The one thing that got to me the most was how some of the hotel staff asked if I had any used makeup that I might want to part with because they couldn't afford any them self. I mean, I write a beauty blog, spend a small fortune on "stuff" I don't really need, and I've never even imagined it possible that someone would love my "left-over" makeup. I honestly cant imagine what it would be like to ask somebody for used makeup. I have to say, my makeup bag came back empty. I'm just so happy that I had taken a bunch of the new makeup I had bought before I went so that they were given some half decent things.
I managed to clean out my closet at home before I went and I probably ended up giving away half of the clothes in my suitcase while I was there, because really... I have MORE than enough clothes and it gives me so much joy that I can share what I have with others. (In some ways it was selfish as well, but only because I was hoping it would make my suitcase be UNDER-weight on my trip back.... no such luck by the way!) Is there anything in particular that you take to give-away on any of the vacations you take? I love getting new ideas!
Anyways, I had a lovely time and I thought I'd share some of the highlights with you! Seeing as how pictures are worth a thousand words, we'll start there!
