Valentine Swap


It's swap time! If you remember my Christmas swap (here), then you'll know I had a lot of fun organising everything!

I love swaps! In my opinion, every established beauty blogger should do a swap at some point in their blogging career! It's a fantastic experience that allows you to try out new products you wouldn't usually have access to, and create wonderful relationships with other bloggers!

And what better holiday to spread the love! Valentines Day is the perfect day to spread some beauty blogger love and send some sweet goodies to another beauty blogger!

You may remember that I am on a spending ban (here), I know I know, I shouldn't really be spending. But a swap isn't really spending, in my opinion, especially if I keep my limit low. I love to share my love of beauty with others, so I'm going to make this one exception! (That may sound like a huge excuse, but to be honest I've had this planned - in the most part - since Christmas!)

The Guidelines:


I've had to renew these a little bit, so forgive me if I sound harsh, but I did have a few slight problems last time so please remember that your partner is a real person, just like you, so treat them with respect!


This will be international! I'll accept general preferences on what country you'd like your partner to be from, but I can't make promises! (If you would prefer to keep it domestic, I'll see if I can arrange it.)


All participants must have an active blog, (and must follow me, either via GFC, Hello Cotton or Bloglovin') so that we can all blog about what we got, and so that your buddy can check your previous posts out to see what you're interested in!

Make sure your country will accept shipping beauty products, etc. If you're unsure, do some research before agreeing or do not participate!

Make sure you get proof of postage. This is to prevent any scams or anybody not receiving their post. Once you get this, send me a copy or picture of it to my email address so I can confirm this has been done! (This is to make sure everyone is being fair!) This can be anything from a tracking number to a receipt, just as long as I can see that you've sent something!

Please only include new and unused items. Your buddy is not a garbage bin!
Please also check everything you buy to make sure nothing was used prior to you buying it! You wouldn't keep it if it was used - neither would your buddy!

And remember, if you don't send anything to your buddy, or you aren't fair, you will be at the mercy of the entire beauty blogging community. We are a lovely community, so please keep that in mind and be respectful of your buddy and all of us when swapping. This is why I'm asking for proof of postage.

So if you would like to take part, just fill out the details in the form below! This will only go ahead if I have enough interest, so make sure you spread the love and get this happening!

If you have any problems/questions/concerns/rants, feel free to email me:
jasminehuston@hotmail.com or tweet me: @sweetaholic


Don't forget to add the picture to your sidebar, so everyone knows you're taking part!

Leave a comment below to let me know you're taking part! I will be taking interest for a week, so next Monday will be the cut off!

--

The details collected in this form are ONLY used for pairing you up, and will not be used for anything else! Once paired up, the form will be deleted!
I do not take any responsibility for what is sent, what is not sent, and the general outcome of the swap.

    1. Well, since last time there was a bit of confusion, I suggested that people work it out amongst themselves... some people like to swap with $20 while some are happy to go over $50 :)

  9. Unfortunately I don't think I would be able to participate in this, but I just wanted to say how wonderful I think it is that you put so much effort into organising such awesome things! We appreciate that it takes a heck of a lot of work and that sometimes things go wrong, but seriously - your dedication to blogging is amazing and doesn't go unappreciated!

  14. Yay another swap! I probably shouldn't because I need to be saving money, but I'll do this instead of buying beauty products this & next month (so maybe if you know, partner me with someone who is willing to spend less?) :D It was so much fun doing the Christmas swap!

    1. Haha I think majority of us are going to be from Australia this time, sadly, which means cheaper postage at least?? :P

  18. Hey! Thanks for the awesome swap first off all!
    Now for a question, sorry if you answered it in your post, I could find an answer.
    Is this going to be just paired up between two partners, or will it be secret Santa style, getting a package FOR someone, and getting a present FROM someone different? Will it be secret or will we know whos getting stuff for us?
    Thanks again! This is awesome! I'd love to be with someone from the UK, or Australia (then the States, in that order), but getting another nail blogger would be crazy awesome :)

    1. That's ok Stephanie!
      This won't be Secret Santa style, I'll be pairing up two participants who can then discuss their price range and share any wishlists they may have! I think this is just a little bit easier!
      Thanks though :)
