Pink Elephant Beauty Bag: Purse Junk Republican Girls NEED ;)


currently watching: “Almost Famous” starring Kate Hudson

171Okay girls–I’m an offender, so book me! Beauty book me–because my huge purses are always stuffed with way more than any girl could ever need to sustain her on a couple hour outing! But, as Republicans we know that organization is key–so as long as that purse junk consists of essentials perfectly compartmentalized, we can plead completely innocent!

These are my personal faves I could not live without! They definitely are up to Pink Elephant standards! And we all know…those are high.


John Freida Brilliant Brunette Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner

WHY? Because we’re fiscally responsible but still want our locks polished to the perfection of Palin’s! Who said blondes have more fun? But since I don’t discriminate (and from time to time, depending on my mood, I am blonde myself ;)) I also suggest John Freida Sheer Blonde Shimmering Highlights products for maintaining Meghan and Cindy-like flawless blonde strands ๐Ÿ™‚

Brunettes and blondes alike will both absolutely adore Bed Head’s Headrush Shine Spray!


Essie nail color in Poor Lil’ Rich Girl

WHY? Because women of the Right wear Red and this shade compliments absolutely every skin complexion. Also…

Vaseline healthy hand & nail conditioning

Because nothing protects delicate skin better from the cold winds blowing in from Nancy Pelosi’s general direction!


St. Ives Apricot Scrub

WHY? Because unlike AIG tycoons, you want to be squeaky clean ๐Ÿ˜‰ but also try…

bare minerals i.d. bare vitamins

Well-behaved women rarely make history. So put your best face forward!

Signature Scent:

TO EACH HER OWN! Your signature scent is uniquely you but a couple of my favorites that I keep in miniature in my purse at all times are–

Burberry Classic by Burberry

Green Tea by Elizabeth Arden

Instant Vacation by Avon (because we can’t be in the islands EVERY DAY!) and layer it (for a healthy translucent bronze shimmer) with Victoria Secret’s Bare Bronze Body Oil.


Republican women make themselves heard when they speak. For a conservative but glossy daytime look I love love love Victoria Secret’s ‘Nilla Fudge Beauty Rush Lip Gloss. That’s serious (but tasty!) lip service.

What kind of Pink Elephant doesn’t want perfectly pink flushed cheeks?! My absolute favorite cheek stain of all time can be found at Sephora, Tarte Cheek Stain in Flush. This color goes great with soft eyes which you can totally achieve with Clinique’s Eye Shadow Duo in Twilight Mauve and Brandied Plum.

Did you envy Cindy McCain’s perfectly bronzed complexion at the Republican National Convention? I did. These products can help you get close! Try L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Body Lotion (sparingly until you reach your best shade!), Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Bronzer, and No. 7 Instant Sunshine Shimmer Gel! But remember, the classiness of Mrs. McCain’s style originates in the following philosophy: less is more! It’s the middle of winter. People expect you to be sunkissed, not sunburnt!

Reading Material:

heygirlhey, get yourself a subscription to SELF. It’s not Vogue, but it will teach you how to vogue in your own, “uniquely you” way. This mag is all about empowering you, physically, mentally, and emotionally, all kumbaya hand-holding aside. Check out their great, easy, healthy, recipes that totally fit into any life or work style. Hate going to the gym? Don’t have the money or the time? Get buff at home for free and this mag will teach you how. Practical solutions for practical women who want to be strong, not starved!

When Character Was King: A Story of Ronald Reagan by Peggy Noonan. It’ll teach you the power of faith, perseverance, undaunted fear and unabashed conservatism, in case you haven’t learned them already, need a quick refresher or pick-me-up, or just love Ronnie like I do.

For your iPOD:

“A Public Affair” by Jessica Simpson. Likeย  your day to day life, politics is a messy business–made so by the fact that many people want to poke their noses into it ๐Ÿ™‚

“Listen to the Music” byThe Doobie Brothers. Because even on the worst day, the music is there if you take a quiet moment to find it (or check out Meghan McCain’s playlists on which is one of my favorite sites)! Remember:ย behappy2

“Citizen/Solder” by Three Doors Down. Alternative Rock hasn’t deserted our cause yet! Unlike some country folks I can’t speak for (**cough**Toby Keith and the Dixie Chicks**cough**) Please see my past posting on Travis and Johnathan’s “Red State Update” ( detailing why we depend on country singers to be good Republicans ๐Ÿ˜‰

“Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” by Elton, of course! Why? Because it’s just great, that’s why (and it reminds us we’re all in it together).ย  Did that last minute adage sound a tad liberal? And by liberal I mean mushy. Not a bit. At the end of the day we’re all Americans. But really, don’t worry, I won’t let my bleeding heart stain your carpet ๐Ÿ™‚

“All Summer Long” byKid Rock from Rock ‘N Roll Jesus. Because if Jesus rocks and rolls, so can you.

“Hero/Heroine” by Boys Like Girls. It’s just fab, that’s why.

“Gimme Shelter” by The Stones. ‘Cause the stock market’s come tumblin’ down.

“Radar” by Britney Spears. Raise your hand if you love lookin’ at Mitt Romney!

“4 Minutes” by Madonna and JT. That’s what we’ve got until Vice President Biden says something incredibly inappropriate that makes the country cringe.

“Takin’ Care of Business” by Bachman Turner Overdrive. That’s what our W did when he ducked that shoe like it was his job! I’d totally pick him first for my dodge ball team any day of the week and twice on Sundays.


Gossip Girl with a side of Ciao Bella Ice Cream (mmm Pistachio).

Because sometimes we need a break from the economic crisis. And we’re open minded enough to try anything once…twice if we like it! You’ll keep coming back for more of these two.

Stay Beautiful!ย smile1Love, Colleen
