- Don't put off packing for the last day:
When you know you have to travel it's good to prepare beforehand. When you're flying the next day, it can get a bit overwhelming knowing that you have to sort all your stuff and begin packing just then. So start putting stuff away. It doesn't have to be in a suitcase. Just reserve a section in your cupboard or your room where you can place these things. You'll be so glad later.
- Make Lists:
Make lists of things you have to buy before you leave, stuff you have to get done, things you have to pack and a final check list of essential items that you can quickly look at before you step out of the house like passport, watch etc. Once you've made a list/lists stick them on your fridge or mirror or just someplace where you will surely look at them. Lists are a small thing with big benefits.
- Be well rested:
Although air travel is mostly restful, still you don't want be all, huh? When you are asked to show your passport. Okay here's the truth; airport makes me nauseous. Specially if I'm traveling alone. I am fine in the plane, flying, taking off and landing is actually fun. But waiting lounges and immigration lines are a nightmare to me. So I need to be alert and feeling well to stay sane. But not just for those reasons, being well rested means you can think better in times of unexpected events for instance, a flight delay.

I have recently caught the bug of buying candles. Especially scented ones. In a closed room it is easy to not realized how stuffy it has become so I shall make good use of these. Below are the ones I have been loving.
I have always loved Betty Crocker's French Vanilla cakes and this candle is surely something yummy as a scent.
I was not too sure about this Mountain Berry scented candle but these were half the price of the Glade one so I didn't want to let go.
Swoon. I love cinnamon scent.
Last but not least, I tried to create a home-made candle using this idea but didn't cut off the wick right so I cheated and put a small candle in there. Still I think it looks very pretty at least.
What are your favorite scented candles?

This is the stuff (apart from clothes) that I have decided to carry for a short trip where I won't have much time to be fussy so no cleanser, toner or any of that. Just the essentials. The shampoo is still missing here but I don't really want to buy those small bottles. Thinking of getting a full size instead.
Am I missing something here? Hope not.
Then I had an idea. I got this old lip gloss wand which had dried up and I dipped it in some clear nail varnish. Nothing fancy, a low quality of clear nail varnish. Next, I dipped the wand in purple glitter pot and glitter stuck onto the wand. I applied this over a coat of MUA nail varnish in shade 3.
