I can’t believe how fast this week has passed by, I feel like it was Sunday yesterday when I was worried about what a stressful week it would be (was I right? Yes…). It’s Friday today which means the weekend is finally here (yey), but it also means I’m going to Rio tomorrow and listen; first of all I haven’t started packing! Second, I have to pack only hand luggage!!
When it comes to what kind of clothes to bring it’s not really a problem, it’s summer there and I don’t need much, as well as I’ve become quite good at packing light after a lot of traveling.

Though, what I’m not good at is choosing which beauty products to bring! These are some of  the products I want to bring, not even including my shampoos and conditioner etc:

Something like this is probably what I’ll end up bringing…:

You may wonder the reason why I’m only bringing hand luggage. Well, I do have the allowance of two bags of 23 kg each that I can check it, but as we (my bf mom and I) are bringing so much interior and decorating stuff  – those bags are full!!

Well, we’ll see maybe I’ll sneak in a couple of “mush have” products in one of those bags, oooooor I can just buy everything new at the tax free!

Hope you’re having an awesome Friday!

    Remember that you can’t bring more than ten containers with fluid in them and that they can’t contain more than 100 ml or whatever it is AND that they have to fit into that small stupid plastic bag!
    I know you’re probably used to it from travelling so much, but those bottles look kinda big! but i guess you can put it with the interior stuff?

    and i was wondering, what is the interior stuff for?

    have a nice trip, im jealous of it, it sounds amazing!!

      Thank you for the tips, but don’t worry, all the bottle are 30-50 ml or samples so they should easily fit in a plastic bag! ;)

      Hehe the interior stuff is for our apartment in Ipanema, they don’t really have anything similar to Ikea or Maison du Monde etc in Brazil and everything is overprized, thats why we bring a lot from Europe.

    Så kjedelig at du bare kan pakke håndbaggasje! Men har troen på at du er flink til å velge ut “the essentials” ;)
    God tur!
