  While I wish I could wake up in the morning with an Instagram-filter on my face to cut out the pre-makeup flaws, life just doesn't work that way.

tsa friendly beauty products

Today I am traveling by myself, 8 months prego, for 8 hours, with two kids under 4 (say a prayer for me). I think by the end I might be a little frazzled and in desperate need of a glass of wine that I can't have, a new brain, and a beauty pick-up. Along with me for this 8-hour jaunt are a few TSA-friendly beauty products that I will be tucking away in my cosmetic bag so that I look as if I held myself together the-whole-time. Speaking of that, I think what stresses me out more than hauling my kids around is the potential of getting the death glare from grown adults who know better. And, if they say anything negative to me, they might just be needing to borrow my TSA-Friendly beauty products because we will have words...and I will win. Can you tell I am already mentally … [Read more...]
