Hello my bloggy lovelies and apologies for the lack of posts this week. I got back from my holiday last night, and that can only mean one thing - back to blogging! (and back to work on Saturday but we won't speak of such things just yet..)
It's not been the sunniest of weeks unfortunately - infact it's been one of the cloudiest holidays i have ever had, but nonetheless it has been a much needed break for me and i still got to see a bit of sunshine inbetween the cloudy moments.
You may have read my last post outlining i was struggling to keep to my 20kg luggage allowance.. and lo and behold, on the way back i had to part with a hefty sum of 28 euros just for the sake of a couple of extra tops (and shoes..) I must have been unlucky with the sour-faced woman on the check-in desk as normally they seem to let me off with a bit of extra baggage...
I'm an over-packer and always will be (i always seem to get one of those bright orange 'heavy' stickers slapped onto my suitcase - the shame). Try as i might i will never be one of these ever so organised and clever people who know how to pack a 'capsule wardrobe'. I will never understand how they manage to do this..
So i thought i'd kick off with a 'whats in my makeup bag' post - but in the form of a sunshiney-holiday-version :)
So this is this years holiday makeup bag (i say this because each year i end up buying a new one for some reason). It was from good old Primark and cost me no more than a fiver.
I bought it simply because it's not too big and i needed to force myself to take less slap..as i normally go a bit crazy and take my whole entire luggage allowance in make up. Also it has two sections when opened so it was handy for separating products.
