"In Oxford we have a pigeonhole system where you can send post from one college to another for free. I send people in other colleges I don't know random items, anonymously. Like postcards with uplifting messages on them! I think it's a bit weird, but I like to think I'm brightening someone's day."
My winner is The Silent One. Your confession was long over due since it seems that this sin of yours has been with you since you were a wee little blighter. But what really grabbed me was your style! I like your flow and the way you told the tale;
"Once Upon A Time...There was a small, quiet girl who lived in her small, quiet world.One day, this small, quiet girl was in her grade school class where there was a loud little girl who went on and on and on and on and on about her SHINY, NEW, COLORFUL pen. She was very proud of this wonderful new contraption and wanted all of the little boys and girls to know how much she loved this pen! Well,Morning had passed..........Lunch and playtime had passed..........then the school day had finally come to an end when the loud little girl cried out, "I can't find my SHINY, NEW, COLORFUL pen!!!" The loud little girl sadly went home in tears.Once Upon A Time...There was a small, quiet girl who lived in her small, quiet world and played with her SHINY, NEW, COLORFUL pen.....And I still feel guilty about that to this day."

It turns out that it is part of a rather clever and creative advertising stunt from the people at Absolut Vodka. The brilliance of drawing on street art, mystery and story telling into one magic ad campaign definately caught my attention....I felt the burning need to find out more!
"The 30 minute film, honours the creative history of ABSOLUT, while embarking on a new and innovative alliance with one of today’s most original filmmakers. The result is a film which combines Jonze’s unique style with the ABSOLUT vision of making ordinary life more interesting"
Well since I have been following this story, admittedly inadvertently to begin with, I plan to see it out to the very end. I have registered myself for tickets to see this short film in a less ordinary location in London. A car park to be exact! Let's hope I get some tickets (I have me fingers and pliers crossed)!! Of course I will take my camera and update you on my adventure.....
I am always on the hunt for a life less ordinary.
DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENTLY LEADS TO SOMETHING EXCEPTIONAL.
An Absolut truth.
Does your foundation/bb cream have SPF?
My choice is Lioele Water Drop BB with SPF 27. Certainly not the highest SPF out there but this stuff is light as a feather on the skin and nicely moisturising.
I think this is where alot of us forget about SPF. I am rather fond of the Clinique Long Last Glosswear with SPF 15. It also comes in a selection of brilliant shades for sunshine posing..haha
How do you wash your face on the plane? I refuse to use that grubby tiny little hardly a sink thing! So I use Simple Facial Wipes because they are as gentle as it gets and alcohol free.
Up in the air with dry eyes? My eye drips of choice are Santen FX drops. Not for the faint hearted. This is strong stuff! Though it does pack a mega ZING, it does leave my blinkers super fresh and alert and clean feeling.
Nobody wants to see your cracked lips! Cabin air really gets to my lips! Dior's Lip Glow is just the right texture for me and it gives a little KAPOW of colour to prevent me from looking like a corpse.
I pack my sun protection in my hand luggage. So when I reach my destination, I can reach for my SPF. I use SOFINA because it is light, easily absorbed and smells clean. These sun milks come in 2 different finishes, Fresh or Moist. These are my HG sun care items. I use the SPF50 for my face, neck and chest and the SPF24 for my legs!
Little pots! Since all airlines have got strict on what you are allowed to take on board, I have been making purchases a plenty at Muji. And of course you all know me, I can't leave something "naked" I have to decorate it!
The above pots are filled with a gel moisturiser and powder facial cleanser. I recommend Laneige, as it is so light yet decent with moisturising capabilities and continual application does not result in volcano like breakouts! As for the powder cleanser, I use Fancl Light.
GO AWAY and let me RELAX!
I hate talking to strangers on planes! Once you start off friendly, they never shut up! So I use a mask of some kind as a polite eff off please!
Kao's Megurism Steam Eye Mask is my latest rave item.
The mask generates a comforting warmth through a gentle steam. No need to get the extinguisher out, it is very mild and doesn't send out smoke signals. I love love love these pads. They are soooo soothing. They come in 3 different "flavours", regular non scented, lavender and chamomile.
Here is what Kao says about it:
Product Features the thermo pad generates a moderate amount of steam at a temperature of approximately 40 degrees Celsius to steadily and deeply warm the eyes and ease tension in surrounding muscles. Its comforting warmth wraps around the eyes and surrounding area for 5 to 10 minutes following application, releasing the user from tension built-up throughout the day.
Sound good? Take note! I will be giving away a sample pack of these very soon.
Weary legs. I am a L'occitane fan! Yeah I said it out aloud! They do such interesting things to try out. I think this is rather rare for a Western Brand. Nil offence, it's just that I have come to think of out-of-the-box ideas in beauty usually come from the far east.
Anyway I heartily recommend this. Part of long haul travel for me means lots of strain on the legs. L'occitane's Revitalising Leg Gel really does boost my circulation before and during long flights.
Aching Leg Relief. My recent trip to Cape Town for a conference meant that I spent hours on my feet, standing around talking to people. By the end of the day my legs were killing me. It was time for the big gun to be brought out.............this spray is the ultimate in pain/strain/fatigue relief.
I spray this on at the end of the day and it works really fast. It goes on really cool with a medicinal, camphor, menthol scent and within minutes, that heavy feeling is alleviated.
So there you have it....a loooooooong yarn about things you don't need but are truly good to have.
Have you got any recommendations to add to the list? Come on! Step up with your thoughts and experiences....you know I LOVE hearing from you!
