Blogger Swap with Quinn of Mama Fashionista!

In the almost 4-years since I started Café Fashionista I have watched tons of bloggers take part in blog swaps {which always look incredibly fun}, but have never participated in one myself; so I was absolutely thrilled when Quinn of Mama Fashionista invited me to do one with her. And I was even more excited when she suggested that we swap everything from beauty products and coffee to accessories and books. Of course I said yes, and so quite a bit of shopping ensued. Take a peek at the chic I received below; then head over to Mama Fashionista to check out the swag {that word always makes me think of Justin Bieber!} that I picked out for Quinn!

Violent Lips The Giraffe: These are actually super fun temporary lip appliqués that I’ve seen on Kim and Khloe Kardashian, and Snooki (in different styles). I love The Giraffe one as the color and print is fairly tame and neutral yet still playful!
Rimmel London ScandalEyes Waterproof Mascara: Brush size = awesome.
NCLA Nail Wraps in Boudoir: The color combo on these is so pretty – reminds me of Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream!

ILLUME Coconut Milk Mango Frosted Mini Candle: There are seriously no words to describe how incredible this smells. I am in love!
Color Club Disco Nap Nail Polish: Gorgeous gold / silver foil - it will be perfect for reverse french manis.
LUSH Vanillary Perfume in Sweet Vanilla Bean: Vanilla is my favorite scent...enough said.
Melvita Eau Extraordinaire Narcisse: Rose water. It makes you feel so elegant.
Everyday Minerals Cheek in Come What May: The absolute perfect kiss of color.
Josie Maran R.E.M. Pen 2-in-1 Argan Eye Shadow & Gel Liner in Champagne / Almond: I am completely obsessed with products containing Argan Oil right now, so this is one of my favorite products at the moment. Not to mention that the size is clutch-perfect for Girls Night!
Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain in Cha Cha: I can never resist a product that has dual purposes.
eos Shave Cream in Lavender Jasmine: It has a pump! Seriously, why can't all shaving cream have a pump?!
Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Total Care Nourishing Shampoo: Smells incredible and is so gentle on hair.
Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Total Care Nourishing Daily Conditioner: Makes hair so glossy - I love it!

Sweet Sunrise Roastery Vanilla Nut Pumpkin Pie Coffee: The perfect, perfect fall blend.
The Little Lady Agency by Hester Browne: Very Sophie Kinsella meets Bridget Jones.
The Best Day of Someone Else's Life by Kerry Reichs: You must read this - even if only for the e-mails!
ChewyLou Designs KARMA Tank Top: I am in love, love, love with this top - the color is gorgeous, and it is so comfortable for yoga / meditating.
Forever 21 Cutout Heart Ring Set in Gold: You probably can't tell from the picture, but this is two rings {a heart and a circle} that you can wear stacked or alone - so pretty.
Owl Necklace: Burnished brass / antique gold and colored stones? Swoon! I am so in love! Also pertinent...owls are my favorite.

So loves...what do you think of my blogger swap goodies? Have you tried any of these products out before?

Oh, and for the record…blogger swaps? They don’t just look incredibly fun…they seriously are!

Love swaps. I'm kind of obsessed, though, which can be a bit of a problem. LOL I'm glad you finally took part in one. I'm doing two for the upcoming holidays, which I'm very excited to start buying things for...:)
