I am typing this blog post from the desk in our Las Vegas hotel room. It’s 10.15pm here but it’s 5.15am UK time and I’m yet to get so much as a nap. I’ve been up for almost 24 hours and the shakes are setting in. We haven’t done much yet as we’re just wiped from the flight and would you believe it’s bloody freezing out? We have a busy day planned tomorrow however so I will be retiring to our huge plush bed soon to fall asleep gazing at the absolutely epic view from our penthouse suite!!! More on that later, I haven’t taken many photos yet but have of course vlogged my arse off!
I had a few requests on twitter for a ‘what’s in my carry on’ type video but I feel I’ve kind of overloaded YouTube with Vegas at this point so I’m going to post it here n case you’re all sick of my excited face. If you could see my face now… not so excited.. in fact I wouldn’t want you to see my face right now! I did show everything I was taking and the bag etc in my Countdown vlog which you can watch here (skip to 11mins in if that’s all you want to see) but I will give you a little run down here for those who prefer the old pictures and words approach.
I’ll start with what’s in my ‘makeup bag’ carry on. Some of this is just ’cause I decided I wanted it last minute and others are what I’d consider ‘in-flight essentials’
Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc
YSL Touch Eclat in Shade 1
Stila eyeliner in sting ray
Urban Decay eyeliner in zero
MAC tinted lip conditioners in petting pink and soothing beige
Lancome mini Hyponose Drama mascara
Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil sample
Elizabeth Arden 8 hr cream & Lipbalm
Moa Green Balm
Benefit Dr Feel Good
Valentino Valentina perfume sample
I actually stayed makeup free during the flight and felt so much better for it. I didn’t apply makeup ’til we were checked in and in our room. Right now my skin is thanking me. Flying leaves you so dehydrated, I reapplied my lotions and balms every few hours and felt fresh upon arrival.
So what else did I think I NEEDED with me on the plane..
DSLR (not pictured)
I didn’t use my camera (shocker) or my laptop on the flight and I’d be tempted to pack them on the way home as my carry-on was so heavy but between them they are worth more than this trip cost so I’m nervous to part with them. I used a huge handbag from H&M purchased for this purpose and packed my regular handbag to use while I’m over here.
So… for those of you that wanted to know what I was carrying on.. hope you found this interesting and I apologise for any spelling or grammatical errors.. I’m pretty much running on empty right now and am lucky to still be able to function at this level. I’m about to upload todays vlog so look out for that later today (UK time) and I’m hoping to have my first picture post for you as well. First full day in Vegas tomorrow… best get some sleep.
