  • Different Kind of Swap

    Don't you love coming home from a hard day of work or back to your dorm after a long day of class and see that your mail man has left you a package. You get inside and open the package. Surprise! It's filled with goodies and I mean goodies. Things that would warm any girls heart. Maybe nail polishes? Some headbands or hair bows? Maybe some of those cute earrings from the beauty supply store? In any event you feel the anticipation as you go through the box of goodies not knowing what you'll find next. As of recently I've been browsing YouTube like sooo many other faithfuls and I came across things called "Swap hauls" and they seem like so much fun to be quite honest. It gives you a chance to get to know someone else and see what's in other areas that you probably wouldn't reach and get things from stores you may not have heard of. I love the idea of making new acquaintances and trying new things all through the bond of girly stuff. It's all apart of the experience. I brought this thought here because I see so many things like curl box, and all those other type of subscriptions and got a little jealous I won't even front, why can't we do our own thing with a twist?.

    Now I'm going to be completely honest I'm on the budget of a college student like many other ladies, but that gives me an advantage whoever I may swap with can be even more of a diva on a budget We can make it do what it do boo! But i do love to go out shopping, its a guilty pleasure *hangs head* Hopefully this sounds appealing to someone else and we can just have fun and get to know each other, try new products Sound good? Check out some of the swap videos and let me know what you think maybe we can all get to know each other and swap like crazy!

    If this sounds good we can come up with :
    -A budget
    - Something that you may have wanted to try but may not be in your area
    -A list of 10 things that you like as in colors or your favorite candy basically things that make you, you and can give the sender a chance to personalize your box and get creative with what they put in it, but also tweak things around a bit
    -How far along are you in your hair journey, are your relaxed, natural, or transitioning
    -A date to exchange or have the box sent out by

    Hopefully I'm not alone here

        If I wasn't already doing the fall swap, I'd do this one. Maybe if this one ends up being later...Sounds fun though!

                  Yay! If your in! here's my list:

                  I'm Tyler from Queens, NY. My hair, Elle and I have been on our hair journey for 9 months now, I'm 100 percent natural.

                  1. My favorite color is yellow, but I'm a big fan of bold and bright colors as well
                  2. As of late I've been heavily into prints/fabrics ie: that tribal/aztec and leopard all that good stuff
                  3. Do i really have to say anything hair? lol headbands, clips, bows, beanies, products.
                  4. I'm an accessories kind of gal. Earrings, bracelets, ya now.
                  5. Nail Polish. I don't now about you ladies, but I refuse to pay that 6 bucks for a mani. I'm an avid do it yourselfer? lol is that a word?
                  6. Smell good things. Candles, sprays, mist
                  7. I'm just beginning to dabble into make up
                  8. Something you really like or enjoy
                  9. My favorite candy is Reeses Pieces, yes I'm a foodie
                  10. Random fact, my favorite number is 2. lol I was running out of things

                  Attach your list so we can see what we have in common so we can get to swapping. If you can't think of things feel free to just post whatever comes to mind. From there we can set- up who's gonna swap with whom, a budget and a date.

                        Shakeeta girl...

                        If I said "Go Clemson!" I wouldn't be true to myself I'm a Bruins (True Blue and Gold) fan even though I'm on the East coast, but aside from that everything else is on the money! How old are Mackenzie and Mason? They're s cute in you're profile pic.

                        @leaderlnss post your list

                            Tyler, thank you! Mackenzie will be 3 in January and Mason will be 6 months tomorrow! I can't believe he's that old because it seems like I was just pregnant yesterday lol.

                            Tasha, it is a small world! The year you graduated was my freshman year

                              I believe that everything happens for a reason.
                              People change so that you can learn to let go,
                              things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
                              you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
                              and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
