It’s NOT my birthday yet, but neither Joyce nor myself could wait to post this, so we’re showing our swap a week and one day before our actual birthdays. 😉 Yes, Joyce of Local Girl Foreign Land and I share a birthday! It’s next Tuesday July 11th! 😀 Here’s a glimpse at what Joyce sent:

We started chatting about doing this swap after my last one – and so, back in July, we formulated the swap guidelines: We buy each other one thing under 10€ / $15 CAD each month for 4 months (August to November), and mail out in time for Christmas. We wanted to focus on brands / products not available in our native countries – Isabelle lives in Belgium and I’m in Canada. I’d indicated that I was most interested in eye shadows, blush, and concealers. This is what she sent me:
Here’s everything unwrapped:
I’ve been completely spoiled! 😀
