Mini Kittour: Traveling in style

Many thanks and kudos to the makers of the mini kittour who sent me their Jet Setter, a deluxe travel train case, to take on my trip in three short weeks.  Featuring 6 TSA-approved custom bottles and 2 medium jars, makeup brushes, a mirror, pill case, key ring plus waterproof label kit and Sharpie, this kit will accommodate all my beauty essentials, and then some.
Plus, it looks like something Gina Lollobrigida might have carried.

Wow, nice gift, but for me would take up too much room in my airplane carry on luggage. Now for a lovely 2 week car trip to a resort, sure! I stockpile samples and travel size everything for cosmetics and toiletries. Another fun thing is buying something you need when you get there. European pharmacies are a wondrous world of products and knowledgeable staff. Planning my trip capsule wardrobe today so I can fill in any gaps.

You make a good point and, for that reason, I may take the groovy bottles out and put them in my hanger-style makeup case.

Well guess what girls - the case can we your carry on - its that great - and Cathy they make a hanger bag case as well filled with little goodies - and comes inside another outer bag great for toting essentials to the gym or beach while on vacation - but the best about mini kittour it those little plastic cases designed by a packaging expert with airtight seals and spray and pump mechanisms like you have never seen on travel plastic bags...I LOVE THIS LINE!!!!

It's true, the spray and pump mechanisms will be great. I've always hated to carry huge bottles of hairspray and gel with me. I prefer hanger bags for those tight bathrooms (like I'm expecting in Italy). But, if I'm allowed only one carry-on bag, the larger kit would be a tad big.

I'll be back after these messages

Boy, I thought I'd never see the old blog again after the whirlwind of life I've had - and am still having - this fall.  Thanks for not giving up on me.
First, the wedding in late October came off with only one hitch. (Don't get me started on over-extended wedding planners.) I ended up cobbling an outfit together from Chico's in taupe (my spin on the mother-of-the-groom mandate: Wear beige and keep your mouth shut), threw on a bunch of pearls and an autumnal pashmina, and did my own hair. Boom! Done. The beautiful Sunday evening wedding in the country culminated a week-long string of activities I have come to call Burning Man East due to the predominance of bonfires at various celebrations. Big fun, big exhaustion.
Three days after the newlyweds returned to Brooklyn, my son summoned the hubs to Game 5 of the World Series in Queens (in which the home team was playing the Mets.) The kid flew his old man to NYC,  bought tickets for themselves and two others, and put him u…

Sabi: Helping your medicine cabinet look hip

I've always said that the companies who figure out how to make aging cool will win baby boomers' hearts in the end (or, better yet, a decade or two before the end.) The stakes are high. There are 78 million of us and gazillions of dollars to be made on our inevitable decline. Enter Sabi. With a mission " create products that are intuitively and beautifully designed in order to infuse life’s daily rituals with delight," Sabi boasts that their products "marry superb functionality, simplicity, and aesthetics to make the most mundane to-dos – from taking your daily vitamins to taking out the trash – more enjoyable." I received this bevy of review samples in the mail yesterday: pill folio (aka: 'pill organizer'), dispenser, chopper, crusher and holster. I have to admit, I like the look - sleek, simple and utilitarian....although two of my friends have said they'd need 3 pill folios to hold all their supplements. (Sigh.) Still, I give it two…

Gray hair: A luxury anyone can afford.

I got one of those back-handed compliments on my gray hair from a stranger today: "I wish I could do it. But, I'm afraid of looking old....oh, gawd....but YOURS looks great... really!!" 
    No harm, no foul. It's happened before.
    Charla Krupp, author of "How Not to Look Old," once said, "it's such a luxury to be able to go gray. Because it is an aging look, and it means that you don't care about people knowing your age." 
    She was probably right. Thankfully, I've never been shy about stating my age - it's 56, for the record - or asking others their number, especially when playing 'Who do you know?' The gentler, albeit sneakier, way is asking the year they graduated high school, but sometimes I forget and just blurt it out, often taking people aback.
      But, does it bother me? The looking older part, I mean?
      No. But, admittedly, I'm married. I'm not in the meat market, the job market, or any othe…
