Diana's Make up World

Boots Clearance / Weekend Trip

This weekend I went to Italy for a short break (three days) with my boyfriend.
We left London at 6:30 AM, on Saturday morning and we got back at 11:30 PM on Monday night.

We had only hand luggage with us, so this time I had to really bring down the number of make up and skin care items. (See here what I packed last time for 4 days).

I already had in my mind a virtual list of what to take, including my Naked Palette and some skin care samples.
But on Friday, in my lunch break at Boots I see these on clearance:

I bought all of these for 6£:

  • No7 Age Defence Cleansing Balm (30 ml)
  • No7 Time Resisting Day cream (15ml)
  • No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum (5ml)
  • No7 (for men) Protect & Perfect Moisturising Eye cream (3ml)
  • No7 extreme length mascara (4.5 ml)
  • No7 Smoky Rose Quad
  • No7 High Shine lip gloss in Smile (8ml)
  • No7 40 Khaki Stay Perfect shadow (1.5 g)

Additionally I brought with me:

It might seem a lot but I fitted all the brushes and make up compacts into the pouch neatly. The skin care items and foundation went to a standard airport clear bag. The final result was something like this:

That’s all!

And that was it!

For three days it was exactly what I needed, plus at the airport I got free samples of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum.

Finally, some images from Italy (sorry for the quality of some):

The shoes!

The chocolate

Street market

The buildings…

PS: I’ve been good and I didn’t shop too much!
How was your weekend?

      One of the advantages of living in London is that I have easy flight connections for all over the world, and fast & cheap tickets to Europe. Those who live on continental Europe have it even better, because they drive around all of Europe really easy.
      But of course for all of this we still need funds, so we don’t do it as often as you’d think 🙂
      There are other sides of life in London that are not so nice, but I still love being here.
      Thanks for commenting Judi!
