International Swap 2 and 3 from USA

I had another international swap with my friend Jess from Simply Jess 4 U and I wanted to show you all my goodies that she sent me. I've actually had 2 packages but I was so busy with uni when I got the last package that I didn't have time to do a post, so this will consist of both package number 2 and 3 from her. If you missed my post on the first package she sent me, you can find it here.

Jess is from the USA so she gets access to a lot of products that I can't get my hands on, and vice versa, so she sends me US brands and I send her products that aren't sold there.


Second package
So this is the second package Jessica sent me and I think it was roughly February that it arrived?! I got a mixed bag this time and got everything from socks to eye shadow haha. I really enjoyed all the products she sent me.  Especially that ELF palette, just look how amazing it is!




Third Package
The third package Jess sent me arrived a couple of weeks ago, just as my exams had finished so it was such a treat and it really really cheered me up. These are the things she sent me this time: 


I love that through Jess we can both get access to products that aren't sold in our countries, it feels extra special I think! I think it's funny how some products aren't sold in the UK/USA, the companies are missing out on so much business!

Thank you to Jess for taking time out of her day to pick these things for me and especially for spending her money on me :) She always choosing things that I really love as we spend a lot of time before hand discussing colours we like/dislike/would like to try. I think that's part of the fun! It can be funny too, we both instant message each other from the shops with pictures etc like 'which one of these pallets do you like best' and people around us must wonder what the hell we are doing haha!

If you can participate in a swap I would highly recommend that you do, it's so much fun. I would say though, make sure you trust the person you are swapping with! I've heard a lot of horror stories about swaps not arriving etc, but most bloggers are genuine so don't let that put you off as it's very worthwhile.

I will review a lot of these items individually in separate posts or this one would be a mile long haha.  I've had so much fun playing around with my Yankee goodies <3

Thanks again Jess babes!

    1. The postage is so high if the items are heavy! It wasn't so bad the last swap though, as I must have chosen lighter items haha. Kats stuff is amazing! Honestly, I love them xx
