ah this is so cute oh my god the world is a vast weird wonderful place it can be hard to imagine what it’s like to live in a different city all the way across the globe so we’re going to pair two strangers from two different countries and have them send a care package to each other full of their favorite beauty style and self care items this time we’ve paired a mall in Los Angeles and so hone in Sydney hi my name is Emma and I live in Los Angeles California I’m 28 years old I work at BuzzFeed as a freelance producer I’m super into fashion and makeup and love skincare it’s something that I’ve gotten into as I’ve been getting older ever since I really moved to LA it’s super cool because literally in a place like Los Angeles you can walk out your door and just be inspired by all the cool trends I love living here hey guys I’m so hung I’m 26 years old and I live in Sydney Australia I am a video producer for BuzzFeed oz in my spare time I also direct some fashion style beauty editorials I also have a cat Kepler who is my son I am really into fashion makeup skincare I wouldn’t say I’m an expert at it or anything but I definitely use makeup and fashion as a way to express myself every day and also what I’m going out I have to say that I’m actually really nervous for this mystery box swap I really want them to like it I am so excited to receive this box I can’t look to say what I’m all picked out for me I’m excited to have some new things to play around with this way it’s gonna be really fun hopefully this box challenge will give me the confidence I need to be a better gift giver and I’m really excited to also make a friend potentially each box can be decorated in any way the sender likes but they should contain one cosmetic item one self-care item one fashion item one snack and two items to be opened later at a specific time going for a bit of a shock we’re in the mall finding something you know we’re looking I have an idea of what I want to get them all but like a good I shouldn’t get it help me out because I always need a second opinion and the approval of my friend two kinds of it exactly the things that I want are easily accessible I think and really define what it means to be in LA well that’s so fun that’s so so very summery oh wow I think she’ll really like so dramatic are you describing every big Australian and unnatural [Music] no pictures please and now we’re gonna go and shut us down for a mom being Australia this is my favorite this is like I chronically Australian it’s the correct way to eat fries I think it’s like these training really yes one more location to go that I think they’ll be able to find the last thing we need there so I got something fun in the mail today okay yeah yeah this is some hefty tape America have like really strong tape am I doing this right oh my god it’s very heavily protected [Music] that’s who I am if this was a highlight color I would wear it is this a velvet card apologies for the lackluster wrapping job what do you mean this is amazing some represent me some represent Australia and some I chose thinking of you in mind inside I hope you find items that bring you a little joy oh my god I’m so excited this is such a key at everything fashion okay oh my gosh it’s like a belt bag something that I personally have been wanting to get into in the side fanny pack back it’s a really bold red it’s something that I’ve seen a lot of people wearing this is so nice I love the color it fully goes with what I’m wearing as well absolutely Rob they are sunglasses these are so cute they’re like the skinny cool bad bunny kind I’m not sure if tiny sunglasses has been a trend in the u.s. but it’s been a massive trend here in Australia I love wearing tiny sunglasses they’re not too dark so you can wear them indoors and outdoors oh my god very cute I own a similar glasses to this but these are definitely the cooler version of the ones I have self care galaxy diamond glitter violet mosque as if this isn’t 100% made as a mom know who I am I am obsessed with everything to do with space it’s a glitter mask if she’s having kind of a slow day she can put it on and it looks like the freaking galaxy purifying and firming diamond amethyst super very complex for all skin types oh my god I’m gonna use this tonight coffee and coconut exfoliating mask oh this is amazing I got em all a coffee and coconut exfoliating mask I love that it’s natural it exfoliates your face so that’s a bit of Australian self care I love a good exfoliant and it’s coffee which literally might be my favorite thing in the entire world next we have the cosmetic item oh it’s just a lipstick glitter top ah liquid glitter gel after you put your eyeshadow on and you want to kind of look a little bit you know extra this is basically just a glitter highlight for your eyes oh that’s so beautiful I love this it’s a like a galaxy sparkle thing I’m so into it okay already a brand that I’m not familiar with its Mecca Mecca Mecca Mac I can read the cosmetic items that I got through mom is this liquid highlighter in a color which is called rose quartz I’ve got one myself and I find that it has a really beautiful shimmery effect on my skin color I thought if I would like this and you can kind of see the color it’s like a beautiful pinky gold very excited about this I love a good highway the snack takes a prime real estate I’m an international gal and I appreciate international snacks oh it’s Vegemite I spent a year living in London and I’ve successfully avoided Vegemite but I don’t think I can avoid it any longer because it’s in this snack right now this is one of my favourite things I go on shapes conic snack in Australia they come in lots of different flavors like barbecue pizza this is a new flavor it’s Vegemite and cheese these are so delicious they just smell like cheez-its they truly do taste like a mix between cheeses and gold finish that’s my snack analysis for the day ladies and gentlemen cheetahs what is this flamin hot lemon like lemon I wanted to get her something that really shouted la wooden first opened it and what else other than hot cheetos I’ve been in basically having this forever and it’s still my guilty pleasure whenever I’m having a slow day I actually I’m really bad at handling spicy food but lately I’ve been kind of trying to increase my tolerance maybe I’ll open this later and have a try Lily you’ve come to the end and these are the two open leaders open next time you’re doing your makeup to go or for a shoot open next time you order fries what could it mean open when you need to pamper yourself okay so I feel like this might be another self carry vibe open when you need to get something off your mind they’re perfect for like going out which I do every weekend feel like the time for me to open these will be very very soon so okay so I just tread on the liquid light and make sense my foundation and I’m standing right against the window so you can see this look this glow it’s very dewy but very natural I love it okay so it’s 3:00 p.m. which means snack time and I have that subscribe my garden done I don’t normally do well with spice but this is really good oh I can see me going through these packets very easily and very quickly I just shared the Vegemite chips with Troy like goldfish and freedom cheese’s or something like that so I said they’re really good though you want to try Cheetos oh my god okay oh yeah yeah the color doesn’t look natural yeah that’s really addictive thank you okay I’m hanging out with some friends today and I think it’s time for me to open the next gift okay this is so pretty I’m gonna be incorporating this into my look today super excited I got em all a super colorful eyeshadow palette it’s very hostile which I’m really into right now is pastel colors you can kind of see on the back it shows like examples of colors and I thought why not get something for a mall that next time she’s going out and she wants to try something new with her face she can do some colorful eyeshadows I went for like the brighter blue I’m also not like an eyeshadow expert so I’m still kind of playing around with everything I think I really like it okay head it out but I cannot pretty on my new glasses so I’ve just come home from a really long day at work I thought this is the perfect thing to open right now okay such a ball it’s got beautiful art on the fryer paper goods 160 page journal for this one I wanted to give her something that helped her when she’s maybe feeling in a creative rut or she just needs to get something off her mind and what better way to do that then to write it down in a very cute journal yeah I hope she uses this when she wants to get a little creative but also when she needs a little comfort when you know things get a little hectic I have been wanting to consciously be more mindful and just focus on appreciating everything that I do have in my life I think this is a great thing that I can use just everyday jot down some things that I’m grateful for and remember them time for me to open this gift okay this is what was inside another iconic Australian thing is having chicken salt on your fries whenever they ask oh do you want salt wood chip installed on your chips it’s always chicken salt I finally got a chance to try the chicken salt he’s pretty good I was really skeptical because I thought it’d be like a fun sauce or like you know catch up with like a fun ingredient it’s interesting to see what other people eat with their fries so yeah self cast sundae this is the day of the wake where I’ve decided to talk to myself for sure so let’s hide myself oh my gosh I have literally never heard of a lip sleeping Moss a lot of people have been talking about this product I’ve used it and I actually really liked it when you go to sleep you wake up with really soft lips you can conquer the world it smells like strawberry is this bigger than any lip balm I’ve ever used and I can just tell but overnight it’s gonna stick to my lips and keep them so nice and moisturized in Australia it’s actually went to right now so it’s freezing and my skin gets really dry so this is gonna be a hundred percent part of my new like skincare routine so I’m having kind of a chill day today so I think I’m gonna try this mask it smells amazing it smells exactly like coffee and it’s making me really crave coffee excited for that smooth Australian skin this is the most like bujji’s Clayface must’ve ever used sparkles oh hey it’s me just a galaxy face and my friend the moon had so much fun shopping for the gift I also had a lot of fun trying out the products that I receive I really enjoyed this whole experience it kind of reminds me of like when I was 10 years old and had a pen pal across the world and would send letters to each other and get to know each other so it was kind of like a nice nostalgic feel in a way I don’t know I mean I feel like a lot of times we stick with the same types of things that we get and it’s really cool to be able to be given a chance to try something that I would normally especially something from a different country I want to do it again with the more people in all parts of the world it was such a good experience [Music]

    They should swap Cardiff and Buenos Aires! (I'm Welsh and Cardiff is my capital city, so I'd love to see what types of Welshie gifts we could get. As for swapping with Buenos Aires, I love Latin America and would love to see what kind of traditional/self care things they would send!)
