Beauty Box Swap {REVEAL} & "I Made It For You SWAP"

TGIF My beautiful Friends! I have looked forward to this day since Monday. I think we all have!

I've been looking forward to spending the day with my nieces and my honey and his family at a small water park and enjoying some of FL's sun this weekend.

Unfortunately we may have to postpone that, you see I live in Homestead a little town near the entrance of the Florida Keys. As exciting as that sounds to a few that don't live there, any little tropical storm or hurricane that gets lost out there, we get affected with all the rain and winds. I bet it doesn't sound exciting anymore, huh?! So most likely I will spend my Saturday morning helping my Mom put up hurricane shutters, if we don't and our home gets damaged then the insurance companies won't pay us. Lots of fun, huh?!!

Hope those who may be affected or hit by this storm are taking the proper precautions to prepare early and stay safe!

On to happy thoughts! I participated in the Beauty Box Swap that Tiffany and her friends hosted.
This was a fun swap...turns out that we were not each other's swap buddies, so I got to make 2 new friends. I was assigned to Meredith and Laura was assigned to me. It was great getting to know them both.
So here are the goodies that I got in my swap. 

  I love love love the eyeshadow. The gold is so shimmery, the peach is glittery and best of all it lasts all day.
The mascara is my absolute favorite...exactly the one I use daily.
Love the lipgloss smells and tastes yummy. Not that I've eaten it or anything. :)

I'm crazy about my crackle polish! One of my bestfriends, always used crackle polish and I never dared to try it...and this one is GREAT! Can't wait to try it with a red polish.
Thanks again Meredith for all my goodies!

  1. Sorry to hear about the precautions you have to take even to get insurance to cover anything if something should get hit! Stay safe during the storm!


  2. Hi Libby,
    I hope you have a great weekend despite the storm! Growing up on the east coast, I know what it's like. Fingers crossed things don't get too rough down there. Please keep us posted!

  3. Ooh, that nail polish is cool!!
    Stay safe, Libby!

  4. Hey Libby! I'm SO glad you liked everything! That eyeshadow looks fantastic! I'm going to have to try that brand next time I'm out :o) I still need to write my post on all my's at the top of my to-do list! I'm LOVING everything you sent me...especially the new can never have too many!
