Paying it Forward this Holiday Season

           I am doing something nice this holiday season . I wanted to share it with you all and see if anyone else wants to help. I am a very blessed girl. I have just exactly what I need plus a little bit more. This holiday season I want to share and spread holiday cheer. I am and have been on a strict no buy this entire month and will continue on through December. I am pooling all my extra money and money that I normally would spend on myself to use on gift bags that I am going to give away. So far I have not saved enough due to my tooth breaking recently but I have faith that I will have enough to get the things needed for the gift bags.

              Here is exactly what I am doing. I am compiling various makeup and beauty items and then I plan on sewing up makeup bags ( shown above). Approximately 10 bags. They will contain brushes, makeup, perfume, primer etc. I am purchasing makeup myself, taking money donations and product donations as well. So far I have had some generous donations of full size products, samples and discounts from these companies.

              However I still need more help!! I want these bags to be awesome!! I plan on spending over $10 on each bag with my own funds, plus all the donated items. I am asking if you own a makeup shop ,Can you donate just 4 samples in baggies sent with just a stamp? If so please email me at Glittermomto6@aol.com and I will give you the mailing information. If you would like to donate more than 4 samples or full size products please email me! Also if you donate PLEASE send business cards with your stuff so I can add them to the bags. I am also accepting small cash donations via Paypal. The amount is entirely up to you and if you would like your name included in the card please let me know.
Click the donate button to use Paypal.

                These bags will be sent out to ladies who are nominated by you. You can nominate yourself or someone you know who could use a pick me up. Maybe times are hard , or you just can't afford to treat yourself lately. Going through a tough time or do you just get overlooked during the holiday season because you are a mom? Anyone who could use a gift of cheer can be nominated. If I get more than 10 nominations I will randomly draw 10 names. I am going to send a card with a sample to every person nominated. There will not be anyone who is left out!! So you can see how this can be expensive for me as a mother to many kids. I need and want any help you all can offer! I love giving during the holiday season and I am so excited about this. If you want more information or want to nominate someone please email me. If you know of anyone who would be interested in donating products please pass this link along.

Thank you so much for reading and for being awesome,


  1. This is just the sweetest thing I have heard in a long time. I will have to go through my things to find something nice to share with others.

  2. Thank you so much Jess. If you want to email me I can give you my mailing address. I am so excited about these bags and I want to make them awesome!!!

  3. How do you nominate someone?

    Have a great day!

  4. Just email their name and address. Glittermomto6@aol.com

  5. This is such a sweet idea, really. I've been addicted to reading all these makeup blogs lately and feel like crap because there's so much that I want but I can't have.

    I'd like to nominate myself because I've been unemployed for nearly half a year and I'm struggling to just pay for basic necessities. I havent gotten anything "just for me" in a long time and sadly I can't even get anyone anything for xmas this year because I am so tight with my funds. This would be such a perfect pick-me-up for this season.

  6. Did my best to spread the word around on FB... I hope you get enough product donations! You are incredibly sweet to do such a thing. Good luck!
