Just a quick post today, showing you what I’m taking away for my four day weekend down in Camber Sands. Literally can’t wait to get away for a couple of days, maternity leave is great when you can think of enough things to do – not so great when you’re bored senseless! Of course, baby will soon be taking up the majority of my time in the not so distant future, so I really shouldn’t complain about boredom – I won’t know the meaning of the word very soon!
Fear not however, I have scheduled a few posts for you whilst I’m away, ranging from a guide to boosting your Boots Advantage Card points, to my top five blogs to follow right now, to a little Christmas gift guide. Enjoy!
For now, lets take a look at the goodies I am taking away with me:
|Top Left: Simple Kind To Eyes Revitalising Roll On, Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in 250 Glamourous Pink, Rimmel London Stay Matte foundation in Ivory
Top Right: Samples from the September Latest In Beauty £1 beauty box – Natura Organics Rich Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner, Skin Doctors EyeTuck and Mary Kay Timewise foundation in Ivory
Bottom Left: My trusty Sex And The City compact mirror from Boots, Lush Colour Supplement Multi-Purpose base colour in Light Yellow, my as-yet-unopened Avon Extralasting mascara in Black
Bottom Right: My ‘Holy Grail’ product Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream lip protectant, Avon ColorTrend PencilPlay eyeliner in Black, Collection 2000 lipstick in 3 True Moisture, Avon Treu Colour eyeshadow in Emerald, MUA lipstick in Shade 2
As yet, the only items I haven’t tried out are my new mascara (present from my Nan) or the samples from the beauty box. I’ve been waiting until this week to use them, because I thought that it would be fairly easy to take some sachet samples (also, read a great post about how to sample haul from Yu here) with me rather than a whole washbag full of stuff. However, since I have a makeup bag jam-packed full with the stuff above, I think I pretty much failed on the ‘packing lightly’ thing.
Look forward to my reviews of the samples & the mascara upon my return… can some samples from a £1 beauty box be all that great?
What do you carry in your travel makeup bag?
I’d love to know!
