Just a few months ago I began speaking to a girl called Jessica on twitter from America. She seemed lovely and it wasn't long before we started making plans to do a swap. If you've never seen or heard of this, you basically swap products with someone else (preferably from a different country), in order to try out new things. We decided to swap beauty products that were only available in our country, meaning that both of us would be able to try new products we might never have otherwise tried. If you'd like to see what I bought for Jess, please go and check out her video on the swap here!!
I have never been to America before, nor have I spoken to an American or owned anything American before this experience so on the day my package arrived I was so excited!! So here we go, here are the things Jess bought me...
The New York Post!! I really wanted to read a newspaper and see some everyday things from America so I asked Jess to get me this

I am so happy with everything that I got and I will definitely be following this up with mini reviews on all of these products to let you know how I get on with them. I want to thank Jess, who is such a lovely person, for taking the time to get to know me and picking things you knew I'd love. I hope we keep chatting our days away and you've become a good, other side of the world friend!
Thanks for reading
