Thanks to my father, every time I go away on holidays I am convinced that the house is going to burn down and we'll lose everything. Thankfully this has never happened, however it got me thinking about what I'd buy if I had to start all over again.
For body products I'd get everything from Haus of Gloi and Soap and Glory.
I'd buy Crazy Rumors and By Terry lip balms.
I'd use Original and Mineral hair care.
The perfumes I'd buy are Lancome Miracle, Philosophy Falling In Love, Chanel Chance, Chanel Allure Sensual, Clean, Michael by Michael Kors, Issey Miyake, Narcisco Rodriguez and MOR Marshmallow.
I'd get Bonne Bell and Lancome Juicy Tubes lip glosses.
Lipsticks would be Chantecaille Lip Chics and Chanel Rouge Coco Shines.
For make-up I'm not loyal to one particular brand so would buy things from a few different brands. I'd buy Laura Mercier Caviar Stick eyeliner, Bobbi Brown Corrector and eye shadows, most of the Models Prefer range and Physician's Formula Happy Booster powders.
Skincare I'd get from Audra James. She custom makes everything so I'd get exactly what I needed.
There are times I think it'd be nice to have a clean start with my make-up and skin care. I'd have a very small, pared down stash. I wonder if it'd get out of control again, I don't think it would as I would be a lot more fussy about what I bought and I'd try to get samples before purchasing new products.
If you are wondering why my father made me think our house is going to burn down, read on.
I grew up living in a large wooden house, out of town, on a one acre bush block. There were a lot of trees and fire fodder around and if something had sparked the whole house would have gone up in flames as it was made entirely of wood. We used to go on holidays in summer, so the house burning down was a realistic prospect. Thankfully it never happened.
If you had to start again what would you buy? Am I the only one who thinks about what they'd buy if they had to start again?
