I'm Going to New Zealand!

This evening my boyfriend and I are going to New Zealand for one week. We fly in and out of Christchurch and will be spending New Years Eve on Fox Glacier and the next few days in Queenstown where a lovely wine tour has been booked for us. To say I am excited would be an understatement. I have pre-written a few blog entries which will be released over the next few days.

The only thing I don't like about travelling is packing of course, it is so hard to assess what I will be needing in terms of clothes, shoes and beauty products. I was going to try and just bring one ziplock bag with me but I will have to "borrow" my boyfriend's allowance and use his ziplock bag too. It's pretty bad.
 One bag was never going to cut it.
If you look at it clockwise I am bringing Estee Lauder's Cooling Eye Illuminator, the Garnier Roll On concealer, Pure Fiji showergel, MooGoo Fresh Cream Deodorant, L'Oreal's UV Perfect SPF30+, John Frieda's Fly Away Tamer, Origins Modern Friction exfoliator, Jurlique's Moisturising Hand Sanitiser, a Napoleon Perdis mascara/lipgloss combo, Ojon Hair Oil, Clinique's liquid facial soap, Jurlique's Ultra Firm and Lift cream (I will use it as a night cream), Ole Henriksen truth serum collagen booster, Chanel's comfort cleanser, OPI Nail Lacquer in Skull & Glassbones, Estee Lauder's pleasures perfume, Sportsgirl sunscreen (repackaged since the bottle was over 150 ml, b collection by Bloom brow box, various Kerastase-samples, OPI's Nail Envy to make my nails stronger, Triple Action Cleanser from Alpha-H, Kielh's Creme de Corps body lotion, Dr Lewinn's Spot Clear Gel and lucky last - John Frieda's Frizz-Ease.
Even though it looks like I have everything I could possibly need I have actually managed to forget lipbalm so I will have to sneak it in somewhere.

Do you think I've packed too much? Are you a super packer?



  1. Haha love this post, I always take my bf's suitcase and clear bag space! Its a given! It sounds like you are going to have a great New Year, enjoy!

  2. Have a wonderful time. I had exactly the same holiday 8 years ago...spent new years eve in fox glacier at a gorgeous restaurant overlooking the glacier...then headed off to Queenstown to celebrate my 21st. U will have a wonderful time!!!
    As for packing, I have it down to a fine art as I love to travel...I find less is best ...altho think my beauty case is always the one thing that I have trouble zipping up!

  3. You just made my day:)

  4. Thanks everyone, luckily no one asked him why he needed so many cosmetic products We had such an amazing trip and NZ is just so beautiful. I want to go back.

    I did use everything I brought though so I am proud of that. But should definitely down-size for the next trip! Xx
