorated envelopes!  The two mini ones are so pretty!!

post-104869-0-46264300-1408219837_thumb.jpg

 

One of the decorated envelopes had "Percy Jackson" written on a sticky note stuck to the outside of the envelope. Hmmmm......I did open that one and inside was an organze bag with gold stuff in it!  I'm a lucky girl.  I managed to put it down until I got the other stuff out.

I spoke to the post office several times before someone even talked to my mail carrier, finally on Thursday they told me he didn't remember anything about the package. So I guess probably it was stolen.  :( I just hate this, I hate that I didn't get to see what @Bizgirlva picked out for me, I hate that all her effort was stolen by some creeper, I hate talking on the phone so I hated the whole trying to track it down process, and I'm just really sad about how this turned out  :(

My awesome box from @@klg534!! I am sorry it took a few days to get this up but work has been really crazy the last few days. All of my beauties wrapped. Loved the little notes she wrote on each one:)

 

 

1st I opened the Seephora Summer Safety kit!! Omg So great I missed it online and my nearest Sephora is 50 miles away. So happy to have gotten this! Next a cute little lip bag with balms and a Nars Pricilla gloss. Love love this color:)

 

I also received another bag with great makeup essentials. I have already used the liner, I love it. The color lasted on me all day:) Yes to carrots body wash, wipes, glossing cream (one of my HG items, how did you know:) Origins Clay mask and tons of pretty hair ties!!! Love the body wash and moisturizer from Bath and Body works! Very refreshing.

 

 

I also received Pacifica Tuscan Orange perfume, I can see why it's one of your favorites, I love this:)

 

Holy samples, a whole bag full of them. These are my weakness such a great variety you included, I will have enough to keep me busy for quite awhile.

 The last picture is everything together.

This was the highlight of my summer. Thank you so much Kellie for an AMAZING box!! I have so many things new to me , I appreciate the time you took to make this personal for me.

Thank you, thank you!!

Oh my goodness ladies.  I just got back from a week long family vacation & the first thing I had to do was catch up on this happy thread.  Oh, I love it.  I love everybody on here & all the happiness in these reveals.  It was nice to take an hour break & just read & see all the pretties you all have sent to each other.  Now I'm off to do a week's worth of laundry for 8 people (ugh), but thank you for all your happiness & for sharing it with each other.  The happiness on this thread is truly contagious.

This infuriates me to no end and I am terribly sorry you had to experience it.  A few years back someone broke into my mom's vehicle in a parking garage in Milwaukee and snatched my backpack.  I lost some things I will never get back but there was nothing of any value to anyone but me.  I had a bunch of used up makeup in there.  Can you imagine the look on their face when the realized they've just jacked a car to steal my mom's bible and some used up Wet n' Wild... I hope the thief has the decency to realize what they've taken and anonymously return it to you.  There are some real dirt bags out there in this world unfortunately.

OMG - my summerswap package arrived...my daughter just called...I want to leave work now and open everything!

 

The bad news is my daughter said that she peeked in the 3 massive boxes and it looks like it will be a treasure hunt to find all the bits and pieces as everything was emptied out among the other items I had ordered (bedding, pots & pans and the kids back to school gear).    All I know is that she spotted a tarte box and a lippie hiding in the styrofoam but no clues as to who sent the package yet...I am soooo excited!  But since the warehouse people got rid of all the original box I am hoping that the clue to your identity wasn't on there!  I do however have a real name now as the packing list from the warehouse shows me that - but no username yet!

 

Thank you to my summerswap buddy for making my day!  I can't wait to go look at everything!  I wonder if I can leave early today?!?

I am sorry to hear that! That's terrible for both you and as you mentioned also for bizgirlva! All of the thought, money, etc. that went into this!

I unfortunately know how you feel...this has happened to me twice in the 3 months that I've lived in my new location. It's my first experience with a "communal mailbox" in a neighborhood, and it's not leaving a good impression...I miss my own mailbox at the end of my drive way.

Anyway, I'll think good thoughts for you that perhaps it'll turn up! :)

Good luck with that computer, my bed fell on my MacBook Pro and made a crack on the case and it worked for a while and then it died. Apple fixed it for $250 but I had to buy a casing for the hard drive to download everything before I sent it off. They ended up replacing almost everything but the hard drive.

 

So even if it works back it up to something ASAP

So my awesome swap buddy was @@cobainrls!  I was really spoilt and her handwriting is so much neater & tidier than mine is.  

 

 

 

post-105398-0-50728800-1408369097_thumb.jpg

 

 

 

Among the many goodies - I found calypso mango tea - yummy!  I can't wait to try it...I love teas and this looks delicious!  A box of tarte - bronzer...this one is perfect for my desk at work!  A baggu bag in a lovely blue - perfect for my handbag as the bag that I usually carry my shopping is starting to get holes!  Sephora universal lip liner - been on my wishlist forever and I never seem to see it in stock!  Makeup forever mini lipstick - in such a pretty color!  I can't wait to try it.  Your HG mascara is my daughters as well!  I love love love jurlique products-rose hand cream!  Can't wait to try it.  Hair ties - not all of them are in the image as my daughter ran off with a few of them but I always have hairties with me and these are so pretty. 

 

BITE - OMG I LOVE THIS!!!  The colors are fabulous - this is going to live in my handbag!  Chocolate lipbalm - it smells delicious...  Then there is some eyeshadows to check out ...my first meet Matt!  And some coastal scents eyeshadows too!  Eye patches - they sound amazing!

 

I know there were lots of other samples and other fun things...but what amazed me was how much care had gone into choosing my goodies! The jurlique smells divine and won't give me a migraine - and there are so many items that my daughter wants to help herself too...but the only thing I am sharing is the tea!

 

Then there was a little trinket box - unfortunately it arrived damaged  :( but its still totally usable!  And hidden in it was ring!  I know I mentioned I liked the colour rose gold - but I was thinking makeup...and instead I got jewelery!!!  Talk about a nice surprise.  

 

 

 

 

 

I just wanted to say a huge thank you!  So many new things to play with and try...  So crazy to think that I got so many  lovely things from someone who hasn't met me!  Thanks so much.

    • 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
