Hello Friday!  Hello February 2013!  And hello to all my lovely readers – if you are still there 😛  As you all know, I went on an extended beauty blog break due to health issues and I just want to let you all know that I am definitely in a better place than I was a few weeks ago.  Some days are harder than others but I am trying not to dwell on the past.  Thanks for showering me with all the lovely messages – I know who my real readers / blog friends / online friends are – see the list of names in my previous post.  Anyway, do you want to know what I got up to during my beauty blog break?  Yes, I went to Hong Kong but I did a lot of other things too!  If you don’t want to know, click away 😛 but if you do, here are 30 things that happened during my beauty blog break :-

virgin atlantic, virgin atlantic airways, virgin aeroplane

On the way to Hong Kong with my Mum and Sister

01.  My Sister and I went nuts at the beauty counters at the Duty Free bit in Sydney airport.

02.  Basically, we slathered on every expensive lotion and potion we could find!  The Sales Assistants at Duty Free are so not-in-your-face and we could browse freely at La Mer, Chanel, La Prairie, etc.

03.  I bought 2 YSL coral cream blushes – one for me, one for my Sis.

04.  We vowed  never to fly Virgin Atlantic again.

05.  The Virgin Atlantic flight attendants for our SYD-HK flight were DAMN RUDE and one of them rolled her eyes at my Sis when she asked for another packet of pretzels.

06.  The second packets of pretzels were for me because I was DAMN HUNGRY and there were only 5 mini pretzels in the packet anyway!

07.  I had sticky feet during the flight because another flight attendant dropped a glass of sticky shizz all over my fake Croc thongs (yes, I travel in style huh?)

08.  I can handle bitchy flight attendants but I cannot handle sitting in a 9 hour flight with a TV screen which was situated not in front of me…but diagonal to me!!!  WTF?  We were a row of 3 sitting behind a row of 4, hence awkward TV screen placement!

09.  And to top it off, the kid sitting behind me repeatedly kicked my seat and slammed his food tray back and forth.  I swear it was worse than turbulence itself!

10.  I gave the kid’s father the evil eye but he ignored me just like he ignored his kid.  I should have grown some balls and said something.    Alas, no balls grew.  Anyone got a Guide To Growing Balls to lend me?
