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