Packed and Ready

Just a quick heads up that this will be my last post for this month, as I will be flying out to New York tomorrow and returning at the end of September.

It'll be my first overseas trip, not counting sparse visits back to the homeland, so I'm hoping that a) I won't die on the plane (or other modes of transport) b) I won't get food poisoning or robbed or lose important stuff c) I won't get lost — unlikely, since I have no sense of direction and can't read a map to save my life d) my legs won't fall off from walking too much and general lack of fitness e) I won't bankrupt myself in Sephora. It doesn't help that I've unexpectedly caught some kind of bug in the past couple of days that may or may not get worse once I get there.

Internet access will probably be patchy at best, so I'll look forward to catching up on all your posts when I get back. Normal blogging to resume in October. No doubt, unless a horrible circumstance befalls me, I will be back with at least one major haul post.

I'll leave you with a picture of what I'm bringing in my makeup bag. I think I've been uncharacteristically moderate. Let's hope I can say the same for the return trip.

  2. AWWW but September's barely begun... no more posts :(

    On the other hand, SO excited for you! NEW YORK NEW YORK- omgosh don't go too crazy in Sephora (I know the feeling, I was planning the finances for a trip back to Singapore and decided I would have to allot a ridiculous amount to Sephora shopping alone). Your makeup stash looks rather small- good work on the handful of lip products you've picked! Safe travels and have a great time! xx

    1. Also, SHOCKED that you chose Becca Gilt over Bad to the Bronze! :P

    2. I actually included Essence Pas Des Copper but I forgot to photograph it! The Becca was just a random inclusion - I never ended up using it :p I didn't use any of the lip products either. Basically no time to do makeup in the mornings anyway. I basically put together crappy items that would withstand being tossed around and that I wouldn't be too devastated to lose altogether :p I definitely went a little wild in Sephora - but all up I think I did okay...by an addict's standards lol!

  17. Lovely stuff you are taking with you! Have a great time in NY - I know it's my absolute favourite place in the world. You will bankrupt yourself in Sephora, or you will if you are like me and keep justifying it because it's cheaper in US money. Have an amazing time!!

  22. Hope you have fun and a safe trip! Take care, I'll miss your frequent posts a lot <3 And how do you like the Missha bb cream? Actually...i'll just assume it's awesome cause it's in your travel makeup stash. I've been trying to figure out which one I should get or if I should get a nice foundation...still having a debate :P Anyways, enjoy your trip and you are given permission to go crazy at sephora and the US drugstores ;D LOL.

    1. oh yea, I also have a ridiculously bad sense of direction, i think it's just easiest to ask if you're lost - it always save me so much more time and i don't need to walk as much! hahaha XD

      Delete
    2. It's a nifty product but I included mostly because it's the only foundation I have in a travel size (20ml here, I think). But most of the stuff I brought on my trip wasn't the "best of the best" - it was seriously things I wouldn't mind losing or that I brought because of size/travel constraints. I think you decided on a Chanel foundation in the end? I opted for NARS Sheer Glow for my high end foundation purchase there, but I really did want to get a Chanel one too. But when I decided to buy it, my shade was unavailable. I think for the best :p And you're right - asking is definitely the way to go. It saves so much time and is so quick to get the right answer!

  28. First of all, have a great trip/journey/stay! And, may I say this is one moderate makeup bag for an overseas trip! I admire you. I usually go away on weekends and take three times as much as you do LOL See you on October! xx

  30. oo new york! that's where i live ;DDD i hope you have a great trip here!
    don't worry, you won't get mugged or anything...i feel the media portrays ny as a place where people are all thieves and whatnot. as long as you're not flashy and don't look like a tourist, you'll be fine :D and omgosh, sephora. i have to force myself to stay away from there D:

    nice products! so neat!! :DD
