Blog swap with Jess from Just Jesss

I recently participated in a blogswap organised by Rachael of Island Girl Insights. I love parcels, and I really couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a surprise parcel put together just for me! (It's also awesome fun putting together an Aussie parcel for someone else, and trying to keep it all under £15 is really hard, I'm pretty sure no one in the history of swaps has ever succeeded!) I was so excited to see Jess's package arrive on my doorstep last week:

First off - look how beautifully Jess decorated my parcel! It made me feel extra bad about panicking at the post office about the weight of my parcel and taking everything decorative out (for the record, I ended up with about 40 g to spare... sorry Jess!).

Chocolate, my favourite! I've always wondered how English Cadbury tastes... it's sweeter and milkier than the Aussie version, which is slightly grittier and more chocolatey. I laughed a little when I saw the caramel bunnies... I sent Jess two Caramello Koalas, we're trading sugary fauna!

Nail polish! All brands I haven't tried yet. Accessorise Aztec (multichrome yay, looks a bit like Orly Space Cadet), BeautyUK Posh Polish Sunstone and Topshop Blitz - how cute are these polka dots???

Eyeshadow, perfect for my warpaint adventure! CK and Accessorise eyeshadows (I forgot the names, so I'll have to update that later!). The Accessorise packaging is so pretty!

Overall, I'm thrilled with my package and the whole experience! It's definitely whetted my appetite for more international blogswaps (wink wink nudge nudge). Thank you so much Rachael and Jess for such a great swap experience! And if you want to see what I sent Jess, click here :)


  1. Yay I'm glad it all reached you safely & they're new brands to you, I wasn't sure if you'd have tried Accessorize or not! Hope you like them :)
