Summer Swap!

I realise that with only a month to go 'til Christmas a post entitled 'Summer Swap' is incredibly out of season but it I could have told you punctuality isn't a strong suit of mine! Despite initially signing up to the swap at Tales of a Pale Face months and months ago, my swap partner Simone and I have only just managed to get our gifts to each other last week! 

My box was totally worth the wait though, wanna see what I got?

Nicole OPI polish sounds grape to me

Two gorgeous nail polishes! Defiant by MeMeMe is a gorgeous deep teal - it's my first product from the brand and a lovely introduction, a great glossy finish and a wide brush make it a very welcome addition to my nail polish collection! The Nicole by OPI polish - Sounds Grape To Me - is my favourite though, what a stunner! This reddy-browny-goldy shimmer polish has autumn written all over it and has been stuck on my nails since I opened the box! 

Another nail treat in the form of top coat extraordinaire Seche Vite. I've had a bottle of this before but didn't get very far through it before losing it so I'm glad I get to give it another go! The shade of the Revlon Eye Glitz Powder is right up my street too, a soft lavender shimmer in 'foiled passion'.

I'm always happy to see any lush product in anything that comes my way, and the Amandopondo bubble bar is a great one to come across! I've mentioned this one before on the blog here - the rosy fragrance is one of my favourites! 

Another couple of welcome products were the Vaseline lip balm - you can never have too many lips balms, especially at this time of year, and I like the idea of it leaving a rosy tint on my lips! I love the Montage Jeunesse mask too - I've gone through many of their masks in my time, but never this one! 

And it goes without saying that the inclusion of both tea and cake in my box made me a very happy blogger!  I've not tried the Sainsbury's English Breakfast Tea yet as it's getting safely packed away for my forthcoming cottage holiday but I can confirm the brownies lasted pretty much no time at all! Mmmmm they were delicious too! 

Huge great big thanks to Simone for all my goodies, and to Kat for organising the swap in the first place!
