Hey! I’m back from our cruise to the Mediterranean.🙂 It was a fantastic trip! But I’ll start out with the not so good: our flight home from Venice was delayed by over 5 hours because of a careless remark by a fellow passenger. What was an otherwise seamless transport from sea to air was marred by what the captain of the flight called “an asinine comment”. Apparently during the check-in process, someone on our flight made a comment about airport security – we never found out who it was or what the person said or if the person was detained afterward. We were kept in the dark about the situation until after we reboarded the plane. We had all originally boarded the flight on time but the plane just sat on the tarmac for over an hour until we we told that due to a “technical issue”, we had to to take all of our stuff and deplane. Then we had to go through security screening again – we thought it was a mechanical issue with the plane so we all joked that we were going through screening again to provide us with “something to do” while they fixed the plane. They had one screening station for the entire flight!😡 The Italian police and fire department were called and the cargo hold thoroughly checked. Our flight was scheduled to depart at 11:30am but we did not leave until close to 5pm. It wasn’t the worst thing by any means for us, we just got home later than we had anticipated. But for many fellow passengers who had connecting flights, they missed their flights and were put on the next available flight – some were rebooked for flights departing 2 days later!😮 So, please please even if you think it’s a funny joke, don’t utter any comments about airport security while in the airport / airplane. They take this stuff seriously!🙄 I said to the SO, “Imagine if this had happened when we were flying out to Venice and missed the cruise ship?” Ugh!
Now, with that out of the way, onward to the good stuff!😛
I will truly be unplugged so I won’t be updating the blog or posting social media for the duration of my trip. But I’ll be sure to share my experiences and photos once I’m back at the end of the month.
I’m going on a Mediterranean cruise coming up this week and we’ll be gone for 10 days.😀 I want to pack super light for this trip since it’ll be fairly casual, and since we’re going to warm places, I don’t anticipate wanting to wear too much makeup.
And I’ve just started the Project Pan so technically I’m supposed to be focused on using those products, so I’ve tried to incorporate a few items on this trip. I’ll be listing skincare here too.
I’d never heard of Jolse until I started blogging. Then I came across the amazing Fifty Shades of Snail blog, which showcases Asian skincare. She often talks about Jolse.com and then I started noticing other blogs mentioning the site so I decided to order a few things to test it out.
Jolse is a Korean beauty site that offers free shipping and credits for every order. I got $3 credit just for signing up, which I was able to apply toward my first order. There are often sales and special kit deals featured on the site.
I don’t often buy nail polishes that come packaged with a cardboard backing – I think these were repackaged specifically for Dollarama – as you can see, this cost $1.50. The bottle contains 12.3ml of polish.
Happy Labour Day! Hope you’re enjoying the long weekend! And welcome to another collab with the Canuck gang! We are once again, trying to chip away at some beauty products in our stash. This time we are choosing 12 items to try to pan / empty. The length of this project will be for 3 months, all the way until December!🙂
Today we’ll be introducing you to the items we selected for this project.
