Mommy SOS kit

Beauty crises are a part of life for every woman, so stash your beauty essentials in a mommy SOS kit.

Beauty crises are a part of life for every woman. The call to meet your husband for an unexpected business dinner. Post-lunch garlic/curry breath. Broccoli in the teeth. A two-days-early period. Suddenly remembering (just after working out) a meeting at school with the PTA president. Stinky armpits before a meeting. Detecting an errant black hair shooting out of a facial mole while you are waiting in the carpool pickup line.

Since popping home to floss, deodorize, flatten frizzy hair or perk up your face and hair is not an option, it is key to stash your beauty essentials in a mommy SOS kit. The kit is actually a small zippered pouch containing a melange of minis: dental floss, toothpaste, deodorant, fragrance, tweezers, hair products, pony tail holder, lip gloss, concealer, eye liner, mascara, bronzer, blush and a tampon.

I always keep an extra pair of hoop earrings and a long necklace in mine in case an extra dose of glamour is in order. A snack is also a smart idea.
