2 Sleeps till New York! 5 Sleeps till 30! I am hoping to have a few more items scrubbed off my 30 before 30 Challenge soon! The panic has definitely started to kick in along with the butterflies of excitement. I am always so unorganised the week of the holiday countdown. However this time I am on track.
I have completely gutted the house for the baby sitters, and my holiday washing has been done (just needs to be ironed and packed). I have all my travel details printed off, and emailed copies to myself!
Now I just have the pamper prep to sort out. Last night I washed all my make up brushes, they currently smell gorgeous and are all soft and fluffy again. I use my shampoo and conditioner to wash them and it works a treat. I have a fairly strict routine, sounds nuts, but I am really particular about which brush I use for what. I love the Real Techniques Buffing Brush for foundation application and I love the contour brush to blend in my concealer.
Tonight I amm going to do a fake bake then do my Sensationail Manicure - I recommend investing in this kit as it is amazing! Then sort out my makeup bag for going away. I'm not sure what the allowance is for going to America i.e. how many mls you are allowed to take on the plane with you. So if any of you could fill me in on this, that would be great. For the main make up bag - I am trying to travel as light as possible (going to be tricky), but going to pick the essential items and a day to night eyeshadow palette. Will share my picks with you soon.
I have never really been on a long haul flight before so if there are any tips or essentials you would recommend I take with me, please leave me your thoughts.
