Another Parcel From Kitty

So, last week I received another parcel from Kitty. It arrived on the 8th, but I haven’t been able to blog about it properly until today as work, study, and life just seems to have taken me over this week.

I had bought some of Kitty’s unwanted Memebox items off her. If you don’t know what Memebox is, go clicky linky and take a look. It’s like a non – subscription form of a subscription box from Korea, and it usually contains the most adorable things you could imagine. Or, just really useful stuff. Go look!

I did not photo the outside of the packaging. Nobody needs to know my address. But this was the box inside –


One of her repurposed Memeboxes 😀

I had bought a few things, maybe six, seven things, so when I opened the box –


– it looked pretty full!

I have seen a lot of people talk about these Shara Shara sheet masks, so I am excited to try one. It was a nice surprise as I hadn’t bought one from her!


There are sheet masks, a clay mask, eye creams, a lip tint, lip essences, eyeliners, a primer, more eyeliner, a small roller of perfume, and some miniatures.

I had asked for the perfume for Lucy’s Christmas present, but I gave it to her Wednesday in Maccys. Because.

I hope to review almost all of these, so there’s plenty more posts to come! Oh dear! I’m getting a few too many lip products now!

Hopefully Lucy will review her perfume, when she isn’t busy setting up her amazing new cross stitch chart business. We are both businesswomen now!


International Swap – Krissy

Something I love doing is receiving gifts and packages from far – flung places. I like to find new things, or specifically request hard to find things or discontinued products.

This week, I received this parcel from America –


I had arranged a swap with someone called Krissy in the USA. The budget was $40, or £25.

Krissy wanted some football shirts, so I sent her a Celtic shirt, some England shirts, a Liverpool tee, a hat that I think was Manchester Utd. and some pens with Chelsea branding on them. I also included some prok scratchings and kinder egg chocolate – not the egg, the small bars.

As this was a swap with specific requests, in return I had asked for some NASCar tshirts. We don’t get NASCar tshirts in the UK. We don’t even get NASCar on television any more!


This was inside my package –


FOUR! I got FOUR tshirts! I couldn’t have done that myself for the budget, even with the amount I paid on top for shipping, I would have had to have paid around $100 the last time I checked out the NASCar store.

I also received some sweets –


Yum! Never had candy corn before. They taste like fudge.


We have Werther’s. Not this flavour though. They weren’t amazing, but theu were nice, a few at a time.

I aldo received some Hallowe’en themed chocolate that I neglected to photograph.

In all, though only my second swap with this Facebook group, it has been my best swap so far. I love my tees. Thanks Krissy!


Completely Random Product From Kitty – Luke Charcoal Nose Pore Strip

I received this nose pore strip in a box from Kitty –


There were some instructions on the back, in Korean. There was some pictoral advice, so I wasn’t completely helpless.


This is what it looked like out of the pack. You had to peel the plastic off, wet the black bit and put it on your nose for some time.

I really, REALLY have so little to say about this product. It didn’t do much for me, but it had little work to do at the time. I get blackheads, but it’s not like I get enough to justify a product especially focussed on one area of my face just for one problem.

It did leave a big, black mark on my nose that I had to remove though. Maybe that was the tack, dirty up the nose to make you scrub it clean!
