How to: Pack for a sleepover
I am officially the worst packer in the world. I always do it last minute and bring too much stuff. It is just so boring. Even when I moved from Norway to Australia I packed in the morning and my flight was at 10am! I ended up with a bag that was 5kg overweight and I don't even want to mention my carryon, it was so heavy. I am starting to improve on my packing skills but I still have a long way to go.
Earlier this week I was staying at a girlfriend's place and I was determined to not bring too much since I was just staying overnight. I was working the next day though and didn't want to go home in between so I had to be really smart with my packing. My bag couldn't be too heavy to lug around either so I had to repack it a few times and then run out the door since I was late. My bag was full of randomness as usual.
I made sure all my beauty stuff minus lip-products were packed in my little gold Mimco toiletry bag.
I was able to jam-pack it with necessary products and I used them all. If we go clockwise we start with Colgate's Sensitive Pro Relief which is the perfect toothpase for me since the teeth-whitening. Then there is a small sample size of Benefit's universally flattering Coralista blush, Estee Lauder's Sumptuos mascara, Benefit's Posie Tint, the cute sample I received of Thierry Mugler's Angel Eau de Toilette which smells great, Estee Lauder's Time Zone eye cream, John Frieda's Frizz Ease Finishing Creme which came in this month's GlossyBox, the UV Silk Shield Foundation from Invisible Zinc (one of my favourite sun protection products), Natio's Glow Skin Brightening Face Balm, Clinique's liquid facial soap in extra-mild which also works as a makeup remover, b collection by Bloom Quick Fix kit which has 6 concealer shades in it and lucky last, Natio's Brow Kit for beautiful brows.
Bringing the IZ foundation was really clever since my moisturiser did not contain spf. I also used the Benefit Coralista blush as an eyeshadow which I applied with my fingers. Posie Tint went on my cheeks and I used the concealer where I needed it. Since I managed to forget my hairbrush, the John Freida finishing creme was perfect to tame my hair.
I hope it's not just my face that goes red after too much red wine the night before!
What do you bring for sleepovers? Are you a great packer which can give me some much needed inspiration?
