What's Inside My Travel Bag - Lembang edition8:45:00 PM
Back in early January I had a mini getaway to Lembang with my family. It was a fun short trip and the place was beautiful and super cold especially at night. We stayed at Lembah Bougenville Resort and it was quite a hidden gem. We must take a long uphill mountain side road, and then through the dense natural forest and quaint little villages. Once we get to the location of the resort the view is just beautiful. We can see two mountains on either side of our bungalow and the resort was also very vast with lots of facilities (excluding swimming pool). Maybe they think: "Who would want to swim in the super cold weather anyway?" ;p
So here's what I packed inside my travel bag for the mini getaway. Since I can't stand cold weather so I bring warm clothes such as jacket, long sleeve blouses, pants and also tanktops for layering.
For traveling, I always bring an "outfit" which I planned carefully (from making look books) instead of just throwing pieces of clothing that I think would suit each other. So I know what to wear for day one, and then which outfit to wear for day 2, and so on..
Here I brought along my plaid Burberry shirt which has long sleeve, my Nike sweatshirt paired with the H&M tank top for layering inside (because at night it got sooo chilly, brrrr...), and also my long-sleeved Victoria's Secret top with a black tanktop underneath for extra warmth.
For pants I only bring with me my trusted jegging which is warm enough especially paired with the leopard print socks for night sleep, and also my Forever 21 Jeans. When traveling my choice of bag is always the Le Sport Sac tokidoki bag that has many zippers and compartments in it. It's also very versatile and has two kind of straps, and it fits a lot of things :)
Now, on to the Beauty part. As usual, I always carry two cosmetic bags with me when I travel. One is for my skincare & bodycare, and another one is reserved for my makeup essentials.
For skincare & bodycare products, I carry them in this big blue cosmetic bag that I got from the Ponds event a while ago. It's quite huge so I can stuffed many products in there including my big bottle of Bioderma H20 ;)
One of the perks of subscribing to beauty boxes is that you usually end up with travel size products, and for me the mini size products always come in handy for traveling. I like to open my travel-size stash box and pick up which of the mini items there that I want to carry with me for my traveling. Yes, I have my own stash of travel-size products, LOL.
I love to change up products, especially for my travel essentials, because I want to make sure that all of those products are in use and not left behind. So here's what I choose to bring along with me this time:
For face/makeup cleansing I bring along my trusted Bioderma H20 Micellar Water because I don't wanna be bothered with layered cleansing routines when I'm on holiday (and I dont wear much makeup on holiday anyway). I also bring along Orlane Cleansing Serum for Eyes for removing eyeliner and mascara. For morning shower face wash I bring Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel (which my hubby mistaken it and used it as body wash >_<), and for night time face wash I use Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash.
For moisturizer I bring my Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream and then continue with Clarins Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 for maximum sun protection. Last thing I put on the bag is the Unicharm Pure Style pantyliners in Ylang Ylang fragrance.
The bag is big enough to also stuffed my bath/bodycare products. So for shower and body lotion I bring along my favorite Juicy Couture set which include a Frothy Shower Gel, a perfumed body lotion, and the Juicy Couture perfume itself in a dainty little bottle. I love the scent of this Juicy Couture perfume, so layering the scent would surely escalate the fragrance throw. This Juicy Couture perfume is the only fragrance I wore during the mini getaway.
I also bring another bottle of shower gel for my hubby because the Juicy Couture frothy shower gel would smell too girly for him (LOL), that's why I also brought along the Bath & Body Works shower gel in Sea Island Cotton (which scent I despise, but hubby loves it). For body sun protection I bring along the Supergoop Everyday Lotion with SPF30 which is a great sunscreen for the body. Lastly, to avoid dry hands I bring along my L'Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream which I'm also trying to finish.
Now on to the Makeup bag, I picked my recently purchased vintage-style cosmetic pouch which has a medium size. I stuffed a lot of my essentials in there, although I tried to limit it so that I won't bring unnecessary items with me like I always do ;p
Below are the only makeup items that I decided to bring along. As I mentioned previously, I don't wear lots of makeup during holiday, maybe only basic makeup such as bb cream / powder, eyeliner, mascara and colored lipbalm. The lipstick and blush on (and sometimes neutral eyeshadow) are reserved for during the travel time to-and-from the resort.
