who doesn't love getting mail??

so today is the big christmas in july reveal. i was super excited to find this swap because the mailing period was exactly during the time i was going to be home! you see, here in costa rica the houses don't exactly have addresses. unless you count "100 meters west and 50 meters south of the church in the center of town" to be an address. yes, wayyyyyyy behind the times. i didnt want to risk someone trying to send something here and it not arriving and vice versa. so i was excited to be a part of this swap!

i was paired up with britt from bee little queen who literally is one of the sweetest bloggers out there. we instantly clicked because we realized we had both written very similar items down on our wishlists. 

britt sent me an awesome mix cd after i told her a bunch of artists that i liked and she chose similar artists that i don't yet listen to! next up she sent me some lovely cosmetics, my favorite being a crackle nail polish. i had heard of these before but never seen or used one and now i own one! i'm excited to use it one night when i'm going out :) she also sent me a little make-up holder which will actually be perfect to put in my school bag to hold some lip-gloss, tweezers, mascara, etc. britt also sent me a pair of turquoise earrings from f21which are exactly like something i would have picked out myself, a book that i can't wait to read, and some yummy starbursts! i may or may not have mentioned that i am obsessed with candy haha.

so to all you other swappers who participated, merry christmas in july :)
