Hong Kong Trip/ My travel essentials

Hey Everyone, this is my last post before i head off to Hong Kong in two days! I'll also be going to Taiwan and Macaw.  I'm the type of person who ALWAYS ALWAYS over pack! My boyfriend always scold me. He says, "You're going to Hong Kong, what is there to pack? Just buy everything there!"
But then i'm the worrywart who thinks "what if i can't find anything i like, what if...what if....what if..."

Even on an everyday basis, i always carry too much stuff in my purse, but then again, if anyone needs anything, i'll probably have it =)

I already tried to limit myself this time, and i think i did a good job. If it ends up that i packed too much and i don't have enough room to bring things back, i can always buy another suitcase there hahaha!

So aside from the clothes and all the boring stuff, here are the essentials that i brought with me.

Decided to bring my old TNA bag because it's medium sized and has a zipper, and if i ever break it or loose it, i won't be too heart broken.

Estee Lauder power compact, anti bacterial hand cream, and travel comb
Gravol (i always get car sick, but just in case i get air sick?), and a bottle of advils for evil cramps.
Hello kitty bandages and tissues
Notebook, spare mint, oil blotter papers, and a calculator (because my math is slow)

I bought a bunch of travel bottles to put my liquids in so then i don't have to carry the big bottles. Saves a lot of space and weight.

three different types of moisturizers (love labels!)

I only brought two BB creams with me (i hope it's enough!)
Two paper masks for the plane ride

Travel size shampoo and conditioner, body lotion, acne spot treatment, tea tree oil, toothpaste, emjoi epilator and my clarisonic

As for makeup, i brought very little, because i assume that i won't be wearing a whole lot because the weather will be hot and sticky.

Mary Kay lip balm, Lorac lipstick, mabelline lipstick, viva la juicy rollerball
Two faced palette, wet n wild palette, BB creams

NYX liquid eyeliner, NYX eyebrow pencil, NYX jumbo pencil, and laura mercier mascara


These are my last purchases from Toronto before i leave...

Super cute antibac hand soap from bath and body! It was on sale for $5!!!

faux fur collar thing from H&M. I wanted this so bad from last year but it was sold out, so happy it was back this year! The boyfriend bought this for me <3

I most likely will not have internet access while i'm there unless i am in a wifi area, so i wouldn't be able top blog =(

I'll see you guys in 3 weeks!!!
