Our Beauty Bloggers Secret Eid Swap!



Back after a few weeks of disappearance; reason being my previously ailing laptop got a final hit thanks to my daughter and so it had gone for repair. Now it's been returned to me good as new and first up is the Secret Eid Swap post that was supposed to go up on the 15th of this month but got delayed due to the a fore mentioned reason.

Pakistani Beauty Bloggers Community hosted the Secret Eid Swap this past Eid which like the first swap held in the beginning of this year was wonderfully exciting and fun-filled.

The concept it followed 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 for Eid. Afterwards we had to blog about the things we had sent and recieved and link the blogs!

So my package arrived one morning, everything was nicely wrapped up with a cutesie letter along with it. The return address was of Karachi plus my partner had left a clue in the letter so I had a slight inkling of who it might be!
Later on it was revealed to be the gorgeous Sidrah Nayyer of the Beauteous Blog.


Things I recieved:
-Maybelline Color Seensational Vivids in Shocking Coral [read review here]
-MUA Single Eyeshadow in Shade 19
-MUA Single Eyeshadow in Shade 01
-MUA Intense Kisses Lipgloss in Quick Kiss
-Essence Miami Roller Girl Blush[read review here]

I'm so smitten over each and every item that I recieved, the first four item were on my wishlist and the last item was Sidrah's choice and I LOVE the blush she chose for me, I couldnt have chosen better, thank you Hon! :) <3

The Swap partner assigned to me was the lovely Sara Hassan from Sara Hassan's Blog , it was fun shopping and packing up the things for her, I hope you liked your present Sara! x

Loved every bit of this activity! Many thanks to the PBBC for arranging it <3
