For those of you that didn't already know on Monday (14th October) I fly out to Massachusetts with my husband to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary (and eight years together.) We're staying there for a few days and then we're driving up to Maine, spending a few days then, then over to Vermont for a few days and back to Massachusetts. We were recommended to visit New England to see the 'fall leaves.' From there we will then fly to Chicago for four nights. It's going to be an amazing holiday and I'm so excited for it.
I've come up with an ingenious idea (in my opinion) to take small versions of things like shampoo and conditioner etc so I can buy brands over there. For a few years I've been organised enough to take half used make up items but I have previously always taken a big bottle of shower gel for example and when it's time to come home I've thrown the rest back in the case for the way back. This time I want to buy things like that there so I get to try out brands I've not tried before. Am I crazy or does this sound like a good idea to you?!
I also figured that it's an absolute certaintly that I will be bringing lots of make up back so I'm going to resist the urge to take my two Naked palettes which generally go everywhere with me. I'm bringing one blush, one bronzer etc and really limiting it. I know last time I was so keen to play with my new purchases that the stuff I brought didn't get a look in!
Anyway I've made a video to show you what I'm taking with me. As I say in the video please contact me by any method, Twitter, Instagram, Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) carrier pigeon (just kidding) to tell me if you have any recommendations of places to go to, outlet malls, shopping places, anything. I already know I'm going to the Ben & Jerry's Factory in Vermont but that's about it.
I will be online every day so definitely look out for Instagram photos and Twitter updates. Also I have some boards on Pinterest which show the products I'm hoping to buy when I'm away, all other suggestions welcome!!
This blog will be updated daily - business as usual. At this moment in time I'm not sure where the scheduled posts will all go up or I may swap them for hauls, etc whilst I'm away if I can get some decent photos.
