NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Set

Monday, November 24, 2014

Travel sized lip pencils from the NARS Digital World Set

NARS, what's not to love? You get that I'm stingy and want to try out five colours for the price of two full sized lip pencils. My only issue is the need for a sharpener. Imagine a world where NARS made these incredible lip pencils but with a windy up feature as seen in Clinque Chubby Sticks. 

The Digital World Set includes: Decanso (peachy pink), Iberico (bright orange) Torres del Paine (peach orange), Yu (shocking pink) and Cruella (dark red with blue undertones).

Which of the holiday offerings has caught your eye? 

The Places You'll Go

Travel rut. You could say I'm currently experiencing exactly just that with my last international travel dating back to 2011. That's when the first picture above was taken. I was in Paris during fashion week and my eyes still light up if you ever talk to me about it. While that was a trip I'll never forget (evidence here and here), I'm truly feeling this rut quite badly. My passport is so expired it's not even valid ID anymore. 

I thought it was time to put pen to paper and start a visual list of all the countries I need to visit. I also rounded up a list of tips and inspiration sources if you find yourself in the same situation. 

Start a travel inspiration folder. 

This one should be the easiest, especially for image hoarders. My go to websites for this are: 

Get on Pinterest. 

It's no secret that Pinterest is addictive but it's the fastest way to curate all your dream destinations in one place. Here's a good example from Elle of Wonderfelle. While I'm at it, here's a quick plug to my Pinterest which you can follow here

Do your research!

I'm definitely the kind of person who needs to see the facts and figures, otherwise it's all just pretty pictures living inside a screen. I love websites like Webjet (Australian website here) for the convenience of comparing prices for flights, hotels and even insurance. There's also Zuji which has a 'Specials' section. 

Look into the serious stuff like visas and travel warnings.

The nana in me always puts safety first above everything so I suggest looking up the travel warnings for your destinations before even going cray cray on Pinterest. If you're flying from New Zealand, you might want to check the government website called Safe Travel
