In this VS Pink Cosmetic Bag I threw in:
2 dry shampoos: cause there WILL be days I need them
1 Bottle Pamprin: This stuff works...and FAST...I'm not
gonna mess with cramps.
2 small bottles of a mix of advil & tylenol: To hold me over until
i can get to the Pharmacy.
1 mini First Aid kit: hey... don't laugh...this came in very
hand during my semesters.
I also opted to take several bottles of nail polish in colors I knew I would wear.
I chose mini's so that I wouldn't waste as much space.
Nail tools such as a buffer, nail files (Christmas!), cuticle gel and a hand
moisturizer. Like I've mentioned before...I love doing my nails...so this is a lil taste of home.
My other bag that contains skin, body, and hair care will be in my carry on so that I don't have to worry about little exploding surprises. I am taking a lot of mini's because I will be purchasing large bottles for the stay...these just tie me over and help for weekend trips to visit family.
I hope this helped you guys out when it came to planning out what to pack...the biggest thing I'd like to underscore is that each country has their own brands, so if you forget something or run out during your stay...try something new! (unless you have severe reactions etc...then pack away!)
