Summerswap 2014 Reveal Thread (Post your beauties here)

Recommended Posts

I got my package today and my summer secret santa was @@Dashery ! Thank you so much! I wasn't expecting this so soon and it just made my entire Monday! Everything came all pretty with little notes attached to each surprise.

Everything came in this reusable Batman & Catwoman shopping tote. I TOTALLY SHIP THIS! Especially the Anne Hathaway and Christian Bale version. ALL THE DARK KNIGHT RISES FEELINGS!

 

blogger-image--1725519969.jpg

I love the card she chose! It's so pretty! I don't think I've ever seen one like it! One of the first items I pulled out was this Too Faced Tan Without The Twinkle set. I love their chocolate bronzer, but the little bitty brush out-cuted the makeup itself. It's so soft and pretty!

 

blogger-image--1092916023.jpg

Ally made me all of these super cute hair bows! My favorite is the red and white one in the middle. It's one of my favorite things from everything Ally sent me, which is a lot to say because it was all amazing! I think I'll be wearing this bow almost every day!

I receive all of these cute little miniatures, including a miniature JC perfume! I don't have this one yet either, so I'm super excited to add it to my ever growing collection. Also these papier poudre sheets seem amazing, it looks like not only do they blot and remove oil, they leave a light dusting of powder on the face. C'est tres chic!

And one of the most amazing parts was this custom "subscription box" made just for me!

It's Rochelle Goyle themed! /flips the freak out!/

Inside there were so may Rochelle themed goodies from color coordinated makeup to handmade hair bows to eyeshadow samples (from The Checkered Lily, one of my favorite indie companies!). This was so creative and amazing! Top this, ladies!

 

 

 

Ally, thank you so much for everything. I love, love, love it all! It's made me so happy, you don't even know!

Wow!  That is just so creative!!  I love your present!

Thank you!

And the powder paper is pretty cool. I found them hiding at the back of a little Boutique in South Carolina. They come in white and rose, I think. I remember I had something similar in high school. Flirt! sold these weird blush papers that came in this little plastic tube. It was kind of like a roll of tin foil actually! :P Anyway, it reminds me of that.

@DonnaD was my summer swap buddy and my package arrived today!

First of all, the box is barely closed because it is absolutely jam-packed. 

post-92025-0-82956100-1406599250_thumb.jpg

Second, @@DonnaD had crocheted a beautiful market bag! This is absolutely gorgeous, with a touch of whimsy. It even includes a pocket on the back! Every time I use this bag, I'll think of your thoughtfulness! 

post-92025-0-18248700-1406599263_thumb.jpg

post-92025-0-33367800-1406599308_thumb.jpg

Third, the box smelled fantastic because it included a bottle of Laundress signature detergent, which I will happily use to wash the market bag. Yup, I'm excited about laundry detergent!   :)

 

Next, I found a tea cup, saucer, and tea! I drink tea daily and this set is perfect timing because we recently broke one of our mugs. 

post-92025-0-66054100-1406599362_thumb.jpg

There were several bath and body products, including shampoo, sponges and a mini brush. I've got to admit that I'm usually running out of the door in the mornings to catch my bus, so that mini brush will come in handy when I don't have time to brush my hair before I leave home.

 

In addition, @@DonnaD included a Sigma foundation brush that I've been coveting! I recently started wearing makeup daily, so I hope that this brush will help to decrease the time that it takes to apply foundation. 

 

@@DonnaD also included a beautiful set of OPI nail polishes. My nail polish collection is mostly neutrals, so I'm happy to have colorful shades!

 

Finally, @@DonnaD included caramel-filled chocolates, a cell phone charm in my favorite color and forget-me-not flower seeds!

@@DonnaD Thank you so much for taking the time to crochet such a beautiful bag and to curate such a well-rounded lifestyle package. I love lifestyle products, so this box was absolute perfection. I am grateful for your creativity, generosity and thoughtfulness!

I'm so pleased you liked it!  You're actually very easy to shop for and I had fun reading through your posts and mss  survey to get an idea of what kind of gifts to get you.  It was my pleasure.

I was surprised that the foundation brush bristles were so soft (this is my first Sigma brush). Any tips for applying foundation with this brush (I've only used beauty blenders for foundation/bb creams)?

I usually just dab some foundation on my face then go to town in a buffing motion with it!

I just got a similar brush and tried it for the first time the other day.  Basically I take my foundation and pour a drop out on a hard plastic thing I have.  You only need a little.  You dip the brush in so all the bristles get covered and depending on how thick your foundation is you may need to dab the excess off.  The you apply the brush in a circular motion all over your face.  I had to practice a bit.... but my make up was flawless!!  So much lighter and looked amazing.  I watch a lot of youTube videos too and the one I learned the most from was Shaaanxo.  She's awesome.  I watched her beginners series and learned SOOOO much.  Plus she's got a great accent and is really funny.

    • Moisturizer is also the best gift for someone.  The best moisturizer helps to get rid of skin related ailments and dry skin problem. So, I advise to chose the best moisturizer from the available brands in the market.
    • Finally I found a like-minded person in this. It's cool, you can win big winnings and, moreover, without leaving the house. I have been playing play n go slots for a year now, this resource has long existed in the field of gambling and if you have questions, I will be happy to help you.
    • There are many reasons to moisturize your skin with best moisturizer.  Always chose your best moisturizer. Dermatologists always advise  to moisturize the skin as moisturizer reduces the skin problems and increase the moisture level of the stratum corneum. Dryness is removed by the  Moisturizer and it prevents skin from drying out. 
    • It was two years ago this weekend, that I started to get ready for my 2018 No Buy, and I've come such a long way! I recall on the Saturday night, two years ago, overeating pizza and watching a mukbang channel on You Tube. I remember waking up really early on the Sunday morning feeling ill. I was googling small meals and I found myself on a forum about bariatric surgery. I was reading posts about all the hard work people put in for that kind of surgery. This inspired me, and the next day I ate a small healthy meal, early in the day. I had an amazing sleep on the Sunday night. Amazing dreams. When I woke up, I had all this motivation to do a No Buy for 2018! I haven't changed my weight or eating since then, but I did make a lot of progress on my debt, which is more important to me. I began right away listing all my debts, organizing my beauty items, and using up a few little odds and ends. My goal was to pay off one debt a month in 2018, and this was my list:  Jan - credit card $27.32 Feb - credit card $42.93 Mar - credit card $76.98 April - IRS debt $102.04 May - credit card - $242.86 June - credit card - $398.01 July - credit card $442.61 August - credit card $629.43 Sept - credit card $725.55 Oct - credit card $761.90 Nov - credit card - $946.69 Dec - credit card $985.76 I ended up making it half the way through the list in 2018. This year, I got burned out and stopped working on my No Buy until June, when I finished the rest of this list along with two additional debts. All except for the $761.90 debt that I had wanted to pay off Oct 2018. That one has such a bad interest rate and little minimum payment, that many things moved ahead of it in the debt snowball program. That's why it will be so exciting to pay it off on Boxing Day!  I still have debts but far fewer. I was desperate to not have so many. As you can imagine, that was a lot of payments each month.    
    • Major beauty packaging companies decided to launch paper cosmetic tube for the consumers. These tubes are more eco-friendly.  This was  announced at  Luxe Pack Monaco. Major plastic part will be replaced with a bio-based, paper-like material.  Production is expected to start  in the mid of 2020. The replacement of plastics is environment friendly and  a cardboard-based tube will be a good achievement to save environment.
