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!

I could not have picked a better swap partner and she made my first swap an amazing experience. Thank you Charlotte!!!! Go check out her blog and her Youtube channel and show her some love!
