Donna’s on-the-go beauty kit

These are miniature versions of roller lash mascara & Nars orgasm blush

I need an easy way to keep myself fresh with small amounts of products that I need at any given time

Donna Spangler Actress & Producer

As an actress, producer & business woman, I am often on the go.  Weather it is on a formal trip or just a day trip, I need to have my beauty items handy to look & feel my best.  When we are on the road or going places where we may need to primp or completely do our makeup or freshen up, it is great to be prepared with a little beauty kit with all the essentials needed to look your best. The problem is taking everything you need in normal size containers you may need a suitcase. I have come up with a solution for this!
Donna’s on-the-go beauty kit made with samples

Beauty kit

ON THE GO BEAUTY KIT

In today’s world, we want to look our best at all times with the least amount of effort. I have come up with essentials every girl should have on hand, so you will be able to look fresh whether you are on the go, staying overnight with your boyfriend or simply need a touch up. Stash these necessities in your purse, and you will always be prepared.

I love samples. It gives me a chance to try high-end products of all sorts. Since you receive ample amounts in small packaging, you can make a full-on beauty kit to haul along in your purse. This can be very effective, especially when you may be out somewhere away from your packed arsenal of at home products.

First, you need a case for your makeshift beauty kit. It should be something you can fit easily into your purse. I used a handy foldable holder that I had received from a business flight, but you can also get a makeup holder at the 99 cents store or any drugstore. Just make sure it is somewhat flat and can be comfortably stowed in your purse.

Next comes the fun part. You need to get the ingredients to put into your kit. Take a trip to the department store and get samples of makeup base that fits your color, creams, perfumes, liner, mascara, gloss or whatever useful items you can find. I like the samples that are in flat packets because they are easy to fit into the kit. The other alternative is to have the salesperson make samples for you. High-end lines usually have tiny plastic containers the size of a quarter with tightly sealed lids that will work for your kit as well. Gather all the essentials possible in one visit.

You can also gather the beauty freebies attained through larger makeup purchases. These items tend to be smaller and can be easily stored in your kit. Figure out when makeup lines are offering free gifts, and keep track any ‘points’ you’ve accumulated (Sephora’s point system gives spectacular yet small gifts). Sephora also sells small beauty items as you are standing in line which are great for your beauty kit as there is everything from small hairspray and mascara to pint size foundation.

Add a sample perfume of your choice. I recommend a black or brown eye pencil, earth tone shadow, sample mascara (I like ARMANI – and they are small!). If desired, throw in a couple of packages of Advil for those emergency days. Remember one feminine product (tampon), and put in a flat comb and hair band so that you can tie back your hair when you wash your face. A few Q tips and cotton balls are a must – store them in a tiny sealable baggy.

Pick up some shine eraser sheets (Elf Brand makes a great one). Get a pocket-sized toothpaste and
toothbrush. I have

Dental Floss

gotten these items in hotels as well as in airline kits, or you may already have a few saved. Also add a small dental floss or put two or three dental claws into the kit.

You can also add any samples or small packed products that you think you may need. Go to the section in the drug store where they have the samples. Other items to consider are razors, baby wipe samples, mouthwash, face wash, etc

I also like collecting hotel items because they can be used in your kit. When it is put together, it should supply you with what you need for one day or night out. It is great if you are spending the night at a friend’s house and want to appear fresh without bringing a suitcase.

You can keep your kit in your purse or car so you will be prepared to look, smell and feel your best at all times. This inexpensive condensed beauty kit is incredibly handy, and you will be glad you took the time to have it constantly within your reach. Knowing you are prepared to wow in any situation will give you a priceless piece of mind.


ON-THE-GO BEAUTY KIT

6 Q tips, 2 cotton balls, samples of eye makeup remover or cream to remove makeup, and tissues (there is nothing worse than running eyes at the end of a night. These essentials can fix this pesky problem)

Put the cotton balls, Q tips and tissues into a small sealable plastic baggie

One black liner to re-apply for later

One black or brown mascara

Brown or earth toned eye shadow

Blush in your favorite color (I like NARS orgasm), brush for application

Your favorite color lip liner

Lighter lip gloss to go over liner

Add a few samples of foundation in your color and bolting powder paper

Get some perfume samples perfect for your kit

Small tube toothpaste, toothbrush, floss and gargle (Remember, these should all be sample sizes)

1 feminine product, small comb, ponytail holder and package of Advil

With this kit, you will be ready for your on-the-go life and always look your best!

There are also mini flat irons & curling that are as tiny as a few inches long.

Coobie Bras: The New Sexy

When you think about it, your bras are some of the most worn items in your wardrobe. If you’re going to spend that much time wearing anything, it darned well better be comfortable! That’s part of the beauty of the Coobie Seamless Bra – a bra so insanely comfy you’ll never want to take it off.

What makes the Coobie the coziest bra you’ve ever worn? For one it doesn’t have those annoying, uncomfortable underwires. It doesn’t have padding that ripples over time either. Hard to close hooks and clasps, you won’t find them here. Coobie bras do have an ultra-soft, dreamy blend of nylon and spandex to support and hug your curves in stretchy, seamless comfort.

Hard to imagine something this comfy can be sexy, but it is! Coobie bras come in oodles of gorgeous colors and patterns, in lace too, to suit your mood and your wardrobe. Whether you’re headed for a night on the town or off to work or the gym, Coobie has the perfect bra for the occasion. Because it doesn’t have seams or hooks, the Coobie sports a smooth, bump-free profile under even the thinnest tee. Its special design with ribbing and ruching makes for a knockout shapely silhouette!

  • Scoop neck: Say goodbye to the hassle of finding the right size. Coobie’s special stretchy fabric blend means one size fits nearly everybody. It comes in a full size too. Available in neutrals and lots of fun colors. Straps are adjustable & removable. Comes with removable, reversible padding.
  • V-neck with Lace: Great under dresses, low cut sweaters and more. This versatile style comes in an array of fun colors with just a touch of lace.
  • Lace Bralette: Soft, stretchy lace creates a feminine, sexy look for everyday wear. Softly lined cups provide coverage without bulk. Can be converted to a racerback style. Comes in S, M, L.

About Coobie:

Coobie products are built on the premise that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. The blockbuster success of its seamless bras created a demand for more Coobie products including camisoles, leggings, underwear and more. Coobie brings comfort, functionality, and style to women across the country.

Preventing Fraud After Natural Disasters

By: Justin Lavelle, BeenVerified.com 

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, two things are certain: 

1. Texans and Floridians will rebuild and repair. 

2. Scammers will be lurking, ready to take advantage of victims, their circumstances and the people lending a hand to help. 

About the fraud schemes that are bound to arise, Frank Scafidi, spokesman for the nonprofit National Insurance Crime Bureau, said “We’ve seen it after every significant disaster, and we don’t expect anything different once the Harvey-induced floods recede.” 

Preventing natural disaster relief scams is possible. But it takes informed citizens doing their research.

Here are some ways both victims and supporters can stay protected from these fraudsters: 

How Victims Can Avoid Fraud 

Use Trusted, Local Contractors 

 Without a doubt, there will be scammers posing as contractors after a natural disaster. You want to make sure you do research to ensure you aren’t going to be taken advantage of. 

Here are a few tips to follow: 

• Don’t hire anyone who rushes or pressures you to sign a repair contract. 

• Don’t pay in cash. A scammer can take the money and never be heard from again. 

• Never hire a contractor on the spot. Read reviews and make sure they do quality work before making any deals. 

• Confirm that the contractor’s business is legal, licensed and registered. Request to see a business license and proof of insurance. 

• Pay in installments and wait for the repairs to be completed to make the last payment. 

• Always get everything in writing. A legal contract is your safety net, should any issues arise. 

Do A VIN Check Before Buying A Car 

After Hurricane Katrina, fraudsters were fixing up cars damaged by the flooding and selling them as used cars – leaving their victims with a lemon of a car. 

Conducting a vehicle inspection number check will tell you if the vehicle had previous repairs or damage. 

How Supporters Can Avoid Fraud 

Spot Fake Charities

Don’t let scammers take advantage of your generosity. Doing your own research is imperative before making any donations. 

Conning charities and fraudulent fundraisers may do any of the following:

• Refuse to tell you the details; its mission, identity, cost or how your donation will be used. 

 • Ask for cash donations. 

• Ask you to wire money. 

• Thank you for a donation you didn’t make. 

• Try to get you to donate immediately, without giving you time to research. 

• Use a similar name as an established charity. 

• Refuse to give you proof that a donation is tax deductible. 

• Offer to provide an overnight shipping service to collect a donation (another way they try to get you to pay immediately). 

Beware Of Internet Charity Scams 

Before Hurricane Katrina even hit, scammers had registered dozens of websites with “Katrina” in the name to pose as charities. 

These scams circulate quickly on social media due to their sophistication, so watch out. Once someone makes the mistake of falling for a scam, the fraudsters will lure the victim’s social media friends in, knowing that people are more likely to trust what their friend likes. 

Here’s how to stay protected from online charity scams: 

• Be careful of which websites you give your email to. 

• Any organization asking you to send money overseas is a scam. 

• Do not open email attachments. Real emails from real charity organizations will not typically include attachments. Opening an attachment from an unsolicited email may lead to a computer virus. 

• Investigate the charity’s website. Legitimate charities’ web addresses typically end in .org – not .com. You can also rule out any website that asks for your personal information – these are scams.

• Be cautious of people claiming to be victims. If someone contacts you directly for help with something like a disaster or disease, they are likely to be scamming you. 

• Do not donate immediately over the phone. Do your research. 

You can also help those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma by sharing these tips with others. When more people are informed of these scams, more victims can get the help they need.
