  1. >I just snagged up abunch of 0.69 Wet n Wild lipsticks & liners from Walgreens to send. Plus I am thinking about getting 25 products from E.L.F for $25 and getting the deal with the 10 free shadows they have going on…I've just been watching the documentary of Very Young Girls as well. I wish I could just jar up abunch of Persephone Minerals stuff but I have pretty much run out of jars and sample bags! Since I am in the middle of moving, there's no point in making an order for a shipment of jars. It wouldn't get here by the time I move.

  2. >@Persephone: Every little bit helps! And it's SO appreciated by all who are involved!! Thank you so much for helping out :)I hope your move goes smoothly, and you get settled in soon ❤

  3. >What a great initiative 🙂 let me figure out some way that I can contribute!

  4. >This is such an amazing cause. I'm going to have to find a way to help out
