10 Thoughts: Beauty Travel Edition


Cindy-Lou will DEFINITELY arrive in one piece.

1. “This finely milled, soft as butter highlighter will definitely survive the short plane ride to my destination. Baggage handlers are TOTALLY known for their gentle and considerate handling skills, amiright?”

2. “I absolutely need to take on my trip this obscure eyeshadow brush I didn’t even realise I owned and never use at home.”

3. “The 10,000 bobby pins and hairbands I own have now all retreated to their hiding places just as I want to pack them, how completely excellent.”

4. “I won’t bother taking shampoo and conditioner, because I’ll use the ones in the hotel bathroom.” *Forgets that 5 day old greasy hair is still preferable to using a hotel shampoo and conditioner*

5. “I won’t bother taking a body moisturiser, because I’ll use the one in the hotel bathroom.” *Forgets limbs actually feel dryer after using hotel moisturiser*

6. “I won’t take up extra space in my suitcase with my hair straightener, I’ll just rock the au natural waves.” *Forgets ‘natural waves’ actually consist of birds-nest, ratchet bedhead*

7. “Wow, this exceptionally well-lit hotel bathroom tells me I should be going around with a bag on my head, because I swear those brow hairs/that spot/those dark circles weren’t there when I left home this morning.”

8. “I swear I brought a concealer, I definitely packed a concealer, TELL ME I BROUGHT A CONCEALER.”

9. I’m in a Mecca/Priceline/Myer a long way from home and I can’t check if I already have something similar to this shade of eyeshadow… Common sense would say I do, but it also says ‘another back-up wouldn’t hurt’. *Common sense needs hard slap in face*

10. “Ahh home sweet home… Wait, where’s… Don’t tell me… I LEFT MY [insert hideously expensive beauty product] IN THE HOTEL BATHROOM. *Kim K cry-face*

    Ahaha, I loved this post! I’m sooo paranoid about things smashing, or baggage being lost when I fly. Lucky it hasn’t happened yet – but I always tend to pack things I love but can easily (and cheaply) replace.

      Good idea, I need to do the same, it’s not worth the heartbreak when I lose or break the top shelf stuff! :/

    OMG this post actually made me laugh out loud the entire time!!! My boyfriend thinks I’m crazy. This is me on every trip I’ve ever gone on, especially shorter ones where you think “it’s a good idea to only take a carry on bag” and don’t get me started on using hotel supplies!!! The amount of times I’ve forgotten a razor!!! Oh my god, toooo funny. You’re the best! Made my night! x

    HAHA OMG leaving things in the hotel is my biggest fear. (Psh what hotel, I’m cheap and stay in motels). I’m terrified of eyeshadow smashing so I never bring my beloved Urban Decay palettes haha. Ugh I hate the lighting of hotel bathrooms. It makes me think my foundation is well blended when it is very well NOT.

      Lighting in hotel bathrooms is the worst isn’t it! I actually look like a corpse under those lights. All dark circles and pale skin. Ugh. :)
