A thing you should know about me is that I love presents. Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries aside, I’ll find any excuse to get gifts.
And I mean ANY excuse. We’re talking half birthdays, 6 month anniversaries and of course passing any sort of test. BTW Eye tests are totally included (especially if you’re blind-as-a-mole like as me – any sign of stable eye strength calls for a huge celebration to me!)
So as much as I hate to admit it, 2013 is fully underway – can you believe it’s MAY next week? The fond memories of Christmas are gone, I’ve had my birthday and it’s another 6 months until the next present heavy session. BOO HOO.
So what can we do about it?
One of the present-joys I discovered last year was that of the blogger swap. A.k.a bloggers give presents to other bloggers and they get one back!
Present fans, are you listening? You’re getting a great deal here. Other than anniversaries how often do you get to buy a present and have someone guaranteed to buy one back for you eh??
|Want one of these?|
But, its not just about the presents of course.
It’s also a great way to meet new people and make new pals. My first ever blog swap was with the lovely Beka from Beka’s Beauty (a lifestyle and beauty blog) and she was such a doll – she sent some amazing products which I hadn’t used before and LOVED them. And we’re now social media friends. Ahh friendsss.
So how does it work?
Basically, you send your details to me – and then you get paired up with someone who’s agreed to the same budget as you.
Where I can, I’ll pair people up from different regions so you don’t get the same ole deal you can get from your local beauty emporium.
Next? You then message each other, find out what you love, like, don’t like – create a little package for your box pal – send it off and BOOM! Another little package will come to you around the same time!

Wanna take part?
If you’re interested – leave a comment and send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
- Basics: Your name & your blog
- Budget: Either £10/£20/don’t mind
- Parcel type preference: Beauty only/Open to anything
- Nearest city
- Any other details that might be relevant – ie. if you’re on holiday & your parcel may be delayed in May.
So now, let’s give it a deadline – that makes things official! Please “register yo interest” by Monday 6th May. I’ll then email you that week and you can start putting your package together!
Please note that this is a UK swap only.
Any questions, just holla.
LETS GET SOME PRESENTS ON THE GWAAAN. Hooray!
Have you taken part in a blog swap before? If so, what were you sent?
Would love to hear any thoughts or tips for a successful blog swap!
