It's missing a disposable razor and a travel-sized deodorant :) And maybe some mints?

I have a similar kit that I keep in my purse :)

I vote to add a Tide Stain remover pen and nail file.  I have one of these bags at the office.  I keep adding things to it!

Easy..everyone has thoughts, opinions, and feelings. Plus, we aren't face to face, only reading words and context can be misinterpreted. Sometimes a direct response and one you didn't expect may inflame you. We're people...fallible and hormonal lol. Add in beauty junkie, hoarder, subber, consumer, mascara fiend, glitter farts, occasional lippie overdoses and it can get Cray Cray... O_O

kind of a dumb question but i was spared from allergies. My mom and my sis had terrible food ones. If you eat something you are allergic to will the benadryl save you like an epi pen will?

HAHAHA I love that name! I guess you could include a pack of colgate wisps (though idk if dental hygiene would be a priority in an oh-sh*t moment); a cliff bar or something for protein; a couple aspirins, a pen, mini scissors, etc.

BB usually takes foreeeevver to ship out--the latest I've gotten mine was a good 10-11 days after I got the shipping confirmation email; that was when they were expanding. My Ipsy's always arrive well before my BB, but then again I'm on the total opposite side of the coast lol. I'd definitely chock it up to the hurricane for this month.

post #1300 of 2328

Birchbox wrote back and comped me 100 points for the cupcake because they're out of the sample. I'm pretty pleased since I now have $20 worth of comped points and will have ~$10 from my box reviews. So I essentially have gotten $30 in points and samples despite only paying for $20 of stuff. I actually would've rather gotten another cupcake -- and would've prefered the deluxe sample last month which was missing instead of being comped though. Am I weird in that I prefer getting stuff than points? XD;;

 

I'm going to try and salvage the cupcake and take pictures for my blog. At least I know I won't have to wait now for the new item to arrive... and it means I can eat the soy bar for breakfast tomorrow. Good thing because I'm completely out of breakfast food! icon_cheesygrin.gif

It won't save you but it will definitely buy you a little time til you can get to the hospital.

I have a severe peanut allergy and I have always found this to be true. I didn't get an Epi Pen until 3rd grade, so up until then, every school party mishap, Friendly's clown sundae debacle, or Easter candy incident, I took a swig of Benadryl and all was well.

Amen to that! LOL I posted this last night in a different thread but it seem appropriate here as well.

We all have to remember that we're not always going to agree and it's sometimes better to hit that back button than respond since it may just add fuel to the fire and things get out of control. Like Life is too short to be angry over trivial matters.

post #1304 of 2328

Do you think if I send an email to Birchbox complaining that their trademark color-hot pink- is reinforcing the female stereotypes, and therefore contributing to the insulting marketing campaigns directed towards females and reinforcing women's subjugation in society they will give me some points? 

 

(I really want free pink stuff that requires me to spend X minutes everyday to be "beautiful")

You lucky lucky. I always lusted after the Twiggys and Motorcycle bags, but I never really looked into the smaller bags. What year and style is that? And, to be nosey as all get out, would you mind telling me how much it was? I have always wanted one, but I just could never justify it.

Lotion...or maybe thats the little pink packet. Also q-tips sometimes my ear gets itchy but I do not want to stick my finger in my ear lol. Snack for sure, my blood sugar drops & need food asap. Also carry a little notepad...oh and phone charger.

2008 makeup clutch in bubblegum. I think it was around $400 - I would never spend that much on a makeup bag now but back when I had no kid, mortgage or care for saving I had a few. Most have been sold on ebay except for this and a 2010? Ruby.

Not saying that describes anyone specifically, just speaking for myself, I find myself sometimes getting mad about something stupid, then realizing I am genuinely mad about something else that I am trying to "be brave" about.
Very insightful. It definitely applies to me. I do find that at times when I'm dealing with serious issues, I can hold it together quite well, but will get crazed over stupid stuff - including my Birchbox.

Everyone gave me so many good suggestions I am going to have to switch this bag for a knapsack. LOL. I am obsessed with q-tips in my ear I can't believe I forgot those.

I make sure to carry Benadryl at all times. Well, ever since the day I stepped in a fire ant pile during a fire drill at work, anyway.

ClassyBroad - I also ALWAYS make sure I have a bottle of water (even those itty bitty ones).  It's perfect for drinking or using to wash out something (ie, wound) if there is no water around.  After I was stuck somewhere that didn't have running water - I was beyond happy that I carry a bottle with me.

 

Flashlight of some sort is a great saftey thing to have on hand.  If you get a flat or something - it's great to have, especially if you don't want to wear out your cell battery.  I carry a tiny one around. 

 

I really need to make up a little kit like this.  Maybe I'll make a small one up with one of my ipsy bags.

Holy moly!! Ouch! I am glad I only worry about bears, cougars, and raccoons! Exaggeration .... No cougars nearby anymore, but a bear was spotted close to a development a few miles away from my home..
Lol.. Still, snakes and bugs and anything creepy crawly freak me out.
post #1316 of 2328

I remember those nail shaped nail files. I have mine some where....

post #1317 of 2328

I just signed up for a second account and was told it would ship on the 26th of this month.. that is an AWESOME welcome box!!  Do you think the welcome box will still be the same for me?

I'm in a big city (at least I think it's big.  Half million people is big, isn't it?) two blocks from one of the busiest streets in the whole region (it's actually a state highway), but I'm also just a few blocks from the park where the Flaming Lips filmed their video for "Watching the Planets" (the one with all the naked people, although with strangely few tattoos given the area.  We have *extremely* liberal nudity laws here.  Yes, organized naked bike rides are A Thing here) and we have "lost kitty" signs next to...  Coyote watch signs.  The lost kitties?  My money (as well as my kitties' vet's money) is that the coyotes found them.

Maybe a pair of tweezers if you don't want to dig out a splinter with the pocketknife?

Yep! Sugar Baby, a skittish cat that was given to me.. she managed to get out of my old place and got mauled by a raccoon. frown.gif She was a big scaredy cat and hated going outside..you could leave the door open and she'd hide behind something.. dunno why she went out. Btw, she wasn't raised by me, but was raised as an indoor kitty.
