Which coastal scents palette should I get.

I really love the 88warm palette and would like to get another one with it. I think the metal mania is similar and I wouldn't wear most of the colors in the original and shimmer.Which other one do you recommend?

Update instead of getting 2 88 color palettes with the size of a dime shadows,I'm getting both Urban Decay Naked palettes with 12 full size color each.

What's in my Hawaii carry on bag?

Hey girls,
This is all the fun stuff  I'm bringing on my carry on for the LONG! trip to Hawaii tomorrow. I'm so excited tot go but the only bad parts are we have to get up at 3:30 am because the car is getting us at 4:15 !, I have to sit on a plane and share a room with my annoying brothers. I took a lot of pics for this post so hopefully it turns out okay.
My pattern is not available anymore :(

One of my tricks is to clean out my travel makeup brush case with makeup remover to clean it before putting the brushes in it. I use CVS oil-free makeup remover wipes to do this. Make sure you dry it off. I had to put two brushes in one spot because there are 6 brushes and 5 spots!

School Break!

Today was my last day of school until next year! I should be posting a lot over the next 2 weeks. I'm leaving for Hawaii on the 21 and coming back on the 30. I'm excited to go because it is freezing where I live now. What are you doing over Winter Break?
