I know I’ve been M.I.A. for a minute. But I have come down with a bad cold! I haven’t seen mascara in days. What’s worst is that I feel so miserable that makeup is the last thing on my mind. I’ve been so out of it, I couldn’t even read my latest magazines. It’s just been me, a glass of juice and my crumpled kleenex. This pitiful scenario has got me thinking. Is there a way to not look quite as miserable as you feel when you’re not feeling well? Makeup may not be the answer, but cute pajamas and a few “cold” accessories are the key.
One that comes to mind is the Ice Pouch. No longer is it a non-descript rubber wad your grandparents used to have. Thanks to companies like Ice Pouch and Gal Pal, you can soothe a headache or sore muscles in style. I picked this one up at Marshall’s for just $7.99. What I love about it is that it’s compact, has a screw top, and no leaks. No more frozen green peas in a towel. It also doubles as a hot water bottle. There are also the fuzzy wuzzy teddy bears you can buy that do the same thing. Personally, I can do without the fuzz. There’s something about recuperating in style that makes you feel a little bit better. Just a little bit. Now, I just need to find a cute kleenex holder for my purse.
