Leave me comments coz i wanna know more about how you feel. U can leave your name as "unknown". blah out your unhappiness or happiness here.We bloggers love swap but of course some made our day and some spoilt our weeks. I wanna learn more from you guys in order to perfect my next swap and not forgetting receiving nice swap too. We deserve the best as a receiver and sending the nicest/perfect items for your fellow swapper. Dont you think so?

Inspired to start this topic when i read these from an awesome blogger: "RANT :Don't ever buy from her "
Therefore i wanted to write something based on swap which is commonly done in the blogger's world :)

I swap on MUA but it's a pain sometimes because people can become difficult so I much more prefer to swap with bloggers now. Bloggers are so nice and friendly, like you!

On a MUA swap, I've gotten broken blushes because the person did not pack the item carefully or put any bubble wrap around it. I was disappointed because I looked everywhere for the discontinued item (plus the person was rude later). I swap for mostly lightly used items. I always add extras to my packages, mostly skin care samples or candy.

The only people I've done multiple swaps with are bloggers because they're so nice. I would not post how unsatisfied I was with a swap unless the person stole from me and I wanted to warn people not to swap with her. Good luck in swapping Summer!

so far i have very happy experience with swapping! probably just lucky i guess. my rule of thumb when swapping:

1. i do it becoz its suppose to be fun, i will not let myself get stress over it.
2. i do it on good faith, i dont mind sending out first (n i'll be telling myself mentally prepare to lose it)
3. i remind myself, that the things i sent out are things either not suitable for me, i no longer need it, so its for a good cause, i dont mind never to see it again
4. extra is not a must, becoz extras may not be suitable for the recipient as well, unless its not skincare, just generic stuffs like hair clips thats fine
5. i dont feel disadvantage by swapping, instead i feel i got a better deal, becoz the postage is definitely lesser amount to the items i will be getting!

so, i make swapping fun, i dont want to think too much of it, and occasionally there are runaway swappers then its just bad luck. i dont want to think it as a loss because it will make me unhappy n feel rotten :)

ps: plz dont think im super generous, its just my motto: if i dont touch this item in 3 mths, i know i'll never ever use it (like clothes, shoes, makeup, skincare) so why not give it to someone else? beats going into the bin!
