Do Some Good While Shopping For Christmas

Well in staying true to my last blog, which was on MONDAY, it's been another insanely hectic week! I have been running errands, Christmas shopping (plus returns and exchanges already, whew), and prepping for our upcoming family trip to NYC with our two boys! I've never flown with our children before, so I've been furiously buying up all sorts of "entertainment" for them while they are on the flight.

**On a non-makeup note- if you have any tips for flying with a 3 year old and a 1 year old- PLEASE comment and give me a heads up of how to make it a pleasurable flight for all involved!! JennySue thanks you in advance! I'm already nervous about keeping the temper tantrums at bay!**

So for a quick makeup product report, you can do some good for others while shopping for those on your nice list!!

MAC cosmetics is donating every cent of their proceeds from the sale of their Viva Glam lip palette ($23) to the HIV/AIDS charities here in the U.S. and abroad. And as you all should know, Viva Glam V lipstick is one of my all time fave colors, and this palette contains it, as well as the Viva Glam VI lipstick and the Glam V lipgloss. So you get three lip products in their cutesy polka dotted square compact along with it's own lip brush and mirror. That means you're getting 3 of their best selling products in one for a steal of a price. Pam Anderson, one of their spokes people, is a big fan of the Glam V color and is wearing it in this photo-sorry it's not the best picture she's ever taken, but you get the drift;-)

These are all really great neutral pink colors that flatter all skin tones. You cannot go wrong buying this for your mom, best friend, sis, school teacher, yourself, whoever!! So do some good while making someone more beautiful.

Hey Jenny - it's Alison from MOPS.......

Items that keep my daughter entertained on a flight -

Blue Painter's Tape believe it or not - hours of entertainment it peels off and sticks to everything without sticking permanently.

Colorforms - we had the wonder pets version

Pipe cleaners

Wikki Stix - these are little bendy pieces of string coated with wax - they form shapes and pictures, etc

Some tips I got from a blog called Delicious Baby that is a blog about traveling with kids!

Have fun and hope to see you soon!

You are a saint Allison- thanks for all those wonderful tips! I will let you know how it all goes once the NYC trip is over. I appreciate your mommy input;-)

Well...I don't have children BUT you can carry mini-bottles of liquor onto planes (supposedly). As long as they are under 3 ounces and fit into your ziploc bag, you can take them...might help YOU get through the plane ride.

Good luck!

Ha! Thanks April- ANYTHING to get through the plane ride there and back is well appreciated. And I had no idea about the "airplane" bottles being allowed, but the description makes sense huh? Who knew. Will you keep you posted on my methods of surviving the flight!
