    myprettypinkbox Sold Out and more

    So, I've been MIA for quite a while. Well, not exactly,since I still leave my footprints off comments. But I haven't posted much cuz seriously, I 've been tryin' real hard to save up for a good cause. & what might the good cause be? Well, somethin' not beauty related or what happens to be more personal. I'm like the eldest of 5 siblings. Talk about a big family, eh? Yeah, so partly, I get to take 1/4 of the responsibilities of helpin' my Dad out for the family. And part of that meant financial wise. Which is kind of crucial at this time around, right? With all the recession going on & all 4 other sibs are still in school. It sucks. SO anyhoo, onto the part by means of saving, $5000 is needed for my baby sister's eye operation. That's like Php200,000+ in the Philippines to correct a muscle in the eye. And we're not even sure yet if that's all it'll take. My sister was born with the other eye smaller than the other. As pictured below. I dunno what it's really called, but it's like the other eye doesn't have an eye lid and no lashes, or somethin' like that. When she was a baby, that eye would like bring a tear every once in a while & would come worse when she has colds. (OMG! I hope she doesn't read this.) She's now 13y/o & starting to have crushes and all, & I feel like sometimes, she gets self conscious bcuz of the eye. It breaks my heart each time I see her sweeping her bangs to that poor lil eye to keep it hidden. We don't want her to have self-pity someday. So, I agreed to help out. After all, she's my sister. And I would never trade her for anything in this world. So, nuff about the drama...... I have other things to say. =)


    ABOUT THIS PRETTY PINK BOX...

    When I first heard & saw myprettypinkbox from Kim Tia in her previous posts, I was stoked. I wanted to own one, too! So, then a couple of weeks passed and I completely forgot about it, not til yesterday when I went to the site and found out that:

    I was like..OMG! This isn't possible. :( It made me so sad. They're sold out. I wanted to get one so bad. But that wasn't the saddest part about it 'til I also saw this. . . So, I said to myself.."Ok, so Canada is like really near U.S, right? So, why are they just starting to ship now?" Wtf! Shipping International immediately popped into my mindless brain! This is sooo not happening! I emailed Linda right away to ask if they do ship international. Which was so dumb of me, bcuz it was already written on the site that they don't. Forgive me if I hadn't read the entire thing. So yeah, I was a little bummed abt that. But I really wanna get one. Hmm, so I thought, maybe I could get my Dad to order it for me (since he lives in Cali) & send it to me here. But wait, Ms. Linda replied:

    "At this time, we only ship to the US and Canada. Where do you live? I love to swap and if I haven't swapped with anyone from your country, I can with you if you're interested. Thanks!"

    So, I told her I was outside Canada/US & won't be in CA for a while. So, I cannot wait long enough to try the pretty pink box. But weeeeeeeee! I still can't believe this is gonna be my 1st swap ever! HAHA! Okay, so here's the thing, can uhm, I get a lil help here? Since I'm new at this and all, can I ask for some suggestions what I might put in my box? She said she's not looking for anything in particular, face creams/cleansers, make-ups will do. Hehee, but ya know, I'd like to add a lil more. So, if you're reading this, please lemme know what you think would be nice to add in the box. Ok? I would really appreciate it. I AM SO EXCITTTED! :)


    ***EDIT
    I have always wanted to do a little swapping cuz I've seen/read so many of y'all with such pretty goodies. So, feel free if ya wanna do some swappin' wif meeeh :) I'd be happy to.

    awwww you couldn't be swapping with a nicer gal than Linda my dear! She's absolutely wonderful.

    and as for what you should swap, in the past - what I have tried to do is send them unique items, like picture postcards where you live or are from. and some of your personal "favorite or holy grail items" to share. and some fun things -- I've included things like stationary, candies, chocolates, ..dolls... be creative and just have fun with it!
