spring blog swap with Quinn of Mama Fashionista!

So…back in November 2012 Quinn of Mama Fashionista and I did an awesome blog swap
made up of makeup, books, accessories, and coffee. At the time,
we deemed the swap to be a massive success {not to mention incredibly fun},
so Quinn came up with the brilliant idea to do a swap for each season. And so, I bring you the
goodies I received from our spring swap. Stop by Mama Fashionista
to see what I picked out for Quinn!

Streekers Wild Weekend in Pink: This lets you do a bright but temporary streak job on
your hair. I'm thinking pink tips for the weekend!

BaubleBar Necklaces! The neon yellow is braided {and can actually be worn
as a bracelet when wrapped around twice}; and the black and gold spike is the
perfect amount of edginess for GNO.

Avon Mega Impact Eyeshadow in Poolside Pop: So amazing for creating
mermaid eyes. The two colors are incredibly complementary to one another;
and you can build the intensity to your liking.

Avon Glazewear Sparkle Lip Gloss in Rave: Love, love, love!
The color is subtle, but the sparkle effect makes it look like you have
tiny diamonds on your lips.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Nude Beige: If you have
sensitive skin, this is a must-own powder. It's lightweight, easily controls shine,
and is completely gentle.

Avon NAILWEAR PRO+ Nail Enamel in Decadence: The shimmer makes
this color incredibly luxe!

Sinful Colors Professional Nail Enamel in Sugar Rush and Sweet Nothing:
Sugar Rush is a pastel baby blue {one of my all-time favorite
nail colors}
, and Sweet Nothing is more teal / turquoise
leaning {think China Glaze Aquadelic}.

NCLA Call Me for the After Party: The name alone
screams Spring Break, yes?

BVLGARI Refreshing Towel: There are no. words.
to describe how incredible this smells. Trust.

Aussie Miraculously Smooth Shampoo + Aussie Miraculously Smooth Conditioner:
This. Stuff. Smells. So. Amazing.

Avon Advance Techniques Medium Hold Hair Spray: Rarely
do you come across a hair spray that doesn't make leave your hair feeling crunchy.
This, however, is it. Insta-love!

Terra Dolce Lavender Green Tea Artisan Soap: The scent is incredible;
but I cannot get over the adorable packaging. It has a rustic vibe
that is just perfect for gift-giving.

EOS Tangerine Medicated Lip Balm Sphere: The color,
flavor, scent is too perfect for spring!

Burt's Bees Ultimate Care Hand Cream: I've used this like seven
times a day since receiving it. Yes, I'm a bit OCD about
hand-washing and moisturizing.

Books! Single in Suburbia by Wendy Max + The Chocolate Money
by Ashley Prentice Norton
+ Faking It by Elisa
: A little chick lit goes a long way.

Kim Kardashian True Reflection Eau de Parfume 3.4 oz.: Honestly,
this is one of the most glamorous-smelling fragrances I have
ever encountered. The plum and vanilla notes are such an elegant
addition to the woodsy / musky tones.

L'Occitane Immortelle Brightening Face Mist: This, to me, is the epitome of
luxury. It literally revitalizes my entire face.

Neutrogena Rainbath Refreshing Shower and Bath Gel: This is such a classic product;
but it's my first encounter with it. The fragrance is just beautiful; and
it leaves your skin feeling so soft.

Michael's Gourmet Coffee in Macadamia Nut White Chocolate + Pecan Turtle:
The latter tastes nutty with a hit of caramel; the former tastes exactly
how it sounds. It's like having dessert for breakfast. Yum!
