I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front over the last few days because I was in the process of packing and then travelling to Sri Lanka. I'm here because my grandma's condition recently deteriorated but now that I'm here it seems like she's a lot better.
She amazes me with her will to live. She's 95 years old and, even though she has withered away to nothing but skin and bones and spends her time living in the past, her personality still seeps through in little moments here and there. My great grandma apparently lived until she was 102 so, for my own selfish reasons, I hope she makes it that long even though I know she's had an amazing life.
I've only been in Sri Lanka for about 3 days and this is only the second time I've visited Sri Lanka as an adult (the last time was 10 years ago) but I am always surprised by how much I love this country. I've never really related to being Sri Lankan while living in Australia but the moment I'm here, it definitely feels like home.
This trip was very last minute so I didn't have enough time to set up any auto-posts or ask for posts from guest bloggers. This means that posting over the next 3 1/2 weeks that I'll be away may be quite infrequent but I'm going to make every effort post regularly.
The weather here is extremely hot and humid so I've had to give up on thoughts of any makeup for now. I also haven't brought a lot of eyeshadow's so I can't do any EOTD's. That being said, I haven't ventured out and explored the cosmetic options here so hopefully I can find some interesting products to show you.
I'll leave you for now with some pictures that I've taken from my trip so far. I've had to resize them and make them smaller as the file sizes are too big to upload otherwise.
