Off to Costa Rica!

Hi Bellas,

As you know, I will be in Costa Rica with my Get it Girls for the next 9 days. I'm so excited! I'm leaving Thursday at 7am!

A few things on our agenda:

-ziplining in the rainforest
-bathing in the hot springs fueled by the arenal volcano
-massage on Jaco Beach
-nature and animal reserve in Manuel Antonio
-canopy rainforest tour
-partying it up with the surfers and locals
-enjoying local Tico cuisine
-shopping in the Costa Rica marketplace

Thank you for all your suggestions on what to pack in terms of makeup...after reading your suggestions, I made a few adjustments and definitely sized down!

Take a look at all I'm bringing...
-MAC warm eyes eyeshadow palette (6 eyeshadows in one palette)
-smolder eye kohl with sharpenener (one black pencil eyeliner)
-nars multiple in palm beach (my bronzer, lipstick, eyeshadow, plus base all in one)
-smashbox sheer focus tinted moisturizer (as opposed to foundation, concealer and powder...thanks to Nicola for the recommendation!)
-chap stick (gotta have this-quench my parched beached out lips)
-nars lipgloss duo (two lipglosses in one)
-lash curler (no false lashes for me)
-mascara (MAC zoomlash)
-mini brush set (posh)

That's it! I think I have the basics down. I doubt if I'll use it all but I wanted to bring some girly items just in case the girls and I dress up to hit the town at night.

Here's a tip: when you pack anything that is powder and comes in a compact, put a bit of tissue or cotton balls in between the lid. This will prevent cracking. I also like to put my eyeshadow palette in one of those mini mailing envelopes that has bubble wrap inside. The rest of my products are cream so they should be okay.

I left my boyfriend instructions to upload a few videos in my absence. Up next are my Filipino Tag Game Video and Sephora/Ulta Haul video. Check out my youtube page while I'm gone for these videos to keep you entertained till I return. I'll miss you guys!

Ciao bellas!
