Our Beauty Bloggers Secret Swap!



The Pakistani Beauty Blogging Community hosted the very first Secret Beauty Swap among it's members earlier this month. It was an extremely fun-filled and delightful activity for everyone who participated.

The concept it follows is the 'Secret Santa' a tradition of christmas, in which members in a group are randomly assigned partners to anonymously send gifts to.
In the same manner all of the participating bloggers were paired up, and we were assigned somebody to send swap presents to anonymously, we were told their preferences and after consulting their blogs we had to buy things they would love within a priorly fixed budget. A deadline was given to send off the packages so that everybody would get their presents in time. Afterwards we had to blog about the things we had sent and recieved and link the blogs!

So I recieved my package one morning unexpectedly and was a little surprised at the unknown name and return address [Islamabad] on the parcel, when suddenly the realization struck that it could be from my secret swapper!! I ripped out the packaging in excitement to discover some lovely makeup items and a note! I had my suspicions about who it could be, mostly from the return address and Al-Fatah shopping bag these were packed in :)

Later on the names of the swappers were revealed and mine was the lovely Areej Usman from Areej Usman's Blog. Thanks once again Areej for the lovely items you selected for me! <3


The Swap partner assigned to me was Marib Maqsood from Marib's Blog. An extremely sweet and talented blogger from Lahore. I checked out her recent blogposts and keeping in mind her preferences arranged for the things she wanted. It was so much fun shopping for her and she had made it easier too by mentioning the exact products she wanted! I really hope you liked your presents Marib! :)

The best part of the whole activity was ofcourse guessing our secret swappers. All thanks to Pakistani Beauty Blogging Community for hosting this exciting swap, it gave us a chance to experience the thrill of shopping for another makeup junkie and on the whole brought us all closer together as a community! 

I hope you enjoyed this post, do let me know your thoughts!!:)
