It’s alluring, luscious and irresistible!!! It’s Serendipitous

I also have to mention that Serendipity 3 is restaurant located in New York City and “is the world’s only restaurant to have their own signature perfume”. When my daughter lived in New York City, she was told by friends and family that Serendipity 3 was a restaurant she had to go to. After many attempts and long lines, she told me once there it was worth the wait and the trip. The chocolate desserts were amazing, the atmosphere was fun and she couldn’t wait to go back.
Serendipitous is available at boutiques. Serendipity3.com and Luckyscent.com.

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.

Smell the roses before bedtime

If you like the scent of rose petals, you will love Vanity Planets Flower Child Moroccan Red Clay Mask. This mask smells amazing and you will smell the scent of roses as you relax during your red clay treatment and beyond.

This mask has other fine qualities: The Moroccan Red Clay  gently cleanses and exfoliates your skin. The texture is like powder and you can’t even feel the exfoliation taking place after applied. Your skin will feel soft, fresh and glowing as the clay reduces your  skin’s natural production of sebum. It’s suitable for all skin types but even better for oily skin. I have normal skin and this mask has not dried out my skin at all. It’s even better for oily skin.

It’s easy to use, simply had 1/2 tbls. of power in the palm of your hand and add water to mix until a smooth paste is formed. A nice feature to this mask is you do not have to wait until the mask drys completely. It isn’t even recommended as it could dry out your skin. Right before the mask begins to dry just rinse it off.  You will love how your skin feels and the rose scent is fabulous.

Vanity Planet Flower Child Moroccan Red Clay Mask is an organic powder and helps to stimulate circulation. It is All-Natural, Preservative-Free, Vegan, Cruelty-Free and made in the USA.

Head over to Vanity Planet  and view their extensive line of skincare, haircare, makeup and other health and wellness items.

Treat your hair and scalp to a little tea tree oil

When I am purchasing a Shampoo and Conditioner I always consider my hair type (curly) and then make my decision from there. I always fail to think of my scalp, that’s right, “the Scalp”. The scalp needs tender loving care, just like your hair. That is why I chose Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner from Maple HolisticsTea Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner will cleanse and condition your hair and scalp leaving them feeling moisturized and refreshed. The added moisture to your scalp will also minimize dry scalp and flaking. The botanical scent is very invigorating and very pleasant to the senses.

What I love about Maple Holistics and their Hair Care products is that they offer therapeutic benefits. The natural tea tree oil contained in the this shampoo can improve hair and scalp health while promoting hair growth and even slowing hair loss. Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner is formulated for men, women, and children and the Tea Tree Oil Shampoo is cruelty-free, parabens-free, GMO-free, gluten free, safe for color and all natural.

Tea Tree Oil Shampoo contains only a handful of ingredients like Aqua, Jojoba Oil, Botanical Keratin, Argan Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil. I read on their website that Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner can “potentially naturally eradicates lice” (this is an added benefit) if you have school aged children.

Visit their site at www.mapleholistics.com and view the other hair care and body care they have to offer. You won’t be disappointed.  Check out Maple Holistics free sample page  to our free samples page ( https://www.mapleholistics.com/free-sample/)

Mirenesse worked magic on my lashes

 

 

I consider my daughter a makeup expert. She is always aware of the latest trends, looks and quality of many types of make-up, especially the make-up she uses. She is most fussy about her mascara. She is enjoying her latest find, Mirenesse Secret Weapon Supreme 24Hr Mascara. As you can see from the photo, Mirenesse Secret Weapon Supreme 24Hr Mascara has created full and long lashes and I think they look amazing.

She likes the smooth formula as its key ingredients are Pantherol, organic waxes and is waterbased.  “This is a great mascara, it doesn’t clump, it’s easy to apply and doesn’t smudge.”

“Mirenesse” Secret Weapon Supreme 24Hr Mascara has an  Ultra-light Stretchable Elastic-Gel formula which will give you beautiful Glossy Length, Volume and base to tip Lash Lift.

My daughter also like the ”Bewitching Brush” (inspired by the shape of witches hat) she likes that it is tapered, allowing her to reach the smallest lashes on each end. The rounded wider part of wand allows her to create longer lashes.

Mirenesse is an Australian-owned company and their  products are all cruelty-free. At their website www.mirenesse.com you will find an array of mascara, and eyeliner to choose from. Mirenesse has worked wonders for her lashes and it will work wonders for you too!

FACE Atelier hides the dark circles for glowing skin

You would never know it by looking at this very small plastic container, but you will find inside, a dual tone concealer that packs a big punch. FACE Atelier was tested by my daughter and she got some fabulous before and after photos of what Face Atelier can do you you. (The photos are untouched and she tried to keep the lighting the same).

On this particular day, she noticed she had some dark color under her eyes. I asked her to try FACE Atelier’s Ultra Camouflage Duet and the results were stunning.  With careful application and a little practice, her dark color almost completely vanished. ThisUltra Camouflage Duet concealer has two color-matched shades that that perfectly if you have the right shade for your skin tone.  

The silicone in the formula guarantees that it will not flake, dry or crack. The finish is smooth without any makeup buildup. You ca apply your face powder and/or makeup right over the concealer as usual.

Another key ingredient in  FACE Atelier’s Ultra Camouflage Duet is Petrolatum. as stated at their website: “Petrolatum is considered to be among the most effective moisturizing ingredients available and is also known for its effectiveness in healing wounds. It can help the skin’s outer layer recover from damage, reduce inflammation, and generally heal the skin. Cosmetics-grade petrolatum is considered the safest, most non-irritating moisturizing ingredients ever found.”

FACE Atelier’s Ultra Camouflage Duet is oil free, fragrance free, non-comedogenic and vegan. You can find it at www.faceatelier.com. At the web site you will also find pro tips which will help you get the best possible look.
