Before I go off on one about my packing nightmare I just wanted to say the picture has absolutely no relevence. I had to pick one from the photo library and nothing fit so I just chose a random trojan horse :)
Whoever decided that the check-in baggage limit for passengers flying around the world should be one 23Kg bag per person only should be fired. I have had three attempts so far at packing my bag and my stuff is not getting any smaller. I am devestated that I can't get more than 5 pairs of shoes in my bag unless I give a bit on my already very modest selection of clothes.
A two month trip is seriously not easy to pack for, I've had to give up most of my best going out clothes to make room for stupid things like an umbrella. I'm sure Britney doesn't have this kind of trouble and I bet she doesnt have to ration her lipgloss either.
Actually, I think it's mostly my fault for picking a suitcase which is meant for snowboarding gear rather than just normal stuff, yet another example of something being bought because it looks pretty but turns out to be below standard.
Oh well, the important thing is that all of my Benefit make-up is packed away. I might run out of socks but at least my eye alshes will be fabulous. Hmm, note to brian, lesson learned. Ish.
