About Me

Hello! My name is Karen and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm a university student majoring in Criminal Justice. I love receiving pretty stuff in the mail. I'm currently obsessed with; snail-mailing, skincare and makeup! My favorite color is yellow. I normally don't like bright colors but somehow I find yellow a very positive and cheerful color. I'm not the most bubbly person but I do believe by wearing something bright, will help brighten your day. I also enjoy the smell of the rain and the beauty of nature. Winter is my favorite season, I get to burn my favorite candles and cozy up with cute warm sweaters.

I Have also been obsessing with baths. There is nothing more relaxing than filling up my tub with hot water, while running my favorite bubble bar. I like to go extra in my baths, I LOVE using bath salts, bath oils, bath bombs and anything related towards creating a fun bath. As a full time student and full time employee, it's very important for me to dedicate some of my free time for self-care.♥️

Beauty Swaps

skincare

Skincare is my number one priority. I mostly use anything that provides an intense hydration for my dry sensitive skin. I don't like to use products with a strong fragrance on my face (fragrance-free preferably). Here is a short list of products that I use in my day/night skincare routine:

  • facial moisturizers
  • serums for hydration or anti-aging
  • toners
  • essences
  • eye creams
  • sheet masks & peel of masks
  • facial mists

make-up

I'm very basic when it comes to makeup. I don't use bronzers, contouring products, and crazy lip colors. Please do not send me dollar store makeup, lip gloss, blush, single eye shadows, lip tint and anything cream formulated. Here is a short list of products that I would prefer:

  • brow liners in dark brown
  • mascara
  • foundation powder in light medium
  • liquid lipsticks
  • lip balms
  • nail polishes
  • make up brushes of any kind

Comment: <3 Yesterday, I received the lovely swap. It was fun to go through everything. The Minnie Mouse hot pads and the apron were adorable. I can't wait to bake some cupcakes while using those items. The purse is large and perfect for my belongings and for my upcoming vacation. I like that blush it actually smells really good. The face powder is very similar to my favorite that I use in Pakistan. The color of the face powder suits me quite well. The facial products will be great for the weekend to relax. I am very excited about the fade cream. I can always use that! All of the other cosmetics are very nice as well. I will probably give my daughter a lip gloss. Thanks for doing this swap with me. I really enjoyed it as these are items I hardly get out to buy for myself. Have a nice day and happy swapping! <3
Response: I put a lot of thought into it, I’m glad you enjoyed everything!💞✨
