Inside My (Weekend) Makeup Bag

This weekend, for the first time since Christmas (!!!) I was able to go home to see my family.  Even though my university is only a two hour drive away from my home town but it seems like I'm so busy between school and work that it's almost impossible to find the time to come home and visit.  

I wanted to share with you what I packed for an easy/relaxing weekend at home!

Disclaimer: I have a serious attraction to deluxe sample sized products and promotional "Try It" kits so when I travel I try my best to pack my smaller products which will maximize space in my suitcase.  I even marked every item that is either a deluxe sample or that I transferred into a sample pot for travelling- just so you have an idea how much I love mini products. They're just SO CUTE.

  1. Hello! Posted about my favourite bloggers, and you're in it, of course! I'd love it if you left a comment to show your appreciation!

    1. Thank you so much ! I tweeted about it !

  2. Oh I'm a total sucker for travel size products/samples/trial sizes. I have a heap of them - ah well, I'll just have to plan more holidays so I can use them up ;-) I just did a couple of similar posts on my blog (one for makeup, one for toiletries) if you fancy a snoop!
