Swap with Sara from Slovenia!

Back in April I did a swap with the beautiful Sara over at Passing Fancy. I absolutely adore her and her amazing blog! And I love her even more being as how we are both Slovenian girls! ;) tehe
 I have a ton more pictures over on my Instagram for you to check out also. I can't figure out how to get them over here, can't you tell I'm such a techie?! lol

We decided to make it Easter themed, since we did the swap in early April. So, I sent her all my favorite Easter candy including Cadbury mini eggs (I die!), Peeps, Pez, and even a little box of Hello Kitty Jelly Belly's! :) I really wanted my Mac Candy Yum-Yum to go to somebody that would really appreciate her beauty. I knew that she loved bright lippies so I sent it over here way. She also wanted wanted to try the new Revlon laquer balm and Nyx butter gloss too. I also sent her a Sonia Kashuk cream blush, Wet n wild Reserve your Cabbana, some Wet n' wild eyeshadows and some more bits and bobs.

Sara on the other hand totally spoiled me and sent me 2 boxes full of makeup, candy, and bath&body products!! I was so surprised with all the great things she sent me! All I really wanted originally was the Alverde blush in the shade Apricot and the Labello peach lip balm. But to my surprise she sent me an asortment of Alverde, Catrice, and Manhattan! But wait we're not even to the best part yet!! lol
She also surprised me with a Clarins instant light lip perfector and a bar of LUSH soap, both of which I had never tried so I was so excited!! :D
Then she sent me a ton of candy from Slovenia and even included chocolates for my two little boys which was so sweet of her, I felt like I wanted to cry! The best chocolates I might add were the Milka hazelnut filled chocolate eggs (OMG Delicious!) and Gorenjka truffles were amazing! Mmm my mouth is watering just thinking about them.  She also sent a sweet little card and decorated the box so cute with stickers and confetti.

Here is a list of some of the things that I received from Sara:

Balea mango leave-in conditioner
Afrodita cuticle and hand cream
Alverde bath salts
LUSH Bohemian? Soap Bar
Clarins instant light lip perfector - 06 Rosewood shimmer
Alverde Blush in shade 01 Apricot (I adore this blush!)
Alverde powder in shade 10 naturelle
Alverde cheek and lip pot - 20 pretty pink
Catrice defining duo blush- Meet Rosy (LE?)
Catrice lipstick- Meet Rosy (LE?)
Catrice lipstick- Marlene's Favourite (LE?)
Catrice nailpolish - Rosy One More Time
Essence Vampire's Love polish- Gold old buffy
Mystery mini lavender polish, maybe manhattan or essence?
Oriflame TenderCare Blackcurrant Protecting Balm (smells sooo good and cutest packaging ever!)
Manhattan Colour Splash liquid lip tint-  So Paris!
Manhattan eyeshadow quad - Brownie Break
Balea lip balm
Bebe young care lip balm - soft rose?
Labello lip balm- peach! :)

Thank you so much Sara for all of the amazing things that you sent me and I hope you are enjoying everything that I sent you! Please keep me updated on how you like everything! :)

Sorry I've been MIA lately guys, I have a bunch of stuff I want to show you guys that I've been loving and a couple of reviews that I would like to do also, but I just got a new phone thinking it would work great to take pics and post them on my laptop but I can't figure it out. If anybody knows how to post pictures from your Iphone5s onto a Samsung Google Chrome book please let me know!! :)

MAC Stereo Rose & Comparable Dupes

MAC Stereo Rose from A Fantasy of Flowers collection 2014.

Broken Stereo Rose from Ebay.
I dropped it on my bathroom floor only the day after I got it in the mail as a birthday present from my Dad. :(

A Fantasy of Flowers Stereo Rose on top and Ebay on bottom.

A Fantasy of Flowers Stereo Rose on top and Ebay Stereo Rose on bottom.
As you can see the top swatch is pinker whereas the bottom swatch has more of an orange undertone.
I think when I where them, I like the shade of the Ebay Stereo Rose a lot more. I love the coral shade and it's a lot more pigmented. When I try on my new Stereo Rose it's not as pigmented and kind of just gives a nice sheen, but I have to apply a couple of layers for the color to show up.

Me wearing Stereo Rose from Ebay. Gorgeous!!

Now let's compare these MSF's to the Milani Baked Blushes....

Ebay Stereo Rose compared to Milani Rose D' Oro. 
Rose D'oro has a bit more of a burnt copper/red tone to it.

Top to bottom:
Luminoso, Fantasy of Flowers Stereo Rose, Rose D' Oro, Ebay Stereo Rose
As you can see, the Rose d'oro is more similar to the ebay msf because it has more orange in it.
Luminoso is more similar to the new MSF in color. Only it does not have the same sheen to it or gold veining throughout. Overall, I'd say these are similar shades but not exactly the same. I don't have anything with the same beautiful sheen that these Stereo Rose msf's give.

Smith & Vandiver Peppermint & Tangerine Soothing Foot Soak

 I just had to share this foot soak with you guys, it is so good!  My Mom first gave me one of these, because she loved it so much. Now I'm addicted! I want to find this brand around me, but it's not sold in any of the stores here. In Oregon it is sold in Fred Meyer's. It smells so good when you open up the little packet.
The peppermint makes your feet tingle and feel minty fresh! Afterwards my feet are so silky smooth.

First fill a basin with warm water, and pour the packet into the tub.

Dip those puppies in and soak your feet for 5 minutes or longer, I usually do for about 10-15 minutes.

To get rid of any dry skin scrub with a pumice stone, rinse, then have a towel nearby to dry.
Slather on some foot cream and go to town with a fresh polish!

Please tell me if you have ever tried anything from this brand, or another foot soak that you like! :)

Taylor- Light Toffee Cream

Rue- Boudoir Blush Cream

Brigitte- Bombshell Mauve Cream

Normani- Sable Mauve Cream

Odette- Sultry Maroon Cream
