Good news, swappers – today is the day that you will find out who you have been paired with! Firstly, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has joined my Budget Beauty Blogger Swap, because without you, there wouldn’t be a swap!  I had an overwhelming response from UK bloggers, so unfortunately I couldn’t pair everyone with overseas bloggers, but I’m sure you’ll all still have a fun time swapping!  Also, I had a few issues getting hold of a couple of people’s email addresses and blog links, so if you still want to take part and you don’t hear from me today, please let me know and I will sort something out.

I will be emailing everyone the details of their swap partner later today, and here’s what happens next…

*The budget for this swap is £10/$16/€12.  Please spend the full amount.*

  • Once you have your partner’s contact details, it is up to you to get in touch with them and exchange postal addresses.  It might also be a good idea to tell each other your colour preferences and what types of products you like and dislike, to ensure that your partner can choose products that are suitable for you.
  • It’s then time to shop – I hope you all have fun choosing budget beauty products for your partner!
  • Once you have put together a nice little collection of products, package them up and pop them in the post to you partner (if sending abroad you may need to declare what’s in the parcel, so make sure you know the guidelines of the country you’re sending to). Please obtain proof of postage when posting and email an image of it to your partner, just to prove that it’s on its way. Then wait!
  • When you’ve received your parcel, please blog about what you’ve been sent and then link me to it so I can share everyone’s posts.

PLEASE NOTE: There are restrictions on sending nail varnish, perfume and aerosols via the Royal Mail, so it is probably best to avoid sending any!

If possible, please have your parcel packaged and sent within 2 weeks, and don’t forget to get proof of postage when you do send it and let your partner know when it’s on its way.  I’m sure none of you would like to miss out on receiving a package, so lets keep everything fair and make this a successful swap!

Happy Swapping!  I hope you’re all as excited about this as I am.
