Pakistani Beauty Blogger Swap – FAQ

23 Jan
A wonderful blogger Atia , gave me an idea that we should do something like secret santa among all Pakistani beauty bloggers. The idea was brilliant and Sana and Me discussed it initially , then we took feedback from some of our lovely bloggers and finally we decided upon that Yes ! its time that Pakistani beauty bloggers start a swap.
 
So some of girls wanted more information on the whole swapping concept as they are new to the idea . I came up with the this FAQ
 
What is a Pakistani beauty/Makeup swap?
 After the sign ups , We will randomly assign a blogger to whom you will anonymously send the gifts. Once all bloggers receive their gifts , we will revealing their identity. 
 
I am not a blogger , can i be a part of it?
so far this is only for bloggers We will update you all when we ll be having with non bloggers friends too
 
What is the Budget ?
Its the first time we are planning this, so agreed upon the budget of Pkr 1500. 
 
Does shipping include in the budget ?
I am sorry but shipping doesn’t include in the budget
 
Can we tell what products we would love to have?
Right now , its not possible , we will ask you to mention one wishlist item , which is easily available to get in pakistan , if other swappe can manage to get that , its great but to be honest its totally upto them.
 
Will i get a blogger for the same city i am ?
Since we will pair bloggers randomly. So we cant promise that
 
I am short on money , can i back off?
We are giving a month to prepare , but Of course we cant force anything  , but last minute backing off will create such a hassle and in future we may only include selected members.
We will update this post as soon as we get more questions/queries , please feel free to ask if there is anything thats confusing you. We want to make this event a fun and social one , so in future we can hold more activities like this
