I have nothing but positive things to say about it. The people were so awesome and laid back--and that's saying a lot coming from this small town South Georgia girl. We're nice to everyone!
I left a piece of my heart there and would love to visit again one day.
When I visit other places, I make it a point to try the local cuisine, snacks, and of course makeup. Lucas' Paw Paw Ointment is an Australian staple of mine now--you can use it for practically anything.
So that brings me to today's post. Youtuber friend Melissa Bubbles asked if I wanted to do a makeup swap with her and I was so excited! I sent her a bunch of American brands and she sent me a mix of Australian brands and other fun goodies. Check it out below:
My faves were the lip treatment trio, the lip products (the lipsticks have yummy scents), and the shadow palette! I loved it all! Thanks Melissa!
She also sent me Cadbury (the American version of Cadbury is nothing like that of the UK and beyond) with Vegemite. Let's just say it's an acquired taste. ;)
In the video below, you can watch my enthusiasm over all things makeup as I go into detail on the items above. And y'all, I was sick when I made this, so um yeah! Oh, and there's a Vegemite tasting at the end! Plus, you get to hear my "attempt" at an Australian accent.
