I've been hinting for the past few posts that I will be having luggage problems (and turns out I'm accurate. Overweight fees here I come), which is my way of letting you know I will be flying out of the States tomorrow. Unfortunately, this also means I will be updating less for the next three weeks. After my 30+ hour flight, I will be lingering in Malaysia for a mere ten days before hauling my bags over again for a two-week trip with my family on the East Coast (Miami-Niagara Falls-New York-Boston). Never have I been so full of excitement and dread to go home. Those 30 hours of stale cabin air is going to ruin my skin.
Which brings me to my question: do you put on makeup when you travel? I may be an absolute fiend about makeup but when it comes to long haul flights I refuse to get decked out in any way. I've seen women with mascara while crossing the Atlantic Ocean, and at the back of my mind I wondered if they removed it when they went to sleep and reapplied it after, or had them on all the way. Wouldn't it be uncomfortable? Isn't sleeping in your makeup a sin?
However, my luggage is grossly overweight. As per @poseylass' suggestion, I should wear red lips and look for a male agent when I'm at the check-in counter.
But I think my situation is so bad no amount of makeup can help. Ah well.
Speaking of red lips (actually it's totally unrelated), I decided to have a bit of fun and join Bobbi Brown's Pretty Powerful 2.0 contest. She's choosing 51 winners (one from each state) and one of them will stand a chance to go to New York for a master class with Bobbi herself, win some goodies, and be the face of the campaign. I will be so thrilled if you'd like to vote for me, which you can do so here.

Now I have to go board my plane. Have a good weekend and see you when I'm on the other side of the world! xo
