The International Beauty Swap

I have a very exciting post to share with you today! A few months ago, I sent out a tweet looking for someone who would be interested in doing an international (UK - Canada) beauty swap with me and the beautiful Charlotte of BlotandReapply responded. We set to chatting and we immediately clicked as she was such a lovely girl - with amazing tattoos! -  so we made plans to do some shopping and send out our boxes on the 1st of July. Well, mine arrived just a few days ago and I could not wait to share it will you!
