Pretty Little Beauty Swap Reveal


Coming home to packages is always fun and this weekend, when I came home Sunday from San Francisco, I had several packages waiting for me including my Pretty Little Beauty Swap package! This month I was paired with the delightful Cassie from Southeast by Midwest.  Cassie was delightful (although for some reason her email didn’t like me and kept throwing me into spam!) But it worked out and we had a great exchange!

I loved that I felt like I was getting a beauty package in the mail with the paper and tissue! We had a discussion about masks and healthy products so it was nice to receive several of those!

I think it was in middle school/late elementary school that Freeman products were huge-I remember using their shampoos and masks all the time! It’s literally been years since I’ve seen their products so I am super excited to try out their products now!

I’m always on the lookout for a good mascara so I’m excited to try this one out and see how good it is. I’ve started only using mascara on my upper lashes in the hopes that I get less clumping throughout the day. Any suggestions for this one?

I’ve never seen or heard of sea terra but I love the smell of rose so I’m excited to try this out and see how it works.

I’ve been wanting to try out Julep forever now so I am super excited to be able to see what I think before I make the plunge into buying a subscription box!


Thanks Cassie for the awesome treats! To see what I sent her, go check out her blog!


Pretty Little Beauty Swap


One of the cool things about blogging is the awesome swaps I get to participate in.  I particularly love the Pretty Little Beauty Swap because I get introduced to all sorts of awesome beauty products that I might not know about!

This time I got paired with Vanessa from X-Tremely V.  Check out her website for what I sent her!


I loved the box–I might actually use it for something else!



Love the polka-dot card!




I can’t wait to try all the E.L.F. stuff! I don’t think I’ve actually used E.L.F. products before so I look forward to trying them out!

Moroccan oil is supposed to be great in your hair so I can’t wait to try them out! And I love masks!

All in all, I loved the box and can’t wait to participate again!

Pretty Little Beauty Swap Linkup


I always love me a good swap and was excited this past month to participate in three of them.  One of them was new to me, the Pretty Little Beauty Swap hosted by Southern Beauty Guide, Sleepy Single Girl, and Hair Spray and High Heels.

This was definitely a fun one and one that I plan to participate in again!  I was paired with the awesome Arielle from Beauty By Arielle and was treated to a whole array of awesome beauty products all packaged in this makeup bag that I can’t wait to start using:


I love that there are two zippers and pouches to put things in, I think I am going to use this on the regular in my purse instead of the three or four makeup bags I have floating around.



I received an Olay face washer that I am going to use next time I travel as it’s airline safe and I hate checking baggage.



I am a sucker for a good mask, especially during a hot bath so I can’t wait to use this one.  I think I’ve received similar masks in my Birch Box and have enjoyed them so it’s a win!



This is an eyeshadow and I like that it’s a neutral color so I can totally use it as a base for any eyeshadows I use on top of it, I like having a base eyeshadow on underneath and Arielle raved about it so can’t wait to put it to good use.



I always love a good nail polish and will probably use this for pedicures this summer.



A great eyeshadow palette that will be put to great use.



I love that she included her business card!  I love the colors and how simple it is!  I think there’s another Beauty Swap opening soon so keep an eye out for that!  This was a fun one and a great way to exchange some products that we all have!
