Two weeks in Romania: a photo diary

Where my Eyes Go | Windsor, Ontario Lifestyle Photographer | Timisoara, RomaniaI spent a stress-free two weeks in Romania a few months ago. It was spring and the summer flowers were just starting to bloom, the cuckoo birds were singing in the country side, the atmosphere was peaceful. I drank coffee in the garden and binge-read The Idiot most days.

Before leaving for Canada we spent two days in Timisoara wandering around the stone building streets, the air thick with humidity and pre-summer excitement. I ate too many sweets and acquired a deep distrust for pigeons. They’re sneaky!

Besides this I won’t go into too much detail; instead I’ll show you a quick snapshot of what my trip looked like!

A beauty trick for in-flight

A beauty trick for inflight | Where my Eyes goThe last last time I flew, I packed a small bag of toiletries with me. It was heavy, bulky, took up space in my backpack and really- if i’m flying for 8 hours why do I need to bring half my bathroom vanity with my in my carry-on? I vowed never to do that again. It was such a pain.

This this time flying, I decided to try and bring only one beauty-related product with me (not including lip balm) to use inflight, one that would moisturize and perk up my tired, dull, airplane skin*: Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. 

It’s a clear gel-cream face mask/night cream that smells like delicious apricots and really moisturizes skin. About half an hour into flying I slipped to the bathroom and applied it to my face and since it’s clear, no one knew I had anything on my face! I was having a facial in secret!  I had a small bottle left from Christmas and it was the perfect size to slip into the wristlet I keep in my backpack.

This little product is compact, doesn’t take up space and works wonderfully.A little goes a long way too so you have quite a bit left for a while. I will always bring this mini magic potion with me when I travel.

 

 

*I have normal/dry skin in general. If you have oily skin, this mask might be too moisturizing for you. But you never know!
