Irish Blogger Secret Santa 2014

This year I took part in the Irish Blogger Secret Santa for the second year in a row. I really love the idea of this a sit is a way to find new blogs and treat a fellow blogger to a Christmas treat. Like last year it was organised by the lovely Total Makeup Addict   This year the spending criteria was €20 excluding postage. 

When shopping for my blogger I found €20 went a long way. Nina from Nina's Bargain Beauty was chosen for me. I've met Nina a few times and was thrilled to get her name. Be sure to check out her blog to see what I sent her and other great posts.

On the 3rd of this month, my very own present arrived. In it was a lovely package and christmas card from Emma ( I've spoken to Emma a few times on Twitter and a Facebook group I help admin, but only met her a few weeks ago at a blogger dinner.

To say I was blown away by her gift is an understatement. I received a few favourites of mine - Dream Dots and Cleanse Off Mitt. Both were very welcome as I like to have a supply of Dream Dots in the house at all times and my Cleanse Off Mitt was looking like it needed replacing.

There were also so products that I haven't tried before. One that got me very excited was the Karora CC cream. I've wanted to try it for an absolute age and can't wait to give it a proper outing.

There were lots more in the package - I Love polishes from Penneys, a Catrice lipgloss, an Essence bronzer, a Max Factor mascara (also most welcome as I was holding off buying a new), a Wet N Wild Eyeshadow, Style File and a bar of Lindt dark chocolate orange. I love dark chocolate and hubby doesn't so this was a nice treat just for me. 

I can't wait to take part in next years Secret Santa. 

Have you tried any of these goodies?
