The travel season is upon us. We all want to look great for the family (especially if you have those in-laws, let us be honest.) But I personally don’t want to see my checked baggage rummaged through or thrown carelessly about, or worse-LOST. So I carry on my baggage whenever I possibly can. I actually had an airline employee take my carry on luggage when they ran out of room for carry-ons in the overhead compartments. I begged him no, and explained to him I had lost luggage before. He promised it would make it. It did not. I froze in Montana in December for two days until it was returned.
But the 3 ounce clear Ziploc regulations make everything so hard! So we break down out 3 favorite travel size products to make your holidays a bit easier.
p.s- During your many family and social gatherings, keep a level head with those that rub you the wrong way. I accomplish this with Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
Prom season is such an exciting time. Dress shopping, shoes, jewelry, hot dates. Please- do not forget the hair!
I am seeing a disturbing trend in prom seasons lately… Flat regular hair! Why? Why spend so much money on your dress and accessories and then brush your hair as if you are off to home economics class on any given Thursday? I don’t understand!
You, as a young woman, have a responsibility to look your very best on this important night. You have boy’s heads to turn. You have classmates to make jealous. You have a reputation to establish, or uphold! Now is not the time for humble beauty and humility. Now is the time TO SLAY!!! Trust me, those head cheerleaders are covering all the bases, and so should you my lovelies. Natural beauty? Great. Leave it for P.E. class. This is PROM! Class, style, razzmatazz and great hair will win you the most attention every time.
Good Luck and have fun,
p.s- don’t wear a strapless dress if you think you will be tugging on it all night. It’s not worth it.
Today we are veering away from the usual hair topics to discuss something extremely important. Cherry Coke. Not that roughness in the can- homemade.
Hubs and I were at Peggy Sue’s malt shop in Downtown San Jose, and they had the best Cherry Coke I have ever tasted. I swooned over it to the manager and he gave me the secret- maraschino cherry syrup! Forehead slap, of course!!
First in is the ice. Second, spoon in some syrup and a few cherries direct from the jar. Then add the Coke. Finish with a straw. The straw is an important factor in this scenario. It allows you to sip up both juice and soda at the same time. Voila! Cherry Coke at its finest! And for all you retro kids out there, that is indeed a paper straw.
You are welcome.
p.s- changing your baby somewhere other than your own home? Travel with puppy training pads. They are perfect to lay your baby on while changing a diaper, and they are disposable.
