She won’t mind, I know she won’t.
The best part of travelling with a girlfriend is the talk time.
Having an extended length of time with none of the normal day-to-day responsibilities is the greatest luxury of all. It is the kind of time that doesn’t come around that often but when it does it means everything and more.
We travelled together for ten days and I don’t think we stopped talking other than to sleep. We talked the big, the small and all the in-between. Living thousands of miles and many years apart means nothing in the grand scheme of things; when you are friends, you are friends. Distance means nothing and time together is a precious commodity.
And yes, there were plenty of nights when the “pyjama party” was the evening of choice.
She went home with my favourite Giorgio Armani CC Cream and new Tom Ford lipstick in Ruby Rush and I went home with her Stila Lush Lips Primer and Stay All Day Liquid lipstick.
This Stila Primer for the lips is superb. It has a creamy finish, dries matte and keeps the lipstick in place all day. We gave it all we had, walking all day and barely stopping for a touch up. I liked it on its own too; it made the lips look smooth and maybe even a bit plumper. Who knows, all I can tell you is I am a convert. Plus it takes seconds to apply so a non-taker-of-precious- time. Very important.
I particularly liked it with the stay all day liquid lipstick in Caramello; a beautiful nude pink that I am so partial to. The primer worked equally well with my reds as well.
Something we decided; we must and we will meet each year and spend time some “talking” time together. xv
