Suitcase Space

Monday, 9 July 2012


This post is for things which, with hindsight, I have deemed to be a total waste of suitcase space.

1. Foundation. – I brought three. I’ve used none. The sun either melts them off, or you just can’t be bothered putting any on. You don’t tan through them anyway, and I’ve found the more brown my face gets the better and clearer my skin looks anyway, thus not needing it anyway. I used a light poweder – Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder – and still only used that three times when we went out for dinner to reduce shine because I have oily skin. I doubt I’ll even wear any when I get back home now anyway as it won’t match my new and improved bronzed skin tone. So yeah. Leave the foundation mousses and liquids at home, total waste. (I’ll just add, my sister cakes her face in the stuff as she has pretty shitty skin and when we go out it looks ten times worse than if she just didn’t put any on after it all melts into her skin and clogs up her pores.)

2. Hairdryer . – Why I thought I’d need one of these in 30 degree heat is beyond me. My hair dries in about 5 minutes flat from the air, which is much healthier for it anyway.

3. Straighteners – What was I thinking. I don’t want to frazzle my already sun dried hair even more. Besides, natural waves and curls look better on holiday anyway.

And now, 3 things which I definitely should have brought with me but didn’t.

1. Strapless Bra – I brought lots of strapless dresses and no strapless bra’s, which have led to me going braless most of the time. (Miley Cyrus would be proud.)

2. My phone/camera cable – So I could upload photo’s I’ve taken straight away and blog more.

3. My Breakfast Scrub by Soap & Glory – My tan would probably look better if I had it here.

Lastly, 3 things I did bring and am thankful to hell and back that I didn’t forget.

1. My girl boxers from Topshop - because when I got a burnt to f*** ass from my skimpy bikini shorts they were they only form of underwear I could wear without being in pain. Plus, I’m not up for going completely commando.

2. Camomile Lotion – This stuff works 10x better than Aftersun on burns, mine cleared up super quickly so I could get back into the sun.

3. I can’t pick between the makeup I’ve been using so I’ll just list it all. This is all I’ve been wearing the whole time I’ve been here: Bougeois Waterproof Mascara, Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown, Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub and my rose tinted Carmex Lip Balm. No need for lots of makeup in this heat, just enough to make you feel like you don’t look like a complete troll when you go out for the day.
