Blogger's Swap Bag

Hi my Green Friends,

The idea of natural goodies swaps came from Instagram fellow blogger KeepCalmAndThinkGreen - I saw this on her IG page and I thought it is a fabulous idea to swap your items that you don't use for whatever reason with fellow bloggers or anyone interested in green beauty. So this is my little pile of goodies that in one way or another didn't work for me, all are gently pre-loved, and by that I mean used very little. Let's keep the swaps EU based to keep the postage costs down (sorry US folks!) - as a girl Living La Vida Broka I am all about keeping the cost low :) Please bear in mind that due to stupid postal regulations I can't post (or receive) liquids outside Ireland, so all the liquids posted here are in hopes to find a swapping buddy within Ireland :)

Any questions or suggestions for swapping - please email me or find me on my Instagram page here .

100% Pure Pretty Naked palette. Used very little. To be honest with you I am on the fence whether to swap it or not as I kinda think of it as my prized possesion, but then again I just don't reach for it, so I thought I would just throw it out there to see what happens :)

Hynt Beauty (mine is the old version still called Chrisptopher Drummond) in light. Full. Fabulous stuff, find my review on it in earlier posts.
 Lily Lolo eyeshaddows in Cream Soda and soft brown. Photos in natural daylight with no filters. Sorry for exagerrated size of photo, just wanted you to see the real colours in swatches.
Mineral eyeshaddows that came from Etsy Beauty section, all are swatched only. From left to right : Champagne, Latte, Tea Rose and Cocoa Bean. Again, sorry for crazy disproportional photo of swatches!

Any questions, just ask :)

Lots of love,


  1. Hi,

    I'm gonna throw in a question that's a little bit off topic perhaps. I am (finally) going back to Dublin this spring and I am wondering if there are any shops or department stores that carry natural beauty products? Kind of miss the days where I could stock up on make-up at the airport or at the nearest Boots...

  2. Hi Kristin! I am afraid we don't have anything like Wholefoods here, or anything like that where you could find anything your heart desires under one roof. Make up wise it is even sparse, we have more "greenwashing" brands rather than truly natural ones (for make up I rely on online shopping), but I would suggest you to check out Arnotts, Marks & Spencers, Debenhams, Nourish, Holland & Barrett and TKMaxx for a selection of clean products. All can be found in Henry street :) I hope you will enjoy your trip here!
