{Lifestyle} Bloggers United AU Kris Kringle

This year I was once again a part of the Bloggers United AU Kris Kringle swap, you may remember that last year I participated and received some gorgeous gifts from Jac and the Wolf, well this year my gifts came from Roxane from A Beauty Wanderer, and I can’t wait to share with you everything she got for me!

This Kris Kringle swap was hosted by Bloggers United Australia, you email them answers to a questionnaire and they send your details off to one person, and then they send a different person’s details to you, so it all goes around in a big circle! The budget was the same as in previous years and it was capped at $25AU, which can make things tricky!

I sent my package off to its recipient and a few days later my own gift arrived at my door, sent by the lovely Roxane. Roxane did a really lovely job of selecting so many beautiful products for me on such a tight budget, she even went above and beyond to individually wrap each item, and wrote a sweet Christmas card to me too!

I would like to write a little disclaimer and say that Roxane also included a delicious little bag of lollies, however, as I was unwrapping the items in my package I looked up and Kody had already opened the lollies and he was chowing down on them, so they didn’t make it into this post!

Apart from the ill-fated lollies every item Roxane picked out for me was beauty related. Definitely not going to complain about that! She included a tube of OXX Hair Treatment in the scent Summer Berries and Creme Caramel, an ELF chubby blush stick in the shade Pink Lemonade, some Sinful Shine nail polish in a candy pink shade, Yours Truly, a Fifth Avenue French Tip Nail Kit and of course my two favourite items, the Lush duo pack, with a bar of Santa’s Postbox soap and the Dream Cream Hand and Body Lotion and the L’Oreal liquid lipstick in the shade Molto Mauve! I have been saving these items until I wrote this post, but now I am so excited to start playing with all my new goodies! Thank you Roxane!

Hopefully the girl I sent a Kris Kringle to blogs about it because I would love to share what I got for her with you all, even though I am fairly certain she has received her Kris Kringle by now I still don’t want to give away any surprises! If she does blog about it I will leave a link to her post in the comments.

Have you ever participated in an online or bloggers Kris Kringle before?
Do you like Kris Kringles, or do you prefer more traditional gift giving?
