Airport shopping

...and I'm back! In the blogging world that is. The end of March was quite busy for me in all aspects - work and life so I did not get to post what I'd planned to. The good part is, I just left on my vacation so hopefully I'll have some time to post while visiting friends and family.

In the meantime, here are some interesting things I spotted in the airport/plane while waiting for my flights (all pics are clickable):

A crystal skull bottle!


I was sooooo tempted to pick it up and launch into a Hamlet inspired soliloquy...


Alas, poor Yorick...

However the bottle design is inspired by the 13 crystal skulls:



Made by Crystal Head Vodka.

I also spotted some Hello Kitty weirdness...HK maple syrup! Though the label and bottle design could have been much improved. All they did was slap her likeness on an ugly label.




And Hello Kitty maple cookies:



Absolut Vodka in a special limited edition bottle, most likely for the Vancouver 2010 Games:




There were also some things I was tempted by at duty free...





Dior Travel Exclusives:





Guerlain Travel Exclusives:




What do you think? Which would you pick, if any? I'm really tempted to get the set of 3 Meteorites on my way back...

If you don't have the meteorites, get the trio. They are tiny but do the job. That Dior eye palette really caught my eye though! Looks pretty!

The Dior Eye palette looks super pretty, and I'm intrigued by the Meteorites Couture... the packaging just looks so luxe! I need to go somewhere outside of Canada this year, clearly.

Maybe the Cannage Color eye palette, or the Travel Studio palette (both by Dior)...
But definitely the Meteorites on the last pic! That's such an awesome pack!^^

Wow, I would've gotten the Dior tag and whitening serum, and maybe the set of 3 guerlain meteorites. I love duty free, but its so bad for my wallet. I always leave with a bunch of stuff that I love but don't really need, just because its so much cheaper to get at the airport...

the meteorites look really cute!

Hello Kitty maple syrup looks funny :-/

That Guerlain travel exclusives is my choice if I picked one! Airport window shopping always helps to kill time for me ;) Have a wonderful, fun, and safe vacation!

Ahhhh it all looks so GOOD! The duty free browsing/shopping before boarding the plane is just as awesome as getting to the destination for me. All part of the experience!

I probably missed the post but where are you heading for your holiday? HK?

Hope you have a relaxing and resting holiday!

the meteorites trio looks like a good purchase - even the small mythic pearls that i have seem to last forever! haha for some reason that crystal skull makes me think of yasumi - what a cool conversation piece that would be!

Lulu said...
