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.β™₯️

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: Hi Karen! Thank you for choosing the bee wax seal for me. Kind of funny because I already have one (and what are the odds this one would've been chosen), but without the honeycomb design so maybe I'll use this for an even more special occasion. Hope all is well.

Comment: Of all the postcards to arrive in a plastic bag... :( But I know that's no fault of yours and these things happen. I just was a tad bummed because I love Lou Paper cards! You picked a great one for me too, because I didn't have the dessert illustrations in my collection yet! Thank you very much!!

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!πŸ’žβœ¨
