This is my third BFC Mug Swap, run by Kallie over at But First Coffee. The idea of the swap is to get matched with a partner, international if you wish, I got matched with Iva from Croatia, which I was super excited about, I've always fancied visiting. After you're matched you get to know each other via email for a couple of weeks then have a set date to send your parcel out before.
You also get a set budget so you both receive the same value of bits and pieces! You don't have to include anything other than the mug but I always like to include some tea or coffee and some beauty bits if that's what they like! Iva was so lovely and did the same!
Along with the sweet mug I received, she also included some bits which I'm guessing are only sold in some parts of Europe as I've never heard of them before, which is great because I love trying out new stuff! I got a bag of foreign sweeties, not sure what they are exactly! Also some chocolate almonds which sound delish and a pack of Happy Tea!
For the little beauty bits there was a moisturising cream for face and body by BioBaza, which I've never heard of before but it's 99% natural and looks lovely. There was also a lip balm by the brand Melem, again new to me and finally a lip and cheek tint by the brand S.Fresh!
Have you taken part in a mug swap?
