An Amazing Beauty Swap

My friend Nardine, from Live...Laugh...Love and I arranged to do a beauty swap box and here is what I received.  Gobsmacked is not the word - I love everything. Thanks Nardine.


wow such a pretty box 


It's packed full!


Look at all the goodies!


crinkled tissue and feathers

I was blown away with the contents - all things I will use and one of my most favourite bath oils ever REN Rose Otto Bath Oil - I squealed and ooh-ed and ah-ed while unwrapping.



WOW what a lovely collection of goodies - here's what I received:

REN Rose Otto Trio - Body Wash (50ml), Bath Oil (30ml) and Body Cream (50ml) presented in a beautiful box designed by de Gournay.
