Leaving UK in less than 2 weeks now, so that means these are crazy packing times! Last night, I was home alone. Mr.CZ had gone to Newcastle and he'll be back till later this evening. I layed almost all my makeup and beauty products on the bed in our guest bedroom. This bed just has a sheet, and we didn't get any pillows and whatnot for it because, you know, no point. These are most of my beauty products (save for some skin & hair products I keep in the bathrooms) that I'm packing to take to India.
I decided to throw myself into the MESS, because it's always been my dream to sleep on/next to a pile of makeup products..hehe. Btw, I kept my left knee bent in most pics, coz I was trying to hide a a big (healing) bruise. I fell down on the bridge a couple weeks ago. Always been a quiet bridge, but that day, a couple was walking towards us, and they saw me fall. Because that's how life is - you never fall without an audience.
Perfumes, some makeup, Jewelry Stands. Butterfly is by TU from Sainsbury's. The heart one is from New Look, I got it for 50% off recently. Gold glitter clutch is a phone case from Primark. real Techniques Blush Brush (don't know why it's here)
Things I'm sending by courier/mail:
This is a tricky situation, because I can't send liquid products like foundations, nail polishes & perfumes, which are the heavy ones. I don't want to send most of my palettes and blushers, coz I'm afraid they'll break. So that leaves me with lipsticks, brushes, pencils, and other stuff I don't care so much about.
Things I have to - in the husband's words - "throw away":
- Most Hair & Bath Products- Shampoos, Conditioners, Masques, Shower gels, Scrubs. I haven't bought anymore recently, so they will probably be almost finished or halfway gone by the time.
- Very Old products - This includes old foundations & skin care products.
- Products I don't like.
The cute and limited edition ones, I have flattened out and will go with the courier (Mr.CZ's idea). The rest, chucked.
Right now, I have put them all in one plastic bag.
I think they'll stay with me. I'll probably try to get a bigger makeup bag that could accommodate them all.
Outfit: Forever New Skirt | Top I'd never worn before from hometown. It's a woolen sweater with georgette/chiffon bishop sleeves pinned with bow pins at the wrists. I lost one bow pin. It came with a matching muffler-scarf thing. | New Look Shoes. I never take shoes to bed. These are brand new and have never been worn outside =D | Topshop Gold Belt. | Forever 21 Key Necklace | Accessorize Gold Hoop Earrings.
I slept at around 6 am. I did something else around 4 am after sorting all this (you'll know what!) I have removed most of the stuff from the bed, because it's Mr.CZ's "dressing" bed. Now I wait for him to help me really pack them up. He's an expert in these type of things.
If you have any special tips on compact-packing breakable things, like nail polishes, please share them!
