Getting ready to go out can be frustrating when it comes to cosmetics. When traveling in another state or country, this problem only becomes trickier. Many women resort to dumping their makeup bag onto their counter to quickly find the specific item or items they need. This leads to lost beauty products and a mess on the counter. However Lay-N-Go, the creators of the Lay-N-Go activity mat for children’s toys, developed a new product to relieve the pains of makeup chaos.
Lay-N-Go Cosmo Cosmetics Case ($29.95 for solid design, $34.95 for patterned and metallic) converts from a portable clutch to a countertop makeup mat, letting the user access all of her makeup accessories. The mat is 20 inches wide and has a small lip around its perimeter to contain the makeup items while keeping unwanted bathroom counter water out. When finished, the mat, and all the items on it, compresses back into a small bag. This product comes with a pocket for loose jewelry and is machine washable. It can be purchased in hot pink, blue, lime green, purple, black, gold, silver, sapphire, leopard, zigzag and snakeskin.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Online shopping continues to soar in popularity with more people choosing to browse an entire catalogue of options instead of making a trip to the store. It makes sense because people are busy and sometimes don’t have time to spend hours browsing a store only to buy a few outfits. When shopping online, people can buy items sporadically or fill up carts and purchase them later. Online shopping is now more than just searching on the web, it’s also swiping through an app. Apps make it easier than ever to keep up with sales, new items and trends.
