On the 30th of August I turned 22. Thank you to all the people who said happy birthday and thank you to everyone who entered my birthday giveaway. I thought today I would share with you some of the presents I received.
I have recently been running a giveaway in which the winner would get 22 pieces of jewellery in order to celebrate my 22nd birthday. I had so many entries and yesterday (the day of my birthday) the giveaway ended. Rafflecoptor randomly selected the winner for me.
Just a few months ago I began speaking to a girl called Jessica on twitter from America. She seemed lovely and it wasn't long before we started making plans to do a swap. If you've never seen or heard of this, you basically swap products with someone else (preferably from a different country), in order to try out new things. We decided to swap beauty products that were only available in our country, meaning that both of us would be able to try new products we might never have otherwise tried. If you'd like to see what I bought for Jess, please go and check out her video on the swap here!!
I have never been to America before, nor have I spoken to an American or owned anything American before this experience so on the day my package arrived I was so excited!! So here we go, here are the things Jess bought me...
The New York Post!! I really wanted to read a newspaper and see some everyday things from America so I asked Jess to get me this

I am so happy with everything that I got and I will definitely be following this up with mini reviews on all of these products to let you know how I get on with them. I want to thank Jess, who is such a lovely person, for taking the time to get to know me and picking things you knew I'd love. I hope we keep chatting our days away and you've become a good, other side of the world friend!
Hi everyone. Firstly, I am so sorry that I have not done a blog post for so long, I guess things were just too hectic. However, I am back and ready to post and post and post some more!!
Last week I won a blog giveaway!! In this giveaway I won two Revlon just bitten kissable balm stains. I had been wanting to try this product for a while, so I was so excited that I won two that I could try for free. I received the shades honey and darling.
I loved the shade honey. I've already read so many reviews about this colour, and I can see why it is such a big hit. It's a nude/pinky colour that can be worn everyday.
This is the shade darling. When I first saw the packaging I was slightly worried as it looked REALLY purple. However, on the lips its a nice purple/pink colour and it is very wearable for day or night time.
These balm stains apply really creamy and moisturising, so on first applying them I was concerned that they would in fact be a lipstick and not dry into a lip stain. After a minute or so, the product dries, staining the lips. I have worn both of these shades throughout the day whilst eating and drinking and am pleased to say the colour stays. This is the first lip stain I have used that felt moisturising instead of watery and drying for the lips.
I am in love with these and I am looking to purchase the Rendezvous shade soon.
Have you tried these balm stains? How are you liking yours?
