U.K. Swap With Paulina

  I received a package with the goodies above from British blogger Paulina.  Paulina has a blog called this girl loves chic.  When we arranged this swap I was on my spending ban and I was really longing for clothes rather than makeup so I asked Paulina for some things from Primark and a blush.  I used to go to Scotland a lot and Primark is the one store I miss the most from the U.K.

  I LOVE everything that Paulina picked out.  If you couldn't tell already based on my blog name, I love bows so I'm in love with the cute bow tights and ring!  I don't want to say too much about the MUA cream blush as I'll be reviewing it soon but is so so nice!  The candies were pretty much eaten right away.  The chocolate ones tasted like Rolos but better.

  Luckily Paulina and I are the same size so all the clothes fit me perfectly.  I've already worn the swallow blouse twice since I received it and can see myself wearing it a lot.  The peplum top is really cute and if you look closely you can see that the middle of the top is a heart, how cute is that?  Skater skirts are my favourite style of skirt so I was happy that Paulina picked out this cute coral one.  The skirt is ribbed and came with the belt I'm wearing.  This skirt was only £8/$12.50 CAD (and British prices contain the sales tax) which just shows you how amazing Primark is

  Thanks again to Paulina for all the lovely things.  I will be reviewing the MUA blush and featuring all these items in outfit posts soon.
