I'm off travelling!

Hello lovelies!

Hope you are all well and Monday hasn't been too painful for you all?

I have some exciting news! So,for the past few months at my work there has been talk about needing people to visit one of our offices overseas to do some training and coaching. I've never really been able to travel very far, mainly due to being a poor student for so many years, so I jumped at the chance and put my name down. 

A few weeks back talk about the trip became more serious and it was confirmed that I'd been selected to go and train out the subject area I specialise in! So... I'm off to India!  It's true, as you get older time goes quicker, and now I only have 5 and a half weeks left before I fly over 4000 miles for 7 weeks!

Just writing that scares me!

So at the moment I have a mixture of the following emotions-

Scared
Excited
Nervous

On top of these is also the feeling of joy about the fact I get everything, yes literally everything, planned for me, all I've had to do is have a few injections and organise my malaria tablets. 

The bit I'm most excited about is the extra week I've booked whilst I'm out there to visit Goa. OHHH yehhhh!

Have any of you been to India before? Tell me about your experiences!

So.. you know what comes next... 'holiday' booked, shopping commences!

So far I've snapped up a few bits in the summer sales (this baffles me..) and a few bits from ASOS Primark range





I'm also lusting over the Laura Mercier travel portfolio


Now this one if £60 from The Urban Retreat but its been sold out now for a while but they do have the petite one in stock for £40 Petite portfolio. To be honest I'm not planning on taking tons of make up with me so the petite would do me fine... now to just find a spare £40..mmm! 

Do you have the petite version? Would it do for the day to day make-up? Can you recommend any other make-up bags?

Ohhh i could ramble on all day about the things I need (want) for this trip, can you think of any holiday essentials that you would recommend for me to take? 

Ahhh the thought of staying in a beaut hotel, getting dinner cooked for me each night and not having to do any of my own washing is amazing!

    I've never been to India but would love to go one day.
    I also really want the Laura Mercier Travel Portfolio, it sounds like it would be perfect for your trip.
