This all began from her post here about the January Ipsy bag. She received the SOHO concealer brush and Nailtini nail polish in Frappe, while I received the shadow brush and Nailtini nail polish in Bloody Mary. I have plenty of shadow brushes and have too many red nail polishes, so I asked my dear friend if she cared to trade. She was very excited to! She then took it a step further and started sending me lists of things she was willing to part with from other services, so I started cleaning out my stocks of things I would never use.
I quickly realized that I was getting the better end of this deal, and sought to fill in the gap a bit. I remembered that a few years ago I had offered her a vintage apron to use on her dress form for her jewelry show display. Of course I kept forgetting to send it to her right after I offered it and well at least she has it now! Then I threw in a handmade burlap rose from my little table arrangement.
I popped it all in the mail and waited for the trade to be complete!
And I waited.
Haha, poor Amy right about this time had a ton of parties to plan and prep for so she was a little delayed in sending mine out. But oh my. It was worth the wait.
Next were the nail lacquer items that didn't work for her: Essie nail lacquer in "sexy divide", Color Club polish in "blue-ming" and "put a pin in it", Julip Nail Vernis in "Holly".
The makeup samples: what looks like a full size Stila bronzing serum, and a sample size of Urban Decay's Naked Skin Beauty Balm; both of which look like they will be best used in the summer when I have a little color to me.
Last was Epsom Salts white tea bath salt. I have never used bath salt before and can't wait to try it out. It smells really good!
The things I sent her: Photos by Amy/ThatWinsomeGirl (I sent this weeks before beginning the blog so I never thought to take my own). I love seeing photos of how she really may be using the extras :).

I really hope that we might turn this into an annual event! I really had a great time searching for things to send her and enjoyed my box of goodies that she selected for me!!
