Swapping with a Facebook Friend

When I am not doing my normal every day things (laundry, cleaning, cooking etc) I am either reading, getting blog work done or hanging out on facebook.

I am in a Canadian Swap group on facebook and over the past few months I have gotten into doing swaps. I tend to stick with local swaps only because its so much easier to do then packing and shipping it out.

My March swap partner was someone local to me, Rebecca (she lives roughly 15 minutes from me) and I was excited to meet her because we have been talking for a little while now. We were finally able to nail down a night to meet because I have been swapped with hockey.

We met at a mall that is close to me and I got there a little before Rebecca did and I only went into one store and that was Lush because I wanted to buy an Easter bath bomb. I was surprised at myself for only buying that.

After meeting we went to Starbucks to sit and talk. I have to say that meeting and talking with Rebecca it felt like I have known her forever. We talked about anything and everything. We noticed that Starbucks was starting to clean up so we decided to do our swap.

I have to admit that I was a little nervous at first, then overwhelmed when I peeked into the bag and then felt totally spoiled. Rebecca was a fantastic swap partner and it was like she was able to read my mind as you will see below in my comments.

 This is what the swap looked like when I spread it all out. Doesn’t it look amazing?

 I loved that Rebecca included some other kinds of goodies in the swap. The Play-doh spring eggs was instantly claimed by Michael when I got home. I love that he still loves Play-doh. The other cute item is these shoes post it notes which you can never have too many posted notes right?

 I was so thrilled when opened these nail polishes because they were both ones I have been wanting. The first one is Essie Tart Deco which is the best spring color and Fergie’s Hollywood Walk of Fame.

 I also got this little brush (which has now found a home in my son’s hockey bag, I guess he must of nabbed that as well), cute little hair clips which is something I have been thinking about getting but never did, Macadamia Oil (hair treatment), sample of La Roche Posay anti aging sensitive skin fill in care, sample of Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Honeysuckle eau de toilette spray (love the Green Tea sprays), L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche eyeshadow in the shade Snooze Addict (it was so funny because I got Rebecca almost the same one but I got her the more nude one from L’oreal), Burberry Body Tender sample (I have been wanting to try this one out awhile now), sample of Vichy liftactiv CxP Total and Etude House I miss You lotion. (something else I have been wanting to try for awhile now)

 EOS duo lip balms in the flavors of Strawberry Sorbet and Passion Fruit, (love eos lip balms, i have them all over the house), The Balm Balm Shelter tinted lip gloss in the shade dream girl (its a very nice nude shade), two Cover Girl jumbo gloss balms in the shade watermelon twist and cocoa twist (this has been my latest obsession, I love these balms) and Baby Lips lip balm in Coral crush.

Finally the yummy goodies Rebecca included. Michael pretty much claimed the kinder eggs, eggies and mini eggs but thats okay I don’t mind sharing with him just as long as he left me with the Aero peppermint chocolate.

Thanks so much Rebecca, I loved meeting you finally and hoping we can get together very soon. Thanks for the fantastic swap, its like you really do know me.

Just and FYI about the mini eggs, did you know that if you microwave them in a bowl or on a plate for a few seconds you will get a melt in your mouth treat? Its the only way we eat the eggs now. Its one of our favorite Easter treats.
