I recently took part in a Blogger Box Share that was organised by Becky and Ms Mistry, I always really enjoy taking part in blogger swaps likes this, as it's a great way to meet new bloggers and buy little treats for other people.

I was paired with the lovely Rebecca over at Waves of Thoughts - we chatted via email to begin with before getting stuck into buying things for the blog swap! 

So we are given a limit of £10, and here is what I was bought;

Galaxy Duet
I asked for the package to be delivered to my work address and I may have demolished the Cookies and Cream Galaxy bar at my desk way before I took the photo, so I kept the wrapper just for this. I never opt to get chocolate bars, maybe because I don't have a huge sweet tooth, but oh my, this is actually amazing, I forget that Galaxy is so creamy, so much better than dairy milk IMO. I highly recommend this Cookies and Cream bar.

Two Yankee Candle Tarts
I have recently bought my own place, and am slowly becoming so obsessed with candles! These are two little tarts that smell incredible, I generally stear towards citrus scents but the salted carmel is really lovely too. This will give me an excuse to buy a cute tart burner. I'm going to save these for a cold winters night. :)

Heart shaped soap from Benediktiner Seifenmanufaktur
I have never heard of this this brand before, but after having a little browse on their website, I really like the sound of them. I love learning about the history of companies, and for someone who has sensitive skin, I love that soap is full of natural ingredients. A cute addition to my bathroom. 

"Vegetable oils and butters, and fruit and herbal extracts Handmade, our natural soaps are made in
cold processed, with mineral - colored or food colors, scented with essential oils!"

Eye Shadow from Kiko
Having only tried their eyeliner, I have actually been meaning to try more of their products! So it was a lovely surprise to be sent one of their eye shadows. This neautral pink tone is so pretty, and has flex's of glitter in it. It is a nice base shade to cover any uneaven tones on your eye up to your brow. I own so many beauty products and I am not complaining, I love trying new products!

Have you taken in a blogger swap recently? What is your favourite part of it? Mine is definitely the shopping part!

    1. Ah I'd love to have a penpal :) especially one from a different country so we can send each other different gifts! x

  2. Wow - this is a lovely idea! Also a great way to swap items you may not be interested in with others for something different.
